“BEFORE Our Stay”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I don't know if anyone has written a review BEFORE they arrive at The Carriage House, but I want to. I find their Front Desk Personal (Alec) WONDERFUL! I called to confirm my reservation for our upcoming Trip and he was BEYOND helpful and kind. If this is any indication as to what our stay will be - well, all I can say is we definitely picked the right Hotel for our stay in Newport RI. Janet

I stayed at this hotel with my 15 year old son when he was participating in a lacrosse event in Portsmouth. The event occurred on 7/5 but we arrived on the 4th. The weather was rotten as there was a hurricane offshore.

Check in was a breeze and our room was spacious and clean. The hotel is located in a residential area and is decorated in classic style. Although I do love the classic style the finishings could use a little bit of refreshing. It has its own parking lot so parking is easy. This place could really be a 5 with just a little work.

The staff was fantastic. Upon arrival we were looking for a place to eat and the staff directed us to a few different places. All the staff members we encountered were very nice and very friendly. It is close to Newport.

Breakfast is served in the lobby. It was not the best breakfast but it was adequate.

The small flaws prevent me from rating this hotel a 5 but I would definitely stay here again. It was a good value for Newport in the summer.

Spent 3 nights with kids, room was spacious and clean. Location is good , 5 mins driving to Newport centre, very friendly staff, breakfast is good but served in the lobby. The terrace is not as big as it seems in the picture on the internet. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: two queens room is big enough for 4

After reading other reviews had some reserves. Our two night stay May 28&29th was not disappointing. Our room was very clean and more room than expected. You are not far from Newport and other attractions. The staff was very helpful in finding places we wanted to go to and places to eat. Our room was in the front and the noise factor was not bad like other reviews said. The continental breakfast in the morning was nothing special but did the trick(good variety) and was nice to sit on the deck eat and read your paper. The shuttle into Newport was worth the price because of traffic and the headache of finding a parking place. Some places are 15-25 dollars. If we go back to this area we would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here in late June for 4 nights. Our room was large and clean. We were on the first floor, overlooking the back deck and near the lobby, but in spite of that, it was pretty quiet. There were some drawbacks....the mattress on the king bed wasn't the most confortable in the world, but it was sleepable. The couch, which was a sofa-bed, needed to be replaced. The cushions practically fell off the couch...it felt like you were going to go with them when you sat on it. Wireless internet was available but very slow and, at times, unreliable. We got the room through a Groupon deal, so the price was reasonable. It's an old building but kept up pretty well and has a lot of potential.

I stayed one night at the Carriage House Inn on June 18, 2014 booked through Groupon. It would have been cost me $130, however, paid $70+Tax. 10 minute driving distance from Bowen's Wharf , very quiet at night because the inn was located at residential area. It had a huge bathroom, almost same size as bedroom, microwave, tv, and coffee maker are available.
Hotel provides soap, shampoo, toothpaste and brush if you ask front desk. Continental breakfast was provided. Hotel has own parking lot. So, I did not have to worry about where to park. The man at reception desk was very friendly. It was very pleasant to stay at the Carriage.

We were on the first floor in Room #6 and were pleasantly surprised at how spacious the room was. The room had a mini fridge and microwave. There is free breakfast, but the dining area is limited, so we ended up bringing the food back to our room, which worked out well. The bed was comfortable, and the furniture a bit dated, but was great for our needs. Outside our window, we saw the long deck with several tables and chairs, but we never noticed any noise from who may have been there. The staff is very friendly. Location was very nice.
