The Crow's Nest is the best kept secret in Newport. The location couldn't be better - right next to the Bowen's Wharf and all the yummy restaurants, pubs, shops and yachts that make Newport so charming. The staff at the Crow's Nest are always ready to help and make you feel at home. The rooms are clean and comfortable with... More

Scrupulously clean. Soothing blue & white decor. Ten rooms share 2 baths on 3rd floor (with elevator and great ADA access). The rooms and Aloha Cafe provided an income stream for Seaman's Church Institute, a non-profit orgnaization's that lserves seamen and the community in need. Rooms & cafe are high quality and underpriced. I appreciated their mission. Tips: don't let... More

Cozy, well-maintained rooms in an ideal Bowen's Wharf location, steps to shopping, ferry boats and 10 minutes drive to beaches. Easy to just walk around the main streets or walk through the old town center. There are a few hard-to-grab meters out front, but you can park there overnight or there are plenty of meters and parking lots nearby, so... More

The Seaman's Church Institute embodies the heart, charm & rich history of Newport. The staff is very attentive & goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The renovated rooms are comfy, spotless & very reasonably priced! The added treasure is the spirit within the walls of this historic building, and the 90+ years they have been serving... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in November 2013 on the front and back end of a sailing trip. I could not have been more pleased. The location in historic Newport is superb and the price was half of other nearby hotels. It is more of a dorm-like setting with shared bathrooms but, again, it was a bargain for the... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Seamen's Institute. Initially we were looking for accommodations that were less than $300 a night (to attend a Newport wedding). However, when we heard about Seamen's, we were intrigued by its mission, history, and location. from the minute we arrived, we knew it would be a good visit. The staff... More

I had a great time at Seaman's Church Institute. I was traveling without a vehicle and found Newport very accessible from the location of the hotel. As a solo traveler, I found the venue to be safe and quiet. When I asked for a late checkout they allowed me to do so without difficulty. I very much enjoyed my stay... More
