Just recently stayed here for a friends wedding. Lorraine was so nice and helpful when it came to suggestions for places to go and try out in Newport! The price was really affordable compared to other Newport hotels. We stayed in the cottage which worked out great having two rooms and a living room! Very friendly staff and cute accommodations!...

We booked by going through google hotels. The price we paid was lower than what most places were charging. We stayed in the Library. Great room 20 foot ceilings, fireplace, private bath, hard wood floors, patio that lead to the pool, price included breakfast. This property is on Bellevue almost directly across from THE ELMS. Cons: We weren't sure if... More

I stayed here a few years ago, and hoped to be able to return to Newport at some time. Some business brought me close by, and was fortunate enough to return to Wayside, and the room that I had the last time. Don has retired, but his sister, Lorraine, is running the B&B now. She is a worthy succesor, friendly,... More

When we pulled up we were a bit surprised at the run down look of the bed and breakfast. Upon entering we felt it was out of a scene from a horror movie with the typical creepy music from an old radio, old furniture and a huge fireplace, like the one in the movie Haunted Mansion. BUT after seeing our... More

A group of 5 of us stayed at the Wayside for a night in September 2013 as there was not much else to choose from, and were not as pleased as others posting here. Don and his sister were an absolute pleasure to deal with and I can't speak higher of them, but the property itself needs an overhaul. We... More

My stay at the Wayside was great, it's a lovely place and close to all the main spots in Newport, I a car and drove to most places, but you can sure walk to the town, I liked to hung around the waterside but you can also walk there. My room was large, clean and bed super comfortable. The room... More

Wayside for my wife and me was an excellent choice. The room we were in number 3 was large immaculate and very nice to stay in. The ourside of the guest house does need some sprucing up but the inside we found to be in nice condition. The owner/host Don was very friendly and we had some interesting conversations. Breakfast...

This was a good stay but since I could only choose average or very good, I went with very good. ****Please note that they do not take credit cards! Only cash or check. We found this out as we were checking out and luckily had a check. The location is great as it is about 1 1/2 blocks from The... More

I've been coming to Newport for the past 10 years and after I discovered Wayside it became my second home. If you are the type that comes to hotels to watch TV all day and eat in the room, looking for Hilton/Sheraton/Clubmed type of experience, I'd say this place is not for you. Simply because it has character, is unique... More

We loved our recent visit to Newport including our 4 day stay at the Wayside Inn. Don Post prides himself on repeat business and is so helpful and accommodating. He advised us on all the great restaurants, walks and mansions in the area. My husband and I plus 2 grown up daughters stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment at the... More
