The Sea Whale was a great spot to return to after spending the day touring mansions and downtown Newport. Everything we needed was easily available, comfortable beds, ice, refrigerator and an easy walk to a variety of restaurants.
The salt pond view is peaceful and serene, the perfect setting for pre-dinner cocktails or early morning coffee.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $10. for a second floor room with access to the deck.

Me and my girls were looking for a place to stay and found this lovely place. The view from the back lounge chairs and Adirondack chairs is beautiful...could spend the day and night out there. The rooms were very clean, and for the four of us very roomy. I would absolutely stay here again!

Not just spotless, but sparkling clean. The owners have thought of everything -- every last detail -- to make your stay here a top-notch experience. Among other things, a really comfortable bed, soft towels, good pillows, every amenity we could possibly want or need. We have already booked another stay there for August!

My mother and I started staying here almost 17 years ago when I was visiting nearby Roger Williams University. We fell in love with Newport & the Sea Whale immediately. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, Newport is very close & the beach is right across the street. We have yet to find a better location in the Newport/Middletown/Aquidneck area! I just booked our room for the Boat Show in September and I can't wait. The Sea Whale is a "classic" motel in a gorgeous New England town.

Room Tip: Sunsets over Easton's Pond are gorgeous and a deck room will give you the best view. You also get dual access to your room (slider on the deck and a "front" door).
