“Nice but more motel than lodge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

All the pictures and descriptions indicate a lodge at the foot of the mountains so I was disappointed when it emerged that this was really more an upclass motel between other stores, restaurants etc.. just off the 101 just none of the pictures show this - you would need to see a streetview from the 101 to understand. The on-site restaurant was breakfast only so I needed to head back out to find somewhere for dinner.
Inside the lodge itself is nice, staff were friendly and rooms were well maintained and very clean.
My main disappointment was that I had paid an above average price for a 'lodge' experience which I didn't get and felt misled.

Thank you for your most recent stay with us. As advertised, we are conveniently located two miles from the heart of downtown Port Angeles. We apologize for any confusion as to the location of our hotel. Most guests take advantage of the convenience of just being a short drive from the downtown area, while still being located just 5 minutes from the national park entrance. At our hotel we strive to transport guests from all over the world to a rustic, elegant lodge experience, with features like our natural wood burning fireplace, and picturesque water features.

I would say that by all accounts, the Olympic Lodge is a very standard hotel - especially when it comes to room decor and hallways. However, I'm giving them four stars because of the extremely friendly staff and the beautiful lobby. I definitely recommend it if traveling to visit Olympic National Park. It's also within easy driving distance of downtown Port Angeles. We probably would have gotten more use out of our patio room if the weather had been nicer so I can imagine that being best in the summer months. All in all, very easy stay.

Room Tip: The patio rooms are facing away from the main drag.

Stayed for 2 nights in May of this year and really liked this hotel.

Big reception area, friendly staff, nice bedroom, large car park, easy walking distance to the town and with a beautiful rock sculpture/water feature outside the front door which really sets the place off.

Would certainly stay again if we are in the area.

We stayed here for one night on our tour of Washington and Oregon and it was one of the best hotels that we stayed in. The room was superb with a king size bed and views of the golf course and mountains. The staff were friendly and helpful, giving advice on where to eat. The public areas were well maintained and it was nice to come back to a roaring fire. We did not eat breakfast here or use hot tub so cannot comment on these. This is a very friendly and comfortable hotel and I would love to stay again.

Very clean and comfortable stop before heading north into Canada. I would stay here longer to see the Olympic Peninsula. Not too far from ferry terminal. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice lobby and common areas.

We stayed 5 nights in Port Angeles and this was the place to stay. I can not tell you how accommodating the staff was and how we looked forward to our breakfast every day. The lodge itself is beautiful and overlooks a nice golf course and the mountains. It was clean and comfortable and quiet. It is central to Olympic National Park and the ferry to Victoria was right down the road. The staff gave good directions and recommendations to restaurants. It was nice to feel like we were coming home each night. Five stars in my book.

Room Tip: They only serve breakfast in the restaurant and do not have a bar.

Stayed at Olympic Lodge for a night passing through to Olympic National Park. Great location for the north part of the park. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean, comfy and quiet. The bed was especially comfortable!! Enjoyed a nice breakfast in the morning before heading to the park.
