I will upfront say that I have not had the pleasure of staying at the Harborside Inn (yet), however I have had the pleasure of dealing with Jane several times in the purchase of several gift certificates for my parent's and aunt, and then booking their rooms. About 10 years ago my brother and I decided that the best gift... More

This inn is walking distance to wharfs and many restaurant and Thames st shops. The breakfast was good enough with quiche, muffins, fruit, waffles, cereals, yogurt, oatmeal, juices, hard boiled eggs, cold cuts, pastries. Cookies were always available and wine and cheese last night , Saturday. The room was large with a loft upstairs. Small refrigerator, TV, small balcony. And... More

Dear Mary Anne M, Thank you for joining us and for your thorough, informative review. Yes indeed, the Harborside is located right downtown on the Newport waterfront, very near many restaurants and shops. Most guests park their cars and walk just about everywhere they'd like to go. In addition to the features you mentioned, we are pleased to be able... More

You cannot beat this location...on the water, steps from all the shops and great restaurants. The manager Jane is very friendly and welcoming...happy to provide any needed directions, recommendations for dinner, etc. Our room was large and very clean. I would agree with some other reviews that the furnishing felt a bit dated, but for the price and the location,... More

Dear Diane_Faye, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and observations. We're glad you enjoyed our location as much as we do! Yes, Newport has many great dining options, many of them steps from our door, and even in the off-peak season there is much to see and do. The mansions are decorated, store fronts are festive,...

The good -Location- right in the center of Newport -Room size- nice and big -free continental breakfast and afternoon tea -Service is nice and friendly -The price-half the price of 41 north and it's right next door. The bad -Not a quiet place -Walls are "Goodfellas"... More

The parking situation is very unfortunate for what you pay. (1 car per guest) I called ahead of time, and they knew I was coming with a wedding party yet they neglected to mention anything about the parking scenario. Upon arrival we were (very abruptly) told that there would only be one car allowed to park in the lot. When... More

Dear Amber O -- Congratulations on your recent wedding, and thank you for staying with us. As a 15-room inn in central downtown Newport, we are actually very pleased to be able to offer free on-site parking, one car per room. Most guests consider that a significant convenience and added value which is very clearly stated on every confirmation. If... More

This was probably my 4th or 5th time there. Always a "girls' trip." Usually during the teachers' convention weekend in early November. (I work in a school.) One time we went up in April. I just love this place. Especially room #7. I find it so down-to-earth and homey. In other words, if you're looking for posh, this might not... More

Great location on the water. We had the 2 room suite which was plenty large. The bedding was exceptional and so very very comfortable. Breakfast room was very nice with nice comfortable seating with great views of the harbor. Jane at the front desk was very pleasant and welcoming. The Inn also served fresh baked chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies... More

We stayed here as a family with three teenagers for three nights at the end of October. We took two suites which gave all three children their own space and they were delighted with the huge beds - the beds on the mezzanine levels in the suites are larger, at least 6 feet wide The suites are really nicely furnished...

We stayed here as part of a wedding party. They didn't hold rooms for the brides parent's and the maid of honor, so they had to stay at another hotel. They also charged us an additional $50 per person, PER NIGHT, for four people staying in a suite. Is that really necessary? On top of that, because they screwed up... More

Dear Paul S -- With all due respect, we held rooms for each and every guest we were asked to include in the reservation for the wonderful occasion of your friend's wedding. The reservation was made and confimed by the bride-to-be way back in May -- several changes were requested and confirmed in September. While we certainly regret the confusion... More
