From start to finish my husband and I had a wonderful time at the Waterfront Inn. We were greeted immediately by Sue the manager of the Inn. She is warm, helpful and very open to any questions we had. We honestly had no idea this place would be so charming, peaceful and beautifully furnished. All the touches of a home...

We spent a delightful week for our 25th anniversary enjoying scenic and serene Gig Harbor. The Waterfront Inn was the perfect place for us. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The Inn keepers were right there any time we had a question and graciously provided what ever we needed. I was struck by how quiet the harbor was...

The Waterfront Inn was everything we were looking for and MORe! The bed was comfortable, the place was spotless and the view was amazing. The deck over the water was perfect. It is right on the water and is perfect for a romantic getaway. We also loved the hosts. We will be back for sure!

The other recent reviews are spot on. Felt recharged soaking in the fine room and unforgettable view! The innkeepers will offer great service or be invisible if your prefer. A short walk to a good breakfast or dinner restaurants.

This was such a treat....right on the harbor.....rooms are not large but very accomodating....when it's warm you can sit right on the dock watching the boats and birds.... when it's chilly you can open the french doors, turn on the fireplace and spend the evening staring off into "Heaven"....small seal, as well as two bald eagles and a heron kept...

I was one of those who discovered the charming, quaint and post-card worthy Waterfront Inn through the wonderful world of Groupon. I booked a two night stay for the "Boathouse", with a view looking directly out onto the harbor. I have to say, this was exactly what I was looking for and I had a very relaxing stay. Sue and...

Having stayed in Gig Harbor several times before this is my favorite. The location is great as you can walk to some of the places in the Gig Harbor area as this place in on the edge of the north part of the harbor. The Inn is quaint, quiet and very well kept. The innkeepers Sue and Gary are very...

What a lovely place to stay...right on the bay with a gorgeous view just out our door (see my profile photo!). This was a stop-over for us on our way to Leavenworth, but we plan to visit again and stay longer. Especially liked the jacuzzi tub. I believe that Gary & Sue have kayaks to loan...we couldn't take advantage this...

We spent Thanksgiving night here in Gig Harbor at the Waterfront Inn (which I picked based on TA reviews!). Nice small inn right on the harbor. Our room was tiny but comfortable with just one window overlooking the bay. Not much to say- we had a nice night's sleep in a cozy room. We would recommend it.

We had three nights in this lovely inn. The first night we were in the Quartermaster Room upstairs, it is a cute room with lots of character, then the Regatta Room, ground floor, facing the harbour, gorgeous. Gary and Sue (the managers), were really friendly and helpful. We had delicious breakfasts just a short walk down the road at the...
