I was very disappointed in the Harbor Light Inn. I was supposed to enjoy a nice visit to the bed and breakfast with my significant but unfortunately my significant other contracted a sever bacteria in his skull and needed emergency surgery. This caused us to have to cancel our trip. When canceling the trip I was told I would receive... More

From check-in to check-out, and everywhere in-between, staying at the Harbor Light Inn was a joy. The warm and helpful staff were impeccable, yet unobtrustive. When my wife expressed her severe (medical, not invented) dietary restrictions, the front desk staff didn't bat an eye. They worked with her to devise a special breakfast that conformed to her needs (and was... More

Wonderful, Clean..........friendly.........and oh what a nice warm heated pool. Great place to make your home base while visiting Marblehead, Salem, Danvers and all the surrounding area. The room was very nice with a very comfortable mattress I slept like a dream. Staff were friendly, helpful and truly bent over backwards to make your stay perfect! What more can I say.... More

We visited this Inn for three nights. Everywhere was clean, good breakfast, pool was tidy and welcome in 90 degree heat. The bathroom was in need of modernisation,but I suppose it went with the age of the venue.perfect polite staff helped to make our stay.

We stayed here on our way home from Acadia National Park. The inn is meticulously maintained and has incredible architecture. They give you great ideas of where to go and what to see in the quaint town. Breakfast was a bit rich for our taste, but good. There is a nice pool and outdoor area, but since we only stayed...

Lovely inn located on main street, but very quiet. Marblehead is a charming little town and this inn is perfectly in keeping with the feel of it. Nice pool in back. No real grounds, but a short walk to a nice park and to the water. Breakfast was pretty good. Service was friendly and helpful. Room rate was reasonable.

My husband and I stayed here for the last leg of our honeymoon trip to the Boston area. This hotel was right off the street, Washington Street. Very close to the road. You park around back and roll your suitcases up the steep hill to get to the front door. The stairs inside are very narrow, so we pulled our... More

The Harbor Light Inn has progressed from being a Fall Anniversary Getaway to a tri-annual Escape. The property is well maintained with lush outdoor landscaping and a beautiful pool for summer tranquility. The Inn has the innate ability to transcend the seasons with style and grace. The interior reflects both Federal and Georgian Court Traditional décor genres. Each room is... More

Harbor light in is restful luxury in Marblehead. The room was big, beautiful, and very clean. The bed was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the morning was very good with great baked items, eggs, juice, fruit, and coffee in a beautiful dining room. We love being able to sit outside in the evening by the... More

Stayed here for a business trip for 3 nights. This is a great place to stay and its walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Palmer's and Dolphin Yacht Club great places to eat. Then you can enjoy the harbor views as you walk towards the water. Try Fat Tuna Guide for a fishing adventure. I will definitely stay here again.
