“A disapointment. We had high hopes for...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2010

A disapointment. We had high hopes for the historic ambiance of this hotel. Unfortunately, the room was dirty and had a bad pungent odor. My disapointment comes as a person who frequents historic properties. The owners and management here have no business being the stewards of this site. It could be...and should be...so much more. Don't waste your money. Port Townsend has better experiences to offer.

This is a trip my husband and I will always remember- because it was such a horrible hotel. We laugh about it all the time (and not in a good way). We tried to check in at 3pm and the odd staff told us that our room was not ready but they had a 4pm room guarantee. We waited and the room was not ready until 5pm even though she kept stating that there was a 4pm room guarantee.

When she finally showed us to our room, it was like a broom closet next to the front desk. The room was dingy and dirty looking- straight out of a bad 1970's movie. Fake brass bed with an outdated dirty looking comfortor on the bed. The carpet was a disgusting shag and there was a slug crawling across the floor.
I started to cry, it was so hideous. We would have left but every hotel in town was booked during summer. I was afraid to sleep in the bed.

On a lighter note, the dining room was charming and quite decent.

The staff was very unprofessional and not service oriented. I will not be back.

Stayed August 2009, traveled as a couple

Haunted hotel? I've been here twice now, stayed in the same room. Some strange things happened the first time so we had to return to the same room. We were not disappointed. As for the hotel, it is beautiful, very clean, beds were really comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious. I will be returning again and again every chance I get.

It was an interesting weekend. The room was nice, except we had a problem turning the heater off -- it seemed to stay on high heat no matter which end of the dial we turned it to. We finally called maintenance, and of course they turned it down and the problem was solved, even though we thought we had already done that with no results. Ghosts???, probably not, but who knows?

What a great plan! Girls nights out and shopping in the quaint little town of Port Townsend. Shared a room with a friend and although our bathroom was one door down the hall, it was with our room number on it and only ours. How nice! I ate some clams in the bar that were to die for and the bartender was fabulous and mixed a scrumptious martini...two olives...oh hoooowwww fabulous darling. All I needed was a long cigarette holder. Lovely continetal breakfast and off the airport. Refreshing!!
One Caviat...Office staff was a little wary about my using the computer to print a boarding pass for the airport, but they did eventually let me.

This is a must see hotel. It was amazing. The grounds were beautiful. The staff was charming. The food and wine were great. The haunted atmosphere was wonderful.
