We just spent five nights at the Harbor Inn Motel in Stone Harbor NJ this past week. This is one of four or five motels in the same block, operated by the same people. Each motel is slightly different (outdoor pools at two of the motels). The Harbor Inn doesn't have a pool, but is two blocks from the beautiful... More

A nice, simple motel in a really pretty beach town. Good, free wifi and parking included, plus a kitchenette. A little expensive for something so simple, but I would be happy to go back. (Never renovated but very well maintained.) There aren't many motels in Stone Harbor so if you need something for a summer weekend, book this one quickly.... More

When we were kids, Mom and Dad would pack our suitcases and take us to Stone Harbor. We were excited for weeks as we would pull into the parking lot of the Harbor Inn. I can remember the smell of salt air, the sound of seagulls and the welcoming smiles of the owners of the Inn. I got all those... More

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
