Unit 7 has an ideal layout - great room (living, dining, & kitchen areas), master bedroom and bath, guest bathroom, and outdoor seating. A very limited view of the harbor, but who visits Friday Harbor to sit and look out the window? Very helpful staff in all regards.

I stumbled upon The Island Inn while reading an article on "Fantastic places to stay that won't break the bank". The article was "spot on" . We stayed in Penthouse 5, the room, if you could call it that, it is closer to a high end apartment, was very cool. I really can't say enough good things about it. Starting... More

We stayed in Sweet 5 in the back and while it's a climb up the stairs, being in back where its quiet and we had our own little deck was great as well! The location is right in the busy-ness of Friday Harbor so you can access all the restaurants and cafes by foot. I definitely recommend paying for their... More

This establishment is more like condo rental than a true hotel, but it has a lot going for it and we enjoyed our stay while in Friday Harbor. There was a full kitchen and they were kind enough to stock it with a few food items so that we didn't have to run off to the store the moment we... More

Our family of 11 were on a boat trip to celebrate our Mom's 80th birthday. We had a boat in the harbor and needed a close hotel for 3 rooms. 123 West was just about across the street from the marina and totally unique and charming. It is contemporary with many great touches. We had 3 Euro rooms which were... More

This was our first visit to the Island Inn in spite of many visits to Friday Harbor. The accomodations are outstanding--modern, high-end finishes, comfortable furnishings, spacious. I would agree that they could do a little more in term of stock for breakfast items given the priciness. But overall, an excellent addition for Friday Harbor.

We loved this place. Sleek, ultra-modern styling. Wonderful living areas that are shared with a couple of other rooms. They are big enough to have your own space without being heard by others, and can get to know some very interesting and fun people if you choose. Staff was exceptionally helpful, informative and efficient. Outrageous location!!!
