Historical Traveler Reviews Olympic Lodge Port Angeles
The Best Western Olympic Lodge turned out to be a good choice. The rooms where huge and clean. The hotel was big and clean with nice leather chairs. The breakfast deal was a fantastic bargin and the food was excellent. The staff was friendly and when I asked for recommendations for a place to eat they gave me good advice. This is a great choice if in Port Angeles.
Perfect Hotel in Port Angeles
Stayed here in August 2004 for one night.
The rooms was around 120.- Dollar (Senior rate) which is quite a rate but it is worth it. Very large room, perfectly clean, nice bathroom, very good location, very friendly staff. The breakfast is well above a typical continental breakfast and they have a wide selection to eat from.
Very nice and large pool that is very clean.
The hotel is managed very good.
Great room, low price
We stayed here Thanksgiving week. When I called central reservation they gave me a price for the room. I kept asking if they had anything lower in price, and when I finally said no thanks, the woman said "wait, there is a managers special". We were offered the King standard, facing the golf course for $75 per night. It pays to keep asking "what other discounts do you have?"
The hotel was great. Giant room with a golf course view. Very quiet on the 3rd floor. Bed was wonderful. Great breakfast in a "dinning room". The staff in the dinning area were very friendly. Desk help was helpful, and had menus to let us read from the local restaurants. Very pleasant 3 nights. Would recommend!
Churlish front desk staff
I stayed here with 2 friends in July 2004 and the front desk staff was incredibly diffident and inflexible. They would not honor AAA and charged us $200/night (above their rack rate!)--they even have a sign on their desk that says essentially we can charge whatever rate we want during our "peak season." I've never experienced such a rude front desk in any Best Western before. Everything else was fine, but I'd stay at another place in P.A. before returning to this hotel because it's severely over-priced.
Clean, well kept hotel. It is a mile outside of the town center and port but you need a car to get around Port Angeles anyway. Good value for the money, free breakfast with a selection of items to satisfy the whole family. including make your own waffles & breakfast sandwiches. When booking ask for room on the golf course side of the hotel. I recommend highly.
We were very pleased with this hotel. Nice, clean room. Beautiful lobby and a beautiful view. Great pool and an awesome breakfast. The breakfast staff and the desk staff were excellent. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
Was pleasantly surprised by the hotel, was very solid and reasonable. Could not really hear neighbors down the hallway, which was good. Good working air conditioner. Breakfast was good. The rates were high but it is Port Angeles in the summer, near a national park. The front desk folks are a little rigid, but nothing to stay away for.
Nice place to stay
It was a last minute decision to stay here. The hotel itself is nicely done, with pretty views, and the lobby is cozy with a fireplace, coffee/tea. In the evening there is homemade soup and fresh cookies.
Front desk staff was very nice, and gave us very good advice regarding a restaurant for dinner (Bella Italia - highly recommend). Morning breakfast was described as continental, but it was a really expanded continental (make your own fresh waffles of 3 different flavors, biscuits and gravy, egg McMuffin-type sandwiches, hot oatmeal). Given that it was a Best Western and off-season, the price was a little high ($89/night), but this part of the country seems a bit overpriced in general, so it is consistent with prices in the area. Location-wise it might have been nicer to stay closer to the town, or near the water, but it was convenient enough, and we were quite pleased with our stay.
Decent no service
clean, had a nice small pool.The front desk lacked personable service
A nice surprise
what a pleasant surprise...along with the red lion, the nicest hotel in port angeles (that says something LOL)....nice HUGE room, great lobby and staff....amazing free breakfast - not the bagel and juice type, but full breakfast that they serve till 10am (late for hotels). location is right on the edge of town....get a room facing the golfcourse on the backside....very very quite and peaceful. Nice small pool and hottub, but limited evening hours (the whole town shuts down at 9PM).

We picked up car #3 in Seattle. A Nissan Altima this time. 2.5l engine, reasonably well spec'd, decent pick up - really quite nice and a tremendous contrast to the reviled RV. After collecting the car, we headed to the Bainsbridge Island ferry, and drove around the Olympic Peninsular to Port Angeles, on the north of the coast. It rained. And it …
We had a very good breakfast at the Olympic Lodge and enjoyed the lovely surroundings. In my opinion this was definitely the nicest place we have stayed (by design). After breakfast we headed to the Olympic National Park Visitor Center, where we saw another good film and got oriented to Hurricane Ridge via dioramas, displays, and a movie about the …

And the light along the Hood Canal road was perfect too, later in the afternoon, under low and even overcast. Often the vista included the layered mountains of the far shore, the waterscape, the trees lining the road. And the trees were breathtaking in their variety of species and variety of colouring. And then, a one point - fog or mist or low cloud descended - the tops of the trees were shrouded - I ...

We went back into Port Angeles for lunch at the Crab House and had lunch on the patio overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We could look across the water and see the mountainous coast and snow covered peaks near Victoria British Columbia Canada. Peg had a Dungeness crab salad and I had a crabmeat and cheese sandwich. I don’t recall the type of cheese but I found it too strong for ...

We feasted on ripe blackberries from the adjoining block. I perhaps had a few too many! Also some plums and apples ripening on the ...
