We stayed for 7 nights, making it our base for exploring this section of the Olympic National Park, Port Townsend, Sequim and Cape Flattery. Our room faced the strait, which made ALL the difference. The view is great. Watching the ferry come in and out is fun. Right in front is a coastal trail where you can walk for miles. There's even a small park on a bluff off the trail which has a beam from the World Trade Center, honoring all those lost on that tragic day. It was donated to the city from the Port Authority of NY.
As for the hotel, our room was very spacious, 2 queens and a good sized bathroom. Old style TV, but the room was clean and functional, nothing fancy. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfasts were awesome if you ordered ala carte. The buffet wasn't special. Kudos to the friendly helpful waitresses on the morning shift. They are truly this city's ambassadors. We had dinner the first night we arrived and were disappointed. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance, so go there instead. The ferry to Victoria is a 5 minute walk away. $17 one way.
I would most definitely recommend this hotel if you stay in a waterfront room. If not, all you'll be looking at is the parking lot and you can get something less expensive elsewhere.
