“Unimpressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were treated badly upon check-in and things went down hill from there. The room was dated, the mattresses old and lumpy, and the pillows were very thin and there were not enough to compensate for this. No extra pillows or blankets were available in the room. No coffee-maker, iron or blow-dryer in the rooms. What hotel does not have a blow-dryer at least? The breakfast was minimal at best- muffins and toast was the extent of it. How this hotel got such glowing reviews is beyond me. We were completely unimpressed and would never recommend this hotel to anyone. Never again..

Room Tip: Find a different hotel!!

We stayed in an apartment suite here for two nights. Accommodation on Whidbey Island was difficult to find, so for that reason we were thankful to find this spot. The kitchen had scare utensils, and was far from clean and he suite had a distinct unpleasant odor (the two may be related). The beds were very soft, but comfortable enough.

Room Tip: Stay in Coupeville rather than Oak Harbor if you can. Oak Harbor is more of a military town.

Good value, clean premises, nice room, comfortable bed. Located close to facilities. On main road but no noise; has blackout drapes & effective yet quiet AC. Often available for less than area average. Two deficits: No in-room coffee & a very minimal continental breakfast.

This is a hidden gem, do not judge the Inn by the outside, the inside is worth a try. Super clean, and good quality furniture. The free breakfast is simple but enough to get you on the road.We have paid almost twice the rate of the Acorn and not had any free breakfast or as pleasant rooms.Its on the main road we we did not hear too much noise. Worth the money will stay again.

We stayed at the Acorn Motor Inn for a week while visiting relatives in Oak Harbor. The motel was very clean, the bed very comfortable, and the owner very welcoming. We were very pleased with our stay and will,definitely stay here next time. Very nice!

Newly remodeled and clean, clean, clean. Great location, friendly staff, no view but convenient to everything. Bed and pillows fluffy and comfortable. Best of all, can walk to Seabolt's Smokehouse for delicious smoked salmon. If we are ever in the area again we will stay here.
