Rick is a sneaky businessman. Lied about the property parking cost etc etc. assume no parking if he tells you there is. Assume a disgusting room if he tells you it's renovated. Assume to be taken for a ride. We mentioned to him the poor reviews before booking- And he said oh don't believe those things. Well believe this one.... More

My wife, myself and our 3rd grade son stayed over the Memorial Day weekend on the top floor. We were scared a little by the bad reviews but desperate considering the last minute decision to go to Newport. Turned out staff was very good calling us on the road at 2am without prompting to make sure we were not lost,... More

I stayed here with friends Memorial Day weekend 2013 (Friday - Monday) and it was an awful experience. The owner moved us to another location (he owns 6 different locations) to accommodate a 3rd person in our group but failed to tell us that it wasn't in the same location as the other 5 properties and was farther away from...

My husband and I stayed here last week for a last minute end of the summer night. We were looking for a place that let us bring our dog, and the owners said this was their only place they allowed it because the whole house had wood floors. The room was average, bed and bathroom reasonably comfortable. We actually had... More

Was looking for a last minute one night room in Newport and ended up here. The Inns of Newport reception person worked with us to find something and was very honest in saying it was a very small room and the last one they had. However, the rest of the description is what I want to tell. The Elm Street... More

If you want an extremely unpleasant experience, then you should definitely make a reservation here! The room pictured on the website is quite beautiful, but in reality, it is a nightmare. When we checked in, we were expecting a lovely suite to accommodate myself and my daughters, but what we found was quite the opposite! Pictured on the room's photo... More

Recently stayed at The Elm Street inn. Found it to be in a nice area of town. The only thing that I really thought was strange was that we had to go back to the Clarke house to get our breakfast in the morning. It was about a 8 block walk. Not so terrible but this wasn't explained to us... More

My Fiance and I took a one night trip down to Newport and stayed at the Elm St Inn. The room and Inn were very clean and comfortable and the staff was absolutely outstanding. We were originally going to stay in the Clarke House which was also nice but there was a wedding party so the owner offered us a... More

The Elm St. Inn is a perfect location for any occasion. I resently spent the weekend there with a bunch of girlfriends and we had a blast! Not only is it located in walking distance from the downtown scene and shops, the rooms were kept in impeccable condition and the staff was always willing and looking to help. The canopy... More
