We had the pleasure of staying in the Lookout at the Waterfront Inn. If that's the "partial view" I can't wait to go back and stay in a waterfront room because it was just beautiful. Karen was so kind, helpful, and cheery. From the second you walk in to your room you feel at home. Great restaurants within walking distance....

My fiancé and I took a trip to Gig Harbor and booked two nights at the Waterfront Inn because of the positive reviews and the location. From the start, we fell in love with the place. Our door opened right onto the water! Amazing view. The location is close to everything downtown and the suggestions for food from Karen were...

We just spent three nights at this delightful Inn, remodeled from an old house, to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The new owners have updated the rooms and the one we stayed in was very pleasantly decorated and quite comfortable. We were in the Lookout Room on the street level (the other three rooms are down a steep hill) and at...

Disappointed. We were in the "Boathouse" room, one of the 3 recommended waterfront rooms. These 3 rooms were built into a "walkout or daylight" basement. They were pretty much the same and the room sizes were fine. We did not like the fact that the only opening to the outside was a glassed french door (no screen). It did have...

Stay at a chain hotel for $150 or spend a little more for this quaint, comfortable and convenient inn?! Choose the later. Well worth it! Loved the quiet room looking out on the harbor. Extra large bathroom. Coffee in the common room to take out on their expansive dock. I enjoyed the sunrise on the dock as my husband and...

I can't possibly say enough wonderful words to describe the Waterfront Inn!! My family rented all but two rooms for my niece's wedding. Stunning views of the harbor!! Beautiful clean rooms. Walking distance to great restaurants. Hoping to rent all rooms for a family holiday in the future!!! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay!!!

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...
