“Great rates. Amazing harbor views. We will return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is the second trip I have made to Anacortes and both times I stayed at the Ship Harbor Inn. The views of the harbor are incredible and the hospitality is unparalleled. The rooms are affordable and clean, with great amenities. Dogs are welcome. A nice breakfast with bagels, cereal, and waffles (delicious, by the way!) is included. Make sure the try the coffee bar, also. On top of all this, what I like the most is the fact that the owners truly appreciate our business. My husband and I were so happy with our stay and we WILL be back!

Room Tip: All rooms have priceless views. They are all pretty private, although we stayed in the studio queen...

I stayed here on a whim while on a trip to explore Chuckanut Drive. The staff are great and gave me a lovely room on the second floor so I had a good view of the water, ferry boat, and a few eagles. The room was comfortable and well-kept and the bed was just right. There were plenty of pillows, which I like. Breakfast was ok - self-serve continental, but there were hard boiled eggs so you can get your protein if you need it.

The hotel is a bit out of town, which I liked. It was very quiet and serene, the perfect place for a respite from Seattle.

Thank you for the wonderful review sgirlie. One of my favorite things about Anacortes is that it always seems that there are new places to explore. We look forward to your next visit with us and we will make sure to have your pillows fluffed and ready for you.

We really enjoyed our stay at this Inn, and will definitely comeback as well as highly recommend this place to our friends. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the friendly owner, who provide us with maps, restaurants, sites, and places to go with our two dogs. The room was very clean and provided many amenities; we loved the Jacuzzi tub and fireplace, which looks brand new, the bed was very comfortable, with clean sheets and towels. To our surprise, the room was very quiet, especially since we were so close to the main street & harbor - we could see the ferry coming into the harbor from our room window! The grounds were nicely maintained, which was great for us to walk the dogs late evening and early morning before we head out. We will definitely come back.

Room Tip: Deluxe King fireplace w/ in room tub - harbor view

We are very excited to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us Linzak. One of my favorite features that we offer is every room has a water view. Also our owner is one of the best, who will go above and beyond for all of her guests. We look forward to seeing you again and be sure to visit our new espresso stand and pick up a treat for your pets.

Came to Anacortes for a weekend getaway & had a wonderful stay at the Ship Harbor Inn. Owners & staff were very welcoming, friendly & helpful, providing maps & info to help us enjoy the area. Our queen bed room with a wonderful garden view of the bay was cozy & very comfortable. The continental breakfast, with quality food & beverage, was set up very nicely in a spacious separate building. Facility & grounds are well maintained & owners are doing a cosmetic makeover that is really enhancing the overall appearance of the property. Would highly recommend this inn to anyone coming to Anacortes, WA--Gateway to the San Juan Islands.

We spent a very relaxing night at the Anacortes Ship Harbor Inn. Nestled below the main road, it was clean, quiet and hosted wonderful views of the ferry landing at Anacortes. Their newly remodeled rooms feature a nice gas fireplace, a very comfortable king sized bed and a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. There was a little "old fashioned" kitchenette, that I personally think could have been removed in the remodel, but may come in handy for travelers staying a bit longer than a day or two. In walking distance to the ferry dock and a short drive to scenic Washington Park or even Deception Pass, the location was great.
Enjoy a comfortable stay at the Anacortes Ship Harbor Inn. Breakfast is included. :-')

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the Anacortes Ship Harbor Inn and plan to return. The views were outstanding and the king bed very comfortable plus we were within walking distance of the Anacortes Ferry dock and just a short drive from Washington Park, Point Deception Bridge and downtown Anacortes. It also didn't hurt to have a nice fireplace and jucuzzi to come home to at the end of the day.

Room Tip: We chose the waterview room with the king bed and fireplace and appreciated having a parking spot ri...

Being near the ferry and away from the string of motels and restaurants was a peaceful plus. We had two queen bedded room separated by the bath. The porch overlooking the harbor was great for happy hour. The staff was ever helpful with suggestions for wandering and for dining. We would repeat this anytime.
