Spent a few days looking for a nice hotel on the waterfront as a base to explore the south end of Hood Canal. Found the Waterfront and chose it based on the the reviews and photos on their website that appeared to have a great view of the water, which we wanted. We booked the King Suite based on the description of waterfront as well as the photo showing water off the deck. When we arrived, surprised that half the view was blocked by RVs. Manager was very accommodating and willing to move us to a cabin for the 2 nights, but it's view was even worse, plus bed was too close to HWY 101. Ended up back in the original room. Room was very clean and bed comfortable, some noise from the traffic on Hwy 101. Deck would have been a lot nicer to sit on if we didn't have the RVs right in front. The RV parked right in front was worse as they ran their AC all night and day, so quite irritating.
Restaurants and stores are a couple of miles away in Hoodsport and access to Lake Cushman a short drive. Beach was nice, although it is mostly barnacle covered rocks with the south edge the discharge river from the powerplant. Very clear and clean. Overall a good value for the price with nice management, but wouldn't stay here again myself.
