This older, well maintained property is perfect for a family on a budjet. Two large beds in separate rooms with a full kitchenette offers privacy. It has a downtown location in walking distance to local restaurants and marinas. Staff was friendly and accomodating.

I am giving this place a 5-star review so it ups the ranking a bit. I went in expecting the absolute worse, but was pleasantly surprised. Is it a 5-star hotel? No, not even close. Do I like 5-star hotels? Yes, I do. However, for a 1 night stay for the Spring Wine Festival, it's perfect and I'll definitely stay here again (esp to catch a ferry). It was clean, the rooms are big, the staff friendly and easy check in/out. The location is amazing - close to everything, so you can leave your car and walk everywhere in the historic downtown area. The area is very safe too. So if 1-2 nights in Anacortes is what's needed, do yourself a favor and don't overlook this motel for price and location!

This place is the epitome of your old, kitschy motel. It is what it is, so don't expect 5 star amenities. The views are non-existent and the lobby wreaks of smoke. BUT, the receptionist was helpful and nice enough and the room was clean and surprisingly big... and that's all that really mattered to us (we just came in from camping and were staying the night -- needed a place to crash before heading out to the San Juan islands). It did have a kitchenette setup but we didn't use it (don't think it had dishes though).

Also it's walking distance to some decent restaurants and bars. The downside of that is of course the possibility of noise at night (there was a wedding party staying at this hotel and although I was awoken by their loud return, I was way to tired to care). Overall, it's pretty on par with your basic Motel 6, but with much more charm and in a pretty good location.

I must say I never really take the time to write a reveiw of a hotel and I do travel often. I must say my stay in Anacortes was for a funeral and we picked this hotel because it was close to the fairy. The manager Kathy was helpful and polite from the first phone call till the time we checked out. The rooms were very clean and Kathy gave me one of her own personal pans to cook in. I would suggest staying here to anyone and I wish more people who worked with the public treated me the way Kathy did. Thank you again for a very pleasant experience.
