We were greeted with a hairy old bar of soap and an empty bottle of shampoo in our bathtub. Not exactly a great first impression. We called the office and the desk clerk came immediately and cleaned the bathroom. We appreciated the quick response but couldn't help but wonder if the room had really been cleaned at all before we... More

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff was great - very helpful. It's very close to the avenue (walking distance) where all the shops/restaurants are located. It is also a very short driving distance to Avalon as well where there are some cool beach bars. Great family town! I found it to be fairly clean, quiet, with a solid Wifi... More

We had a wedding and the neighbouring motel was fully booked so we booked in to the sister motel, Harbor Inn. It was basic but clean which was exactly what we needed. The wifi wasn't consistent but was all we needed and the TV worked. Excellent location- the beach and town are just one block away in either direction. Beautiful... More

We stayed in there over the 4th of July At the Stone Harbor Inn which is part of the Harbor Inn Motel. First we had to book 4 days and pay upfront. When we got there we were informed "our room" did not come with parking, so we had to drive around looking for a place to park after driving... More

Room #100 at The Harbor Inn is a discounted room for its location as well as its "no parking" status, however it offers privacy for a family or for two couples. Our booking policy requires a 2-night deposit in advance and the remaining balance due at the time of check-in. Our policy is clearly stated on our website, the confirmation... More

Stayed with our friends at Stone Harbor once again for our annual August trip to the Jersey Shore... we love this place... Quaint, clean, quiet, and within walking distance to everything... Have seen negative reviews claiming rooms smell and/or are dated; for the record - my wife has a 'super sniffer' and has never had a complaint... as for dated... More

My two daughters and I planned a last minute "girls trip" to the shore this past weekend. We had a very hard time finding a place to stay. I came across the Harbor Inn, and while I had never heard of it decided to give them a call. They were able to accomodate us for the one night we needed.... More

We were supposed to have a rental for the week 08/25-09/01/12, but that fell through, so I found a 2 bedroom efficiency here at the Harbor Inn starting on the 26th. We have stayed numerous places in Stone Harbor and Avalon, but never at the Harbor Inn, and will not stay again. This place is WAY outdated. The cleaning staff... More

Modest place to stay. Front desk friendly enough. Take note the rooms might be smoke-free but there are tables with ashtrays outside every room. Sad when I had to explain to my 7 year old what an ashtray was. Didn't appreciate the entire housekeeping crew smoking outside our room (102) every morning. Shows poor taste, not too mention a health... More
