This place was amazing! We loved our room and appreciated the great attention to detail in decorating and furnishing. The large tiled shower was a major highlight. We will highly recommend the Inn to our friends.

Small euro-style room refreshed daily with fruit, coffee, juice, granola. Walls are quite thin if you have loud guests. Huge shared living room with fireplace. Friday Harbor is a delightful place with good restaurants art shops and movie theater.

We thought the place was overpriced for essentially an off season time of the year. WiFi was intermittent. Our room was spacious and very much out of a Scandinavian design showroom. Extra comforts were provided although we had to pay to park. It is hard to imagine that this was a condo/timeshare development but it is easy to see why... More

I stayed here late Sept 2014 with my daughter. We had a great time. The room was beautiful with a view and very modern and clean. The staff were really nice. It was a very convenient location just off the ferry and close to all of the shops and restaurants. A very nice hotel.

Make a splash in a floatplane, slip in on the ferry or chart your own course. Get here and go with the slow. Kick things up and paddle a sea kayak with our resident orcas, tool around the island on bicycle, stroll through quaint seaside shops and restaurants or just re_combobulate. For your family: Relatives rejoice; hosting a family reunion at the Island Inn at 123 West is uber easy - we're goldilocks approved. For your wedding: We vow to: bend over backwards for you and your guests; do our top secret rain dance on your special day; promise not to cry only if you don't.
