At the last minute, we decided to stay in a warm hotel instead of a cold RV park on Christmas Eve. I called the River Inn of Harbor town at about 2PM on Christmas Eve to see if they had any rooms left, and at what rate. The attendant who I spoke with was very polite and helpful. He described the various size rooms, and rates, and suggested that we "look before we buy" so to speak, since they had several rooms left for the evening. I liked that advice. Upon arriving at the hotel at 5PM, we were immediately impressed with the hotel. The lobby welcomed us with cookies, hot beverages, a lit fireplace, several cozy chairs and a free glass of wine. The front desk attendant was not the same person I had spoke to earlier in the day. And frankly, he was not as helpful. Still, I recalled enough about the room options to ask some specific questions. And, I learned the rates had gone down (perhaps, the offer a fire sale at the end of the day for stays that night?). It was about 20 cheaper than I had been quoted over the phone. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. And, thankfully, the fine dining restaurant was open on Christmas eve and Christmas day. Currents (that's the restaurant) had wonderful food, at a high price (as expected). We ordered room service for the toddlers. I have to say, they offered the best "kids meal" I have ever encountered. Pan fried chicken, fancy mashed potatoes, fancy house made mac-n-cheese, and fresh green beans that were seared/sauted just before serving. The toddlers loved it, and so did us parents. The adult dinner at Current was over $120 for two of us (included 2 glasses of wine and 1 glass of beer). Overall, a great place to stay if you're looking for an upscale outing, with a close to home feel. Charming. I highly recommend it.
