Clean and neat. We never really saw much staff. Restaurants close by which is nice and the cruise terminals were 2 minutes away. A good place.

The ac didnt work. We sweat our butts off all night. The shower has mildew all in the grout. I laid a towel on the floor so my daughter could shower. Everytime we went to the front desk, it was a wait.. We knocked on the counter...said hello... Nothing, noone..... Very annoying. The bathroom ammenities were nice, the sheets were cleen & the room smwlled nice. Saw dolphins from the room window. Breakfast was a disappointment and i was pretty aggrivated to wake up to a parking bill for $13/night for parking.... Not sure if Ill stay again. Sad - I really wanted to like this place

Location and views were great. I was told when I booked we could leave our vehicle at the hotel for no charge. Also, was not told there would be a charge for pakring there for our one night stay. However, when we arrived, was told it was $12.00 per day, or we could park at a sister hotel for free. Wasnt a big deal, but would have been nice to know that before hand.

Nearness to the Harbor, restaurants and things to do there. The retail area that surrounds the Hotel is mostly vacant, makes me wonder about the health of this hotel.

Harbor House is a short walk from the cruise terminal and very close to the Strand shopping area.There is also a free hourly shuttle to Hotel Galvez near Pleasure Pier on the miles-long beach. The room was well-appointed and spacious, if a bit stark. Hallways, oddly, were cold and not well lit. Staff was especially helpful and accommodating, particularly at check-in. Continental breakfast was presented efficiently.
