This was my second stay at the Harbor View. First time I seem to remember as being just fine. I mean, I booked it again to stay for our friends' wedding. Upon arrival it seemed as though the room had merely been "straightened up" and not really cleaned. The bathroom floor had several long (not ours!) hairs on it. The...

My friend and I stayed two nights and we would not return to this hotel again. The towels were thin and did not look clean. The shower head had a leak, the wallpaper was peeling, along with the paint. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. The bathroom door was warped and it was a struggle to close the door. The...

if you decide to cancel your reservation double check make sure it's been done. One person I spoke with said yes, it had been cancelled. What a surprise when I got my credit card bill and there was Harbor View Inn.

Came to a wedding in the area and needed a place to stay. It was a beautiful simple room, loved the shower, and a short distance away from venue. Staff was great. Small lodging area but nice and quite.

I must be in one of those horror films where the actors stay at some cheap hotel that is vacant. I found this hotel on Booking.com. The pictures looked great. It is $255 on special a night. I didnt expect the ritz....but I also did not expect a horribly stained bed, stained rugs and no manager on site to respond...

This was simply a wonderful place for a weekend get-away! The hotel is beautiful and within easy distance to a wonderful little shopping/dining area. The restaurants are fantastic! Have a cocktail on the porch!

We had a last minute event in Half Moon Bay and chose this because the other options were three times as much. It is a small lodging across from the entry to the harbor, Princeton, and restaurants. We had a King upstairs and found the room very clean, comfortable, quiet, and perfect for our purpose. We usually skip breakfasts at...

Upon driving up to the "hotel" we were surprised to see it was not a hotel at all but a unkept motel. One of the doors to a room was open showing an old dirty room that was not cared for at all. We walked into the reception area to a room a little bigger than a bathroom and a...
