“The place to stay in La Conner”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I booked a room here Friday afternoon for a stay that night. No problem getting a room. All rooms have a view of the channel. We had one on the first floor which still had a great view from our private porch. Other nice amenities include gas fireplace, comfy bed, sitting area, fridge and coffee maker in the room. Basic but clean bathroom. Within walking distance to shops/restaurants. Cookies and coffee in the lobby and a nice complimentary breakfast with indoor and outdoor seating. Ask for a AAA discount if you are a member. A little more expensive than their sister hotel, La Conner Country Inn, but worth it.

My husband and I checked in for one night stay on a weekday. The front desk staff was super helpful recommending restaurants We stayed on the top floor the room was spacious very clean and very comfortable, the bathtub was amazing! The shower is a little claustrophobic with the slanting of the ceiling, it feels like a closet under the stairs but there is plenty of light. and the deck was smaller in size but still comfortable. We also enjoyed the back patio overlooking the water. The continental breakfast was a slightly disappointing offering no warm breakfast options.

Quiet, scenic, boutique lodging with a great view of the Swinomish Channel and adjacent indian reservation. Rooms nicely appointed with wood shutters on view windows, private balconies, and gas fireplaces. Car parking is a bit limited but they also have a private dock for boaters.
Nice continental breakfast was enlarged to include fruit and full frühstuck-style amenities

Room Tip: Definitely get a channel side room

My husband and I stayed here for a night on our way to the San Juan Islands. We were travelling with a bike group and it worked out well for everyone. We had lunch and breakfast at the lodge and the food was quite good. I liked our room which was very good size and had a balcony overlooking the water. It was tricky to figure out how the air condtioner worked but once we figured it out it worked well. Enjoyed our stay here - even though it was quite brief.

Really liked this place. Our room was very comfy. We were a group of 3, and the Captain Suite worked out well. This room can hold up to five, as long as you don't mind sharing one bathroom. There is another room for multiple guests which houses 4/5 and has two bathrooms. I loved sleeping in the tiny side room of the suite, which had 2 single beds, a porthole window, another window that opened ( parents of toddlers note: this window opens to the floor and has only a tiny fragile chain to prevent it from opening all the way ). The main part of the suite consisted of a small sitting area by the gas fireplace, a king bed, a small pullout sofa, a sink microwave and small fridge, and a large bathroom with a water view. We also had a small balcony. We all enjoyed watching the boats go by, so very close.
Service was great. There are no food or drink facilities here other than a soda machine. Breakfast is included but definitely needs improvement... In a town known for food and having several good bakeries, we were surprised by the packaged bagels and artificial- tasting pastries and loaves.
The cleaning could have been more thorough, the coffee machine was not washed out for us and there was no dish soap in the room.
A short walk brings you to the centre of town. Some shops nearest the hotel kept erratic hours on weekdays.
Overall highly recommended.

Room Tip: Water view is the only way to go.

We stayed one night at the Wild Iris Inn and the second at the Channel lodge. Both are wonderful accomodation, but for the money, the Channel Lodge offers waterfront rooms, with small balconies, nice size room with fireplace and very nice decor. Breakfast was included in the cost and consisted of home made granola, yogurts, nice pastries, toast, ham, cheese, boiled eggs, orange juice, coffee/tea. The breakfast setup on the second floor of the lodge had lots of room and decorated tastefully.

The room was spacious, nicely decorated and had all the amenities we needed.

What I liked most was the beautiful room and the balcony to watch the boats and birds go by.

What we disliked most was that we were not allowed to check-in before 3:00 pm. It was stated that "that was their policy" not, "I am sorry, your room isn't ready" Other than that the service was great and we wouldn't hesitate staying again. Note: Channel lodge sells discount booklets for $1.00 and it's for discounts off of food and shops in La Conner.. wish we had found this before our last day in town.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor, which was close to the water, but for a better view, ask for one on th...

The Channel Lodge is likely the nicest place in La Conner. It's located on the main street and just steps away from the shops and art galleries. I had made reservations and there were no difficulties checking in. There were fresh cookies and coffee in the lobby. The room was small, but nice (queen size bed). The rate was $149 plus taxes. There was a small porch overlooking the channel and two beach chairs to utilize. The room was a bit stuffy/musty and that took getting use too. Also, the bed wasn't at all comfortable for me, but I understand that soft vs. hard is a matter of personal preference, so I can't really complain. There was a very nie complimentary breakfast with assorted fruits, juices, pastries, cheese etc.
