We made the mistake of saving some $$ by taking an interior room and was it a mistake! The interior room we had was nearly air-tight and we had a very poor sleep. No doubt the rooms with a view are better but all I have to go on is our experience. Otherwise the hotel was fine. Checkin staff were... More

We arrived in Port Townsend to discover the annual wooden boat show was on, so we were not certain we could get a room without a reservation. We saw the vacancy sign, and gave it a try. We got an oceanside, upstairs, corner Room. It was perfect. We slept like royalty, and awoke to a sunny morning with deer swimming... More

Spent 3 nights at the Tides Inn and really enjoyed evenings on the deck. Got some great shots of the Super Moon and the Ferry (just 1.5 blocks away) and all the sail boats. Room was a little musty but we picked up a vanilla candle in town and that fixed it. We will be returning and next time want... More

This hotel was disgusting! Old, run down, and dirty. It smelled, very very musty. One window missing a screen. Dirty finger prints on doors, soiled bed spread with a tear. Parking area dirty with cigarette butts on ground. In general the grounds were not well maintained. It sounded like a generator kept firing up periodically throughout the night.So sad the... More

The bed was comfortable! Amazing view! Could have been a little cleaner, but clean enough that I was comfortable. Could update the old coffee maker and coffee cups. The decor is a bit out dated. Instead of the giant mirror above the fire place I think they should have the tv there, so you can see it from the bed.... More

Stayed in August; weather was very warm, no air conditioning. Room was in the older part of property, it was very small, bathroom even smaller with no counter-top, just a small shelf in front of mirror, the mirror was tilted down so I could not see my face when shaving, anyone six foot or more would find it pretty useless....

The views are awesome. One night in this place is about right, more, you'd notice it's deficits. The hotel staff is very accommodating and friendly. You have a problem with the facility, they try to fix it. For example, our room was supposed to have wifi, but I couldn't log in to it. The guy at the front desk even... More

well. it's got a view. a great view, but........ if you're expecting charm and elegance for the rate you're being charged. not so much. old and run down. definetly needs some help, and the jetted tub on the deck is just that an old jetted bath tub. we would not stay again for the price we paid, which was 159.00...

We missed a ferry to Coupeville and had to spend a night in Port Townsend. I read reviews on various affordable hotels and this one seemed promising. We got a double room with a small balcony on the water. The furniture was a bit tacky, but it was very clean and comfortable. The morning sunrise over the water was beautiful.... More
