I just stayed at the Yakima Suite (one of the Ferry Landing Suites) with a friend of mine during our recent Friday Harbor visit and I couldn't have been happier w/the small condo. I've stayed at a few places on the island (Earthbox Inn, Roche Harbor Resort & the campground at the Lakedale Resort) but after staying in the Yakima Suite... I don't think I'll ever stay anywhere else. Located directly across from the ferry landing, we had a stunning view of the harbor and the marina, from the top floor of a charming Victorian (which houses a great coffee shop on the 1st floor). Each morning we drank our coffee while looking out on the fog lifting over the marina and each afternoon we watched the ferries load and unload while enjoying wine & cheese in the little living room. The studio unit was very comfortable w/a nice queen bed and sofa bed. The kitchenette was small but included all we needed for a good retreat. And there was very good amenities in the condo, including coffee, tea, hot chocolate in the kitchenette as well as Molton Brown soap/shampoo/conditioner, etc. in the bathroom. Also, while the previous reviewers indicated that there was no parking... it appears the property mgmt. fixed that because there is now a dedicated parking spot just at the front door for each "suite"... so parking was extremely easy. The only thing I'd recommend is that the property mgmt. look into the water heating for the unit because the shower would never get that hot (warm but not hot) and on a cold morning... it's nice to have a hot shower! But that wouldn't hold me back because I can't wait to stay there again!
