The Inn is in a great locale: if you don’t mind walking most of all the attractions you’d like to see (including the mansions) are within about 1 ½ miles of the Inn. The building had a few rough spots re appearance inside & out: flaking paint and other relatively minor cosmetic details in need of attention. But overall there were no issues with cleanliness at all (dirty lodgings are a cardinal sin in our book). The interior common spaces are all nicely maintained, though tight if shared with other guests. BTW: we found that breakfast was better than most, with unexpectedly good coffee and a nice selection of appetizing pastry, fruit juices and tasty fresh fruit salad. All staff were very amiable & accommodating; our server at breakfast was great- look for the tip jar and recognize the fine service!
One caveat: you may want to ask whether the shower is in good working order. We had an irritating problem with the plumbing the first morning which was easily remedied (really should not have happened), but too late for our morning routine that day. Even considering that one detriment, we found the Admiral Fitzroy to be a fine choice for old Newport!
