We just came back from a 2-night stay in Anacortes. We chose The Marina Inn based on reviews in Booking.com and Tripadvisor. We're sure glad we did. The hotel was great. Clean inside and outside. Check-in was quick and pleasant. We stayed in a king with a jettub bath on a second floor. The room seemed to be recently remodeled.... More

You are right - the rooms were totally remodeled a few years back and just last year we modified our bed linen look and incorporate the amazing soaps and shampoos of Gilchrist and Soames. Not only are they a fantastic product but so much better for the environment in the larger containers rather than the small throw away kind. Our... More

My husband and I decided to go to Anacortes for our honeymoon to go ziplining, sea kayaking, and see killer whales! We booked a hotel in MT.Vernon since it said there was a Walmart so we could pick up things we needed for the trip. THE HOTEL WAS AWFUL!!!! Once we got to Anacortes the next morning we started searching... More

Congratulations on your marriage and we are delighted you selected The Marina Inn after your bad experience in Mt. Vernon. Anacortes is a lovely town (I moved from Seattle to be here) and the beauty found here is amazing. It's a wonderful base point for visiting the other San Juan Islands as well as many other points of interest. I... More

We dropped in with out a reservation. The rooms are inside so you have to pass the desk and walk down a hall. We like that for security. The breakfast was very nice, pleasant and enough. We were directed across the street for pizza and beer. Easy to cross the street. The room was very clean, shower was nice and... More

We also think we are the complete package. We are noted for our clean rooms and great customer service. We have a great staff here eager to help with whatever you need. We're also thrilled with our new exercise room and guest computer room. I'm not sure if you had the opportunity to utilize either one of those but, if... More

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Marina Inn. And thank you so much for writing a review. Even though we're about a mile or so from historic downtown Anacortes, one of the nice things about being at our end of town is you don't deal with the noise from the late night restaurants and taverns that...

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Marina Inn. Our rooms were totally renovated a few years back. Everything was taken out except the bathtubs and the toilets so everything has a newer, crisp look to it. Just last year we switched over to the Gilchrist and Soames hair and bath products which our guests have been delighted... More

The Marina Inn is one of the better places I have stayed, in its price range - possibly the best. It is clean, comfortable, and convenient. There is a microwave, frig and food prep sink in the room. The bathroom sink is outside the toilet/shower room, which I prefer when there are two people in the same room. (I don't... More

Our recent one night stay was good, the room was on the main floor, clean and quiet. We would stay here again as it was convenient to the ferry and good value. The staff was attentive and helpful. Reserving over the phone was very positive as the person asked about our room preference and suggested one that met my needs.
