“Great local getaway”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We stayed over the new year. it is a great place for a couples weekend. The breakfast was ok at best. great view from the room. The only things i was not pleased with was the shared bathrooms and the upper floor creaked. overall a great place to spend the weekend.

The welcome sign on the door is merely a painted piece of wood for decoration. The gentleman at the desk did not even look up to acknowledge me when I walked into the door. There were just two steps to be in front of him. He appeared to be inconvenienced by my presence, and when I asked if he had any rooms available, he just said "No." and put his head back into the computer. I couldn't possibly think about giving this place a second chance.

This is our 2nd time at CWI, the last was about 15 years ago when we stayed above the main building with a shared bathroom, had a great time, food and service was excellent. On this trip we stayed in one of the spacious lagoon rooms with our own washroom and no T.V., we understand the age of the buildings but found the creaking floor boards outside our room to be loud and without air conditioning the rooms tend to be somewhat warm unless you leave a window open. For some this is would be a perfect location and accommodation, just not for us. The front staff were excellent and our room was available well before check in time. Now the real disappointment was the bar / lounge, it was happy hour, the setting is awesome, but the non seafood was poorly prepared , presented and expensive, The bar did not have the inventory of beer and wine as per the menu with the poor waitress always saying she was sorry, No doubt the CWI is full of charm and character and off the beaten track that would appeal to some, again just not for us

We spent two days here in this quaint inn (there are more modern rooms also) and just relaxed. We had a free continental breakfast each day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You can sit outside on the deck and enjoy the view, play a game or read whatever floats your boat! Coupeville is about 3 miles away so you can also check out the shops or enjoy a bite to eat. The Inn does have a full service restaurant for dinner.

We took our bikes across on the ferry and stayed two nights at the Captain Whidbey Inn. We stayed upstairs in the old lodge with a shared bathroom. They provided robes so it was no problem. We had gone there on a Living Social Coupon so the price was defiantly right. Staff was friendly and the continental breakfast was good. The location and setting was great. The food was expensive in the inn but the mussels were good. The second night we went into town for dinner at Tobys. That was good and fun to do.

Stayed in one of the inn rooms with a garden view. The floorboards creek and the bathroom is shared but the charm of the place will overcome the faults. The continental breakfast is one of the better ones. Includes croissants, sliced fruit, grapes, yogurt, cereals and more. Views of the grounds and lagoon are beautiful. A short drive from highway 20 to Anacortes, but you will feel like you have truly escaped.

Room Tip: Some rooms have private bathrooms.

we recently stayed there on a Living Social 2 night stay.
The lady who checked us in was a very non gracious person and lacked people skills.
Nobody else in the whole establishment would even speak to us throughout our whole stay, they all seemed to have a mad look on there face.
Our room was over the bar and at check in they neglected to mention that there was going to be a reception later that evening that ran till 10:15pm.... needless to say, we didn't get to sleep till later.
We were so disappointed in the lack of caring from this establishment, we even emailed a note to the manager & never received an acknowledgement at all.

I hate to hear about your experience staying at the inn. We have, in recent months, stepped up our staff training and we have recently changed out most of our staff in favor of a dynamic group with extensive customer service experience. I hope you will give us another chance to provide a great getaway experience. Thank you for your comments.
