Beautiful old building with nice and comfortable rooms and large sitting area with a nice continental breakfast. Located close enough to Newport,RI to be convenient without the high Newport prices. Stayed four nights which were peaceful and quiet. The only negative was one of the men at the front desk who was not at all friendly.

We have stayed here a few times and we really love this place. We were here last December celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff was very helpful and put us in a very nice room, room 4 on the main floor. While they are located in Middletown it's no big deal to drive into Newport. I like that while... More

A lodging is usually easy to classify: it's either part of a chain, with efficient cookie-cutter value, or it's an independent, with (hopefully) a degree of unique charm. [I know there's also dumpy places, but we all try to avoid those]. It's either in the city, giving easy access to urban sites but with a higher price, or it's outside... More

Tired and dated decor, old noisy plumbing, water stains on the bathroom ceiling, poorly placed bed too close to the A/C unit (had to turn the A/C off at night and open the window), dingy room and common areas, road traffic noise, etc. etc. added up to 3 very unsatisfactory nights totaling almost $700 for a room with 2 queen...

Thx to all the TA reviewers as I chose this place from what I read. It was perfect for a one night stay. Front desk staff was very nice and breakfast was much better than I was expecting. The room was fine, bed comfy but we were on the front side and you could hear car noise on the road... More

We drove around and checked out 4 other big chain hotels and all were far away from Newport's downtown yet very expensive. We were so relieved to drive into The Carriage House Inn to find very friendly and helpful staff, a great rate, a very good location (so, not right next to a major highway or road) with mature trees,...

For the money I can't complain, you get what you pay for. The room size was good and although everything is dated it all functions and is reasonably clean and tidy. I'm not sure if this hotel has something against people who book through hotel booking sites instead of directly through them but I was made to feel unwelcome upon... More

Not sure what I expected. My husband is a Choice member but this is first Ascend hotel we've stayed in. The facility is old - I was told after our visit that it used to be a nursing home which explained alot. The rooms were huge & the elevator was what you'd find in a hospital. Bedroom was clean but...
