We only stayed one night in Port Townsend, but this was a great spot for it! It is definitely an older place and not a modern, trendy hotel, and as long as you know that going into it you'll be very happy. Great staff and really cool room with high ceilings and a private bath. Would def stay again.

We stayed at this quaint hotel a few weeks ago. It is just your basic hotel. No frige or A/C but within walking distance to anything! The beds in our room..#6...were just perfect! Would we stay again, you ask....YES! It was very clean and right in town.

My group of 6 couples stayed here in late March for a birthday getaway from Vancouver. We each had our own suites, but one couple made sure to book room 15 (the top floor room with a patio, kitchen and view), so we spent lots of time just hanging out on the patio there. The service was great and the...

I stayed here on two separate trips in December, in Suites 15 & 16. Both suites had full kitchen set ups and Suite 15 has a gas fireplace, deck, and excellent water views. Quiet location, perhaps due to being off season, and unique historic charm with spacious rooms & high ceilings. Suite 15 is the best as a large studio...

We stumbled upon the Waterstreet Hotel after a horrible night in a hostel. All we wanted was a place to sleep and to sort out our bags for the four days of camping we had planned. A very cosy place, comfy bed and clean. We chose room 14 at the top of the stairs. It was ashamed bathroom, but had...

Okay, we were looking for something different and inexpensive for a single night. That objective was definitely achieved. We did not pre-book, so were able to review the available rooms. The building is truly fantastic. High ceilings, period furnishings, magnificent central atrium. The rooms vary considerably from smallish shared-bathroom to imperial grandeur with sweeping sea views. We opted for an...

The Waterstreet Hotel is charming, spotlessly clean, and has the friendliest staff! It was a treat to stay in such a historic place filled with pictures, furniture, and memorabilia from its 100+ year history. We highly recommend it!

i have stayed at the waterstreet on 3 separate occasions. the rooms are very clean and decorated in the 'old style' you would expect from a heritage building. i prefer to book rooms without a washroom...cost less... and the share washrooms are always very clean. note there are about 30 stairs to get to the 1st floor.
