the location was only a few blocks from downtown. The room was small but certainly adequate. Enjoyed the jacuzzi tub.

Offers all lotions, soaps, conditioners, etc with lavender scent. Some of us can't use lavender. The scent is offensive to all when it's on my skin. Ice machine needs to be in a different room than the laundry room so it can have longer hours (to accommodate late evening events and, therefore, a later return to Earthbox).

Hi There, Thank you so much for your visit and your feedback. We so appreciate it. Where we love our local, organic body care products from the Pelindaba Lavender Farm, we understand that some people don't like the smell or are allergic. We remove the lavender product dispensers from our guest rooms and provide alternative body care products upon request. Just let us know beforehand next time, yes? We can't wait for you to come back soon!

Ordinary and expensive

Pros: central location, parking provided, wireless provided.
Cons: Since rooms have no AC or windows that can be left open and still be secure, ceiling fans or portable fans would be a great improvement.
Location: Walking distance to Friday Harbor ferry, shops, and restaurants. Easy access to other locations on the island.
This is a completely ordinary motel room that has been refurbished. Although the motel is associated with a spa, there is nothing spa-like about the rooms. It was clean and tidy and centrally located; beds were comfortable; bathroom was smaller than average. Room was functional, with a microwave and frig, but very expensive for what you get. This is true of most of SJI as far as I have seen though and I'm not sure anywhere else offers a better value. Just don't expect much. Like many places on the island, it has no air conditioning and in our case the room was very hot and stuffy. The outside air was cool, but the only window opened onto a public walkway, so we did not feel comfortable leaving it open to sleep at night. There are no ceiling fans or other way to move the air.

Hi Lee, Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your stay. Yes, we are a renovated motor inn. We are so proud that we were able to keep the old motor inn feel and transform it into a comfortable place with modern amenities, instead of tearing it down and building a cookie cutter hotel. We are so sorry it didn't meet your expectations. We provide fans in all our rooms and have several with A/C. Please come back some time and let us place you in a room with A/C or a different window set-up (just to ease your mind, Friday Harbor is the safest town I know, we never had any issues with leaving the windows open) We have six room styles and are confident we have the room to make your stay comfortable and lovely. Please come back and let us spoil and pamper you like we indented.

Good location to the ferry and town. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. We would return to Earthbox Inn & Spa if we were in the area again.

Expensive for what you get

Pros: The bed was very comfortable
Cons: WIFI is terrible
We stayed two nights at Earthbox. Frankly, there doesn't seem to be much to pick from on the area and arriving with reservations is risky. At any rate, The place is a remodeled older motel and they did a good job for the most part. Staff is courteous and the place is clean. The WIFI is like dial up and they say it is an island problem. I felt that it was priced at a rate that I would expect the very best of everything and Earthbox didn't really deliver. If the rates were less, I probably would not complain, it was OK.
