As we neared the ferry port on Orcas Island, we could see the Orcas Hotel welcoming us! It was a short walk and we were right on the front porch walking inside. Some rooms do not have showers or bathrooms in them, but I did my homework ahead of time and we reserved a room that not only had its... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the historic and beautiful Orcas Hotel. It was well maintained both inside and outside. It's right up the hill from the ferry terminal. We enjoyed watching the ferry's come in through out the day, Breakfast was good in the cafe and our rib dinners were delicious from the formal restaurant. Both nights... More

The historic appearance has been maintained outside and inside with modern amenities making is very comfortable. As soon as you get off the ferry the hotel appears just up the hill. The view is great. There is outside seating, covered and uncovered, ground level and upstairs. There is a café that serves a good breakfast and lunch that can be... More

Built a long time ago but updated and kept immaculately clean. Great breakfast. No elevator. Nice helpful staff. Right across the street from the ferry terminal. You can sit in the 1890s style porch and watch them come and go. A good stop the night before your early AM ferry back to the mainland.

Brought our 11 year old granddaughter with us on our first trip to Orcas. Couldn't ask for a better location. Hotel overlooked the ferry terminal. Our room had a queen bed and a day bed for her. Our third floor room included a shower. This hotel was built in 1904 yet it was very adequate. The breakfasts were delicious and... More

Used Orcas Hotel for recent wedding where we had two rooms. Rooms were very clean but were more of the bed and breakfast variety - only one of the rooms had a toilet and both rooms had showers down the hall. Also, only one of the rooms had a flat screen. Wonderful view and great food. The salmon was unbelievable... More

This is just a charming old hotel. If you are looking for five star renovation, this is probably not for you. It's got some imperfections, but it adds to its charm. It's clean, beds are comfy, staff is nice. And the view is gorgeous!!! We stayed in the Blue Herron room. Overlooked the ferry dock. We had a great time... More

My husband and I and another couple stayed at this hotel through a discounted rate purchase for 2 nights' stay, two dinner entrees and daily breakfast. We were more than pleased with our accommodation - our rooms had a shared deck, views of the harbour and front gardens, and huge jacuzzi bathtubs (but no showers). As we're all 'shower people'...

We stayed there two nights, had a good dinner with Washington State wine each night. The staff were very hospitable and the place is in good shape and modern enough while retaining the character of the architecture. The location is right across from the ferry and the grocery store, both very unobtrusive---in fact watching the ferry arrive was fun. We... More

Our first time in the San Juan Islands, this was a very nice place to celebrate a birthday. The room, while comfortable, is small, so only one person can sit on a chair if you're not out exploring the island, etc. It's over 100 years old, so expect to hear some floor creaking from your neighbors. We stayed 2 nights... More
