I usually stay at Kala Point or a Bed and Breakfast when I'm in Port Townsend. This time there wasn't any room at either place so after looking around I found the Harborside. I didn't expect a lot because the price was low and this is high season. I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff was great and the room... More

A bit dated but good value and location. We didn't find the Internet access a problem. Enjoyed the Harbor view and convenient location. Has a pool/spa and allowed our dog. Rooms do have a slightly musty odor but nothing serious. It is clean and reasonably well maintained. Front desk staff were friendly and helped correct an error with our booking... More

We stayed here one night after our fun whale watching tour we took in town. The room was great and had a great view. The pool and spa were open. However, the spa was lukewarm. The pool was the same temperature. So we didn't stay long at the pool. The breakfast was good in the morning with some hot and... More

Their internet service is a nightmare. If you decide to stay here, be sure to spray down every single item with Lysol. It might be a good idea to pick up some Fabreze, about 4 small but strong candles & matches and a counter air freshener. Whoever owns it should be ashamed of themselves. The location is fantastic and the... More

Since you have no A/C and the room smells, yes I do. Port Townsend, WA is a wonderful place to spend the 4th of July. The Harborside Inn is not. It is an average hotel that delivers below average value. Let's review...starting with the upside. The rooms really do look right out over the harbor. If I were here looking... More

They use very cheap cleaning supplies. The rooms smell terrible! The owners are using cheap, harmful cleaning products. The owners and the front desk people know this but will pretend they have never had a complaint before. They will find another room if you complain enough. The new room will not smell any better. Ask why the rooms are all... More

We stayed for one evening and we were disappointed in how worn and old it was. Our balcony was really filthy. Had to clean the chairs before we sat and the floor was dirty. Had a very musty smell... The view was nice and the staff accommodating. The breakfast was quite skimpy, so we skipped on that. We just felt... More

Was able to reserve a good room with a reasonable view at the last minute. The staff was very accommodating. View is of the boat yard and marina across the street, with the water beyond that. It's sort of an industrial area, but it's a refreshing change. A little far to walk to old town, maybe a mile away, but... More

The outside has a very nice new paint job. The inside of the room needs a big make over! Very worn bathroom floor. Needs major work. The rug throughout was clean. The breakfast one of the skimpiest I've seen in a long time. They also keep that area blocked off, so no where to sit and visit if there are... More

The Harborside Inn is a pretty basic stack of rectangles. No Victorian influence here, more Howard Johnsonian. Nice views on the waterfront side and in generally a pleasant marina environment. Clean though somewhat worn in places with all the needed appliances. Very comfortable king size bed. The complimentary breakfast was kinda ok. Waffles being the main focus, with bananas, oranges,...
