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

Perfect location for walking to the beach and enough restaurants to keep you satisfied. The whole Inn was immaculate! The room with the jacuzzi had a great view of the beach and town. The continental breakfast had all kinds of items and fresh coffee and snacks. Available all day. Nice and helpful staff. The price paid for the 2 nights... More

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...
