Our family really enjoyed our stay this weekend at the Earthbox Inn. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We took advantage of the spa services, pool, hot tub, bikes and sauna. The property was beautiful! We were beyond impressed with the exceptional customer service we received from Tory. He was so pleasant and helpful - he made us...

The staff was very nice on our arrival and throughout. "Spa" is a little bit of a stretch. The room that we were in had been recently renovated and was freshly painted and very clean. The king siz matress, which seemed extra large, had no box spring and was extremely unconfortable. This is the first hotel that I've checked into...

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Earthbox Inn. I was pleasantly surprised how updated and cute it was. The shower had plenty of hot water (for our family of 4) and good water pressure. The towels were nice sized. We stayed in a ground floor room with two queen beds. The room was spacious and all our stuff fit...

For the money, I was expecting a little bit nicer of a room. It was clean but small. The bathroom is tiny. The handsoap is local and the best part of the room. It served our purpose for a girls' trip, but I would look to stay somewhere else next time.

Hi Boed64, Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your stay. Our body-care products from the local Pelindaba Lavender Farm are amazing aren't they?

This is the second time we stayed at the Earthbox Inn. Easy to get to from the ferry. Last time we left the car in Anacortes and walked on since the Inn is just a few blocks from the terminal. This time we brought the car to explore the island more. The pool is always a hit! I even got...

Reviewed 30 January 2017

Visiting Friday Harbor during the winter is a mixed blessing--no crowds, but lots of things closed or with reduced hours. Because we travel with two dogs our choices for motels is limited. We selected the Earthbox Inn & Spa because they are dog-friendly and located in town. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, carefully pointing out where everything is...

We decided to stay at the Earthbox Inn for several reasons, close proximity to town and the price was not bad. When checking in we were greeted by a super friendly guy behind the counter, I think his name was Tory. He was great, he was willing to assist us with whatever we needed to make sure our stay was...

My daughter and I checked in fairly late after getting off the evening ferry from Anacortes. We were treated by a calm, oil-infused lobby and by the wonderfully pleasant Tory. He was helpful with information on a great local restaurant (the Cask and Schooner is wonderful) and also upgraded our room to a larger one closer to the pool. We...

Stayed here with a group from Aaron's Photo tours. Very comfortable, convenient and Great in-room coffee! While the rooms are laid out much like a motel, they're quite comfortable, and you're close to the center of town.
