We stayed at the Inn for two nights to be close to the ferry for Orcas Island. The hotel is small but doesn't lack anything! The front desk staff were very friendly and provided info about the area and recommendations. Our room was good sized and clean! The beds were comfortable and we slept great during our stay. One thing I loved about this place was that they provided higher end toiletries! It was much appreciated. Cookies are served in the evenings. Breakfast was included. It was standard and sufficient. We also felt the room was reasonably priced.

There wasn't much happening in the town but this was a convenient place to stay when catching the ferry. We would recommend the Inn and look forward to staying again in the future!

Good-sized rooms, nice clean queen beds in our standard room. Bathrooms well appointed with folded toilet paper and curtains arranged nicely! Well appointed, tastefully decorated and, did we say, clean? Front desk clerk was professional and friendly. All in all, well worth the reasonable price, even at the summer rate!

Very good surprise when we arrived at the Marina Inn in Anacortes. Our expectations changed when we saw the rooms !! very clean, nice decorated,good airco, perhaps a little small but confortable. Price was good and they serve continental breakfast. The location is on the main avenue of this cute little town.

Stayed in Anacortes over night to catch the Washington State Ferry in the early morning. Check in was easy and the staff were happy to joke with me. Room was a reasonable size and it was comfortable. Good size fridge in the room.

A number of restaurants within walking distance but staff all recommended the bowling alley for good food at a reasonable price. They were right.

Standard breakfast in a nice area. Good internet connection.

Good value for the money ($68.62)

Room Tip: Nice and quiet.

As you enter town its on the left at 33rd St, next to Bob's fish. Parking, okay but not great, might get full at some point, but otherwise, easy. Lobby very nice. Check in easy and friendly. Free brochures and coffee in lobby. 2 floors, no elevator. Ice, continental breakfast was good muffins, danish, toast (make your own), bagels, bananas, apples, coffee, OJ, apple cider, milk, cream cheese, butter, plastic forks, paper (sturdy) plates. Quiet. No street noise and we were next to lobby. We had dbl queen room. Good TV and reception. No problems at all with wi-fi. VERY comfy beds. Mini fridge. Bureau for clothes. Hair dryer, fancy fancy toiletries, lots of towels, many pillows, free warm cookies 6pm to 9pm. Free Seattle newspaper, Lighting good, sink small, tub for shower, little corner table, alarm clock. Only negatives I can think of was that the walls are a tad thin, we could hear arguments next door and they could hear us talking, maybe not what we said but voices. Good A/C. We had 2 laptops and there were not enough plugs. Design flaw I think in today's world. Toilet was oval seated and small, with low water feature, I tried to use my up-seat for disabled people but it didn't fit, so if you need a disabled room, ask for one, or hold on to wall grips and ease slowly down. Bathroom was small, functional only, not a place to dress. Full mirror in room. Very nice place, to make it perfect I would have a larger loo and better toilet, but its not bad, its just not ideal. Brkfst is 6-9 am. Nice little room. Front desk was 24 hours and friendly. Next to Bob's chowder house, which had good food. Overall a very nice place and affordable.

Room Tip: Indoor corridors, no elevator, my brother helped carry a woman's bags up the stairs as she was s...

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Marina Inn. I'm not sure if you were aware that we do have 3 accessible rooms; two with 1 king bed and one with 1 queen bed. However, we also have booster seats for the toilet which might have worked better than the one your brought as we found their design worked best with our toilets. Pam Audette, Manager

We stayed one night on a quick trip to Anacortes. The hotel was small but very clean and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. They had cookies in the lobby in the evening and offered a continental breakfast. The hotel was right on Commercial Avenue in a very convenient location. The price for the room was very reasonable considering we were off season. Would definitely stay again.

OK, maybe the rating should be a 4 7/8 only because the bathroom sink area is very small, but other than that, this place is real find in Anacortes. It's a small, well-maintained Inn that is so clean, you could eat off the floor. The staff is friendly and helpful, there are fresh baked cookies at 6 pm, mints in your room at night, and a surprisingly healthy (not cooked) continental breakfast. The coffee at this Inn is as good as any specialty coffee house I've visited. The label on the coffee carafe said, "Black Swan Roasting Company", and it was superb. This property also has a "Captain's Cabin" wing that's open during the summer for folks on a budget (think $55 for one person, $65 for two persons) - an absolute steal in Anacortes during the summer. We paid $63 on an AARP rate and stayed for three nights. The even have Gilchrist and Soames bath products in their rooms!! For the price, this is one of the best places I've stayed anywhere in the world. You won't be disappointed!
