We stayed here for 5 nights as a 5 year anniversary trip. East Sound is a picture perfect place with lots of yummy food within walking distance. The best part of our trip was our beautiful room at the Outlook! Absolutely get the bay view suite if you are traveling as a couple! It was worth every penny. The view... More

The Outlook Inn was located perfectly to everything. The New Leaf café is the best place to eat and is located right at the Inn. Free parking was a plus. Staff were very friendly. Just outside of the Inn you could sit in Adirondack chairs facing the water with spectacular views. We were not disappointed at all.

My husband and I just got back from a one night stay at the Outlook Inn. We absolutely loved the Outlook Inn. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a bayview suite. The view from our balcony was gorgeous. The room even had a fireplace you could operate with a switch. The staff were very helpful and friendly with recs on... More

We stayed in a bay view suite (king bed) which was perfect for us. The room is a nice size with a beautiful view even when laying in bed. The bathroom is a nice size with a warming towel rack, nice size shower and jacuzzi tub. It had a small kitchenette. The only downside to this room was you could... More

In Eastsound on Orcas Island, this IS the only accommodations available and some of the staff act as if you can take it or leave it. Attitude is key here and staff needs to be re-educated not to let their true feelings interfere with customer service. Our room was booked late and the only one available was in the historic...

The web site is wonderful. My actual experience was just OK. The hotel has a seven day cancellation policy. It wasn't possible to get a Ferry reservation until two days before. I ended up with a 7:25 AM ferry reservation which meant getting up at 2:30 AM. Not the best way to start a relaxing vacation. I called the hotel... More

This place is perfectly located for walking to meals and shops. It's super simple to get around, and the staff are very helpful in making suggestions. The largest room they have for families is lovely, with amazing views, but there is no privacy. It's called a suite, but it's just one large hotel room, so grown-ups and kids need to... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a bay view suite. Fabulous view. Even though you are on a main road into town there is very little road noise, especially during sleeping hours. Hotel very convenient to shops and restaurants. The furnishings are very comfortable including a sofa and 2 chairs in the sitting area. Nice little balcony with 2 lawn... More

I booked one of the low-priced rooms on the upper floor of the main building for 5 days while I kayaked with "Body Boat and Blade" in eary June. The room had a nice bay window that I left open most of the time for fresh air and natural air-conditioning. I was not worried about leaving it open because it... More

I am not sure if it was the beautiful view, weather, or everything combined with a great room but every minute was enjoyed? I had booked a junior suite for my wife and myself. The Outlook Inn sends out emails ahead of time reminding customers to purchase ferry tickets in advance. Luckily I had already figured out where to go... More
