We stayed last weekend at the Earthbox and loved it. We stayed in a Sky Place room and it was more than enough space for the 2 of us. The bed was very comfortable! The only reason we don't give it a 5, is that because it is a remodeled/updated space, the floors are a little creaky. This did not... More

The guy at the check in was AWESOME! He quickly switched out our TV for a newer one and brought us his DVD player so we could watch a movie we rented. Also, I suffer from chronic migraines and woke up with a huge headache at 4 am and he gave us ibuprofen because none of the shops are open... More

After hearing some mixed reviews and considering that we were looking for a nicer place, we were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Of course, the facility has been recently and completely remodeled from its original structure as a motor-inn. Our room was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, and tastefully decorated. The beds had nice linens and comfortable mattresses, and each queen... More

Wish we had more than an overnight to stay here. The room was equipped with essentials we typically need for a multi-day stay: good-sized mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tv, dresser and desk. I'm used to reviewing rooms of similar size, but older and with fewer basics, thus I'm glad to report that our room at Earthbox also had an... More

We had a great time at the Earthbox Inn and Spa- we stayed for 2 nights (Thursday/Friday) and the place was great. We were a little apprehensive when we saw they had provided two sets of earplugs but we never needed them during our stay. The room gave us plenty of comfort and room for our stuff- we loved the...

The front desk person was very friendly and helpful. I had originally called to book a room at the Bird Rock hotel, but when we went to the Black Bird, no one was there.

It was a old 70s motel redone as a nice boutique hotel spa. The service was great and we really enjoyed using their townie bikes to explore Friday Harbor. The rooms were fine and the hotel was environmentally conscious. We did dip into the pool which was outside and well maintained.
