“Room was to much for what we got”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stayed in the so called condo at $300 per night. Joke!
The beds were good but that's about the best part of the room.
There were only 3 channels on the TV that worked, No pots or pans to use for cooking, No DVD player, no AC, the doors to every room would not close all the way and the light switches were outside the bedrooms. The restaurant breakfast was great and the village was very close and fun to visit.

First and last for me. There are so many nice places in the San Juan Islands but this is not one of them. The staff seems to be bothered by the presence of guests. I always felt like I was imposing or in somebody's way. On more than one occasion I walked through clouds of cigarette smoke generated by a staff member smoking very near an entrance way. The middle age dock "boy" was very upset, apparently by a late arriving fuel customer, and was overheard loudly swearing his disapproval. The grounds are very dirty, the pool is scattered with debris both in and out of the water, the laundry facility was a mess, they were cleaning kitchen mats on the laundry room porch which caused the employee much frustration when I had to come and go doing laundry. We too had a band playing on their boat. Loud and not appropriate for a public place. The one jewel I did notice was the very attentive young dock boy. He was pleasant, handy, and hard working.

I can continue but will say the positive in my stay is that I am very excited to be leaving!!

Lopez islander is a very unique place to stay. It offers clean facilities with a restaurant on premise. We stayed in a queen room which the bath had been updated. We thought a little pricey for the room, however we did stay over the July 4 holiday. All stay was very friendly.

It took 1 hour to book the room. First, they said that the double queen rooms were available. Then they said, no, it is not. Then they quoted the certain price, when I started booking they changed their mind and gave me a higher price. It was the most painful booking in the world.
One person took my name, then called me back. Then I had to talk to another person, and they asked me for my name again! Are you kidding me? it was like a game: "How Much Patience the customer will Have?" I felt like an idiot. Their excuse was that they are too busy.
I hope the stay will be better. I will update my review after we stay in this "busy" place....

Clean, comfortable room with balcony and water view. Room includes large fridge and microwave for self-caterers. Large bathroom with excellent shower pressure and endless hot water. Pleasant, professional management. Excellent restaurant--also with water views--with good nightly deals (e.g., a twenty-dollar, four-course, prime rib dinner). Lopez is wonderful and so is this hotel...

Dozens of us descended on these folks for a big overnight birthday party, they took excellent care of us start to finish. Fun band, comfortable rooms, great service and a view to die for. We can't wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: The suites are 3 bedroom very comfortable and private.

We had a pretty bad stay at the Islander. We had been marina guests before and loved it, and thought we'd stay with our family in the hotel this summer as our plan was to be on the island without our boat. I tried to reserve a pet-friendly room, followed up with an email confirming so, and never got a reply (see message below). When I persisted and called on the phone, I was quoted $100 for additional cleaning, which I agreed to pay. I could have switched to a less expensive pet-friendly queen room, but felt certain that the kitchenette would be important for us and so decided to pay the extra fee.

When we got to the Islander, here's what we found:
1) a room with dirty plates in the drawer, a dirty toilet (hair and debris on the seat), and crumbs on the bathroom counter
2) a microwave and mini-fridge, but no actual kitchenette items - no bowls, plates, spoons, etc. There was only a can opener in the drawer (except for the dirty plates and crumbs.)

I called the front desk and requested to have housekeeping come back to our room. Instead, the front desk person came to our room to collect the dirty plates, which I suppose the last tenant borrowed from the restaurant.

It's frustrating to have to pay additional cleaning fees for a room that wasn't clean in the first place. Also, with two small children, it would have been nice to be able to serve them meals from the room rather than having to constantly be in a restaurant.

I emailed the owners and got a reply that said, "I'll check into this. What was your room number?" I wrote back with my room number. That was three weeks ago and I've heard nothing.

Terrible service. I won't go back.

Room Tip: Everything on the second floor has a water view, so no going wrong there.
