What a absolutely delightful spot.

Wonderful friendly staff, spotlessly clean.

Would hardily recommend, very convenient to town.

The price was certainly right when comparing to other local spots.

Very quiet and close to the town center.

This was a great find for us! We only planned to be on the island for two nights but loved it so much that we decided to stay for another night, and the Discovery Inn was almost perfect! The room was very spacious, impeccably clean, the bed was really comfortable, and the grounds were beautiful. The staff were also very helpful and courteous. I only have a couple of negatives, just to keep my review totally honest (although it wouldn't keep me from staying here again). We also had the hot/cold water issue in the shower a couple of times which really kept you on your toes. Also, as we were on the ground floor and the wood in the floors were very creaky up above us, we were awakened at 3:30am by the guest(s) above us getting up early and moving around. After being kept awake late the night before with the same problem, that wasn't so pleasant. I would definitely ask for an upper floor the next time we visit -- and we would love to visit San Juan Island again!

We appreciate your great feedback about our clean rooms and friendly staff. We strive to be one of the most affordable, comfortable and friendly places to stay on the Island. We are delighted to hear that you would stay with us again. Please know there was a change in ownership and management this spring. Many renovations have been done and many more are scheduled to happen soon. We appreciate you letting us know about the water so we can solve the issue.

If you are staying for one night and plan to be out and about most of the time, this would be a fine place to stay. The nice thing is that it is out of the downtown area and a little less congested. There is no continental breakfast provided . The staff was very accomodating as the couple we traveled with did not want to climb stairs, and she did what she could to change their room to minimize the walking. We stayed on the third floor in a standard queen. The room was pretty small and a bit dated. The shower ran very, very hot to very cold without touching the faucet. My husband got burned from the hot water and was not too happy about it. If we were staying in Friday Harbor again, I think we would try a B&B near the water, especially if we were planning to stay a couple of days.

When we arrived the staf was so accomodating. Air conditioners were being installed in the room we booked, so they upgraded us to a better room. We had bikes with us and they not only had bike racks for our conveinience, but offered to put them in a shed at night for safety. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable with Memory Foam. The grounds were well kept in a pretty natural setting. The Inn is a great value for Friday Harbor. We were very comfortable here and will definately stay again when in the area!

This place is the best value in Friday Harbor. We stayed for one night in July and the people couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. It's in a great location (really close to town) and right next door to the charming library. Flowers are stunning and hot tub is cool -- lit up at night. We would stay here again for sure.
