This hotel was definitely not worth the money I paid. We were on a weekend to celebrate our 32nd anniversary and thought we were getting a great place to enjoy. We paid for a room with a view and got a view of the harbor but the room smelled stale and the pillows were a little ball of fluff. The... More

I am not one to complain but This hotel is a real dump! We searched online and found this to be a pet friendly hotel. We were traveling with our dog on this trip. Needless to say the room smelled like fresh cat pee with a hint of dog puke! My wife told me she wouldn't even let the dog... More

Take this hotel for what it is, a well located but older budget motorlodge. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Every room has a water view and is spacious. This is a very quiet location.The proximity to Boat Haven is ideal and it is the best dock walk you'll ever have. Yes, carpets and bedspreads have seen better days and have... More

OMG Lets start off with are you serious? Wow they have some interesting stuff there. Lets say if your going to be staying there, you need to really prepare yourself for the stay. You know, like: take your own extra towels and anything you think you might need. Upon arrival there we hated the place and we were stuck there... More

After all the terrible reviews of this hotel, I was honestly apprehensive about staying there with my wife. No reason to be. This hotel is fine. People need to realize this is an older motor lodge in an out of the way tourist town. Yes, it was overpriced, but consider that they only have tourist activity 4-6 months per year.... More

And that is saying a lot. It's location in Port Townsend is perfect. It is across the street from the boat harbor and all rooms have the great view of the water and islands in the distance. The staff is especially smiling, friendly, helpful, and good at what they do. I had stayed here four times before years ago and... More

We stayed here as a recommendation from the Visitor's Information office in Port Townsend. We had tried at several other Inns but everything was very booked. The room was on the top floor and was listed as 'king sized bed and jacuzzi'. It was pricey for the condition of the room and building. The pool hadn't been cleaned for awhile... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for the Wooden Boat Festival. It isn't the most luxurious of hotels, but it was clean, conveniently located for walking to the festival, shopping, and restaurants. This is the second year we stayed there, and likely will again.

Port townsend is a remarkable town with lots to enjoy. We went for this years Art Festival and stayed at the Harborside. It was clean, and we had a great view on the third floor. But the towels were thin, hotel needs updating, and the breakfasts were all carbs...not a single protein. Would only stay there again if that was... More

We reserved online, coming from out of state for a wedding. The town was booked up. Website photos of lobby make this waterfront motel look like a nice place. Do not be fooled by the photos and text there! (Lobby was in fact ok and clerks at desk polite, but helpless or uninterested in making amends for the horrible accomodations,... More
