Our stay at Friday Harbor house was wonderful! Staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable, and the morning and evening views to the harbor unbelievable. The "Continental" breakfast was much more than that; a hearty meal that was delicious. All in all, a marvelous place to stay.

Very nice property, great location - close to downtown, harbor and had great view as was up on hill. Continental breakfast a little heartier than some with eggs & bacon. A little on the pricey side but good value. Hope to come back with my husband.

Nice place, rooms are very nice and excellent view (with room that has a view) and very clean too. Courteous staff. Within walking distance to the ferry. Rooms are just a bit pricey. Overall great stay.

Everything was absolutely perfect at the Friday Harbor House. The staff, cleanliness, food and view were all exceptional. This hotel looks just like the pictures so you know exactly what you're getting. I wish we could have stayed there longer but it was a perfect getaway to celebrate something so special. I have already been telling everyone how great our... More

We needed a mini vacation, so decided to go to Friday Harbor. We chose the Friday Harbor House. I'm so glad we did. It was top notch right from the check in. We had booked a room with a partial view. But when we arrived we had been upgraded to a full view room, at no cost. And what a... More

When other places are upping their breakfast game, the management here is cutting back. Stupid, plastic garbage-producing Keurigs in the guest rooms now; pre-packaged pre-sweetened instant oats; pre-packaged, pre-sweetened yogurts; muffins from a box, fluffy industrial breads. Things at breakfast used to be hand-made, not over sweet, tasty, with good texture. Now mostly I feel like I'm eating from the... More

Friday Harbor House is a small, friendly, place for a luxurious retreat or just overnight. We enjoyed the service and attention, but the room and view even more! I had no idea breakfast was included so that was a wonderful surprise. Excellent food, beautiful surroundings. We even got to watch a bald eagle while we dined!

We stayed two nights at Friday harbor house in a queen suite harbor view room. It was fabulous! Gorgeous view, quiet, and very comfortable. It was great to unwind from the day in front if our rooms fireplace. Pleasant surprise was finding out complimentary breakfast was included in room rate. Breakfast is served in the bluff restaurant right below our... More

I would like to thank Morgan for checking us in and for all the great information he provided. We signed up for the fantastic presentation by Chef Aaron with his Holiday Appetizers. Everything he made was delicious. Although, Miles makes the best scramble eggs in the whole world. Normally I would never have touched them but the presentation was too... More
