“My Stay at the Mainstay Inn”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

My husband and I got a king room and it was roomy and clean. I did luck out an have a microwave and refrigerator in my room. After talking with the maid not all rooms have them so if you request a refrigerator I was told you will be charged $10/night.
My only complaint was that I was on the first floor and could hear the people above me (my husband did not) and my room faced the highway so if you are a light sleeper I would suggest being on the top floor in the back so you don't hear the people above you or the traffic out front.
There is a restaurant on the property and the food was great and reasonably priced.
It right across the road from the slots from those of you who like to gamble.
This is a good place to stay if you are just looking for a place to sleep at night with good food on the premises.

This was a very nice hotel but....the front desk staff is in need of customer service training OR they should hire staff who like their job and assisting people! The front desk just were annoyed and not very helpful.

The best value around Newport. The hotel was clean but a little dated. The staff were helpful especially the room staff/cleaners. You need to drive into town (not walk) but there's a supermarket within ten minutes walk - there's nothing else around the hotel. The on site restaurant was okay - a few problems, e,g, pancakes smelt of garlic (cooked in uncleaned pan??) - did get apologies but still... Overall it was good thank you.

It was difficult to find a hotel in Newport for a decent price. Almost everything right in Newport is well over $200 per night. This hotel is not fancy, but I give it a "very good" rating because it is a great value and a great location. It's about a mile from downtown Newport. We had a standard room with a Kingsize bed. The room was quite spacious, but could have used a few more furnishings. It was very clean and had a refrigerator, a microwave and a very comfortable bed. We were excited that they had an outdoor pool, but it turned out that the pool was in the middle of their parking lot and not very appealing. Other than that it was perfect for a reasonably priced hotel, close to the action. They do have an onsite restaurant that is convenient, but really just average. There are many better dining options only a mile away. They also run a shuttle into Newport.

Room Tip: The King room was great, but ask for one on the second floor and not facing the parking lot.

I stayed here during my precious Rhode Island summer vacation. The room was beautiful, clean & all appliances were functioning well. This place was very reasonable and is dead close to all the attractions Newport has to offer. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends out there that don't have globs of money to waste.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms that have a balcony.

This was the only option left for a last minute stay in Newport. Given this, was pleasantly surprised. Overall the room was incredibly spacious (somehow got a suite with a pull out couch) and was clean. Furniture was a little dinged up but functional. They had a shuttle in and out of Newport downtown that we didn't use but seemed like a reasonable deal given parking rates if you plan to be in town most of the day.

We had friends that stayed at the same hotel - despite paying the same price, they got a smaller room. Not sure how that happened, but surprised that they paid the same price and had about a quarter less of the space. Just something to check in the details of what you are booking.

Overall, if I am planning a trip, I would probably try to stay somewhere else, but would be fine staying here again if there were limited options or if rates compatible with alternatives made sense.

This is my third time to stay at the Best Western in Newport RI for attending the Jazz Festival. I like it because of the value and closeness to the city and jazz festival location of Ft. Adams. I recommend the suite for lots of space, refrigerator, microwave, safe extra room during an extended stay.
