“Great overall B&B experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

The location is perfect for seeing the Newport Mansions or the restaurants and nightlife on the Wharf. Nice rooftop deck for breakfast or relaxing with a bottle of wine after a day of sight seeing in Newport. The staff was courteous and friendly. Rooms were large and very clean. Exceeded our expectations in every category. Parking was a couple of blocks away but not an issue since we were mostly walking everywhere.

Room Tip: Top floor may be your best bet if available.

I recently stayed at Pilgrim House Inn from June 22 to June 25. When I arrived I was greeted by Barry who is one of the innkeepers.He provided me with directions to park my car near the auto mechanic. Upon entering my room the air-conditioning was already running. The room was small but comfortable. The bathroom was in good condition and housekeeping did a wonderful job in maintaining the rooms. The deck on the 3rd floor has a great view of the harbor. If you look straight down from the deck you can see the Japanese garden that is maintained by the innkeepers. This prompted me to request a visit to the garden. Debbie who is a wonderful host allowed me access to this garden. Each morning breakfast was available (boiled egg, fresh fruit, cereal, pastries, bagels, english muffins, juice and coffee). And the other guests were also friendly. The innkeepers also keep sherry in their parlor as well as other snacks. The hospitality and the excellent service provided by the innkeepers and staff is something I look forward upon my next visit to Newport. During this visit I did the mansion tours and cliff walk as well as visit the harbor. Newport is a great city to visit.

Just got back from staying here with a friend(BBF) and had a wonderful time! The Inn is very old but quite charming! Our room was Rm#11 located on the third floor. Room was decent size with 2 queen beds and bathroom was small but managable. Breakfast is served on the third floor and the roof top deck is there also. Parking is located a couple of blocks away (2min walk). This was not a problem for us. The Inn is nothing fancy. But the location was fabulous, 1 block /street from Thames St (main st where all action is) Would reccomend to everyone looking for a good affordable and covenient place to stay!

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor are where the roof top deck and breakfast is served.

The web page photography for the Pilgrim House Inn (circa 1800) is beautiful. The palor is very nicely done and comfortable. They even have a liquer and biscuits for late afternoon. It is really very charming. Breakfast is served on the third floor and the patio is off the breakfast room with a beautiful view of the harbor on a clear day. Really, if you don't have a problem with stairs, the breakfast area is wonderful. We stayed in room 8 on the 2nd floor - two queen beds. There is shallow armoire near the bath for a dozen hanging garments and a dresser between the beds. The room is nicely made up but it is small, especially for two beds. It isn't clear in the photo that the beds are pushed against the walls with very little walking space once luggage is added to the room. The bathroom is tiny - as our host explained, it was converted from one of the many fireplaces built into the original home. The shower door was moldy from the inside though it looks clean from the outside (housekeeping tip?). Our host was very nice and helpful; our hostess was a pretty cranky the second morning but that happens. WiFi is provided but impossible to access for whatever reason. There is no on-site parking but parking is provided about 2.5 blocks away. Centrally located for the harbor and pier, easy access to restaurants and historical sites. For the price, I really expected better planned rooms and a cleaner bath.

My husband and I stayed here on our overnight in Newport. This place was lovely and had a lot of the old Victorian charm you would expect in a historic home of this era. The innkeeper is lovely and her staff are helpful and efficient. The 3rd floor room was clean and loved that we didn't have to share a bath. While it was small there is a first floor sitting room and a third floor breakfast area. the little extras like water bottles and candies were nice and the towels were so soft. The parking was a couple of blocks away on a quaint street but appreciated that it is included. We would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed our one night here. It is an old building, like most of the buildings in Newport, but very charming. The innkeeper was very friendly and he helped us out with restaurant choices and made a great breakfast! The place was very clean. The bathroom was small but the room was roomy enough and the air conditioner was pumped cool air (it was in the 90s when we were there!) The price is right, about $160, it has free parking, and it's right in the heart of Newport. There are journals in the room which date back to 2000 (sort of like a pen and paper Trip Advisor) and all of the reviews are great. The rooftop is a great place to watch a sunset. I'm glad we stayed at the Pilgrim House Inn.

Our third-floor room was cozy, clean, and quiet, with comfortable beds. I slept like a log! Bottled water and hard candies on the dresser top gave a nice feeling of welcome. Bathroom small, with a stall shower, but adequate, with hair dryer and soft towels. Location very convenient. No on-site parking, but free parking a block away. Innkeeper Barry was friendly and helpful. Excellent continental breakfast with several options. View from the roof deck was terrific. We'll be back!
