We recently traveled to Friday harbor with friends for a weekend and prior to booking our stay we read several of the reviews on TripAdvisor for hotels. We decided on Discovery Inn after reading the reviews of the hotels in the area and we were not disappointed. The rooms are nicely furnished with everything you will need such as coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, etc. The bathrooms are well appointed and clean with plenty of towels, The staff was very helpful with recommendations for meals and when we mentioned the deck in front of the ice machine room was slippery from rain she (sorry we forgot her name) put sand on the deck within minutes.
You may have a 2 to 3 minute drive to the ferry but we all felt the location was just far enough removed from downtown it made the area quiet but within hiking distance of the restaurants if you preferred to walk. The only tip we might make is to request a room facing the courtyard instead of the street to guarantee the quietest stay possible. We would definitely stay here again.
