This is not the Ritz nor does it pretend to be. It is well located in Stone harbor, a short walk to the beach or the town. Clean and very nice people. Somewhat dated and small baths but priced right and clean. The outdoor deck is a real plus to hang out on rain or shine.

Thanks for the review! We're glad you had a good stay, you picked a great time to visit Stone Harbor, after Labor Day, the rates drop, but the temps are still up. Thank you again for the review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Just got home from spending Labor Day weekend at this motel. My family is definitely used to staying at your basic hotel, not luxury hotels. This Motel really pushed the limits though. It is in desperate need of updating. Has a very powerful musty smell. Sheets appeared laundered, but had stains on them which is unappealing to me. My 12...

Have been using this hotel and its partners for years to supplement rooms near family who have been renting a house close by. I keep looking for an upgrade or improvement but it has yet to happen. This hotel is stuck in the 60's but priced for today. You'll find the rooms small, musty, and lacking amenities like towels that...

This is our 3rd summer coming here,typically we do this twice a summer just for a weekend. I sincerely love this place. Nothing fancy, rooms are immaculate, roomy and bright. The staff in the office and maid staff are very nice. I usually request a certain room and if they can they have accommodated us. Walking distance to town and...

The Harbor Inn Motel is clean, comfortable and the location is perfect at one end of the business district and just 2 blocks from a beautiful beach. We could not have been happier with out stay.

We just spent five nights at the Harbor Inn Motel in Stone Harbor NJ this past week. This is one of four or five motels in the same block, operated by the same people. Each motel is slightly different (outdoor pools at two of the motels). The Harbor Inn doesn't have a pool, but is two blocks from the beautiful...

A nice, simple motel in a really pretty beach town. Good, free wifi and parking included, plus a kitchenette. A little expensive for something so simple, but I would be happy to go back. (Never renovated but very well maintained.) There aren't many motels in Stone Harbor so if you need something for a summer weekend, book this one quickly....

When we were kids, Mom and Dad would pack our suitcases and take us to Stone Harbor. We were excited for weeks as we would pull into the parking lot of the Harbor Inn. I can remember the smell of salt air, the sound of seagulls and the welcoming smiles of the owners of the Inn. I got all those...

We were greeted with a hairy old bar of soap and an empty bottle of shampoo in our bathtub. Not exactly a great first impression. We called the office and the desk clerk came immediately and cleaned the bathroom.
