This room had no windows, the shower and sink was located in the bedroom it’s self; it was one room; the toilet alone was in it’s own tiny room with a door. The shower was open to the room and the sink was next to the bed.

Hi Anonymous, Thank you so much for giving us a try! Yes, our Shaw room is cozy and funky. All the15 rooms in our historic hotel are unique, some are huge with bathrooms so large you can dance in, some are tiny and have a shared bath down the hall, some have a harbor view, a two person jetted tub, a fireplace or a private outdoor hot tub. In the Shaw we used the window to put a A/C unit in, because that room get warm in the Summer. Next time please reach out. I know we have a room you would love.

This was a beautiful place to stay. Flowers everywhere, a great courtyard for sitting.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
This was my first stay in a European style hotel. The rooms were large, comfortable, and clean. We lacked for nothing. Parking was tough at times. (It is an island) There was an early morning delivery out back that was noisy. I was up and ready to explore early so it was not a problem for me. I would stay again. The owner made sure we had everything we needed.

Friendly and Convenient

When we made the reservation, we did not plan on bringing the car so we needed a place close to the ferry station. Bird Rock was the perfect choice. The location can't be beat - it is in the middle of everything in Friday Harbor and a great home base for exploring the town on foot with our 7 year old. We were able to stop in and take frequent breaks, enjoyed our own wine and cheese on the patio while the 7 year-old had some computer time and really enjoyed the "little apartment of our own" known as the Whidbey suite. We did bring the car at the last minute and had no problem finding a parking space. However, we were visiting just off the peak season so it may not have been too difficult due to the time of year. I did check out their sister hotel a few blocks away and within easy walking distance. I would not hesitate to stay at either location on our next trip. The staff could not have been any nicer!! Everyone we encountered was so friendly and helpful. The room was divine - the most wonderful bed, loved the decor, and the breakfast was beautiful! Highly recommended "The Place" for dinner and a walk through King's market for all your picnic supplies.

A Friendly Inn

Friday's Historic Inn on First Street - note spelling! - a wonderful surprise. It has historic character, but modern comforts. Our room: small, but the bed sumptuous. Attractive furnishings. Some rooms share a bathroom. No dining room, but snacks, kitchen resources, fruit, china & silverware always available. Excellent continental breakfast & afternoon tea with fresh-baked scones! Lovely garden courtyard, comfortable lounge, upstairs ""library"" with games, Mac computer, DVDs. Staff: very friendly & helpful. Street can be noisy at night; we slept well.
