Stayed with family. Hotel was fantastic! We had 2 bedrooms with views to ocean, free parking right on front - very convinient location. Rooms are spacious truely! Light polution was to minimum - great for stargazing. Jaccuzi in master bathroom! TV's in all rooms ! Indoor/outdoor pool, shower (they even have sauna!) Separate Kitchen/Dining Area! No much room services - but that's expected. Checkout time early - but we were fine with that.Safety - didn't saw anything dangerous, but I would be cautious a bit - less people at the time of year (April)... Shopping is average (but that's not due to location, just newport in general). Definitely will stay again if going newport!

Some units have a full view of water. Toaster oven did not work. Needs a range to cook. Area is a tourist trap. Expensive. Tub is huge and not necessary. Units could be updated and brighter. Everything is so dark
