Our room was on the third floor (top floor) overlooking the marina. We had floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which we immediately opened. Although two rooms on this floor had balconies, ours had only a safety railing--but no problem as we moved the two chairs in the room in front of the open doors to take advantage of the... More

Really close to the ferry dock and downtown. Walk to just about everything, but we had parking as well. Our room on third level had a partial view of the harbor and a small patio to sit on. We had both a shower and a jet tub with a door that opened onto the room. This room had AC so... More

Convenient location w/parking, rooms w/harbor view lovely, others plainer. Rooms, halls, elevator, common areas clean, spacious enough, neutral decor. No A/C in rooms, so much early morning street noise if windows open. Staff very nice. Continental breakfast ok. Local paper available AM. Beautiful view of harbor and neighboring islands from dining room and outside grassy patio.

Friday Harbor House is in an ideal location. Just a couple of blocks from the ferry dock, (would be a little huff if you have heavy luggage but doable) and the downtown area is just down the street. Very walkable little town. We had a harbor view room with a great view of the harbor and the ferry. Would really... More

We were not impressed with the room! We paid $350+ for the room and it looked great online and was not at all like the premium room we paid for! No air conditioning and was on main level so had to leave the doors open to sleep as it was hot in the rooms! No view to speak of because... More

Hello Gerald, In researching I realized your room had been booked by a third party. I wish we had been able to speak to you directly at the time of booking to be able to accommodate your specific needs. Many folks love having the room you were in and we would have been happy to switch it around if there... More

I would recommend this hotel to others. It has nice accommodations, a very good Mexican restaurant and is close to the ferry and downtown. The rooms are nice however there is no air conditioner but it is not needed as at night it got down to 50 degrees.

We LOVED our three nights at the Friday Harbor House. We reserved a balcony room and were rewarded with a breathtaking view of the harbor and, after a brief shower, DOUBLE RAINBOWS! The food, especially at breakfast was also over-the-top.

I stayed at the Friday Harbor House for two nights while visiting San Juan Island. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the ferry dock, and the "downtown" area is literally down the street. I had a "partial view" room, but could have done without the view, given the small park adjacent to the hotel. The view looked... More

This hotel was on a bluff over looking Friday Harbor. It was very nice and the staff was accommodating . We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The food was excellent. Both breakfast and dinner were made from fresh, quality, ingredients. We had a ground floor room that opened onto the outdoor patio of the restaurant. Not very private.... More
