We stayed at the Island Inn with our children. Prior to Friday Harbor we were in Seattle at a fantastic hotel, hard for anything to compare but you know what? We loved the Island Inn just as much. I had exchanged emails with Island Inn before we arrived and was already impressed with their suggestions for excursions and meals. Once... More

The Euro 4 room was spacious, comfortable, and had a fantastic harbor view from the stairway. There are windows in the room so you'll get ample daylight in this modern space. Bathroom tile in the shower is hilarious and the Malin Goetz bath products are such a treat. The staff was personable and helpful with all of our questions. They... More

My 3 star rating is based on what we got for $200 plus per night. We stayed in Euro 2, and this review is limited to those rooms, as the suites may be quite different. First, the staff members from the front desk to the cleaning people were great -- friendly and helpful. They get 5 stars. The place is... More

We read on Facebook that the Inn had last minute cancellations and immediately called to see what was available. Lauren is so helpful and personable and we choose one of the sweets for the night for our anniversary. A few minutes later Lauren called back to say they had upgraded us to Penthouse One...amazing!

Stayed for three nights. Super great friendly staff! Clean rooms. Stayed in the Euro rooms which was a bit strange at first but loved eating breakfast at the table with a view of the harbor. Bed was heavenly.

The room was awesome, well appointed and spectacular views. Bed was so ridiculously comfortable that it was hard to get out of bed in the morning. Softest sheets I've ever slept on. Great products in the bathroom, nice shower, cool towels. My only criticism is that I wish the toilet had been in a separate water closet. Beyond that, it... More

We booked this hotel for one night as we were leaving on a kayaking/ camping trip from Friday Harbor early the next morning. The location is really convenient - a short walk from both the ferry terminal and the meeting point for the many San Juan tour trips that start at Friday Harbor.

We have traveled many times to San Juan Island, and this is our favorite place to stay. My husband and I and another couple rented Penthouse 3, which is extremely comfortable and suitable in size, decor, convenience to the town of Friday Harbor, etc. It feels like a condo (I believe that they were originally built as that); bedrooms and...

Hello irmark, Thanks so much for your visit and for your kind words – we’re flattered to be your favorite spot on San Juan Island! Our building was originally designed and built as a condo project, so all of our Penthouses are indeed outfitted and finished just like residential condominiums with the added value of our friendly and helpful team!...

I have to say this was a wonderful experience and I would absolutely stay here again. We had Penthouse #6 for 2 nights and we could have stayed for weeks.
