The Marina Inn was the location we chose for an overnight stay before catching the ferry and it was a very pleasant surprise. Though this is an older property it has been well renovated and is both clean and well kept. As with many older properties, sound does carry between rooms more than at the new hotels but this is...

Stayed here because we were going to be too late to catch the last ferry to the San Juan Islands. This is a perfectly adequate motel at a good price, with a great location for our purposes. Rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast room is pleasant and the breakfast, though nothing special, is perfectly fine. Front desk staff (24...

Clean, nicely decorated room with a comfortable bed. Had wifi and all the usual amenities.There is plenty of parking, along with restaurants just down the road. There's also a basic (non hot) breakfast in the morning. I also liked the liquid soaps and shampoos in the bath area.

Needed a hotel for one night before catching the ferry. Parking was tight and difficult with a truck but we unloaded and had to walk through the lobby, up stairs and down a long hallway to our room as there is only one entrance to the entire hotel. The room itself was fairly nice although there were strange black "marks"...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your comments. Just a note: Being that we are a hotel rather than a motel, all entry access is through the lobby to ensure the security of our guests. We apologize for any issues you found with the hotel or your room and always strive to...

Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fine and the staff was friendly and helpful. The price was one of the lowest in the city and was worth the money. It is on the main street so it is easy to get to restaurants and tourist attractions such as Mt. Erie and other parks. I would certainly stay...

The front desk is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We stayed Thursday and Friday nights. Found out Saturday morning we still needed a room for Saturday and Sunday nights. Due to the fact it was the weekend of the Oyster Run, there were no rooms available for the weekend. The young lady at the front desk remembered me and called my...

We were delighted to help make the rest of your stay possible. I have an excellent staff that goes above and beyond the call of duty to help our guests whenever possible. Our regulars describe us as their home away from home which I believe says a lot about our customer service and how important . Pam Audette Manager

My husband and I just left, after a two night stay. The rooms were clean and quiet. All staff were very nice and friendly. Plus, the location is convenient to the historic downtown and the ferry. Very satisfied and would stay again!

The inn is worth the price. It has nice big rooms with a nice bathroom. All the facilities are clean and well kept. It is fairly close to the ferry to San Juan Islands, it is about 4 miles away. There is a microwave in the room and supermarkets close by. Cons. The breakfast area is very small and not...

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Without having a kitchen on the premises, we are, unfortunately, limited as to what food we can serve. We try to provide an assortment of things including fresh fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereals, muffins, bagels, coffee, teas,...

So convenient to the Anacortes ferries, this little hotel was a perfect overnight with a simple but healthy breakfast included in the fare. Beds were comfortable, rooms were quiet, good lighting and climate control, full-length mirror and closet space, working wifi AND the friendliest check in and check out staff around. Nothing fancy, but comfy and safe.

We picked this hotel primarily for its close proximity to the ferry dock for our morning ferry departure. And we were pleased that not only was its location convenient, but the rooms were very clean and neat. The provided shampoo, conditioner, and soaps were of very nice quality.

I have the most amazing staff, many of whom have been with the hotel for years. They know the area, they know how to provide great customer service and they know how to provide a guest with a very clean and neat room and a positive experience. That's why we have so many repeat guests who return time and time...
