This is a very outdated and shabby motel. Our room was missing one of the lights above the bed, so they put a lamp on the night table that blocked access to a closet space. The decor is shabby seventies. The king bed was decent with clean linens that smelled of bleach, but the pillows were rock hard. Our bathroom... More

Good for a one night layover before the ferry ride to the San Juans. Bed was comfortable, parking adequate, accepted dogs. About what we expected for the buck in Anacortes. Would return for another night.

It was difficult to find a spot for one night at Anacortes. This was available so we stayed here. It wouldn't have been my first choice as it was quite dated. The TV was old and the coffee maker was old. The staff was very nice and helpful and the breakfast was adequate.

We stayed two nights in one of the king rooms. The rooms are clean, but a bit rundown. There was a broken light bulb in the fan light, the lighting over the sink is very dim, with the cover broken in a few places. Be careful in the shower if anyone flushes the toilet as it will burn you. Breakfast... More

We stayed here just to sleep one night before an early morning ferry for the San Juans. It was clean and fine. Basic. We left too early to sample the "breakfast" that is available. There is nothing to praise or to complain about. Works to sleep and leave early.

We stayed here for 3 nights last week. The good news is the staff was very pleasant, there was a view from the balcony, the room was clean, and the price was very reasonable for Anacortes. Other than that, we were very disappointed in the fact that there was no elevator--just a set of rickety stairs to drag luggage to... More
