The decor is very nice, the front staff were very friendly and helpful. There's no restaurant here but there is is a continental breakfast served. It was very good. There's are a couple of restaurants within a very short walk for lunch or dinner.
I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back!

Our family started our holiday to Seattle a day earlier and opted to come over to Bainbridge Island to get a taste of island life. When the "big chain" hotel was sold out we opted for the Island Country Inn (just down the street) and was quite pleased.

This inn appears to be a family run business, with well maintained rooms with light coloured wood furniture and comfortable surroundings. While we didn't get the chance to try the pool, it certainly would offer the kids a little treat during a warm summer day.

The Inn offered a nice little continental breakfast with the usual cereal, toast, porridge, waffles, etc. Enough choice for everyone, including the pickiest child!

Internet access is a nice little add-on.

Overall a nice stay and the start to a great day on Bainbridge Island.

Room Tip: Probably best away from the pool area.

We stayed for three nights with our two kids. The pool was out of commission but the weather was crummy anyway. This is a nice place and a short (15 min.) walk to the ferry, restaurants, grocery store, etc. Be sure to ask the front desk for directions for the back path to the ferry terminal. Nice breakfast too! Clean.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to write a review on the Island Country Inn. I do apologize that the pool and spa were out of commission. We are working hard to get them both up and running. We are in the process of doing some outside renovations, and should have them done before to long. I hope you come back again soon to visit. Thank you!

This inn is a decent option compared to some of the pricier places close to the Frey and the main commercial area. It is within about a 15 minutes walk from the ferry dock and the related co Mercia stuff, but there are a number of eateries and a grocery store nearby as well. Unfortunately the pool was still out of service, and the road noise from 305sometimes intruded, but overall this was a good value. The staff worked hard to accommodate our early arrival, the evening cookies were always welcome, and the breakfast was fine. One odd thing .. Te room could have used a place to put luggage and so forth...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We value all of our guests comments. I am glad you found the location a plus, but we do realize that the noise from the road can be a problem. We are working hard to get the pool up and running as soon as possible. I hope that you were able to take advantage of the Aquatic Center down the road. I do agree with the luggage rack, we will look into acquiring some soon. Please come back again soon.

Nice place for the price; good-sized rooms. The kids were looking forward to the pool, but turned out it was closed for repairs. Check in was disastrous; I still can’t figure out what happened, but long story short, they ended up giving us keys to 2 different rooms, both us which were occupied w/ other people and their stuff, and finally, half an hour later, after carting our luggage all over the hotel, got us into an open room. The free continental breakfast w/ the make-your-own waffles was a nice touch.

Thank your for your review comments. Unfortunately our pool has been closed due to a Federal Government bill that restricted certain types of drain covers in commercial pools. They recalled a number of different drain covers, so for the safety of our guests, we had to close the pool. We are working hard to get it replaced and make the accessable for our guests. In the meantime we are covering the cost of our guests going to the Aquatic Center, which is just down the road. We will be using your comments as a training tool for our front desk, when they check in a guest. We hope to see you again in the future.

Well we came over here for business purposes, and it was just like the pictures, the beds weren't super comfortable, the decor was out of date, tv wasn't a flat screen. The breakfast was AMAZING though, it was hot, and I would come back just for the b-fast!
