General Information

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you pet friendly?

Although we love animals, not everyone does. Therefore we ask that you please leave your pet at home during your visit to the Harbor House Inn. This No-Pets policy applies to Emotional Support Animals, Comfort Animals and Therapy Animals.

What about Service Animals?

The Harbor House Inn complies with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) allowing access for all individuals to public places; therefore we do allow working service dogs to accompany our guests. Service animals are individually trained to perform work or tasks and are not allowed to be left in the room unattended. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.

Under ADA regulations that became effective on March 15, 2011, there are no protections for emotional support animals in terms of access to public accommodations. Should you arrive to our property with a pet that is not a service animal, you will be denied check-in and will forfeit the first night’s room and tax if the room is unable to be resold.

Thank you for your cooperation and consideration of all of our guests.

Do any rooms have ocean views?

The Harbor House Inn is located one short block from West Beach, therefore our rooms do not have ocean views. The beach is only a 30 second walk from our property and we offer complimentary use of our beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. It doesn’t get much better than that.

What is your parking situation?

We offer free parking for small to midsize vehicles. Oversized SUVs and trucks will likely need to use available street parking with the exception of guests reserving our Deluxe King Studio rooms, which have their own dedicated parking spaces.

Can we get an early check-in?

Check-in time is guaranteed at 3:00 p.m.
We do our best to offer an early check-in whenever possible however we are not able to guarantee the request. 

What about a late check-out?

Check-out time is 11:00 a.m. and late check-out requests are subject to approval on the day of departure.

Do you have breakfast?

We do not serve breakfast on property however there are many great options within a few minutes walk. For reservations of two nights or more, we provide a welcome breakfast basket that contains fresh baked banana nut bread, fruit, juice, water and many other delicious snacks. Guests staying a single night are welcome to purchase the basket for $20. Please select this option during the booking process or call us anytime before your arrival to add on a welcome breakfast basket.

Do your rooms accommodate families?

All of our rooms accommodate two guests with the exception of Room 118B, which will accommodate an extra adult or child for an additional charge.  Should you arrive to our property with more than two guests, children included, only two will be permitted to stay in the room and any additional guests must find separate accommodations.

Does your property accept groups?

Unfortunately our property is not suited to accommodate groups or large parties. Groups desiring to book more than three rooms are required to contact the property manager for approval. 

What is your party policy?
