“Lovely room, beautiful location - but be prepared for noise from neighbors!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I booked a special getaway offered by this Lodge in lovely La Conner called the "Resolution Retreat Weekend" - described as an all-inclusive early January night's stay, which included an appetizer buffet prepared by the Nell Thorn restaurant, a piano player and a wine tasting from local Silver Bell Winery. We had stayed at their other property, the Country Inn, once before - we found it very comfortable, but it doesn't offer the lovely view the Channel Lodge does - and eaten several times at Nell Thorn (in our opinion, one of the better restaurants in Washington State), so we were anticipating a very pleasant stay. Our room was small but comfortable, with a nice lodge-style decor, a gas fireplace and a lovely view, the appetizer buffet was varied, delicious and plentiful, the piano player quite accomplished and the wines exceptional; however, the Lodge was built in 1991, and evidently providing good insulation between rooms and floors wasn't considered a high priority. We could clearly hear our upstairs neighbors chatting to each other, walking around and (unfortunately quite late at night) indulging in conjugal bliss. It wasn't something we felt comfortable complaining about, as it certainly wasn't the fault of the people above us - they weren't purposefully loud - but this situation definitely put a damper on the enjoyment of our stay. We would therefore hesitate to recommend the Lodge, unless you get a room on the top floor (which we were advised are primarily King-Parlour Suites, with a +$50 nightly rate).

Room Tip: Top floor only.

We booked 2 nights at their related Country Inn, because that one is pet friendly and this one usually isn't. But they up-graded us to the Lodge, even though we are travelling with a rather large dog. And it is charming! Nice ambiance, great location, very good breakfast included, friendly staff, usable deck, on the water so the views are beautiful, and it is a very short stroll to the shops. We really like it a LOT. What a cool town! We will be back!

We had a river view room and really liked it. There was a small balcony overlooking the river with 2 chairs which we thought was very nice. The sitting area and fireplace were nice extras. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the downtown shops, restaurants and the Quilt Museum. The breakfast was just ok and the second morning we were there, we didn't even eat there. This hotel definitely has the best views and the rooms are very comfortable and clean.

This place was a great surprise ! The room was more like a nice water view apartment, with so many great extras like a table and chairs near a channel view window, a great fireplace near the bed, super TV, amazing bathroom, kitchen area, and a really cozy welcoming lobby area too. The
Location is perfect for walking around town to restaurants and shopping, and the area is so scenic and relaxing. Our stay was so happy, I would recommend this place completely. Very clean, lots of
Pillows and wonderful spa quality amenities, a memorable stay thanks to great lodging.

Room Tip: Water view.

Be sure and get a top floor room as you don't want to hear the bed spring in the room above you each and every time the guests move during the night. I kid you not, it was one of the worst nights of sleep that I have ever had in a hotel in 25 years. I know it was the bed springs because ours were squeaky as all heck too, but the one above us is connected directly to our ceiling, so it reverberated all throughout our room from 10pm to 6am. The only thing that (barely) saved us was the fan we found in the closet, so that got plugged in to help mask the noise from above. My complaint got us $20 off the bill. It would have been more but supposedly our room rate through Expedia was $70 less than the rack rate already. Otherwise it's a pretty awesome place.

A very nice place to stay. Rooms come with fireplaces, great views of the river. Piano in the lobby is a nice touch. No bar but they sell local wines by the bottle and provide glasses so we were able to enjoy. Excellent breakfast, overall a great place to stay.

The La Conner Channel Lodge was designed with comfort and relaxation in mind. Every room has a patio with a view of the channel, as well as a fireplace. A continental breakfast is included in your stay, and we enjoyed the variety and presentation. Spending a couple nights at the Channel Lodge allows for relaxation, as well as time to enjoy the many interesting shops and restaurants in this small town. There isn't much nightlife, but if you enjoy curling up in one of the armchairs by the fire with a book, or watching the boat traffic during summer months, then the Channel Lodge won't disappoint. They have a sister property with slightly lower room rates (La Conner County Inn), which is equally nice, but without the view of the channel.
