My son and I stayed at Harborside Inn for three nights to attend Newport Folk Festival. We booked a waterview suite (#16) which had a spectacular view of the harbor, a small balcony with 2 chairs, a king bed on the main floor and a queen bed in a loft accessed via a narrow ladder. Overall, we were very happy with the accommodations and didn't experience any of the issues some have complained about (our room was ready early, there was a functional large-screen TV, clean sheets, reasonably spacious bathroom in good repair, working refrigerator, efficient maid service etc.) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only significant complaint was breakfast, which was disappointing. At these prices they should really hire someone to cook their guests a fresh meal like most other Newport inns. The self-service offerings were actually inferior to what you would find at a Best Western or similar motel and included flavorless supermarket bagels and muffins, Yoplait artificial yogurt, hard-boiled eggs and cold Canadian bacon slices, etc. -- yuck! On the waterview side there was considerable noise coming from the restaurant/cabaret next door which features live music until midnight, but hey it's downtown Newport so I wasn't expecting peace & quiet and it really didn't bother us. As others have said, you can't beat the location and I would probably stay there again especially if they start offering a decent breakfast.
