We booked this hotel as a last minute one-night getaway and were thrilled. The photos on this site don't do it justice since the renovation. Our lovely room was comparable to the Hyatt in Newport, where we have also stayed. We were told it did not have a water view when it actually did! (Room 204) Nice surprise. There was... More

Stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. Check in was fast and nice. Rooms are newly Renovated...very clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit hard but not uncomfortable. We lost power because of a passing storm but everything was up and running within 20 mins. The room didn't have an iron so we called to the front... More

I needed a spot for one night because we were going to be drinking at a friend's house that was too tiny to accommodate us so I booked here with a room adjoining mine so we could continue our chatting with the other friend that had accompanied me. She is so fun to be with and it was a perfect... More

My wife and I returned to Bristol and stayed once again at the Bristol Harbor Inn. Upon arrival we were told that the Inn was under new management and had been totally renovated since we had last visited almost two years ago.

If you are planning on having a special time in Bristol, please, do NOT stay at the Bristol Harbor Inn (BHI). We had our wedding at Blithewold Mansion and booked rooms at the BHI 1 year in advance. When we arrived at 3:30, half the reservations' rooms STILL weren't ready, even though they said to come after 3PM. My parents'... More

While it isn't easy to find this place without GPS, it's worth looking. Newly renovated in Spring 2016, the common areas and rooms are clean and well-maintained. Probably the worst thing you could say is that they tried to charge $50 against my credit card per day for "incidentals" (We were told this was corporate policy since some of their... More

Very disappointed! Booked this hotel almost two months ago and requested a standard King room. Arrived in our room to find we were given 2 doubles. Front desk and manager advised us they were totally booked and couldn't help us. It's not like I walked in off the street looking for a room! I have a CONFIRMED reservation for a... More
