Stayed for a weekend at The Waterstreet Hotel. The rooms have great water or street views. The room we stayed in was nice for the buildings age. This place is a good value in the off season. The only conditions to be prepared for is they don’t have assigned parking for people staying here. If you have a lot of... More

Right next to the water. Easy to park the car downtown and then just walk around the city. Went for a budget, just $55 on a sat in October. Shared bathroom, but the room was hugh -- loved looking out of the window right downtown. The upstairs does have an old, musty smell, but after a couple of minutes I... More

Very reasonably priced rooms. Very clean, comfortable and fun. It's right on the water downtown. It has great ambiance. Feels like a whole big vacation even when I just drive up from Olympia for one night.

I have stated here that I stayed at the Waterstreet Hotel in November 2015. I actually stayed in September 2014 but I'm only just getting around to posting this review now and TripAdvisor doesn't go back that far. So apologies for any confusion. From what I could tell, the Waterstreet offers the best quality $50-$70 per night rooms in town.... More

This hotel is billed as a very nice old, quaint hotel in the heart of downtown Port Townsend. It is in the heart of downtown. It is old. However, it has seen better days. We were in a third floor suite. The rooms were tall and the staircase to the second and then to the third floor was like climbing... More

I often visit Port Townsend during the warm months and have stayed in most of the downtown hotels. The Water Street Hotel is on my short list mainly due to location: on the downtown waterfront overlooking Port Townsend Bay. The exterior of the ND Hill building is looking better than ever (I remember it being really beat during the Town... More

A great experience from start to finish. We were in Suite 1, a huge ground floor room with two queen beds and a (slightly obstructed) view of the water. My husband and 11-year-old said as we entered our room, "Wow! This is a GREAT room!" And it was. Lots of room, and very, very clean. Mary at the front desk... More

This hotel combined old world charm as a three story walk up with panoramic views of Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, Cascade Mountains and downtown Port Townsend. The front desk is efficiently run by kind staff, Mary without a computer. Rated range from $60 with a shared bath to $175 bay view. Baths are simple but rooms are spacious and comfortable.... More

I will definitely stay in this hotel again, if I find myself in Port Townsend. Our room was gorgeous, and very large. The woman who checked us in and out was very nice and friendly. The location was wonderful. I only have two complaints about this hotel. The couple who stayed in the room above ours was embarrassingly loud at... More

We stayed in Room 20. A basic, but very clean room with a queen bed. The ceilings are high and the room was quiet. Check in was quick and the woman at the front desk was professional and efficient. Given our experience it was very difficult to understand the folks who talked about "scary" Mary and room 20.
