The hotel was very clean, quiet and low-key. They sent us an email with a front door code and a room code and we just let ourselves in in, which worked out really well for us since we arrived late. Our room (suite 1) was very, very nice. Both beds were very comfortable, there was no street noise and the sitting area was great. Even the coffee was very good. We didn't use the shared kitchenette space, but it looked like it was pretty well set up. Marylou was very friendly and responsive to questions.

Small 4-unit hotel, a 2nd floor walkup on a downtown business building. Clean, quiet, modern, nicely spacious. Perfect downtown location. Very gracious host. Good-sized shower, but no bathtub in ours.Good wifi. We loved it. Well worth the money. One of the highlights of the trip.

On short notice we needed to find a hotel in Port Townsend for a sunny October weekend getaway. After trying several others, we found this one had a room available. It was an unusual but great surprise! It has only four rooms, with no front desk, on the second floor of an older building in downtown Port Townsend with a book shop and a CPA firm on the first floor. We entered the hotel's doorway on the street via a provided keypad code, went up a flight of stairs, and entered our room (Suite 1) with a separate keypad code. The building is old but the room was new, with all the normal features, including a very comfortable queen size bed with high quality sheets. There was an attached second bedroom which was locked off since we only needed one bed (and the one bedroom rate). Very good phone and email service by Marilou! We'll try it again on our next visit.

Jim, I enjoy reading such wonderful comments concerning the hotel. It rewards us to know that we do a good job in supplying a convenient comfortable place to stay in Port Townsend. Your comment "Very good phone and email service by Marilou" makes a previous review less of a heartache. I have my phone on 24/7 wherever I am, not letting go of that personal service to guests. When traveling and staying with me, ask me about a special rate on a 2-night stay for you! Respectfully, Marilous

My husband and I stayed in Suite 1 with a friend of mine who drove up to meet us for the Wooden Boat Festival. Suite 1 has 1 bedroom with the other bed in the main room. There is a sitting area with 3 chairs. We were comfortable enough to be in the room and play games the evening it rained. Everything was clean. Marilou was easy to work with. She let my friend come early to surprise me for my birthday. The bathroom is large and clean. Only additional item that might be good would be an additional bench in the bathroom to lay clothes on while showering. Parking is a little tight but workable, although not really for large vehicles. Hotel is centrally located to downtown Port Townsend in easy walking distance to the Wooden Boat Festival and the craft fair as well as to shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again.

Hello I love assisting people with surprises for guests staying at the hotel! Your friend was so sweet to talk to about your birthday and surprising you. Suite #1 is quite comfortable having two queen beds, one actually in a separate room to give more privacy. Yes, I agree that having a bench in the bathroom would certainly make it easier while getting ready. On my list! Parking can be tight with larger vehicles, I do wish it was a larger area. 24-hour parking is just a block away for larger vehicles. Thank you for taking the time for posting a review, I truly appreciate them! Do ask about a discount on your next 2-day stay! Sincerely, Marilou

My husband and I stayed at The Washington Hotel in Suite 4, which has 2 bedrooms, full bath and a sitting room with a sleeper sofa. The suite was excellent! Very clean, charming decor, thoughtful amenities, and a fantastic location in the center of town. Our room had a refrigerator, coffee maker, wine glasses & opener. In the common hallway is a kitchenette for your use. The room was not air conditioned, it is the Northwest. However, fans were in each room for added comfort. The hotel has only 4 rooms and is very quiet. This boutique hotel is not staffed on the property, but the manager lives in town if you need any service. You enter the building and your room with a private key code which was very convenient - no keys to carry. This hotel is now one of our favorite places to stay in Port Townsend. We plan to return for another stay and highly recommend it. THANK YOU Marilou for a wonderful stay!!!
