“Totally Pathetic”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

I don't normally complain when we are out and out shafted, but on a recent 7 day road trip, this outfit takes the cake. It was late on a Saturday afternoon, and rooms were in short supply all over town, so we took a room in this jewel, out of shear desparation.

It is like walking into the early 60's. $129.00 and only 3 rooms rented when we arrived, which soon changed. We got settled, then took the short drive into the downtown core for dinner. During that time, the ferry to Whitbey Island had mechanical issues and limped back to port. The town is delightful and a perfect tourist trap. Upon our arrival back to our room, the desk clerk(owner?) had raised the nightly rate to $169.00. What a swell guy?

Our toilet plugged up about 6 a.m., my wife was up to her ankles in the shower, and the wi-fi that worked when we went to bed, quit, totally, with no signs of resurrection. This was the worst $129.00 we have ever spent. I had to fix the toilket myself, once the breakfast gal showed up, so I could get a plunger at 7:30 a.m.

Under no circumstances, should this rip-off artist be in the accomodation biz. Patheteic. If I have time, I will go to Mastercard and do whatever I have to, in order to get my money back.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

We made last minute reservations for the Fourth of July. They still had a couple rooms available and met all our requirements (dog friendly and free wifi).

The wifi in our room was not really accessible but probably closer to the office is fine. My husband went outside to use it. We didn't really need it that much anyway.

Anyway, the guy was super friendly and accommodating. The beds were super comfy. The kids loved the pool which was well maintained. They had good soundproofing too- there was this guy outside having a loud conversation for a half hour or so in the evening but when we closed the window we could barely hear him.

Across the street at the intersection light was a little beach where we took the dogs several times to run. When the tide was high it was not much of a beach at all but at low tide it was a nice spot where people were clamming and you could see the ferries coming in and out. We ate once at the 1 2 3 Thai restaurant (walking distance) which had some great reviews for a fast food kind of restaurant. The pad thai was the ketchupy kind but the other dish we got was heavenly- Pad Kra Pao. Looked like a happening little bar over there too called the Pourhouse--neat little outdoor seating area overlooking the beach. We had kids with us so could not check it out.

Room Tip: If wifi is important to you, ask which rooms get better wifi service.

While the only other pool in town had 'issues' and had to be closed indefinitely, Port Townsend Inn opened up their pool and hot tub and made guest passes so locals could continue to swim for family fun or exercise. Their pool is always sparkling clean, and staff is super friendly. I just go to use hot tub to soak my weary bones after a workout, and it is by far the best hot tub in town. It was nice to see kids still get to swim or folks do their morning swim while I pummeled my aches and sore muscles away. Thanks Port Townsend Inn for this lovely community service!

Room Tip: They do have a Jacuzzi room if you are ever looking for more private venue to soak in!

We had a fantastic stay at the Port Townsend Inn and would particularly like to thank some amazing customer service.
Breakfast was also great and reception were really helpful.
If we are in the area again we will definitely be coming back!

This was the perfect place for our first foray to Port Townsend. We will be back, that's for sure and we will always stay at PT Inn. Very clean and love the fact that we were walking distance to the shops and restaurant.

Very friendly lady at front desk who said she was putting us in one of the 'nicer' rooms. Rate was not too expensive however the Inn is rather shabby and the floors were very cold. The room did not smell fresh and had rather a musty odor. We did have free WiFi though and the Inn is conveniently located and does have a great view from up on the hill. Probably would not stay here again.

We had some friends coming from Seattle, and they like things to be special and we wanted to make it a 5 star stay. We called our good friends at Port Townsend Inn, and got an amazing rate. We decided to add extra touches, so had the staff spread rose petals on the bed with a mint on the pillow and an arrangement of flowers. We would have had their favorite wine chilling, but we didn't know when they were arriving,which turned out to be late anyway. You can call ahead and ask the very caring owners or super friendly staff for such touches, for a reasonable fee of course. All it takes is some foresight. They knowledgeable concierge front desk was able to recommend a French bistro that suited our friends sophisticated palate. For Valentines Day, it is a great getaway to get the hot tub room. You can have roses, champagne, chocolates, whatever, and surprise your sweetheart It's a great value, so rather than complain, plan ahead! The people there will bend over backwards to make your stay pleasant and affordable. There is a pool and hot tub for all guests to use, so create your own holiday for family or couples retreat

Room Tip: Hot tub room or king size room, and call ahead to make arrangements rather than making it the last r...
