“Difficult Parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We're staying in the Harbor Crest Inn, We've been coming for the last five years at least four times a year. Since they opened the pub at the Chapman property it is almost impossible to find parking between 5 and 9 pm. They used to have assigned parking for each room, not anymore. Between the inn keepers, their visitors, staff, and pub patrons, those staying in this building can't always find a place to park. No matter how delightful everything else is, not being able to park is just not acceptable.

Room Tip: There all good.

We planned a very special event at the York Harbor Inn and we could not have chosen a better venue. The Inn has all the ambiance and charm in a quaint New England setting. The Ship's Cellars Pub is a must while staying at the Inn. The weekend entertainment is very good and does not attract your "typical" bar crowd. The "1637" Restaurant has exceptional views and very good seafood. Furthermore, the entire staff went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests. I personally worked with the Inn to coordinate a surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal for my in-laws and they truly exceeded all of my expectations. Cheyenne, the events coordinator is professional, personable, and aims to please! I highly recommend the York Harbor Inn for any special occasion or weekend getaway. I assure you, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and upgrade your room from a standard to a deluxe. It will be much more spacio...

We were wrapping up a fantastic two week vacation celebrating my 65th birthday at York Harbor Inn. We did a loop trip heading from Boston to the Berkshires, West through the Adirondacks , East to Vermont and ending in Maine. It wasn't by accident we ended up in York Harbor as mysteriously my wife found a great Jack Russell breeder there as well!! York Harbor Inn has a beautiful building that is pet friendly called Harbor Crest.The accommodations we perfect and the staff couldn't have been nicer.The dinners at the Inn were exceptional, and the Pub is a must see. You'd swear your in the hold of a 1700's schooner heading out to sea.

I am an event planner and have been hosting an annual event at York Harbor Inn for several years. My group returned today and have already begun to plan the event for 2015!!!!
Of all the hotels that I deal with from coast to coast, York Harbor Inn is by far the MOST accommodating. There is nothing that I have ever requested regarding menu, theme or special requests that is too much for Bridget or Greg or Chef to handle. I am looking forward to working together for years to come. If anyone is thinking of having a destination wedding, reunion, or gathering this is the place for you.

This was a very special trip to the York Harbor Inn because we were married there 25 years ago and we just went back for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We asked for and stayed in the building adjacent to the inn itself, in a spacious room looking over the ocean. The room had a fireplace, a very comfortable bed and the bathtub could be used as a jacuzzi. It was very clean and pleasant. The inn is a nice combination of hotel and bed and breakfast so we had the feeling of staying in a house while getting the services of a hotel. There is a very convenient kitchen with a coffee and tea machine and utensils, including wine glasses. Fresh fruit was available every day and the house had a marvelous view of the ocean, The inn is on the side of a busy road so it is better to ask for an ocean front view on the second floor. There is a need for some updates, like the stair runner in the house that has seen better days, the AC unit in the window of our room blocking the view of the ocean, or the cheap lamps in our room. Also be aware that like in cruise ships, there is an envelope for a tip for the cleaning staff, which adds to the price you pay for the room. But these were minor details. That said we were somewhat disappointed that the management did nothing to celebrate our anniversary even though I had mentioned it to them when i reserved the room, We actually got married in the inn itself and had our reception there 25 years ago! I mentioned it to the staff and the waiters but we only got a "congratulations" and a "whatever" look on their faces. It would have been nice to have received a piece of chocolate, or a free dessert or any token of appreciation or celebration, which would have shown good customer service. York harbor is a lovely quiet town, perfect for a low key and peaceful weekend.

Room Tip: Get an ocean front room and /or a room on the second floor so you do not see or hear the road traffi...

We were very excited looking forward to our stay at the Inn. When we finally arrived after sitting in 4 hours of traffic, the very friendly and helpful staff told us we had been upgraded. The room was not in the main building but only a few steps away. We first had dinner in dining room with a spectacular view, then checked into our room. We were pretty surprised to find the room was not as described, very old and some what run down, the heat was broken and not able to turn off, so my husband and I pretty much sweat the entire night even with the windows open. The front desk staff had offered to move us but we were so tired we said we would stick it out. That was a bad decision on our part. The next morning the same front desk staff was on and told us they had taken the room charge of our bill. It is a lovely old Inn in need of some much needed repairs, but the value does not match up to the cost of the rooms

On Behalf of Our Owner and Innkeeper, Garry Dominguez:

Thank you so very much for your recent visit to the York Harbor Inn and we truly appreciate your taking the time to inform us of your experience. We are very sorry you did not enjoy your lodging experience with us, and we thank you for your kind words regarding your dining experience.

The inn offers a variety of guest rooms ranging from our more modest in size and price up to Luxury guest rooms, many with King Bed, Water views and Jacuzzi Tubs. Most all of our guest rooms have been recently renovated or redecorated with new décor and updates. We have current plans to continue with the remaining few yet to be done.

We were glad to upgrade you to a luxury room. The timing of your visit coincided with the only “heat wave” of the early season- ( late April, early May, reaching over 70 degrees for a day and a half). The air conditioning system in this Luxury Guest Building was still programmed for heat mode, and given the 70 degree day lasted only 12 hours, the building never had a chance to “catch up” so to speak, to the surprise short lived heat wave. We also were happy to offer another room in another building, as well as a fan for your room since you chose to stay rather than move rooms. As a side note, these guest rooms do face the Harbor and offer a wonderful breeze to cool down the rooms.

I’d like to emphasize that in the spirit of our philosophy of 100 percent customer satisfaction, we were happy to offer a full refund to you at check-out in light of the unique circumstances of your visit.

I look forward to having you visit with us again in the future.
