“The Marina Inn - a great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2008

We were at the start of a two-week trip down the west coast. Our trip included a stop in the San Juan Islands to go whale watching. We needed an economical, clean place to stay in Anacortes so we could catch an early ferry to the San Juan Islands. We chose the Marina Inn after a bit of web searching and were so glad we did!

The Marina Inn is clean and very convenient. The front desk staff were pleasant and friendly, and provided us with a map and directions. I think breakfast was provided in an area near the lobby, though we did not have time to indulge.

The only negative: the parking is TIGHT. We literally had to pull out of our parking space to open our doors so we could get luggage in and out.

Great place to stay for the price. Highly recommended - would stay there again.

I went to Anacortes for a quick business trip and stayed in a King Jacuzzi room. It was very clean, on the second floor, there is no elevator that I know of, so that was the only drawback with carrying my suitcase and briefcase up the stairs. I liked that the whole place is non smoking. The Inn was very quiet, the people were nice, it is right on the main road when you turn into Anacortes, about 1.5 miles to the tiny "downtown" area where all of the shops and restaurants are. You could easily walk it if you wanted to get some nice exercise. They have a free continental breakfast, but I wanted eggs so I went to the Calico Cupboard and Gere a Deli. Both were great, Gere a Deli a little less expensive and the best looking desserts I have ever seen. Anacortes has a bunch of Starbucks, and a Safeway. My favorite restaurants: the Brown Lantern ( pub style place with excellent choice of beer on tap) and Rockfish Grill. Had a horrible meal at Flounder Bay Cafe.

Clean room, comfortable beds, good value. Totally agree with the earlier good reviews. The staff in the lobby are very friendly and helpful (when asked about places to eat, Rockfish Grill was highly recommended--had a great dinner and the hard cider is delicious; so are the ales--Rockfish is a few minutes drive down the road, very close to the Majestic Inn.)
Stayed one night to catch the ferry early next morning. Complimentary breakfast is adequate and served early enough to not feel rushed if you're catching the first ferry.
Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed overnight before catching the ferry to Sidney, BC. Since we are off season the rate was $78.00 total and included a great WiFi service.

The reception was friendly (including cookies on the counter). The room was clean and fully functional with 2 doubles. The bathroom also clean with all amenities including fluffy white towels. The place has obviously been upgraded.

Quiet place when we were sleeping. Basic continental breakfast included before our departure. What else could we have asked for?

We stayed here one night to take the Victoria ferry the next morning. Hotel is very presentable, clean and updated. The room was very nicely updated as well and very comfortable; it shows the management cares. Complimentary limited breakfast with good choices. Will stay there again (and again...).

We were directed to this hotel by the visitor centre, it was a good choice, the rate was excellent $88 for one night. Room large, two queen beds, very clean. Breakfast was good, buffet style help yourself. Guest laundry which is a blessing when you've been travelling for some time....Would recommend.

Needed a place to stay - looked around and after looking at the room decided to book this one - the room was very nice - great bed, great TV, staff friendly and helpful and coffee GREAT. Breakfast was fine - again nothing to write home about - but filled the void until lunch. We'd stay here again
