This is the first time I have written a hotel review. I was so impressed with the Harrington Inn that I had to write. You will not go wrong staying here. It is very clean. I usually bring wipes with me when we travel and wipe everything down and I did not feel I had to do that here. We... More

Thank you choosing the Harrington Inn hotel for your first review and we are as pleased with your comments as you were with your stay. As clean is the only criteria for the condition of a room and not the time taken to clean a room, guest comments directed towards the work of the cleaning staff are always appreciated. FYI,... More

This was our second time staying at the Harrington, and again it did not disappoint. Clean, modern, well-maintained facilities; heated pool; good breakfast (Jimmy Dean breakfast muffins, bagels, toast, fruit, yogurt, pastries, etc); excellent, attentive staff; and the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on. Coffee, tea, juices are available around the clock, and delicious fresh cookies are at... More

This is everything that a motel should be - clean, comfortable, quiet, and all on one floor. There are no elevators or stairs to contend with. Special perks include coffee, tea, milk and yogurt available 24/7 to all guests. The Otis Spunkmeyer cookies served every afternoon are enough to make us want to return! A perfect place to stay in...

I liked this hotel. This hotel offered everything we needed for our short stay there. Nice and clean, with very friendly staff. The breakfast area is clean and very well organized. The pool area in the back looked pretty nice as well. I would recommend this hotel.
