Me and my sweetheart were excited for a nice getaway on the Peninsula. I had stayed at the Resort at Port Ludlow six years ago for a family members wedding and let's just say NOTHING has changed since then, judging by the decor and wear and tear (very uncomfortable beds) on the furnishings. Thinking that I scored a deal by booking one of there online specials for a two night stay, we were looking forward to our stay. BE WARNED when booking online they charge an addition "RESORT FEE" of $10 a day that you don't learn about until it's time to check out and when I presented a copy of my online confirmation and pricing (including taxes) the front desk clerks response was along the lines of "yeah, they really should tell people that we charge the additional resort fee". So if you make your reservation online, just know there is going to be an additional $10 a day fee (plus tax)...for what, I'm not really sure.
Also, another warning regarding the rooms (we should know, we stayed in two different rooms, one just as equally bad as the previous). The beds (both rooms had king beds) were very uncomfortable unless you enjoy the feeling of a very THIN layer of padding between you and the bed springs. The carpet is very abrasive and reminds me of the carpeting in a high school library/classroom. The bathroom fixtures and decor VERY dated (early 90s) and tile floor not heated - so I highly recommend bringing slippers (none provided) or keep you socks/shoes on for any trips to the rest room (as well as for comfort walking on the carpet). Also, both rooms we stayed in had fireplaces with heat tempered glass screwed into the front thus allowing no - or very little - heat out to warm the room. Apparently they are only there for decoration. Also be warned that if you are given a room in the section of the resort near the pond you will hve the joy of listening to the unnaturally loud pumps sucking and pumping water into the pond continuously 24 hours a day.
