5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We live about 30 minutes from Newport, lost power during the recent blizzard and decided to find a warm place to stay (had to be pet friendly since we have a Golden Retriever) which is a pretty tall order under the circumstances. Our first visit to this HoJos was unsuccessful because they too were without power but, after several other failed stops (either no rooms or not pet friendly), we came back an hour later and, thankfully, they had power. The staff at the desk was very helpful and anxious to meet our needs including providing a bag of cookies and bags for pet waste cleanup for our dog. They found a room that was "ready" and we moved in. It was immaculate, nicely furnished, and WARM!! We settled in, took hot showers, watched TV and went to bed. Under these circumstances I couldn't have asked for a better experience, however, my sense of the place is that's how it is ALL THE TIME. When I checked out I was welcomed at the desk by name and treated with genuine warmth! And the price was VERY REASONABLE...frankly, I would have paid double what they charged. If you're in Newport and need convenient, clean, reasonable accomodations for a few days, this is a great option!

It was a pleasure having you and your dog stay with us during the Blizzard, thank you for taking the time to share the experience your experience at the hotel. We were happy that National Grid got our power back relatively quickly so that we could offer guests warm and clean accommodations. We hope that we will see you again in the future during better weather conditions.

Kind Regards,

Clean, and modern. We had a king deluxe room (203) on the 2nd floor. It had a private balcony with glass sliding doors. No view of the water or anything but a short drive to anything in newport/middletown. The bed was comfy and clean. I must note that the hotel did have a sort of musty old hotel smell but nothing too bothersome. Bathroom was clean. Water pressure was poor. I would stay again. Much better than the price would lead you to believe!
