What a lovely hotel. The room we stayed in had a mesmerizing view of the harbor... We really enjoyed watching the ferries coming in at night. The restaurant was incredible as well. I hope to go back some day.

Went with my girlfriend of 4 years to this vacation spot and it was amazing! Great view with nearby restaurants and bars that were very entertaining with GOOD food!! The staff were very nice, the only thing that was lacking was the breakfast, but was still pretty good. I highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway. It will impressive your significant other for sure!!

Stayed there Saturday night on a return trip to the island- again very friendly staff , beautiful room overlooking the harbor, love the tub in the center of the room so you can enjoy the view while relaxing with a glass of wine, very comfortable bed as well. This is the 2nd time I have stayed and it is the only place I will stay, the complimentary breakfast in the morning with homeade breads is the icing on the cake

We used to do a lot of boating in Friday Harbor but now we're land locked. We stayed the evening of Valentines day and the management and staff took really good care of us going the extra mile accommodating our needs. We'll be back until we start boating again!

Room Tip: Harbor view rooms are worth the money and try to stay on the top floor to minimize overhead noise fr...

Friday Harbor House is Fabulous! Perched just above the Harbor, it is the ideal location! You can watch the Ferries arrive and depart! The rooms have a fireplace and a beautifully designed jacuzzi tub which allows you to view the harbor while relaxing in the tub!!! At check in, Victoria will be sure to take care that everything is up to the highest standards for you, the guest!!! She too is fabulous! The breakfast is delightful, again, with a stunning view of the harbor!!!

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room with the Harbor View!!!

Checked in and was told we were being given a special discounted price! Sounded great!
Then we figured out why. Two flights of stairs up to the room with our luggage and stairway was
through back kitchen entrance with smelly garbage sitting around.. not so great.
Room and bath were ok but because there is no A/C for the inn, we needed to leave the windows open. There was lots of loud talking outside our room at night from people coming and going from a small public park across from the hotel and kitchen noise etc. I was asked how we enjoyed the stay when checking out and I mentioned the not so great things about the room and was advised we should book a better room next time..yeah right.. I received an email from manager later offering to discount our room if we come back for another stay but no compensation for this experience..

Room Tip: Don't get the room above the kitchen!

Thank you for your review. Your stay with us was over 4 months ago and we have since renovated this room to meet all the standards of our guests. Our current surveys on this room are very positive due to the changes. I sent you a message back in September apologizing for your experience with your room and offering to have you back completely complementary as well as an upgrade. Often when guests book at the last minute, our options are limited. Of course, we cannot control the outside noise except to say that you had a very rare experience at Friday Harbor House. If you contact me by telephone at the property, I would be happy to discuss other options of compensation for you. Our first priority is always to assure our guests a first class experience.

We had a partial view room that was very generous w its view. The only negative, the room was very cold when we checked in. Once we figured out the heater, no problems. Room was large w nice corner patio windows/doors which gave a nice view of the nearby marina. The mattress could have been better - minor point. The breakfasts were adequate w friendly staff. Dinner at The Bluff restaurant was very good w good service and nice food presentation made for a nice meal. Parking was not a problem (Oct). Good proximity to everything in downtown Friday Harbor.
