I had made a reservation and had to cancel. I did what it said and wrote a letter to cancel and I received an email back with a paper with no instructions. I tried emailing and received no response. Still haven't received my deposit and it's been since September.

A bit outdated but thats ok. Pool looked inviting but a bit to chilly for me. Its quite a walk to the... More

Nice people, very family friendly. The place has some good points. The outside is very nice, But inside is another story. The place is very dated - bathroom fixtures are probably 40 or 50 years old. Also, the musty smell in the bedroom was almost overwhelming.

Pros: Location - one block from the beach Clean efficiency with microwave, coffee machine, electric stove, big fridge etc Good room service Contras: Bring your own coffee, sugar, creamer, shampoo, napkins, beach towels - the management will provide you only soap and coffee filters. No coffee in the lobby also Be prepared for a long walk or a short drive... More

Overall, this was a very nice hotel. The room was a bit small but we managed. There were two pools and very good access to the beach. While I did enjoy my stay, I wouldn't recommend more than 5 people in the room as space was very limited. Very helpful staff & very clean.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that overall you had a good experience at the Harbor Light . Just a note, our check in time is 3pm and we don't close the pool until 7:30pm. The pool doesn't open until 10am because we have to clean the pool in the morning. More
