We had a lovely experience here - we first were put into a room on the third floor, (no elevator) which was a struggle for us - we are older, however, they were able to relocate us to a first floor room. The room was quite comfortable and there was a small patio with a nice view of a garden path. We had come in on Star Line Ferry and their dock was only a 10 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel also had a valet service - a young man picked up our bags at the dock and took them to the room - on the return, he brought them back to the dock for us. Breakfast was a kind of grab and go, however, there was seating available if you wanted to stay in the dining room. It was very efficient and good. They were very accomodating. The amenities were very good - I am not sure where the soap, shampoo and conditioner were made, but they were some of the best we have ever used. Highly recommend

Excellent stay at Harbor View Inn! Room was spacious (king bed) & the front desk was very friendly & helpful. They had spots for us to keep our luggage both when we arrived & after we checked out so we could explore the island more & not on a time limit. They will also take your luggage to the ferry for you but we didn’t want to pick a departure time. Breakfast was good; even with Covid restrictions. They had yogurt, fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs, muffins & a few other items. The room was very clean & had a nice balcony with chairs for us to use. The bed was very comfy but needed at least one more pillow. My only complaint was no fridge but we knew that prior. We did have a ceiling fan however which for us was a nice bonus & my husband liked the heat lamp in the bathroom! We’ll definitely return!

We booked a Harbor View King Room. It had a balcony where it was nice to enjoy a glass of wine and relax in the evening. The bed was adequate, the furniture was old and not so very comfortable. The bathroom was very basic. The location is GREAT. The staff is very friendly. Due to covid, the breakfast was a brown bag disappointment. During this time, we stayed at other inns that managed to provide much better breakfasts than the Harbor View. They did a great job with our luggage and helping us with the ferry etc. Their valets are exceptional.

Our first stay at the Harbour View and it did not disappoint. Competitively priced with similar properties with comfortable beds, b&b style offering clean rooms with private baths, TVs and Internet. Excellent service and atmosphere. My new hotel of choice on the Island.

Harbour View is located about a 10 minute walk from the ferry dock on the main street. In addition to the original main building there are 3 more making up the hotel property. We were located on the first floor of the back building. The Hotel had a very nice ambiance and offered a small inviting courtyard between the buildings. The staff was very friendly and professional. Due to the pandemic , management managed to come up with a safe alternative to the included breakfast buffet. A modified assortment of breakfast items were offered "to grab and go". There were a few spaces tables in the breakfast room and some on an adjacent patio where you could elect to eat. We did so every day (4 night stay) as there was no table in our room (although it was large enough to accommodate one). Our room was located along a pathway which many people used passing by our patio doors making it very uncomfortable to keep the drapes open (which was to only source of outside light). Outside on the path in front of our door someone had painted words in red which was merely smudged from a failed attempt to clean the area. The room and bathroom were spacious and well appointed. However, the sink, which is oddly located within the room, was all cracked. The sheets on both beds were threadbare and too small for the mattress. Flat sheets were used on the mattress but were to small to tuck under the sides. The pillows were all different, very old , and none of any quality. We found the iron in the sink cabinet but had to search high and low for the ironing board. Turns out it is stored under the bed! While getting it out a pair of dirty old socks was pushed out from under. Clearly from a previous guest! Does not say much for the efficiency of cleaning/vacuuming the room. As mentioned earlier there was no table to sit at to work on our computers, play a game of cards, or even have a snack. This was of particular annoyance as we had a very rainy day when we ended up spending most of the day in the room. Could not order a meal delivered...no where to eat. Could not get any light as people were frequently walking by. Had to sit on bed to use laptops. Short of sitting on the floor like children could not even enjoy a game of cards or use our travel scrabble. Hopefully not every room suffers such deficiencies. I can only address my experience. As a frequent traveler the best rating I could give is a 3.
