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

I discovered this Inn through an online voucher and thought it the perfect place to unplug, but it had WiFi! Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It was perfectly charming and as expected from the description and photos on the Inn's website. Tiny uneven stairs you had to haul your suitcase up, floors that creaked as you walked on them,...

Purchased voucher for 2 nights from LivingSocial.com. Prior to purchasing I called the Inn several times to ask if there was wifi in the rooms. I learned they had no tv sets so I took my ipad. I was assured that there was wifi in the rooms and I didn't have to hang out of the window to get it.... More

Come here with some good books and comfortable walking shoes. If you need a t.v., you're in the wrong place. The views are great, the staff is super friendly, the grounds are attractive, and the restaurant is excellent. I recommend the Lagoon rooms which are spacious with terrific views. Be sure to check out the raised bed kitchen gardens--all 22... More

First time visiting the inn trying out Amazon Local and it was a great experience. We stayed in a lagoon room and found it clean quiet and comfortable with a wonderful view. The real highlight is the original lodge. We had dinner at the tavern both nights and thought the food was very good.

It has been 30 years between our visits to Capt. Whidbey Inn. The place is almost exactly the same as back in the day. The property is situated on acreage that includes a beautiful piece of water front overlooking Penn Cove. The inn itself is over 100 years old, built of native logs and is full of antiques.
