Spent the night here prior to taking the ferry to San Juan Island. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. There can be quite a bit of traffic on highway heading to ferry, but surprisingly the noise was not an issue. They did have a continental breakfast included with our stay. There were no hot items, but many other items to eat. Had a microwave and toaster.
Room did have a refrigerator so one could buy a few staples to take to islands.
Hotel is about 7 miles from the ferry. There are other hotels closer, but the drive was easy and the price of the room was a good value. There were plenty of gas stations to fill up at on the way to ferry. Safeway had best price when we were there.
Girl at front desk told us to allow 1 hour for ferry wait. (we were taking ferry on a monday). Since we'd never done it before, we went 2 hours ahead and were among the first to arrive. It made for a long wait, but it was interesting seeing the ferries etc. Plenty of restrooms and food to eat while waiting.
Hotel offered excursions. i.e. whale watching etc. Next visit may consider booking here versus San Juan in that taking the ferry can absorb a lot of your time for a shorter visit.
