This was our second time staying at Harbor House and they have redone the rooms, which are wonderful. The bed was very comfy and the view is perfect for excited kids looking for your cruise ship to come in. This time we stayed on the second floor above a restaurant which was a bit noisy, but not unbearable. Great rate,... More

Great hotel with very urban decor. Convenient location near a marina with restaurants all around and walking distance to The Strand shopping. Great value, clean spacious rooms. Hard to beat this quality, convenience, location and price.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbor House. It is a great location just a block off the Strand. It is about a 1 mile walk to the beach or a very short drive. Room was very large and comfortable. Room rate was a bit pricey. With tax for a couple of nights bill came to about $750.

Our family (2 children, 2 adults) stayed here for several nights and found the accommodations very nice. Location near the Strand was great. It was quiet and easy to access. My family felt that the AC unit was loud and temperature regulation not great. It did not bother me. Breakfast was simple but adequate selection.

She was very knowledgable and wants everyone to have a wonderful time. This hotel is in a great location. It is surrounded by restaurants. We were going on a... More

This is an exceptional place to stay, especially if you are going on a cruise ship docked nearby. The room we had was beautiful, with a gorgeous king bed and modern, artful furnishings. The obvious attention to detail included even the top quality toiletries sitting on the bathroom counter. There are restaurants within a few feet of the hotel, and... More

This was our first stay at the Harbor House and we were pleasantly surprised! The desk clerk said, "Oh, and you have received an upgrade to a suite." We checked out the room and it was a beautiful 2 room suite with a view of the water. The shower and bath were huge. Luckily, we were heavy sleepers, because something... More

I enjoyed our stay!!! Room 202 was amazing!! The view and the near by resturants were inviting!! The walls are a bit thin though if you know what I mean. I love the fact that you can see a cruise ship sailing by your window. The staff was amazing. Loved the beautiful lady at the front desk! Thank you for... More

The Harbor House is a great hotel to stay at the night before your cruise. We watched the ship come in that morning to dock. Had their breakfast which is located on their 2nd floor. Then walked over to the pier to drop off our luggage, walked down to the entrance to get checked in. The Harbor House is very... More
