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

Just returned from a two night stay at the Admiral Farragut Inn. This was our second stay at one of owner Rick Farrick's "Inns of Newport" properties this summer. Two months ago we stayed next door at the Cleveland House. We booked a king room with jacuzzi which went for the high season weekend price of $900 including tax. The... More

After reading the other reviews I was wondering if people did any shopping around. It's all supply and demand. I'm sure you will feel this is expensive if you try to book a room on a Friday or Saturday mid summer. However, you'll find the same situation at places in the area. The proprietor is verry friendly and willing to... More

First the good news: the breakfast was awesome and very delicious! But I can only give three points because the room was too little for so much money! The room was clean, but we only had one (!) little window and not enough space for our 2 bags. For 200 Dollars, this is really too much money for too little... More

Of course I had read the reviews so I was not expecting the freezing cold ground floor room, looking out over the parking lot and security lights all night. More like the motel in Psycho! The bed only had one reading light, impossible for a couple, the tiniest bathroom you have ever seen and I live in NYC where bathrooms... More

The position of this inn is perfect, walking distance from the main attractions, clean and very confortable, is a complex of 4 house all in the historical district. Fresh home made breakfast every morning.

Had originally reserved a room for 2 nights at the Clarkeston Inn, which is part of the same 'inns of Newport' group. Did this online and had not seen these inns in person. When we arrived the innkeepers asked if we would like to see another room at the Admiral Farragut across the street. It was unbooked and it would... More

On the positive side: The room was nicely decorated, king size bed was comfortable, the location was a convenient 3 blocks (not 1 block as advertised) from the wharf, towels were thick and of high quality. On the negative side: The bathroom was very small and breakfast was average at best. The parking spaces in the lot next to the... More
