as a washington island tourist, "outdated' or "rustic" accommodations will be typical. businesses have 3 summer months to generate revenue... considering this, findlay's delivers a decent room (only $70!) and delicious breakfast (not complimentary) with friendly service. like the island residents, the owners are generous and hospitable.

Stayed in the Holiday Too across from the "Holiday Inn." The building takes rustic to a new level...the side entrance door is rotting off the hinges, not only doesn't lock, but doesn't come close to shutting. It looked like they quit in the middle of outside spring cleanup. The rake was left laying in a pile of leaves and it... More

I had read previous reviews, but thought that at this point in time, the owners would have made positive steps. The good news: very good food in their lovely dining room; yard and view were pleasing to the eye; the water from the tap tasted very good. But....the bad news: the musty, moldy smell almost had us cancel and go... More

This motel had a beautiful view from our room. It was a little dusty. My biggest complaint is the bed. Worst. Bed. Ever. It was impossible to sleep soundly when every movement made an incredibly Loud squeak, squeak, squeak. Not worth the price we paid.

Nice clean breakfast visits over the years. Honest food, service, and prices. Friendly staff. This is an easy walk fronm the ferry dock and close to a few interesting and eclectic shops. We have never been disappointed.

Bad place to stay if you have a desire for cleanliness or have bad allergies. The hotel is older as well as the furnishings. It smells old and musty. My dust and mold allergies were greatly aggravated to the point of a sinus infection. The ownwers seem to work hard and be dedicated but the place is lacking. Most likely... More

The hotel is a friendly family-run establishment with beautiful grounds, but there are some negatives. The rooms are rather outdated; especially the bathrooms and bedsheets could use updating...some stains/holes on bedsheets/pillowcases and old shower curtains are somewhat hard to ignore. Moreover, the rate is somewhat over-priced for the feel of the property--paying a bit more than what you'd get out... More

We stayed at Findlay's on a Wednesday evening during a bicycling tour of Door County. We wanted to see Washington Island and enjoyed the challenge of catching a ferry when you don't have a car to make up for lost time. We made the 5:00 pm ferry with plenty of time to spare. We found Findlay's to be OK in... More

This inn was just okay but not a bad place to stay by any means. Best part about it was the little restaurant in the inn that obviously is a favorite breakfast place of the locals. Breakfast was delicious and it's certainly the bread and butter of that place. We stayed on the first floor but I'd recommend the second... More

We had stayed here 25 years ago in the original inn before it burned down. So when it came time for our 25th wedding anniversary we decided to return to the Holiday Inn and Wash Is. We had a great time on the island, but Findlay's was a huge disappointment. Its not bad per se. But its not good. The... More
