We stayed in a room with a queen bed and private bath in the two story building. Our room was very clean, nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. The room has a refrigerator but no microwave. A Keurig coffee maker and coffee, tea, etc is also included. We did not use the attached restaurant. The hotel is in the downtown Eastsound...

We've been to Orcas Island a number of times ... but had never stayed overnight. We'd taken a tour of the Outlook Inn during a prior day trip - and decided to stay overnight this time. Our decision was based on a couple of things: location in Eastsound, views from certain rooms, and TA reviews and ratings. Our experience: while...

I absolutely loved my charming room here at the Outlook Inn! After a long few days of travel, to arrive at this most welcoming abode was gratefully comforting and happily soothing. I will, without a doubt, stay here again on any and all of my future trips here to the island.

If you plan to stay in one of the newer buildings, be sure to get a top floor room. There is no sound insulation in the floors and you can hear everything happening overhead. I laid awake for hours listening to (I swear) a herd of elephants. I heard them all come in and walk around and around and around....

The location is convenient to everything in town. We stayed in a suite with a fantastic view of the bay. The room oriented toward the view and was large and comfortable. Loved sitting at the table by the window.

Staff was tremendously friendly. Rooms were clean and well-appointed. I had some wi-fi challenges, but wi-fi shouldn't be a priority at a place like this. Would definitely recommend. Within walking distance of everything. Sadly did not get a chance to experience the restaurant, but smelled amazing!

Great view and great restaurant! Comfortable and relaxing room... and they have the best lotion! Walking distance to all shops in town, even the grocery store. Staff was nice and helpful. Will stay again!

My husband and I visited the Island at my request for one night. I had last visited the island 25 years ago and wanted him to see it, as I feel a real sense of tranquillity here The receptionist was warm and very friendly. When we had booked we had told them it was my 50th birthday and were delighted...

We booked very late for Thanksgiving and found that only rooms with shared baths were available. Our room was directly across from the bathroom and quite accessible. We never had to wait to use the bathroom or shower. The room and bathroom were very clean. Coffee in the lobby was delicious; dinner at New Leaf Cafe superb. Excellent location in...

The Outlook Inn is the perfect get away from Seattle. Suite #51 is GREAT! Awesome most comfortable king size bed, great jet tub, shower and the prettiest of views from the balcony. The New Leaf Cafe is beyond spectacular, the food is scrumptious, the wine selection is fabulous and the service is so detailed and personable. Going to The Outlook...
