Hello, My Friends!

The Discovery Inn has been welcoming guests to San Juan Island for many years.  Originally run by two generations of the Smith family, the Inn was purchased in 2019.

“Our commitment to each and every guest is to deliver outstanding service and to provide the most comfortable accommodations possible by making significant improvements to our rooms to enhance your overall experience.”                                                                                                      -Alexis Tatarsky, Proprietor

Throughout the Inn we have made upgrades. All our rooms now have new quality non-allergenic wool carpet, upgraded Keurig coffee makers with their own water reservoirs, High-Definition Smart TV’s, and newly upgraded modern furnishings.

We are most excited for you to experience our spacious new Deluxe King bedded rooms! With Stearns & Foster mattresses, high-quality linens, and comfortable sitting areas, our King rooms are truly a step above.  Some of them even have original artwork by local Island artists!

From all of us at Discovery Inn, we look forward to serving you as your travels bring you to Friday Harbor!

The staff were all so friendly. It was the cleanest motel or hotel room I’ve ever been in. The most comfortable bed too! The best cup of coffee I’ve ever had with a Keurig! The nicest decor also! Already looking ahead to book another visit.”

Clean, Comfy, and Enjoyable

“Nice place, well kept. Clean rooms and nicely decorated. bathrooms were nice and clean. Coffee station in room was nice. Sheets and pillow were very nice and beds were comfortable. Walkable to Friday Harbor, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Garden area and hot tub were very enjoyable.”
