We even saw several Dolphins playing in the water right outside the hotel! If your cruising, this hotel is a 3 minute walk to the cruise port and the hotel will allow...

Booked a room before our cruise since it was right next to the loading dock. When we first checked in the front desk person Glen had the personality of a brillo pad. Dee on the other hand was fantastic, made suggestions of where to go and what to do. She made our night there more enjoyable and made it to...

Ms. Dee was exceptional. Made us feel wanted and she made recommendations for food and fun. She made room for our luggage after our cruise, while we were waiting to have Easter Brunch and get our ride back to the airport. Great room with two queen beds and facing our ship when we woke up in the morning. My wife...

We booked a night here in mid-April before our cruise. Hotel has a great location. Man working behind the desk at check-in shouldn't be in the customer service business. Room was nice. Never did figure out how the room lights worked!Number of good, albeit expensive restaurants in the immediate area.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Dee. She was very helpful and personable. My wife were interested in having a weekend away from home with our daughter and this was a great spot. Great food options (you get an awesome discount staying at the harbor house for surrounding eateries). Very close to the historic downtown area. Many great places to...

The Harbor House was a great place to stay before our cruise. The location was perfect – easy walking distance to restaurants, and it was fun to watch our ship coming into port. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. There was a mini-refrigerator and bottled water. The bathroom is very modern - shower only (no tub) and...

We love this little place on the harbor. Close to the Strand. Easy to walk places for food and drink. Dee at the front desk is top of the line in customer service. She knows about all the hot spots to check out. We look forward to our next visit.
