Booked this on a last minute trip to newport. The location is absolutely perfect, as it's located in the heart of downtown, where there's great shopping, restaurants and bars. The inn was dated, but that was charming. The rooms were dated and small, but clean and beds were comfortable. Stand-up stall shower was tiny. Bathroom sink was located in the... More

The room was spacious with nice big windows and a decent bathroom. The shower couldve been a little nicer. The bed was comfy and the AC was more... More

I had some excellent crab legs at one of the places (forgot the name!). Only drawback was having to pay to park, but with what we were already paying for the... More

It is help yourself (with microwave and toasters to warm up anything you want). Staff very helpful and friendly and rooms... More

We were looking for a room for one night last week, luckily found Esteban at America's Cup Inn. What a lovely, happy and enthusiastic person! The hotel is old school Newport and very clean. We had an apartment room with a king bed and pull out couch. Fridge/stove/kitchenette - not that we needed it for one night but nice to... More

the hotel is very pricey - you are basically paying for the location (it is perfect). the actual inn and rooms are maybe worth $60 a night - i've stayed at better super 8 and motel 6s. i will state that i am NOT a picky person at all - i could tolerate the outdated/dumpy feel of the room and...

It was my first visit to Newport and I was REALLY happy that I stayed in this place. Room is very nice , location superb, breakfast delicious. Just one minus - no parking at the hotel, so You have to park the car at nearby parking lot for 18 USD.

First time we ventured away from the "harbor hotels" and we were so glad we did. This historic beauty was a pleasure to stay at. And we saved a fortune. Parking a breeze. $18 per day with in and out as you please !!! That's a plus !! Owners and employees awesome. Try it. Try it Try it !

Spent anniversary weekend and it was spacious clean and convenient to walk downtown especially since parking is tough to get. Room has some wear and tear and bug stain on carpet but was very clean otherwise. Staff pleasant and helpful. We would stay again.

My daughter and I stay in America's Cup Inn every year. Location is amazing, close to shops, restaurants and marina. Inns prices are very affordable. All staff, especially front desk gentleman, were amazing. If you are planning a gateway Newport, America's Cup Inn is the place to go! We are definitely going there this year again!!!
