“great hotel off the beaten path”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Rented a room here cause the price was right and the location was suitable. Room was huge and very clean. Staff was very friendly and pool and gym were suitable. Five minute ride to downtown Newport. Definitely would stay there again.

Room Tip: get the suite.

I had a great experience at this Best Western. It was clean, comfortable and had excellent customer service. Downtown Newport is just a quick 5-10 minute drive. We loved our stay here - a great price too! We did not eat on site, so I can't comment on that, but it's really nice to have the option. I also saw signs for shuttle services to downtown, but we drove ourselves.

This is a decent hotel to put your head on a pillow and sleep. Rooms roomy clean and comfortable but after that not much positive other than having an average restaurant on site. Hallways old worn and dim lit, fitness center poor. location to downtown Newport reasonably close by car.

The decor may be a little dated but the rooms have everything you want at this price and are clean and comfortable. The location just north of downtown saves you money but it is an easy 20 minute walk or cheap cab fare to downtown. And the breakfast are excellent! Anything you want from the breakfast menu - and there's a wide choice.

Older Best Western located at gateway to Newport Rhode Island.. Staff pleasant. Typical older furnishings. Room was clean and air handling unit ran quietly.. Suggest king beds for couple comfort as two bedded rooms are not queens. Excellent value for location. Would stay again for an overnight.

This is a great spot that isn't too pricey. In Newport EVERYTHING is pricey, so I was pleased to have found this hotel. It's easy to get to and there is a shuttle that runs all day to get you to the downtown area, beaches and attractions, a HUGE plus! Also a pretty nice restaurant for breakfast WITH A BAR so you can enjoy a mimosa or bloody mary! The staff were completely helpful and pleasant. I loved it!
