Some friends and I stayed here overnight while visiting San Juan Island for night diving and kayaking. The beds were comfy, the room was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly - plus the price was very reasonable.

The staff is amazingly helpful. I wanted a stress-free weekend and Earthbox delivered! The front desk called me a few days in advance of my stay based on my on-line inquiries and set up a kayak trip and massages. Everything worked like clock-work and I was surprised at how friendly the staff was even after a long tourist Summer season.... More

Great spot to stay. We had 2 nights at the start of august. We arrived late as there were ferry issues and Tory could not have been more helpful in getting us settled. The rooms were very clean and had everything you will need. Staff were helpful with recommendations for the best breakfast cafe. The location was great and only... More

Love love love this place! Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. They offer beach cruiser bikes you can ride around town with. Stores, gift shops and food were all within walking distance as well. The spa was excellent, cant wait to go back!

We stayed 2 nights in the middle of August and had a great stay. The location is excellent as it is a short walk up from the ferry terminal, shopping and restaurants. The property and rooms are nicely kept. We received a nice recommendation for dinner from the man who checked us in and he even called and made a... More

The Earthbox Inn & Spa is in the perfect location in Friday Harbor. It's with in walking distance from the ferry terminal but isn't directly in the thick of things. The rooms are a good size and are clean. The staff went above and beyond service wise. (I also have a soft spot for any place that has good quality... More

Stayed 3 nights, staff was friendly, room was clean, very quite at night. Spring street is right in town, so it is a very easy walk to the harbor and downtown area. We did not use the pool or spa. Parking was a little tight, but adequate. A very nice market right down the street. We would go back.

We started with #1 hotel and grew increasingly more disappointed as we found one after the other were booked to capacity. With a bit of apprehension, we made reservation at literally last space on the island. 'Upscale motor inn' didn't sound so appealing. What a NICE surprise! Clearly, they have done a lot of renovation. The grounds were simply beautiful... More

Hi Kimann 3055, To exceed our guests' expectations is our favorite. Thank you so much. A word about Trip Advisor, who we love, because you can't cheat. All hotels on our beautiful island average 4 stars or more, so you can't really go wrong. We were a little bummed though when we found ourselves #8 of 9 places on the... More

Earthbox Inn & Spa is nice little boutique hotel. Check in was as professional as it gets. The location was good. The rooms were clean and remodeled. I was very impressed with the remodel. We stayed in SunPlace/ 2-queen beds, second level. This was not your typical remodel. The designer/contractor was very creative and has my highest appraisal. This property... More

Hi Prooproo, Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay. Our Water Places are very small. I agree, for a multiple night stay our newly renovated and somewhat bigger Sky Places are much more comfortable. There is an "auto" setting on the A/C and if that is at a certain temperature, the A/C shuts off... More
