My wife and I stayed here for a quick getaway from the the kids. The hotel was clean, front desk personnel very helpful and the location was perfect. Parking could be an issue when crowded but we didn't have any issues. Overall a great stay, booked through priceline and got a great deal.

Lovely, harbor view from our top floor room. Very clean. Very accommodating, friendly staff. There's a waterfront pub downstairs. The bed was extremely comfortable. However, we found it odd, that we received no maid service. No bed made, no towels folded/replaced. Centrally located, you can park free and walk to many of the prime areas of Newport. Street parking is... More

Thank you for this great feedback! It allows us to continue to enhance the vacation experience at our resort. As we are a vacation ownership property (vs a hotel), housekeeping services are performed for week long stays, but also as requested for stays shorter than 7 nights. We hope that you will visit us again in the future! More

Centrally located, within walking distance to shops, restaurants and behond the Ann St Landing for ferry access makes this one of the best places to stay in Newport as far as location is concerned. It is also within walking distance to the Bellevue Avenue "Cottages" which is a huge plus. Add to that a harbor view (request it, it might... More

So glad I came upon this hotel on TA. I asked for a harbor view room and was lucky enough to get one. Bonus, it was on the top floor! I have been in love with the Narragansett Bay since I first flew into Providence TF Green Airport four years ago. The view from the living area is phenomenal! The... More

Best view in town, great balcony, perfect location right in the middle of Thames St shopping and restaurants. Can't wait to go back. Didn't see the staff much, but didn't need them. Room was well appointed and we came and went as we pleased. Great food truck festival was going on next door. What a treat!!

We were lucky enough to get a last-minute timeshare week here for the middle of August- We've been here before but this is considered a superior one bedroom where the bedroom is actually off to the side so it's quiet and you won't hear the doors slamming more people walking down the hallway. We really enjoyed our week here very... More

PROS: Excellent location, roof deck with beautiful panoramic view of Narragansett Bay, free parking, clean & spacious room. CONS: no ice machine on our floor, no pool, no breakfast, no harbor view: they cannot guarantee a room with a harbor view, but the roof deck makes up for it. Service was "meh". Rate was reasonable for peak summer season. Overall... More

Thank you for your positive feed back Alicia C! While we do lack many amenities our sister properties have as well as other hotels in the area we make up in our location and views. I am sorry that our service feel below your expectations as this is something we are consistently striving for! Looking forward to you next visit! More

We rented from a timeshare owner for a few nights and got an amazing deal. The location is fabulous. The roof deck was a pretty spot to have a glass of wine before sunset. The walls are very thin and we could even see light from our neighbors coming through cracks where the walls and ceiling meet. There was no... More

After many years of staying in Newport with our kids, we came for a couples weekend. This location was truly incredible, in the middle of it all on Lower Thames street. But, because it is set back from the street with stunning views of the harbor, there is very little noise. The rooms are well appointed, like a comfort inn... More
