Nice on outside dingy on inside.
Location good, room was very dissapointing. Toilet wasn't cleaned properly ( #2) when I told staff all they said was that room service wasn't in till next day. Lighting was terrible and when we asked for more there was nothing that could be done. The carpet reeked of old stains of who knows what. Our fold out bed had a blood stain and water stains on sheets along with beach sand. Would never come back.

First time staying in Newport. The best part of this hotel was its location. The bed was also comfortable. Other than that, the hotel needs serious tending. The first room we got was terrible. The phone nor the AC worked. There were dead bugs in the toilet too. They decided to "upgrade" us and the new room was better. However the blind was broken, the faucet drain was clogged and saw a couple roaches in the restroom at night. Be aware that there is no pool just a small spa. Will try another hotel next time.

The information and photos on Expedia were totally misleading! The room did not have a safe, did not have a fridge and was not soundproof. We could hear the bar and noise across the street until 1am. The room was much smaller and cramped then expected.
