#3 of 5 B&Bs / Inns in Staten Island
We are located on the New York Harbor with a stunning view of the Manhattan Skyline as well as the Verrazano Bridge. The NYC marathon starts at the base of the Verrazano Bridge on the Staten Island. It is a 15 minute walk from the Harbor House Bed and Breakfast to the starting line of the race. There is a bus (the S 51)one block away that stops at the St. George Ferry Terminal. You can ride the ferry for free and arrive in downtown Manhattan in 20 minutes. It is a short walk to Ground Zero from there.

Looking at their web site, rms looked nice.When we arrived, we were startled because the front door was covered with piece of wood. As soon as you walked into the cramped, combo "dining rm" check in "desk", there was a table to rt and in front was the "desk"- person behind a door , checked us in, off to left was a shelf with breakfast items-spoons, forks, a coffee maker. This they considered the breakfast area. Breakfast consisted of what looked like bagels, donuts,(in plastic containers) from a supermarket, cereal in plastic containers. The hall bathrm had no soap. Upon entering room(door did not stay closed unless locked) I saw -towel stand was rusted as was the radiator cover, bathroom shower floor had dark stains, sheets and spread looked very old, and worn as did the curtains which were not ironed well, curtain rod was crooked, closet had a mirror which was cracked, sink caulking was sloppy, part of window frame not painted, window sills were dirty, wood towel holder was worn, bed creaked badly, furniture was not eclectic, it was cheap looking and unmatched. For this they charged $170. I sent a letter along with photos to the owners over 3 weeks ago and have not received a response, despite asking for one. I called the inn, to inquire if the letter was received. The manager offered no apologies, just excuses that it was an old place and that we then should have stayed elsewhere, and at this point he could do nothing to refund all or part of the money.

Our first trip to the northeast before we boarded our ship. And, it was truly a highlight of our entire trip. Mo, the proprietor was gracious, interesting, well read, accommodating--don't expect a fancy hotel with lots of amenities. Beds are "used" but it's clean, the location is everything you could ever want. The prices are w/i budgets. The breakfast is continental so if you want something hot--don't expect it. Coffee excellent. Recommendations for restaurants w/i walking distance outstanding. Could not possibly have been more pleased. Thank you Mo.

New York City, the 2nd biggest city in the world, can be intimidating for a mother travelling alone with her two kids. Luckily, while looking for an affordable and quiet place we meet Moe, the innkeeper or the Staten Island Harbor House. Moe gave us good tips on visiting New York and made our stay a memorable one. This was my first experience in a bed in breakfast and will most probably not be my last. I have often stayed in hotels with my children, but this was a nice new experience were we really had the impression that we had made a new friend ready to help us. You just can’t get that kind of service in a hotel. Plus we had a great view of Manhattan from our bedroom that was just a hop away with the free Staten Island Ferry, it’s the one that appears in the new Spiderman film… and it passes in front of the Statue of Liberty WOW.

I stayed for two nights at the Harbor House and it was a wonderful, relaxing stay. Very clean rooms, friendly owner and the view was spectacular. The owner is also very helpful and welcoming. I usually choose to stay at bed and breakfast inns because you feel a sense of warmth that hotels don't offer. The Harbor House did not disappoint! It's in a really great location, and cannot stress enough how gorgeous the view is!! Will definitely book again!

My daughter (11) and I traveled to Staten Island as an unplanned road trip. When looking for a place to stay near the city I was looking for the following: free parking, clean accommodations, continental breakfast included and a fair price for the stay. Harbor House had all of the above and then some! We arrived rather early and since I wanted to scope the place out before booking, found ourselves outside at 7am. I called the booking number on the outside sign and a friendly man answered and informed me they’d return my call with rates an availability at 8am when they opened for daily business. We walked to breakfast a block up from the B&B (Js on The Bay, amazing). A little after 8 the innkeeper called back and informed me he had one room available; 3rd floor, private bath for $119/night. We booked and I was told checkin is at 2pm. No problem, we were leaving to sightsee and would leave the car parked and take the Staten Island Ferry which is a 20 minute walk or a 7 minute ($10) Uber away. The innkeeper (Moe), informed me to just give him a call when we’d be back to checkin and that normal checkin hours are until 9pm. After exploring the city and getting lost all day, I found my phone dead around 7:30pm. We boarded the Ferry to head back and I was able to charge my phone on the Ferry. Yes, they have outlets to do so. When my phone came back on, I had a voicemail from Moe calling to check and see if we were alright since he hadn’t heard back from us after I told him we’d only be gone a few hours. Upon arriving, we met Moe at the Front Desk where we paid and received our keys. One key for the main door, one for our room. There is no elevator but it’s really not needed considering the walk to the third floor (any all floors) was an immersive, colorful experience as the place is decorated so quirkily & beautiful. When we got to our room we were ecstatic with the full wall windows and our awesome view of the Harbor below. The room included our own private bath and also had its own air conditioner for us to control. Everything in the room was spotless and well kept. We slept in the next day because the bed was much comfier than I had expected it to be so we missed the Continental Breakfast the following morning. Our last morning there we made it down for breakfast on time and the breakfast spread was super nice with croissants, cinnamon bread, cherries, various cereals, milk & OJ. It was a self serve setup and was super convenient. All in all, I’d definitely recommend the Harbor House and we will absolutely be booking there again for our next NYC vacation. The house is located on a corner lot in a super safe neighborhood with a market, liquor store, various restaurants and bus and ferry stops all within walking distance.
