Loved the view from the balcony of boats arriving at the dock. The front desk was very helpful in finding excursion activities and recommending restaurants for meals. The morning. Real fast is really good and helped us start our day well fed and ready for the whole day of activities. Wish the weather would he been better all 3 days.

We spent 4 nights here, and had Dinner in the Restaurant twice. We had the corner room on the second floor, Room 21, which was great and had a fantastic view. The breakfast was great value and quality. Dinners at the restaurant were spectacular, with a great wine selection. Best Ribeye steaks ever. All in all one of our best...

We stayed here for one night. The room was listed as partial view, but would have been considered "full" view almost anywhere else. Breakfast included, was great! If I had any gripes it would be that check in is a bit late at 4pm.

We were so impressed by the Friday Harbor House. The hotel is literally steps away from the Friday Harbor ferry, restaurants, and anything downtown. The location doesn't get any better. The rooms are big, clean, and comfortable. The staff is so incredibly inviting and accommodating. We highly recommend eating at the restaurant for dinner. What's even more, they include breakfast....

We stayed here in August and loved it. I would highly recommend staying here. They had complimentary breakfast that was delicious and you couldn't have asked for a better location. The view of the harbor was great and watching the sunrise from our bedroom was icing on the cake.

Wow. What a great location, quiet, spectacular harbor views, professional & service oriented staff, and a terrific continental breakfast. Easy access to town (1 block) and all points on the island. Staff was particularly helpful in suggesting an itinerary for our 3 day stay--we were not disappointed.

If you want to pay more for a room you get a great view of the harbor. We had a less expensive room, which was still very expensive that was over the parking lot with no view. Our room was very well used. One of the chairs in the room had a large stain. Whatever they used to clean the...
