We went here for our company Christmas party. I have to say my boyfriend and I will definitely be going back in the near future. The hotel was immaculate and quaint. It sits right on the water front and has a beautiful view and ambience. The hotel manager is quite the historian and gave us a wonderful tour of the...

We stayed here for one night at New Year. Excellent location in the town with shops, bars & restaurants within easy walking distance. You have to park your car across the street in the municipal car park overnight. The hotel gives you a card to display in your dashboard. You can park directly outside the hotel to check in/out. Room...

Looking to head to Newport for the weekend but can't get near the ocean or afford the outrageous rates? Try a stop over in Bristol RI and spend a visit in a quaint seafaring town. The Bristol Harbor Inn offers great food, fantastic getaway packages, outstanding harbor views and the community has an ambiance that was once found in neighboring...

Traveled to Bristol for an overnight to attend to family business. Immediately felt welcome at BHI. The front desk staff were able accommodate my request to change the type of room I needed upon arrival. My room was spacious, clean and very comfortable (king room, 2nd floor). The Inn's location was convenient and quite beautiful. I was walking distance to...

We stayed at BHI for a local college tour. Far and away the most convenient choice. Also, much nicer than a cookie cutter hotel. Our room was very large and nice despite not being waterside. It was very nice. If was also great to be able to park the car and walk. Nothing special about the included continental breakfast but...

Nice stay, great location in the center of all the great shops, and restaurants in town. All within walking distance. Nice water views. Air conditioning a bit noisey, other than that an average room. Nice staff, I would go back and recommend it to a friend, good value.

Promptly greeted by friendly staff, and assigned a room. Found room clean (freshly painted) and all equipments ell kept and functional. Walls are thin and neighboring room noise is obvious....

Came here for a wedding. Stood here for 2 nights. Room was clean and no complaints in my overall stay at the room. However the continental breakfast was not so good. It was horrible, had an omelet that cost me a $5 trip to the bathroom. Other than that I would recommend this place.

This past weekend I presided over a wedding in Bristol Rhode Island. Since I needed to be at the rehearsal on Thursday I decided to stay overnight and found a room at the Bristol Harbor Inn. My concern was that I would be forced to check out hours before the wedding the next day. Not so. The Bristol Harbor Inn...

During late September my wife and I re-visited Bristol, RI and stayed at the Bristol harbor Inn located along the Thames Street waterfront and convenient for walking to several of the good seafood restaurants in the area. The weather was wonderful throughout the entire stay with lovely sunsets for each of the four days we were there. The hotel experience...
