This place is in a fantastic location. My only complaint was that the room was extremely small. The bathroom was extremely small. Paid extra for a ocean view and the windows were filthy. It was a clouded view. Service was good. Pool area clean. Atmosphere very friendly. I do not think I would stay at this place again. As a last resort probably. For the money, the rooms could have been a lot bigger. And the price could be cheaper.

Small rooms but how long are you actually in your room? Great location. The beds are old and they sag. That's the only negative i would say. Would stay again. Our room was mixed up but they took care of us. The staff was very attentive and the rooms were very clean. Can't find another hotel right in the boardwalk for the price. Beautiful pool. Very relaxing.

I will most definitely return to Harrison Hall for vacation. The location exceeded expectations. The hotel service specialists treated me and my family very well. I work as a customer service specialist with a major insurance company and I look for excellent service where ever I go. Although the rooms were very small, we were a bit cramped but we made it work with 2 children and 2 adults in the room. My 11 year old boy slept on the floor on a blow up matress, my 4 year old girl slept with me, daddy slept alone (he was okay with it) and we still had a marvelous time. Did I mention the location was perfect and hotel guests got a discount on the boardwalk bikes which was another plus.

We like older family run hotels and this fit the bill perfectly. Our room was a front room that over looked the ocean so it had a great view. The bed was a king and was very comfortable. Front porch was a great place to sit and relax with a cup of coffee in the morning. We will go back and stay here again.

Just got back from a great stay at Harrison Hall. The hotel itself is a slightly rundown but our room was nicely renovated. Room was small for my family of 4, but very clean. Hotel is family friendly and we did not experience any noise problems. Awesome pool with bar. Staff is friendly and helpful. Great boardwalk location, not too close to craziness at end of boardwalk, but close enough that it's not a tiresome walk :)
