I work at a Seattle Visitor center, and I frequently get request for Fam. tours of hotels. They all bleed together after awhile. My favorite stays are usually found with my wife on our personal travels. I found a new one in Friday Harbor.

The property is a cute, little, chalet

My wife and I spent a couple of days this September at Discovery Inn. The service was wonderful! The room was comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful time there. It’s close to downtown, but also very peaceful. The price, compared to other hotels in Friday Harbor, was very

Hi! I'm going to try and be brief because there's not too much to say or add to all the other great reviews about this place. I stayed here on November 12th for only one night. I traveled for work and travel mostly every week in the US and Canada. Usually I stay at Hilton/Holi

I mistakenly booked 2 rooms for the night of 5/18/2017. I mean't to book the rooms for two nights, 5/18/2016 and 5/19/2016 leaving on 5/20/2016. Can you help me make this change?
Thank you for booking a stay at our motel. If you booked directly on our website please feel free to contact our front desk at 888-754-0034 and they will be happy to assist in making the change. If you booked through another agency you will need to go through them to change your reservation. Warm regards, Kim Gabriel

We have three teen age grandchildren do you have a cot available?
Each cabin has its own number of beds. Check out their website for cottage descriptions, or call them directly.

Do they serve complimentary breakfast?
They offer coffee in the registration office. And maybe a light snack. But there are multiple options nearby in town. We would go to the small grocery store and pick up breakfast goods then store them in the fridge and heat them up in the microwave. The grocery store has a well stocked deli that includes fresh made breakfast sandwiches, etc.

We are planing on using your hotel as our base for our visit to the San Juan Islands. Is there ferry serivce for Friday harbor to the other islands??? thanks
Yes. You can go to Orcas, Lopez and even Victoria from San Juan. It is nice to be able to do a day trip to Lopez (biking is great as it is flat) and Orcas is just an interesting island.

We have a 17lb 1 1/2 year old King Charles cavalier. Would he be allowed to stay as well? He sleeps in his kennel and would never be left in the room without us :)
I'm sorry but they don't allow dogs.
