My husband and I really enjoyed our two night stay at The Marina Inn. Our room was a good size and very clean. The bath room was tiny, however, They had someone at the front desk 24 hours a day. The staff was also very friendly and helpful if you had any questions about restaurants and the area. My husband... More

We stayed here so we could catch an early ferry the next day. It is clean, efficient and easy to access (on 20, which is on the way to the Ferry Terminal). The staff was sweet & helpful and the morning breakfast made everyone in our me family happy. Great job!

My wife, two children and I stayed one night at the Marina Inn before our early ferry left for Sidney, BC. The service was very good and the room clean. They had warm afternoon cookies and a nice self serve breakfast. Easy 10 minute drive to the ferry terminal. I would stay here again.

Great from desk staff & breakfast room staff! Though simply passing thru on our way to the islands, GREAT. Comfortable and clean rooms. Checked in the evening of Friday, July 16, had dinner at brewery then left following morning. Would have stayed for the weekend festival (Anacortes) had we known prior. Had to catch a ferry.

hotel was basic but nice, they opened up the breakfast area early to let the early risers catch the ferry in time. Staff was nice and friendly and helped with both ferry information and dinner suggestions.

My husband and I stayed at The Marina Inn in Anacortes, Washington, for two nights in July, during a sectional bridge tournament. Because The Marina Inn is quite inflexible as to check-ins (no early check-in, no late check-out), many bridge players staying there were not able to check in before the 1 PM game on Friday, resulting in a line...

We stayed here in June. The hotel was okay. We chose it because of the price and the location to the ferry. When I went to check out I gave my key to the attendant and she asked for a second key. I explained that our first set of keys didn't work, so we returned them and got one key... More

I don't like to respond to reviews like this but I feel I need to set the record straight because this guest is accusing the hotel of intentionally charging people's credit cards indiscriminately. This is false. This was a simple communication error about charging for a missing key (which all guests are informed at checkin there will be if we... More

Stayed here last week with my son. For $113.00 I could handle the basic accommodations. Right off the main drag but not too many eating options in the area but Anacortes has a population of only 18,000 so it isn't too far from the downtown. No elevator to the 2nd floor - not a big deal for me but it... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. No elevator is an inconvenience for some so we post it on our website, and explain it to everyone who calls to make a reservation and at check in.
