First time on the island and this was a wonderful place to stay, one block from the Harbor and close to everything. Room wasn't big but it was perfect. Loved the cuddly robes and fine soft linens, super comfortable european-style sleeping rooms. I really enjoyed the healthy breakfast items, my favorite the fresh scones. They also provide retro-cruiser bicycles. Awesome...

We have stayed here twice, once in one of the upstairs suites where you share two bathrooms down the hall (manageable, I promise) and this time, in the Whidbey Suite, with its own entrance. Both times, the communal breakfast between 8-10am has proven to be a nice way to start the day. It's intimate without being forced, you can just...

Enjoyed our visit to Friday Harbor and stay at Bird Rock Hotel. My family stayed in the Salt Spring Room. It was great for my husband, myself and our 10 month old. Parking was easy to obtain on the street each day. Hotel provided a pack and play and my son slept very well with it tucked into the bedroom....

Family finished a three day kayak trip and was looking for a place to recover, Bird Rock fit the bill just right. Great room in the middle of Downtown with easy walking access to everything.

We spent 2 nights as part of our tour with Crystal Seas Kayaking. We stayed in the Cypress room. Our room was the perfect size and the bathroom was very nice. The staff was incredible. Couldn't have been nicer. We were tempted to stuff our bags with the great scones and cookies when we left.

We had a comfortable stay in a suite for one night. The whirlpool tub was nice and the continental (plus eggs and yogurt) breakfast was very generous. We closed the windows at night so the noise was not a problem (and earplugs available too), but then the air got a slight bit stuffy (but not bad with the fan). Seemed...

Hi Nicole, Thank you so much for your visit and your nice review. Our Bird Rock is one of the oldest hotels on the island (and the first with indoor plumbing).
