My group of 6 couples stayed here in late March for a birthday getaway from Vancouver. We each had our own suites, but one couple made sure to book room 15 (the top floor room with a patio, kitchen and view), so we spent lots of time just hanging out on the patio there. The service was great and the... More

I stayed here on two separate trips in December, in Suites 15 & 16. Both suites had full kitchen set ups and Suite 15 has a gas fireplace, deck, and excellent water views. Quiet location, perhaps due to being off season, and unique historic charm with spacious rooms & high ceilings. Suite 15 is the best as a large studio... More

We stumbled upon the Waterstreet Hotel after a horrible night in a hostel. All we wanted was a place to sleep and to sort out our bags for the four days of camping we had planned. A very cosy place, comfy bed and clean. We chose room 14 at the top of the stairs. It was ashamed bathroom, but had... More

Okay, we were looking for something different and inexpensive for a single night. That objective was definitely achieved. We did not pre-book, so were able to review the available rooms. The building is truly fantastic. High ceilings, period furnishings, magnificent central atrium. The rooms vary considerably from smallish shared-bathroom to imperial grandeur with sweeping sea views. We opted for an... More

The ladies at the Info Centre suggested the Waterstreet Hotel when we said that we wanted an inexpensive hotel downtown. They warned us that it was not it is not much to look at on the outside. The reception is a lady in the adjacent gift store who said go have a look at the empty rooms upstairs. There was... More

The Waterstreet Hotel is charming, spotlessly clean, and has the friendliest staff! It was a treat to stay in such a historic place filled with pictures, furniture, and memorabilia from its 100+ year history. We highly recommend it!

i have stayed at the waterstreet on 3 separate occasions. the rooms are very clean and decorated in the 'old style' you would expect from a heritage building. i prefer to book rooms without a washroom...cost less... and the share washrooms are always very clean. note there are about 30 stairs to get to the 1st floor.

My husband and I were just planning on a day trip to Port Townsend when we discovered this fantastic hotel. We went into the store front "just to see" how much the rooms cost, and Mary, the hotel/store proprietor, invited us to take a look upstairs at any of the open rooms and see if we were interested in staying...

What a quaint charming authentic "back in time " hotel. The antiques, the large windows with pulled back curtains and 1800's bedspread, were part of the atmosphere. We were welcomed by a kind women who recommended a yummy cafe for breakfast. We will return to this fun place.
