I have enjoyed my stay at the Waterfront Inn. It is the perfect place to rest, unwind and find refreshment. It is close to everything you need, yet it is private with a small town feel. I plan to visit again soon. I think this inn will be great for any season of the year because its close to the...

It was so wonderful to skip the chain hotels and stay in a place with real history and genuine people. Denise and Dennis make sure you're comfortable, happy, know where everything is - and then let you be. The place has character, truly exceptional views of Gig Harbor and Mt. Rainier (when it's out), super comfortable room - very memorable...

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...
