The Tides Inn & Suites

1807 Water St. (Washington St.) Port Townsend WA

A nice motel with a picture-perfect past.

The Tides Inn & Suites

This property achieved prominence as a shooting location in An Officer and A Gentleman. It's the motel where Richard Gere and Debra Winger had their romantic trysts. Once down-at-the-heel, it has spruced itself up by adding a new wing with nicer rooms. Even the old lobby where Gere’s friend swallowed an engagement ring has been closed in favor of a spiffy new front desk. Rooms in the new wing are spacious, with sitting areas, fireplaces, in-room Jacuzzi tubs and decks overlooking Port Townsend Bay. The reproduction Italian furniture makes it seem as if the motel is trying too hard to overcome a somewhat shabby past, but accommodations are quite nice, overall. The exterior of the old wing hasn't changed much, and the older, smaller rooms have the standard accouterments. If you're a die-hard movie fan, you may want to check into The Officer and a Gentleman Suite.
