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

Booked reservation a year in advance, hotel decided not to open for event weekend and did not call us. Luckily we called to confirm two weeks prior, put our group of six in a bad spot to scramble to find rooms. Probably fine in season, but book with care and be prepared to follow up multiple times in off season,... 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

The Ying and Yang of traveling with a pet is how I rate this motel... Here are the pros and cons of our stay. Pros: Great location - in the midst of Center Harbor. You can walk to any restaurant of merit - and Dewey's Ice Cream Shop. The Mount Washington comes into port on Monday's - quite a sight... More

This was an adult getaway long weekend. We were not looking for a luxury spa type, rather we were looking to explore the area. The Inn has everything you need, and the rooms are fairly large. Our view did face the parking lot, but you still see the water, and we could see the adjacent playground and swings and the... More

We spent 1 night here on our New England tour and arrived to deep snow and a frozen lake! The staff member on arrival wasn't particularly welcoming or friendly, but a different staff member when we checked out was nicer. Only us and 1 other party were staying so we got a room at the end of the corridor with... More

This is the best location on the lake. While the inn itself is a bit worn and the rooms a bit dated, the location makes this the best place to stay. The room rate was affordable, especially for such a prime location. My husband and I stayed here several years ago and loved using the hotel's private beach and beach... More
