My daughter and I stayed here the weekend after Labor Day for two nights (September 6th and 7th).
First off, this hotel is actually two separate buildings, the historic hotel and the newer suites hotel. We stayed in the Historic building which was in fact renovated and our room was great for the most part. While the address is Middletown, the sign for entering Middletown is across the street so if the thought that it is not in Newport bothers you, don't let it.
The Good: It was a good size room (two queen beds) on the top floor which overlooked the beach. It was a nice room with a large window and a fair amount of room. The bed's were really comfortable. It's in a great location within easy walking distance of other restaurants, the beach and cliff walk. Staff are very helpful and do take the time to answer any questions. I asked for hypo-allergenic pillows and they were there in no time at all. We did enjoy the breakfasts they served in their on site dining room.
The Not So Good: While the room was nice, the bathroom was very small, but they compensated with a lot of small drawers to put things in. However, one of the drawers had hair clippings in it from a previous guest, which really put us off. The AC was rather loud and as it turned on and off, it was bothersome the first. Also, parking was an issue. All the parking is either across the street around the newer suites building or if you arrive late you have to park across a main road in the beach parking lot. They didn't inform me of this when I registered. It was fine, but I was concerned when I first learned this. It's dark over there so not a great idea for the elderly. Also, there is no one available to help you with your bags after parking across the street. We were fine but again it might be difficult for elderly people. The lobby for both buildings is in the Historic Building, while the parking is next to the suites building.
Overall, we liked this place despite some minor points. I think the thing that bothered me was that it was a good place to stay in Middletown/Newport area, however, I have spent similar money in other hotels and I felt I had more for my money than in this place.
