Reviewed 1 July 2012

This is a cheap place to stay in Friday Harbor. You get the cheap quality you pay for. On check in our room was not very clean. My husband and I went through and wiped everything down since we would be staying here a couple of weeks. We had been booked for a 1 bedroom and when we arrived we were stuck with a studio as they had no other units available. The bed was lumpy and old feeling. The shower doors frequently came off their hinges. The appliances are really out of date. On the plus side there is a new owner and he is trying to update the units and is really friendly and prompt with fixing our requests. The sandpiper is very conveniently located to the downtown area and within walking distance to many great restaurants/shops/ferry. This is a decent place to stay if you are really only looking for a cheap place to sleep but don't expect anything fancy.

Room Tip: Call to verify your room so you avoid getting stuck with a cramped space.

In our room, the oven did not have a knob, the drawers were broken, and the bed was very uncomfortable. One of the washers did not spin so all the clothes were soaked. Everything in the weight room was broken. There were loud drunks at the pool area during weekend nights making it difficult to sleep. Worst of all, we specifically booked a place with a pool for our kids to enjoy. Both the pool and the hot tub were unheated and so cold that they were unusable. Management was not around during our 4 day stay.

This place has been around for quite some time. It does not have a good reputation among islanders. On the other hand, accomodation in Friday Harbor is very overpriced so this is a good alternative, especially for longer stays or for summer jobs (weekly and monthly rates).

The interior could have been from a second hand store but at least the place was clean. It is nicely located behind the High School within walking distance of downtown Friday Harbor, so no need for a rental car. I liked the fully equipped kitchen which gives you some independence from restaurants.

I would stay there again since I know what to expect.

This place is a great value for the money. My wife and I stayed there for 85 bucks a night and found it quite serviceable. Plus, the owners are nice, colorful characters. On top of that, the rooms have some pretty wild decorations, and some of the statues in the courtyard are,,,well, I'll just say they're interesting. We didn't give it a 5 rating since the carpeting was dingy and the whole place is pretty well worn. But again, if you are looking for a low budget option, this is a good place to stay. It's very close to the action on San Juan island, with easy parking in the back.

Whimsical decorated rooms clean and comfy.
The landscape was well cared for as was the pool and spa.
Close to every thing and a easy walk from the ferry.
The management most helpful.
Would stay there again. Thanks for the great hospitality
