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

We loved this quirky historic hotel. We had a very affordable suite with a kitchen and living room. Perfect for families. Kitchen had everything we needed. Cute gas fireplace kept the place cozy in the winter. Beautiful view. But not a fancy place, just right for the town. And so close to everything.

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and decided to bring a group of friends back here to celebrate the New year. The hotel is OLD so be ready for that. The decor is dated (but clean) and there are lots of stairs. If you can get by all that then this is a great place... More

We decided to stay at this hotel for the history. The staff was great, a couple in front of us were checking in and another staff member who was on his way home for the day turned back and helped us. gave us a list of available rooms and we were allowed to go and choose one we wanted. All... More
