10,0 Excellent
Pros: Staff are very genuine, friendly, and helpful. I love the 'euro-style' of the room. Room was very clean and crisp, as well as spacious. The location was super handy (a minute from the ferry, around the corner from cafés, restaurants, shops).
Cons: Weird that parking space is not included, had to pay $15 extra. However, it is covered and secure at night. In high season I would understand parking would be at a premium here, but maybe in the winter it could be reduced $ or included?
9,0 Excellent

Cons: One of the sofa beds had an uncomfortable mattress.

Pros: Location
Cons: I didn't like how the bathroom walls were transparent so you had limited privacy. I was up almost all night listening to people have sex in the next Room which I could do nothing about. I called The number they provided but got no response. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and felt like a large sack of potatoes. I felt very let down especially for the price. I really don't think I would go there again.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The bed and breakfast was located in a cozy location barely a mile from the ferry terminal. The atmosphere of the kitchen and living room is very welcoming and I may or may not have gotten carried away with Nick’s banana chocolate chip cookies that were left out for the guests. The room was very clean and decorated nicely. There was a heater which put off serious heat which was good because I was really cold post whale watching trip. The bathroom was very clean. The breakfast cooked by Nick was just as great as the cookies. It was fun to talk to him and the other guests about where we are all from and what we were going to do out on the island. Nick had lots of great suggestions for places to explore around San Juan island. An exceptionally pleasant experience for a great price.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfasts were wonderful. Owner Nick is a great cook and the meals were delicious.
Cons: The room was a little small and at times we were able to hear the conversations of guests in other rooms.

I also had my hand on my firearm in the parking lot and yelled at the man to get the hell out of my room, and asked him what he thought he was doing...he replied "I thought you checked out" I told him that's a great way to get shot, and no I didn't check out , I had the room key in my hand!!!....all in all our stay was a pleasant one, nice room, very wonderful front desk clerk etc.... hopefully a lesson was learned by the mystery man employee... knock first and check the desk register for check outs???!!!

Pros: We were upgraded to a lovely suite with a view of the water. The beds were very comfortable, bathroom was modern and we'll appointed with locally made soaps and fluffy towels. Breakfast was delivered to our suite and was delicious. The hotel was centrally located.
Cons: This property has lots of stairs, granted they are on a steep hill so it is necessary but I didnt quite understand this when booking. One of the beds was very creaky. The suite is full of lovely antiques and I'm not sure if this bedframe was broken or just old. Thankfully we didn't need to use that bed.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The cottage was beautiful, very well appointed, clean with most everything necessary available without delving into travel supplies. The breakfast was very good with special homemade touches. Very impressed! The bed was a little too firm for my back but very cozy with a heap of pretty pillows. Esthetically, it was gorgeous!

Pros: The accommodations were more than we expected. We had a beautiful spot on the water. The beds were comfortable and the blankets plentiful. We especially liked the hot water bottles, but would have liked one for each of us. There were three of us and two hot water bottles. We were disappointed that there was no kindling with the wood for the fire pit. We were unable to get it going. The breakfast was okay. The coffee was not.
Cons: See above
8,8 Excellent
Pros: It was so quiet and peaceful. The views were amazing and very friendly staff. Great room size with a great patio.
Cons: Parking was a little unclear. The staff left at 6:00pm which is understandable but you have to pick up your keys from the lodge.
7,5 Good
Pros: Beautiful property. Friendly, helpful kitchen staff.
Cons: The amenties avaiable were drastically different due to the time of year--the country store was not open & summer recreation opportunities, such as kayaks, were full of rain water, yet we were charged summer rates. The satelite television did not work and still charged full price. Numerous fire features on the deck did not work without staff specially starting them (staff left early in the evening). All of this, and we were still charged full price at a summer rate.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in a Yurt, It was great! Lot's of room, a heater in the bathroom, small kitchen area that was well stocked, and a hot tub that was amazing after hiking and biking all day. Breakfast is also included.

Cons: Bed was hard, pillows flat and hard.
7,9 Good
Pros: Good location by sheltered lakes in woodland/forest environment 300 yards off the road between Roche and Friday Harhours. The wooden lodge we stayed in was great and very well appointed.

7,7 Good
Pros: Loved the glamping tents and the very friendly staff.
Cons: The place could use some basic infrastructure development - updates. Chemical toilets were relatively close by but the toilet / shower block was some distance away in the middle of the night.

Pros: Good location, good size room and very nice to have a pool and sauna. Affordable price, easy access to room from parking out front.
Cons: No one informed us about the lack of air conditioning, which took a minute to figure out, but ultimately it was fine and we were probably better off not using any. Lobby hours didnt correspond to ferry time but again, not a big deal.
8,0 Excellent

Cons: the air conditioning is too loud, and goes on and off repeatedly. Difficult to sleep at night because of this.

Pros: Very clean and crisp. Loved the light in my room—which also had a view of the harbor. Excellent bed and linens. Friendly staff.
Cons: My room had a shared bathroom —on a different floor. It cost about $40 less but was fairly inconvenient.

9,6 Excellent

5,0 Okay
Pros: Location is great Price is great People are very nice
Cons: Definitely not a 3 star. 2 Star at most. Small rooms, very thin walls, small bathroom. Noisy interior hallways.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Location is fantastically easy, right in the center of Friday Harbor, just a couple of minutes walk from the ferry and from all the restaurants, shops, other hotels, etc. The hotel is adorable and very well kept. Amenities were very nice. We were in Fidalgo, which is a little oddly set up, but I liked the quirky charm of it. Gorgeous jacuzzi tub. I used it so many times! Included breakfast was simple and nice. Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, toast, hard boiled eggs. Lots of coffee in the rooms. A bunch of our friends also stayed in this hotel, and everyone's comments were positive. A group of us with three different reservations arrived at noon expecting we would have to drop off our bags and come back to check in a few hours later, but all of our rooms were ready for us, so we were able to check in immediately, which was a delightful surprise. The front desk staff and custodial staff were all very friendly, polite, and professional. It's called a hotel, but it has the feel of a guest house. You really feel taken care of!
Cons: This was a one-off issue that no one else will have, but our lights weren't working in our room. They had already ordered replacement fixtures, so I imagine that even the very next guests didn't have this problem. The overhead fixtures were having some sort of issue, so only the floor lamp and wall-mounted lamps worked, which meant our room was really dim. This was mostly fine because we mostly weren't in the room, but we did have to get ready for to attend a wedding, and putting on a full face of makeup in the dark is not an easy feat. Had we not been attending a wedding, I wouldn't have cared an iota that the ceiling lights weren't working.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Very stylish furnishings & comfortable bed. Also, a nice continental breakfast provided & helpful staff. Location was good for walking to restaurants & close to Friday Harbor.
Cons: The shower was in a large jetted tub, which required stepping up on tiled stairs & then a big step down to the floor of shower! A bit difficult for someone with short legs & crickety knees, even with a grab bar. Also, no off-street parking.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Clean nice rooms, good bed and loved the lavender products
Cons: It was a bit noisy due to the supermarkt, but they provided us with earplugs. With this solution the problem was solved
8,3 Excellent
Pros: LOCATION WAS EXCELLENT, CLOSE TO FERRY. IT'S SUCH A PRETTY SPOT.the scones in the morning were to die for.
Cons: THE PRICE WAS VERY EXPENSIVE, CONSIDERING IT WAS A SMALL ROOM WITH SHARED BATHROOM

Pros: Wonderful location on the wharf at Friday Harbor
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Two morning breakfasts were excellant
Cons: The boat needed repairs and fresh pillows on the deck
6,7 Good
Pros: Friday Harbor is quite nice . Drove around the island which was fun . Winery , War of Pigs sites , lighthouses . Etc .
Cons: The ship was moored in the harbor . The rear stateroom is to small , to old and just cramped . We were there . Low ceilings , no way to walk around . The forward stateroom has an easier to navigate bedroom , shower , updated toilet . Higher ceilings . And a galley right off the bedroom or way more room , slight updates and just more comfortable . Was 2 spacious rooms vs 1 in stern . So do not stay in the stern . Avoid it . Not worth the money . We were in the stern . Owner was sick came and fixed a good breakfast anyway . She being sick should not have come on board .
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We got upgraded to the forward berth, but in the end, would have preferred the Captain's quarters in the stern because of the light and windows. Other commenters have slammed the stern stateroom for being cramped and having a low ceiling; but you are on a ship for goodness sakes! Tight quarters and low ceilings come with wooden sailing vessels - UGH! We would have had plenty of room in the stern for two. The forward berth comes with the salon (living room), which is quite spacious, and has decent headroom, if that's what you are looking for. Bathrooms are tiny, but that comes with boats. If you need a larger bathroom, there are great showers in the Marina facility (which is standard). We are sailors, and we didn't use the bathrooms on board, knowing that Fabulous vessel! Sure, she's an aged lady, but the hosts' pride of ownership shows throughout. Well worth the $$ for the experience and the history. It isn't modern, it doesn't have central air and heat, there isn't a lot of light on deck (doesn't need it with Friday Harbor's ambient light gently illuminating the deck); but.......it's a true live-aboard experience with tons of style, character, and history. Hosts have provided an outstanding library, lots of games, musical instruments, and eclectic furnishings in the salon to keep you busy. It's a true, 100% sailing vessel experience, without leaving port. Great experience. Great hosts. Great marina.
Cons: Not a thing!

9,2 Excellent
Pros: the room was very clean, bed cosy and i liked the homyness of the art. staff friendly and easy to deal with. we liked the little hangout pavilion outside.
Cons: i was hoping on a simple coffee maker in the room. my co worker mentioned that the bed could have been a bit smaller and that would allow a visitor to have a chair in the room.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Great location, it's just a short walk into town. Their slogan is 'spend a night, not a fortune' which is completely accurate. I'd spend a single night there again, it was comfortable and mostly clean. The rooms are tiny, but do have an attached bathroom, fridge and microwave. The heater and fridge are a bit noisy overnight, but weren't so bad I wouldn't stay again. No deposit required which was nice, and the staff we spoke with were super friendly. Overall I'd book with them again!
Cons: There was garbage on the bathroom floor, and a former guests sock still on the floor of the bedroom. Otherwise was clean as far as we could tell.
6,3 Good
Pros: Clean, close to town. Nice people running the place. Very well taken care of.
Cons: The beds were not comfortable. Back aches in the morning. The TV was new but the reception was not good.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Love the Orca Inn. It's a great location and price. The staff were super friendly. The rooms are bare bones but get the job done and the double rooms (which used to be singles) have two bathrooms!
2,0 Mediocre
Pros: The price per night.
Cons: The room was so tiny we could barely fit our suitcase into it, and then moving within the room was awkward. The curtains on the window were not dark enough, so I had to wear an eye mask to sleep. Walls were paper thin.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The bed was comfy and the amenities were thoughtful
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The bed and breakfast was located in a cozy location barely a mile from the ferry terminal. The atmosphere of the kitchen and living room is very welcoming and I may or may not have gotten carried away with Nick’s banana chocolate chip cookies that were left out for the guests. The room was very clean and decorated nicely. There was a heater which put off serious heat which was good because I was really cold post whale watching trip. The bathroom was very clean. The breakfast cooked by Nick was just as great as the cookies. It was fun to talk to him and the other guests about where we are all from and what we were going to do out on the island. Nick had lots of great suggestions for places to explore around San Juan island. An exceptionally pleasant experience for a great price.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfasts were wonderful. Owner Nick is a great cook and the meals were delicious.
Cons: The room was a little small and at times we were able to hear the conversations of guests in other rooms.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Staff are very genuine, friendly, and helpful. I love the 'euro-style' of the room. Room was very clean and crisp, as well as spacious. The location was super handy (a minute from the ferry, around the corner from cafés, restaurants, shops).
Cons: Weird that parking space is not included, had to pay $15 extra. However, it is covered and secure at night. In high season I would understand parking would be at a premium here, but maybe in the winter it could be reduced $ or included?
