The hotel is located right off of the ferry and is very convenient to travel. It is beautiful and the view over the bay is stunning. Plenty of seating inside and outside. Good food in the café and restaurant. We had two rooms and both were clean and comfortable. The island is expensive overall and I felt the pricing for... More

A wonderful little hotel right across from the ferry landing on Orcas Island. The rooms were comfortable, maintaining the old vibe without the kitsch one so often finds. The best part was the staff. They were consistently wonderful

Came with a large group and accomations were quaint but hotel definitely needs updating and a good cleaning. Carpets were very dirty and need to be replaced. Staff was friendly enough, we spent quite a bit of money in their cafe and resturant but they were told we couldn't use their outdoor tables for our own snacks, "because that is... More

Great location - it was a hop, skip and jump from the ferry to the hotel. The hotel sits atop a hill at the ferry landing and the view is fabulous. It has a nice wrap around porch where you can sit and eat at the restaurant. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who showed us to... More

Our room was quaint and clean enough but overpriced at 220$ a night. I've stayed in lots of historical hotels, my husband always picks them automatically, but this hotel seemed worn and tired. Breakfast was not included, there were no tourist brochures or information and no in room coffee or tea available. Downstairs was like a bus station, with ferry... More

We booked a room for a very reasonable $100 per night on Orcas Island, and were more or less pleased with it. The value is the main reason I gave 4/5. The hotel itself is very pretty, and within easy walking distance from the ferry terminal. There is a grocery store and a restaurant nearby as well, in the village... More

Nice room overlooking the water but with only toilet & lav in bathroom. Have to go down hallway to shower. Only amenities is a very slow wifi. No complimentary coffee but it is available for additional charge in cafe. Room, cafe , and restaurant seem overpriced. Choose your room carefully. This is the northwest and no air conditioning. Rooms with... More

Quite expensive for really NOT great food. The fish and chips: fish not cooked. Run out of French fries. The sweet potatoes fries were soft. My wife got a burger, the buns were not grilled. That was the week end before the 4th of July and it was quite busy. But the service was great I have to say. I... More

Stayed here in 2011 for a friend's wedding. Highly recommend for a wedding or event (from a guest's point of view). Beautiful grounds, charming accommodation, nice little restaurant to hang out in. The views and area around the hotel are just gorgeous. Convenient for ferry and whale watch.

I would give this hotel 5 stars if it had a kitchenette of some sort, although the staff was prompt to help us with storing some of our things in their fridge, it is very hard to travel with a toddler and not having a place to do basic cooking and cold storage. Besides that, we had a great time,... More
