We went to Oak Harbor to attend a wedding, but didn't get a room reserved early enough to have our choice of hotels. We were able to secure a room at the Auld Holland Inn.
The room was sporting brand new carpeting, white bedspreads on soft comfy beds, but the "antique" furniture was in very poor condition, wait.... No, it was literally falling apart. Clean, but repairs to the bathroom were very poorly done. Flat panel tv was good, WIFI was good and easy to hook up to. The "Light" continental breakfast consisted of danish breakfast rolls that had been cut into 2" squares, raisin bran, hard boiled eggs, juice and coffee. The price was commensurate with the room.
This used to be a great place to stay, but it needs a bit more help. In spite of what other guests said about it being noisy, we found it to be just the opposite, although since the weather was warm, we had the AC on while we were in the room and all night. We were on the first floor, and even though the hotel was filled, we never heard neighbors, or anyone above us on the second floor. All in all, it was "do-able" for a summer holiday on short notice in a very popular area. Plenty of restaurants in the area as well. We had breakfast at Applebee's, and it was delicious! Whidbey Island has a tremendous amount of history, and tons of things to do! Check out Fort Casey and the Admiralty head lighthouse.
