This is a nice, older Inn with a great location....right in downtown! We loved the quaintness of it! We stayed off season as a weekend getaway. The prices were very reasonable and the staff was very helpful!

We found the American Cup Inn via the Visitor's Center and stayed two nights. The location was excellent, the breakfast was beautifully presented and tasty. The afternoon tea and sweets was refreshing. And, discounted parking was 100 ft. away.

The people who run this Inn are very friendly and accommodating; however, the parking for senior citizens especially is not acceptable ...You have to take your chances in parking at the public space across the street and we had to wait and wait to find a space and then it was so far from the entrance to the front door...

The location couldn't be better for someone looking to explore Newport.The staff was very friendly and welcoming.The room was clean but be aware they are small bathrooms.The room we stayed in could definitely use a new carpet but the room other than that was fine. They have a nice afternoon tea with pastries and offer a nice breakfast.There was a... More

My husband and I have stayed at American Cup a few times. We have also stayed at a local "considered" upscale hotel in the area. American World Cup Inn transforms you back to an era of the past. It's clean, quaint, and charming. It reminds me of staying at Grandmas when I was a child. If you are looking for... More

Stayed here in October 2014 after reading Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Great location, lovely rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast, which is included, is a feast. The only thing to be aware of us that there is no elevator so all luggage needs to he hauled upstairs. We were in room 301 and the bathroom was minute, but... More

We found a deal for this inn online and lucked out! The inn is right in the center of town and within walking distance to the more commercial wharf area. The inn was quiet and quaint and provided a great breakfast spread! The employees of the inn suggested places to go and what to see.

Boy, maybe we just got lucky, but I'm really surprised at the nagative reviews. I can only conclude that some people didn't understand that this is not a flashy Hyatt mega-business-hotel, it's far more personal than that. Like almost everybody says (even some of the negative reviews), the location could not be better -- we could literally throw a baseball... More

Yes, it is an older, classic urban hotel; each room is different, so if you are fussy, ask to see room first. No elevator if that matters to you. Parking is convenient across the street (discounted by hotel with in/out so now you can walk to everything). Afternoon tea/goodies and breakfast are surely sufficient, but not home made. Wifi in...

If you are an Americas Cup fan, as I am, and expect an AC-themed inn, you will be sadly disappointed. I have no idea how they managed to get permission to use the Americas Cup in their name and logo, but this is a dark, cramped and ancient hotel. The room we stayed in was number 203. It was barely...
