I picked the Harbor House Inn because of the reviews, which averaged 9.5, a remarkable number. The reviews were spot on. Very comfortable and attractive, and a very short walk from the harbor in a quiet neighborhood.

Wonderful place. Great location. Loved the area. Confortable bed. Set up is like a small cottage with kitchen and living room. Outside seating area with pretty flower pots. Walking distance to restaurants and pier. We will come again.

Is it possible to walk to downtown from the Harbor House Inn? What is the distance?
We always walk from the Inn to wherever we want to go in town - restaurants and shopping are a 5 to 10 minute walk. You probably won't walk to the Mission from the Harbor House but I would say well over 80% of everything you want to see or do is within walking distance.

"The deluxe rooms are worth the extra price."
"each room is unique. We loved room 3, but I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms."
"Get room 2."
"we loved room 6 - but I bet they are all just as lovely - some have kitchenettes"
"Look at pics of rooms on website or call about your needs (full kitchen, separate bedroom, etc.) to find a unit that's best for you."
