We just came back from a 4 night stay at the Harbor Inn Motel and it was great! The hotel is centrally located near the main shopping area in Stone Harbor and only two short blocks from the beach. The rooms are simple, comfortable and quiet. There is a nice upper deck that is great to relax on in the... More

This motel is old school with outdated furniture, bathrooms, appliances, and processes - but if you want downtown convenience, this motel and sister places are the only game in town. The desk folks are most accommodating and friendly. The rooms are small so forget bringing much more than your bathing suit and small suitcase. There is welcomed AC but the... More

Quick review on harbor inn. Stayed here one night. Rooms are dated but I think that is the idea for this motel. Dated yet clean rooms for a affordable price. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was a price of $179.00 was a bit much. For a business model of this, but yet again there was... More

This is a small motel with a high-quality feel to it. It's actually cozy, which is something that can't often be said of a motel. The room we had was extremely nice — the furnishings and decor, not to mention the amenities, made it feel more like a short-term rental in some ways than like a motel or hotel. And... More

This is not the Ritz nor does it pretend to be. It is well located in Stone harbor, a short walk to the beach or the town. Clean and very nice people. Somewhat dated and small baths but priced right and clean. The outdoor deck is a real plus to hang out on rain or shine.

Just got home from spending Labor Day weekend at this motel. My family is definitely used to staying at your basic hotel, not luxury hotels. This Motel really pushed the limits though. It is in desperate need of updating. Has a very powerful musty smell. Sheets appeared laundered, but had stains on them which is unappealing to me. My 12... More

Have been using this hotel and its partners for years to supplement rooms near family who have been renting a house close by. I keep looking for an upgrade or improvement but it has yet to happen. This hotel is stuck in the 60's but priced for today. You'll find the rooms small, musty, and lacking amenities like towels that... More
