We were looking for a place to stay in Newport for the Columbus Day weekend but most of the hotels in the area were booked. We decided to go a little north to Middletown where we found this nice hotel. Close to the Newport's waterfront (14 minutes), restaurants, and across the street from a shopping center. Cleanliness and a good... More

Stayed here for one night so some friends and I could experience a Newport July 4th. The location is close to Newport but that is probably the only upside. We just wanted a standard hotel for the night, but if you are looking for something nice, this is not the place for you. The hotel is a little dingy and... More

We were late getting in to town. Had no choice. Way over priced for what you got. Think about staying in Jamestown across the river. This town is way to proud of its hotels. Next time we would get in early visit the stuff you want and leave to spend the night at a different city. All hotels way over... More

We stayed at this motel-like place for two reasons: budget and dog. It's pretty much impossible to find a pet friendly hotel in the area. These guys were fine with our middle size dog. We were able to leave her in the room while touring gorgeous Newport. The inn is only about 10 min drive to the Bellvue avenue, which... More

This property was not close to the beaches or the waterfront. In fact it was a $20.00 taxi fare to get to the beach! We awoke in the morning to find ants crawling all over the night stand, and we're all a little creeped out! The shower floor had about three plastic bath mats piled on top of each other... More

If you are looking to go to Middletown/Newport and are trying to do so on a budget this could be your spot. Definitely a lower price point than other hotels for a reason. Accommodations are passable, breakfast was sub-par and hotel staff were just OK. Not surprised to see this hotel at the bottom of the rankings for hotels in... More

Getting a room in Newport at the last minute during the summer is a real challenge. Needing to do that, we called here and got a room. Then we read the reviews - Uh-oh! Nevertheless, we went to the property, and they were willing to show us the room - clean, fresh, spacious, well-equipped, actually quite good for a transient... More

I got a room here for under $50 on Expedia, which I thought was a steal, but on Expedia it said Breakfast was included. In the morning--no breakfast. When I called the front desk they said they never have breakfast in the morning and the Expedia listed this incorrectly and it wasn't their fault etc... Also, the room was pretty... More

We have stayed here "in season" for several years, and felt the facility was adequate. Our stay earlier this month was awful. There was no hot water in the morning. We were told they had one boiler down and you had to run the water for ten minutes or so for it to heat up. We ran the water, but... More

Must be better choices in the Newport area. Prices were so high so I chose this place online thinking "how bad could it be?" First room had black curly hair @ sheets - 2nd room a bit better but still slept in our socks & got the heck out first thing in the am. Common area carpet filthy - pool... More
