The Harborside Inn was perfect. We arrived on a Monday and parked right in front of the hotel (no additional charge for parking). Very pleasant staff that checked us in a couple of hours early with no problem. Room was spacious. clean and had a balcony with a view of the Harbor. The bed was comfortable (we stayed in room...

Dear NY2LV: Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write such a thorough, enthusiastic review! It makes us very happy to have this special location with generously sized rooms, nearly all with balconies, to share with our guests. We're glad you agree that our rates, even in peak season, are reasonable compared to other nearby...

We had the best weekend visiting for the Newport Folk Festival this weekend. The hotel was in a great location; we parked our car in front to the hotel on Friday and didn't use it again until leaving on Monday. Our room was spacious with a nice sized bathroom, a small refrigerator and a very comfortable bed. The loft was...

Harborside is an inn on Christies Landing in the middle of the main shopping street and adjacent to the marinas in Newport. You park your car in the free parking ( spots guaranteed) and walk everywhere. We walked to tour the mansions (called cottages by their original owners) , looked at the grounds of Salve Regina University, flitted in and...

Well situated off Thames St. in downtown area of Newprt RI. Reserved guest street parking, easy walk to waterfront, Wharf, restaurants, shops, historic area and Visitors Center for trolleys to Mansions. No great luxury here, with clean, casual, older smaller rooms and loft suites for families. Water view rooms located adjacent to newer high end hotel with noisy night club...

We had two days to celebrate my wife's birthday. We chose the Harborside after reading reviews on TA and were very pleased with our choice. Beautiful room with a view (as promised) of the Harbor. The hotel was meticulously clean and organized. There was a breakfast room where coffee (&cookies) was available not to mention a nice continental type breakfast...

We chose this hotel based upon reviews here and we were not disappointed. This was our first trip to Newport. The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location was great - you could walk to so many shops, restaurants, etc. I've read here that you can't walk to the beach or the cliff walk,...

My husband and I stayed at the Harborside and we loved it. First, you get a front row assigned parking space. (no valet. Yeah!) May sound like a small thing, but is unusual. So, you can get your car when you need it at no extra expense. Each room has a private, furnished balcony with an amazing view overlooking the...

Dear Kris E -- I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves! I had to chuckle at your description of the seagulls and crabs -- yes, indeed, you can watch them out the window or from our balconies on the waterfront. I hope you also enjoyed seeing the boats starting to fill up the harbor and docks now that summer is...

Stayed only one night for a mid week mother daughter mini getaway. I chose this place based on affordable price, great location, free parking, continental breakfast, and good reviews as well as the size of the room!! I was not disappointed. We had a slight issue when we booked the hotel regarding price for a third adult but after I...

We were very happy with our waterview room at Harborside. As a small property it is homely and the room was very nicely appointed. Very good location close to many local attractions and restaurants / bars. Excellent value. We will stay again.

Thank you, David G, for staying with us and for taking time to write a review. It makes us very happy that you (and many others) consider the Harborside their "home" in downtown Newport. The location certainly is central and the colorful waterfront location is a pleasure for all who visit ... and for those of us who work here!...

I decided it's fair to leave a review of just my booking experience even prior to my future stay date, which from what I've read, gives me great comfort that I've picked a great place for my future stay!
