“Business Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

Every 90 days I go out to Friday Harbor and Orcas Island and work with customers. I have to spend the night because of time constraints with the ferry and scheduling with the people that I meet. The Outlook Inn for me is a wonderful place. it is a home away from home. The rooms have just the right amount of feeling at home and beds are very comfortable. Having a beautiful view to wake up to is very nice. The front desk clerks are very helpful and kind and they always treat me with respect even when I am exhausted and I just want to go to sleep. I would recommend this INN to anybody that travels to the island for a vacation

We stayed in room 43 and loved it. Big, big cozy bed, fireplace and view. What more could you ask for. We will definitely stay there again.

We paid more to get a suite which included a small balcony (holds 2 chairs) overlooking the sound, a gas fireplace, and a whirlpool tub. Used the tub after hiking 7 miles in Moran State Park. Unfortunately for us, the restaurant on site was closed for 2 days so we didn't get to eat breakfast there. We did have dinner the night we arrived. It was quite good. Also, couldn't get the wi-fi to work in our room and the person at the desk had no clue. Prices seem a little high but otherwise, we were pleased with our experience.

Stayed in the newer section next to the "historic" hotel. Had a great room with a mini-balcony looking out on glorious Eastsound and Orcas. Has fridge, microwave, coffee, bathrobes, and a towel warmer.
Breakfast in the New Leaf Cafe was a treat.

Outlook Inn is located right by the bay in the charming little town of Eastsound on Orcas Island. Although the rooms are a little worn, they are spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Outlook Inn's restaurant is truly excellent for both dinner and breakfast, with the menu drawing significantly on the area's seafood and fresh fruit/vegetables. My wife and I would definitely return here.
