Upgraded 1950s style motel

Posted Jul 31, 2014
Pros: It is quaint. Cost is reasonable. It competes price wise with Rodeway Inn but the feel and look is much better.
Cons: They are still working on things.
Location: Newport has a great number of attractions. Gilded Age mansions...summer cottages, tennis hall of fame, great night life and shopping. Sai
The owners are upgrading an old facility. The outside is nice decorated with flowers Rooms are comfortable and the hosts are very gracious and helpful. Since they do not have breakfast facilities, they provide $5 cards for Dunkin Donuts, across the street.

Should've slept in my car.

Don't map it with google, you may end up in a nicer hotel. 2nd, don't walk on the carpet with bare feet, you will need to wash your feet before jumping into bed -the bottoms looked like I was walking on beach all day long...I wish that was the case. 3rd, the smell of a smokers room - add the window unit air conditioner, and you may wake up feeling like you're asthmatic...

Good hotel, cheap prices

Posted Jul 29, 2014
A few friends and I recently stayed here while attending the Newport Folk Festial. The room was pretty clean, the staff was very kind and helpful. If you are looking for more than a place to sleep, this may not be the place for you. But with that being said, it was a perfect fit for us as a place to sleep and shower after the long festival days!

Good enough

We went for the Newport folk festival. Was fine for the money, considering other hotels in the area were exponentially more expensive. It was..fine. Clean. The room smelled a little funny, but you could tell it was cleaned well. Just outdated. Worth the money for somewhere to sleep.

Cute Inn very close to beach and marina of Newport

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Easily accessible, welcoming staff, checked in early without problem, quiet and beautiful grounds, dog friendly, near pub & DD & BOA ATM. Room clean/tidy but felt stuffy. We got the last room in town last minute and was not disappointed!

Motel many years past its prime

Posted Jul 20, 2014
This motel has probably always been at the bottom of the Middletown lodging chain. And apparently its owner has decided it's not worth spending any money to bring it up a little. In fact, it appears the owner is committed to spending as little money as possible on its upkeep. But why not? The weekend I stayed there, the motel was full despite its rundown condition. In Newport's tight and overpriced hotel market, hotel guests -- especially those on a budget -- will take what they can get. Sure, I've stayed at worst places in other parts of the country. But then again I paid less than a third than what I paid at the Bay Willows Inn. Despite this place being "non-smoking," my room smelled strongly of stale cigarette smoke. And I was troubled to see that the smoke detector had been disabled. I wanted to call the AC window unit the "little engine that couldn't," but luckily the weather was unusually mild that mid-July weekend. At least the bed linen appeared to be clean, and the pillows surprisingly comfortable. No straw mattresses here. In the end, if you're not picky and are on a (Newport) budget, and aren't looking for a romantic getaway or a relaxing vacation rest stop, you probably won't mind staying here.
