Perfectly nice, clean and good value room. Decent bathroom with a nice shower. Fairly decent speed on the complimentary internet speed, either. Ideally located to visit 'Karen's Drive Thru' opposite, where you'll find a nice, wholesome menu on offer.

We were given a room in the brand new wing of the hotel, opened early because of guest volume. The new queen bed was top of the line as was the bedding - high quality sheets and washable duvet cover, exactly what I want to see when arriving in a hotel room. Hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant. The... More

The hotel has comfortable rooms. There is a train yard behind the hotel so it can be noise at times, my only complaint is when I ask for a recommendation for dinner the front desk, Jenn, recommended a Chinese and another mediocre restaurant and failed to mention the great place directly across the street from the hotel , Twisted Sisters...

Just finished a 10 day vacation and posting a slew of reviews but left this one for last because OK it's NOT a fancy place. But it is what it is. It's a place designed for function -- to provide customers a relatively low cost and clean place to stay for the night. This it does extremely well. Our room... More

Driving through Northern Ontario is incredible, so majestic and ruggedly beautiful. Marathon takes a snapshot of this beauty and turns it into a very surprisingly well serviced town. The people are friendly and everything you are looking for is available here. The Marathon Harbour Inn sits right at the beginning of this quant little town, and although I had thought,... More

My work books this hotel regularly, and I'm not sure yet how others fare in comparison. It's very clean, but that's all it has going for it. Anyone who talks in the hall or in their room is so audible, it sounds like my door is open. My headboard shakes from the person in the next room. Dirtbikes and and... More

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...
