My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our long road trip in western North America. We paid $200 per night and found it a good value.
The location of the inn is amazingly scenic! Long rows of gorgeous lavender framed with white fences – and the inn itself is a beautiful building! The front yard looks at the mountains over pretty fields; the back yard looks over the water from a cliff! The location is also perfect for visiting the Olympic Peninsula. About 10 minute drive from Port Angeles downtown (Which is nothing to speak of, really – just a place to grab a bite. After seeing it I’m glad we didn’t stay in town.), about 20 min to the entrance for Hurricane Ridge, and about 2hrs to the Hoh Rainforest/beaches (all highly recommended, but especially Hurricane Hill – see my trip report!)
Our room (Surveyor's Retreat) was spotlessly clean and very comfortable/cozy. We loved the thoughtful “extras” – all-weather fireplace, air-jet tub and bubble bath (which was a wonderful experience!), great shower with excellent pressure, little candy dish, etc. The other amenities were nice as well – free parking, free wifi, library with multiple books and videos… and breakfast!! Oh my, the breakfasts were delicious! Blueberry lavender scones, baked eggs, melon soup, biscuits – I could go on and on. There wasn’t anything at the table we didn’t enjoy and my husband can be a picky eater at times. It was served on the glass-enclosed portico overlooking the water - what a great start to each day!
The host/hostess of the inn were wonderful. Janet welcomed us warmly when we had to knock on the door early to use the bathroom (we were about an hour too early for check in) and was willing to put us in our room right away – something I did not expect after reading some previous reviews. She was extremely hospitable during breakfast each morning, but unobtrusive. She made calls for us regarding our ferry, and even met us at 6:30am the morning of our departure with a really delicious and well thought-out breakfast to go (egg burrito, fruit, can of apple juice, biscotti, some type of oatmeal/cranberry cookie, yogurt – even a mint!). We couldn’t say enough about the friendly/helpful atmosphere.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the George Washington – relaxing, fun, delicious, beautiful! We would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone, and would love to go back ourselves one day!
