Stayed here with my family (Two parents and three teenage boys) for a vacation to the San Juans and we couldn't have been happier. Fantastic service, beautiful accommodations, spectacular views, and an extremely convenient location. I hope to return with my own family someday.

Wow! Stayed for the Valentine's Day weekend, and could not have asked for a better experience. Our stay was the perfect winter wonderland--not the snowy kind, but the northwesty kind with unexpected sunshine, blue skies, gorgeous views, and even a pod of orcas on the ferry ride home. The Island Inn at 123 West is a modern hotel with plenty... More

There aren't that many hotels to chose from on the island and this one is likely the best. We opted for a penthouse with a rooftop deck and at just under $300 ($15 to park in the hotel garage) we were slightly disappointed. While everything is new and modern and clean it was just sparse and echoey. There are many... More

So, our trip was last minute - a birthday gift from Jen to me. We arrived on this gem of an island and discovered our original accommodations were less than we'd hoped, so we went back to town. It was late in the day, and we were exhausted. We "stumbled" onto the Island Inn, and had the great fortune of... More

This trip was a Birthday surprise for my wife and also happened to be Jasmine's (our 5 month old) first trip. We were a bit worried at first (especially about Jasmine spending her 1st night away from home), but the staff at the INN made sure that she felt right at home resulting in the trip being a smashing success....

We have stayed here several times and have more stays booked thru the end of this year. We book Euro 4 and love it!

The Island Inn is my favorite hotel in Friday Harbor and one of my favorite of anywhere in the world! It is in an excellent location. Just a short walk from the ferry terminal and literally around the corner from many restaurants and shops. The waterfront is right across the street! The rooms are modern and very clean. Juice, milk,... More

What a unique and sophisticated place to stay. My boyfriend and I came to the island and stayed here, and what a surprise to see that our room looked exactly what was on the website.
