8/10 Very good

Very clean and well managed. Great location.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed in Whidbey and found it very quiet (perhaps because suite next to us was unoccupied). Location was very convenient. The room looked exactly as it did in the photos, sparkling clean, and it has more of an apartment feel rather than a hotel room feel which made us feel more at home in the space. There was a microwave and mini fridge, and cups, plates, bowls, silverware in the drawers. We could have used more blankets in the room. The heater worked well in each room and was not that noisy old fan type, so that was nice. (We usually like to turn the temp down a bit more and sleep w more blankets.) Bedroom bed comfort was ok (we like extra firm and this one was softer) but the sofa bed, expect typical sofa bed comfort... prob fine for kids. Bathroom pleasant and had lavender scented shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soaps, and plenty of plush towels. Shower water was hot but could use a bit more water pressure. As other reviews stated, parking from 8am to 5pm is two hour parking in front of the hotel, but mostly we were out during that time, and the one morning in we drove it to another lot during that time so it wasn't too bad. Be aware that free bike rental might not be a thing in the off season so check w management about that if that is important to you. Lastly the online checkin and keyless entry worked well for us, loved our private entry in the back of the hotel, when I reached out by text to the hotel they were very responsive and made us feel cared for.

Good weekend get away.
Cute hotel, very clean and kept nicely. Shared bathroom was very clean and pleasant. Short walk to anything in the down-town area. Only down side is parking is at another hotel location, but an easy 1/4 mile(?) walk away, but street parking is an option. Would defiantly stay again.

I loved how simple the no contact check in was. When I got a little confused, the staff was very easy to contact and speak with. The room was comfortable and clean. I completely expected street noise just because you are right in the midst of Friday Harbor but it was actually very quiet. I can't wait to stay here again!

8/10 Very good

The property was very well maintained, clean, and updated with nice furniture, carpet, etc. We felt safe around the property and we were typically gone during the day, so the lack of parking during the day wasn't a big issue. We didn't necessarily care for the shared bathrooms, especially since there wasn't one on the third floor; however they were clean, required a code to enter, and were kept private while in use. The street noise in the morning was very loud - traffic coming off the early ferry and trucks unloading at the grocery store next to the hotel property.

10/10 Exceptional

The property was very well located for all the reasons we were there. Close to the ferry and restaurants as well. I really can't think of anything that I didn't like about the hotel.
