5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Great service, great price always clean and very comforting. I have been staying at Best Western with my family since 2011 and I am continuing to book trips and stay at Best Western for consistancy in cleanliness and professionalism. Rates are amazing and locations everywhere!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days/3 nights. The rooms and hallways were clean, there were no strange smells & the desk staff was very helpful. They even got me tea bags when I told them that there were none in my room. The linen & towels were freshened every day.

We stayed in a suite with a king bed. I found that the bed was more comfortable than the couch in the sitting room. I had to use one of the extra pillows in the closet to compensate for the hard couch back. The wind was whistling through the window all night long every night we were there, which bothered my wife. The floors seem to transmit noise very easily. I could hear the people above us tromping around, going back and forth, especially in the morning - although it didn't bother my wife. I also noticed that I could hear my own feet making the floor creak in some spots along the hallway from the elevator to our door. I found the pillows a bit hard for my taste.

The hotel advertises that it is walking distance from the sights in Newport. In my experience it's not that close unless you are young or in shape for walking. You are better off driving or biking. My advice: bring your own pillow if you prefer a soft pillow & choose an bit fancier hotel and one closer to the action in town if you can afford it.

Room Tip: No noises of people above on top floor.

This is an ok place to stay if you are not planning to spend time in the hotel and all of downtown Newport is booked. There is a shuttle service, which is good. The rooms are just ok and smelled like smoke.

Not a family hotel but great place to be very near to downtown Newport for a few days. Right across the street from a small casino and near a few good restaurants. The hotel is very clean and there is a good restaurant/bar within.

We love the Concordville Hotel. We have been there many times. It is clean and beautiful. We will go back. It is close to many sightseeing locations. The staff is great the pool is wonderful for families.

We stay here often and never have an issue. Room was great and the front desk staff was great as usual. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Had dinner in the restaurant. The food was good for the cost.
