“Fitting”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

A perfect place to stay in La Conner. Hotel is clean and comfy. Rooms are small but functional. I loved the high ceilings and use of original doors, etc. where possible. Price was good because I used a Groupon and we were able to walk just down the street for dinner. Although there is no coffee maker in the room there is coffee or tea available in the lobby.

Room Tip: Not suitable for people with mobility issues as there are several stairs to get up to the rooms.

Nice, clean, and charming. Historic building with handmade antique window trim and baseboards. The town itself is pretty unique. Almost like landing in a whole new palace where buildings are constructed differently and people are all extra friendly.

My husband and I stayed here for our 20th anniversary. We like to adventure out from the big chains and chose this hotel for that reason. It is an older establishment and they really should do another revamp of furnishings, and update their decor. Other than that, they were friendly (but not in your face friendly, which is good). We had a room overlooking the street right in the middle. There was noise from the street but we enjoyed looking out down the street and seeing what people were doing and since it was October, the sunrise and sunset were glorious to look at. The other great thing about this hotel is that it is within walking distance to many of the great restaurants and stores. Would definitely come back here. Would give a better rating, but the price could have been better for such an older place.

We found this hotel with a Groupon. It was a great location in downtown LaConner, within walking distance of everything on first street and the street directly behind it. The hotel itself has about 12 rooms and the story that they print on the flyer inside each room really helps to add to the character of your stay. The service is great (the concierge was very friendly and the place had a lot of charm). The rooms are small (unless you get the spa room), but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. We were disappointed that the hot tub in their cute little courtyard was not working, it would have been romantic. If we had paid full price I don't think we would have thought the room was worth it, but for the groupon price it was great and a unique experience. At that price we would stay there again. Much different than a chain brand hotel.

My family and I wanted a nice mini vacation and decided to go out of the cookie cutter motel box. We reserved 3 rooms at hotel planter to fit our whole family. What a pleasant surprise! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and we all agreed it was a fantastic choice! We will be back.

My son and I had the room with two twin beds (room 9). The mattresses are long overdue to be replaced, but instead have been covered with memory foam that's about 4" deep. Talk about stuck! We barely slept. The beds were also quite squeaky & had cheap linens (my top sheet was marked w/ a medical linen identifier!). The bedspread is the kind from the 70's or 80's that feel like it's about 80% asbestos or something. The room was really stuffy despite wintry weather and the heat not turned on. There's an overhead fan but it only ran while the light was on.

La Conner is a cute town but I wouldn't choose to return to the Planter. I appreciate the major remodel they did back in the 80's, but it's definitely time for another update.

FYI, there are >20 steps so it's not appropriate for folks w/ mobility limitations.

Room Tip: Room 9 faces the courtyard. It's next to the ice machine which was loud really had me worried...

Nice hotel, well situated on the main street, nice clean room with a wonderful bed. Staff were friendly and helpful. The only issue we had was it was a little noisy, from the street in the early morning and from the rooms adjacent to ours. I also heard a chap snoring in the next room !!

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is not overlooking the main street.
