This inn is decorated nicely with very clean rooms. Breakfast buffet was a nice assortment of pastries, fruit and eggs. Lots of parking in rear. Our room in the rear was nice and quiet. Location allows for walking all of Newport. I will definitely return.

This was the fourth time I'd visited Newport RI and my third time at the Admiral Fitzroy Inn. Newport RI is, apparently, one of the most expensive places to stay in the USA but this Inn manages to combine a central, convenient Thames Street location with big, comfortable rooms (beds like blissful sink-into NESTS), a breakfast in which all items...

My girlfriend and I just stayed here 1 night this past Sunday and found the place to be very welcoming and comfortable. You may expect some noise being right on Thames street, but we heard nothing, sweet location, walking distance to most of the fun spots. the room was very clean; we had a little semi-private balcony area that really...

Hi Larisa, First of all thank you for such a kind review highlighting some of the perks of the inn. We are also really glad you mentioned the construction noise. Since we have not had any previous guest feedback about this, we didn't realize it was a disturbance. We are now going through steps to notify guests prior to arrival... More

We came in February 2015 for a birthday weekend. I'd recommend this inn for its great location on Thames Street, its clean well-kept rooms, its friendly service, and very tasty breakfast. We had a very nice stay here. The inn is walkable to most places in the heart of Newport. It provides parking which is a wonderful perk. The breakfast... More

Highly recommended. Short walk to everything Newport. Nice room. Breakfast was very good - good coffee, bagels, muffins, trick is to ask for a breakfast sandwich. Staff was very nice. Bottle of wine was waiting in our room.
