We stayed two nights at this motel and found it to be very well situated for a "mansions tour" of Newport. You can walk to the "Cliff Walk" from this motel in about 30 minutes along a very pleasant beach. Our room had a small decked area with a very pleasant view - especially at sunset. Terry was very friendly... More

This is the kind of place we stayed at with our parents but better. If you only like a Westin hotel then keep on going, but if you want a comfortable, clean, quiet spot on a pretty pond with great sunsets and with owners treat your like family, then this place is perfect! It is close to the beach, mansions,... More

We have stayed at the Sea Whale in the past but it has been a few years and I was pleasantly surprised at how great a job that they do maintaining the rooms and the surrounding grounds. The Sea Whale is about a five minute drive to the center of town so if you are looking for a place in... More

Spent the July 4th weekend at the Sea Whale. Very well run and clean motel with a great location. My wife and I did morning runs right out the door either over to Newport along the Cliff Walk or through Middleton on Tukerman Ave. We spent most afternoons at the beach, Third Beach being our favorite. After a day at... More

We stayed at this hotel June 6, 2013, based on good reviews. The reviews were correct. Very friendly and helpful lady runs the place, and she takes pride in ownership. Gorgeous flower baskets hung in the back. Clean rooms, fridge, microwave, tea and coffee. Restaurants, tavern, gas station, etc. within easy walking distance. Right on the road through town, but...

We stayed 3 nights, May 2013. We had a deck level room. The deck would have been lovely had the weather been better. The room itself had a comfortable Queen bed with a pullout sofa (not used). There was a small table and 2 chairs, a microwave and a small refrigerator. Plenty of space for 2 people, would have been... More

I come to this motel every year. It is in walking distance to the Atlantic Beach Club, bars, restaurants, and a gas station. It's enough of out the way from downtown Newport, but close enough to the beach. If you stay, the deck level is worth the extra money to be able to sit and watch the sunset over the... More

We booked late for the Newport Marathon and this was the only place we could book a room close to the start/finish line and we weren't sure what we would find. It turned out to be just fine. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The property is very attractive and well-maintained with a lovely view of Easton Pond.... More

I love different places to stay when traveling other than the typical chain motel. While in the area, we decided to stay at the Sea Whale based on the previous reviews. We didn't get there as early as we wanted, so weren't able to enjoy the sunset over the water. It was nice, though, to sit outside and enjoy the... More
