Stayed overnight for a day and a half and it was a delightful little inn--great location and solid room, right on the water. Close to many attractions and centrally located. Overall, a cozy inn with a decidedly New England feel.

We arrived on a Tuesday and was given a beautiful room. My husband and I were so pleased at how lovely and wonderful everything was. Breakfast was great and so was the view. We will be back in the fall of next year.

My wife and I went for a visit to Newport for a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday. Had not stayed at the Harborside Inn since the summer of 1983 when we lost The Cup. I forgot what a nice place it is and what a great location. Walking distance to the Black Pearl and One Pelham East, two of... More

Dear "Bones1958" -- I am so glad you returned to the Harborside after all those years. Thank you for staying with us and for posting that nice photo taken from your balcony! I wonder if you saw the Illuminated Boat Parade while you were here. That took place Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and is one of the colorful events... More

My wife and i just finished our two day getaway at the Harborside Inn. Great central location. Free parking right in front. Walking distance to most of Newport. Every morning had a nice breakfast and in the afternoon cookies, coffee and tea was available. Room was nice. Few things that prevented from me giving 5 stars. 1. Window AC unit... More

Firstly this is in a great location right of Thames St, and does have free parking. However my overall impression is that it's all just a bit dated. My suite was very nice, but the bathroom, whilst clean, could do with some modernising, and I felt the same about the breakfast room despite it's wonderful views. In fact, the second... More

Dear sfcooper: Thank you for taking time to write a review. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your suite with free parking at our central waterfront location -- also that you appreciated the cleanliness and views. With respect to being dated, I don't know what to say other than that we make improvements and upgrades every year, and we will... More

My boyfriend and I come to Newport every year for the Seafood Festival. This was our first time at the Inn and certainly won't be our last! Price was right, room was surprisingly spacious and you can't beat the view or location! We had a king room directly on the waterfront. Loved the wine and cheese in the evening! We... More

While the manager, Jane, was pleasant & helpful, our 3 nights were so unsatisfying that we left early to get away from having to stay in our room while the weather was inclement. Furniture was ragged, scratched & discolored, no screens on the window so A C blows directly on you in bed, couch & bed cushions had stains, while... More

Dear Robert: I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay in Newport, but I am slightly confounded that you feel we advertised anything at all in a deceptive way. We are a small, 15-room inn/hotel on the downtown waterfront offering a variety of rooms and lofted suites with balconies, free parking and complimentary continental breakfast. Many many guests have commented... More

From the moment we arrived, we knew we picked a great place to stay! Jane was great and helped us no end plan our stay. The room was superb, we really felt at home. Very clean and comfy beds.

Harborside Inn was located within walking distance of the shopping and restaurant area. Free parking, continental breakfast and friendly staff included! Rooms are clean and modern. The two level room with balcony was more than sufficient. Would stay at this Inn again.

My bridesmaids, a few family members and I stayed here before and after my wedding. We loved it! We had a hard time finding an affordable hotel in a good location, until I happened upon Harborside!
