We really enjoyed our stay at the Harborside Inn. The room included a queen bed downstairs with a living room suite and small refrigerator. The upstairs loft had a king size bed and is where we chose to sleep. The view from the first level small porch overlooking the parking lot towards the water was great. The headroom in the upstairs loft was a bit tricky near the window and a bit difficult to walk to. But the view was fantastic. A very comfortable room albeit the bathroom was a bit "tight".
The dining area was really fantastic with wonderful views of the marina and waters beyond. The breakfast was above average including ham, hardboiled eggs and delicious pastries. Just watch out for stale cereal stored in large containers - they probably should use individual packages for this high moisture environment. Also, keeping the coffee urns full seemed to be a challenge. The free parking was a plus for this perfect location where you could walk to just about any place you would want to see downtown and at Bannisters Warf.
The staff were friendly and helpful. But perhaps not very engaging. Their response to inquiries about dining and sights was to give us the local walking map and tell us that there were lots of great places to eat. Luckily, there was free WiFi and we just searched the online reviews to help make our agenda.
