We decided to book a last minute room in Newport to watch the fireworks on 7/5. Being Fourth of July weekend, hotels were almost fully booked and those that had rooms available were charging astronomical prices (which is to be expected). We came across Inns on Bellevue, which had (what we thought was) a reasonable price and decided to book a room - we're typically hotel people but thought since it was only one night, we'd try the Inn. Upon entering the lobby we were greeted by a lady behind the desk. She checked us in and took payment for the room. She explained that there are 4 houses, and we were staying in one off of Bellevue Ave. As she took us outside to walk us to the room, we asked if we could grab our bags from the car. As we walked over to the car to grab our bags, the lady continued to walk down the street - leaving us behind. We had to catch up to her around the corner of another street. She led us to the house (tucked far back from Bellevue Ave. and then realized once we got there, that she forgot the key to the room at the front desk (how do you forget that???). Luckily the room was unlocked so she told us to stop by the front desk to pick up the key when we're ready (which means we would have to walk to the main house, back to the room to lock the door and then be on our way). I was completely horrified by the room. The furniture was old, the room felt and looked dirty.. overall just completely unacceptable. I felt like I was in a frat house. We figured we'd make the best of it and headed out for some lunch. After an hour I decided that there was no way I could drink enough to be okay with going back to that room and sleeping in that bed. Luckily we only live 20 minutes away from Newport, so decided to take the $275.00 as a loss and checked out within an hour and a half of checking in. It was that bad. They reference "European Hotel" on the signage - I'm familiar with European Hotels, having travelled extensively in Europe and never came across a hotel like this. I guess they figure if they reference European Hotel it's acceptable to have dirty rooms?
