We found the Tides Inn to be very convenient location for exploring the local area. The Inn has some older buildings and a new addition, offering a good price range for those on a travel budget. We stayed in the new building, and the room was very well appointed with the separate bathroom, quality shower, and a jacuzzi in a... More

We stayed at the Tides Inn - Port Townsend for our 40th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful and a great romantic get-a-way!! We had a large room in the new section with water view and the large in-room jacuzzi. I suggest the 2nd or third floors so you can enjoy the water view, sunrises and clouds and keep the curtains...

We were in Port Townsend on a whim and could only get a room at Tides Inn. At first we were unsure because we stayed in the older part, the rooms are small and the air was not working. However, the bed ended up being comfortable, the shower was hot with excellent water pressure, the room was clean, and it... More

We don't know how we find these dumps, but this is another one to avoid. It's website is excellent and inviting - gee, another reason to not believe everything you see or read online. It's hard to describe the room, other than it was L shaped with bathtub in the short side of the L, across from an impossible to... More

My friend and I happened upon this little gem when we were in port Townsend, and we were so glad we did! This inn is right on Port Townsend Bay, and the very kind manager gave us a corner room with a private balcony that extended to both sides of the room, with a view across the bay. The room... More

This hotel was disgusting! Unlocking the door, the first experience is the smell of an old musty room. All of the rooms in the old building are old and run down. They have never been updated! Check in staff was reasonable as was the continental breakfast. Please make sure you reserve the newer part of this hotel ..

My mother and I stayed here in Port Townsed late October 2014. Our room was outdated but very clean and comfortable. We had a decent sized deck that overlooked the water with a jetted tub. A jetted tub on the deck seemed odd to me at the time but I loved it. Soaking in the jets watching the fishing boats... More

We had the last room available and it was very nice. What impressed us the most was the guy at the reception. He was very professional and very pleasant. He did anything to help us but what impressed us the most was that after some of the hotel guest had spilled glass on the parking lot. he asked somebody to... More

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
