Scene: Left Albuquerque by air on a Tuesday at 7:00am flew to Seattle, Took shuttle from Seattle to the Anacortes ferry landing arriving at 8:30pm only to find the last ferry for the day just leaving.
After making a few calls, explaining my situation and finding room rates outrageously high, I stumbled upon the Anaco Bay Inn. I got manager Kim on the telephone, again explained my situation and she was awesome. She totally went out of her way to not only get us two rooms (two because I stumbled upon another lost soul at the ferry terminal) but to give us a reduced price and even the number for a cab we could call.
Upon arrival she was ready for us making the check-in process quick and painless. We were planning to take a 6:00am ferry the next morning and Kim was gracious enough to call for a Taxi to be waiting for us the next morning and up to our rooms we went.
Upon opening my door I found a very clean, totally smoke and odor-free, spacious and comfortably furnished room that was far beyond my "Cranky Traveler" expectations. The bed was comfortable, the room silent and I got the best night's sleep in a week.
Upon departure Kim and her co-manager Charles made sure to ask how our accommodations were, the Taxi waiting outside. They bis us farewell.
Now, I do not normally take the time to write reviews but Kim and Charles and all involved with the Anaco Bay Inn really went out of the way with showing small-town care and concern for, not only its regular customers, but for stranded folks like myself. I have lived in the area for 25 years and stumbled upon this gem of an Inn. I LOVE these people!
Anytime in the future whenever I need a room in Anacortes I know where I'm staying.... the Anaco Bay Inn (not to be confused by the "other" Anaco lodging in town. Incredible people, incredible value.
