“Close to the Ferry”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Let me start out by saying this hotel is the only one near the ferry. I found this out the hard way, The hotel I originally booked at claimed it was by the ferry but was miles away in the Anacortes downtown area. I needed something close since we had to be there nearly 2 hours before due to how full the ferries are. Rooms were clean and looked recently renovated. Breakfast far surpassed my expectations and the kids loved the waffles. Staff was helpful and their espresso bar had some of the best coffee ive ever had. Looking forward to coming back on the return trip.

Room Tip: King Rooms have Keurig Machines!

We spent last night here and wish we could spend a couple more days. This beautiful well-kept property feels more like a bed and breakfast and very reasonably priced. The owner, Linda was so friendly and helpful and very hands-on with details and service. The view of the ferry and harbor is lovely. This is the nicest place we stayed during our week in
Washington State.

Very nice with great views. Bistro food and drink were perfect, and it is just up the road from the ferries that go to the San Juan Islands. Nice area for a stroll. Breakfast included. We spent the night and took the ferry the next day. Very convenient. We would definitely go back.

Talked to Christine on the phone. Last minute booking. She was great. Room was great. Good value as well!
Owners are on site daily and you definitely get the small town feel. Easy parking and a little buffet style breakfast in the dining room. Waffles, bananas, cereal, coffee, tea, juice.

My wife and I spent 2 nights in the king corner unit with fireplace. The view is certainly scenic. There is still some grounds construction going on that others have mentioned, but it appears to be winding down. The grounds are looking very nice. The room and bathroom are large for a hotel/motel at their price point. Our bathroom had a jetted tub and shower heads at BOTH ends of the tub with separate temperature controls. Everything was very clean in the unit except for the tub jets, which were growing a little mold. The heater for the room IS the gas fireplace. It operates from a thermostat on the wall. If you want the ambience of the fireplace but do not want the room to get too hot, there is a side window you can open to let in cooler air. The room had a pillow-top mattress, but it was still quite firm. If you like a mattress you sink into, this room is not for you. We did not hear anyone in surrounding rooms except very muffled voices on a couple of occasions. We did not hear other toilets flushing or water running. This room is also away from parking and driveways so we did not hear vehicles coming and going. The two staff members we spoke with were both very nice. Included breakfasts at hotels/motels can vary widely in my experience. This one was probably a little better than average, especially given the price point. The Belgian waffle maker was a nice touch. We would happily stay here again.

We were a late last minute stay and were immediately made to feel right at home. We'd been on the road for days and I wanted to wash some clothes and the washer wasn't working so I let the lady know and in 15 minutes the repair man was there and gone, I was shocked. The room was so lovely, and comfortable and we had a great view. We ended up staying another night because and will come back again. Thank you !!

Room Tip: We had the room with a fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub and a kings size bed, highly recommend this room!

When my wife and I arrived we were pleased to see that the cottage we were in had a nice view of the water. The buildings were a little dated but you can see obvious signs of updating. I don't understand people who write bad reviews based solely on the age of the structure. Old hotels take a lot of time and money to refurbish. I think they are doing a wonderful job. The yard around our cottage was perfect for our dogs. The best thing about our stay had to have been the room service. I was expecting food in foam containers but what we got was lasagna with a nicely garnished salad with dessert all served on nice looking glass plates. All of which was served on a tray delivered to our door. Wonderful presentation. A lot of care went into our meal. Very impressed.

Room Tip: Room #15 The Hillside Cottage. Very private.
