We spent 2 days in Penthouse 1, their best unit. The one bedroom suite is 1200 SF with a full kitchen subzero frig, steam bath and 2 bathrooms. The view from both living room and the bedroom is stunning! Watching the ferry and seaplanes in the harbor is fun! We have a beach house with bay view at Newport Balboa...

Within an hour of our arrival I was planning my return visit to The Island Inn because I knew one weekend was not going to be enough. I emailed friends inviting them to join me, sending photos from the roof deck on a beautifully sunny afternoon. It's rare to find a place that everyone in my family enjoys, but this...

My husband took me to The Island Inn at 123 west to explore San Juan Island for my birthday. Due to missing our ferry, our arrival time was really late, almost 1am. The front desk staff was very friendly and had no problem waiting for us to arrive to make sure we got situated comfortably. We stayed in suite 5,...

This was our first time on San Juan Island and the Island Inn was a perfect home base for all of our exploring. It's located right off the ferry terminal, close to restaurants and activities, and reasonably priced. Staff were very welcoming and friendly and it's nice to have a reserved parking spot so if you're driving to the island...

This is a really great place. The room I had was huge and comfortable. A full size coffee machine with coffee as well as fruit, granola, milk and juice were all left for breakfast and re-filled daily. I also appreciated the quality soap and shampoo. The bed was super comfortable as well. The location is fantastic if you want to...

Absolutely perfect. My stay was flawless, staff was more than helpful and friendly! I'll stay there again very soon. A great getaway for the couple or solo. Friday Harbor is a dream. Visiting the west side of the island was beautiful as well.

My original stay at this lovely boutique inn was in January 2016, for which I gave it 5 stars (see my March 2016 review). I am giving it 5 stars again because it turned out to be as excellent as the first time. I stayed in the same well-appointed penthouse (#5), partly because of the view and partly because of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ready, set, slow™ Our boutique hotel is the closest to the ferry and harbor, yet so far away from ordinary. The right pace at the right time; The Island Inn at 123 West is brand spanking new and as green as it gets. Dress us up or dress us down. You'll dig our contemporary style that nods to maritime gone by. Penthouses are fun for families, groups and splurges; Euros are best if you roll with less and Sweets are just like they sound. Make a splash in a floatplane, slip in on the ferry or chart your own course. Get here and go with the slow. Kick things up and paddle a sea kayak with our resident orcas, tool around the island on bicycle, stroll through quaint seaside shops and restaurants or just recombobulate. For your family: Relatives rejoice; hosting a family reunion at the Island Inn at 123 West is uber easy - we're Goldilocks approved. For your wedding: We vow to: bend over backwards for you and your guests; do our top secret rain dance on your special day; promise not to cry only if you don't. For your meeting: Ditch distraction and export your executives to the world's best spot to plan tomorrow's future.For your piggy bank: We're a partner of Stash Hotel rewards. That means you'll earn and redeem points at swanky places like the Island Inn and over 150 locations across the country. Reap while you sleep.
