“A fine (re)treat in Anacortes”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

My lovely wife and I stayed at the Majestic for Valentine's Day evening on our way up to the ancestral retreat on San Juan Island, and are glad we did.

Reception was gracious and expert. Everything about this hotel is quiet, refined and beautifully, thoughtfully finished. No Bubbas here.

Our room on the third floor was huge, beautifully appointed and carefully decorated, with a period touch. Ground coffee was provided, together with a French press. (No timer; my powerful though cheap - thanks, Jeff Bezos - multiple-city world travel clock has a countdown timer that we used instead.) No clock, in keeping with the timeless vibe. Although the hotel has a good restaurant, we decided to eat elsewhere for dinner because the Adrift restaurant across the road had excellent reviews. And we left too early in the morning, needing to catch a ferry, to try the excellent-sounding breakfast, which started late, as is proper for the leisured class.

I shall not talk of price. How crass.

Late at night there was a bit of a kerfuffle because a woman, leaving behind her boyfriend (?), stormed from the hotel, threw his belongings from her car into the parking-lot, and sped off into the night. A sad end to Valentine's Day for them, or at least for him; she was perhaps insulated by dudgeon. Say larvae. We've all been there, not so? Even beautiful surroundings can't save us from ourselves, nor from those we love. As Bill B.Y. said, "Man [or woman] is in love, and loves what vanishes / what more is there to say?"

I loved it here the room I stayed in had a huge porch with two room two bath rooms huge shower and a jet tub girlfriend loved it. The only issue we had was the night clerk not answering the phone and being rude to us. But the rest of the staff is very knowledgeable and polite I will for sure be back.

This was a good place to stay because of the location. It is right in the center of downtown Anacortes. It has charm and character. It is not your typical cookie cutter type of hotel. It is definitely an Inn. The restaurant was okay but didn't ring my bell. I had eaten here years ago and I remember it being a lot better. This was a short stay or me so I cannot wax eloquently.

Room Tip: High floor because the windows are old and they let in a lot of street noise. However, during the w...

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Majestic Inn on at least three occasions. The last two were in a Traditional King Suite within the new building. Upon entering the building one immediately experiences feelings of quality and elegance. It's clear that attention has been paid to every detail. The decor in the room matched that of the building giving you a very positive atmosphere. Quality workmanship throughout. A large and spacious room with a very nice bathroom and walk-in shower. We love the view overlooking Commercial St. The only negative I found was that the shower didn't have any grab bars in it.
We enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar. A very delightful atmosphere. We didn't try the restaurant which was nearly full for we had previous reservations at the A'Town Bistro across the street- A favorite of mine. We look forward to many more stays at the Majestic. It's defiantly our go to hotel in the area. I personally feel it may be a bit underpriced, but I'm surely not going to complain about that :o)

My husband and I recently stayed one night at this wonderful hotel, and now are excited to return soon. The hotel is beautiful, historical and all the staff made us feel so welcome and cared for. Shannon and Carol at the front desk were so accommodating, and we very much enjoyed eating at the hotel bistro (happy hour was great!), where again we were given great service and a warm welcome. The area surrounding the hotel was wonderful for walking, and the cold, fresh air so invigorating. We are already planning our next visit! Thank you!

My wife and I just enjoyed a very relaxing stay at this lovely hotel, we stayed in the new building and had a view over looking the water. The room was spotless and the staff were extremely friendly. It was also situated next to many restaurants.

Would definitely stay there again.

I travel a lot for work and play but have never ever written an online review. Until now...

My friend and I both commented, upon leaving the Majestic Inn last weekend, that we felt inspired to write a review of our stay.

From the moment we entered the building, we were warmly welcomed and well attended-to. The front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, without being at all overbearing or superficial. They all seemed like genuinely nice people with our interests and preferences in mind.

The woman who was working when we checked in (I wish I had gotten her name) offered us the opportunity to look at a couple different rooms and choose the one that most appealed to us. We looked at a room in the older/original part of the hotel, and one in the new addition. We ended up selecting the new room, but both were quite nice and had their own charms.

Our room was new, comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed. The beds were comfortable. We never saw or heard another guest on our floor, though we saw the housekeepers cleaning another room. so it was evident that there were other rooms booked at the time we were there. The only thing I might suggest as improvement would be the strong scent of the bathroom cleaner or air freshener, which my friend and I both found overwhelming.

The desk staff were helpful with restaurant recommendations, and sent up fresh cream for our coffee when we requested it (at no charge). The bar staff were also friendly and provided good service. The food and drinks at the 5th Street Bistro, in the hotel, were very good.

Lastly, I'd like to report that my friend and I spent a wonderful afternoon at the Apothecary Spa. Molly, who provided my treatments, was wonderful, personable, professional. My friend indicated that the woman who provided her services was also great. We talked about driving up to Anacortes again just to visit the spa.

All-around, our stay at the Majestic Inn and Spa was perfect and we will definitely be back!
