Great, great place. Perfect location. Upon checking in, we were brought to our "penthouse" by a staff member. He showed us around the apartment and explained different things. We were able to ask him many questions about the area and he offered to book us on a whale watching tour the next day. He had us booked within minutes of... More

Hip and modern feel. Excellent service. Ideal location close to everything and a view over the water made it the perfect get-away place. Staff was very helpful and we were able to park indoors which was great!

My husband and I planned a short, over night get away to Friday Harbor.As I was looking on line I found a ton of B&B's. I then, after looking at many picture's, found that we are not really B&B people. I then found Island Inn at 123 West and the first thing that got me was how modern and new... More

I had an evening to spend in Friday Harbor on a weeknight for work. Even with the offseason I was finding the rates a bit daunting for what you get. Thankfully I checked Trip Advisor and found this wonderful hotel. It's location is about as perfect as can be in Friday Harbor, with top notch views of the harbor area... More

After walking off the ferry and into the lobby at the Inn, you are immediately at home. Due to the ferries being off schedule we called ahead to let them know we would be late. Of course, we were told no problem and Misty was kind enough to meet us even though it was after 10pm. Sweet 5 was beyond... More

The experience was fantastic, from booking to check-out. Their web site allows you to not just reserve a space but the specific room you want. I wish this was an industry norm. I booked a package that included Suite 2, the ferry fare, and a reserved parking place. Upon arrival, my name was on a parking spot and we were... More

Probably one of the nicest places we've ever stayed on a short trip away from our Puget Sound home. What makes the place special is the inn's staff. When we arrived, the desk clerk walked up to our room with us and gave us a tour. When a "dead" hair dryer interfered with morning grooming another representative offered to replace... More

Conveniently located a block away from the Ferry Terminal, this awesome INN is very energy efficient, clean, and spa-like without the high rates. We've stayed in the Euros which shared a massive common, living area and kitchen that has a great view of the harbor and ferry line; and also in one of the suites with a deep soaking tub.... More
