Friday Harbor is beautiful, charming and very enjoyable. The Island Inn is a great place, fabulous location and fantastic design. The staff is nice and helpful.
However, I had read there was a view from every room. At check in, just to confirm what I had read in the website, I asked if we had a,view of the,harbor. And they said no :-o I was shocked and asked for a,change. Luckily there was another penthouse with lateral view available. So, we took that one. And it was literally a side view where we had to be in line to see the,water. The 'funny' part is that they have an,article, framed in the wall of the Lobby/Reception where it says exactly: View from every room! When I pointed this out to the staff, she said that "article was not written by them, somebody else did". What???? Anyway, it was a great family vacation and this is a beautiful place. Make sure you ask about the view when booking, just to,confirm ;)
Not a view from,every room, as promised. Read review above.
