This hotel was once a Best Western and was probably built in the 70's. The room we had was okay but very dated and dark. Poor lighting and horrible water pressure in the shower. There was a small (maybe 6 inches) of space around the bathroom sink to lay out your toiletries . The bed was great and the pillows...

We stayed 6 nights in a small studio for $166/night including a good breakfast and shuttle service to town, which was only .6 miles away. While the room was adequate for our needs, the housekeeping left something to be desired. The rug was vacuumed and the bed linens were changed after three days. The TV picture was so faded it...

This is a good suite experience. The suite we had was clean and comfortable. Large bathroom with tub and shower, separate bedroom and living room, two flat-screen tvs. kitchenette. It is up a hill from the town center, which basically fronts the harbor. You maybe have a 5-6 block walk up a somewhat steep hill from there to get to...

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. It surprises me to hear that our hotel has no character. Our lobby has a huge fish tank with glass blown ocean creatures in it made by a local artist. We also have Several large canvass prints of wildlife and marine life hanging all around the lobby as well as the hallways. Thank...

We loved our stay here! It was perfect for the four of us as there was a separate bedroom for privacy. Having a kitchen with dishes and a Keurig coffee maker was a plus. The only problem I had with our room was that I couldn't get wireless well enough to get my email or go on Facebook. But I...

When I called the hotel same day as check in and asked for best rate, I was told $225. Then I went online and found the same room at $166. Strange since hotel direct same day is generally better. At check in we were told only one room available out by road. Fortunately it is quiet at night. "Suite Room"...

It seems that you called and were offered a Queen Suite at $225 a night plus tax. The room you booked sounds like a Queen Studio that was offered at $166 a night plus tax. Our Studios are not suites although they do have counter top kitchenettes. Thank you for the review.

My husband and I spent a weekend at Friday Harbor to attend a rehearsal dinner and wedding. Given the price we paid via luxury.res.net and our expectation of four-stay "luxury" quality, we were sorely let down and felt as if we were staying in a seedy, budget motel. The Good: . Front office staff were courteous and helpful . Location...

So sorry to hear that you had some issues during your stay. Seems some of these issues were resolved. Our hotel mainly consists of Queen Suites, although we do have a select few rooms that are smaller for guests that are traveling on a tighter budget. We take pride in our Maintenance staff which pay extra attention to possible mold...

From this hotel, you can walk to all the restaurants and the waterfront in Friday Harbor. The attached Mexican restaurant is very nice. We liked being able to sit in the Mexican restaurant in the mornings to eat the included breakfast. The hallways are very unique. You have to see them to believe them. The rooms are clean and quiet....

The hallways are a big hit with our guests. It sometimes feels as if you are looking into a mirror. Very pleased to know you had a great dinner at Mi Casita. We do offer portable A/C units upon request, this summer was a hot one so they may have been rented. Thank you for the review and hope to...

Friday harbor suites offered 2 separate bedrooms. Great for people like me who get up at 4am while my roommate sleeps till 8. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in an area several blocks off the main drag. Nice walking distance. Near the historical museum and art center

My daughter and I spent a week at the Friday Harbor Suites just last week. She flew in from Indiana and I am on an R&R trip from deployment in Kabul.

If you don't want to walk up the hill from town or the ferry, the hotel provides a shuttle service. This very recently was a Best Western Inn, so that should help give you an idea of what the hotel is like. We enjoyed our one week stay here, and would stay here again. There are two rooms, with separate...
