We booked a few months ahead for a wedding, also at the hotel, but all the regular rooms were taken, so we opted for one of their suites. Upon arrival at 2am we were delightfully surprised, although now understanding why it was upwards of 600/night. The desk clerk was about to give us our card room key and then realized...

This is a classy hotel. It's on the waterfront. It's in a very high demand area. so the prices are very, very high. We stayed at this hotel for a wedding and got a wedding rate of $209 + tax over labor Day weekend. Without the wedding rate, we definitely would not have stayed there. there is NO coffee in...

Just the perfect location to view the harbor & boats. Very accommodating for business needs, internet access, scanning and printing. Charming lobby with easy access to the upper floors. Room was clean and spacious with two separate bedrooms plus good size bathroom made our stay comfortable. All restaurants,coffee shops, boutique retail shops, bike rentals were within walking distance.

We needed a place to stay for just a night between Providence and Fall River at the last minute and this was perfect. Room was large very clean and quiet. Absolutely no amenities but a coffee maker and fridge. Would have been nice to have coffee in the lobby. The hotel is right on Bristol Harbor so there are some...

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...

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...

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...

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. Indeed it was - the king size bedroom was one that we had stayed in many 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'...
