Stayed in Newport for two nights. The location of these guest rooms is great, but extremely outdated. A nice new paint job would certainly help. The size and cleanliness was good, but it's not warm or inviting. The ACs are very loud, TV old and not very clear. If you are looking for a great location near the water and... More

We stayed in a double room. It was very clean with decent space, nice linens, good size bathroom, mini frig, TV etc. The best part is having seating right outside your room that looks over Newport Harbor. And the location can not be beat. And in the end the price is very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area.... More

I booked our stay through Groupon for two nights over Christmas. I didn't see the pictures from a guest on your site until afterward and was worried I'd made a mistake. We arrived Christmas eve and the weather was rainy. We checked in at the Clarke Cooke House (not the Harbor Master) after parking at the end of the wharf.... More

We absolutely love this place. It's so quaint, right on the water. Not fancy , but the bathroom has recently been redone and the floors have been replaced . Do you really stay in a hotel because of the paint and furniture? Then stay somewhere else. This place is a perfect get away, especially on New Years Eve. Walk to... More

We used a Groupon this past July to stay here. We had two rooms reserved. One was at the end of the dock and had a deck we could sit on but it was older than the pictures and had a VERY loud air conditioner. The other room was half way down the wharf in the middle of the shopping.... More

Excellent, Half the cost of the generic waterfront hotels, with the cool experience of feeling like you're part of the harbor community. At the end of Bannister's wharf, right on the harbor. Rooms were clean with good a/c, TV, coffee maker, hot shower and amazing views. To park you drive right down the pedestrian street to the end. There are... More

I will start by saying that we didn't actually stay overnight, yet. We booked our room through Groupon and I requested the two bedroom suite with deck. Not the kitchenette. I accidentally used the wrong credit card so I had to cancel the reservation to refund it and re-book it. I figured it would be fine, Groupon refunds things the... More

We purchased a one night stay through groupon, and as soon as we arrived we wished we had spent a few more days here. The room was very clean- we stayed in room #4- which had no carpeting, hardwood floors instead. The beds were very comfortable. The style of the rooms were cottage-style, not super modern. But that gave it... More

I purchased a two night stay from Groupon. We keep our sailboat in RI and know the area. We invited our friends to join us for dinner one night and they thought it was a great value. They said they would get a room when we were down again too. The rooms are a bit worn (one bed slid off... More

Great location, that's for sure and pet friendly, but it goes downhill from there. Advertised as a 2 bedroom, but when you have to walk through 1 to get to the other, well certainly not 2 private bed rooms. A funky oder. Paint pealing. Water leak marks. Rustic at best furniture. Baseboard heaters not all working, bent facias, missing nobs.... More
