My brother and I have been staying at the Waterstreet Hotel for over a decade each year when we go to the Centrum Jazz Festival. This is a wonderful place to stay if you like Victorian atmosphere, clean rooms, and real people. We have had wonderful, consistently good experiences for a decade or more. This is a small town, and... More

It's entirely possible that you could enjoy your time in this hotel, but we were very disappointed. We thought, "Great! An old-fashioned historic hotel in a historic old town!" In fact, the hotel just made us feel poor for staying there (despite the fact that the room cost almost $200 as we were there in high season). Feeling poor on... More

Historic hotels often have historic mattresses but not our room at the Watersreet. We had a room at the front of the hotel so no water view but we weren't bothered by street noises. We were woken early by seagulls though! The room was large and airy. The ceiling fan kept us comfortable even during the heatwave of early August.

We flew 2000 miles, from Eastern time zone to the Pacific time zone, and we had a very long day. Our first night in WA was to be spent in this lovely old hotel next to the water. I reserved room 6. Before our flight I called and spoke to the proprietor who gave me directions from the airport and... More

This is lovely old hotel in the middle of town that let's you step back in time. The rooms are nice, the prices good and the desk help friendly. If you can't spend the night, at least ask to see a room.

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful place (right on the water!) recently. Mary, the front desk lady, was fantastic and SO helpful, we were even able to stay an extra unexpected night! The ceilings are high, no air conditioning but the fans kept the room a pleasant temperature, and the sink and desk in the room were charming. The bathrooms are... More

Had a great visit, friendly and professional desk help, very reasonably prices. Oh, and surprise, surprise, the desk help was so-called "scary" Mary. We like antique, a bit funky but not dirty or uncool places, this was like Hotel Oregon in McMinnville by McMenamins, so if you like something like that, this is the place. We would definitely stay here... More

I enjoyed staying here for a couple of nights in February. Great rates and location. Lots of character and a nice change from the regular hotel. Rooms are plenty large. I shared a bathroom with no complaints. It's an older hotel so there is some noise between the rooms. Looking forward to staying here again on my next trip to... More

This hotel on the main street of Port Townsend WA is not a Motel 6, this is not the Ritz, this is an authentic OLD time hotel that is much the same as it was 100 years ago - except the floors creak more and the furniture is not all authentic. The views you see from the hotel are great... More
