Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
(We were charged almost $400 and below situation was what we got! The morning front desk offered to give us free stay but Expedia already charged us, and I have not received a refund at all!!) There was a spot sticky in linen and we didn’t know until we were getting ready to sleep! Very very gross we had to sleep on the top of the comforter! The room temperature was like living in a refrigerator and even after we asked the night front desk to adjust (no control in the room) it was still freezing like low 60F! Mildew in the shower! Urine spot on the toilet! Restaurant was closed! No vending machine and no any food or snack bar in order for us to buy. It’s located in a middle of no where and our only option was to drive back to downtown! Most of outlets in the room was not functional! They Can’t charge guests for almost $400 (with a “resort” fee?!!!!)and offer NOTHING but a DIRTY ROOM!

The property is beautiful, with great views. The staff was great. The restaurant and bar are a very nice perk, with delicious food and a cheese board on the menu that was really enjoyable! The hotel itself needs to be updated and upgraded. The carpet is old and worn, and the bathrooms are reminiscent of the 70’s. Our room was on the third floor and was not a luxury experience.

The OceanCliff Hotel is a beautiful hotel with spectacular views. Relaxing having a drink while watching the yachts go by throughout the day. It's quiet and in a beautiful area. The room 1- Luxury King was spacious. It does not have a dresser or a refrigerator. The staff very friendly and helpful. A 10 minute drive into downtown Newport. Overall we were very happy.

It is an amazing hotel. It is quiet and peaceful. However, there were no events during our stay. The staff is very attentive. The hotel is very clean. The bath is updated. The view from the hotel is simply amazing. We would definitely return for another stay.
