We stayed recently with our two grown kids so we needed three beds. Overall, this place has the charm of an Inn with the room quality of a nice hotel (too often "charming" means "old and worn.") We had a loft that was quite nice with a wonderful view of the harbor from the deck off our room. Very nice... More

The loft rooms are unusual and very comfortably appointed. The harbor view was terrific - balconies are small but fun to sit out on to people watch. The staff was helpful but not obtrusive. Breakfast room is very pleasant, and noise from the street was never a problem. Be aware that the ladder up to the loft could be a... More

Dear Bartan — Thank you for visiting us again 22 years later! We love hosting repeat guests, no matter how long it takes them to return! Of course, many things have changed since you were last here (in Newport and at the Harborside), but I'm glad to hear you found all the "right" things remain the same. So, when is... More

We had a lovely stay at the Harborside Inn. It is in a brilliant location right in the centre of Newport and parking is available right outside the Hotel door. The staff were very helpful - the guy on the front desk when we arrived helped us with our baggage to our room and we got upgraded to an Oceanview... More

We loved the Harborside - the duplex is perfect for families. Location is great; we rented bikes next door and rode through the town and to the various mansions. Beds were comfortable; we enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony and the kids loved the loft. The breakfast room (and breakfast) was lovely both mornings. Bathroom is a little on the... More

Dear schellgirl: I'm happy to hear you loved Newport and the Harborside Inn! Our loft-suites with two separate sleeping areas are indeed very convenient for families. It is gratifying to hear that you were happy in so many other ways, too: from bedding to breakfast to balcony to handy location. Bike riding to the mansions sounds like great fun. I... More

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

Dear Carol M -- I'm so glad you found the Harborside a nice place to come "home" to at the end of each day in Newport. Our location right downtown on the waterfront is hard to beat (if we do say so ourselves!), and we certainly aim to be friendly and helpful at all times. I'm also glad that your... 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.

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
