I stayed at the Harbor Inn for one night in May 2016. The room was clean and tidy if not completely updated. The bed, furniture, towels seemed quite new, but, for example, the curtains were old-school motel style. They still seemed clean, mind you, just kind of a shabby style. There was a kitchenette in the room, but I did... More

We live in Freeland, but have had to stay in a hotel a few times while work was done on our home. The owners and staff have bent over backwards to help us with what we needed on each visit. Yes, the place does not look like 2016, but it's clean and comfortable. They provide a continental breakfast in the... More

We were looking to get away for a little work/play weekend and booked this hotel. The room was spacious and the staff extremely accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and appreciate the lovely landscaping of the facility. It's very quaint and great for the night. The beds were comfortable and staff friendly. Thanks!

Thank you for your kind words. We work hard to maintain our "vintage" property and I'm especially proud of our staff! Please come back this summer and enjoy our soon to be installed air conditioning. More

Smaller older but well-maintained Motel. It is situated in about the middle of the island so it was perfect for us wanting to go exploring. Check in was quick and staff was friendly. Rooms are large and must have been recently renovated. There is a fridge ,small microwave and coffee pot .Mattress was new and is on the firm side.... More

New furniture, well redone bathrooms, spacious rooms. Even the grounds are well done. Pets allowed in ground floor rooms. Kings or double queens in each room.Unlike many listings, however, there is no breakfast.

Their website says "please tell us if you will have a pet". It doesn't say - " If you don't contact us in advance you may not get a room even if we reserve one for you!" I reserved with them online and was charged a $75 fee. I did not remember to call to let them know I had... More

We wholeheartedly welcome pets at the Harbor Inn; however, because we are a small property -- only 16 rooms total, we need to know about your pet at the time of booking. We only allow pets in six of the ground floor rooms. Regarding our manager's "unwillingness" to refund your pre-payment: You booked and pre-paid the reservation online through a... More

There's nothing fancy about this hotel, but it is perfect for an overnight stay! The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly. The bathrooms had nice showers and good lighting. I definitely recommend this hotel for a comfortable overnight rest!

Lived on Whidbey as a child and was familiar with the property but never stayed here. The rooms were huge, very clean, recently upgraded (I assume) and close to anything you need. Lovely outdoor area with nice flowers and vines lining the front of the hotel and the balcony - it is a wonderful place to stay. Across the street... More

Nice non-chain property in small town of Freeland. Rooms were OK, other guests appeared to be contractors working in the area judging by the trucks in parking lot. Hotel was well kept up but dated, however the price was right and location was great, service was great.

Stayed here a couple of times when visiting Whidbey Island. Conveniently located on South end of island. Sort of pricey, but probably comparable to other lodging on island. The rooms seemed like they were updated in last couple of years. Clean and comfortable. No complaints. Pretty friendly customer service.
