"For the price we paid I would highly recommend"

"just stayed at the Harrison Beach Hotel July 24,25,2010 and was very impressed not only with the location of the hotel (right across from Harrison Lake) but the amenities as well. The Front desk staff were friendly and accommodating. Being on main drag it was a little noisy but did not interfere with our sleeping. For the price we paid I would definitely recommend the hotel."

"Nice and relaxing. Friendly staff!"

"I really enjoyed my stay. As a dragonboater, it was so convenient staying litterally spitting distance from the race site. My room was spacious and comfy, and the service was great. I lucked out on my rate (a STEAL at $96/night instead of $269/night) so much of my positive experience was due to that! Regardless, it was a nice place to stay."

"Got a good rate on line, Very nice room, will go back"

"Room very clean,across the street from the lake,wonderful view from the balcony. Staff courteous and accomodating. Only thing we found was that the hot tub was basically in the "parking lot", could have done more to block it off with plants or a mural of some kind, strange."
