My friend and I wanted to visit Salem in October and decided to stay in the lovely town of Marblehead which is only 15 minutes away at most. We could not have picked a more perfect place! This inn is beautiful and clean, the staff is incredibly nice and friendly, and the breakfast each day was perfection! I would definitely... More

Ourselves and another couple we were travelling with stayed 3 nights at the HLI at the end of September. We stayed in Room 36 on the 3rd floor. I always book top floor to avoid noise from above especially in old structures. The room was spacious, clean, quite and well appointed as was the bathroom. The one caution I would... More

We loved staying in this elegant and quiet inn. Lovely decor, very clean, wonderful pool area and in a great location in Marblehead. They think of everything, good selection of hot and cold breakfast items, pitchers of fruit water throughout the day and a tasty home-baked snack mid afternoon. Tea and coffee were always available. The proprietors and staff were... More

We stayed last Thursday night before heading to Boston airport, having travelled down the coast of Maine. A beautifully presented, charming Inn, full of character yet with all the modern amenities complete with a lovely pool area to the rear. Accommodation isn't cheap, however compared to other hotels we stayed in along our way, the Harbor Light Inn was better... More

This is cute inn, rooms are nice , people are friendly. Beautiful pool in a very nice yard. Very cute! But if you have any disabilities this is not the place for you. Old stairways, no handicap parking. There are two spaces that could be used for ADA but somehow they are reserved for a manager and someone else. Don't... More

We do owe you a big apology! You unfortunately got misinformation by one of our new employees regarding handicapped parking. The parking spot by our back entrance marked "Reserved" is for unloading luggage and for handicapped parking when needed. We do try to cater to everyone's needs and particularly people who need help due to disabilities, age, or the like.... More

Really well managed inn in the center of historic Marblehead. Warm, knowledgeable staff. Tiny tavern, tiny swimming pool, thoughtful room details. A quiet oasis surprisingly close to Boston and Logan Airport

Having a (very) rare whole week away with my husband and no kids, my husband researched thoroughly and found this gem of a town and hotel. We had a top floor room with beams and views down the quaint main street. Breakfast was delicious, and even though we had to miss one due to an early start for whale watching,... More

Travelling to Boston is a treat and one does not think of going beyond the immediate neighberhood such as Cambridge, Brookline, or Newton. But this traveller recommends that one should take at least one day off to head to Marbelhead. It is glorious New England town (hamlet). With the very highesr recommendation spend the night at Harbour Light Inn. The... More
