The location is lovely. We had two rooms just steps from the water with really beautiful views of the harbor. There is a pier with seating to enjoy the view. The rooms themselves are adequate and a bit cluttered. The parking was difficult and annoying down a very very steep driveway that was tricky to back out (or in) to.... More

Loved the location of this place right on the water. Amazing view from our room and just steps from the huge deck. The room was very quaint and clean with a fireplace. I will definitely stay here again. The caretakers were great and very helpful on information about the area. Thanks!

We had the pleasure of staying in the Lookout at the Waterfront Inn. If that's the "partial view" I can't wait to go back and stay in a waterfront room because it was just beautiful. Karen was so kind, helpful, and cheery. From the second you walk in to your room you feel at home. Great restaurants within walking distance.... More

My fiancé and I took a trip to Gig Harbor and booked two nights at the Waterfront Inn because of the positive reviews and the location. From the start, we fell in love with the place. Our door opened right onto the water! Amazing view. The location is close to everything downtown and the suggestions for food from Karen were... More

We just spent three nights at this delightful Inn, remodeled from an old house, to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The new owners have updated the rooms and the one we stayed in was very pleasantly decorated and quite comfortable. We were in the Lookout Room on the street level (the other three rooms are down a steep hill) and at... More

Disappointed. We were in the "Boathouse" room, one of the 3 recommended waterfront rooms. These 3 rooms were built into a "walkout or daylight" basement. They were pretty much the same and the room sizes were fine. We did not like the fact that the only opening to the outside was a glassed french door (no screen). It did have... More

Stay at a chain hotel for $150 or spend a little more for this quaint, comfortable and convenient inn?! Choose the later. Well worth it! Loved the quiet room looking out on the harbor. Extra large bathroom. Coffee in the common room to take out on their expansive dock. I enjoyed the sunrise on the dock as my husband and... More

I can't possibly say enough wonderful words to describe the Waterfront Inn!! My family rented all but two rooms for my niece's wedding. Stunning views of the harbor!! Beautiful clean rooms. Walking distance to great restaurants. Hoping to rent all rooms for a family holiday in the future!!! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay!!!

We have stayed there twice and will be frequent guests in the future. The view of the harbor is incredible, the owners polite and accommodating, and the location can't be beat. You will be within walking distance of fine restaurants, art galleries, and many beautiful boats and yachts.
