We had another great experience staying at Harris House! This was our 3rd year staying here and our expectations were yet again exceeded. The lobby staff were super friendly, our rooms were clean, and the pool was relaxing! This year we noticed their updates - we had adjoining rooms (w/ a shared door between them) with my parents, new keycard... More

We have been staying at Harris House for years - close to the beach, very friendly and helpful service, and family oriented. They are sensitive to the needs of their guests and make every attempt to keep their motel clean and quiet. On our most recent visit, we had the opportunity to meet and interact with Juanita (housekeeping services). She... More

This was a great place to stay for the price. We stayed for a long weekend in June. The staff was very accommodating, even allowing us to keep our beach tags a couple extra hours on the last day since we experienced a rainy day the previous day. The room was a basic motel room with small fridge and microwave.... More

Great hotel right next to the boardwalk, conveniently located, no need for a car. Inside the room, very clean, comfortable beds, furniture a bit dated but still in good shape, and practical for the purposes of a beach visit. Sink is at the end of the room, so it's separated from the main toilet/shower, which is a big plus. Bathroom... More

Hi Dale, Thanks so much for the 5 stars! It's nice to hear someone comment on the landscaping, we take a lot of pride in the flowers, lawns and garden beds that line the property all the way to the boardwalk and beach.One thing I would like to mention is that we actually do not allow pets in the Harris...
