“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Harbor Inn last week. The room was warm, friendly, and very clean. This is a very cute place, well run, and the management went out of their way to take care of us. We will be back.

This is a renovated hotel,so not a 5 star. However, it is quite charming with a friendly staff and very good location. You can be anywhere in Stuart in 10min. There is a restaurant/bar located at the hotel on the waterfront with great food and service (band every night). We dropped in to stay one night and chose to stay another to explore this little town a little more. The only downside...nightly train nearby. It did not keep us from staying that extra night though.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2011

I stayed here with my partner for a week in January 2011. Overall, the good points outweighed the bad. On the good side: The room had a screened-in porch overlooking the marina and the St. Lucie River. The sunset the first night we were there was unbelievably beautiful. The room was reasonably priced compared to others we have stayed at in Stuart, and we got the 7th night free which made it even more affordable.
I really loved the location of this motel, on the edge of a residential neighborhood with sidewalks where I could walk every day, and it's also close to a new Publix on U.S. 1 and to downtown via Dixie Hwy. It was so easy to get everywhere we wanted to go from here.
The burger I got one day from the Deck Restaurant onsite was really good. The TV in the room got alot more cable channels than most motels we have stayed in, and the manager was pleasant and very helpful by showing us two different room configurations to choose from when we checked-in. On the down side: this is definitely an old motel. The rooms are small and the bathroom especially was too small for 2 adults for a week. The room had a kitchenette but not quite enough basic supplies to stock it; we borrowed what we needed from friends that live there. The office had erratic operating hours that differed from the posted hours and was not open either time I wanted to speak to the manager. There was no ice machine, you get ice from the on-site restaurant, but it was already closed by the time we got home most evenings. The room had not been properly cleaned before we checked - there was hair on the bathroom floor and in the shower, and I found a large toenail clipping on the floornext to the bed. I wore socks the whole time i was in the room. When the sheets were changed mid-week, the fitted sheet that was put on the bed had a big rip in it. Overall, I would certainly still recommend this hotel, and I would consider staying there again for a long weekend, but not for a week.

We get spoiled
we enjoy the walks along the riverside.
We have lots of TV programs to choose from .
There is a riverside Restaurany on the property where you can choose your cut of steak and barbeque it your self .
May be the only down side is the slight sound of an occasional passing train, but everybody gets that.
The room rates are reasonable.
You can siton the porchand see the sun set across the river and enjoy the breezeoff the river it is all very pleasant.
We like to be out of the city .

My family and I (2 adults, 1 child) stayed here for one week, and enjoyed our stay very much. We were able to get a weekly rate on the room, which had a kitchenette (sink, fridge, microwave, dishes). Our room also had a screened-in porch, complete with rocking chairs, that overlooked the harbor and the beautiful sunsets. The room was a bit small with the three of us because we had to use a rollaway bed for our daughter. But once the rollaway is folded up in the morning, there was enough room for all of us. The rooms are clean, and although this is an older motel, everything is functional and well-maintained. We actually had problems with our a/c on the second night; management had someone in to work on it the day we called, and when it couldn't be quickly repaired, they offered us another room, which was just as nice as the first. They also gave us a beautiful basket of bath soaps and lotions as an apology for the inconvenience.

We didn't use the swimming pool (opted for beach instead). There is a restaurant on premises, but it's not really geared for kids. There are lots of great places to eat and shop nearby, especially in "downtown" Stuart. Also we enjoyed a nearby diner called the Cafe Roosevelt, which is at the north end of the new Roosevelt bridge on the Federal Hwy.

The Harbor Inn is a little tricky to find because the new bridge bypasses it; you have to stick to the "old" highway to get there, but it's worth it. We would definitely stay here again.
