Editor’s Review of Olympic Lodge

If you stay at the Olympic Lodge on the east side of Port Angeles, you're just a few minutes' drive from downtown attractions. What you get in return is a spacious room in a quiet location that backs up against a sloped, conifer-dotted golf course with views of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. Although Olympic Lodge is situated just off the town's main thoroughfare (Highway 101) in a commercial area, this local hotel offers anything but a generic experience.

To start, the local staff is friendly and knowledgeable, ready to offer recommendations and insider tips to visitors. Additionally, the lobby, restaurant and pool face the scenery behind the hotel -- the golf course and mountains -- and this orientation gives visitors the effect of
... more tranquil privacy, as well as a flavor of what makes the area uniquely Olympic.

The Northwest-themed lobby is particularly welcoming with oversized leather sofas and chairs, coffee tables, and a large fireplace that burns real logs (winter is cozy here). You'll appreciate the woodwork and box-beam ceiling that, to our family, felt like a nod to the beautiful historic lodges in the Olympic National Park.

Beyond the floor-to-ceiling lobby windows, Northwest-designed alpine rock gardens feature several fountains and other trickling waterways, as well as rocky hardscape lined with native plants, such as vine maple, ferns, and weeping cedar. Take a stroll around the property to admire the landscaping.

An added bonus for families is the outdoor heated pool and hot tub, available year-round. Additionally, Olympic Lodge offers a full service breakfast restaurant and comfortable rooms containing recent updates. The adjacent golf course is open to the public, too.

We booked a room with two queen beds on the third floor (three floors to the hotel) facing the street and parking lot. It's the most economical room, but feels just as quiet as its counterpart, a room with two queen beds and a view of the golf course. Although the street-side rooms don't claim to offer a view, you can see the Strait of Juan de Fuca from here.

The rooms contain two queen beds topped with fluffy white duvets and bed scarves -- new in December 2013 -- as well as a flat-screen HDTV's, a solid-wood armoire with a microwave and mini-fridge, a small table with two chairs, and a desk table with an office chair. All rooms contain 2013 updates, including the TV's, new HD channels and HBO, iPod-docking alarm clocks designed with a phone-charging port, single-cup coffee pot, ice carafes, amenity trays and armoires. The closet located next to the bathroom holds an ironing board, iron and hairdryer. You'll appreciate the extra sink and mirror across from the closet. The full bathroom with a tub and shower features modern tile work and granite countertops with Bath & Body Rain Kissed Leaves shampoo and conditioner.

Other room options include King Rooms with a view, with a king-sized bed and armchair and ottoman, and King Rooms with a patio or two Queen Rooms with a patio. The ground-floor patio rooms allow quick access to the pool without going through the lobby, as well as the opportunity to relax outdoors in a small patio space -- where kids can explore the rock gardens along a paved pathway. The Executive King is a roomier option for families, featuring a king-sized bed and sleeper sofa, available on the third floor with views or on the ground floor with a patio. It doesn't cost much more than a regular patio room. For even more space, the hotel also offers connecting rooms with queen and queen or king and queen configurations, as well as ADA-compliant units. Cribs are available upon request.

Take note of the gorgeous photography in your room and around the hotel. The nature photographs are the work of local artist Ross Hamilton, who has been photographing the Olympic region for 40 years. The waterfalls, rain forest trails and mountain views will give you a taste of what you can experience in Olympic National Park.

Olympic Lodge staff recommend making July or August reservations at least three months in advance, as the hotel is popular during the summer season and the region hosts a variety of festivals, including Sequim's popular Lavender Weekend in July. The shoulder and winter season are more forgiving, but consider booking a month ahead just in case.
