Tucked on six acres at the top of a hill, the Ship Harbor Inn is just a few minutes from downtown Anacortes. In the newly remodeled lobby, find an espresso counter, bar and bistro. The hotel also offers an expanded continental breakfast with fresh fruit and Belgian waffles. Also find onsite an exercise room, free Wi-Fi, barbecue areas, laundry facilities, extended ferry parking (for walk-on passengers) and cribs and rollaways available on request.
Room options abound, from queen or king rooms to stand-alone cottages with a kitchen. Some rooms include a kitchenette and space for a rollaway bed. Larger families can opt for the King/Queen Apartment with a king bedroom, queen bedroom and full living room, plus kitchen. The Double Queen features two queen beds and private balcony, and the Double Queen, 2 Rooms offers two queen beds separated by a pocket door. All rooms include a microwave, mini-fridge and private balcony or patio.

Sometimes one arrives at a venue and thinks to oneself that perhaps a mistake has been made. I did. I was wrong. A fantastic room, a first for me – a double shower and a Jacuzzi bath in the bedroom. Sounds unusual – it is but great views over the harbour,a limited food menu for an evening snack ( but served with great enthusiasm) as well as an included breakfast make this establishment a place that I heartily recommend.
I wish i had more time to explore this quaint little inn.
Its walkable from the ferry, but if you would rather cab it- call Mike's. He charged me $5
Room entrance is from the outside, not thru a hallway. Outside wall facing the water is mostly windows and glass doors to enjoy the view. Comfortable bed. Small, but cozy room & bathroom.
I would stay here again.
