Just stayed for one night at Newport Blues Inn in Oct 2014. Started out in Gooseberry Room. Bath was full of mold in the shower and the soap dish was falling off the wall with it half screwed in. I can assume from that that there is very little inspection of the rooms before renting them out. I complained and... More

First off, let me just say that September and October in Newport are ideal. Super beautiful, perfect fall weekend getaway. I loved every second of my long weekend spent at the Newport Blues Inn, but most of that time was spent out of the Inn. The rooms are a good size, the breakfast is basic, the location is great. There... More

My husband and I had a great get-a-way weekend and used a previously purchased Living Social voucher for our stay at the Newport Blues Inn. Having a late check-in-time - the management called us directly so we were aware of how to obtain our room key and parking pass - this was an appreciated gesture. The room was clean and... More

We went to Newport for the wine and food festival. We stayed on the third floor in the Memphis room with our friends who stayed in the Chicago room. The rooms were very clean and recently renovated. In addition there was a common area to use with a kitchen and a living area. The location is on Pelham Street with... More

Historic Newport is a seaport city filled with old houses and buildings, many restored, or being restored / repurposed. Having stayed in a number of B&Bs in the past, the Newport Blues Inn was average in comparison. A strength is its location. A short walk down the street leads to the wharfs and docks, with abundant restaurants and shopping. An... More

Awesome Inn! Awesome staff! We can't express how great our stay was! Highly recommend staying here. Breakfast was delicious. Room was spotless and staff was very gracious and accommodating. We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit.

I so wanted to say this was a premier bed and breakfast like the AAA 4 diamond hotel we stayed in Cape May, NJ but I found this place missing much. First, the positives. Check-in was easy. That location was only a block away from the Newport Blues Inn. Breakfast was perfectly acceptable. Depending on the day, eggs to order... More

My husband and I stayed at one of the Newport Blues Inn's locations, the Blue Jewel, in August 2014 and we had the most comfortable and restful stay! We were in the Diamond Room. The room itself was very clean with great decor, extremely comfortable bed and bedding and a super clean bathroom. The bathroom has a gorgeous, huge shower... More

The location is great, but the Inn is pretty dated. The room was larger than average, but lying in bed and looking up at a ceiling that is falling apart spoils the ambience (we were in the Harbor Room classified as a luxury suite!). Breakfast was ample if you do not mind the hot menu being one item which is... More

Dear LexMHM, Thank you so much for your feedback, as we are always looking to improve our inns! We regret to hear that your experience was anything less than perfect. Our inns are older, which adds to their quaintness, but also causes the problems of an old house! We are working on renovating the inns, so hopefully if you visit... More
