Bay Willows Inn is not a $300+/ night hotel chain and will not live up to those expectations, nor should it. It is an independent motel 15 minutes away from everything in Newport at a fraction of the cost. We were wary based on other reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. It's a clean, comfortable, affordable, pet-friendly place to lay... More

This hotel is the perfect spot for everyone. It is clean, the staff are extremely friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. The price is just right, too, compared to other hotels in the area. For our stay, the breakfast nook was being renovated and the staff gave us all Dunkin Donuts gift cards each day of our 4 day stay. The building... More

Where do I begin? Because we only needed a room for one night (Saturday), this was the only place we could find since everywhere else required a 2-night minimum. We pulled into this establishment around 3:30 in the afternoon and it reminded me distantly of Bate's Motel. Maybe it was the run down look, maybe it was the 'residents' hanging... More

I stayed here for a bachelorette party since it was a bit cheaper than the chain hotels nearby. Never again! The rooms were dirty and seemed like no one has stayed there since 1979. There were no curtains in the bathrooms, the pull out couch had springs poking out of it, luckily we had an air mattress packed. There was... More

I travel to the Middletown area about once a month. I like to support family run businesses so when I passed this Inn I had a nostalgic feeling because it looked like a cute little side of the road motel. I thought I knew what I was getting in to when I booked through expedia. The rates were not cheap.... More

Old motel. Looks like the family lives there. I think they're trying to keep it up but not much to work with. Don't expect amenities. Wifi was almost non existent. However, whomever cleans the rooms does their best.

I reserved this room for a one night stay during the jazz festival in Newport. It was only about 20 min. away from jazz fest which was a real plus for me. The room was quite clean, as were the bathroom & beds but the room had a musty odor. Window A/C looked new and worked well. Had a small... More

This was the only room in town available so we took it. Now I know why it was the last one left. The room itself was relatively clean but it was old and dumpy. The parking lot had garbage overflowing from the dumpster just outside our room as well as every outside garbage can on the complex. The owners obviously... More
