We traveled with a group of eleven neighbors. Four of the couples were booked in a nearby hotel, one in an RV Park and we were fortunate to stay at the Island Inn123 West. I found the Inn by searching the Island's website. After reading the description of various lodging offerings thoroughly, I selected The Island Inn, Euro room, because... More

This was a last minute booking, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. The hotel is LEED certified, which I appreciate, and has a modern, simple decor style. I stayed in one of two Euro rooms, which are connected to a common space available to all of the guests. There was fresh fruit, orange juice, milk and granola, in... More

I rented out Penthouse 2 with three of my High School friends. I highly recommend this unit as it has the front balcony and roof top access. Both gives you front views of the bay to watch the sea planes come in and out, the ferries, boats and activity on the street. We listened to the concert in the park... More

Modern, LEED certified hotel. We had a penthouse with a great kitchen, fireplace, and 2 bedrooms/baths. Great linens, towels, and Malin + Goetz bath products. One block from the ferry station, and close to numerous restaurants,cafes and bars.

We stayed at the island inn for three nights as part of a visit to the northwest and San Juan island. The room that we stayed in (actually a two bedroom suite with full kitchen!) was especially comfortable and well appointed. We had a view looking out on the harbor from a huge panel of large windows, and even had... More

Only one night but loved it. Large clean room right by harbor and staff was very helpful. Offered to stay late if we wanted/needed to finish eating first. Fresh fruit was great touch as were bathrobes

We took the room with the best view of the harbor (Penthouse 2); not by choice - it was the last room with a view left when I made our reservation. It was much to large for the two of us - 2.5 bedrooms, 2 bath - but it was beautiful. I am glad we got this room. Sitting on... More

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.

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.
