Don't stay in Port Angeles!
Posted Aug 10, 2016
If I could do it again I would stay elsewhere, not just another hotel but another city. We stayed 2 nights in Port Angeles so that we could take the ferry to Victoria, drive Hurricane Ridge, and see Crescent Lake and Lodge. All of the motels in Port Angeles are run down and old. We maybe saw two other options that were a little newer. The whole town is run down and old. They are trying with the downtown area which has some nice restaurants and pubs but the shops close early (by 5 on a Saturday!). Anyway as far as the Days Inn goes... our bathroom smelled like urine and the carpets were nasty. The beds were ok. The breakfast was very limited, toast, oatmeal, waffles, cereal, apples. Not what you usually see at a complimentary breakfast. The waffles were good! The staff was accommodating. Travelocity booked us in a smoking room. I accept some of the blame for that as I should have paid better attention. The kind lady who checked us in offered to change our room the next day but they were booked solid our first night. The smoking room was horrible. If you are traveling to Port Angeles I would recommend staying in Sequim, Victoria, Crescent Lake, or anywhere else nearby. The Lodge at Crescent Lake would be my first choice! If you are taking the ferry to Victoria, stay there. You can't see it all in one day anyway!
