5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This has been our "go to" motel in Key West. We have stayed here three years in a row and just have such a great experience each time. We stayed in Room #1 twice and Room #3 this time. Both had nice cold air, queen size bed, plenty of space for your belongings and a nicely stocked little kitchenette with full refrigerator with freezer and a microwave. There is a laundry facility, gas grills, pool, and also you can buy bags of ice at the front desk. That was pretty convenient. It is pretty close to Duval St and not far from the grocery stores. We also rented a boat slip that was on the property. They provide a place for you to clean your lobster and fish, which they remove the carcass buckets. Rose and Carlos are so nice. We will see you both real soon!
Thank You Carlos for the ice, our lobster tails made it home still frozen!

Harborside is a wonderful small motel. It has many amenities in the rooms that you might not find with a national hotel chain- certainly for the price. I rented a room with a queen bed, kitchenette (with a full refrigerator and freezer), and bath. Harborside has a nice pool and laundry facility. It's close enough to Duval, but without the noise. Carlos at the front desk hooked us up with a great deal on mopeds and a sunset cruise. We also went to a two wonderful restaurants on his recommendation. Sure, we could've stayed at a chain hotel for an arm and a leg, but the Harborside was a nice, quiet retreat. There are some old negative reviews, which I was weary of, but our room was renovated and was quite nice, especially for the price! I highly recommend Harborside.

We have stayed at the Harborside for a couple of years now and were curious about the boat houses for rent so we tried them for our last week-long stay. We just never get tired of this place. Rose and Carlos are great at the front desk. The boat house was a great way to stay with plenty of room and nicely updated. We are boaters and were wondering how much motion the house might have, which was very little, even in a couple of good storms. The property is usually pretty quiet. People may be staying out late having a good time but we have never had a problem with noisy neighbors. Looking forward to the next visit. Short bike ride to every place on the island.

Will go back anytime staying in the Keys. Loved the views of the water, the pool, coffee. Nice upper deck to view more of the water and the boathouses to stay are magnificent. Easy to travel down palm to get to duval. See Carlos, he knows it all. Jackie Dosey

I've stayed at the Harborside 2-3 times a month since March
(And lived there for 2 weeks while trying to find a permanent residence in KW 2 years ago). This motel is wonderful. Great amenities for the price, which is inexpensive for KW. The housekeepers are wonderful, detail oriented, and friendly. Please tip them; they're amazing. Carlos at the front desk is great. He gives great recommendations and will cater to whatever you want to do in KW. The rooms have all been renovated and have kitchenettes. You can't go wrong at Harborside.

Rooms were neat and clean with amenities such as nice clean outdoor grills and cleaning/freezer space for the fresh catch of the day. Carlos, the front desk manager had touring bikes delivered directly to us, and then provided many details on the best sites in the city! Definitely a keeper motel!

Far enough away from town for some peace but close enough to get there quickly. Fridge, micro wave, coffee pot, clean room, helpful staff, dock for your boat with all the amenities, BBQ grills, pool, covered deck and parking. What more do you want? The staff will go out of their way for you and Carlos behind the desk will tell you all you need to know about KW. Everything from where to go for the best deals for shopping, the hot spots for music and libation, the best tours or where to park your car for the least amount of money. This place is awesome. I just hope that I'm not giving too much away, because I plan on returning and don't want to see a "No Vacancy" sign out front
