“good, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

I am currently staying here, second floor std king room facing the back...finishing a 2 week job here in town.

The good:

Front desk seems attentive, room is spacious, relatively new, bed is okay.
2nd flr back view is of a golf course. I think the 3rd flr view is better for the mountains.
There is a restaurant on site, but did not try it.
And they have a large lobby with a fireplace, leather chairs, etc. if you like that sort of thing.
A PC desktop computer for guests to use the internet is in the lobby.

The not so good:

It is 2 miles to downtown central Port Angeles, so if you want to explore downtown, plan on a long walk or a short drive.
There is no newspaper available in/at the hotel, local or otherwise.
There is no guest laundry on site.
In my room, the TV is an older tube type, not HD, not flat screen.
The WIFI internet has issues from my room. Often the connection gets bogged down, websites fail to connect, have to retry to get them to connect.
There is a swimming pool (heated) but be aware... it is outdoors.

Room Tip: If you can afford the 3rd floor rooms they would probably be better.

Thank you so much for sharing your review of our property! However, I couldn't help but notice an inaccuracy: we do offer complimentary USA Today newspapers every week day, and we have the local Peninsula Daily News available from a vending machine on property as well. Our property is located adjacent to the Port Angeles Golf Course, next door to local shopping and a short walk to several other local restaurants (but of course, we recommend our own on-site bistro for breakfast and dinner, offering a full bar!). Thanks again for providing your feedback, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay with us!

This was our second stay at the Olympic Lodge and it was just as great as we remembered it from 2+ years ago.

Large comfortable King room on the second floor, facing the golf course. Very quiet, nice view, internet access, large TV - good restaurants nearby, and downtown shopping area is no more then 5-10 minutes away by car. We aren't used to cable at home so it was a treat, even if it was so-called "basic", as described by some.

Every single staff member we encountered was friendly and we were greeted every time we were entering or leaving the hotel. The advice they offered for day trips was appreciated, and those recommended trips we went on both times we've stayed at the Olympic Lodge have worked out very well.

While we didn't have the opporunity to check out the Bistro, we are looking forward to trying it the next time we visit.

Spouse, who travels every couple of weeks year-round for business, was so comfortable that he wanted to know what kind of mattress the hotel buys - he wants one of them at home! I also travel several times a year for business, and find the accomondations better than most - even the Hilton.

This trip was a vacation and to visit friends nearby - comments on the advice from staff on things to see, are above.

Service and convenience far exceed that that I've experienced in most hotels - and that includes a Hilton.

We WILL be back!

Stayed here for 2 nights while day-hiking in the Olympics. The room was spotless and the employees were very friendly. The lounge area is beautiful and we had a room overlooking the golf course. The hotel was very quiet and we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub. The room was very affordable and there was ample parking. The only drawback was that the Bistro downstairs did not offer room service, but otherwise, it was a great stay. Mini fridge and microwave in the room too!

Just checked into the Olympic Lodge and decided to try the new Bistro resteraunt on site....wow we were not prepared for such a wonderful meal! Just opened last week, the chef came by to chat as we were trying to devour the last bites of our huge dinner.... All local and fresh, the meal was fantastic.

We both ordered the Filetto Di Maiale ....pork tenderloin with carmalized apple, sage, and veal Demi-glacé....topped off with best scalloped potatoes I have had in years..and a side of steamed fresh vegetables.... A nice wine list helped round off a meal that was delicous, as well as extremely generous in portion sizing..... How wonderful to find such a great gem inside the hotel...we are looking forward to breakfast...if we are hungry again by then!

As always the Olympic Lodge is a great place to stay...we continue to enjoy their great staff, and comfortable rooms. Now with the new Bistro on site, we will never try anywhere else on the Peninsula.

Room Tip: Love rooms overlooking golf course

I wish I would've stayed here sooner. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. I have driven by this place several times but thought it would be too noisy because of its location however that was not the case. Other hotels in Port Angeles have better views of the water and are closer to downtown restaurants, but the actual room amenities can leave something to be desired. So, if the quality of your actual room is what you are prioritizing then Olympic Lodge is a great choice.
