“Not what we really expected, near Newport”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

We traveled to Rhode island in August to visit Newport and surrounding areas, and decided to stay near Newport, because most rooms in Newport were not available....The location of this motel is accessible to downtown Newport, quite quickly.....it is about a 2 mile drive.....The motel itself is extremely clean, has a beautiful pool, and a smal sitting area outside..However, there really is no restaurant nor bar to sit at and lounge at in the evening...Breakfast seems to be the main meal served at the motel........The area around the motel is very quiet, if that is what you are looking for....However, beware, if you're room has a door, to which it can be adjoined to another room.....This is quite uncomfortable, because at night you can hear everything in the next room, quite clearly....Water running, etc. and all loud noise that may be coming from that room....On the last night of our stay, the room, next to use was booked and noise went on til the middle of the night....We actually kept our television on, to block out the noise...Plus the fact that the door is adjoined to your neighbors room, also....Not comfortable............Otherwise, it is a well-kept motel, quiet. Seems like a good place for older people, young families, and business travelers......

I recently stayed at the Courtyard in Middletown and had a wonderful experience. What a hidden gem! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and everything, from the lobby to the rooms to the pool, is clean and updated. And the price is reasonable. I highly recommend this hotel! You won't regret it.

Every year my friend and I stay at the Courtyard for the weekend of the Newport Folk Festival. This year we were pleasantly surprise by the renovations they made in their lobby. They used bright colors and expanded their retaurant area along with a little bar for guest to have a drink or two before calling it a night. The staff is always helpful and attentive to their guest. We the pool and jacuzzi area is always clean and is open until 10PM for a late night swim or some relaxation at the hot tub. Rooms are spacious and quiet. We loved the improvements to their lobby and will continue to go their for our stay. It is close enough to town if we want to be were all the crowds are or the area around the hotel has lots of restaurants where you can grab a bite. Ruby Tuesday, Chilis, Blue Plate or just a few.

I called the receptionist about 1:00 pm to see if there was any way we could checkin early. She said our room was ready, and we could come right over. We arrived a few minuted later and was informed that our room was not ready, but she would upgrade us to a suite and we could swim while we waited the hour or 2 until it would be ready. It was perfect! The indoor/outdoor pool was nice and warm. There were only a few people there so my kids had the run of the place. They have very comfy lounge chairs, but the towel supply was always a little low. We got into our room a little while later and it was HUGE and clean. Spent the few days here mostly in the pool, but when we did go out, we were pretty conveniently located to most things (about a 15 minute drive to downtown Newport). The beds were not as comfy as other Marriotts, however. Highly recommend staying here if traveling with young children!

This hotel is very conveinent, the people were great, and the room was clean. It has been redone to the "new" Courtyard format in terms of lobby and food. Everyone was very helpful. The gentleman working at the Bistro served me food even though it was supposed to be only drinks at that hour and even served people who came in after me. I liked the format of the small tables with individual TVs and the "business center" with FREE printing in the lobby. It did however take me a day to realize there was FREE coffee hiding behind a partition, and you did not need to buy coffee from the Bistro. The pool and hot tub also looked inviting. The only negative comments I have are that the internet was both wired and REALLY slow. Also the Dish TV kept going out regardless of weather. My nav system also seemed to keep having trouble finding the satellite, so I don't know if the issue was really the hotel/Dish TV.

This is a great hotel for visiting Newport and beaches (and the casino). You do need a car, but it has free parking. I had stayed here two years ago and it was so-so, but the property was just renovated and is quite lovely. Nice pool, nice breakfast facility. Rooms are very comfortable. Friendly staff. Tech friendly (although Newport area not a great Verizon signal).
