We had a nice room overlooking the water with a fireplace and a small balcony. The price was right and it was a charming place to visit. Loved looking at the boats coming and going. This was very convenient to restaurants and shopping.

We stayed at this property in mid-June. The Island is lovely. We had a great view of the harbor from our first floor room. As the restaurant was closed the night we stayed, we had a picnic dinner on one of the lovely tables provided just outside of our room. The breakfast was very good. The staff was also very... More

We return to Friday Harbor House year after year. It is in a great location, in town with great sweeping views of the harbor, has a free and robust continental breakfast, good dinner menu, and is a short walk from shops and several great restaurants.

This is our second time staying here, and again we thoroughly enjoyed it. I read a few average reviews of FH House, and I can only guess they have this hotel mixed up with another one on the island. Several improvements have occurred since we were there about 3 years ago: the staff is even friendlier than we remember, there... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did have a harbor view which I highly recommend for the experience. We ate dinner on the grass outside 2 nights and enjoyed wine and cheese the 3rd night. The view and cool air are a experience in itself. We found the room fine in all ways. The breakfasts were very good and also... More

This hotel has ONE thing going for it -- and it's the reason I gave it 3 stars and not 1. It's the view. The view is spectacular, and I guess it was really worth the added cost because we were here to see the beauty of these islands. However, it was $350/night for a room with dirty carpet, chipped...

To Sjgjess1, I am so sorry to hear that your room wasn’t up to your expectations. That is very frustrating and for that I am really sorry. We are looking into the areas you mentioned and will work to make improvements. For one, we just replaced the carpet in your room, so that is concerning that it looked dirty. I... More

Thank you so much for the great feedback of Friday Harbor House and The Bluff Restaurant. It's such an amazing time of year and with a view that can't be beat whether in the hotel as a guest or at the restaurant having Happy Hour or dinner out on the Terrace lawn. Please come and see us again soon! Margie... More

We spent 4 nights and five days in the San Juan islands, of the places we stayed this was the most uncomfortable. The staff was friendly, the layout was odd with the check in desk in one location and the rooms in a different place, the parking was limited, and the rooms were clean with a good view. The problems... More

Thank you for your comments regarding Friday Harbor House. I am glad we had a chance to speak about your experience and that we were able to compensate you for the discomfort you had. Street noise is typically not something we hear as a concern from our guests. We would love for you to come back and give us a... More

We stayed at Friday Harbor House during Memorial Day weekend. The views from the water side rooms are among the best on at Friday Harbor. Yet, leaving the door open on the balcony was a quiet experience. What we liked the best was the quality of the service. The staff makes you feel special and across the board and were... More
