A simple, affordable hotel in the middle of a park setting, the Discovery Inn is a good choice for families looking for a place to sleep, shower, and relax on a budget. Rooms come with one or two queen beds, so won’t be a good option for larger families unless you want to double-book. All units feature coffee makers, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi so you can browse, find directions, and make plans. Onsite you’ll find a year-round Jacuzzi to soak in, lounge chairs on the lawn, and barbecue grills if you want to cook up hot dogs or shish-ka-bobs.

My daughter made the reservation, didn’t know what to expect.
Was pleasantly surprised great clean rooms, with attention to
Details. Great locations as well as a friendly and knowledgeable
Manager, who was very friendly. We definitely stay there again.
Being in the hotel business for many years myself before retirement
it is great to still find people who cares.
My son and I had never been to the San Juan Islands so we decided to try something different on a recent trip to the Seattle area. We only had one night on the island and didn't want to spend a fortune. We booked the room based upon numerous good reviews and the price seemed reasonable. The Discovery Inn absolutely exceeded our expectations at all levels. Amazing management, great location, and nice rooms. I would not book anywhere else if I were going to Friday Harbor. The friendly & helpful managers have learned how to create a great guest experience. I don't know if there are nicer hotels on the island but I am confident you can't find a better lodging experience. Thank You Discovery Inn!
