My family and I stayed at the Harbor House (2 rooms) and the stay was a lot more than what I expected. The rooms were spacious, clean, and modern. The rate was very nice too. The room overlooked the harbor...it was beautiful looking out the window and seeing the water. The staff was wonderful especially the receptionist, Ms. Dee, she... More

We stayed at the Harbor House at Pier 21 for two nights prior to our departure aboard Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas, and it was a perfect location - a picturesque setting right on the pier, within walking distance of lots of attractions, close to the historic Strand district, and surrounded by many really good restaurants. Plus, it is... More

Beautiful modern hotel with a great staff! I came for business, but will be back to bring my family. My children are going to love the boats and ships passing through as the hotel sits right on the marina. There are several local upscale and casual restaurant choices within walking distance. The receptionist, Ms. Dee, was very helpful and answers... More

This hotel was very clean and in a great location to catch the cruise ship or walk around in the strand district. Lots of great restaurants and pubs in the area. We would look out our window and see dolphins swimming and playing in the water. Great service especially by Dee at the front desk. People have said this motel... More

Absolutely one of the very best hotels we have stayed at over the past 30 years of travel. ROOMS ARE SPACIOUS AND CLEAN. HOTEL STAFF COULD NOT BE MORE ACCOMODATING. Location to the nearby port for getting to cruise ships is perfect. Quality restaurants nearby make the stay even better.

We booked a room at Harbor House because we were dailing in the Triumph and wanted a hotel close to the port. On arrival day we met front desk clerk Dee and she was a fountain of information with great customer service! The room was spacious and beautiful with great views! We will definitely stay here again!

Wife and I stayed here on weekend before going on a cruise and we were delightfully surprised. The price was very reasonable ($80) rate per night. Very clean and staff very polite and helpful. There was a lot to do very close. Hotel does not have a lot of rooms available, about 30 I think but was nice and quiet.... More

We stayed at the Harbor House for a combination business and personal stay. The room was huge, aesthetically-pleasing and extremely comfortable! Ms. Dee helped us at the desk and she was just lovely! She was incredibly friendly, helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed talking to her. We are so glad we chose Harbor House for our stay! We'll definitely be back!

We booked the Harbor House Hotel because of its proximity to the cruise terminal and the downtown. Dee the front desk agent was wonderful! She had lots of info about the area and the local restaurants. The rooms are large and comfortable. The bathroom was large, but no shelf space for your toiletries. Our only complaints were poor water pressure... More
