We loved staying at the Bird Rock Inn--great location, beautifully decorated, excellent staff! We stayed here for two nights after a 3-day kayaking trip with Outdoor Odysseys (see my review) and it was lovely to sleep in a big beautiful bed again. We had one of the rooms on the third floor with no bathroom, but for us it really...

This hotel is a couple of blocks away from the hub, so it is a bit quieter. The decor is very modern and elegant. The person running it was so friendly. She went out of her way to make special accommodations for my breakfast since I had a very early departure. I agree with "lucidilies" - a lot like a...

We selected the Bird Rock Hotel because it was only a block from our kayaking trip pickup location and ferry dock. The staff was pleasant. It was a little pricey at $200 a night for the Whidby room, but the amenities were very nice. The robes supplied were incredibly soft. The shampoos and lotions were locally made. We took advantage...

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. It's really more like a B&B rather than a hotel - this is a place where they really get to know you and make you feel at home. The staff were all so nice and welcoming and went out of their way to provide all the necessary comforts. We booked the...

Do be prepared for some noise from the bar across the street. The onlly night this happened was Saturday night when they had a...

Wonderful surprises in this vintage but modern hotel right in the heart of Friday Harbor. We loved our room, the Matia, with a large and comfortable bed. Our room use shared bathrooms, which were very clean and convenient. The breakfast bar included many very yummy and healthy choices. This hotel had everything you might need, and the staff are super...

My partner and I absolutely loved this quaint, updated vintage, eco-conscious hotel. The rooms transport you to a peaceful escape. The organic bedding is absolutely marvelous. I instantly feel asleep. We stayed in the Matia one night. The shared bathroom was the nicest I have ever had in a hotel. I love how the hotel uses large bottles of shampoo,...

My girlfriend and I stayed 2 nights in the Marrowstone Suite. I'll start with the positives. The bed was rather comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and has 2 shower heads. The continental breakfast is solid, cookies and lemonade are available at all hours, and one of the staff (1 of 2) is courteous and professional. Now for the negatives.. #1....

Dear Gjpalaga, Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your stay. I'm so sorry and quite embarrassed about how our staff treated your concerns and safety. You are absolutely right, that it is of very little comfort to you to know that one of us may know who smashed the window. Please believe me...

The Bird Rock hotel is has a great location in town. We had plenty of room in our 2 bedroom suite which was very clean and comfortable. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
