We arrived late after sailing and motoring for 6 hours from Waukegan to find that our assigned pier was occupied by another boat. No one was aboard this boat so we could not resolve the situation and had to dock elsewhere. No one was available in the harbor office or at Dockwa to help us.

Good stay, good people running the place, great location, friendly neighbors. I am normally in Montrose harbor on a mooring can, but rented the slip for the weekend for air and water show. I did get shoehorned into a 30' slip for my 33' while paying for the full freight for my length. It ended up being fine but tight getting in and hanging off the end.
Docks were fairly dirty, some wort of green slime that got tracked all over the boat if wet (rained quite a bit), they definitely could use a power washing.
The bathrooms are the main focus of this review, because they are horrible. From the beginning of the weekend, before the Air and Water show rush, they were overflowing and nasty. Toilet paper was empty and water was flowing under the doors of many rooms all weekend. I typically don't use the bathrooms or showers here, since I am on a can, but I can't even imagine having to take a shower here. You would end up dirtier than you started. I am not sure I fault the staff, it's just a poorly designed floating bathroom, which makes the task of cleaning a lot harder. A serious investment should be made in the bathrooms.

Excellent! Love the location! There was another boat in my assigned slip when I arrived, but after calling the harbor master, the situation was quickly resolved!

Pulled in to the dock and slip we had reserved, and it had a boat in it. The next slip over was empty, so we tied up there. I tried to contact the harbor office, but there was no answer. When the people in our slip showed up we found that this is common that someone from another harbor will get a call from a friend in Montrose with a number of slips that are open so they come in , Tie up, go to dinner, then leave. it was kind of funny that when the first boat left, there was another that pulled in based on a similar contact. not a big deal, as we were able to stay in the next slip.
Shower and bathroom facilities were less than pleasant. based on the price paid versus the price we have paid at other harbors all the way to Michigan, it was not that good of a value.

Lots of garbage in the water.
Toilet and shower facilities need repair and updating.
Slip assigned was on “party pier”, crowded and not convenient. WiFi not available.
Overpriced for what you get!
The location is very good, a few steps from the Montrose beach and the beach restaurant.
