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...

We stayed at the Earthbox Inn over Christmas, and we really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a Water Place room, which was small but had everything we needed including a microwave, fridge, and wi-fi. Two main reasons to book here: 1) The proximity to the ferry. You can easily walk off the ferry in Friday Harbor and stay here....

We stayed for a night at the earthbox Inn and also got a hot stone massage at the spa. Our room was modern, clean, warm, and perfect. Our massage was delicious and the spa is gorgeous. Located right in town, a close walk to all Friday Harbor shops and attractions. Really great place! We will be back for sure.

My husband, 3 boys, and myself stayed a weekend at Earthbox and we all loved it. It is centrally located so we were able to walk to breakfast both mornings in town. During the day we visited the beaches and looked for whales. The boys mostly wanted to swim in the indoor pool and hot tub. Our room was simple,...

We recently spent 5 days here as a family. It was a beautiful experience. The rooms are tastefully updated in a modern, subdued decor. All personal care products are provided in an aromatic lavender scent. The bedding is all modern and comfortable for a perfect sleep. The pool, sauna and hot tub were a relaxing and fun diversion. They are...

Nice hotel. Warm interior, pretty dark (I liked it though) big room equipped with bathrobes, wine glasses (if you wish to) etc. Lavender cosmetics - I loved them. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great idea with bikes. Could be closer to the water.
