I loved how simple the no contact check in was. When I got a little confused, the staff was very easy to contact and speak with. The room was comfortable and clean. I completely expected street noise just because you are right in the midst of Friday Harbor but it was actually very quiet. I can't wait to stay here again!

The property was very well located for all the reasons we were there. Close to the ferry and restaurants as well. I really can't think of anything that I didn't like about the hotel.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
The good: Very nice place, secure and locked- only people staying at the hotel could get in, good location and a close walk to everything. The bad: We had a super loud AC unit in our room that would turn on randomly throughout the night and wake us up, the staff was not present and did not respond to our text messages. We were hoping to utilize the bikes at the hotel but we didn’t hear back from the staff.

Was surprised that no one met us at seaplane dock to assist with locating hotel and luggage. This should be communicated better with guest
