We stayed in the Yakima Suite with wonderful views of Friday Harbors. On a clear day you can see the ferries come and go and the sea planes take off and land. A cloudy day you can zen watching the ferries appear and disappear in the fog. Perfect setting for walking to everything in Friday harbor (kayaking, whale watching, restaurants).... More

I believe that this review applies to the Friday Harbor House, not the Friday Harbor Suites. We do not have water views from our location. I am glad you enjoyed the hotel; they do a very nice job there. More

When we arrived after a 2 day travel from Florida, there was a problem with our reservations. My wife, being a former travel agent before internet, was understandably distraught. The manager, Thane, immediately appeared and said he would work it out. In the space of 15 minutes, he did. Not exactly the same room type, but just as good. We... More

We were at first a bit leery of booking this hotel, because it was the only one available over the Labor Day weekend. There were a few so-so reviews, but as it turns out we needn't have worried. This is a very nice suites Hotel. We booked a queen's one bedroom suite, for two adult couples. It worked out very... More

Thank you so much for the review! I really enjoyed meeting you and would love to have you come back ! Thanks for being flexible at check in and allowing me to work out a solution.

We booked a one bedroom queen unit with a queen pullout sofa. A bit dated but really clean and very friendly staff. The breakfast was free and had 'make your on waffles' and potatoes with sausages, yogurt and cereals. Great value. It was walking distance to downtown but they did offer a free shuttle.

We decided to travel to the San Juan Islands only a week before we actually left, and since August is the height of the tourist season, our lodging choices were pretty limited. Based on the mixed reviews of this hotel, I was not sure what to expect and accordingly my expectations were pretty low. Surprisingly, this hotel turned out to... More

Stayed here with some friends overnight. Was $300 for a one bedroom suite. Everything was OK, but our room was strangely decorated in 1980's fashion, and smelled a little damp. The fireplace was a little gas stove which did not work. No wifi, so when we went out, we left the windows open. Came back and it was cold. The... More

While it may not be a fancy hotel and it is not located on the water, Friday Harbor Suites worked out well for our family of four adults. The two bedroom suite has two actual bedrooms with doors; one has the bathroom en suite, the other with a full bathroom just across from the room. There is also a couch... More

The hotel is well maintained. Our room was huge. It had a kitchen(only microwave), dining table, small refrigerator, couch, large TV on a swivel, and a decent bathroom. Our room was on the ground floor so there was a small patio outside where you could sit. The room was quiet at night except I could occasionally hear the people on... More
