The movement is going viral! There are so many reasons that booking a reservation directly with the hoteliers is beneficial for them and YOU! Save yourself some time, money and headache by skipping those third party sites and reserving directly with us either by phone or our online system. Need more convincing, check out our list for Five Reasons to #BookDirect! It’s as easy as dialing 360.378.2783.

1. You’ll Save Money

When you book with third party sites like Expedia, Hotels.com, TripAdvisor, etc., you can end up paying hidden fees and commissions associated with a third party involved in your reservations. These can be anywhere from 4% to 15% higher than booking directly with us. Booking directly with the San Juan Island Inn Collection, there are no hidden fees, plus you’ll have real people located right here onsite to help you with anything you need during your booking process (no robots or outsourcing!).

2. Full Access to Accommodation Availability

Because hotels must pay for rooms to be listed on third party sites, not all the 18 rooms on our property will be listed. Usually, only a few will be! This can lead to an unnecessary sense of urgency to book the “last remaining room” without getting the full scope of our accommodation inventory. In fact, the rooms with the highest demand usually aren’t listed on these third party sites anyway! Peruse our accommodation options directly so you’re able to find the perfect fit.

3. You’ll Save Time

As a boutique bed and breakfast property, we pride ourselves on a personal experience. When we are lucky enough to have guests book directly with us, we are able to have one phone call (or email thread) and gather all the information we need so we can truly get to know you! We take copious notes about dietary restrictions, special occasions, kids ages, pets, etc.

4. You’ll Get Exactly What you Want

Maybe a king sized bed and breakfast delivery is absolutely crucial to your vacation happiness. Maybe you just want a small cottage where you and Fido can escape and relax at a good price. Perhaps your husband’s injury requires a ground-level wheelchair accessible room. Fulfilling these requests will be possible by booking directly with our reservation team. We know the property like the back of our hand, and we can ensure every detail aligns with your perfect vacation vision.

5. Our Free Concierge Service

Last but not least, when you book directly with us, we will offer our full concierge service to you at no extra charge (in fact, we might end up saving you money!) We can book your Victoria Clipper ferry, Kenmore Air flight, Bellair Shuttle, etc. to help you get here. Not to mention all the interesting tours and exciting excursions there are on the island! We’ll help you make plans to maximize your time on San Juan Island.
