Room was fine if not amazing for the price. Front desk folks were nice, and they allow use of bicycles until dusk, which was a nice feature. The rooms are a little rustic, but nice. It is a short walk to the waterfront or downtown area, so the location is convenient. It was pretty expensive for what the room and...

We stayed at the Harbor House Inn in September, 2016 for 3 nights. We could not have been more pleased. Our room, well apartment really, was outstanding. Clean, well furnished, and decorated very nicely. Lots of extra touches, like complimentary snacks and drinks. There was a furnished kitchen which gave us the opportunity to dine in if we chose to....

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. My friends and I needed extra blankets because we are not used to the cold nights in southern California (yup, total Cali-girls) and the staff went above and beyond to help us. Our hotel room was spacious and clean (super important to me, a bit...
