Stayed at Harborsode with my husband for a mid-week trip. We couldn't have been happier. The location on the water was perfect and so close to restaurants, shops, etc. I highly recommend getting a room with a balcony to enjoy some time relaxing overlooking the water. The staff were very friendly, room was extremely clean and who can dislike fresh...

The loveliest service, a wonderful view and a delightful breakfast await you at the Harborside Inn. It was the ideal location for our Wedding Anniversary celebration. Our room had a balcony with an enchanting view over the harbor and a very comfortable sofa (that's why we chose room 14!) for recuperating from our adventures. The cold breakfast included delicious croissants...

We stayed in Newport for a long weekend, and stayed at the Harborside. We stayed in Room 15, which has the best view of the harbor, albeit a little blocked by the North 41 Hotel. The room was small but well appointed and clean. There is also a bed in a loft area accessed by steep ladder of sorts. I...

My husband and i recently stayed one night at the Harborside Inn. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and the inn is located in a perfect location for shopping and dining. We parked in their designated parking and walked everywhere we needed to go. The rooms were very cute and clean. My only complaint is that the bed was...

I stayed at this hotel just as a quick overnight trip to Newport in the off season. It is quiet, right on the ocean, and walking distance to everything. The room was huge. I stayed in a city view suite. It encompassed 2 floors. The first floor included the bathroom, loving room area, and king sized bed. The couch in...

Clean and beautiful room! Super friendly front desk (helped me track down my hat that I lost and had it returned to me!) and the entire staff was welcoming, helpful and right on top of things.

Dear jmil123, Thank you for your review of the Harborside Inn. I couldn’t have said it better about our front desk associate Elektra: She is just a wonderful front desk staff member. I am happy to hear she tracked down your hat—I’m betting that she could track down anything AND have a great time doing it! I am pleased that...

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hotel and would highly recommend it to everybody! The staff, the rooms (spacious and super-clean), the bathroom, the breakfast (much better as in many other places in the US) and the breakfast room: Everything was great! Perfect location also and you can park the car right outside. Unfortunately, we only had...

Perfect location in the heart of Newport with parking right outside the door. The room was clean and spacious. The person who checked us in was very friendly and informative. The walls may be think as you hear people in hall talking but nothing that would deter me from booking again.

Went to see family for Thanksgiving, and found this centrally located Inn. Right on the waterfront with parking, which is so helpful. Nice room with a big continental breakfast. Extremely helpful staff. Great staying in such a walkable town.

Dear Lovegoodfood18, Thank you for your kind words regarding your recent visit at Thanksgiving. We are always happy when our guests have a terrific experience. Parking of one space (free of course) and our central location on the waterfront are indeed most helpful in downtown Newport. I am glad you enjoyed the Harbor Room for continental breakfast. It is our...
