“Avoid the Poulsbo Inn”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2006

I stayed at the Poulsbo Inn for one night. The evening hotel clerk, L., was extremely prejudiced, as evidenced by her treatment of this single female tourist. I did not feel safe and placed a chair in front of the door. The next morning, I was given inaccurate directions, which caused me to loose 2 1/2 hour of my day. I would discourage any woman travelling alone to avoid the Poulsbo Inn at all costs.

None of our staff is prejudice in any way. The reviewer did not say why she felt that she was treated badly. What happened that would make her feel this way? We have never had anyone complain that they felt any of our staff was prejudice.

Nice room with a fridge and microwave oven. Pretty good biscuits and gravy at the continental breakfast. Great selection of different teas. Room didn't have many spare electrical outlets. Wired high speed internet - no wireless available. TV only had a coax connector so we couldn't hook up our portable DVD player to it.

Stayed February 2006

I have been coming to the Poulsbo regin for over 10 years and have stayed at just about every establishment in the area. I will tell you this that you will not find a better deal or nicer place to stay. The Executive Suites are wonderful for the value. Anyone who does extended stays away from home will appreciate all you get from this great motel. Everytime I am coming to the region the Poulsbo Inn is the first place I call for a room. Keep up the great work and I may be seeing you after the first of the year.

Again, the reviews led me to expect a lot from this hotel. Although the staff and lobby were very nice, the room was just so-so. As others have noted, the hotel is right on the main road to the ferry. It might have been my room location, which was on the ground floor facing the road, but it was VERY noisy all night long. I could also hear the people in the room above me walking around, as well as persons outside the room.

The room was large enough and mostly clean (the bathroom was VERY clean). One exception. As I hung some clothes up in the little closet corner, my eyes wandered up to the ceiling corner and there was a HUGE wolf spider! Luckily, I had a very brave room companion who did the catch and release. Now I'm pretty tolerant of spiders in a motel in the wooded Northwest area. However, there were several clumps of old cobwebs hanging around the closet and vanity area. They had obviously been there for a long time, so one would have to wonder how often the room is thoroughly cleaned.

Overall, I would probably stay here again if I was in the area. It would depend on the price. It might be worth it to stay a little farther away at a cheaper price.

A recent business trip took me to the Northwest, and all the usual places to stay were booked. So I opted to try the Poulsbo Inn and was wonderfully surprised. The staff is wonderful and warm, while providing excellent suggestions about the local area.

The room was well maintained and nicely adorned. The Continental Breakfast was the best I have seen anywhere.

Stayed one night at the poulsbo Inn on April 2, 2005 and it was wonderful. The rooms are super clean and the staff was most helpful. The breakfast was all you would ever want or need and the breakfast room was very clean and the help was friendly. We travel alot and this motel is one of the best we have stayed in. Outclassed the rest of the ones in town. Will go back again

While the hotel is not the Ritz it is very affordable and the people are wonderful. They went out of their way to answer all my questions and were very friendly. I thought the breakfast was good especially when compared to what you would pay for it otherwise. It is a very good value for the money and I would stay there again in a minute. Jan
