It was below my expectations. I booked for the pool and hot tub. The water appeared clean, but the bottom wasn't. The hot tub was almost 8" lacking in water for the skimmer and jets to work!! Whoever paiinted the room was saving on paint and time. Bed was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was less than a continental style.... More

Got stuck in America because of a busted ferry after a long trip backpacking in the Olympics. My wife called around hotels in Anacortes, which were largely full due to some festival happening. In any case, Islands Inn had a couple of rooms left, and were super friendly and nice in helping me find a place to lay my head.... More

We were a little nervous when we drove up. We went into the front office and were greeted by a lovely young lady. She was able to accommodate our large group of 6 in one room. We had a family suite with three queen beds and a pull out couch. The hotel is old and the furnishings are old but... More

Motel on Faldalgo Island north west of Seattle, nice big and quiet room on 1st floor with brilliant view to the harbor. Free Wi-Fi, outside swimming pool. Lots of different restaurants in walking distance. Breakfast, not much choice! You can walk to the harbor as well. Their is a steam boat museum in the harbor area.

This was the 2nd time I have stayed here with a group of Mountaineers. It's a comfortable motel in a good location for walking to downtown Anacortes, and with good eating places nearby. Not fancy, but friendly, clean, and reasonably priced.

Sometimes when we are traveling, we just want a quiet room at a good price. Old school is OK as long as it is clean. The Island Inn is just that kind of place. Pet friendly is also an option. We are sure these rooms are really cozy with a free standing fireplace in the room. We will definitely stay... More

The Island Inn was in a good location in Anacortes with a nice view of the bay and My Baker. Good price and a better than expected free breakfast for us. Quiet and the room was comfortable. Plenty of places within walking distance. Nice staff as well.

We stayed at Islands Inn the night before we took the first ferry out to the San Juan Islands. Our room was rather old but clean. The shower was terrible and there was water leaking out of the tub portion and there was mildew around it. However, the price was right for a VERY basic and clean place to sleep.

Old motel, dated, rooms are smelly!!! I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that this hotel should get a -4 rating, if anything! The breakfast bar is laughable! I was afraid to eat in there! So many good places to eat on the Island, don't waste your time here. it's not worth it, even being included... More
