We stayed 5 nights- had to do a room change because the shower trickled and barely got wet. My BF had lost his cell and I realized the day we were leaving that I forgot a few items in the first room. The ONLY staff member that we saw the entire trip escorted me back to room to look for... More

We apologies about the miscommunication that occurred with finding your belongings but we can guarantee this was not a theft issue. The belongings were located in one of the drawers of the burrow under the TV. It was recovered a day after your checkout by our loyal and honest house keepers and was shipped to you immediately. I personally was... More

6/13/15: Arrived late evening and was greeted by lovely young woman (sorry can't remember your name :( ) and next morning asked Antonio at the front desk where could go for breakfast. He offered the Inn's continental breakfast but I told him we were seeking eggs, bacon etc. As I filled my coffee cup I overheard him taking the initiative... More

Left note about it in the morning (we left before office opened). Bathroom was not done when we got back (at 7 pm),nor was room cleaned, beds made, coffee machine... More

Between the chipping paint, pealing wallpaper and out dated brouchers for local activities that date to 2013/2014 this place is a huge waste of time. Apparently the two most desirable rooms on the beach are for the help. And they leave lightbulbs laying in the hallway. The smell, hard beds and grungy ambiance is definetly not worth the money. There... More

When I told the management that the beds were stiff and the rooms smelled strongly of a urine-like moldy stench they did not refund my money for the next night. Very poor service, moldy, old and unattractive hotel. Do yourself a favor and go someplace else.

This hotel/motel is horrible. It is one of the dirtiest places we have ever stayed. When we first arrived and looked at the room - we tried to make the best of it. The bathroom was very dirty looking and old. The hallways are so narrow that you feel like you are in a bad movie hospital. A black and... More

We stumbled upon the Center Harbor Inn whilst wandering around New England. It proved to be a pleasant motel style hotel, with scenic views over the lake, which, bye the way, is huge. It even boasts steamer trip on some days in the week! The hotel was clean and tidy, though beginning to look a little tired. There were several... More

Apparently halfway he building is being renovated and we ended up on the sode that wasnt. I heard te other side is nice but I definitely wouldnt recommend the rooms that haven't been renovated. The handle to the balcony was broke so we couldnt open the door. The bedding jad a funny a smell to it. The bathroom floor was... More

I had taken my girlfriend to the center harbor inn for her birthday and I have never see her smile so much. Between the lake front view and the impeccable rooms we had an amazing vacation. I would recommend this vacation spot to anyone who is looking to get away and relax.

This place worked out great for us. We had the end unit near the beach with a water view. The launch is right next door. They let us park our fishing boat on the beach which helped save us 40.00 a day slip rental for 2 days. In two days we got to explore beaches and the towns around the... More
