This was our first stay at a B&B and we were very satisfied. Parking in Newport can get tough and you have to pay at most places but they have their own private lot right next to the inn and it's less than a quarter mile to Thames St where all the shops and restaurants are. It's also less than a half mile from the Newport Visitors Center where you can go to book tours and get information about Newport. It's within walking distance to pretty much everything except the Mansions, unless you absolutely love to walk. There is a Mexican restaurant right behind the inn but we couldn't hear anything until they dropped the bottles in the trash in the morning. Our only issue was that we didn't have an air conditioner in our window and so we had to turn the thermostat way down and try to use that as our AC. It helped a little bit but was very loud and made it hard for me to sleep. The manager Darryl was very nice and takes care of breakfast in the morning which was satisfactory considering that it was complimentary and he also made cookies in the afternoon which were delicious. He was also very helpful with answering any questions you might have or recommending something to do. Can't wait to come back.
