I love the feel of Newport's history. I have been in Newport many times. Was there on business and really only sleeping in the room so I decided to stay in a B&B to get the colonial feel. Researched a lot of inn's and B&B's. This group of B&B's came up on Clarke Street and saw that the location was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I apologize for the state of the carpeting in your room. We have replaced the carpeting in the hallways. That room is the only room in the building with carpeting and we have plans to replace it in the near future. However, in the meantime, it should and... More

My wife and I spent two nights in the at the Admiral Farragut Inn and had a wonderful time. The Inn complex is located in a perfect spot for walking to all the neat places in the heart of Newport. We did not have to move our car once we arrived and were able to walk everywhere. The people working... More

My wife and I spent two nights in the Cleveland House of the Admiral Farragut Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as the staff was very courteous attending to our needs and answering any questions we had about getting around Newport. We had a nice room on the second floor with a comfortable king-size bed and spacious bathroom. Although the... More

Upon arriving to the hotel we were given the choice of two rooms. We chose the one with the larger bathroom. The owner was very nice and accommodating. There is a door that is scraped and not painted but it looks like it belongs with the building. The building is old and if it was my hotel I would keep... More

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
