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. Our room had a spectacular view over the town and harbor and the calm high end Zen vibe is really wonderful...

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. The restaurant at the hotel was SO good. We had dinner and breakfast there. The icing on the cake though was the staff. They are old-school, will do anything to make your stay impeccable....

Friendly staff, terrific location and great value for the price. Ferry ride was a nice one hour wind down before reaching hotel. Central location made bringing a vehicle extraneous. Restaurant on the property was small, but intimate and warm. Off season stay was great, no crowds and no waiting in line at other restaurants in the area. Definitely consider this...

We had an amazing getaway at the Friday Harbor House. The pictures on the website didn't do the hotel justice; great views, top-of-the-line amenities and a distinctly European feel. Felt like we were in another part of the world. Fireplace was an added romantic bonus. Customer service was flawless (just like the views) and the concierge was attentive and helpful....

The staff and rooms at Friday Harbor House were excellent. I would recommend to everyone. We had the most amazing view, we elected to have Happy Hour on our deck rather than go to restaurant. :) The breakfast was also perfect, great coffee! It was great not to have to bring car over on ferry, just walk on (only $14...

Just returned from a mid week, off season stay at Friday Harbor House. The hotel is undergoing renovations which means there is some construction noise during the day.

Friday Harbor House is a small, friendly hotel perched on a bluff overlooking pretty Friday Harbor. Very comfortable rooms, plus very helpful staff. Restaurant is great for dinner and breakfast. You should also try the great drinks at the bar! Fantastic location to explore San Juan island, or just walk around town. We were there for two days off-season and...
