“None better for Hood Canal Diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

Been coming here for years and was certified here. The property is perfect for the diving enthusiast. Quick easy access to the canal, facilities for diving and a laid back atmosphere is what you find. The owner is a great guy and makes great coffee drinks for your morning wake up. Year round diving is great right off the motel with a wide variety of things and life to see at all depths. In the cold months, being able to quickly get back to your room for a warm up is perfect. Close to Hoodsport town center is also a plus. The property is an older one that is well used but for the divers that come here year in and year out it is just what works best. I personally find peace and relaxation here while enjoying a sport that takes away the stresses of everyday life.

Room Tip: I prefer the upstairs units. The waves of the canal can sound like they are too close for comfort e...

A very basic motel located on the water's edge. Quite old and small with simple facilities. The balcony overlooks the water and is great for watching the sunrise over the hills across the bay. We were just passing through, but there are lots of activities in the area.

I stayed here in November 2012 to take a scuba open water class, the closeness of the room to the water helped to alleviate some of my scuba anxiety. Also, between lessons we were able to go to our room and warm up.

The Sunrise Motel is in a great location right on the water in Hoodsport. Do not expect luxury; it is rather funky in decor.

We like to kayak, swim (yes, the water is warmer in this canal), and just sit on the deck eating barbequed oysters fresh out of the water. Sitting in bed looking out across the moonlit canal is why we come here.

Room Tip: Room 10 is at the end on top floor, so has unobstructed view. There is also an apartment with two sm...

We are now entering our 8th year of vacationing in Hoodsport, Washington and staying at the Sunrise Motel. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and the view is spectacular. Thy have all types of activities going on like: fishing, crabing, picking up oysters and cooking them on the spot. This place is people friendly. I look forward every year to our trip to Hoodsport, and staying at the Sunrise Motel. Frank and Sally (owners) are such welcoming people. Staying at the Sunrise Motel is like staying with family.

Room Tip: I have stayed in room 10 for the past 6 years. It is perfect for my wife and I .We have parking righ...

The sign reads "Sunrise Motel and Diving Resort". Maybe it should read "Sunrise Divers Heaven". We booked for two nights but only stayed one. 30 years ago we would have loved this! Great dive camp! Right on the Hood Canal bank, diving classes take place there and while we stayed there, there were crab pots around and equipment for processing your catch. A group BBQ area, boat docks. The people outside were enjoying themselves. But indoor outdoor carpet, and the front bedroom having about 18" clearance to the wall took me aback. As a double queen at $69.50, it's super for two divers! We took the back bedroom, with a door onto the shared balcony. Our sheets were threadbare to a having a hole, I didn't shower there, Vern said the water was good, smallish, but he's 6'3". So, if you're a diver, this is for you. If you're traveling retired you may want to choose another location.

This motel was an overnight stop for us. The best thing about it is the waterfront view from the back (shared) deck. A perfect place to sit and drink a cold beer. The room itself was ok. We had two queen sized beds in a good sized clean room. The bathroom was small and the shower only adequate. It is right on the highway so lots of traffic noise but the traffic was at a minimum overnight. The windows don't open and because of the shared open deck leaving the back door open wasn't an option so it was stuffy and hot for sleeping. There is a coffee maker but no cups and the fridge froze everything. This place could use an update.
