“Unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I felt like I was taking a gamble - seeing the low price - but it was amazing! Although we had to take our luggage up the stairs, the room was quite a surprise. They have all new top quality furniture, large flat screen tv, and granite countertops and modern fixtures. The whole building seemed elegant. Breakfast is the true definition of continental - no sitting area and only pastry and juice. But for the money, who's complaining!

Excellent location, very clean. Helpful owner offers discounts for telephone bookings in off season. He stored our bikes in laundry room overnight. Great beds. You need to get your own coffee and breakfast from the Lobby.

This remodeled hotel is great, we actually had 1/2 of a duplex house as our room. It had everything and would be a fabulous place for a family to stay. The owner takes great care of his facility.

You can smoke outside but be careful to not place your exhausted pack or butts of cigarettes in the ash trays.

Our family of 5 (Teens x 3) decided only 3 days before on a Whidbey Island vacation trip and so we relied on Tripadvisor for guidance. The Acorn Motor Inn had outstanding & positive reviews and we were not disappointed. The rooms were newly renovated, clean, quite & comfortable. Gary, the owner and his team were truly hospitable and accomodating. A great place to crash each night (we were there 3 nites) after each day of exploring the island. The Inn's central location was fantastic, close to restaurats and grocery stores. The whole family loved it! Would stay again and recommend to others!

I chose this motel based upon other TripAdvisor recommendations and even then, it really exceeded my expectations. My room was completely remodeled, with a huge flat screen TV, and the decorating was much more upscale than I expected, complete with nice touches you don't expect at this type of property, like real glassware instead of cheap plastic cups. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my 2nd floor room was absolutely quiet, despite its location next to the stairwell and on the road side of the property. Everything was sparkling clean, too. I will definitely stay here next time I come to Whidbey!

The proprietor is right there on site and obviously takes a lot of well-founded pride in his property. Insider tip: He recommended calling the motel directly for better rates.

The perfect location, right across from Safeway, strip malls and many restaurants. Staff is friendly and incredibly helpful. The place is clean, very reasonable and comfortable. We couldn't have been happier! We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this place if you're in town!
