“Best Western Newport RI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Quality service with professional staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The service at check in and out by the staff was professional and pleasant. The food in the restaurant is prepared with care. The presentation is very good and the waitstaff are some of the best that we have encountered. The food and choices are extremely good. Whenever we are in Newport RI, we stay at the Mainstay best western.

I get that Newport is expensive and all that, but US$ 200 and change for an old looking room that´s barely clean can´t be considered good value. Plus, the location isn´t all that wonderful. The only place you can walk to is a cassino and the beaches and restaurants are some 15/20 minutes away by car.

This is a very good hotel. The room are very clean and spacious. The decor appealing. The only thing that keeps me from giving the hotel an excellent or exceptional rating is that I could smell cigarette smoke on the elevator and hallway. I did not smell the smoke that much in my room but it was pronounced in the hallway and elevator.

We stay at this hotel a few times a year. The location is great. Close to the center of town without the high hotel price. The price is always great and the rooms are spacious and clean. We frequently go to the restaurant and lounge for a night cap. It is always nice to see Craig the bartender he is always friendly and makes a nice drink. Gene the shuttle bus driver is also very helpful and nice. He knows alot about Newport and truly enjoys his job.

My wife and i decided to spend the weekend of dec 1 st to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary at the Mainstay in Newport RI .....Its was Thanksgiving evening so we decided to try the restaurant since not much else was open . This turned out to be a huge mistake as the restaurant itself was very very cold and the food was even colder .....their was only one waiter and it took forever to get a coffee . The menu was very small i had the roast pork loin which was awful it was reheated , the mashed potatoes were cold and very hard and the green beans were hard as nails ...My wife had the seafood platter and that was even worse than mine ...so needless to say we didn't eat in the rea=restaurant any more and we stayed there 3 nights ......so do yourself a favor DON'T EAT HERE

Excellent hotel for leisure stay. Little hard to get to the entrance, you have to drive down and turn around and come back, but other than that it is a great place to stay for the price. The bed was great. We've stayed before when visiting Newport.
