We have been going to Newport for over 20 years. The hotels have become very pricey, but we always like to stay downtown. America's Cup Inn was perfect. Centrally located and you could walk to everything. The atmosphere was historic and homey. The rooms had character and were very clean. Free breakfast was delicious, with pancakes, prosciutto, fresh fruit, and... More

Stayed in 2 room (with kitchen) pet-friendly apartment. Positives: really friendly, helpful staff; Overall very clean, spacious and cool, with room A/C. Great towels. Excellent location, near park and walking distance to bars and restaurants. Minuses: bed/pillows could do with an update; tub drain gets blocked. Guarunteed parking isn't a given if you arrive at a busy time; it's a... More

This is an average B&B situated in the heart of Newport, Rhode Island. I stayed for a night in one of the rooms and I must say it was 'just ok'. The room size was comfortable and clean although it did have a dusty smell to it and the bathroom was a couple of steps up from camping. However let... More

This was a perfect location for our first time in Newport. This is a small B&B within walking distance from everything. They had a continental breakfast in the morning made by the wonderful ladies in the kitchen. My boyfriend is very tall and had to duck in doorways, but this place didn't break the bank! Would definitely stay again!

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

Stayed here for a night and was very pleasantly surprised. The inn itself was a little dated but that added to its charm. The front desk staff were very nice and welcoming. 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

Stayed here recently based on a recommendation from my brother Stan and was a great experience. The location was absolutely perfect with lots of great nearby shops and restaurants. 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

I am lucky in being able to travel all over the world but I can honestly say i have never ever seen so much different types of food for breakfast all on one round table in their dining room. 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...
