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

I recently had the opportunity to stay at this hotel. The hallway outside my room wreaked of marijuana the first night and the odor came into my room under the closed door. I complained about the smell, but was told nothing could be done. Our room was dirty and had trash behind the bedside table and behind the refrigerator. The... More

This place was awesome. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. The bed for very comfortable with a soft down comforter. The continental breakfast was very delicious. I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves to stay by the water.

We stayed four nights. Staff was friendly and our suite was nice. Time to update sheets and towels. Daily room service could be better. The carpet needed to be vacuumed and definitely bathroom floor swept and cleaned. Halls also much needed vacuuming. Some glassware instead of all plastic would have been an improvement. Continental breakfast also needed improvement. Good location.

Traveling with our 18 year old daughter to visit Roger Williams U. It was an overnight and I was hoping for something that would fit our needs. As much as I love B&Bs (and my daughter), three in a bedroom was not a great idea. The Bristol Harbor Inn has suites- two hotel rooms divided by french doors with sleeper... More

This is our second stay at the Bristol Harbor Inn and our first visit was memorable so we wanted to return. We attended a wedding her for the daughter of close friends about 10 years ago. We always said we would return but never seemed to find time. We finally got back and we were not disappointed. When we first... More

We had a social event at this hotel, the rooms were beautiful, nice and clean with all the appropriate amenities. The catered social event at the restaurant function room was wonderful, Bartender was courteous, and the passed Hors d ouevres were delicious. Check in/out went smooth. But the continental breakfast was the pits, lukewarm coffee seeming made from dishwater, fruit... More

My husband and I spent New Years Eve here, just as a little get-a-way. The night check-in clerk was very friendly and courteous. When there was an issue with the room they had reserved for us, instead of making us wait for them to fix the problem with that room, they up-graded us to a very nice room. As we... More

We were at the The Bristol Harbor Inn for a wedding in Bristol. It is a modest hotel located right on the waterfront of the town. The building is historic and the bar/restaurant attached to is called the De Wolf Tavern and the hotel breakfast is served there. The tavern is located in a very interesting building which is a...

I cancelled a room at a large corporate hotel in Providence after finding this inn. I will admit I was nervous about what to expect after reading some of the reviews. I am happy to say this place is a treasure. Our room is neat, clean & there are plenty of bath supplies. No hair conditioner but enough of everything... More
