This is a budget hotel so very straight forward room, but the bed was good. It had microwave and good tv, and it was clean and nice. Our teenage boys loved the hotel because of the pool and the small exercise room. My only complaint coming from Europe was the "Continental Breakfast" they claimed to serve. In Europe a cake... More

Most HJ are for the budget traveler. This one is no exception except that it has some pretty nice family amenities like an indoor pool, fitness center and guest laundry. The hotel is two stories, no elevator. It is surprisingly long to walk from one end to the other. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, with microwave and refrigerator. They... More

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
