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.
