5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Found this by accident while travelling from to Anacortes to catch ferry to Victoria. Stayed only 1 night but found it to be wonderful. Was a nice break after Seattle, Victoria & Vancouver. Quiet little village feel. Room was not greatly appointed but didn't need to be. Was located on a channel with window & small balcony. Had a fireplace. We thoroughly enjoyed the break. Cute little stores nearby. Just park & walk to great food & shopping.

We stayed at this lodge for one night. We liked the beamed ceilings, weathered cedar look and the homey lobby with piano and library.We enjoyed a complimentary cookie and cup of hot chocolate in the lobby - a nice touch The weather had turned from summer to fall that day and we loved sitting with the fire on in our room, looking out over the water. The room was very clean and smelled fresh. The breakfast was a cut above the usual self serve continental breakfast with fresh, baked goods, fresh fruit, cheese, as well as the usual cereals, toast and bagels. La Connor is laid back, and a quaint, touristy town with pricey gift and art shops, cafes and wine shops.

My wife and I stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable, clean, and very nicely decorated, although not over-large. The room overlooked the channel, and had opening windows to pick up a nice breeze which kept the temperature just right for sleeping. French door to a patio (more aptly described as a mini-patio) which was lovely to sit out on to watch the boats go by. The continental breakfast had a fair assortment of pastries, cereals etc, orange juice and hot regular/decaf coffees, so was thoroughly enjoyed. The afternoon cookies provided in the lobby were delicious, but on both days the coffee was barely luke warm and only packaged non-dairy creamers were provided. The front desk attendant simply suggested that I take the coffees upstairs to the microwave to heat them up. Not really what I would have expected...but maybe the hotel could consider putting coffee makers in the rooms instead. Overall this was a minor blip in what was otherwise a wonderful stay. Great location convenient to everything in La Conner. We were there celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary as a treat from our children. As a sideline note, they had also wanted to treat us to an anniversary dinner at the hotel's restaurant "Nell Thorn" which is actually attached to their sister property a couple of blocks away. Unfortunately, as my wife is disabled, we did not do this as we found the accessibilty of the this restaurant far too arkward for anyone in a wheelchair or using a mobility device. The hotel itself is fine however, and presents no problems for the mobility impaired...in fact they even offered to store the mobility scooter overnight in the laundry room so it could be plugged in for re-charging.
Very very close to getting 5 stars, but not quite!

Stayed 2 nights as part of a longer trip, in order to go on a whale watching trip from Anancortes. Superb location on the channel and within easy walking distance of facilities in the town. Homely public areas and generously-sized and comfortable room with balcony, gas fire and views of the channel. The included breakfast was much better than I expected. Service was pleasant and helpful. The only slight issue was that the free wifi only just reached my room (112 - at the far end of the building, which is probably why) and was usable only in the lobby just inside the door.

Room Tip: Avoid 112 if you want to use wifi in the room.

Spent a lovely weekend in this quaint little town in early August. Beautiful weather, wonderful little "walkable" town. The Channel Lodge was lovely. We had a suite on the channel with a great balcony. Great mornng coffe watch the boats go by. This lodge offers a continential breakfast. But we found it to be mich more that just coffee and rolls. Wonderful breakfast, beautiful rooms in a lovely setting

We stayed here for one night, and would gladly return! The lodge is really lovely, with lots of wood touches. Our third floor room was large yet cozy, with a great view of the Swinomish Channel and Fidalgo Island. Fun to watch the boats go down the channel. Everything was clean and very comfortable. Appreciated the warm bathrobes and nice bath products. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast with really delicious granola. The lobby has a wonderful reading area -- it would be a great place to relax during a rainy day. The surrounding gardens area very pretty and really complement the lodge.

My husband and I booked a room here Friday afternoon for a stay that night. No problem getting a room. All rooms have a view of the channel. We had one on the first floor which still had a great view from our private porch. Other nice amenities include gas fireplace, comfy bed, sitting area, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Basic but clean bathroom. Within walking distance to shops/restaurants. Cookies and coffee in the lobby and a nice complimentary breakfast with indoor and outdoor seating. Ask for a AAA discount if you are a member. A little more expensive than their sister hotel, La Conner Country Inn, but worth it.
