Harborside is an inn on Christies Landing in the middle of the main shopping street and adjacent to the marinas in Newport. You park your car in the free parking ( spots guaranteed) and walk everywhere. We walked to tour the mansions (called cottages by their original owners) , looked at the grounds of Salve Regina University, flitted in and... More

Well situated off Thames St. in downtown area of Newprt RI. Reserved guest street parking, easy walk to waterfront, Wharf, restaurants, shops, historic area and Visitors Center for trolleys to Mansions. No great luxury here, with clean, casual, older smaller rooms and loft suites for families. Water view rooms located adjacent to newer high end hotel with noisy night club... More

We had two days to celebrate my wife's birthday. We chose the Harborside after reading reviews on TA and were very pleased with our choice. Beautiful room with a view (as promised) of the Harbor. The hotel was meticulously clean and organized. There was a breakfast room where coffee (&cookies) was available not to mention a nice continental type breakfast... More

We chose this hotel based upon reviews here and we were not disappointed. This was our first trip to Newport. The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location was great - you could walk to so many shops, restaurants, etc. I've read here that you can't walk to the beach or the cliff walk,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Harborside and we loved it. First, you get a front row assigned parking space. (no valet. Yeah!) May sound like a small thing, but is unusual. So, you can get your car when you need it at no extra expense. Each room has a private, furnished balcony with an amazing view overlooking the... More

Dear Kris E -- I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves! I had to chuckle at your description of the seagulls and crabs -- yes, indeed, you can watch them out the window or from our balconies on the waterfront. I hope you also enjoyed seeing the boats starting to fill up the harbor and docks now that summer is... More

Stayed only one night for a mid week mother daughter mini getaway. I chose this place based on affordable price, great location, free parking, continental breakfast, and good reviews as well as the size of the room!! I was not disappointed. We had a slight issue when we booked the hotel regarding price for a third adult but after I... More

We were very happy with our waterview room at Harborside. As a small property it is homely and the room was very nicely appointed. Very good location close to many local attractions and restaurants / bars. Excellent value. We will stay again.

Thank you, David G, for staying with us and for taking time to write a review. It makes us very happy that you (and many others) consider the Harborside their "home" in downtown Newport. The location certainly is central and the colorful waterfront location is a pleasure for all who visit ... and for those of us who work here!... More

I decided it's fair to leave a review of just my booking experience even prior to my future stay date, which from what I've read, gives me great comfort that I've picked a great place for my future stay! I've been combing the internet trying to decide in which location in the Newport area to stay (considered Middleton) with my... More

I booked my room at Harborside in by using reviews of others who have stayed there. I'm so glad I took the chance. I spent one night there and wished I could have stayed longer. The gentlemen that checked me in was polite and friendly, and later on that evening I met Jane the Inn Manager who from the start... More

Dear SarajaneRose, I am so happy that YOU were happy at the Harborside, and that we were able to provide a cityview rather than waterview room under the circumstances. You'll be happy to hear that the wharf area repairs next door are wrapping up, and it really looks great. Maybe next time you join us you'd like to give waterview... More

If your looking to have a fun Newport experience, I do not recommend this Inn. As a group of young adults, it felt like the staff scrutinized everything we did. We were told several times how important it was for other guests to be kept happy as the hotel typically has an older crowd. While trying to enjoy the Harbor... More
