Great location in Eastbound - across the street from the water and easy walk to shops and restaurants, although one of the best places to dine is in the Inn! Our room was dog-friendly, so great to bring out pup. It is an old Inn that keeps its charm, but has new additions and remoldeled rooms that are up to... More

We returned to Orcas Island for the first time since 1989 and found that although it has developed a bit further, it is still the ideal escape from urban and suburban busyness. A totally beautiful inn in a totally beautiful setting. I think our Bayview Suite was maybe the best room we've ever had. The inn has great water views... More

The staff were very helpful. My mother had a walker so we were in an adjacent building that had easy access. The dining room has steps up and down so that was not able to be used, but we sat in the lobby and enjoyed the view on a fantastically beautiful day. The chapel out back and the gardens are... More

My wife and I spent the night in one of suites at Outlook last week. The room is great, clean, spacious and comfortable. But the real treat is the view out the front window onto the waterfront, the sound and the islands beyond. The balcony is a great place to see it all. And the restaurant on site is excellent....

Let me start by saying I have stayed here before, but in their new addition, which is LOVELY and has some nice amenities. I was booked into a room with a shared bathroom and shower by a 3rd party. I thought, "Ok, that's different, but no biggie." I was right, sharing those wasn't bad, but be prepared for a TINY... More

Get a room in the original part of the inn and ask for a water view. Our room was great, comfortable beds, a sink with large countertop, and plenty of space. We had clean restrooms on the hall and a clean hall shower. Our room was easily accessible from the parking lot behind the Inn. The amenities were nice and... More

We had a first floor room that faced the parking lot and Inn proper, so missed out on having a water view of the sound. A second floor room on the front would give you a nice view. The room was comfortable with a couch, frig, etc.

I found myself with a few days left over after dropping my first born off at college in Washington so I grabbed a rental car at SeaTac and off to the islands I went.

Hideously filthy bathroom floor and mold on shower edge. Hugely overpriced for quality of room. Shag rug looked very dirty. Front desk employees curt and rather unfriendly. I would never stay at this hotel again.

We absolutely LOVED our four days at the Outlook Inn! The staff was so friendly and helpful. Every detail of the Inn was so thoughtfully done. It offers a great choice of accomodation options. The restaurant was also delicious. Just a perfect place!
