We knew we weren't going to be in our room for very long, and at $70 per night, we figured this place would be fine. The queen rooms are very small, but they do have a mini fridge and a microwave, which is great. The room was clean and fine. The mattress was not comfortable, but it wasn't uncomfortable. Also, bring your own hair dryer. The thing I didn't understand was that the hotel seemed to be half-full, but we were put in a room right by the generator for the grocery store that is right next door. My hubby didn't have ear plugs and he didn't sleep so well, but I was fine (with my ear plugs). Also the delivery truck woke him up at 5:00 am on Monday. People staffing the front desk were friendly, but didn't have any advice on when to line up for the ferry, something that can be tricky during tourist season. Overall, this place is a bargain for the price, and I would recommend it for any budget traveler who would rather spend their $$ on good food and experiences.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Spend a night...Not a fortune! It's really simple: Smaller Rooms = Smaller Rates. At The Orca Inn, we are proud to offer the smallest rooms in the state of Washington! Which means we have the lowest hotel room rates on San Juan Island. (Of course, for just a few dollars more, we have larger King and Double Queen rooms). With the money you save, you can spend more on amazing whale watching tours, incredible kayak trips, and other island adventures that you will remember for a lifetime. As Mr. Carson once said, "The business of life is the acquisition of memories." And at the Orca Inn, business is good! ... more less
