This hotel is what you pay for. The staff are friendly and responsive, and the rooms are clean. It's walking distance to several restaurants, though the crowd at these restaurants is a little blue-haired, which may have had to do with the time of year as well. It's not fancy, but it's adequate.

Very close to the beach. It is walking distance (a few blocks). There are plenty (within 2 blocks) of places to eat near... More

We have stayed here before & enjoyed all except for the food. This time we really enjoyed the food! Not so much the room. The location of the room was fine (after it was changed from 1 bed to 2) as the reservation was made for. The room itself was not in good shape overall , the hair dryer did... More

We stayed here from 8th-15th.November 2014 after travelling from Scotland and having a delay of over 2 hours due to a missed connection, caused by a 2 hour wait at immigration at Philadelphia airport, only 3 or so border guards on to clear 500 or so passengers.

My husband and I stayed at Holiday Inn Harbourside as a getaway from the cold of the Midwest (stayed 11/15 - 11/18). We originally had a standard room booked but was upgraded before arriving to a room with a kitchenette (hotel made a mistake in our original booking). Our room was on the main floor facing the courtyard. They did... More

Just spent a weekend at Holiday Inn Harbourside, even though I live locally. The 2 story villa was luxurious and relaxing, but the kitchen could use updated cabinets. The view was great, but not private due to docked boats. Loved the miniature golf course and arcade, but wished the hotel store had books to read. Had to wait a long... More
