Reasonable, low keyPosted Sep 27, 2014
Close enough to see beach from second story. All low key, not fussy. Staff friendly. Only complaint - pillows! But would stay again. Close to Newport, cliff walk begins at local beach, fun to watch surfers.

Nice but too many spiders everywhere on outside porches.

A nice stray around Newport, RIPosted Sep 2, 2014
First of all this is not a 5 stars hotel and we did not paid for that. This is an old hotel but clean, comfortable, well situated with very competitive price. Peoples at the desk are very polite and friendly. They have a all day unlimited trips shuttle available for a flat rate ($8.00). Breakfast is basic but very good. If you need eggs & bacon, there are restaurants waiting for you downtown. I would recommend that hotel for people that need a place to have a shower and a sleep after a day at the beach, walking the Cliff or visiting the mansions. Other than that, if you are looking for a pool, a hot tub or a spa, go somewhere else and pay for it.

Charming no frills getawayPosted Sep 2, 2014
Location: There's a shuttle to downtown Newport or it's just a couple of miles by foot, though the sidewalk briefly disappears. The beach is even closer.
Rooms at this hotel open right onto the parking lot and the furniture and floor tile had seen better days, but the location was convenient with a nice breeze off the water and a lawn to enjoy it in, the staff was nice, the room was clean, and it seemed to be efficiently run. We had a lovely time.

Close To The What's HappeningPosted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: The air conditioner.
Location: Close to Cliff Walk/Mansions, Thames Street.
Stayed here many years ago. Hotel was in need of basic maintenance, painting, etc. Appeared to be neglected. Room smelled musty and bathroom was definitely not cleaned. Fresh towels out but still had hair in the tub and on the floor. Bed was hard and barely got any sleep. Finally, the one staff member we dealt with had no personality, never made eye contact when taking my credit card and handing it back. Obviously, just there to do a job without good customer service. We won't be back.

This motel/inn being replaced after this season wiPosted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: Hot water, great water pressure, hot coffee available in little breakfast room 24/7' courteous and responsive staff, great piece of property,
Cons: Just about everything else, But the current facility is being rebuilt and will soon be history,
Location: Great location away from the crowds and hyper activity of Newport. Easy access to Newport. Beach close by. Good number of local restaurants
Beautiful, sweeping views from the second floor - of the water, surrounding land, cars traveling to and fro, hot, fresh coffee available 24 -7, pretty sad continental breakfast, no fruits, nothing not processed. The hotel staff great. The rooms pretty basic with old, tired furniture, old tics, no coffee in rooms. windows that don't open, cheap lawn chairs outside- all amid a spectacular setting close to Newport and some good local restaurants. This inn is being replaced with a huge complex, full service facility when the present one is torn down this year. So if you like funky and low- cost better book before the season ends! .

BAD!!Posted Aug 12, 2014
Cons: Tear it down please
the property is a piece of junk - we were in a shock when we saw what we got for the money we paid. The entire property and the rooms were completely in shambles and the rooms were terrible. It looked more like a place out of a third world ghetto. the rooms were musty and smelling and the bathrooms were disgusting with peeled ceiling and water coming out of the shower spraying all around. we felt unclean! that they are trashing the entire property and re-building over the next 18 mths is of no concern to me - the authorities should shut this property down.

Close to beach only good thingPosted Aug 10, 2014
We were told hair dryers in all rooms. Our did not. Rooms seemed musty. Did have great view of beach and within walking distance to beach. Did find out will be closing in oct and will be demolished for new hotel-condos.
