This place looks rather unassuming but it is such a find!! Really nicely done and such an incredible value!! Good location, continental breakfast included and even loved the toiletries they provided! There is attention to the details. Great place to stay in Anacortes!!

The Marina Inn looks rather unprepossessing from the outside, but looks can deceive! We booked the king jacuzzi suite just to "get away" for a day or two, and the room was extremely comfortable and very clean. Even some kitchen utensils were available! The so-called "two-person" jacuzzi tub was hardly that, but perfectly adequate for one person. Breakfast was a...

Went to Anacortes for a whale watching excursion and were pleased to discover the Marina Inn. Located toward the start of the main drag, this hotel was convenient, clean and a good value. As a plus, the people were uniformly friendly and informative. They verified the quality of the Island Adventure operation (outstanding!) and recommended several excellent restaurants in town...

Nice overnight stay in Anacortes after exploring the Whidbey Island on our road trip. Spacious & comfortable rooms (2 * twin bed), extremely friendly & helpful staff. Lousy breakfast was a dispappointment but we survived. The old town of Anacortes is definitely worth seeing and offers some good restaurants as well!

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"...

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.
