we had a very warm welcome at reception which is always a great way to start a vacation. We had a corner room with a beautiful view and the room was excellently appointed and very clean. II see from other reviews that there are shared baths, but we had our own, with a big tub and shower. It is a...

My family and I spent two nights in the main Inn. Our rooms were European style meaning we shared a hall bath with 3 other rooms. We rented both a room with two twins for our teen daughters and a queen view room for ourselves. Rates were very reasonable. Both rooms were charming comfortable and clean. The queen room was...

The name gives away the greatest feature of this fine hotel. The view out the front is spectacular. When I booked the room I was warned that the rooms did not have private bathrooms but used shared common shower and toilet. That turned out to be no problem at all, as there were several of each located nearby in the...

Charming Inn with all the comforts! We stayed in one of the bay view king suites with a view of the water. King size bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was nicely done with a jacuzzi/separate shower, heated towel rack and heated floor. A nice touch. A nice open feel to the room with a sunken living area and fire...

Such a lovely and quaint historic inn with a great location next to the sea and to an array of cute shops and restaurants Orcas Island has to offer. Came here with my family and have to say the room was so comfortable. The atmosphere was light and airy, very clean - felt very comfortable. You walk outside the hotel...

We had a second floor room with a nice view of the water. The room was well decorated, spacious and very comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located near the shops of Eastsound, with ample off-street free parking. Our only negative comments would be some moderate noise, coming both from nearby rooms (normal coming and going, nothing out of the ordinary)...

The Outlook Inn is sort of like the Tale of Two Cities. Fortunately, we stayed in the best of rooms, and I could not have asked for much more. The hotel seems to be split into two sections- an older one with more standard rooms, including some with shared showers, and the newer one with suites that are more recently...

Very beautiful room with outstanding views of East Sound. The King sized bed was particularly comfortable with a thick foam topper. The New Leaf Café was excellent with a great happy hour. I highly recommend this property especially the bay view suites!

Really nice historic inn. Several sections, some like old style motel rooms, some with shared bathroom. We stayed in a luxury bay view suite.

We made a reservation for July 4th but mixed up the dates and arrived only the day after. Not only we weren't charged for the no-show, but we were upgraded to a suite for the price of the lost night. Thank you so much for a great customer service experience. The king suite was specious with breathtaking view. Beautiful.
