Our hosts, Donna and Richard, along with their friendly puppy, were wonderful! The bedroom was small-ish, but the size and amenities in the tiled bathroom (with Jacuzzi tub) made up for it quickly. The bed was comfortable and toasty warm. The Inn, located on an off-street in downtown Newport, was clean and beautifully decorated with period furniture, art works and... More

We visited the Historic Hill Inn over this past winter, and stayed in the "Budget Room", which amounted to about 120 square feet of a bed, an old CRT television (without working cable) on a dresser, and a bureau with some antique knick-knacks. When we arrived we meet the innkeeper, who offered to upgrade us for an additional charge as... More

We regret that this reviewer did not enjoy the same positive experience as the vast majority of our guests. We appreciate the opportunity to correct the inaccuracies put forth. Lets begin with the facts, none of which the reviewer disclosed. The reviewer booked our least expensive room online where the size & amenities are described in detail, along with photo's... More

I've stayed here every time I come to Newport (about 4 times) and I absolutely love it. The location can't be beat and the hosts, Richard and Donna are both wonderful people-very welcoming, friendly, helpful and gracious. The Inn itself is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. Also, a really nice selection of breakfast items. Highly recommended. Actually my... More

The Historic Hill Inn is a funky and friendly bed and breakfast in the center of Newport. My wife and I arrived to a huge room, with a wonderfully comfortable king-size bed, period and mixed bric-a-brac galore, an old-fashioned 26" tv, and a bottle of champagne nestled in an ice-filled champagne cooler (it was my wife's birthday). This room had... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary in Newport recently and had originally made room reservations at another bed & breakfast in the downtown area. When we arrived to check in we were told there was a mix up with our reservation and the bed and breakfast had no rooms available. That reservation mishap turned out to... More

Richard and Donna were great host and hostess for out 3 day 4 night visit to Newport. They make you feel at home immediately and have wonderful suggestions for where to eat and what to see. The Inn is close to great restaurants, the wharf and shopping. Just a five minute drive to the Mansions and the Ocean walk. Room... More

Spent 2 week there. Room and bathroom were very nice, clean and comfortable. Slept with the windows open every night, I could just hear the fog horn in the distance when falling asleep. Great location for walking to lots of places of interest. Dedicated parking a real plus in that part of town. Couple running the place were very hospitable... More

The place was central, clean, charming, the food was good, and the service awesome! Nice to know: There was a private parking place where you can park your car. There was free wire. This is a great place to stay. Within 2 minutes walking you are at the sea with all its bars and cafes. We arrived in the evening... More

Our stay at Historic Hill Inn was extremely disappointing as it was loud (screaming /yelling), old (needs to be better maintained) dirty ( see below). The city was great, our stay at HHI was awful. From the dirty hair brush provided on the cabinet, bed which creaked, shower that was dirty (old/dirty bath mat) , no proper bathing supplies in... More
