Stayed two nights during my honeymoon. Room was very clean and the staff were professionals. The room was a bit small which was fine except the mattress was terrible. Everything else was good but please put some new mattresses in! My back hurt to the point I was considering sleeping on floor. I would stay here again anytime, if the... More

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time. The inn was just a few blocks up from the docks in Friday Harbor. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They gave us recommendations on restaurants and transportation to get around the island. The rooms were bigger than we thought they would be, and very quiet. We loved... More

Just got back from a couple of days in Friday Harbor. There were 3 of us and we wanted to stay somewhere with a common area for us to relax and visit. The Wind cottage at Earthbox was perfect. On two floors with 2 king size beds, plus a media room, dining/kitchen area, one and one half bath. Only 4... More

Stayed Saturday evening through Tuesday in early May. Delightful facilities and great staff. The pool house was very nice - clean and great hot tub. Free bicycles & helmets for touring around town and the island.

When you first drive up it looks like a motor inn yet, at a second glance it is very, very nice. This hotel has a very calming feeling about it and the remodel is beautiful and comfortable. My room was very, very clean and the front desk staff was very professional and friendly. The TV has some great stations, the... More

We have stayed here a few times over the years and will continue to go back. Easy to find, nothing fancy but clean, walking distance to "downtown" Friday Harbor. We usually take our boat to Friday Harbor leaving us without a car but we can easily get to the places we want to go.

This is a great little place to stay if you want to walk on and off the ferry and want amenities like a spa and pool / hot tub onsite. We like the funky feel of it as well as it a hybrid of motel/hotel. The rooms are very nice and beds very comfy. We also got to ride their... More

We stole the headline from another review. We enjoyed our stay at the Earthbox Inn very much. From Louie greeting us as we came to checkin, to the clean, warm style of our room, to being close to everything, and especially the way they spread out the guests so we didn't disturb each other. Most hotels I stay at will... More
