“Lost reservation, really bad breakfast”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We got mild apologies when we arrived at the Coupeville Inn and found they had no record of our reservation, but nothing else. No offer of a discount or any other compensation for their error. In the end, we took the non-view room they offered as a substitute only because it was late and we knew all better alternatives were fully booked (we had tried them before making our reservation at Coupeville Inn).

The room itself was ok. Comfortable, but nothing special. The breakfast, on the other hand, was very disappointing: very poor quality muffins and breads, and watery juice. The worst, though, was the canned fruit cocktail offered at the height of fruit season. It was all so unappetizing that we had tea and coffee but went elsewhere for our breakfast.

I enjoyed staying here. Complimentary breakfast has a good selection of teas, and good food choices ( fruit, eggs). Very clean place. I would stay here again. The hotel is within walking distance of 2 excellent restaurants. Staff is very friendly.

WE like this hotel for its wonderful location, just a couple of blocks from the popular pier and the charming main street of downtown Coupeville. The rooms are spacious, have mini fridges, and rather homey decor. It is casual and pleasant and suits the locale fine. Each room has a little balcony. We debated the view rooms, but the extra $40/night seemed steep just to enjoy the water/town vista from our room, especially considering it isn't a make or break it kind of view as it is still two blocks from the water. The upcharge would pay for the drinks a person could order on the Pier or at Front Street Grill, where you can actually be on top of the water! We ended up sitting on the public balcony (moved our plastic chairs from our own balcony) at the end of the hall that provided the same view as the view rooms, and enjoyed the wine we brought with us.Bathroom was reasonably large and the shower was good. We skip breakfast here, but I saw the usual assortment of bread and muffin. There were either hard boiled eggs or a poach it yourself option. Didnt look like anything special. Hotel felt empty on monday and Tuesday nights and was very quiet, but I understand it is sold out for the weekends.

Room Tip: there are end rooms toward the water that would mean one less neighbor I suppose, but it isnt the ki...

We stayed in a room with 2 beds for one night. Location is great.. Two minutes to the Main Street. Service was ok.. Friendly enough but the main desk does not seem to be manned very well. Overall I would recommend it as a convenient spot in the area..

The Coupeville area has a wide variety of B & Bs and vacation rentals. The Coupeville Inn is the only hotel in this popular tourist spot so technically it doesn't have to be anything special. We have stayed there on several occasions. It is located walking close to everything in this popular two street, quaint tourist spot. The rooms are on the neat but on the small side; the place is a bit dated but comfortable, clean, & quiet. They have an average breakfast buffet and functional
Wi Fi. There is no air conditioning but given the mild climate AC is usually not needed. One of my favorite things about the hotel is the many great historical photos the line the hallways. We go to Coupleville pretty frequently & when we want to keep it simple & relatively inexpensive this is where we stay. A bonus is that they have a couple 1st floor pet friendly rooms.

We spent just one night at the Coupeville inn but were quite impressed with this inn. The room was spacious, the bed was quite comfortable, the breakfast was light but adequate and our dog was also welcomed at the inn. The location is very good as you are just a couple of blocks from the waterfront and the pier. We enjoyed walking around the little town and found that it also had some great places to eat.

Room Tip: If you do travel with a pet your room will be on the ground floor so not much of a view.

We stayed at the Coupeville Inn after a family reunion in Port Townsend. We had a room with 2 beds. The bedding was very nice, and the beds were quite comfy! The furniture was modern, and our room was as clean as it could be. The bathroom sparkled, and had over-sized towels, and beautiful tile! There was a mini fridge in the closet with soft drinks and water to purchase for a very reasonable amount! They had complimentary coffee and tea in an antique buffet in the hallway. I thought this was a very nice touch. There is an inviting lobby with a computer and a fireplace. They even had a book with all the menus from the different restaurants for you to look over! There wasn't a pool, but that was no problem, as the inn was next door to a great museum on the area! We were within easy walking distance to the water front, shops, restaurants, and all the sights. The breakfast was good as well. We will stay there again!
