After having bad experience we called Harbor House. Staff were very helpful and even tho check in wasn't until late afternoon she told us to come on and they would help. Upon arrival we were given a room immediately. It was extremely large and extremely nice and modern. Right on water with great view, restaurants right on pier and two blocks from the Strand. Free parking and use of the Galvez Hotel and their facilities!! Definitely looking forward to returning for another stay!!

Stayed July 2014

Didn't know where to stay, used reviews from Trip Advisor and it was
awesome. Great rates, views, fantastic staff. The rooms were so clean
and hip, beds extra comfortable. Loved the location we walked to the Strand
for all meals and went to the Crow on Thursday and Friday night for live
entertainment. We had a fabulous time. So happy we used Trip Advisor!!

Room Tip: All rooms had Harbor View
