I was doing a work vacation with my wife and needed solid internet access to do what I needed to do. Past reviews were inconclusive but I found it perfectly adequate. I don't know if coverage was different in other parts of the property but the front building near the lobby worked well. In addition, the hotel was right in...

This is a beautiful property! staff was accommodating although I did not need much. I had a fabulous 2nd story room overlooking the street (not too busy) , which allowed me to people watch from my oversized deck. I went In April which was too cool for pool or Ocean although some people braved it. The location has perfect view...

Room was very nice, and the location was great. The wifi was not strong enough to work in our room. The room was expensive, and it was surprising to see so many additional charges including "fancy" bottles of drinking water.

My husband and I stayed at the Harbor View Inn for a night during out mini-road trip to celebrate our anniversary. The front desk was super friendly and welcoming. The room was huge and clean. The small porch was fantastic to sit out on! The bathroom was also very nice with both a soaking tub and shower. In the afternoon...

My family of 5 stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday, checking in on the Wednesday prior and checking out the Saturday following Turkey Day. We paid a rate of $430/night + tax, which at the time of booking I justified with the expectation that the holiday surge pricing would be overcompensated by the ocean views and proximity to family. On...

Stayed at Harbor View after reading tons of reviews. The property is lovely, clean, convenient to everything. The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is due to the construction going on--the noise made it difficult to sit on lovely balcony. However, being from NY we are used to noise! The staff is amazing and extremely helpful--shoutout to Dana who...

Fantastic view, great accommodation and above all excellent staff! Very friendly and professional. From the minute you call and book to the minute you walk out, the staff made us feel like family. Our view from our room was beautiful at all hours! Especially in the morning. Special thanks to Berenice for making my stay phenomenal.
