The Harrington Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Fremont
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The Harrington Inn was a great find! I travel for business all over the US and really try to stick with chain hotels. Usually independently owned are a little scary. The Herrington Inn was a great exception. The hotel was very clean and updated. The room was nice. The bed was comfortable, nice linens, new carpet, very clean, large bathroom with excellent lighting. The fridge and microwave in the room was a bonus! Breakfast was fresh and the Internet was fast and easy. I will definitely stay again next time and would recommend this hotel highly!

I literally booked our room on the phone, in the car, on our way up from Georgia. Not only was the girl on the phone pleasant, but she made it really easy. Once we arrived at the hotel, it far surpassed our expectations. The room was extremely clean and the hotel itself was very clean and the continental breakfast was great! My husband and I have travelled a lot and stayed at plenty of chain hotels and none have been this nice. It's too bad there aren't more places to stay like the Harrington!! If we ever come up that way again, we will definitely stay here. Also worth mentioning, the location is so convenient to restaurants and shopping!!

Great place to stay for a family. Excellent service, good free continental breakfast. Free Internet was very fast. Would highly recommend if staying in the Fremont area. Room was very spacious with plenty of room for a pack n play. Small refrigerator and microwave in the room worked well. Room and bathroom very clean although tub was showing signs of aging. Very good experience overall and we would be happy to stay there again of visiting in the area.

We stay at the Harrington often when visiting Fremont. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff are always courteous and helpful. They have recently remodeled with new carpet, mattresses and appliances. We have always enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for nice, no-frills accommodations, I would certainly recommend it.

Thank you for being a regular guest when in the area and for taking the time to write a review of your positive experiences at the Harrington Inn. Guest comfort and cleanliness are most important to our entire hotel staff. Thank you also for bringing a smile to our staff by mentioning their courteous and friendly attitude. The walls between the rooms are of sand-filled concrete block making sound transfer between rooms nearly impossible. We look forward to seeing you again.

Great place to stay!! Very clean and comfortable! The staff is friendly and extremely eager to meet all of your needs. The owner even went out to get me a beverage that I wanted that they didn't have at the Inn...amazing!!! I also facilitated a 3 day training program in their meeting room. It went so well, we cancelled the site for our next program to have it at the Inn. I look forward to going back.

Thank you Shelley for your comments. We certainly look forward to having you back at the Harrington Inn for your next training session. To exceed your expectations is just meeting our goal of treating every guest as someone special. If you had a guest in your home with certain preferences, you will try hard to provide them. This is you home when you stay with us and the rest is up to us. However, the staff always appreciates recognition for their efforts and it is my pleasure to share your wonderful comments.

I have stayed at the Harrington Inn several times over the last couple years while visiting my mother who was in a nursing home in Fremont. This hotel is a wonderful find in a small town atmosphere. They have taken a variety of things you like at the chain hotels and put them together. Very clean, great matresses with nice bedding, good continental breakfast, and a personal favorite....warm cookies at check-in!! The staff is welcoming and helpful. Over time the Harrington is being completely remodeled. Each visit I have found something new has been changed and updated. My mother passed away in September while I was staying at the Harrington. It is impossible to express adequately my appreciation for how kindly I was treated during that difficult time. I hope to be back again sometime. Definitely my first choice when in the area!

Thank you for your comments regarding the Harrington Inn. It has been our pleasure seeing you and in providing you with quality lodging over the past two years while you visited your mother. It is always a difficult time for guests when they gather during a time of the passing of a loved one. For our staff, it is very meaniful to see family and friends as they show mutual respect and sympathy to each other while honoring a life that has now ended. We are very pleased to provide special rates and other amenities for our guests during those times. As to your other wonderful comments, we trust they are part of the normal comfort standards given to every guest. We look forward to seeing you again when your travels bring you back to the Fremont area.

Inn is usually code for small, tacky, and outdated. This inn was none of those things. I was in Fremont on business in this rural county and had planned to stay a chain motel in a bigger city an hour away- -so glad I didn't. The king-bed jacuzzi suite was the size of a small NY apartment and featured a separate sitting room with french doors (large enough for a roll-away bed), a flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, and electric fireplace. The room was super clean, especially the bathroom which had a deep, long tub and nice toiletry basket. An extra bonus was the wet bar with fridge and microwave. Large bedroom with flat screen, desk, and reading chair. Don't expect high-end furnishings or decor, just simple pine and upholstered furniture and a hodge podge of framed water color prints . Literally situated on Main Street, the hotel is in walking distance of drug stores, bank, and small shops. All of this was under $100 a night.

Thank you for decision to stay at the Harrington and for your comments. We are pleased that you found the inn to "super clean" and at a great rate. Since our recent purchase, we have invested a large sum for the comfort of our guests. All of our rooms have a refrigerator, microwave, 32" flat-screen tv, etc. Most of our 39 rooms already have very comfortable leather seating and new individually-selected art (some originals, some signed prints and other unique pieces). These renovations will continue. Should your future travels bring you to Fremont, we hope that you will again choose to stay at the Harrington and that the experience will be even more impressive.
