You don't find many places where everything just is right. This is one of them. The location of the Island Inn is perfect in the middle of Friday Harbour with the best views on the bay, the hustle and bustle of the ferry, restaurants next door. The penthouse we stayed in was really spacious, had everything we needed, beds are super comfortable and you could see that every detail was thought about. From the towels, the 'half full' water glass next to the sink, the fireplace, the beds in a bag, the fruit plate that was refilled every day, the granola, juice and milk in the fridge, tea and coffee and so on. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the decor is just a dream. Scandinavian, modern, comfortable.

Room Tip: I have the impression that every room is great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay “inn” Penthouse 5 at the The Island Inn. The view was beautiful, day and night. The staff was accommodating beyond our expectations and the room was very comfortable. I loved that it was easy to walk downtown, and shop!
Three days was not enough to relax and enjoy the amenities and and decor of the suite. We like to try new places, when we come to Friday Harbor, but it will be hard not to return to the Island Inn! Thank you!

Stayed here twice - loved the accommodations, the view, the staff, the yummy treats in the fridge, and the overall vibe of the place. Penthouse 2 is amazing and wonderful and I hope to someday go back there. If I had a cool condo in the PNW, I would absolutely decorate it like that place. Be sure to get parking in the garage if you are driving. Parking is limited around that part of town. To this day, I still dream of that granola!!!!!!

E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g about the Island Inn was top notch. Accommodations were lovely, ultra comfortable and welcoming. Loved the fruit bowl, granola and other touches that gave me the option to dine out and snack in. Cannot say enough about the staff. They bailed me out of some tight spots when I spaced getting to the wedding rehearsal I was a part of. Everyone was kind, gracious and professional. I’ll return to this little oasis again when I make it back to Friday Harbor. Many thanks to all.

This is the place to stay on Friday Harbor! Conveniently located across from the ferry landing. Clean & comfortable, professional & friendly staff...makes you feel like family.

Recently added stack washer & dryer, a big plus for our stay!!!
Thank you, will definitely be staying again when visiting the San Juan Islands. Had a Penthouse suite with a roof top balcony, amazing views!

Room Tip: Penthouse suites worth the price, but does have stairs to climb. Previously stayed in #5 which has street level access.
