Our room was very nice with a sophisticated interior design and furnishings. It had a gas fireplace which was really nice, a small fridge which was very helpful for snacks, great K cup coffee maker, complimentary high speed internet, functional desk and a great bed.

We recently stayed for three nights at Friday Harbor House. We were traveling with another couple and we all thought that the hotel was wonderful! The hotel sits high above the harbor in a perfect location. Our rooms had gorgeous views of the harbor and gas fireplaces. The whole hotel was impeccably clean and our rooms were spotless every day....

Room was comfortable and huge (we stayed in the studio) and had a partial view. They're pet friendly and there's a small park nearby to take the pups for a bathroom break. We enjoyed breakfast at their restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at their selection. Excellent food! Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful--would definitely stay here again!

This boutique hotel is high on quality and customer service. I stayed during some renovations and, aside from the paper on the floor, you'd never know work was being done. Great staff, sleek, modern rooms - mine came with a fireplace and whirlpool tub. Just wish I could have stayed more than one night!

I was reading some reviews and a lot were based on the staff. Some reviews talk about the food no being good. I disagree. First, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We arrived early and parked the car on the parking lot prior to our whale watch tour (booked directly with service provider). Hotel staff provided us tips for...

Room, staff and all amenities are good, just don't make the mistake of eating dinner there (breakfast is ok). Biggest issue with dinner: they were out of items, didn't tell us, substituted with items and didn't tell us and then acted like it was supposed to be that way even when confronted with the menu. The waiter tried to make...

Our room was beautiful, accommodated our family of four easily. The whole place was very attractive and comfortable. The people made the real difference for us though, from the moment we arrived, we were treated really well. Morgan in particular was just super to us, very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions of things to do in the islands. Carissa (hope...

Great service at the restaurant/bar and an amazing view with good prices. Bar tender was very friendly, offering a unique taste of different drinks. The hotel was also recently remodeled and has a very elegant atmosphere. Didn't stay the night but I plan on coming back!

Stayed here this week for two glorious nights - although the hotel is undergoing a remodeling and there are a few remaining tweaks needed, the staff is friendly, accommodating and eager to please and the property is really beautiful.

Love, love, loved everything about our stay. The hotel was beautiful, freshly renovated. Our room had the best view ever and a fireplace, super comfortable bed.
