We were visiting our son in Seattle and he works M-F so we decided to spend a few days at San Juan Island. Unfortunately I let my husband get the hotel....mistake yes it was clean but after seeing advertised queen bed room he paid $50 more for a king He commented that he didn't know how they even got the queen bed in the room that was that small. Generally it kind of had an army barracks look. We left as soon as we could

We loved staying at the Orca Inn -- four of us here. The Orca is clean, reasonable in price, and very comfortable. Doug, Cheryl, and staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this inn to all.

Orca Inn's motto is "Spend a night, not a fortune" fits. Much less than half the going rate in Friday Harbor. All ground floor rooms. Clean. No smoking. No pets. Converted from previous Alaska pipeline housing. Provides needed amenities like mini-fridge, microwave & flatscreen TV. Effective remote controlled heat/AC. What more do you want?

Orca Inn advertises as a cheap hotel on San Juan Island. They were correct. The rooms were so small, two people could not pass each other in the room. In the shower they posted a sign to take a short shower because more hot water would take 20 to 25 minutes to heat for the next person. When they cleaned the room, they took the towels and did not replace them.

Room Tip: Rooms with two beds may have more room.

We chose the Orca Inn based on reviews and its' excellent cost especially for Friday Harbor. The price is good, the rooms are clean, the bed was comfortable. The Inn consists of 5 separate buildings with the ambience of a double wide trailer park. There is no ice machine, no coffee machine, no outside seating area except for 1 plastic table & 3 plastic chairs. Ice can be purchased at the grocery store next door if you get there before it closes at 6:00 p.m. It is not a convenient walk from the ferry as it is several blocks - all uphill; unless you are relatively physically fit AND do not have luggage, don't walk to it. Take a taxi assuming you can find one; the taxi's all seem to also offer tours thus they are not necessarily available for transportation. The two employees we met didn't seem to like their jobs; we were kind of turned around and asked how to get to the main road to walk back to town & the gentleman at the desk didn't really seem to know. I'd recommend biting the bullet, spending 3x a much and staying closer to town or at lodging that provides a shuttle.
