The location was great and the hotel has a neat appearance. You are just a few feet away from a quaint marina restaurant (Doc's) and a nice coffee shop that opens at 7. We found it inconvenient that there was no coffee maker in the room and that the "lobby" might have coffee sometime after 7 Pacific Time. If you want coffee before 7 you had to walk 10 minutes to the ferry terminal.
You are taking a bit of a chance when you book here because you will pay before you get there and there is no front desk. You are emailed the code to unlock your door. When we arrived, there was an older gentleman guest who seemed to have a problem and was asking me how to get in touch with the staff. A similar situation happened the second day...
The room was very clean and decorated nicely, however, the TV was mounted in an armoire and you could only see the whole screen from one chair - not the bed or couch - pretty lame for a hotel that is owned by an architect.
If you want to visit Bainbridge Island, this is a fine place to stay and unwind. Just remember, you are there for island relaxation - not the room.
