Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed here three nights on a visit to the San Juan islands. Had a two bedroom suite. Clean, comfortable, good breakfast, excellent wifi reception. Few min walk to downtown and ferry. My grandson says even the sofa bed had a comfortable mattress. And very competitively priced. Overall it is an excellent place to stay.

We're so glad you stayed with us and had such a good trip to the island.
We just had our wifi speed tripled and everyone really seems to like the new higher speeds for downloading.
i hope the rest of your trip goes well and we look forward to another visit from you :)

We made a spur of the moment trip to the San Juan Islands and were accommodated in a lovely suite by the good folks at Friday Harbor Suites. The staff were excellent. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. There is an excellent Mexican restaurant on site with a nice out door area. Also, breakfast comes with the suite and was very good. It allowed us to get up and moving to enjoy the beautiful island around us. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Wow - this place was a pleasant surprise! We booked thru Clipper Vacations and paid a bit more than the other option. When I asked the booking agent the difference she mentioned that there was a lot more room here plus free breakfast so we said yes to Friday Harbor Suites. So glad we did! If you haven't been to Friday Harbor, the map looks like this is quite a bit further from town but it's a only a short block up from the other place and well worth it.
The thing that matters most to us is cleanliness and that was 5 star - not a speck anywhere. Next is that bed - it better be comfortable or there goes the vacation - again: perfect - not too firm, cushy enough to get a great night's sleep with nice linens and clean quiet room. And the room is truly a suite - kitchen w/ microwave, good sized fridge, decent counter space, sink, dishes and flatware and a counter top eating area with comfortable seating. Adjacent is a living room which opened onto a good-sized balcony with chairs and trees to look out on. In our case the living room had another queen bed and an excellent flat-screen TV. Bedroom has same TV and a full closet. There's a coat closet AND a hall closet with floor-to-ceiling shelving for storage if you stayed a week. Full-sized bathroom- spotless with good lighting, hair dryer and fan that actually works! (yes! :) Carpet was new and clean. Even the lobby decor and artwork was lovely along with the landscaping.
You will hear a few small planes landing at the airport nearby, mostly in the afternoon, none at night. It didn't bother us - in fact we liked seeing them from our room. It may be a bit quieter on the side away from the runway approach but the rooms are well insulated so shutting windows will be all that's needed if they bother you.
We walked down to town (Saturday Market was great) and with an armload of shopping the shuttle kindly took us back the 4 blocks altho we could have easily walked it. Car rental was just across the street. Breakfast had lots of choices including eggs,sausage and fresh fruit with pineapple that was very appreciated. The folks at the desk, driver and even breakfast attendant were nothing but gracious and helpful. We will definitely come back!
PS - don't miss the Mexican restaurant next door - great food, service and very generous margaritas!

I stayed at Friday Harbor Suites for five nights. The suites are very nice with separate bedroom (not always found) and roomy living room and bath. Each suite had an outdoor area with table and chairs (either patio or balcony). The hotel's van was available to take you to town or you could walk (5-7 minutes). The hotel's restaurant was Mexican and the food was good although the person seating customers was not the most hospitable person. Self serve breakfast was the standard fare. The workout room was nicely equipped although one piece of equipment was not working. The location is convenient to town and its amenities as well as the ferry terminal.

Our group of 40 guests were treated to superb service throughout our stay. Staff were friendly, helpful and responded to a variety of individual requests to ensure our stay was perfect. Details were handled professionally and accurately, and the staff went above on beyond on several occasions. The rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. We could not have asked for more!

I brought a group of senior hikers to the Islands and had an outstanding stay.
The rooms were spacious and clean, staff helpful, breakfast very good and the hotel is just minutes from downtown Friday Harbor.
Don't expect a water view from the windows but you will get plenty of those by exploring San Juan. The only little problem were the pillows that were too large and bulky for some but that was it.
You will find no better deal for the quality anywhere else on the island.
I am coming back with another group in the fall.
