For what this hotel was it gets 5 stars. If you want a hotel on the beach this isn't it. If you want a clean convenient comfortable room that's a bargain this is the place to be. The pool is not large, but it's big enough. Same with the exercise room. It has one treadmill, one elliptical, two bikes, and a sit up bench. The fridge in the room was not some little dorm fridge, and the freezer is a real freezer, not one of those little metal trays in the corner of the fridge. It's a five minute drive to downtown Newport. Don't buys snacks in Newport. Go to the Shaws supermarket next door. The only problem I had was the fridge wasn't turned on. I found out the next morning when I went to grab some hummus. I called the front desk, and they left me cash for my lost items which I quickly replaced at the aforementioned Shaws. Breakfast is just apples, bananas, Otis Spunkmeyer muffins, apple or orange juice from a machine, and coffee, but so what. For the money I saved compared with other places I can go to IHOP two doors down, or Ma's Donuts. I didn't come here for a hotel breakfast. Also, the treadmill in the gym room was out of order. Again, so what. I did enough walking in Newport. The staff on every level was super friendly. This is right on the main drag in Middletown, so it's very convenient to Newport. If I know of anyone going to Newport I am going to tell them to go here.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have a small balcony. Rooms on the ground have a small patio, but you'...

I can't give five stars because of the old decor, but the rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. While we didn't use them, they had a pool and workout room. The coffee machine to make special coffee styles by the cup was wonderful in the lobby area. It was also helpful to have an Applebee's attached, so we could have a few drinks and walk to our room. Unexpectedly good for the very reasonable price. Very close to everything we wanted to do.

Room Tip: Great value. I would definately book here again. We booked a room closer to the ocean at a much hi...
