We stayed at The Clarkeston Inn for two nights and didn't want to leave on our last morning. We had excellent service the entire time, starting with a confirmation phone call before we arrived, asking if we preferred our room to be on the warmer or cooler side. We arrived to a very warm welcome from Rick, who gave us our choice of two rooms. We chose the General Rochambeau room, which is decorated beautifully and was nice and toasty, especially since we had a space heater provided for our use. Rick was also very helpful in mentioning a few of the best local places to eat, including an Italian restaurant with a special dinner and wine deal for two. The inn is absolutely beautiful, and the location cannot be better. We parked for free behind the inn and basically left our car there the entire time, as the inn is one block away from Thames Street and Bowen's and Banister's Wharves. It can be tough to navigate the many one way streets and find parking in Newport, so it worked perfectly to be able to leave the car at the inn and walk to everything we wanted to see. We paid $10 per person per morning for a fresh, cooked to order hot breakfast, including eggs, pancakes, french toast and sausages. We thought the quality of the food was excellent for the price. We had fresh towels each day and no problems with a lack of hot water, as a previous review mentioned. We stayed at the inn during the week, which is definitely the way to go if possible. There were only two other couples staying in the building with us, so the quiet and the privacy was lovely. Highly recommend this inn, and will definitely be back to stay here again.
