They cancelled my room right in front of me because I asked about confirmation of pet prices. Let me explain: I booked online and after I got the name of the hotel, called to confirm (as I always do) the price, per pet. I got the price and was not thrilled but it's not easy to find pet friendly hotels,... More

Check in begins at 3pm and the room was not ready until 3:30pm. Checking into our room a little later on walking into the room, the floors were not as clean, it looked like... More

We stayed here with friends for two nights. Given the price we paid for two rooms, we thought it would be a nice place but we were so disappointed by the condition of the property. The water view is really nice, but you can't access the water for a swim here. The pool is small but the pool area is... More

My husband and I spent one night. The rooms were fairly clean except the balcony and bathroom had mold. The room was outdated and the property needed maintenance. The pool area was enjoyable, however, would not stay here again or recommend this hotel.

We loved Harbor Lights, knowing full well going in we were looking to save money on lodging, because when you go to Florida, unless its rainging, you want to be outside! The room had everything we needed to cook a meal,and... More

This will be our fourth year in a row we have travelled to this hotel. Most often in the summer months. It's a great value. We always bring a boat and sometimes we invite foreign guest for a ride out to the reef. Even families from Denmark and Sweden know a great value. The hotel reminds me of old florida... More

Thank you so much for the great review! We do have only a handful of rooms that do not have a microwave and/or full kitchen - so be sure to reserve a kitchenette on your next visit! And you are right, if you love fishing this is the place for you! Thank you again! We hope to see you again... More

We are so very sorry you are reporting only portions of this transaction. This person was absolutely irate that we asked for ID and credit card when they arrived to check in.
