Stayed here for two nights, and enjoyed how spacious and comfortable their rooms are - complete with sofas, fireplace, balcony and kitchen. The perfect place to relax after a long day sightseeing the beautiful islands. Breakfast is included, albeit reasonable but lacking in fresh products. Hotel wifi is excellent and free, as is free shuttle downtown too. Would stay again.

Easy access to rooms, spacious, quick pickup and drop off from the hotel to Friday harbor and also the airport. Quiet and clean place with nice staff. They have fake fish in their tank made of glass and respect wildlife by doing that. Will for sure stay here again, loved it.

We did not make reservations in advance, as we were visiting out of season. We booked in for two nights, and then changed it to four. This place used to be a senior living facility. Each unit is a suite, with a private patio. The hallways look like an optical illusion, as they zigzag along. Breakfast is provided. And, Mi... More

Relaxation and comfort is our goal and we are so pleased that we were able meet your needs and expectations! The hallways really do give you that optical illusion feel, for it is one of the biggest attractions on the island (haha) Just joking, but it is fun. Thank you for the great review and we hope to see you... More

Because of my irregular sleeping habits we always stay in a suite with a separate bedroom. We shopped high and low for suites in Friday Harbor and booked a getaway for two nights, sight-unseen. This EXCELLENT rating began before we got there, in the outstanding customer service offered on the phone as we made the reservation. The agent accommodated every... More

Called the day before we wanted to arrive. Pleasant and helpful staff booked a pet friendly room with a Military discount. The room is large and comfortable enough. Breakfast is fine and more than ample. Grounds are clean. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi but wished the water pressure in the showers was greater. Overall, we would stay here again though we... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. Spacious in that regard. Slept well, yet I must agree with other reviews about the outdated appearance and appliances. The biggest complaint? The loud refrigerator that rattled, buzzed,and made for constant unpleasant noise. I would have asked for a new room, but we had already settled.

Check in was easy the room was small but had everything we needed and then some (a little Kitchenette was nice). The furniture 100% needs to be updated. It's all old and reminds me of a grandparents house. The breakfast was complimentary and had eggs and potatos! I was pretty excited about that after a week of granola and pastries... More

This hotel is a short walk from downtown and the ferry terminal. The hot tub was nice, and the breakfast in the morning was ok. The cost was a bit steep, but I guess that what the market will bear in the islands. Parking in the parking lot is inadequate and we had to park on the street.

Thank you so much for the review. I am very pleased that you had a good stay at our hotel.

Despite the bad attitude of the front desk staff, the outdated décor and the marginal breakfasts, the hotel provided an excellent value. The price was reasonable, the suite was very spacious with a living room and kitchen and patio, the facility was clean and comfortable, the grounds were pleasant, the parking convenient.
