Great location. Walking distance to many places. Nice harbor and views. Very convenient. Room was decent,nothing fancy. Breakfast was adequate. Server and front desk staff were very friendly! We went to Cedarburg first to walk and take in Cedar Creek Winery. Port Washington is very close and great end to a day with friends.

We stayed this past week while we prepared to move. The hotel had adequate parking and amenities given the building and space. It's right on the water which was awesome for my wife who took her business call out on the rocks in the harbor. The shower was more than adequate while the rest of the bathroom was lacking in...

This was a very nice location. The view onlooking over the harbor was so wonderful! My husband and I watched the sunrise for the first time over Lake Michigan here. Great memories! One thing that bothered me though was the room wasn't as clean as I prefer. There was a black substance and long black hair (I have blond) in...

Lost count of how many family celebrations enjoyed at this Inn. This year, happened to be St. Patricks weekend. Enjoyed corned beef, and tasty breakfasts in the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with improvements to the Hotel-- New carpeting, mattresses, and window treatments. Very Nice! One thing that has not changed is the outstanding staff. Everyone is friendly and welcoming....

Very kind staff at checkin. Rooms are a little dated as is the hotel itself. This is not five star luxury, but it is a clean good size room with a comfortable bed. Good views from the room as the hotel backs onto the inlet and you have views to the open lake. Best feature of the hotel is the...

This hotel was great. It is an older hotel but very well maintained. The view from our room were incredible. I woke up every morning to a view of the Port. They were very friendly to our dog and only charged a $25 per stay fee. There was a small restaurant and bar on the lower lever which was very...

We arrived at the Harborside for a winter getaway only to notice that it was swarming with high school sports teams. We were concerned about the noise level, but the desk clerk (correctly) assured me she would quickly address any issues that arose. The room itself was clean, well presented and had a great view. The mattress was firm, the...

The overall quality of the room was good. Room was clean etc. I'm not sure who had the idea to put tables and chairs in the hallway right next to some of the rooms, but, wow. You don't really want to encourage drunk people staying at the hotel to congregate in the halls at 2AM and piss off your other...

Dear Allison M, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. I appreciate to see your positive comments about the cleanliness of the room. I am however, very sorry for the inconvenience caused by the noise disturbance during your stay. This is certainly not at par with our usual high standards and level of...

My friend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Port Washington in early January. We had a bayside room where we had great lake views and lots of birds to see--geese, common mergansers, red-breasted mergansers, goldeneyes, gulls, and more! Because of the frigid conditions, the steam on the lake made for some beautiful scenes! If you want rooms with...
