We have stayed there twice and will be frequent guests in the future. The view of the harbor is incredible, the owners polite and accommodating, and the location can't be beat. You will be within walking distance of fine restaurants, art galleries, and many beautiful boats and yachts.

This inn is right on the water at a beautiful location. Our room door opened to the view that we could see even lying in bed. They have their own dock which made it very easy for us to launch our kayaks. The owners were very accommodating to our needs and even held a little 4th of July party on...

As visitors to Gig Harbour from Australia, the Waterfront Inn provided us with a lovely maritime interlude. We stayed in the Boathouse Room and loved the views, comfort, lovely deck and the opportunity to kayak in one of the Inn's kayaks around the harbour. Plenty of dining and breakfast options in the village and plenty of out door seating options...

Often when you see a property called "Waterfront," it just offers a view of water from afar. Not the Waterfront Inn at Gig Harbor! We stayed in the Regatta room, and it's right on the water. You walk out your front door, across a little lawn with flower beds, and there's a lovely pier that stretches out across the water....

The room was nice. We stayed on the ground floor and the view was amazing! My husband and I frequently stay at these types of inns/B and B's and were a bit disappointed in a few things. For the price we paid (in the off season!), I was expecting some nice toiletries (I've had better at the Holiday Inn) and...

Overall this was a great place. Clean, high quality sheets and towels (though you only get two), comfortable room. We stayed in a room with a fireplace and jacuzzi bath. The biggest drawback for us was that we paid more for this feature yet weren't able to enjoy it. The first night because the drain was complicated and we had...

What a lovely place! Pure by chance we found this very charming Inn in the absolute ideal location. We were greeted, first by e-mail and later in person, by Karen who was very nice and helpful. The Inn itself, an old family home is full of atmosphere and charm. The rooms are nice and spacious and the beds are comfortable....

My husband and I spent two nights here last year. We felt it deserved another visit exactly one year later! Karen, the new inn keeper is an absolute delight! We enjoyed chatting with her and learning more about Gig Harbor! She was very responsive to our few concerns! We had the same room as last.....the Boathouse, which is one of...

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Waterfront Inn and Gig Harbor. It was simply wonderful. We stayed in the room called 'Lookout', but we got to see three other rooms in the Inn. All were lovely. Lookout has a very comfortable king bed and several windows, one of which faces the water. We ran the air conditioner...

I thought this was somewhat expensive at $169 a night but it was summer and Gig Harbor is a great town to roam around in. I had the Quartermaster room with a partial (on the plus side of partial) harbor view that was clean, quaint and quite adequate. The room had a coffee maker and refrigerator. Anthony's Home Port (best...
