Harbor View Inn
Upon arrival, I was greeted as an intruder on the property, mind you, I paid $450.00 a night. The room smelled, and the bed was way, way too soft. The air conditioning did not work, and the coffee machine did not work. They did not have pool towels and the pool was filthy. A smelly, stagnant waterway surrounds the hotel. If you're looking for a luxury hotel, please move on. If you're looking for a location, it's great. Oh, they don't sell bottled water! I would refer to the Harbor View Inn, as a “mom and pop” motel! 😖
