We decided to stop in Bristol on our way back from Massachusetts. We took the recommendation to stay at the Bristol Inn from tripadvisor. It is right on the water with nice views from the rooms. The location is perfect for getting on the east bay bike path. That was our reason to stay at this hotel. The rooms were... More

Staff was friendly and allowed us to check in early since our room was ready. Best part of the hotel is it's proximity to restaurants and shops. Parked the car and never took it out again until we left town. The room was clean and comfortable but nothing special. It had those little postage stamp pillows. Wifi was not very... More

We were well pleased with the location. The hotel parking wasn't available as there was a group meeting there and they had priority,so we had to park a couple blocks away. And then it rained. The motel may have been in ownership transition. That said not the cleanest, and the shades in our room were broken. The restaurants close by... More

I had business in Bristol that required a two-night stay, and the BHI was recommended. Couldn't ask for a better location, steps from the water and plenty of great dining. Had a great room, and got lots of good recommendations on where to eat and what to see from the staff. Nice, relaxed atmosphere.

We came for the day to enjoy the extensive bike path and stayed at this lovely hotel. Great location, very clean, extremely nice service and good breakfast. I recommend it to anyone. Always like to support the non chains.

We stayed for two nights at the Bristol Harbor Inn and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. Not only is the hotel located on the water, it is also only one short block from all the Hope Street shops and restaurants. I enjoyed walking along the waterfront trail as well as down the main street, where... More

Have been many times. The east bay bike path starts here off the coast of the Narragansett Bay. Great starting point for the 14 mile path.. There is a spot to put your bike at the hotel. The rooms are very cozy and the staff is great. The DeWolff tavern is next door and they have specials .

We stayed at the Bristol Harbor Inn while touring around New England. Ideally situated on the sea front and in the Coast walking route which takes you to the National Park. Ideal for a couple of days exploring the local area. We had a suite with separate lounge. The rooms were very good, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is taken at... More

Stayed at this hotel for a Sunday wedding in Bristol. They were very accommodating at getting us an early checkin and finding me someone in advance that could do my hair and makeup. Overall it was a pleasant stay, the only disappointment was they were out of a room with a king bed.

This place is adorable! It is right on the harbor with a beautiful view. The hotel is very much a boutique hotel. Small check in area, but very friendly service. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The area around the hotel is very "Rhode Island" with lots of cute shops. It is also very close to Newport and... More
