It was through a discount voucher that we heard about this inn. We think it is just fabulous. Some complain about the very things we love: creaky floors, sketchy WiFi, no TV (yay!). We were in Room 6 that provided a spectacular sunrise beginning about 5:30 in late August. The living room --- with current NY Times, Financial Times, Wall... More

Visited for a wedding over the weekend. Must say it is a beautiful old inn. Pictures were stunning with amazing weather. Lagoon rooms have private bathrooms, but be warned the Inn rooms have shared mens and womens bathrooms. Overall was a very nice visit.

Stayed 2 nights for my sister's wedding which was in Oak Harbor. Our cabin on the water was very charming and the overall atmosphere of the place delivers on the woodsy cabin feeling if that is what you are going for. If you want modern luxury though, this is not the place. You are paying for location and atmosphere. Services... More

Beautiful grounds on scenic Whidbey Island just on Penn Cove. Great gardens and water views. We stayed at the Inn. Good thing it was an Amazon local or Living Social deal or I would have been really upset. Not sure about the cottages or the lagoon rooms. Our first day we checked in. He made sure we knew we paid... More

My family and I decided to stay at the Inn over the 4th of July weekend and left after the first night....Our room was called (by the front desk, in error) 4 times from 11pm to 2AM. The rooms are dingy and dank, the beds are sunken and worn. After making 4 calls over three weeks to discuss the issue,... More

Stayed here for a couple of days in July. I have to say that this hotel has a great deal of charm and is in a fantastic location... SO beautiful! We stayed in a lagoon cabin, which gave us the feeling of being in our own log cabin out in nature. Very peaceful and really lovely. On the down side,... More

The Captain Whidbey Inn is lovely and the location unbeatable. The water views, the deer greeting you in the morning, the grounds and gardens are like a historic estate... All peaceful and pristine. It felt as though they weren't quite ready for high-season, though. The hot tubs were closed for maintenance, the gardens in need of grooming and weeding, the... More

Do not stay here if you want a good nights sleep. My friend and I stayed for one night and got almost no rest....the bed was the worst I'd ever slept on....it felt like trying to sleep on doorknobs! The room was old and the bedding was shabby. There was no tv and the room had a weird smell. We... More

My companion and I paid $176 per night for a shabby double room with threadbare sheets and dingy towels. Non-working wifi in room. A cheap, poor quality breakfast, with unripe and overripe fruit, and no warm food, even though they have a kitchen on site. Coffee pot in room didn't work. Hair in shower. Poor upkeep and maintenance in room.... More

I would highly recommend Captain Whidbey's Inn to anyone, whether you live here in the Pacific Northwest or if you're from out of state. The staff is wonderful, the grounds beautiful and the food in the dining room is superb! It is so nice and quiet that you will think you're much futher away from Seattle than you really are.... More
