We booked our room just the day before our arrival. The staff was so friendly and welcoming and gave us a beautiful room on the top floor with an amazing view of the harbor. They knew we needed a room with 2 queens and a sleeper, as we have 3 children, 2 of which are teenagers. They made our stay so lovely and memorable. We will definitely be staying in the future. Don’t think twice; just book. You won’t regret it!
The five stars goes to the front desk staff of this hotel. Due to a unique set of circumstances, I required a hotel in Rockland very late one night and the front office person here was very accommodating. I would return on this basis alone. The rooms were clean and updated and mine had plenty of chairs to sit. There was not much to breakfast (but it may have been due to the virus).
I had first stayed at the Rockland Harbor Hotel a couple years ago by myself for a work-related trip and had been quite happy about the room and the location. When planning a short vacation to Rockland with my husband, I knew this would be the place to stay! The rooms are very comfortable and clean. We stayed in a harbor view king and had a fantastic view! For the best views, stay on the higher floors. We stayed on the 5th floor in a corner room and had excellent views of the water. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on our balcony and watching the water ferry across the street. The location of the hotel is wonderful. In addition to the harbor views, the hotel is on the main street in Rockland, with numerous businesses and restaurants within walking distance, The Rockland Harbor Hotel was also excellent in their COVID safety measures. It was evident that they take the health and safety of their staff and guests very seriously! We were very impressed with the measures they took to help protect their guests and staff including requiring masks in the common areas, limiting elevator use to one party at a time, hand sanitizer in the lobby and outside the elevator, and plexiglass at the front desk. Every staff member we saw was wearing a face covering. We were very pleased with our stay at the Rockland Harbor Hotel and look forward to staying there again next time we are in the area!…
This is my "harbor view." As this is our anniversary weekend, I asked if they had a room at a higher level (hoping to not be sitting basically 8 feet above the hood of the car parked below my room). Nothing higher. How about one that at least has a full-on view of the harbor? No, not all of their rooms are open. One would think if you're just going to open SOME of your rooms, you would at least open the ones directly facing the harbor. Why would you choose to open the least desirable rooms you have? Am I happy? No, I am not. (P.S. On top of everything else, there is a couple on the top level, sitting on their balcony, directly facing the harbor, so everything he told me was also a LIE.)
Clean, and well themed for a Harbor side hotel. Enjoyable breakfast buffet is a big plus. The room was (tipically) dry for this winter night, so you might want to bring a small humidifyer. Plenty of pillows added to a good night's comfort, but with the rising day, the darkness faded too soon. Hot water for a soak in the tub was not an issue!
