“quick and easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We had friends in town, and decided to join them for a night at Harbor Beach. We had been here in the past just to use the facilities but never stayed at the hotel.

Considering we booked the hotel online at 6pm and arrived at 7pm, things went really smoothly. Reservation was ready when we arrived. We got "upgraded" to a high level floor and an intercostal view. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Room was clean, as well as the bathrooms. Bed was fairly comfortable, but pillows were terrible.

Breakfast staff was pleasant enough, with a good selection. I ate off the menu, and they were a little pushy that I didn't want the buffet. My wife ate the buffet, and it is just too much food, and expensive unless you stuff yourself. Just order off the menu.

Beach staff is pretty good. They don't really set up your chairs, but they also don't charge for charges. They brought umbrellas and set those up. Staff who served drinks and food were a little bit difficult to get attention, as it was really busy. They could have used an additional person working the beach.

Pool was beyond crowded, and really uninviting. Just too many people.

Overall, this is a mid-level to higher end Marriott. It's not a Ritz, but it's not just an ordinary Marriott.

My sister and I stayed at Harbor Beach in May for a conference. This seems like a hotel that caters to conferences. However, there were families there as well.

I was pleasantly surprised with our hotel. We were first given a room but didn't like it since it faced another wall and had a horrible view. We asked to change and upgraded to ocean view which was quickly arranged.

This is an older hotel, however, they have upgraded the rooms, lobby, restaurants and bar. We had a great view of the beach, although the balconies are very small. Beds were comfortable, and bathrooms fine.

The beach is awesome that's where we spent our free time, however, no beach service. The pool looked really nice, lots of chairs and pool service although, we didn't stay at the pool.

The spa was great! I had a facial and body scrub, probably the best body scrub I've had. They have a good shop with several facial lines, along with clothing, hats, etc.

We had room service each day for breakfast and lunch in one of the restaurants, both very good. The bar was crowded each night with good service and mostly filled with conference attendees.

Would I go here again? Absolutely! I would actually think about vacationing with my family in the future. Enjoy your stay, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front room on upper floors.

My wife and I choose this hotel because it was very close to the port prior to our cruise. We like to fly in the day before and relax before getting on the boat for 6 days. We were able to check in at 11am and given an ocean view room on the 14th floor. This hotel has very many amenities and we would stay here again. The pool area was a great pace to relax as we had lunch overlooking the beach before relaxing in the water for a few hours. Our room was clean and fresh and had a nice sitting area to use while watching tv or enjoying the ocean few. This is a great spot for a nice hotel with plenty of amenities to help you enjoy your trip.

Wonderful stay at the Harbor Beach Marriott! When my reservation couldn't be found, Mike saved the day! He managed to set us up with the ocean view room that I had originally requested. The staff was extremely friendly & helpful and always had a smile. When we were caught in a torrential rain, and soaked to the bone, one of the staff was waiting for us in the vestibule with warm towels. Couldn't believe it! The only issue, which wasn't major, just annoying, was the housekeeping staff knocking on our door 4 times after we were given a late checkout. What part of "we were given a late checkout of 1:00" didn't they get? Overall, a first class resort.

No one could complain about service in this beautiful hotel! JENNIFER at the front desk was remarkable! Can't say enough good things... They even had a special beach wheelchair for use!

I've got to go back soon!

I stayed overnight here prior to a cruise leaving the next afternoon. What a beautiful place! The boutique has virtually everything for resort/cruise wear and accessories. I purchased two beautiful dresses that I wore on the cruise. Next time I will pack less and shop here before I board the ship! The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The morning prior to the cruise I had a pedicure and ordered a salad to go. The only problem was that they didn't give me any eating utensils. I didn't realize it until I got in the cab, so I actually had to stop at the Hilton and run in and get plastic utensils from their bar. I would love to have had more time to enjoy the hotel and the inviting pool; I will fly in 2 days early before my next cruise.

We stayed here for a girls trip for the weekend. Nice hotel with great location. Price wasn't bad until we realized we were not getting much for our money. There was no microwave or fridge in the room. This wouldn't have been so bad if there was at least a microwave somewhere on the premises. The front desk worker acted as if I was asking for a million dollars and as if it was abnormal to inquire about using a microwave! Parking was also horrible! $27 a night but the parking lot was not SUV or Van compatible. There are huge red columns between almost all the parking so it was an adventure trying to find adequate space. I really expect more from the Marriott! My friend insisted this would be the best but I think I'll stick with Hilton.
