We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Rhode Island. Its location is good - tucked away in a quiet residential street about 5 -10 minutes drive into central Newport and just off the main road into town.
The rooms were fine - albeit a little dated. The staff were pretty casual, but friendly.
However I felt the hotel seemed to be a little confused about who it was targeting. It looked like a quaint boutique style hotel from the outside, yet it didn't offer some fairly basic services.
There was no laundry despite there being a laundry bag in the room (I was directed to a laundromat near Walmart).
What's described as a continental breakfast was bizarre. You tick a piece of paper in the evening, and then a muffin wrapped in cellophane, a piece of cake or a breakfast roll is delivered to your room the next morning. I'm not sure why they bother, as it was pretty inadequate as a breakfast.
So overall I left with mixed feelings about the Carriage House Inn. It was certainly different from the usual chains - yet in several ways the service on offer should be much better.
