The Harborside Inn provided a comfortable retreat at the end of three long days in Newport. Although the building is old, and on arrival we were a bit anxious about what we would find when we got to our room, we were pleasantly surprised. The only negatives were the window air conditioner unit in the room (although it worked very... More

We stayed for a few days following our wedding and we loved it! The location was excellent, it was in the heart of the harbor area and we could walk everywhere. Jane was amazing and extremely friendly with every interaction. We can't wait to return.

We have stayed at the Harborside Inn three times now and was never disappointed. Jane at the front desk is so friendly and welcoming on arrival. All the rooms we had were very clean and had a loft area with another queen size bed which is a bonus. The rooms also contain a couch and small sitting area along with... More

The best features of this place are its location and the view over the water if you pay for and get the right room. In addition, the staff is very pleasant and friendly. However, forget about the "historic charm": it's not visible, except for the narrow hallways, steep stairs and lack of elevators. Some of the rooms have a mezzanine... More

My husband and my adult children decided to celebrate my birthday in Newport, RI. Never having visited Newport before, it was difficult to select lodging without a recommendation from friends, etc. Our stay at the Harborside Inn far surpassed our expectations. First, it is in the heart of all the activities in Newport, which was an important factor for our... More

We came to Newport excited to stay and tour the area. Both my husband and I had not been since we were children. We had intentions of having a wonderful trip. We got there early and was able to check in prior to 3, which was great. Jane gave us a "lay of the land" and we toured a bit... More

The hotel is right in the middle of town with easy access to shops and restaurants. Everything was extremely clean including the rooms, lobby and breakfast area. Our beds were very comfortable and the rooms well-equipped. We had room 5 which gave a city view with one king on the first floor and a queen in the upstairs loft with... More

We stayed here in April. Great location with assigned parking in front of the property. We got a split level room which was just fab. I think it was room 5. Upstairs was another sleeping/ sitting area and access to the balcony. The downstairs had a huge really comfy bed. Nice décor. The wardrobe area in the cupboard it shares... More

Dear FMMG, Thank you for the kind words and excellent descriptions. I'm glad you enjoyed so many aspects of the Harborside Inn! Room 5, where you stayed, is what we call a Cityview Suite. We also have Waterview Suites with a similar set-up — the difference, other than the view, is that Waterview Suites have a ship's ladder to the... More

Dear MaNewenglander, Thank you so much for staying with us and for the lovely review! Indeed, we are not a chain hotel. The Harborside has just 15 rooms and is situated directly on the Newport waterfront. That said, we think of ourselves as being a bit larger and more hotel-style than a B&B. We are truly an inn, or small... More
