The rooms are very nice with a beautiful view. Luckily on our second day the weather was beautiful, a short drive into Eastsound for shopping and lunch. Wonderful shops and restaurants. While Rosario's is in the process of refurbishing the outdoor pool the grounds were pretty. We enjoyed two dinners at the Moran Mansion restaurant and lounge the food and service were excellent and we enjoyed live music during our second night of dining. We toured the Moran Mansion museum which was very interesting and insightful about the Moran family, the different houses and buildings at the resort. Would have loved to stay longer and visit Moran State Park, taken a whale watching tour and discovered more of the island. Every evening and morning the young deer would feed off the ground under our patio deck. Was a fun and relaxing mini vacation and can't wait to visit again and would stay at Rosario's again.

The Resort is beautiful. The island is very, very peaceful and a wonderful getaway if you just want to relax, have not much to do and de-stress. The food in the Resort was amazing. The view from the room absolutely beautiful. Deer wandering around and little waterfalls when you go out and stroll or walk along the sound. Not a lot of shore to walk, but nice to be by the water (which is very clear). The ferry ride was fun getting there from Anacortes. A great 2 night stay with my husband. Rooms are a little dated, but very comfortable.

Room Tip: Bay side rooms! Nice deck to and watch the bay & admire the view of Rosario Resort.

Had a fabulous 3 day stay at Rosario! The resort is a 20 min drive from the ferry, and yes you need a car when visiting Orcas island. All hotel rooms overlook a beautiful tranquil bay, are tastefully decorated and spacious.The staff were helpful and friendly; we would get great advice on our activities around the island.

We were excited to come to Orcas Island, and were hoping to have a kitchen to prepare my daughter's delicate meal needs. The kitchen was grossly outdated- we were in 2400 building- with stoves circa 1970s, that took twice as long and twice as high settings to cook anything. If you plan to cook anything in that building- don't, you'll just be wasting your time. There might be nicer buildings, but on the flip side, you can't actually walk from the lodging buildings to the main building as the hills are too steep!

Secondly, the rooms (and I looked at a couple!) were terribly out-dated. They were clean, I will say, but somewhat un-exciting decor. The walls were also PAPER THIN and had to complain to get the upstairs neighbor to stop watching TV. The bed was comfy. There also seemed to be some sketchy types-- someone was smoking pot above us, which left an unpleasant odor lingering in the hallways.

What was odd is that it seemed completely empty, and yet, there were very limited other rooms we could even switch to!

Spa was nice-- although awkward, as showers in basement, but massage rooms upstairs, so was walking around through restaurant waiting clientele in a bathrobe.

We considering leaving early, but since it was beautiful weather, we stayed, and I just put on my noise machine and earplugs!

Next time, we will visit the lodge but likely stay elsewhere.

Dear pc_seattle, Thank you for taking the time to write of your experience, and I apologize that your visit did not live up to your expectations. Unfortunately we have no control of our guests smoking, although we clearly identify our policy as a non-smoking resort, both during booking and with an in-room notice. We do attempt to identify smokers when made aware of them and charge them a substantial cleaning fee, which all guests agree to at check-in. The kitchen unit you were in was built in the 80’s, and although it has older appliances, they should work properly and I apologize yours obviously was in need of maintenance. If you would please contact me I would love to find out what your room number was so that we can correct the stove situation. I would also like to further discuss your stay with us as it was unfortunately not the experience we wish for our guests.
