“In the heart of historic Newport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We enjoyed a two night stay at this fantastic location in the heart of the historic homes of Newport. Walking distance to everything Newport, Cliffwalk, Shopping, Restaurants and the Newport nightlife. Friendly and helpful staff made us feel right at home. Our room had a fireplace and small private porch overlooking the many church steeples to the harbor. They hotel offers a daily continental breakfast and off road parking at no extra charge. Shhhush..lets keep this one quiet or they will up their fees!
Enjoy,
Michael & Ginny

Not only are the rooms in the inn very nice, there is a lovely roof deck where you can have breakfast and/or sit and enjoy the scenery. It is conveniently located to the center of the town as well as the waterfront. Definitely enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed one night and have the following comments:

Nice sized room in a beautiful building.

Parking was appreciated but getting into and out of parking spots was like trying not to touch the sides while playing Operation!

They have the same song playing on an endless loop in the lobby and the breakfast area. Extremely annoying.

Breakfast was a pleasant surprise...nice selection for a continental breakfast with fresh berries, organic spreads for toast/bagels!

Shower floor (room 101) not sloped well and water runs out onto bathroom floor and seems to be rusting metal door frame.

No towel racks in bathroom.

Closet door opens into bed so you have to go past the door and the open it.

Minifridge is in cabinet/TV stand and makes a ton of heat that gets trapped in the cabinet.

Great book selection. Loved Zombies Hate Stuff!

No access to ice machine. You have to ask the desk staff to go downstairs to fill the bucket.

No vent in the bathroom. Fogs up quick unless you shower with the door open.

Close to everything! Easy to walk to downtown shops and restaurants!

My husband and I stayed in Newport overnight for an impromtu restaurant week getaway. We booked last minute at the Mill Street Inn for an excellent rate including a $60 gift card to use for dinner at one of the participating restaurants. For a Newport hotel room, the size is very large. We had a king bed along with a sofa and coffee table. This would be a great place to stay for many days. The linens were soft and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom is clean and updated with great Aveda toiletries.

They provide an afternoon tea with complimentary coffee, tea and cookies.

The hotel staff was incredibly nice, helpful and accomodating.

The hotel is in a great location on Mill Street, 2 blocks from all the shopping and restaurants on Thames Street.

The Mill Street Inn is very chic and cool, as it is a remodeled factory. The rooms look like Soho-style studio or duplex apartments. The toiletry products are high-end, since they are Aveda products. The staff is helpful and friendly but not intrusive, and you can't beat the location. Walk out the door and you're right in downtown Newport.

We were happy with our stay and found it very relaxing...and also very convenient for the accessible location and parking. The only drawback is breakfast. It's not very good. Granted they do not have an in-house kitchen, but the coffee was cold and the baked goods were stale. The fruits and oatmeal were fine though. I suggest having breakfast somewhere else.

All in all, a great place to stay and we'll be back!

Very lovely inn, fantastic location, great staff. Room was very spacious and clean. Loved the design. It was also very quiet which was great, but still within walking distance of plenty of bars and restaurants. Would absolutely recommend.
