My wife and I had the most wonderful time at the Inn during our Christmas Vacation. Jeanne the Inn Manager was absolutely charming and the room was outstanding! We just booked for a long weekend this summer/2010!

Excellent stay in a comfortable, well-appointed, superbly-staffed B&B. Rooms are beautifully decorated, plenty of space, very comfortable, clean and neat. The inn is located in an ideal spot for Newport - can walk/ride to just about anywhere. Front porch is perfect for relaxing, reading a book, having a refreshment. Breakfast in the morning is amazing - Pam is wonderful and her breakfasts were outstanding. "It's all about you" is her favorite phrase, and she and Jeanie, the manager, made sure our stay was the best. We will be returning again, without a doubt.

What was suppose to be a weekend at Christmas in Newport turned out to be extremely disappointing. When I booked this trip 9 months ago I specifically asked if this Inn decorated for the Christmas season. I was in fact told it did. Upon arriving not only were the dead dried out flowers from Summer still in the pots on the porch there was not one Christmas decoration. Do not go here if you want to be surronded by the beautiful decorations at Christmas....Breakfeast room cold and food was below par. When I complained at arrival I was told that the Inn does not celebrate Christmas and is not part of the "Christmas in Newport" Celebrations....they just capitalize on the Holiday

The Newport Blues Inn was exactly what we needed for our stay. We are 2 sisters and a friend (me) and travel somewhere every year. We like to meet people, eat, laugh, and "chillax". The location, room size, and the BREAKFAST (oh my!!) was just wonderful...did I mention the BREAKFAST? Fresh fruit, delicious entree, great coffee, and conversation with the precious innkeeper made each day a delight. Our room was clean as a pin, quiet, comfortable in every way and close to everything we wanted to do in Newport. They did everything to make our stay special. We would definitely stay at the NBI on another visit and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone thinking about going to Newport.

My husband and I just returned from a weekend at the Newport Blues Inn. We stayed in the Narragansett room on the first floor. The room was gorgeous. Everything was top of the line from bed linens and posh fluffy towels to the sophisticated decor and high end toiletries. Also, the amenities at the Inn are unbelievable!. A fabulous breakfast every morning of homemade muffins, omelets, peach crumb cakes and fresh fruit. In the afternoon they prepare homemade cookies and coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and fruit are always available downstairs in the dining area. From 5 to 6 they have a cocktail hour at one of the 3 properties all located in the center of the action on Pellham Street. It was great getting tips from the inn keeper and other guests on things to do and places to eat. We can't wait to go back in September!

My husband and I planned a quick anniversary get-away to Newport and stayed at the Inn. The room was spacious and comfortable with fluffy pillows and bed. The A/C was a bit musty, but overall the room was fine. Only 2 things kept this from being 5 stars - the breakfast was a bit uninspired (eggs cooked to order, muffins and canned fruit). It was also served in the basement - so no views! Second, the atmosphere is more like a hotel - you never see or interact with the owners or the staff, so you are really on your own to find out about where to go and what to do.

The location is great - just a short walk up from Thames Street - and parking was available up the street a few blocks.

My family (six of us - three couples) decided to stay on the top floor of the NBI while in Newport for a wedding. The setup was perfect for us as we also had access and sole use of the common sitting room and kitchen on this floor. Our innkeeper, Pam, gave us great sightseeing recommendations, service, and cooked delicious breakfasts every day. In comparison to rooms at the hotel where the wedding was held, ours were remarkably better (other guests were complaining about the price and size of their rooms.) Furthermore, the NBI is located central to downtown Newport and it was very easy for us to get around Newport on foot. On top of it all, you get free passes to the Newport Blues Cafe that has great live music!
