My family and I (2 adults, 1 child) stayed here for one week, and enjoyed our stay very much. We were able to get a weekly rate on the room, which had a kitchenette (sink, fridge, microwave, dishes). Our room also had a screened-in porch, complete with rocking chairs, that overlooked the harbor and the beautiful sunsets. The room was a bit small with the three of us because we had to use a rollaway bed for our daughter. But once the rollaway is folded up in the morning, there was enough room for all of us. The rooms are clean, and although this is an older motel, everything is functional and well-maintained. We actually had problems with our a/c on the second night; management had someone in to work on it the day we called, and when it couldn't be quickly repaired, they offered us another room, which was just as nice as the first. They also gave us a beautiful basket of bath soaps and lotions as an apology for the inconvenience.
We didn't use the swimming pool (opted for beach instead). There is a restaurant on premises, but it's not really geared for kids. There are lots of great places to eat and shop nearby, especially in "downtown" Stuart. Also we enjoyed a nearby diner called the Cafe Roosevelt, which is at the north end of the new Roosevelt bridge on the Federal Hwy.
The Harbor Inn is a little tricky to find because the new bridge bypasses it; you have to stick to the "old" highway to get there, but it's worth it. We would definitely stay here again.
