We have stayed here a number of times. The Inn is friendly and the rooms are always clean. The location is great and avoids the traffic of Newport. We have stayed in other hotels in Middletown and this is our favorite.

This little simple hotel is spotless. Not much for luxury but the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. Cleaner than a 5 star hotel! I would stay here again loved it. Staff very helpful perfect location 5 min walk to the cliff walk, 10 min drive to town. Can't wait to come back!

My boyfriend and I were coming from Block Island and spending a night in Middletown. We wanted to spend a day in Newport and this was the perfect place. 5 minute drive to Newport harbors and shoppes. Don't come here expecting a continental breakfast or trendy rooms. This was a perfect spot for one night without breaking the bank. We... More

My girlfriend and I are long time vacationers in the center of Newport but with a last minute trip and a desire to hang out at the beach we snagged up a room at Rhea's. What a find! Stayed in the king room with Jacuzzi tub and private deck with a view of the ocean. Comfortable, clean and close to... More

Just got back from a mini vacation. 1st thing was the place was fairly clean and smelled nice. There were only 2 things about our room I didn't like. The comforter had a spot on it (looked like food). I just took it off the bed. Next to the remote were some grape stems on the table. The Inn was... More

OK, you CAN see the sea, but you have to peek around lots of buildings to do it! That being said, we liked this place. A lot. While there is certainly nothing outstanding about it physically, and the rooms have a pretty 1970's feel about them with older tube TV's bolted to the wall, and the bathroom REALLY needs more...

We were looking for a hotel room near Newport RI. We came upon this place while searching on line. What a beautiful place. Clean, comfortable and very welcoming. Tony, our host was great, very friendly and helpful. We didn't know what to expect when we pulled into the lot. When we got to our room we were presently surprised at... More

This small inn has some of the intimacy of a B&B without the risk of having your ear chewed off by guests. The host, Tony, was very welcoming. The place is spotless and looks new. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed, except for old-style tube TVs. Ample breakfast with quality items.

I was looking for a hotel room for August 17th Weekend in Newport to celebrate my Wife's birthday. Fortunately there was not a room to be found in Newport because if there had been I never would have found Rhea's by the Sea. When we arrived we were promptly greeted and given the key to our room. Not being sure... More

We stayed at Rhea's this past weekend after having to leave our other inn due to many issues (see my review for Admiral Weaver). Rhea's had an open room at an awesome price, given the season. No price gouging here! It was SO clean, which we appreciated even more after our previous inn. It's a 3 min walk to the... More
