I would recommend this hotel as it was clean, had a Great shower, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast at the restaurant was great with friendly service. All the staff was really friendly and helpful. The only thing is that it is near the highway and you could hear the noise. I also couldn't find the ice machine on the floor.

Front desk staff (Kathleen and Sarah) were extremely helpful during our stay.They were polite and friendly and went out of their way to meet our requirements. The hotel room is also clean and spacious with a nice decor.

Hotel is not bad at all. We had 4 room for our family vacation; all 4 rooms on the 2nd floor were ok. No smell, no mold, or any other issues listed on other negative reviews. It's no Hyatt, but for $45 a night in Newport, this is a great deal. Sound isolation is poor; we can always hear if someone is chatting on the hall way. Restaurant inside the hotel was surprisingly good. We went in with low expectation and was satisfied with the quality of food. Overall, for $45 a night, I would stay here any day in Newport RI.

Room Tip: Check groupon first.....

This property is an excellent choice if you're in the Newport area. The rooms are large, well lit, and very comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linens of a decent quality. The room had a microwave and small refrigerator. Everything about the room was clean and well cared for. The location of this hotel was perfect for seeing the Mansions of Newport. It was close to eating places and was an easy in and out. The people were also very nice and helpful

Clean, friendly hotel, free parking, free newspapers. You have to pay for breakfast but the restaurant is quite good for both breakfast and dinner.The staff is friendly and helpful. The casino is across the street within easy walking distance, although we did not go there.

Good location, across from casino. Room was great, the BEST bed I have ever slept on! Did not have a chance to try the restaurant but the menu looked appetizing with reasonable prices. Ifyou have mobility problems make sure your room is on the elevator "level."

We stayed at the best western over the mothers day weekend. The staff was very helpful and full of energy. We twice ate in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed good meals at a reasonable price. The room was neat and clean and very quiet. An excellent value for the money. I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.
