We had such a great time at Discovery Inn. You can tell the rooms have recently been remodeled and everything was very comfortable - more than we expected for the price. Heather was great to work with and very thoughtful. We missed our ferry and had to check in later than we expected, but Heather just left the key in our room and allowed us to check in at our convenience the next morning. We also appreciated that she already had a pack n' play crib all set up in our room for our 7 month old daughter. We travel to the San Juans fairly often and will definitely want to stay here again!

Room Tip: If you're considering a standard queen, definitely upgrade to the deluxe. The extra space is worth the cost.

It's a great motel, and definitely the best value on the island (at least during the winter). Close to Friday Harbor but tucked away in a nice quiet area with a gorgeous little park and a romantic swing, which was perfect for moon-gazing. Of course since it's winter the jacuzzi was closed and the park wasn't in full bloom, but it was still lovely and I can only imagine how picturesque it is in the summer. Our room was impeccably clean, the bedding and decorative pillows were lovely, and the free wi-fi and flat-screen TV were great. Service was wonderful and the San Juan picture book in our room was fun to look through. Our only complaint was that since the place got over-booked our reservation was downgraded to a standard queen instead of the deluxe, which meant that we had no fridge or microwave and the bathtub was shower-only - not ideal for our romantic getaway, but that's probably on us for not booking sooner. Highly recommend this place, and we plan on coming back in the summer!

Thank you for staying at the Discovery Inn this past weekend and for your nice review on Tripadvisor. We would love to have you return especially in the Summer or Fall when can enjoy our flowers and garden when they are in full bloom. Our jacuzzi would be open too. We look forward to your return visit in the summer. Warm wishes.

We stayed at the Discovery Inn for the Valentine's Day Weekend Special. Katie and Heather were so friendly and helpful. They gave us great advice on what to do and where to dine. The rooms were gorgeous. Definitely exceeding our expectations for the extremely reasonable price we paid. The've been recently remodeled and everything was modern and clean. The beds were so comfy! We had the best experience and will definitely come back in the summer and stay!!!

Having never visited the San Juan Islands before, we weren't sure how all the various travels and moving about was going to work. The folks at Discovery Inn were wonderful in making it a very stress free trip. They worked with us when our ferry was late and provided great service for our room. The sweet lady at the desk (can't remember her name now) gave us great recommendations for food and gave us plenty of information to make our stay enjoyable. The room itself was great. We had an upgraded room with a fridge and microwave but even without those it would have been a great room. We highly recommend the Discovery Inn.
