There was never any desk staff. TV broken from day one, and when we finally got a hold of desk, they told us (the Guest) to call the Cable company. Then eventually, they said they would send staff to look at problem. Never showed up.

Facility needs a ton of upgrades/maintenance. Old coffee filter was left in the room’s coffeemaker. The toilet paper holder fell off so many times we eventually gave up and kept the TP on the counter.

Right on the harbor!

4/10 Poor


Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Beside the property being old the worst part was the housekeeping service, we had none. No daily cleaning, they said every 5 days (emailed us a few days before our stay to let us know, 3 years w/ covid but using it as an excuse still), we had to reschedule and they never came. We had to call a few times and find the housekeeper so finally she came and cleaned real quick. It was terrible. Stayed there for 10 days and got one cleaning only. A few nights we woke up to find roaches and bugs in the bathroom. Everytime used the bathroom had the trauma of encountering more bugs. The harbor is of course nice and peaceful and we had higher expectations from the hotel to at least have the regular housekeeping service but it was a disappointment. We do not recommend this hotel.
