I made reservations here because of a recommendation and we were pleased. Upon checking in we were greeted by a friendly manager who graced us with some homemade cookies, Yum! Although the room was a bit dated, everything was clean and worked well. Best of all it was within

Response from Trisha C, Owner at Harbor View Motel
Responded Oct 23, 2016
Thank you ladies kdsb350 for your condescending critic. We certainly were happy to provide you with a total of 8 pillows for the two of you and we are absolutely glad to know that you enjoyed the brand new fluffy type we are in the process to outfit all our standard rooms with. The extra towels for your room you also seemed to enjoy greatly and as far as the pool towels go we provide at least 30 of them continuously at our front desk readily available at any time for your enjoyment. It is unfortunate you did not like the Owner/General Manager as much, perhaps it has to do with your disrespect you offered. May your future travels be more positive.
