          Very nice couple running this quiet motel in town. Off the main drag of Spring street which keeps it quiet, but walking distance to anything in town. Rooms are modest, but fit the value which isn't the case for many properties in FH.

          Incredibly friendly and responsive staff, clean room, great location. One of the owners gave us fantastic recommendations (and also Valentine's Day chocolates). The hotel is only minutes away from downtown Friday Harbor and much closer to quaint (and cute) Roche Harbor than other hotels.
