One night's stay, with partner, while driving from Spokane to Olympic Peninsula during beginning of rainy season (Nov.). Great location for viewing/strolling around harbor, good eats nearby (Market Café!). Shared kitchen facility, no breakfast provided. Immaculate condition, friendly hosts, free parking. Would stay here again.

We were in the area for a wedding. It was well worth the drive to stay in Gig Harbor at the Waterfront Inn. It is about a 150 yard walk to some local restaurants. ANTHONY'S being the best place to eat seafood in Gig Harbor is very close. Our room had a gas fire-place and the double glass doors opened...

I will start off by stating that it is extremely rare that I feel compelled to leave a review, but this is definitely an exception. The Waterfront Inn and our experience was absolutely amazing. From the first phone call regarding the reservation through to the check-in and our stay, our experience was second-to-none. Denise and Dennis are amazing hosts. Denise...

Nicely secluded while still being within waking distance of restaurants and shops. Gorgeous morning view. Comfortable bed. Friendly host. A couple wishes...better labeling on the decaf coffee. A clock somewhere in the room visible in the dark, and a second garbage can in the room. Loved our little getaway.

This Inn is lovely but the pictures don't really reflect the reality. Yes, it's on the water & a lovely setting; yes it is close to local restaurants and they do give out discounts for a couple. The owners were accommodating and very friendly. We were surprised to find the beautiful veranda overlooking the bay was actually the owners'. Be...

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to the Waterfront Inn ! We stayed in one of the walk-out waterfront rooms. It met our needs perfectly and "ditto" to the positive comments other reviewers have made. I am an avid gardener and found the hydrangeas & passion vine especially pretty and well-maintained. We found the service area under the...

I spent 8 nights at the Inn while working in downtown Tacoma. Although Gig Harbor is only a 16 minute drive from the city, it is truly worlds away. The Inn is very cozy, home-like and welcoming, and having your own private entrance allows you to come and go as you please. Each room has it's own decor, no two...

We had reservations at the Waterfront Inn for August 20, 2016. Unfortunately, we could not get there because our plane was grounded. I called them as soon as I knew we were not going anywhere! I now know they have a 5 day cancellation policy. I just want others to be aware. They said if they filled the room they...

The location is lovely. We had two rooms just steps from the water with really beautiful views of the harbor. There is a pier with seating to enjoy the view. The rooms themselves are adequate and a bit cluttered. The parking was difficult and annoying down a very very steep driveway that was tricky to back out (or in) to....

Loved the location of this place right on the water. Amazing view from our room and just steps from the huge deck. The room was very quaint and clean with a fireplace. I will definitely stay here again. The caretakers were great and very helpful on information about the area. Thanks!
