We enjoyed our short stay in Friday Harbor at 123 West. The room was beautiful and looked right out into the harbor itself. We appreciated that the ferry boats rarely sounded their horns since we were so close to the dock! The location was great--pretty much within walking distance of everything in town. Our only complaint was the early morning... More

I contacted the Island Inn after being cancelled by Wildwood B&B that abruptly sold to a private party . The price for a one bedroom room was considerable,but at the last minute, given the time line, beggars can't be choosers ! I reserved a Euro room, (which is a room with no windows to the exterior .

Convenient location. Exceptional accommodations. Mini fridge in room with juice, milk. Fresh fruit in room daily. Had a room with no exterior windows but had a shared living space with a view of the harbor. Who'll be returning next May for our wedding anniversary.

We arrived by seaplane which lands right at the marina. There was no offer to help with bags, I was instructed to walk on up to the hotel. It's not a long walk but if I were not in shape or elderly, this would be a workout due to the steepness and carrying of luggage. There were no elevators that... More
