My husband and I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago when we were over in the USA visiting family in New York State. We loved Newport so much that we are once again incorporating it again, this time with our elder son. We were greeted once more by the very friendly Jane who made us

Response from Jane F, Manager at Harborside Inn
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear cindyc: Thank you for staying with us and for taking time to leave a review. We are so sorry you felt unable to enjoy your view and balcony in the morning due to workers repairing the roof at the hotel next door. Please know we had no advance knowledge that this work would be taking place, otherwise we would have alerted you and/or assigned you and your daughter to a different room. Our neighbor's roof work was completed all in one day, so the good news is this experience should not happen to any future guests. Again, we apologize for this issue which was beyond our control and are sincerely sorry that it resulted in your disappointment. We hope you might consider giving the Harborside another try in the future if travel plans bring you this way. Best of luck to your daughter in her college process! Warm wishes, Jane M. Ford

Just arrived this afternoon, and already fell in love with the location. Staff were nice and room is clean and has a beautiful view from the balcony. A bit pricey, but with the location and free breakfast, I think it’s okay. 😊
