Positives - great view, very helpful and knowledgeable staff, nice free breakfast. Negatives - Asked for balcony when reservation was made which was agreed to did not get one, heavy dust on ceiling vent intake, peeling paint on ceiling in bathroom, cobwebs in corner. About every hour there was this loud tapping sound in the wall that woke up a... More

We had the good fortune of stumbling upon this restaurant on our last night in Friday Harbor. We were seated right away and our good fortune contained as we were there at dusk. In a nutshell, four stars for the food, five stars for the setting. Very pleasant service, interesting but limited menu. Nice presentation and good execution. But again,... More

This was our first time going to Friday harbor house. Service was good and food was excellent. Nice music playing in the background. Outside offers a great view of harbor. Only draw back for the place is one restroom for one and all. It is a small place but was very surprised.

We had great food, a lovely room with a view, and terrific service at Friday Harbor House. August is a lovely time to go. Walking distance from the Ferry landing, great location. Walking distance to the whole town of Friday Harbor, including whale watching, boat rides, and kayaking.

The hotels at Friday Harbor in WA don't have air conditioning, but now Friday Harbor House does. It is a small unit similar to a wall unit but it does the trick. Thank goodness since it is unseasonably warm. Major plus. However, you can't plug in the tv and the air unit at the same time! Seriously. The chairs in... More

This place could be outstanding with the fix of the breakfast issue. The staff is friendly and responsive but they are set up to fail with breakfast advertised at 730. The grocery store opens at 730 and the staff person needed to run to the store to buy the milk. The hungry bikers and kayakers are lined up, ready to... More

First the positives: Location (!) was ideal for our 4-night stay at Friday Harbor House which is within walking distance to a variety of restaurants, groceries, small shops, island tour companies and of course the Washington Ferry, as well as a central location for traveling across the island and to sister islands. Our room had lovely harbor views from large... More

My wife and I stayed here one night on 12 August to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. The room (single harbor view queen) was nice, but at nearly $500 for the night it was not a great value. Our room was on the harbor side overlooking all of the boats at the docks which was beautiful, but it was almost... More

We have stayed in many hotels and I feel that the staff at this hotel went above and beyond. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and even though we only had to wait a short while for our room to be ready, we were offered a drink while we were at the bar plus they treated us to a room upgrade... More

Thin walls made for very noisy neighbors above and next door. The price is way too high for the accommodations! And the best! Someone stole my new LuLuLemon jacket out of my bag while they held our luggage at checkout.
