I stayed at this hotel just as a quick overnight trip to Newport in the off season. It is quiet, right on the ocean, and walking distance to everything. The room was huge. I stayed in a city view suite. It encompassed 2 floors. The first floor included the bathroom, loving room area, and king sized bed. The couch in...

Clean and beautiful room! Super friendly front desk (helped me track down my hat that I lost and had it returned to me!) and the entire staff was welcoming, helpful and right on top of things. Our bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect we parked our car and walked to restaurants, shops, bars, and nightlife. We were in...

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hotel and would highly recommend it to everybody! The staff, the rooms (spacious and super-clean), the bathroom, the breakfast (much better as in many other places in the US) and the breakfast room: Everything was great! Perfect location also and you can park the car right outside. Unfortunately, we only had...

Perfect location in the heart of Newport with parking right outside the door. The room was clean and spacious. The person who checked us in was very friendly and informative. The walls may be think as you hear people in hall talking but nothing that would deter me from booking again.

Went to see family for Thanksgiving, and found this centrally located Inn. Right on the waterfront with parking, which is so helpful. Nice room with a big continental breakfast. Extremely helpful staff. Great staying in such a walkable town.

Dear Lovegoodfood18, Thank you for your kind words regarding your recent visit at Thanksgiving. We are always happy when our guests have a terrific experience. Parking of one space (free of course) and our central location on the waterfront are indeed most helpful in downtown Newport. I am glad you enjoyed the Harbor Room for continental breakfast. It is our...

Harborside Inn located within walking distance to all great restaurants and stores!!! Every morning the hospitality rooms has coffee, tea, juices, fruit, homemade biscuits etc and the staff is excellent. Also late afternoon tea, cider, coffee and homemade cookies etc.

Dear MARYELLENBostonMa, Thank you for taking time to offer your comments about the Harborside Inn. We are so happy to share this wonderful, walkable location with our guests. Newport is beautiful during the holidays with the mansions decorated in splendor, storefronts and wharves looking so festive, and streets and historic lamp posts all lit up and glowing. Of course, the...

This waterfront hotel was perfect - close to everything and a home away from home. We're used to staying in 5 star hotels in central city locations but this was a particularly pleasant change - recommended !!! BTW, the main entrance is deceiving as the many rooms (upstairs) run along above the cute shops.

Jane F, Manager at Harborside Inn, responded to this review

Dear TAPAGO, Thank you for such a positive, descriptive review. We are glad you had a perfect home away from home experience and that it was a pleasant change from the 5-star accommodations you usually choose. We agree that the Harborside is not "flashy" but it sure is a well-located and has very comfortable rooms and suites to offer! You...

Full disclosure - I have not stayed at the Harborside Inn. But I plan too. I called this morning to request a bottle of champagne be sent to a couples room celebrating their anniversary.

Dear Robert F -- Team Harborside thanks you for your thoughts, and you are right — we truly care for our guests!
