Quotes
  • Love the View
    We've stayed here before because the hotel is within walking distance to the Strand, Cruise Terminals, Restaurants and... the view of the harbor is great! Dee at the front desk made us feel at home the minute we walked through the door. Very good hotel for the price.
  • Can't Say Enough!
    All I can say is WOW! What a nice, quaint establishment. After reading a few reviews, I could not wait to meet Ms. Dee and believe me, she did not disappoint!! She was so helpful and accommodating all with a big smile and great attitude.
  • Lovely hotel in great location
    We loved our stay at the Harbor House hotel. The room was lovely, a great size and so comfortable. The hotel was in a great location with lovely restaurants just next door. We even watched dolphins from our hotel window in the morning!
