Because of my irregular sleeping habits we always stay in a suite with a separate bedroom. We shopped high and low for suites in Friday Harbor and booked a getaway for two nights, sight-unseen. This EXCELLENT rating began before we got there, in the outstanding customer service offered on the phone as we made the reservation. The agent accommodated every...

Called the day before we wanted to arrive. Pleasant and helpful staff booked a pet friendly room with a Military discount. The room is large and comfortable enough. Breakfast is fine and more than ample. Grounds are clean. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi but wished the water pressure in the showers was greater. Overall, we would stay here again though we...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. Spacious in that regard. Slept well, yet I must agree with other reviews about the outdated appearance and appliances. The biggest complaint? The loud refrigerator that rattled, buzzed,and made for constant unpleasant noise. I would have asked for a new room, but we had already settled.

Check in was easy the room was small but had everything we needed and then some (a little Kitchenette was nice). The furniture 100% needs to be updated. It's all old and reminds me of a grandparents house. The breakfast was complimentary and had eggs and potatos! I was pretty excited about that after a week of granola and pastries...

This hotel is a short walk from downtown and the ferry terminal. The hot tub was nice, and the breakfast in the morning was ok. The cost was a bit steep, but I guess that what the market will bear in the islands. Parking in the parking lot is inadequate and we had to park on the street.

Thank you so much for the review. I am very pleased that you had a good stay at our hotel. Parking can be difficult because we have a very popular restaurant that gets busy from 4-9pm and parking can be limited. We also have a back parking lot that is strictly for guests use only.

Despite the bad attitude of the front desk staff, the outdated décor and the marginal breakfasts, the hotel provided an excellent value. The price was reasonable, the suite was very spacious with a living room and kitchen and patio, the facility was clean and comfortable, the grounds were pleasant, the parking convenient.

I'll admit that we booked into Friday Harbor Suites because we got a very good deal on our reservation - half the price and more of all other hotels in the area.

After moving from the Friday Harbor House for my last few days on the island, I had an opportunity to do first hand comparisons. So this may be a bit biased.
