Stayed with our friends at Stone Harbor once again for our annual August trip to the Jersey Shore... we love this place... Quaint, clean, quiet, and within walking distance to everything... Have seen negative reviews claiming rooms smell and/or are dated; for the record - my wife has a 'super sniffer' and has never had a complaint... as for dated - I'd refer to it as pleasant, welcoming, and nostalgic... if you want to to spend $500 a night for trendy - stay at the Winddrift... if you want a casual, affordable place to lay your head after a long day of beach cruisin and sun bathing; absolutely stay here!!!

That said - we could stay anywhere... we choose Harbor Inn year in and year out for the service... once again they stashed ice cream goodies for our cousin's birthday and delivered them once we were gone... also - cleaning staff saved my life this year... lost my wedding ring in the parking lot while packing up the truck the night before... after looking frantically for it was told one of them turned it in... now that's service... love you guys!!! see you next year!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room with off street parking... Worth a couple extra bucks to park under the overhang right outside your room!!!

Stayed here 30 years ago and rooms are the same today as back then. Needs a major update! Positive,is it is close to beach an town. Negative,room smells musty an black mold on pictures in room. We went a purchased lysol spray but that did not help. Next time we will stay somewhere else.

My two daughters and I planned a last minute "girls trip" to the shore this past weekend. We had a very hard time finding a place to stay. I came across the Harbor Inn, and while I had never heard of it decided to give them a call. They were able to accomodate us for the one night we needed. I have to say, we weren't sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. The guys at the front desk were friendly, the place was very clean. A little on the outdated side though. The location was great and they had a working (free)ice machine and an enclosed outdoor shower(it's the little things sometimes :) ). This was great after we checked out, the guy at the front office told us we were welcome to use it after we got back from the beach that afternoon. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: we had the double bed efficiency, the full size fridge was great to have!

We were supposed to have a rental for the week 08/25-09/01/12, but that fell through, so I found a 2 bedroom efficiency here at the Harbor Inn starting on the 26th. We have stayed numerous places in Stone Harbor and Avalon, but never at the Harbor Inn, and will not stay again. This place is WAY outdated. The cleaning staff spent more time taking breaks to smoke and read books than doing their job. I had to clean out the drawers when we arrived and there was tape on top of the dressers. The tv is ancient and very hard to watch. The ceiling fan in the one bedroom made crazy noises. Then to finish off our stay we went for dinner and found that someone had scratched the drivers side door on our vehicle. It isn't something that can be buffed out either, and they know they did it. Didn't even make it the complete week and were checked out and heading home on Wednesday. Only thing good I can say is they refunded us for the last 3 nights we were to be there.

Modest place to stay. Front desk friendly enough. Take note the rooms might be smoke-free but there are tables with ashtrays outside every room. Sad when I had to explain to my 7 year old what an ashtray was. Didn't appreciate the entire housekeeping crew smoking outside our room (102) every morning. Shows poor taste, not too mention a health & safety hazard. Might I'd advise renovating a but, for $175 a night I shouldn't have to re-heat my coffee in a microwave time stamped for July of 1995 or deal with peeling wall paper repaired with scotch tape-really?!

Room Tip: Do not take Room #102-housekeeping smokes near it every morning; noisy ice machine outside and the plumbing for the rear shower is in your bathroom window-no privacy & rattling old plumbing all hous of the day.
