The small things in life are what matter. And the staff at 123 West know this too! A named parking spot in the garage, fresh milk in the fridge, granola and fruit for breakfast, a proper teapot, delightful robes...this place IS luxurious but in an off beat way which we loved. We stayed in one of the penthouses and had... More

I have traveled constantly and have never stayed anywhere like this before. It is a hotel with hotel type rooms, but the penthouses are like condos! Amazing property with enclosed parking. All high end appliances, full kitchens, rooftop decks and more! They leave a wonderful array of fruits, granola, and milk in your room. Coffee, juice, tea and all the... More

This hotel was one of our favorites on our trip to the PNW. From the homemade granola on the counter and board games in the hall to the modern and fun decor- it was a treat all around!

Stayed in a regular room with peekaboo view of the harbor. Depending on type of room, some had open views of the harbor. Our room was perfect as we were outside most of our stay anyways. Pool themed bathroom was a clever touch. Reserve parking in advance of your driving too. We will be staying here again in the future!

If I could give the Island Inn 10 stars, I would! The Inn is perfectly located in the harbor, with views of everything. We stayed in Penthouse 4 and loved going to our roof deck, walking to downtown, and making quick trips across the island. They even had a parking space in the garage with our name on it. There...

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.
