this is a great deal. save a huge amount over staying down in Newport which is only 5 minutes away. A nice room,quiet,modern,clean linens and towels and an indoor pool. a restaurant is located on the outside of the Inn and the food is very good. So we can afford to stay over rather than go back over the bridge,sleep... More

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend for a baseball tournament. I chose it based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. I truly have never been let down by choices made on this site until now. We paid $259 a night for a room that was smaller than your 2nd bedroom at home. I understand that it is... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in order to visit the Newport mansions. We found the hotel to be very convenient ( 10 min drive to the mansions), very clean, large room with micro and mini fridg, and had a large, lovely indoor pool (not heated.) The beds and pillows were very comfortable. There was coffee and... More

The title of this revue says it all. What else do you need to know other than that. This is the second time we have stayed, and it will not be the last.

The Newport/Middletown Hojo is a godsend in the summer months. They are the best value for your money ANYWERE in the Newport area. With the average hotel prices starting around 300/night and up, the Hojo makes a Newport vacation possible and enjoyable. The rooms are spacious and provide all the necessary comforts. I have stayed there twice before and have... More

Continued to find them all night and in the morning. At least 20 bugs in all, three different types too. Went to the desk, they said they... More

Rooms were a bit yucky, carpets look and feel like they've never been cleaned. Bathroom was clean.

Room was very nice size. Sliding glass door to small patio (with table & 2 chairs). A/C was very efficient. This would have received 5 stars except for the fact that someone was smoking in their room which set off the fire alarm. By the time the 5th fire truck arrived, it had been figured out? I take off 1... More
