This was the perfect little boutique hotel. It’s location was amazing. One block from downtown and only a block and a half from the ferry. Very quiet incredibly clean, and everything you could need for amenities. Super cute and loved working with the staff. It was a most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on. Our room even had a view of the harbor which was fantastic.

I am not going to take any points for the nosiness of the outside, it may not be the hotel’s fault. However, the cleanliness left some to be desired. Our bed was not made properly. The sheets were not even stretched properly, it seems like the maid only roll the covers and tucked them in. That in my view is not acceptable. He/she left the wet towels on top of the bed and were han hanged properly. In short, not cleaned properly. The noise was a BIG issue but we were told that in advance. We tried to use the ear plugs but, the noise was strong. Like I said, no points deducted from that area. Having the car on Friday Harbor is a big pain. You STILL NEED A CAR THERE so please don’t say that we shouldn’t taken our car. How else are you going to visit the state park and other things? Perhaps was the season but, there was only one decent restaurant Downriggers (I guess?). Many, many businesses closed or shutdown. Not likely I will ever visit again.

This charming hotel was just a few blocks from the ferry. Lots of restaurants in the area. The staff were very responsive. Quiet - the shared bathrooms were convenient. If you have trouble walking be sure to ask for a room on the first floor as there are steps involved.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Hotel rooms dont have private bathrooms. Our bathroom was 2 flights of stairs down, shared with other guests. I dont think Expedia should even list this kind of property in the same search results as hotels that have bathrooms, and should specificy "dorm" or "hostel". No elevator, so questionable ADA compliance.
