I loved the fact that this hotel was right in the heart of the town! It's dated 1729, so you know you're living history in this inn. We had room #25, a newer "master bedroom" added on about 25-30 years ago. We loved it! The place is full of New England charm--the living room has a beautiful gas fireplace that... More

We gave up our house to all our adult children and we checked into The Harbor Light Inn for four nights over Thanksgiving weekend. It was perfect! Our room was large, comfortable and charming. I've never slept so well anywhere. It really felt like a mini vacation. The breakfast was too delicious to pass up. My biggest complaint was that... More

After a long weekend of wedding activities with our respective families, my wife and I stayed at the Harbor Light Inn to have some time to ourselves. We had made a request to book a room online and specifically asked for a room with a bath. Unfortunately, this request was not communicated to the inn. My wife was crestfallen when... More

Stopped in for a quiet drink with my spouse for the first time. Stacey treated us welcomed guests. Keep in mind the tavern is small with a limited but adequate selection from the bar but a great place for a quiet and relaxing cocktail. You can also sit by a cozy fire in the living room.

Every step towards this beautiful inn gets better and better. What makes this stay so memorable is the feeling of being an appreciated guest in a beautiful inn. The staff were ever so inviting when my boyfriend and I arrived. They made us feel so welcomed and seemed happy to see us. They were so helpful and they gave a... More

Incredibly charming, clean, and cozy. The food was delicious-especially the crem brûlée French toast! The manager, Cassandra could not have been more accommodating and lovely. Perfect stay for a romantic getaway, would definitely return.

Location is very convenient in the heart of downtown Marblehead. Easy walking to shops and restaurants.Living spaces are graciously furnished and inn staff helpful with directions and generally very... More

My boyfriend and I first stayed here for Valentine's Day last year and had such an amazing experience that we decided to stay again during our most recent trip home. To say that Harbor Light Inn is the perfect hotel is an understatement. Our stay (both times) were more like a stay at our homes (and we are from the... More

I preface this by saying, my wife and I have traveled the world and have stayed in some gorgeous places.. But we have NEVER been treated this terribly anywhere we have stayed. If you don't appear up to their standards, the staff WILL snub you and be rude to you. We had plenty of money, but we are young couple... More

Dear BeenEverywherebutThe, I have to say all of us here at the inn were extremely shocked to read such a disturbing review. I have never witnessed anyone on my staff treat anyone remotely close to the way you described so I am deeply concerned that you felt such a way while staying here. I am also surprised that you left... More
