“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2005

Stayed at this hotel in June. The hotel is a standard Holiday Inn, clean friendly. They have a small indoor pool and a warm jacuzi which we enjoyed. Breakfast was free and included: fruit, hard boiled eggs, toast, juice , cinammon buns, bagels, cereal, coffee, danish, muffins, etc. We were very happy with our room and the service at the front desk.

Never stay here on New Year's weekend. I moved from a B&B to a one-night stay at this hotel on New Year's Eve 2005. Never again. The place was packed with rowdy families and a group of noisy children right across the hall from me. The halls are loud and echoing and these kids kept going in and out of their rooms slamming the doors. People were coming in at all hours and revelers were partying in the rooms. This hotel is too cheaply made to support a lot of noise. Paper-thin walls and halls.

The breakfast is also mediocre. Very little selection, with stale pastries and breads. No selection of teas or cocoas.

For the cost, you can do better. Shop around....

Stayed at this hotel in early November while visting area colleges. The hotel is your typical middle-priced generic hotel. There was a free breakfast with cinammon buns, bagels, cereal, coffee, danish, muffins, etc. The room was clean and bright, adequate sized bathroom.
Location is great, just about 7 minutes to downtown Newport and there are many strip malls, and restaurants on the the road of the hotel

I subtracted one point from my review because we were disappointed with our free "deluxe continental breakfast." Although we came downstairs a half hour before it was supposed to end, all of the food had run out except for cereal and coffee.

The hotel itself has a new and clean feeling to it and the staff at the front desk were extremely pleasant.

The rooms are in good condition, though narrow. The shower stalls also are small but at least there is plenty of hot water. Our promised internet access worked some of the time but wasn't reliable. Also, our television remote control did not allow us to use the extra features, though the one in my kids' room next door was fine.

We stayed here with five children and they loved the indoor pool. It's tiny and very shallow but that worked well for us since even a 3-year-old could reach bottom. The pool room had a terrible echo and the noise from a few children was deafening. The hot tub was delightful. I didn't use the exercise room but when I peeked in it looked nice.

The hotel's neighborhood on West Main Street, is one long suburban strip-mall sprawl. Our room overlooked Chili's restaurant. At least we had a yummy late-night snack.

I used quickcheck on Tripadvisor to get a good rate - though I still felt I paid more than the value I received. $99 or less would have made me feel better.

This hotel, while self-catering, is a pretty decent find. It looks brand new and has nice rooms and facilities. Add the cost of a room into the mix and this makes for a pleasant stay.
