We stayed one night and I am glad I didn't book it for the weekend. Yes, the location is awesome and the views are beautiful. But, our room was a blast from the late 70's. It looked sleazy and worse it felt dirty to stay in that room! The bathroom was honestly tiny and I am only 5ft. There was... More

We stayed here one night last week. The front desk staff was nice. When we got to our room, we were a little surprised at how gaudy the decor is. There was an uncomfortable gaudy love seat, fake leather I believe, and a matching and just as uncomfortable gaudy chair. The balcony was small and barely fit two chairs. The... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. The room was very large and nice. We had a lovely view of the water. The people were friendly, the room was clean, and breakfast was good. This was a great location for whale watching and wandering around the town. There was a fridge and microwave, a balcony, and a spa. The spa... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our PREMIUM room (newer building). The water front view from the deck of the room is beautiful with view of both the Cascades and Olympic mountains. All our rooms in our newer building and majority of our rooms in the original building have the water front view with a deck. Thank you... More

This is our favorite town to visit. We live in Leavenworth so we like to go to the ocean for get away time. Pleasant front desk, nice little breakfast, and rooms right on the water. The rooms are very clean also.

We were excited to try out Tides Inn because of the newly renovated rooms and the fact that there was an in room jacuzzi. Unfortunately the room pictures on their website are so small when you book that you cannot tell whether the room was the newly renovated or not, well ours was not. The decor was WAY out of... More

We are sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations. We have recognized the limitations with our website pictures and have already hired a web designer firm to design a new website, including new photos of the room. Our plan is to have the new website available within the month. As far as the smoke order, we are a... More

We stayed in the "upscale" building and it was fabulous! Comfy, warm, jacuzzi, fireplace, clean, beautiful view, easy to walk over a few rocks to put kayak in for wonderful kayaking around the port, good breakfast, nice people.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you sharing your review. Although we have many guests that enjoy the STANDARD rooms in our original building, the PREMIUM rooms in our newer building are definitely more "upscale" with premium amenities and settings. Having two very distinctive accommodations at different price points offer our guests... More

My first trip to Port Townsend on the spur of the moment for a weekend getaway. I didn't make my reservation until after 6 pm on the Friday evening I was arriving.

I booked this room after finding it had a balcony with a jacuzzi... I thought how romantic, right? NOT EVEN CLOSE! The room was clean and the bed was soft, but the sliding glass door to the balcony was almost impossible to open and the screen door didn't close at the top unless forced. The jacuzzi was old, but functioned... More

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and will pass on your praises to our front desk staff. I will also ensure our staff is more specific about the distance to downtown, which is little less than 1/4 mile (5 minute walk). Thank you again for your stay and we look forward to having you back.

Stayed in Room 24, which is one of the few dog-friendly rooms on the premises. This room has a separate entrance with a porch and a great water view. The two queen-size beds were very comfortable and the room has a small refrigerator and microwave. The hotel offers a very nice continental plus breakfast; "plus" because it is far more... More
