We loved the two days we spent there.The Manager was so accommodating. They might consider new beds as the one we stayed in could have been more comfortable. The free continental breakfast was so nice and the coffee was VERY tasty! Don't go down the street to the chain hotel. This is home away from home

This inn is gorgeous, competitive pricing, and a hidden gem. It is literally right over the border from Newport, so it's beach walkable. Very very clean, breakfast options included, and free parking. Very accommodating, great for families or couples. Its relatively small, stay on the second or third floor if you sleep in (kitchen on the first floor). Bathrooms are... More

Found that this was just a few miles from Newport, but what a find! Rick is the hospitable host, and it is a quiet, clean room , and the location is so key to allow you to go anywhere you want. Besides Newport, we travelled to Naragansett and Pt. Judith. However, right there is a beach ( no waves) and... More

Very clean rooms and lobby, complimentary breakfast has many options. Unlike many hotels but smells fresh unlike many close to the ocean. The hotel is in a great location with the beach a short walk from the hotel. The owner is on site to make sure you have a great experience, It's a very close drive to Newport although we... More

As others said, this is a wonderfully convenient Inn,... More

Once again we stayed in Rhea's Inn. The place is always clean and comfortable. The TV's have been updated to flat screens and the breakfast buffet choices have been increased. We will go back again. First Beach is across the street, so there is no need to drive and the Cliff Walk is also nearby.

My family spent a long weekend at Rhea's Inn by the Sea July 8-10. We chose the bed and breakfast because we wanted something cozy and close to the beach. We brought our 2 sons who are 4 and 1 and we couldn't of picked a better place. The room was a great size and very clean! The staff was... More

Rhea's definitely lives up to its high reviews. Its location can't be beat, but most important is how spotlessly clean it is, how comfortable the rooms are, and how nice the management is. The food for breakfast is super generous and available to snack on throughout the day, too. We will definitely return as often as we can! Of note:... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in July. This place is very clean, staff is super friendly, and location is great - walking distance to the beach. The common room is stocked with breakfast and snack items as well as coffee/tea and ice. We also had a mini fridge in our room to keep drinks and water cold. We... More
