We booked at the last minute, so we weren't surprised we had to change rooms midway thru our stay.... but ultimately it was the best thing that could happen. Night one we were in the sky place room. It was nice enough; it was one of the few rooms available in town with air conditioning on one of Washington's rare...

Nice location. Rooms clean and comfortable. Pool needs to be a little warmer. Hot tub great. Facilities very good. Good location 4 blocks from center of town. Good value. Single speed bikes available for checkout. Parking great; right outside your room.

This was a great choice for a stay in Friday Harbor. The room we stayed in (a Queen size bedroom, small jacuzzi tub), was "cozy," but perfect as a base of operations for a quick stay on San Juan Island (a place where, if you plan to spend a lot of time in your hotel, you're there for the wrong...

We stayed here for a weekend. The house was great. They thought of nearly everything. Nearly. The good: Great location, really nice accommodations, all of the amenities were great - great beds, great towels, lovely shower gels, etc. The questionable: It was the hottest weekend of the year thus far (it was the end of June), and there was not...

The rooms don't have a view, but you can walk to everything in Friday Harbor and there is an indoor pool/spa/sauna. The downstairs rooms do carry sound and we had to open windows to ventilate the room, but it was clean, newer, bright and had what we needed. They arranged a downstairs room so we could bring along our old...

First, let me say staff was the nicest I've ever met. The rooms are really nice and the beds were comfortable. The pool looked awesome and the free bike use was awesome. The downstairs rooms are very loud from outside and above. The buildings are very old so that's just the way it is, no sleeping in. They do have...

When you get a free pair of ear plugs next to the little soaps you get a Little concerned. You can hear people walking above you and the next room. Luckily I had quiet guests nearby and did not need them. The bed was the most inviting part of the room. Very comfy. However the bathroom walls show every mark...

My parents and I came to Friday Harbor and had reserved "Wind Place" - a 2 bedroom cottage - because of a friend's recommendation. It was Monday of Memorial Day weekend and they were short staffed in the cleaning crew. We were initially a bit frustrated since check in was by 3 and we couldn't get in util 3:30. But...

Earthbox Inn and Spa was truly a delight and a wonderful experience of accomadations and excellent service! The rooms were clean and decorated so nice. They reminded me a little bit of the island feel of Hawaii. They provide a nice indoor pool, spa, suana and gym on site and a deluxe spa next door. Earthbox is the sister hotel...
