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

Helpful friendly staff. Rooms very clean. The extra quality decorating touches made you feel as if you were staying in someone's home. The sunroom over looking the water is comfortable & inviting. Always well stocked with refreshments & fresh flowers on every table. Great location. We parked our car & were able to walk everywhere. We went in April off... More

We arrived Friday late after noon at the Harborside Inn in Newport RI. We had booked the suite with the loft with twin beds. When we arrived we realized that we did not feel safe climbing the ladder to the loft. We called down and asked if there was any chance that we could be switched to the city view... More

Recently stayed overnight here and couldn't have been happier. Centrally located in Newport within walking distance of many fine restaurants, shopping and attractions. Fantastic breakfast served in a beautiful multi window room overlooking the water. Delicious housemade oatmeal. Really something for everyone. Comfortable beds and nicely decorated and clean rooms. The Innkeeper, Meg, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area... More

My partner and I have stayed at the Harborside Inn many times. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is always friendly, courteous and helpful. The spacious breakfast room is a plus, with great views of the harbor. The hotel is within walking distance of most of the attractions in Newport. We have already made reservations for our... More

We looked out at the bay from our small balcony. The room was large, comfortable, quiet and well-decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast wasn't the greatest, but the view scored points. The location is terrific, close to shops, restaurants, wharves and the city vibe.

Dear chatfemme7: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and the "vibe" as you put it of the City-by-the-Sea. The vibe is a little different in late October compared to mid-summer, of course, but that's one of the nice things about Newport: there's much to see and discover regardless of the season! If by any chance you have time to... More

My husband and I took our 23 year old granddaughter with us on a 3-day getaway of which one day was spent in Newport. We wanted it to be special for her and I had carefully chosen where we would stay. Two were great, unfortunately the Harborside Inn wasn't one of them!

Dear usharts: We aim to provide every guest with a wonderful experience on the Newport waterfront, so we are disappointed that your visit did not meet your expectations. I must say, I am flummoxed by several things you mentioned. First, as cited by many other reviewers, our downtown neighborhood has much more to offer than t-shirt shops and a few... More

Hello! It was such a pleasure to have you here for your cousin reunion. Thank you for choosing the Harborside! I'm so pleased you enjoyed the location, loft suites, continental breakfast, friendly service, etc. As you know, the city-view suites also feature small private balconies facing toward town but with peeks of the Newport Bridge, which is especially visible at...

All in all, this stay was perfect. The staff were friendly, the room clean and well kept, the view outstanding, and a nice breakfast. My only complaint might be the wifi, which was spotty at best. However, it was free, so it's a nominal complaint. A beautiful place to stay, and a very attentive staff. Would recommend this property highly!
