“Old, but still very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The rooms are very spacious, and we had an absolute wonderful view of the harbor from our window. Linda G. was a real hoot, and helped make our visit even more enjoyable. Every time we saw any of the staff there, they were very friendly. We'd spent 4 nights at the San Luis then moved to the Harbor House. We'll NEVER go back to the San Luis! Harbor House was cheaper and just more hospitable.

Thank you for the review on your stay at Harbor House. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you interaction with Linda was a "hoot." She is a great asset to our staff. Please note that we are planning to renovate all our guest rooms at the end of the year. We hope that you will come visit us again to see our new rooms. Have a great summer.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This was an excellent hotel surrounded by a number of very good restaurant's. A short walk to the Strand and Broadway. Our room was spotless and the free breakfast was a bonus. The hotel was easy to find. We will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the car park would be quieter.

Thank you for the compliments regarding Harbor House. And we agree about the location. Harbor House is just one block off The Strand and three blocks from Postoffice Street. Both are home to great restaurants and shopping in addition to Pier 21. Thanks and we look forward to your next visit.
