Stayed for just one night but what a fantastic find. This hotel/inn is right on water with views of water/sunset. In addition it is directly in the quaint town of Bristol complete with red white and blue striped streets and small shops and restaurants within walking distance. Upon entering the lobby was small but inviting and we were greeted pleasantly.... More

The beds and the furnature are old and need to be replaced. . We were there for there top weekend but and paid top... More

On a recent trip east we stayed for one night at this property. Although it was clean and the staff friendly it was nothing special. It is handy to all the things to do in Bristol and within walking distance to much of the shopping and sightseeing venues. If you are just looking for a place to stay with no... More

We stayed at the Bristol Harbor Inn for our wedding weekend - and blocked basically the entire Inn for our guests. Working with Christine was fantastic, she was incredibly helpful and patient with all of our requests and changes leading up to the wedding. Christine and her staff were so friendly and accommodating the entire weekend. The location is perfect... More

While the hotel itself is relatively standard without any bells and whistles, it's in the perfect location! Located off of the main street, it has a lovely tavern next door and waterfront restaurant in its backyard. We stayed here for with a wedding party and it couldn't have been more convenient. Only complaint is that walls are a bit thin.

The location is the star here, right on the water and in the middle of shops and restaurants. The room we had was nice and spacious, but definitely is in need of updating. While nothing was broken or faulty, it just seemed a bit neglected over time.

We've stayed at Bristol Harbor Inn a couple of times before, but it had been a few years. We knew what we could expect, a clean room, good bed, staying in the queen standard room in a great location. It is walkable to everything. The inn is non-smoking, which for us is essential. The pleasant surprise was the free continental... More

I'd really give this an 'average plus' rating - but not 'very good'. This is not our first stay at the Bristol Harbor Inn. About 10 years ago we stayed also - and the interior is now starting to show signs of fatigue. While the rooms are big enough, paint is chipped, holes are in the walls from a door... More

We only stayed one night passing through but the staff was very nice. The room was very spacious. The adjacent restaurant was very good, although we did eat dinner we had dessert, excellent! The staff there were very personable and accommodating. I would definately return.

This is not a luxury hotel, but our small suite was perfect for a trip that combined business and pleasure. It was a perfect location both for exploring Bristol and for reaching other nearby places, like Newport. There were restaurants within walking distance. It had an exercise room and a constant pot of coffee available in the lobby. And the... More
