We liked the coffee and cookies that were provided, friendly, staff, removable shower head, refrigerator with freezer and comfortable bed. We didn’t like the flat pillows, the devices falling out of outlets, not enough receptacles, poor lighting, and TV had a non-functioning Roku. The electrical was down, right scary and my husband lost sleep over it worrying about it being a fire hazard.

The staff at the Orca Inn were great, very friendly and helpful. The problem is the building is a former FEMA trailer. The king room doesn’t allow for 2 people to walk past each other, it is so small there is no space. The shower is tiny, not suitable for the average size human.
