Chose this hotel on a recent trip to Newport due to Trip Advisor rating higher than the Holiday Inn Express. Seriously, people? My companion had been to the HI.... the HOJO couldn't compare. Yes, it was clean and adequate, but I felt like i was back in 1962 (when I was 6, by the way). It needs a big modernization.... More

We stayed at the Middletown HoJo in May 2014. Our friends had a dog so we needed to find a place that was pet friendly. Our room was just ok, but their room, in the separate pet wing, was not so nice. Although the room was large, it smelled pretty bad. We had a military rate for both rooms, but... More

This is a great place to stay if you can't afford the super high prices of downtown Newport. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The pool is great. The staff is friendly. They offer a shuttle service to downtown Newport. I would stay here again.

I went on a bus trip with my mom's 55 and over community. We stayed at this hotel. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. That's all I was really concerned about. I read another review about the shuttle into town. It said that you had to make a round trip at the desk. My mom and I made... More

I agree with other reviewers- we booked this hotel because we were really dismayed at the costs of other places in the Newport area. I know, its July, the height of the season. So we figured-lets just try this. It turned out to be a good value for the money, and we were glad we didn't shell out twice as... More

An extended stay here with my family was more than we expected. The staff was very friendly and again, the value and location are great. Though the hotel has been around awhile, the laundry was efficient, the rooms looked recently renovated and the beds were nice and firm. The major drawback is the morning "continental breakfast"; it is only a... More

My wife and I stayed at the Howard Johnson in Middletown for a wedding in Newport. It was one of the properties selected by the bride and groom and the most reasonably priced (hotels in the Newport area skew on the very high side, particularly on summer weekends). We had a terrific stay. The only reason why this property gets... More

My family and I were looking to stay in Newport for the Fourth of July, but because we booked late, there was not much available other than the Howard Johnson Inn. The few options that were available were outrageously priced. We had never stayed at a Howard Johnson before, and were rather unsure what to expect. The reviews on tripadvisor... More

We booked for the week of June 30 for 4 days (Sunday through Wednesday) without issue on the Wyndham site as usual.

We stayed 5/27-5/30-good value for this hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and ready for us when we got there, and the little welcome basket with water and a snack was nice. We used the pool once during our stay, and I was sorry we didn't use it sooner. The only disapointment was the "breakfast... More
