Rough week, wife and I decided we had to get away. A quick check of TA and the decision was made to head south to Newport, RI. A quick call to the Admiral Farragut Inn put me in touch with Rick. Rick immediately struck me as a straightforward, down to earth person. He explained what they had available, made some... More

You don't have to believe my review. Just ask to see the room before you give the guy your credit card at check in. If you don't, stay at your own risk. The people that gave this place 5 stars are either being paid or have never stayed in an establishment with any kind of service. Our room was in... More

I recently stayed two nights at the Admiral Farragut Inn and was so impressed by everything from the low room rates, to the most genuine and kind service, to how well they have captured a real sense of what It may have been like to live in Newport and be apart of the Revolutionary War 300 years ago. If you... More

So because it was a b&b we were expecting something different...the room was average, really small actually. There was a breakfast included in with our room but it was average and even though we set a time to be down to breakfast it was packed and had to wait for a spot to eat to free up. Overall it was...

We stayed for one night during a busy holiday weekend and was completely disappointed. As soon as we entered the hotel we were faced with the tacky murals and dirty walls. The "upgraded" room we were given was on the third floor which meant we had to climb up 3 flights of badly stained, filthy carpet. Imagine hundreds of people... More

We stayed here for one night last weekend. My wife and I have traveled all over the world and stayed in the full gamut of hotels from awful hostels (in our younger years) to five star hotels varying from Chateaux and Relais properties to Rosewood Group resorts. I have never stayed in a hotel room that was more out of... More

I stayed in the Admiral Farragut Inn with my elderly mother recently. We were both very happy with this historic old Inn and with the excellent service we got. The location is excellent - walking distance to the waterfront shops and right in the middle of the historic area of Newport. And we had plenty of room - I do... More

To start we were booked into the Melville inn next door, but when shown our room it was tiny and dark, no TV or space, bare wires hanging from ceiling, we were on 16 day road trip with plenty of luggage and would have been impossible for our 2 suitcases, we complained and was changed to Admiral farragut. I so... More

We went to the Admiral Farragut Inn on our honeymoon nearly 20 years ago. It was small then and still small after all these years. It is quaint, and the owners are nice but the Inn is really too small for EXTENDED comfort and amenities. It is an old inn and although the furnishings are new and very nice and... More

We had a room on the top floor, it was small but comfortable for two people. It had a rustic feel and the sailing theme was a nice touch of New England. The owner Rick was friendly and made things easy. The breakfast was simple but all you could ask for, including fresh squeezed orange juice. We had the mid-week... More
