My husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary/honeymoon here in September! We loved it! The owners are so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and we loved eating at the restaurant in the... evenings because it was very quiet and comfortable. Can't wait to go back! See More

You don't even have to bring your car. Just take the Orcas ferry, walk off, and you're already in one of the prettiest places on the island. There's stuff to see, a nice grocery store down the block, ...a restaurant, a bar, cool people to talk to... And no stress! See More

We celebrated our 24th anniversary at Orcas Hotel in a honeymoon suite and our time was perfect. Relaxed time with gorgeous view, excellent food on site, and gracious staff. Perfect getaway with histo...ric furnishings and off the beaten path. Explored the island and then snuggled back in for peaceful evenings. **Keep in mind this is not a Best Western. If you want modern decor and roomy settings, look elsewhere. This beautiful hotel is pretty much how it was in 1904 with upgraded utilities. Not for everyone's taste.** See More

My wife and I went up for just a quick overnight getaway for our anniversary. When we arrived Doug gave us a complimentary upgrade on the room. Doug and his staff could not have been better. The food ...and service at the Cafe and Bistro were great! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and experience at the Orcas Hotel! See More

We got married at the Orcas Hotel 10 years ago on September 16th. Best and most fun day of our life with all of the people we love around us. We rented the whole place so loved ones could enjoy the for a couple of days. The owner Doug was super duper ;) and did everything he could to accommodate us! The food from Octavias Bistro was delicious and beautiful. I wish we could do it all over again ♡ See More

I was there with a friend for dinner. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was excellent. However we were disappointed with the shrimp scampi. We found it rather plain and the the young beet gre...ens kept catching in my throat not making the meal very enjoyable. See More

My husband and I were married here, and one of the best memories of my life was watching the Evergreen State ferry pull in while talking to my mom on the balcony the day before the wedding. See, I was... born on that ferry, and my mom hadn't seen it since those (many!) years ago, as we had left the island shortly after I was born. My mom has since passed away, so I treasure that memory.

My husband and I got married here almost a year and a half ago. It was the best place to get married. Everything from the food to the accommodations was amazing. I wish we could do it again!

I've stayed many times over the years, sleeping under the hand made quilts (made by a local artist by the way).
The Orcas hotel is homey, friendly, very clean and quite handy to the ferrydock and Village.
The restaurant has a tasty menu, and a beautiful old bar.
A great overnight stop if you are touring the islands.

Delicious food! Beautiful experience! Seared ahi tuna appetizer was scrumptious! Pleasant service and great view. Fun place to go have lunch. After lunch take a walk around the grounds. Although I ...did not stay there overnight, I would love to! See More

Best clam chowder I've ever had! And their fish and chips is amazing. Used to take a ferry across just to eat there. And I lived in Everett!
There Be Whales!!!!!

Our southern resident pods aren't seal eaters but the transients that we get through here are! We had whales in front of the hotel 2 days ago but it wasn't quite as dramatic as this!

So this happened today!! Was trying to keep my distance like a good boater, but then a Sea Lion that was escaping from the whales found refuge on the side of th...e boat next to us. Why you guys need to sign the Howe Sound Declaration!
