We chose this place for a girls weekend getaway to Newport because of price, and availability. We happened to plan the weekend before knowing that it was coinciding with the Jazz Festival, which explains why everything else was booked up, and this place had only 2 rooms left at the time we booked it. It was the cheapest we could... More

This motel seems to have changed hands recently and the new owners are renovating the motel bit by bit. At arrival we were greeted by a very friendly lady, we were given a bag with some gifts (water, sweets, candybar) which was not expected for such a cheap motel. Also, as they were renovating the breakfast room that we couldn't... More

We try to stay with locally owned housing. This Inn is the old 50's, 60's style building but updated to beachy. Room #15 had a very comfortable king bed, night stands, desk and dresser with marble tops, a small flat screen t.v. and 2 red leather arm chairs I wish I could take home with me. We arrived around noon... More

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
