We really enjoyed the furniture and deck as a relaxing place to take in the harbor and mountains. This must be the best location on the Harbor. However I would not pay these prices to stay in a place like this anywhere else. First, parking is a challenge with a very steep driveway to schlep your stuff to the lower...

We really enjoyed our stay as the best waterfront view you could ask for. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and worth the value. We would definitely stay there again. The only concern is that it would be nice to have room darkening curtains. The other was a bit strange... The only soap we had available was in a white...

The best part of the Inn is its location, in more ways than one. Being right on the water with a very nice deck and also a dock with kayaks available was just what we were looking for after a warm afternoon ride into Gig Harbor. We used one of their kayaks to paddle around the harbor for a bit...

We practically lived on the enormous deck overlooking the harbor. We bought deli from the little store a couple blocks away and watched the sunset. Then got up in the morning and watched the sunrise sparkle over the water like little wings. Herons, eagles, and kingfishers all entertained us. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The owner and...

Just spent our 3rd consecutive 4th of July in Gig Harbor. My wife's uncle has a boat and we hang out during the day and then see the Tacoma fireworks before retreating to our hotel room. Last year we stayed at Maritime Inn which overall we found disappointing ... this year, we tried Waterfront Inn which worked much better for...

We stayed here in June of 2013 hoping to have a quiet getaway on the water. The Waterfront fit the bill. The accommodations were very comfortable and romantic. There was no restaurant, but the options in the area are good.

This Inn is quiet, relaxing and the view of Gig Harbor is outstanding. The bed is very comfortable and to wake up with that view is a great way to start your day. There are 3 wonderful restaurants within a block.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very clean! They have kayaks you can use and we loved our paddle around the harbor, saw a seal pop up right next to us! The owners are so nice and made sure we had everything we needed. She showed us to our room, showed us were everything...

We checked in on a Friday night for our anniversary getaway. The personal service was impressive, first, while we were en route, Sue called to let us know they were going out for a bit and told us how to check in. Very kind and friendly owners, Sue and Gary, who welcome you and then they leave you alone to...

Stayed in Boathouse room on a Sat night after a show at Morso Wine bar. There are 3 rooms downstairs in a row facing the water. Maximum privacy comes with the Boathouse room as it is on the end away from the stairs. All 3 downstairs rooms are similar in size deferring in decor. The dock outside the rooms is...
