I can't say enough about the service. I called three times to ask questions about the Inn, and each time Wendy was more than helpful, going out of her way to answer questions and never once seemed irritated with me. Upon arriving, Cindy greeted us, and through out the weekend went out of her way to make sure our stay... More

What a lovely surprise to find this delightful 35 room hotel where we felt indulged, yet very comfortable. To our delight we were upgraded due to the fact the room we were originally assigned had too many stairs (something that needs to be mentioned when booking). In our third floor room accessed by the only elevator we enjoyed the view... More

We stayed at Friday Harbor House in April of 2012. Would recommend it to anyone visiting San Juan Island. Stayed in room 36, could not have a more spectacular view of the harbor! The staff is very welcoming and very efficient, from the innkeeper right on down the line. The room is extremely comfortable and clean, with a nice fireplace..... More

Friday Harbor House and Island Inn at 123 West - are both located next to eachother and right on the Harbor if coming by Kenmore Air or ferry. The location is central and has lovely views. The main issue with Friday Harbor House is that the rooms are dated, tired, and could do with a refurb. There were all the... More

We (2 couples) really enjoyed our 1 night stay here. The other couple had a nicer view but the rooms were great. Gas fireplace, jacuzzi in the room, lots of amenities and best of all, steps away from the town and Washington State ferry wharf. The breakfast was excellent - most of it made in house.

We cashed in on our Livingsocial deal and stayed in room 35. Excellent room with a beautiful view. The bed is a bit small but fairly comfortable. We decided to stay a second night and were transferred to room 26, which was disappointing. The view was not as fantastic and the bed was uncomfortable. The room is also over the... More

The Harbor House is located a short walk from the ferry dock. It has a fantastic view that overlooks the harbor. The service was exceptional. They were very helpful with recommendations for a good hike and other areas to see on the island. This was our first trip to the San Juan islands and we would not hesitate to stay... More

Enjoyed fireplace and jacuzzi open to room. The bathroom is very nice and clean. The room has an excellent view of the harbor. As part of a Livingsocial package, the package contained a nice bottle of wine and excellent home made chocolate truffles. The hotel is centrally located--close to shopping, wine tasting and a variety of restaurants. The bed is... More

We are 3/4 of the way through our stay and have talked about why we will return to this location and property.. The property is excellently located in Friday Harbor, meaning the car can be left alone and the pace of life may settle down [ should mention that this is the slow season --- which is appreciated].

I stayed at the Friday Harbor House as part of a somewhat spontaneous, mid-week adventure and I couldn't be more pleased with my stay. The staff was welcoming and helpful from our first exchange to our last. Restaurants and shopes were in easy walking distance and yet it didn't feel like I was in the middle of hustle and bustle...
