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

don't let the outside fool you. The rooms are very nice and the people there are just as nice. Quiet area and a beautiful view. They like to brag about their coffee. All I can say is get the cappuccino it is as good as they say.

We stayed at the Friday Harbor House one night during the low season in April. The hotel gave us an upgraded room and we loved the views and the hotel room. Looking around the island, I know we chose the right place and location. We especially liked the hot breakfast in the morning. The sausage links & bacon were super... More

Staff: Fabulous, kind, and super, super helpful!!!! I can't say enough. Rooms: Clean, luxurious and comfortable, great mattresses for a good night's sleep. Location: Absolutely the best. You are two blocks fromt he ferry and right downtown so all the shops, restaurants, tours, etc are all an easy walk.

What a lovely hotel. The room we stayed in had a mesmerizing view of the harbor... We really enjoyed watching the ferries coming in at night. The restaurant was incredible as well. I hope to go back some day.

We used to do a lot of boating in Friday Harbor but now we're land locked. We stayed the evening of Valentines day and the management and staff took really good care of us going the extra mile accommodating our needs. We'll be back until we start boating again!

Friday Harbor House is Fabulous! Perched just above the Harbor, it is the ideal location! You can watch the Ferries arrive and depart! The rooms have a fireplace and a beautifully designed jacuzzi tub which allows you to view the harbor while relaxing in the tub!!! At check in, Victoria will be sure to take care that everything is up... More

Checked in and was told we were being given a special discounted price! Sounded great! Then we figured out why. Two flights of stairs up to the room with our luggage and stairway was through back kitchen entrance with smelly garbage sitting around.. not so great. Room and bath were ok but because there is no A/C for the inn,... More
