“Royal Scot a real delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is the second time that family and I have stayed at the Royal Scot over the Christmas holidays. The rooms are spacious and the hotel supplies you with a tin of cookies as a "house warming". The pool is quite good and the weight room will do. They have a very nice pool and shuffle board room, as well as a "games room". This room is ideal for when the weather isn't the greatest (which is often in December). The room has an electric piano, a TV, a library and several jigsaw puzzles. The staff are very friendly and are always cleaning. The decor is a little dated, but all of the important things are top notch. The staff at the restaurant are also very courteous. Best thing of all is that this hotel is one of the quietest that I've ever been in.

Room Tip: They have some really good 2 bedroom suites, which is ideal for a family with older kids. However...

Brought my mother for the weekend (her holiday gift). The hotel is a bit 'tired'--but clean, orderly and conveniently located. The staff is friendly and professional. Service is top notch. Not the most famous place to stay, nor the most posh. But dollar for dollar, I think you get more value for your money here than other hotels I frequented in the past.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lobby.

I went on a weekend trip from Seattle and would definitely stay here again. Everyone from the shuttle driver, concierge/front desk, and maid service was very friendly and accommodating. Also the activities we wanted to do were in walking distance of the hotel. We came slightly before our original room was ready, but they immediately gave us an alternate room to meet our needs. They also gave us a late check out. My wife and I were both very pleased with our stay here.

We love Royal Scot - We have stayed here a few times over a period of time. Always same great friendly service and very clean. This time we came as "walk-on" passengers taking the Coho ferry from Port Angeles. Hotel is only a short walk from ferry terminal. Another great plus is that they provide courtesy shuttle service. One of the nights it was cold to walk to city so we used their shuttle service.
Had a great breakfast with excellent service by Kelly (I see another review mentioned her as well). Very friendly with recommendations on couple of sites to see. She even wrote down for me name of book to read about the Dunsmuir family. We will definitely stay here again.

This was my first time to take the Port Angeles ferry to Victoria. I chose this hotel based on the price but found after I arrived that even though it was one of the least expensive hotels, it was in great shape and the staff went above and beyond to be friendly and accommodating. It is a hotel that I could easily walk off the ferry with luggage and get to. I highly recommend Royal Scot!

I can't say when I've experience better value. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and convenient to everything. The bonus is an indoor pool and hot tub, both kept very clean. The Royal Scot provides free many things for which higher-priced hotels charge extra: Newspapers delivered to your door, coffee in the lobby, Wi-Fi, early check-in, late check-out, cookies in the room, frig in the room, apples on the front desk, free shuttle van to points around town, plus very personal and friendly service. The hotel has an old-fashioned, boutique feel, with up-to-date decor and service. The price - under $100 a night in winter - is right (but no AC so don't know what things might be like in summer). I'd definitely stay here again.

Our group of 7 had a great breakfast here. The food was tasty, and the service was friendly and efficient. The waitress, Kelly, and her sidekick (sorry, i forgot her name), have been doing the breakfast crowd for years. The prices were reasonable (much better than than at the fancy hotel across the street.)
Cannot comment on the hotel rooms, since we did not stay here.
