This is not meant to be a luxery resort but more an affordable, clean and comfortably place to stay! We loved it! I was with my husband and another couple for my first post cert. Scuba vacation! We stayed 3 nights and despite a reservation mix up they politely worked with us to resolve it! The rooms are large, very... More

We just got back home from an 11 day vacation at Harbor Lights. The motel is just like it was advertised on their website. The area was very peaceful and the views were spectacular. The motel has some age on it which means that it's not for people who are used to staying at 3-5 star hotels. If that is... More

The pictures on their website are probably 10 years old. Everything needs updated! The beds were the worst ever! The hammock outside was more comfortable! The room was always clean! Linens and towels were also clean! No locks on the windows! This really concerned me, being on the ground floor! Fridge, TV and AC all worked! Overall I would not... More

The night before scheduled to arrive at the Harbor Lights Motel, my wallet was stolen in Sourh Beach, Miami. The next day, while dealing with the police and the nightmare of being stranded without money or identity, I called the Harbor Lights and asked the reservationist Becky about the cancellation policy which I paid extra for when booking with Expedia....

This was a great motel to stay in especially for families who like to spend their days exploring and sight seeing. Its not a luxury motel, they do give you extras like a fridge and microwave and clean towels everyday. The only time spent there was to sleep, and we only used the pool once or twice but it was...

The manager was extremely rude and disrespectful, even if she had a small reason to be mad there was no need to be so disrespectful. She made the stay considerably worse apart from the room. The room had gross carpeting, the cabinets were falling apart, the toilet was clogged when we got there, the AC barely worked, and the pool... More

Any other Trip Advisor review giving Harbor Lights Motel a score better tahn a 1, must live under a bridge. In fact, that's a good comparrison to our stay at the Harbor Lights. Disgusting. Ants crawling all over our room. Wet carpet. The smell of mold. The window unit A/C is way under sized, and the room never got cool.... More

I have stayed here in the past quite a few times and I was there in June of this year and it was HORRIBLE. The mangement was very rude. We had a whole cottage and 1/2 of another, 2 families with a total of 8 kids and the owners and staff were questioning the kids about who was staying where... More

This place was extremely well kept and tidy, rooms were VERY clean, staff was very pleasant and helpful. They clearly go above and beyond at this establishment. I would definitely recommend this motel to anyone, you can't beat it! The views were amazing, also it was very beneficial to have a kitchen in our unit. It saved us a ton... More

Best service we've had yet! Staff extremely helpful and friendly! The room was SPOTLESS AND BEAUTIFUL! We would def recommend this as a MUST STAY if you're ever in the area! Literally redefining luxury in your motel stay! We'll be back 100%!
