Absolutely perfect. My stay was flawless, staff was more than helpful and friendly! I'll stay there again very soon. A great getaway for the couple or solo. Friday Harbor is a dream. Visiting the west side of the island was beautiful as well.

Within an hour of our arrival I was planning my return visit to The Island Inn because I knew one weekend was not going to be enough. I emailed friends inviting them to join me, sending photos from the roof deck on a beautifully sunny afternoon. It's rare to find a place that everyone in my family enjoys, but this...

My original stay at this lovely boutique inn was in January 2016, for which I gave it 5 stars (see my March 2016 review). I am giving it 5 stars again because it turned out to be as excellent as the first time. I stayed in the same well-appointed penthouse (#5), partly because of the view and partly because of...

This is just such a great hotel! We walked off the ferry and up about a block into the hotel. It's so close! They have a very welcoming staff.

We loved our winter overnight stay in this stylish, modern, dog-friendly inn. Clean and lots of nice touches. Perfect location—we were able to walk anywhere "downtown" and explore the island. What a great find!

Right at the base of Friday Harbor, this cute Inn does a great job of making this small island have an upscale place to relax.

I left the local metropolis that is home, strolled Deception Pass Bridge, then found myself relaxing at the gorgeous Anacortes ferry terminal just 90 minutes later. Festive welcome by ferry staff, and an hour of sunken mountain scenery, distant volcanoes, and sky. A few blocks from the ferry, facing the harbor was the Inn. Stylish condo living in our choice...

We stayed for one night in the room just over on the euro community rooms. A little weird having a window that looks out to a room with a bunch of people you don't know.

The penthouses, with full kitchens and separate bedrooms are like having a modern loft overlooking bustling Friday Harbor and the San Juan Islands.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ready, set, slow™ Our boutique hotel is the closest to the Ferry and harbor, yet so far away from ordinary. The right pace at the right time; The Island Inn at 123 West is brand spanking new and as green as it gets. Dress us up or dress us down. You'll dig our contemporary style that nods to maritime gone by. Penthouses are fun for families, groups and splurges; Euros are best if you roll with less and Sweets are just like they sound. 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.
