During the last snow fall we were unable to get home. We live on San Juan Island on the top of a steep hill. We drove back to town and checked into the Discovery Inn for the night. The receptionist was so kind and the owner gave us the locals' discount. The room was clean and cozy and quiet! We enjoyed our stay so much we stayed another night! Thank you for being our home away from home. Joellen and Mark
Normally when I write a review of a place I stay at it is because they went above and beyond and are truly amazing or they have issues and it wasn't a good stay at all and I feel people should know about it. In this case I can say it is all good. First let me get my gripes out of the way... Absolutely nothing at all. Frankly I have never stayed at a place where I not only felt as though I was apart of the owners family but I really liked them a lot and want to stay and talk with them for hours on end. This place is exactly like that from the beginning. When we arrived Terri was truly amazing and spoke to us as though we are old friends coming for a visit after months away. We were greeted with water bottles and a small bag of chocolate which was a nice touch. Terri made sure we had anything we needed and even made sure we knew if we needed anything at all she would get it for us. My wife and I booked the hottub right away and she made sure it was open and ready for us to use it right when we wanted it. When done it was dinner time and decided to use their BBQ pit they have in the park like lawn area. Normally when you have a place have these type of pits you have to provide the charcoal and supplies needed but not at this place. Everything you could ever need is provided for you. When I say everything, I mean everything. You need a try they have it, you need silverware, its there. Need tin foil? got it. Everything you can possibly need is all provided for you which makes BBQing here so wonderful. The lighting makes it magical. It is inevitable that during a stay of longer than a night you will need something, at this place it is provided for you when asked and they do it with a smile and nice little notes wishing us a great day which just adds to the ambiance of the place. When out microwave stopped working and was giving us fits one call and within a minute Terri was there to help us with it and even had it fixed while we were out. When we got back she had left us a small note hoping we had a nice day and to let us know the microwave was fixed and if we needed anything to let her know. Terri and Roger are truly amazing at what they do and truly seem to care that their guests have a magical experience. When I come back I will stay here because it truly is magical.…
Quiet room and wonderful accommodations . Nice coffee bar and mi row Ave and fridge in the room. Walkable to Friday harbor (about .5 miles) nice staff; after hours keys accessible and hot tub. You have to make a reservation for the hot tub tho.
We were very impressed with Discovery Inn. It was extremely clean and comfortable, the grounds were well taken care of, their covid accommodations were really good. We were very happy with our stay there and got great help planning where to eat and how to spend our time seeing the island. The only downside was we woke up to an alert from the ferries that our reserved ferry had been canceled so had to scramble to catch a ferry and were unable to personally say thank you.
Not my first stay and certainly won’t be my last. This is my home away from home when visiting my son and there is a reason. The cleanliness is off the charts. The feeling of family with Terri and the rest of the crew is unparalleled. They are the definition of “true hospitality “ and should be proud of what they provide. The grounds are immaculate with many added features such as lawn games and bbq materials. You cannot go wrong with this property!
