great location, great staff, and nice to have a kitchenette. We'd been staying in Super8 motels up until now, which are more than adequate for our road trip needs, but we payed a little extra more for this room, and we're glad we did. See views are great.

I will state the staff was excellent, Our only issues were that the bed in the room wasn't good and there seemed to be an odor of smoke not cigarettes but of campfire ?? Also maybe get a larger TV for the room or rearrange the funiture somehow so that the TV isn't across the room. The best thing I...

We enjoyed our stay at this motel. This is an older place that has been renovated in a charming way. The location is convenient to the harbor, good restaurants and the beach. The staff are friendly and helpful. We did not notice traffic noise mentioned in some reviews. I would stay here again.

I wanted to love the Habor Inn, really I did. My husband and I stayed for two weeks after our daughter and son in law had thier new baby. The staff was very pleasant and went above and beyond to help us. After being in our first room for 3 nights my back was complaining and the walls were closing...

This place is quite charming and that was one of the reasons why we chose to stay here. Given that we were visiting during the peak summer season, prices in the area were astronomical. Compared to others, Harbor Inn was relatively reasonable. The room is quite basic, but ours did have a nice remodeled bathroom and a small kitchenette. It's...

My wife and I were looking for a quiet, relaxing, off the beaten track, place to stay near the beach. We are from Sacramento and had a rare weekend to ourselves. The Harbor Inn offered an authentic, Santa Cruz experience without the busy "beach scene" at the best time of year - Fall. Our non-rushed, weekend featured a drive up...
