Don't be fooled by the photos of the lovely Victorian home. Most of the building is now a restaurant, and the remaining "hotel" rooms are mostly neglected adjacent buildings. I stayed in the "Patio Room", which appears to be a converted garage, furnished with an assortment of mismatched thrift store furniture. The room is tiny, webby, and the carpet is... More

A girlfriend and I spent the night here for a quick getaway from the kids. This is not a typical bed and breakfast, but it met our needs. The downstairs of this quaint old house is a Thai Restaurant. The bedrooms are upstairs or in a separate "cottage" outside. The owner met us on site to check us in, but... More

We booked the "cottage" with the inn. Features included an overgrown weed-ridden "yard", rotting steps outside the door ("Oh, we don't use that door"), no soap at either sink, pubic hair on the toilet, trash behind the bathroom door, unmade bed, and deep layers of dust on unadorned shelves, tables, lampshades (some, but not all, of which had working light...

The room was just okay, but it definitely could have used a good cleaning. The location is fairly central and you can walk to the beach or... More

The Inn at Penn Cove is a bed and breakfast housed in an historic two storey house on a well-treed corner lot on Main Street in Coupeville, near the Island County courthouse and jail. It is a quiet and charming location in small-town America. The house has a Thai restaurant on the main floor. The property includes guest rooms on... More

This is not your usual Bed & Breakfast, where you sleep in a decorated bedroom and hang around in the living room or on the porch, sipping sherry. The rooms are upstairs, above a Thai restaurant on the main floor. Btw the food at the restaurant (The Cove) is very good. We ate our dinner there both nights during our... More
