Breakfast was simple and not the...

I cannot sing enough praises for this place. My husband and I have been here multiple times, and we are always impressed. Lovely setting. Wonderful staff. Wonderful breakfast (they present fresh, house made scones, fresh fruit, toasts, great coffee, yogurt, hard boiled eggs). They make fresh cookies every afternoon. We will be staying at the Bird Rock over and over...

Comfortable place all the way around. Very clean, organized, roomy, kind staff, centrally located. Would stay here again. Matia room was the best from all I saw. Did not mind the shared bathroom situation. Restrooms were large and clean and always available.

Took my girlfriend here for her bday this April. Great staff, awesome rooms and phenomenal prices. We took the ferry from anacortes on Friday night (about an hour and a half north of Seattle) Saturday we rode bikes to Roach Harbor and had a great dinner at the Backdoor (Backgate?) restaurant. All in all an awesome, romantic and affordable weekend....

We spent one night at the Bird Rock Hotel and plan on going back in a few weeks. The rooms had a clean modern appearance, the staff could not have been friendlier and the location was walking distance to everything we wanted to do (whale watching).
