“convenient location”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

I recently had to spend a night on Bainbridge Island to pick someone up from the ferry. I chose this property for price, pet friendliness, and location in that order. The price was the least expensive option on the island, it was the only pet friendly choice, and the location was terrific, 3 minutes from the ferry dock, and downtown. That said, the place needs some serious refurbishing. Everything is dated, and not in the greatest condition. My shower leaked onto the floor, and there was a mold problem in the grout around the tub, always nice to see.
The staff was very friendly and helpful with restaurant and visitor suggestions, so that was a plus. The pet rooms are on the ground floor right across from a big green area for their use.
There is a pool, and continental breakfast in the mornings.
I would stay there again for necessity, but would not recommend it as a nice place on the island to vacation.

This is the by far the worst "inn" I have ever seen.I would call this a motel instead. The room smelled like a old person that smoked, the bathroom had mold on the bath tub, the pool was bright green and closed because it just had not been taken care of.staff was nice at first but after I asked Ford my money back they became very rude!

The walls of this more-motel-than-inn are so thin that our neighbors TV kept me up every night I was there. Every car that drive by on SR 305 headed to the ferry sounded like it was detouring through our room. Pool was closed for an entire Saturday in August much to my daughters dismay. Breakfast area seats 10 and people are literally crawling over each other based on the layout of the room. Fantastic location to ferry docks and downtown restaurants - 15 minute walk or short drive. Would try another hotel before I come back.

Quiet location. Conveniently located within walking distance of the ferries. However, it is approximately a 20-minute walk to the ferries but through a nice neighborhood. Staff was friendly and continental breakfast was good. Yes, tight fit in bathroom but it was not a problem.

I wish I could rate this inn higher, but everything in the room was so worn and dingy, and, while the room wasn't dirty, it wasn't sparkling clean, either. The staff were friendly and personable, but at the same price as the Best Western Plus just a block away, there is no way I would select this inn if I had a choice to stay at the Best Western. The "free" breakfast was also of rather poor quality, or, as my husband put it, not worth what we paid for it. The good news about the breakfast, however, is that it motivated us to walk to the Madison Diner, which served a great breakfast! Our room, on the end was quiet, with a separate sitting area and a full kitchen, but this property is in serious need of rehab.

While the on-line pictures and description of this hotel are very appealing, in reality, the property is in very poor condition. One of the dresser drawers of the television stand would not open; the shower curtain liner was filthy; the carpets were worn; the heating/air conditioning unit was very noisy; the safe would not unlock so we could store valuables. The safe door was ajar and would not close, causing my partner, who is very tall, to hit his head on the corner. The sink stopper would not work. We definitely will not stay there again, nor will we recommend it to any one.

This was a last minute arrangement and likely will not return here unless is it the only place with availability. It's a very basic place that's similar to cheapie motels just off the highway. Bare minimum but without the value pricing.

The good - the bed was comfortable. It's close to downtown. The shower works fine. If you simply need a place to sleep for the night, you could do worse. The front desk manager was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the location and how to get around. The iron worked.

The so-so - The included continental breakfast looked ultra basic. Many better options nearby for better food. Why so much brown & tan in the room? For a place that's frequently overcast and gray, why not brighten it up a bit? Why not add some whimsy with local artwork/driftwood or something "island-y"?

The not so great - The room smelled of stale smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. Opening the windows helped. Lighting in the room is poor. Most bulbs were very low-light so forget reading in bed. Overhead light is basic honestly would not want it on unless it absolutely had to be.

The odd - this place seems to be in an office park of sorts.
