I made my reservations for the Friday Harbor House back in March. Upon arrival, they could not locate our reservations due to a "computer glitch". Fortunately, I had in my hand my printed confirmation with dates and room description, which was to be the "Harbor View Room". The lady working the front desk had to locate the manager to get...

I loved the location. It's walking distance to town, shops, restaurants. The staff is wonderful, everyone was very nice and helpful. The restaurant is excellent, we ate there twice in addition to the complimentary breakfast. I highly recommend enjoying a meal or just a drink in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the harbor. Our room was very nice and very clean.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at FHH. We were in a room off the main building, private, quiet, with its own balcony and partial view of the harbor. Staff was helpful and happy (in general) and willing to do what they could to make our stay even better. The rooms are beautiful, and jet tubs very relaxing.... More

The hotel is quite good however, the restaurant is marginal. I live in Friday Harbor so I remember when this was the best restaurant on the Island. After a remodel and change of chef, the food has really gone down hill. A shame but true.

We spent a night at the Friday Harbor House hotel with our 5 week old baby. The rooms are well designed, light and comptemporary in design. The hotel is within walking distance of the ferry, bars and stores in downtown Friday Harbor. There is no need for a vehicle and the hotel makes a great upmarket spot to stay. Would... More

When we arrived I was walking through what appeared to be a meeting room but it was the temporary lobby. The lobby was being renovated and we had to step around workers and materials to get to the elevator for the 2 days we were there. However it was well worth the trouble. We stayed on the 3rd floor with... More

My husband and I visited San Juan Island for 3 days while in Washington on vacation. We chose the Friday Harbor House for its location. We paid a great price booking directly with the hotel; we got a room that had a "partial view" but the tree outside really didn't block anything at all! The room was great and so... More

We first discovered Friday Harbor House in 2006 quite by accident when making a first visit to the Pacific Northwest from Fort Lauderdale for sea kayaking. Fell in love with the hotel, the island and the whole region (so much so my friend moved to Seattle last year!). From the moment we checked in the staff was courteous, knowledgeable and... More

I read on Trip Advisor that this was the best place in Friday Harbor, so this is where we went! The staff was terrific! Helpful & very friendly. We had a lovely view from our window, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, DVD player & fridge.....everything we could have wanted! The free breakfast was lovely & delicious. Just an all-round classy place.
