Great Location. The front desk service was good. The inn is very family friendly. Also very quiet and close to beaches. Cute local, nice restaurants. We felt that the cleaning staff also was very accommodating.

We were tired of the big corporation Covid-19 nonsense, so we stayed 1 night here. Reasonable rates. Front desk lady super sweet and helpful. Rooms clean. Close to the harbor and restaurants. Nice and neat. Comfy bed.

We booked a remodeled Queen room for one night. When we arrived the bed was dirty, the chair in the room was filthy and the heater didn’t work and it was a Full not a Queen. We complained and they said they could change our room but it would $20 more. After some arguments they moved us to non-remodeled room. This room was also dirty. There weren’t any washcloths and there was a high pitched noise that we couldn’t find the source of. Around 4 am the pipes began gurgling. The bed was hard as a rock and lumpy. We complained but they didn’t care.

My aging father and I decided to meet up to see each other in our old stomping ground at the harbor jetty and it's beaches.... where he raised me. The Harbor View Inn is right down the street from our previous neighborhood and has a perfect view looking out on the harbors jetty rocks we used to fish on. The room was very clean, big and had 2 quite comfy beds indeed! Plus, the view is great! Another good thing was the nice gentleman in the office that made us feel right at home. The price was excellent for the value, and the free breakfast offered breakfast sandwiches which were very big and yummy! And yogurt..etc. This place is a hidden gem and should have more stars..this is why I want people to know how much value they will get for their money, as well as a very kind-nature customer service team. The man that checked us in and out was the nicest I have ever met at a motel. People like this should never be over-looked when comparing prices and places, as people like him make others feel right at home too. Princeton-by-the Sea is right out the window across the highway, but back enough off the hwy, and El Granada (were motel is on mountain side of hwy), has a grocery store next door and a coffee house with food...El Granada is an awesome, small and peaceful community which reflects upon this motel. Stay here. You will be glad you did! Maverick's is right across the street..the best place in the World to me and my Dad...this area has not changed much since the 1970's thank God.

Cons: 1. Noisy and busy street, no soundproofing.. 2. Broken furniture. 3. Bad mattress. 4. Black Mold and mildew growing on windows and walls. 5. Front desk staff refused to get us extra towels- told us to “wait until cleaning staff comes in at 8am”. Request made at 630am because we needed to get to an event. We spoke to the relief desk person around 7 and asked what the night desk persons problem was, She replied “ I asked him the same question...he’s new”- wrong answer! 6. Strong carpet fresh chemical smell that never went away. Had to “try” to sleep with the windows open because of smell. 7. Window crank handle broken. 8. Overpriced by 50% How this place has stayed in business in this quaint town is beyond me......All in all, a horrible nights sleep- stay away
