I really had wanted to like this - I enjoy the quirky and non-chain type hotel but this was quite a disappointment. It is in a very good location for Port Townsend, near the main street but quiet, and with its own parking but the interior was not so much quaint as depressing. It is clean enough, but quite tired, and the furniture all looked like things my grandmother would have thrown away . We were on the second floor (up a very steep flight of steps from the street entrance -and there is no offer of assistance) in a double suite. The bedroom and living room, with small kitchenette, were cramped and the bathroom was in need of an upgrade. There is an odd smell abotut the common parts that the air freshener could not quite overcome. The breakfast basket (you decide the day before and it is left, promptly, at your choice of an early or late slot) was adequate but in cheerless little packets. Fortunately the weather was good in Port Townsend as we spent as little time in the room as possible. The 'gardens' which appear charming on the website were almost entirely taken up with a drooping marquee.
One very good feature, however, was the complimentary entry to the Athletic Club just down the street. It didn't look very promising from the outside but is large and very well equipped inside.
