This hotel was very unique and well worth a night's stay. The property is split between several buildings built into the dock right on the river. Its a very cool experience. The room itself was very nice. It appears as if it was updated with a sprinkler system and an updated bathroom. It looks like when it was updated some... More

We stayed a Thursday and Friday night and were in room #2. Room was nice the layout of the hotel is a little confusing, it's split into different buildings but we got the hang of it quickly. The room was good had a kitchenette and nice sized bathroom, a little outdated but clean which is most important to us. The... More

The hotel was ok. The hotel staff was somewhat friendly(No my pleasures said here..:o). They didn't seem to want to be there. Downtown hotels should always have a lot or garage for parking at the property. Their parking lot was down the street and around the corner for $10...lol. What's the point? We got lucky and found parking close by,... More

Overall, the room was lovely, spacious, and well decorated. Now, the issues. Check in was a long process, as the desk person was interrupted numerous times with calls(lasting up to 5 minutes) other people, and overall, we were at least 20 minutes getting checked in. The room was upstairs overlooking Harbor, and at $169.00 per night, I didn't think a... More

Stayed in a harbor view room #️⃣ 31 overlooking the harbor and the idler river boat restaurant. The room was very nice and spacious compared to the other rooms which I thought needed updating. The balcony was very small but fine for one person the chairs were uncomfortable if planning on sitting out for a while.The front desk which included... More

I recently stayed in Caboose 1 which is ran by Old Harbor Inn but located down the road. Overall we had a great time. The room is outdated but the location and "fun factor" of the caboose help make up for it. Bonus, a pack and play fits in the shower room! My husband and I also enjoyed sitting out... More

Everyone has been very nice, from check in & getting ideas of what to do. Our room is a 'budget' room with a 20% discount with two night stay, very nice size, clean and comfortable. Definitely would make reservations again ! The hotel gives us easy access to the 'downtown area' , easy walk to light house peer for sundown,... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a Harbourview room. Harbourview has a large window, but no balcony. Very clean. Located in downtown, easy walking distance to shops, restaurants & the beach. Have stayed there 5 times in the past several years & has loved every minute of it. Highly recommended.

No matter what the price that was terrible. The door to the room was splintered where it appeared someone had forced the door open. The door would latch, but the top half of the door would not close. The mold in the shower was atrocious. There was no acceptable covering for the full sliding glass door. Full view into the... More

Horrible, atrocious, abysmal, deplorable customer service. Have stayed here several times. The location is fantastic, you cannot beat it. The rooms are a bit outdated, but that's not why I am so unhappy with my most recent stay. I never had an issue in the past, but learned that if you have one they really will not do anything to...
