I agree with other reviewers- we booked this hotel because we were really dismayed at the costs of other places in the Newport area. I know, its July, the height of the season. So we figured-lets just try this. It turned out to be a good value for the money, and we were glad we didn't shell out twice as much to stay in Newport, knowing we would spend little time in the hotel anyway.
It was clean, the beds were comfy, and then rooms pretty up to date. The pool is indoors, which felt sort of weird in the summer, and there is a small hot tub which felt pretty good after a long day of walking.
There is a shuttle on the hour into Newport, and we took it once, but the bad part of this is you can only book round trip while standing in the lobby (you can;t call when you decide when you want to return). That is really inconvenient, so we ended up taking a taxi back, which still at $12 wasn;t bad, considering the first day we parked in Newport to the tune of $42!
And its not far into Newport-just alot of traffic.
And yes, the continental breakfast is a coffee machine, and muffins in plastic bags, and bananas. And no where to sit.
But really, we did not have high expectations of this hotel- so we were pleasantly surprised. We would stay here again.
