we rented one of the penthouses - which was like a studio apartment plus a bedroom - the kitchen area was really well stocked - we were able to cook breakfast every morning we were there - the furniture was modern and a little bit chintzy but the bed was first rate and it was very quiet (being there in...

Ok so I booked my stay here because it was well-reviewed and I wanted something relatively nice for a single overnight to celebrate my ten year anniversary. The hotel is more like a bunch of apartments (very modern and well designed) in the middle of all that Friday Harbor has to offer. Note that parking is a small extra charge... More

A large group of us decided that we wanted somewhere different to bring in the New Year and Friday Harbor won the toss. There was no toss as to where to stay, The Island Inn was the only choice. Being that my husband, another couple, and I had just stayed there in October, we knew we wanted to invite others... More

This was probably the most memorable hotel I have stayed in and I've stayed in a lot of hotels! They did not miss one mark. From the heated floors in the bathroom to the complimentary fresh fruit and the softest sheets on earth, it was wonderful! The staff is great too! Also, you're right in the hub, the town is... More

We stayed in Penthouse #2 and I have to say, the entire place is a treat for the senses. From the crisp modern decor and architecture, to the staff friendliness and funkiness, this place is different in an awesome way. While friday harbor is cool, our stay was mostly indoors playing winter games in front of the fire and cooking... More

I have to say that this is one of the nicest places we've ever stayed at. Once my Bf told them I'm disabled and the stairs would be hard on me they upgraded our euro to a penthouse that had zero stairs and a disable parking spot right out the door. Will be staying here again on our next visit.... More

These folks have expert minds when it comes to running a hotel. I wish I could write a lengthy review that would encompass all that I loved about this hotel, but frankly I'm drafting this on an iPhone 5. We stayed in Penthouse 6 from September 22-25. It was fabulous and to say it was well appointed would be an... More

Fortunately for me, our stay was a single night. And while I have to admit the room was smartly appointed, it was also regrettably sterile. Two smallish windows afforded us very limited outside views. One of those windows looked directly into a common room. So, privacy or at least the sense of privacy was absent. Staff was pleasant, but, upon... More
