Our stay at Friday Harbor House was everything we expected and more! Maybe that sounds cliche, but sometimes when you book a hotel over the internet and view the photos online, you don't always get what you were expecting. Friday Harbor House provided us with a quiet accomodations that spoil your senses. We biked off the ferry and were delighted... More

Excellent view in a quiet harbor. The hotel staff was fabulous and made your feel like you were a regular. Extremely clean and a great room for the price. I highly recommend this. Plus its the only hotel in friday harbor with a view of the water. It was really neat to lay in bed and watch the sea planes,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a third floor room overlooking the harbor that was absolutely wonderful. The staff was fantastic. It was so nice to greet them each morning as we departed off of the elevator. They always had helpful tips of what we might enjoy for the day. The breakfasts were superb -- great homemade granola...

This place is great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The restaurant located within is also a home-run! The clam chowder was the best on the island! The happy hour too is very reasonable and gourmet! The bed was fantastic, as was the fire place, and the overall ambiance made it very difficult to leave. We will be back... More

I have never had such wonderful customer service and attention to detail! During the continental breakfast I asked for a Soymilk alternative for the House granola (which was heavenly!) and found they did not have any on hand. The staff ran to the store and brought it to me before I was able to finish my banana bread! Wonderful service,... More

We stayed at Friday Harbor House for two nights during a winter trip up to the San Juans. It was just what we wanted--a cozy place to relax together while it rained outside. The combination of the jetted tub, the fireplace, and the harbor views was amazing. It was definitely a good value if you are staying in the winter... More

We got married in one of the rooms @ Friday Harbor on 31Dec07 and have spent every Anniversary there since. The rooms are clean, beautiful (especially Harbor side) and comfortable. Breakfast is nice and the New Year's Eve dinner is delicious. This year (2009) the new chef out did himself. The dishes were not only delicious but with beautiful presentation.... More

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful two-night stay at the Friday Harbor House. Having stayed in the past in different guest rooms, for this trip we chose the two-room suite located on the third floor overlooking the town with a partial (though still enjoyable) view of the water. Talk about the perfect romantic getaway for us to... More

A wonderful hotel, situated in the hub of Friday Harbor. Conveniently located, so if you are without a vehicle you can easily walk to the hotel from the ferry. We stayed on the third floor with a delightful view of the harbor. The room was very nice, gas fireplace with a jacuzzi tub, large shower and a small balcony. We... More
