“Overrated older Boutique hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

I've been staying at the Harbor Inn off and on for more than 20 years, and the room I stayed in, #106 , hasn't changed appreciably during that time. The room was dark and musty, the AC unit very noisy, and the bed so soft that it left me with a backache. Breakfast was acceptable but nothing special. I found the do it yourself egg and sausage breakfast sandwiches bizarre, but luckily the waffle iron worked. The stay was expensive at $141 with tax, and in my view was not worth the price.

Stayed July 2013, traveled solo

After reading some of the earlier reviews regarding the trains, I was a bit hesitant to stay here. I'm glad I did! The guys at the front desk were friendly and it was obvious that customer service and a perfect visit were important to them. Although the layout of the hotel was odd, the rooms were spotless and nicely appointed. The bathroom (toilet and tub) were a little small. The sink (outside the bathroom) was convenient and had good lighting. The room I stayed in was facing east-ish (on the hotel entrance side), and I did not get woken up by any trains. The location is great because you can walk to shops, the waterfront, and a wide variety of good restaurants. If I need to stay in the Edmonds area again, I will definitely return here.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms are on the front side of the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel two nights and enjoyed it very much.Staff were very helpful and courteous. Location was great, near good restaurants and the pier and ferry were within walking distance. The breakfast was good and the lady serving it was courteous and very helpful. The train whistle was not a problem it brought back memories of older happier times.

We liked the location because we could park and walk downtown and to the waterfront and restauraunts. We walked to the Edmonds Art Festival and it was fabulous!! I highly recommend it!
The room was nice enough. The train goes by a few times and is fairly close but it really didn't bother us at night. The breakfast which comes with the accomodations was pretty good and the room and tables and chairs were very nice. Great place to stay and walk to dinner at Arnies or Anthony's and apprciate the view of the sound and mountains and the ferry dock and beach.

It was nice to be able to reserve a room at Edmonds Harbor Inn again. It feels like coming home. Downtown is close enough for a nice walk. The breakfasts are great, and a cookie and coffee make a great night cap. The room is clean and comfortable for a good night's sleep. Really like hearing an occasional train whistle. All the associates are friendly and available to answer any questions. As a female traveling alone, I appreciate the feeling of being taken care of. Already looking forward to my next stay to visit family in Edmonds.

The folks here are great. Good location with lots to do close by. Good restaurants in walking distance. Also the ferry to Kingston.

The rooms are large. Breakfast included is better then most hotels at this level.

Beds are the best! And the location quiet. Good blackout curtains so great sleep even after the sun came up.

The weirdest Best Western Motel I've ever stayed in. It has a good location near the Harbor in Edmonds and the place is clean and the staff is nice. I could not put my finger on why the place was so weird. The layout--Weird. The ingress-egress...Weird. The key system...weird. The guest laundry...weird. I'm not saying it was bad...just strange. Maybe it was all the retiree's and seniors around. Maybe it was the train whistle, or the business center it shares a parking lot with. Its a strange place. U can check out...but you can never leave.

Dear Aspenspin,
The door locks are scheduled for replacement within the next year and the entry system will be changed to the card type; before we can change the locks all the doors in the original wings need to be replaced. Until such time and to ensure the perimeter doors are locked at all times, unfortunately, we do have a dual key system.
