Used Orcas Hotel for recent wedding where we had two rooms. Rooms were very clean but were more of the bed and breakfast variety - only one of the rooms had a toilet and both rooms had showers down the hall. Also, only one of the rooms had a flat screen. Wonderful view and great food. The salmon was unbelievable...

This is just a charming old hotel. If you are looking for five star renovation, this is probably not for you. It's got some imperfections, but it adds to its charm. It's clean, beds are comfy, staff is nice. And the view is gorgeous!!! We stayed in the Blue Herron room. Overlooked the ferry dock. We had a great time...

My husband and I and another couple stayed at this hotel through a discounted rate purchase for 2 nights' stay, two dinner entrees and daily breakfast. We were more than pleased with our accommodation - our rooms had a shared deck, views of the harbour and front gardens, and huge jacuzzi bathtubs (but no showers). As we're all 'shower people'...

We stayed there two nights, had a good dinner with Washington State wine each night. The staff were very hospitable and the place is in good shape and modern enough while retaining the character of the architecture. The location is right across from the ferry and the grocery store, both very unobtrusive---in fact watching the ferry arrive was fun. We...

Our first time in the San Juan Islands, this was a very nice place to celebrate a birthday. The room, while comfortable, is small, so only one person can sit on a chair if you're not out exploring the island, etc. It's over 100 years old, so expect to hear some floor creaking from your neighbors. We stayed 2 nights...

We stayed for 6 days at the Orcas Hotel. On the 1st night a terrific windstorm hit with horizontal rain and 65 knot winds! So, the window in the bathroom leaked a bit. We told the after hours inn keeper and voila, new room in minutes. All of the rooms are charming. Well furnished and honestly the most comfortable beds...

We stayed at the Orcas Hotel for a night after spending a full day biking on Mt Constitution and hiking Turtleback Mountain. There was a slight hiccup with our room having been given away but the owner was quick to right the wrong with much appreciated apology, reimbursement on rate and a glass of wine in front of the cozy...

We've been to the Orcas Hotel several times using Groupons, and we love the location, the restaurant, and the overall charm. The only reason I'm not giving them full stars is the heating in the room we were in, which is controlled from downstairs and is either stifling or freezing. The staff is pleasant, and it's nice to sit in...

Most people would not even check in if the front desk announced the power was off and not due on until after dark. We aren't most people. We quickly unpacked and headed out for our first time visit to Orcas Island. Due to the season and the weather it was remarkably uncrowded. Found a great lunch at a pub and...

This is our second time on Orcas Island and second time hanging out at the café while we waited for our ferry home. The food and drinks are good, but what made an impression both times was the friendly nature of the staff. This time I also left my favorite scarf and thanks to their lovely staff and I am...
