We stayed in a room with a single queen bed in the one story building. We had a porch that was ten feet from the edge of the water. The view was beautiful. We watched the moon rise over the bay. The furnishings were dated, but clean. The room was small. The shower and bathroom were tiny. The included breakfast...

Stayed in the Officer and Gentlemen suite. This is an older room, don't expect high end...but it was super charming. Bed was comfy with a great view for a 1st floor room. The jacuzzi tub is cleaned daily and was perfect on a cold night! Great deck. Good continental breakfast with bagels, muffin, yogurt and fruit. The staff were super...

I stayed here with my wife and infant for a weekend in November. Aside from it smelling like incense when we first walked in, it was really nice and we were happy with our stay. HOWEVER! I left a T-shirt there. Of course it was one of my favorites. They called me to inform me it was forgotten and if...

I wish I had more time to review this wonderful hotel. I came to Port Townsend as a guest teacher at Goddard College. I was to be there only two days, but fell in love with the town and this hotel. I was completing a work project and decided to stay a bit longer. How could I not? The staff...

We came to Port Townsend without a reservation in October and stopped here because it was on the water. Loved it. Stayed in a room in the older part. The off-season rates were very reasonable. Direct water view. The best part was the bathtub (jacuzzi) outside on the decK! A great treat sitting in the outside tub during wind, rain...

The hotel manager was right our of some British comedy, really over the top, painfully earnest and helpful yet would suddenly become mercurial with other staff. Our room, #206, was done in a Rococo style that was absolutely hilarious if you are a devotee of really cheesy decor. We suspected the hotel manager had a role to play in the...

We stayed just one night at Tides Inn, but I wish we could have stayed longer. We were in the old part of the inn, and it was exactly what I was looking for. It's right on the water and very quiet. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Easy access parking, which is free (I am leery of motels...

Terrible experience. Room seemed it was sruck in 1950 - very tired and worn out. The room reeked with the overwhelming odor of pine sol. Window glass was weathered and not appealing. Mold was growing on the bathroom ceiling. Desk folks didn't seemed too concerned. "Free" breakfast was cold and unappealing. Looks okay on the outside but not on the...
