“Right on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had a lovely stay in a comfortable room, with fireplace. While the weather was beautiful, I imagine it would be just as nice to watch a storm roll in. You do have to plan your beach walk around outgoing/low tide.
Pool area nice. Mattress was starting to show age.
We did eat in the restaurant a few times. I found the breakfast add-on costs (per veggie) turned me off. Perhaps a few more variations in vegetarian scramble or wrap choices for breakfast and other dinner options than pasta. Service was excellent, very attentive staff.
We hope to return!

betjam,

Thank you for the review of your stay. It is great to hear that you had some beautiful weather while you were here but your are correct in that watching the storms come in can be very entertaining as well.

I am sorry to hear that the Veggie Scramble wasn’t to your liking. It is one of our most popular dishes. You may have missed the Vegetarian section at dinner as there are several non-pasta options. We are also open to suggestions as well so if you have a favorite dish or suggestions for additions to the scramble we would love to hear them.

Thanks again for the review and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

Sincerely,

Ric Rabourn
General Manager

In the past I have enjoyed staying at this teriffic hotel. However, I took the 3rd party price, not realizing we were going to be in the daylight basement rooms with no amenities. Very disappointing!

Although we are staying at a competing location in Newport next week, if I stay at the Hallmark again, it will be through their website and I will know the kind of room I am getting for the higher than competing prices in the area.

Room Tip: Make sure not to be on the bottom floor. View is fair, rooms are not.

I am sorry to hear that your stay was not up to our usual standards. You are correct in that booking through our website not only gives you the best variety of room styles, but also the best rates. You may also contact me directly to book your next stay and I will be sure that you get the room and rate that you are accustomed to. You can reach me at ric@hallmarkinns.com.

We love getting away to the coast. Ocean Views from the rooms are awesome. I think most of the rooms have ocean view..
We were lucky to have sunny days for the 2 days we stayed here.Rooms have microwave Owens that came in handy. Grocery stores nearby came in handy as we are vegan and don't prefer eating out. The staff were really good and rooms are neat and cozy.
There is no breakfast included, so factor that in your decision.

We love getting away to the coast. This is our 5th time staying here, This is still our home away from home. We love it. The view is amazing.
Very pet friendly here. Our dogs love sleeping in front of the fire... THE DOGS LOVE IT HERE!
Lots of room for them to roam,
We try to stay in the same room. Our dogs remember it and walk up to the door just like we are at home!
We can not day enough about this place:)

Room Tip: Remember to eat at Georgies.

It is so hard to find a nice resort, within budget, when traveling with 2 big dogs.
From the moment I checked in I was impressed. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We went to our room and was blown away by the cleanliness, size and comfort. Our room was divided into 2 sections consisting of; a Jacuzzi, 2 large TV's, a fireplace, kitchenette, love seat, table, and 2 white robes with a private deck all overlooking the beautifully lite ocean (spot lights were on site to enhance the romantic ambiance of the ocean).
We ended up staying an extra night cause it was so amazing!

jemilybean,

It is great to hear that you had an enjoyable stay in one of our spa rooms. I am also thrilled to hear that you were “blown away by the cleanliness”. Our housekeeping staff works very hard and they will be extremely excited to see that their efforts were noticed

My wife called for reservations and we couldn't have had a better room, even though we didn't read the room suggestions here. We tried it because it was well rated and adjacent to Georgies, which we like.

Fifth (top) floor room at the south end had a great view and easy access via elevator. Being off-season and bad weather the occupancy was low (the whole town seemed abandoned) the room was very quiet except for the storm. This was one of the recently remodeled rooms which was fresh and very clean. Very spacious room with plenty of seating and lighting. Wifi was fast. Two TVs, one for the sitting area and the other for viewing from bed. Gas fireplace. Kitchenette (no stove but with microwave). Fantastic beds.

Staff was friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: Go for the 5th floor for best view.

It is hard to say who enjoyed our stay here more this past Thanksgiving weekend -- us or our dog. We had a lovely room overlooking the gorgeous ocean view, complete with balcony, sitting nook, gas fireplace, king sized bed, kitchenette, and giant spa bathtub. The property also has a pool and hot tub area for those who don't get the spa in their room. Everything was clean and well kept, and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The grill next door is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner as well. Perhaps best of all is the beach, which is long and beautiful. This is a very nice, unpretentious, and reasonably priced resort. We'll be thinking about coming back.
