“NOISY”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

First I want to say the location is great, price was good, breakfast good and staff VERY friendly.

The room was #7 on the first floor and the bathroom looks directly onto the parking lot so the shade is pulled down all the time which is fine but it had a really THICK layer of dust on it which grossed me out. We stayed here 3 nights and not one day it was cleaned.

The noise is unbearable here. The people on either side of us were early risers (6:45am) and when they showered it sounded like a jet engine the whole time. The bed was comfortable but the fact I could hear every noise from the other rooms including someone spitting which I can only assume was after brushing their teeth was disturbing and disgusting. I am looking forward to leaving today to go back home and napping after and not at all restful vacation.

It is a shame because everything else is great about this property but I will never stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. The price was great for Newport at less than $80 per night for a very large room. The only things that were not great....the shower made a loud noise and the breakfast was very limited, but we didn't mind and were satisfied. The staff was exceptional. I really have to compliment "Alex". He was friendly, very outgoing, willing to help or answer questions and greeted you every time you walked in or out. He is a rarity for desk service! The Inn is close to Newport, but hidden on a quiet street in a residential area and not in a business district as most chain hotels.

Lodging in the area is quite expensive, so I selected this hotel based on price. It is a small 23 room hotel, 2 stories. Our room featured a king bed which was comfortable with nice linens. Pillows were abundant. There was a microwave, club sized frig, wardrobe (no closet), set of drawers with tv, writing table with chair and armchair. The bath (and the room itself) was a bit dated without much vanity space, but adequate. The free breakfast consists of coffee, beverages, fruits, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, small bagels & muffins, etc. The coffee was okay. It is quite close to attractions in Newport. Hot water was satisfactory. Our only complaint with the room was that a few areas in the room seem never to have been dusted. The phone was coated with dust. We looked under the bed for a lost earring and ugh! a vast sea of dust. The blind covering the window in the bath was in need of cleaning and/or replacement. Desk staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: We were offered a choice of first or second floor, stayed on the first. It was quiet enough except...

Came in to town for a conference in Newport and couldn't handle the steep prices in town. After arriving here I was ecstatic that it was less than 5 minutes to the conference center in Newport. Staff was incredibly friendly and more than willing to make any accomodations. Alex, at the desk, offered up a great place for dinner. Room was clean and had a micro wave and fridge. What more can you ask for. I look forward to returning to the area with the Mrs and this will be foirst on our places to stay.

Room Tip: Quiet time of year so really can't offer much. Room on first floor was perfect. don't know...

This hotel is a hidden gem in Newport, RI. Clean spacious rooms in a boutique type hotel. Better than average continental breakfast. Only negative is the wireless network, which is very slow. Walkable distance from upper Thames St shops.
