This is just a really nice place to stay in Newport. The parking is easy and free, you can walk to everything located at the Harbor and if you have to use your car to go to the Mansions you can find an open spot when you return. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms on the second floor... More

Just spent a few days in Newport and had a great stay at The Jailhouse Inn! Perfectly located within walking distance of shops, restaurants & the warfare - we didn't use our car the entire time we were there. Parking was at no charge and plenty of spots were available, we were given a pass to put on our dash... More

What a great find! The rooms are just adorable, clean and.... perfect. The inn has its own parking which is a huge savings in Newport as you can walk from the inn to just about anywhere. The staff is incredibly attentive, and if you're an early riser, there is fresh coffee 24/7. The included continental breakfast is well above average... More

This hotel was very cute. Everything you would need and super close to downtown. We didn't need to move our car at all! The only thing I would say is that the first room we were shown to was a two room suite type with a shared bath in the middle. The smell of bleach was very strong, the rooms... More

Its not a luxury hotel so know that going in. The rooms are small but clean. Location good as waterfront within easy walking distance although neighborhood, while not dangerous, has a couple of bars right nearby and not sure I would want to walk around there late at night.

Christopher greeted us with a batch of warm cookies and that was the beginning of a lovely stay in Newport, RH. The front porch was a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers after a day of walking and touring. Christopher's recommendations for dinner were perfect. The breakfast was quick, easy and satisfying. The... More

Especially Toni the handyman who then set us up with the sister place on Martha's Vineyard for the weekend ! Never imagined we could get in such a nice place on such short notice.We... More

My 3 friends and I recently spent a weekend in Newport, & needed a room with 2 full size beds, which were hard to find in a town full of inns & B&B's typically offering only rooms with 1 king or queen bed. The Jailhouse Inn had the perfect size room for our group of four. The space was sparsely... More

Having been to Newport several times, we had tried other places including a chain hotel. On our first Newport visit, we only made it one night in the chain hotel after stumbling upon this inn. We couldn't have made a better choice. The history of the place is awesome, and so are the old bars still left in the place.... More

Over Easter, we made our annual trek to Newport, but decided to try a different lodging option (see Hyatt Newport) from where we usually stay. I had seen this hotel many times, and my husband's interest was piqued, so we booked. I am so glad we did! The room was spacious (with two adults and two teens, it can get... More
