Great place to rest for the night. Friendly front desk clerk; very clean room; comfy bed. We were pleasantly surprised; the outside does not do it justice. Very quiet, not on the highway; would def recommend. Close to Pebble Beach by car.

Driving from northwest Ontario with three kids ages 9, 4, and 2 and after 6 hours needed to stop. Arrived around 7pm and kids happy to get out and run. Rooms very clean and bright. Was very happy with the lady who checked us out. I missed her name but she was so sweet and helpful. I did the once... More

From the outside you wonder how the reviews could be so good. After reading many reviews on place to stay heading west on HWY 17 I had little hope. Found the Marathon Harbour Inn on line and it met all expectations. Room was clean, updated and had two comfortable beds. Carpets and painting seems to be recent and bathroom was... More

After driving 12 hours we decided not to try for Wawa and got off the hwy at Marathon. A gas station attendant recommended the Harbour Inn. Glad they did. Nice clean and relatively modern rooms, comfy beds and enough room to get in and close the bathroom door....and the WiFi worked! WooHoo! Staff welcoming and helpful. Would stay here again...and...

We were driving to Manitoba we were on the road for over 30hrs here we are in the middle of nowhere near at the border of N-Ontario we decided to get a resting spot, this lodging pretty much saved us from going insane, had the necessary needs to satisfy our own needs for a fair price.

Rooms are clean, a little archaic, but clean. Ventilation and heating is dated and could be revamped, but ok. Continental breakfast is basic but good. Walls are paper thin and cleaning staff vaccuums at 8 in the morning right outside the rooms.

We stayed there on a winter road trip across the country. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Room very clean with good beds and clean bathroom. Great advice for restaurant in town. Great place to keep on our list of accommodations for our annual winter drive across the country.

It's a deceiving look from the outside. Rooms are clean and well kept. Continental breakfast. (Which had a good variety of quality choices) Staff is very friendly and courteous. Would be my first choice when I come back through this way.

The hotel is really nice, rooms are spacious and everything was very clean. I stayed in July 2014 and really enjoyed my stay. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with advice. Great place to stay.

Clean basic room, nothing fancy but it works. Staff was helpful, had to change rooms since the first one in the back of hotel was very noisy because of ice maker or some equipment. I would stay here again if in Marathon. Bottom line, clean room, clean bathroom, free wifi, friendly staff.
