“Great views and access to Rosario & Moran S.P.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Nice rooms with great view of Rosario and access to resort amenities. Large bathrooms that have been recently and tastefully remodeled. Walls between rooms are a little "thin" so request an end room if possible. Parking is right outside your so very convenient for families with kids or for moving lots of stuff (we had bikes with us so it was nice to bring them into the room). Nice "back trail" from units up to Cascade Lake. It's very steep though so be prepared.

Room Tip: Bldg 2000 has great views....

We were very happy at Orca suites as the location is well situated to places of interest including the marina where our Whale watching boat trip began; Moran house was nice and dinner there was excellent; room was fine, and the balcony and associated views was peaceful and nice

Stayed 2 days on Orcas Island. Lodging is limited and books up quickly. Rosario is one of the largest on the island, only 15 minutes south of East Sound (main town). We were lucky to get 2 nights in the same room (Front Desk person went out of her way to allow us to stay in the same room. They are in the midst of upgrading the Harbor View Units they acquired several years ago. The bedding and furniture was brand new, but the rest of the unit needs to be upgraded. The history behind the Main Lodge was fascinating. We ate dinner there one night. It was just OK. The indoor swimming pool was under re-construction, but they have two other outdoor (we decided that it was too chilly). The view from the deck was absolutely fabulous.

Room Tip: Prices more than double on weekends.

My husband and I recently stayed at Orcas Suites at Rosario. Our stay was very pleasant! The room was clean, looked nice, and the view from our balcony was breathtaking...I loved the property...It was beautiful and relaxing...We took morning walks and hiked around the lake. There was also 2 restaurants and the Mansion Museum within walking distance. This is definitely a place that I would return to! Thanks also to the staff for being very friendly and helpful.

Our stay was great! You can walk to the little grill for dinner outside by the water, the pool, the outside fire pit. I took my grandson and nephew, 4 and 7 years old. We had a hotel room with 2 queen beds, a balcony with a water view, and small refridgerator. We had a great time! You can see all colors of beautiful star fish from above the water and the kids can run free and meet other kids at the pool or evening after dinner. You can hike in Moran State park, beautiful view at the top at Mt. Constitution. The little town of Eastsound has great restaurants and shops.

Orcas Island is a beautiful place, and this place takes advantage of it. Rooms are spacious, views are great, and the owners are incredibly helpful and friendly. Only downside is you can feel kind of trapped in Rosario if you don't have a vehicle.

I spent 5 nights at Orcas Suites and there are major things that they should have prepared me for ahead of time and did not. First the pros: the room was spacious, the view of the bay(?) was lovely, and the bathroom was gigantic and fully equipped with a great shower and jacuzzi. Now the cons: Orcas Suites was really much more of a motel than a hotel -- there was no room service at all (no access to food except by walking down a steep hill to other parts of the Rosario Resort), just a daily cleaning service that was not very meticulous (a bathtub ring stayed there for two days; a previous guest's underwear was left on the floor hidden by the bed skirt). The absolutely unforgiveable omission was that there was NO WiFi available (it was spotty enough to be non-existent), no cell phone service and NO long-distance landline telephone service!!! I had no way of calling home to let anyone know I'd arrived safely until I drove into the neighboring town the following day. That needs to be front and center IN BOLD on all descriptions about this hotel/motel so people can be prepared to rough it! Oh, and did I mention that the locks on the room and outside door were broken? Even though there has been no crime to speak of on the island, hotel rooms should still have working locks. The island visit was wonderful but I feel the hotel experience was subpar.
