My BFF's had a great experience staying in Penthouse #6 this past weekend. We walked on the 9am ferry and the Island Inn is literally about a 1-2 minute walk away. The staff was friendly and inviting and our Penthouse was amazing! We were so excited and it was better than the photos! Highlights: fresh fruit, juice in the fridge,... More

I had high expectations of the hotel and they managed to exceed those expectations. They go above and beyond. The island was as expected. Friday harbour and Roche harbour are well worth a visit. The hotel could not have been better. The staff are excellent. Thanks to everyone...

Nice modern average hotel, friendly reception, location good with bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Cool decor, paid parking and good WiFi. Room cleaning was poor though, didn't replenish any of our supplies during our 3 night stay (like milk, juice, granola or towels) and also didn't empty the trash despite it overflowing. When we complained though the receptionist took... More

So much thought had been given to this unique arrangement with units of three bedrooms opening out onto a very spacious and tasteful lounge/eating area with great views. Bedrooms well thought out and very comfortable. Individual spaces in kitchen area providing good coffee and starter breakfast with own fridge. The staff could not have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend... More

This little place was quite a pleasant surprise to us. Loved the tastefully modern style used to decorate this place, and how conveniently located it is in Friday Harbor. All the rooms are located on different levels of the hill, which required walking on stairs with your suitcases and bags in tow.........it is a workout, but the rooms are worth... More

My fiancé and I stayed here in mid-October. Occupancy is low, so if you book the Euro rooms at the beginning of the week, you may get the entire view-share room to yourselves like we did! Way better than the suite itself. The rooms are small and cozy, but you really don't need more than that. We loved the bathrooms.... More
