We really enjoyed our stay at the Harborside Inn. The room included a queen bed downstairs with a living room suite and small refrigerator. The upstairs loft had a king size bed and is where we chose to sleep. The view from the first level small porch overlooking the parking lot towards the water was great. The headroom in the upstairs loft was a bit tricky near the window and a bit difficult to walk to. But the view was fantastic. A very comfortable room albeit the bathroom was a bit "tight".
The dining area was really fantastic with wonderful views of the marina and waters beyond. The breakfast was above average including ham, hardboiled eggs and delicious pastries. Just watch out for stale cereal stored in large containers - they probably should use individual packages for this high moisture environment. Also, keeping the coffee urns full seemed to be a challenge. The free parking was a plus for this perfect location where you could walk to just about any place you would want to see downtown and at Bannisters Warf.
The staff were friendly and helpful. But perhaps not very engaging. Their response to inquiries about dining and sights was to give us the local walking map and tell us that there were lots of great places to eat. Luckily, there was free WiFi and we just searched the online reviews to help make our agenda.

There was no catering for lunch and dinner at the club on Mondays and Tuesdays, so we found a French providore in town, and assembled a fine array of tucker. Back to the club, I arranged a few Adirondack chairs on the lawn overlooking the harbour, and borrowed a ...
... almost on my knees to get to our first floor room. We went for a short walk around town - it is very cold and still raining - so we retreated to the Oyster Bar for a drink and diner - excellent. Oh JFK and Jackie got married at the church across the road from our guesthouse. Sighting: A lot of pleasure craft and yachts - never seen so many since leaving NY. Mileage: 134 ...
The first was the Tennis Hall of Fame, a beautiful old grass tennis court commissioned in 1880 and home to the first United States Championships which is now known as the US Open held annually in New York.
In an instant they were transported to a small scale Wimbledon, with a ...
We then visited the Fort Adams which overlooked the port. After sampling
some traditional Rhode Island lemonade, a cross between lemonade and
a slushie, we saw some several schooners (2 masted boats) and some
Cup America boats from the 1980s sailing on the bay. It is these
boats that caused us to return two days later.
