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

Hello Kathy B, We appreciate your visit and the time that you’ve taken to share your experience with us! We’re delighted that you found us to be a pleasant surprise and that you enjoyed your visit.

We have been frequent visitors to San Juan Island visiting family. We had long been interested in staying at this place, and finally had an opportunity to do so. We love the modern design of the place. We stayed here for a weekend with my kids (1 and 6), and my in-laws with their dog. The suite was perfect for... 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

Hello DexAloha, We appreciate your visit and are happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! We’re also thrilled that enjoyed the View Share space! It’s directly connected to three Euro guestrooms so having it all to yourself is not very common, but as you noted, possible during low-occupancy nights throughout the winter. We appreciate your recommendation and... More

We recently stayed here for one night with my husband, son, mother and dog so we booked the two bedroom penthouse pet friendly room.....Wow! It was absolutely gorgeous. From our fancy kitchen to the steam shower, we were surprised at every little detail. They had a food bowl, towel, blankets and treats for our dog. We watched the Seahawks game... More

Exactly as the script reads. Nothing less than brilliant room, ambience and views. It is pricey but value was delivered by good service, beautiful room and carefully constructed ambience. Nothing better than looking towards Friday Harbour as settling in.

This unique hotel is done in the "Euro Industrial" style, very contemparary, has a perfect location overlooking the harbor where the ferryboats dock and the private boats are moored and the best restaurants are just a block or two away. But the thing that impressed us the most were the little luxuries that were ours, a bowl full of fresh... More

Great place - well decorated in a modern/contemporary way. Location is also great - right on the harbor with great views. Staff was friendly and helpful. If it's available, pay for the parking garage - parking in Friday Harbor is a bit of a challenge otherwise.

Experience coming to this hotel is one of the best you can get from the industry. There is nothing better than the location which is right off the pier and facing the water. You can stand outside the hotel to see who is on the ferry and literally walk to the ferry. From personalizing the parking space to have our... More
