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. Some reviewers have noted a very expensive $300/night but frankly, EVERY place that you seek to stay there is expensive. We originally wanted to rent a bungalow on the...

We are very happy that you were able to find our hotel on the island while everything seemed to be sold out. We strive on great customer service and are pleased we were able to give you and your daughter a enjoyable stay. You are a star! Thank you for the amazing review.

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...

We stayed here for our anniversary. We had reserved a queen studio, but they upgraded us to a queen suite. There were only two of us, so it was a lot more than we needed, but it was nice. Great, hot breakfast in the morning. A half mile walk to the shops, waterfront and ferry. They do provide a shuttle...

We stayed here twice when we visited Friday Harbor. The room are big and spacious but can get stuffy since they do not have air conditioning. They had a nice hot breakfast but served the same thing everyday. It is located on Spring Street and is in the perfect location to go to rent a car from M and W...

Very pleased to hear you had a pleasant stay with us. The weather this year has been pretty darn warm. We do offer portable A/C units for the rooms but we have a limited supply. It is handy to have a Car Rental service right across the street. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a...

Friday Harbor Suites is a pretty basic place at a very high price. Up the hill from the central core of Friday Harbor, too far to comfortably walk but the hotel will provide a shuttle service if you're willing to wait. Oddly located in an area of medical/dental offices. The inside rooms face a center courtyard with a hot tub...

Great to hear you had an enjoyable time on the island. We are happy that we can offer spacious rooms to our guests, for comfort and quietness is our number one priority. A great addition to our hotel is our On Demand Shuttle service. Our hotel is a bit of a walk to the downtown area but that is what...

The Friday Harbor Suites offer clean, well staffed lodgings. The suites would be very attractive for families or groups traveling together. The facility is immaculate and the entire staff was helpful and congenial. Lobby coffee pots were kept filled. Items refilling the choices at the continental breakfast were prepared and offered in small enough batches that the food did not...

We ended up with extra passengers while boating. We wanted to stay in a local hotel rather than on the boat. This place offered us the perfect place. Small kitchenette, fireplace, deck, two bedrooms and large bath. The hot tub is huge with guests towels. The buffet breakfast was included in our stay. Hotel staff were friendly and informative.

We found this accommodation quiet clean and comfortable and moderately priced. Great for couples and families. We didn't know about the pickup from the Clipper. But our short walk up the hill did present us a rewarding chance lunch encounter at The Cask and Schooner. The zig- zag corridor of Friday Harbor Suites took a little getting used to but...

We booked this hotel for 3 nights as part of a Clipper Vacation. They pick you up at the dock. Our suite was very roomy. It was a little dated, especially the couch. Otherwise it was clean and had a balcony overlooking the parking lot. It was warm and I would have used the air conditioner to sleep, if they...
