This is the only affordable place on the island where the 4 of us could sleep in one big room and bring our little dog. The pool area is fantastic and we enjoyed it daily. Very clean and pleasant. Room same. Only issue is the walls are thin. Management kindly provided us earplugs without asking.

The Earthbox is a great place to stay while visiting the San Juan Islands. Our family has been back here a handful of times and it's always a great stay. The location is great - just steps away from town and walkable to the ferry dock. The motif is perfect for the island - it's an old motel that's been... More

We wanted to spend a night on the island and found Earthbox Inn & Spa. I was traveling with my 19 year old daughter and her best friend and the room was plenty big for us. Loved having no carpet in the room. I am sure it was an older building, but they did a great job on upkeep. Loved... More

Room was furnished very nicely. It was a lot of nice things in a small space, however. Kinda hard to move around when you got as much stuff as us. :) The staff were friendly. The Spa was amazing. The pool / hot-tub / sauna made things even steamier! We would return!

I loved staying here with my friend and her two pugs. They did charge extra for the dogs, I believe it was only $15 per dog, per night...but that can add up if you're staying for multiple nights. It was very clean and comfortable though. I would definitely stay here again. I did not use any of their spa services.... More

We stayed here during the Friday Harbor Film Festival this month. It is centrally located and has been beautifully updated. Our unit had a small refrigerator and microwave. Laura the owner is delightful. The staff is very friendly as well. Definitely recommend for a weekend getaway.

This place is clean and close to the harbor. The price is a bit high. The place is right in the mix of Friday Harbor which is such a pluss. Don't expect opulence but stay here anyway. The pool is family friendly and the staff is very nice. The rooms are drive up and convenient.

Nice rooms with large HDTV and very comfortable beds. Quiet location with lots of room types to choose. Indoor pool and hot tub was a definite plus.
