“Nice price for a nice stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

I thought I had already written this review, but I can't find it, so I will write in again. My husband and I stayed at this hotel for his uncle's surprise party. We were here for 4 nights or so during Veterans Day weekend in November. Normally, we don't stay at HoJo but the reviews of this one were really good and several of my husband's family members had worked there growing up. The price of the hotel was so reasonable compared to the other options we looked at. We got a queen bed room on the 2nd floor. The hallway needed to be updated a little and so did our room, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and large. We had a queen sized Murphy Bed (I have NEVER seen or heard of a Murphy bed in a hotel). It was neat. Free wifi, free parking, easy access to downtown Newport. The staff was AWESOME! Helpful and courteous. The hotel has a jacuzzi hot tub, a sauna and an indoor pool which was really nice. The room had a fridge and a microwave which was nice to heat up some of our many leftovers from really good Newport restaurants. The bathroom was nice and the cleaning service did a good job. My only complaint is that the hotel does need to be updated soon, but that is minor considering the price and the location and the staff was great.

Room Tip: Nonsmoking. Rooms have patios/balconies so if worried about security, ask for a 2nd floor room.

clean, convenient location, most pleasant staff! Great place to stay and take in all that Newport has to offer... at an affordable price! Hot tub, pool, and sauna were a nice treat in the evening. Will definitely go back with the kids and grandkids!
