This is an older hotel that has been refurbished giving it an up-to-date look & feel. The hotel has all the basic in-room amenities, a pool/Jacuzzi/sauna, and a onsite spa. We have stayed there two years in a row now and plan to do it again next year. The rooms have always been clean. It's within walking distance (about 5...

It's true what the other reviews say - the Inn and Spa are wonderful. The rooms are so clean, comfortable and quiet. Tastefully done with just the right touches! What we really appreciated was the hearts of the owner Laura and her staff. Each one of them has such a light about them - they all made our visit to...

What a nice Inn and Spa. Incredibly friendly staff all weekend long. Comfortable, quiet rooms with many pillow per bed- hard ones, soft ones, and medium ones too. Nice swimming pool/hot tub/sauna/exercise room combination. Free bikes. And a very convenient location in which you can walk all around the 'downtown' area in several minutes. This is only my 2nd review...

They did an excellent job refurbishing an old motel. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The beds are comfortable. Each has six pillows - for some reason! Free inroom wifi. Parking at your door. The staff is friendly and efficient with good knowledge about local places to eat. There is a nice indoor swimming pool and free bicycles for...

Having never been to Friday Harbor before, we took advantage of a Groupon for the Earthbox Inn. The website was very accurate in its description of the inn being a 70s motel that had been spruced up. We arrived on foot from the ferry and it was an easy four block walk to the motel. We stayed in a Water...

We recently stayed two days at the Earthbox Inn. It was our first time in Friday Harbor. Great location, comfortable room, very friendly service, nice lobby area. The indoor pool and hot tub are a real plus. Their suggestions for activities, and places to eat were right on. Good for couples and families.

I recently had to be in Friday Harbor for business, and after a lot of research chose Earthbox to stay at. First off, Friday Harbor is NOT a cheap place to stay. This was really the most economical option (there is a very cheap motel in FH, but It's pretty disgusting looking). The lobby area is very nice, and the...

We stayed one night to attend a family wedding. Room was small but clean and decorated according the philosophy of the Inn. Very-well lit inside, which is unsual for a hotel room. We had a very pelasant stay. Walking distance to town. Very convenient. Their website offered a lot of useful information.

We paid about half the usual rate because of a groupon. I would only go back with another coupon, which they offer pretty regularly. They give you cheap earplugs in your room, and you certainly need them. The walls are paper thin and you can hear every noise. Now for the pros, within walking distance of many cute restaurants and...
