I paid almost 600.00 to stay in “Newport” the location was not good. The carpets are all stained. When we arrived we were told the pool would not be open and the bar and restaurant were closed. It was not worth the money at all and I won’t be back

Not worth the price
We were unaware that the outdoor pool would not be open yet - especially when the weather called for warm temperatures. Also, we had contacted the front desk for towels to be refreshed (since room cleaning does not take place during our stay), but we never received our request. Additionally, the hallways were dark and VERY confusing to navigate from one hallway to the next. Shower drain was rusty and old, and the pump didn't work for the shampoo container. The beds in the room were comfortable, but there weren't even enough outlets for the room (the table light couldn't be plugged in if needing the coffee maker, etc.), and the vanity power source plug was constantly loose from the wall and would fall out, causing devices to unknowingly lose their charge.

This hotel has 4 stars, however, it has nothing to support that rating. The staff were great and very accommodating, but the amenities were just so-so. No premium channels on the tv and no closet or iron, beds were comfortable, water did not stay warm for long and fridge was full of drinks but not very cold and nothing to indicate it was a mini bar and how much any of it costs to use, so we did not use it at all. Overall a disappointing experience.
