If your looking for a fun getaway adventure in the great northwest, I highly recommend a visit to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. This adventure starts with a two hour drive from Seattle to Anacortes dock and a one hour ferry ride that drops you off within a short walking distance to the Inn, so no need to bring... More

Well we finally scattered my sons ashes, SSG MATTHEW T CUNNINGHAM over the beautiful waters of Friday harbor. This was a wish of his along with the stay at the ISLAND INN AT 123.

We are experienced travelers and have stayed in some beautiful hotels. None matches the comfort, location, and staff of The Island Inn. Before we even made our reservation, we had many questions about the island and the logistics of getting there. We randomly called this hotel and Theo spent 45 minutes answering all of our questions and offering advice. I... More

As another reviewer also noted,,,beds are less than optimal,,,hard to get a good night's sleep,,,woke up early with back ache both mornings of our stay. Owners need to invest in better quality mattresses for this price level. Recently stayed in pricey downtown SF for a little less,,,and was able to get a good night's rest each night for a week!...

Chose this hotel because of the high rating on tripadvisor and King size bed. On the positive side, the staff is helpful, the facility is clean and new looking with a spacious bedroom and bathroom and they supply quality shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. They also have several amenities like a coffee maker, a safe, a fridge, a couple of robes,... More

We are so happy that we chose to stay at The Island Inn for our first Friday Harbor experience. We drove off the ferry, hung a right, and pulled into the inn's parking garage a couple hundred yards later, where we discovered a VIP parking slot with our last name. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable, decorated in unfussy,... More

A lot of thought has gone into the design and amenities. On arrival, we found our own VIP parking spot with my name on it. Our "sweet" was spacious and immediately relaxing.
