We have stayed in Newport before and it was great but this was our first stay at the Bouchard. Upon arrival the owners wife came out to help with the bags and show us our rooms before we even checked in. Which was a plus. Carmen the hostess that we dealt with was also very helpful and pleasant. The rooms... More

We stayed here on our wedding anniversary and were very pleased with the hotel. It is located on a busy commercial street very near to everything, and the hotel offers parking on site which was a plus. Our room was not big but had everything that we needed, including a coffee and tea maker, and both room and bathroom were... More

Room rate includes a delivery of hot pastries and yogurt to your door in the morning with a Keuring In the room for coffee. Our room ( The Cynthia) had a king size bed was only had one night table ,... More

Loved that this inn was not a bed and breakfast but they still delivered pastries to your door in the morning! Which were delicious! Our room had everything we needed including a refrigerator so it was perfect. Also perfect location as you can walk to almost everything. Will definitely be back!

We stayed at this very nice Inn over the summer and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and well appointed with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was friendly. The best part of the stay arrived early in the morning. The Inn provided a warm, flaky and absolutely amazing croissant, fresh yogurt and... More

We stayed there one night. The hotel is located in a commercial street , walking distance to the main activities and restaurants. The hotel is quiet with a style which could be considered as either outdated or typical. Remove the flat screen and you could imagine you are back in the 1900's... The room is clean. There is a parking... More

We typically do not enjoy a traditional b&b experience with flowery wallpaper, overfurnished rooms, and chatty owners. This inn was perfect for us. A comfy bed, great location, modern clean amenities. Breakfast snack delivered to your door in the morning, kuerig coffee in the room. We wil recommend this place to family and friends.

The room was great, cheerful and clean. The pastries were fabulous! Getting ice was always a bit of an ordeal, especially on Tuesday night when the restaurant was closed. We often felt like we were getting in the way of the restaurant staff. Construction was being done by the inn door and we had to come and go through the... More
