We hold our quarterly meetings at this hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the hotel is tidy. The rooms are clean and comfortable and house a refrigerator, microwave, and Keurig machine. The location is a bit funky but there are plenty of places to shop and eat nearby. Underground parking is free and easily accessible. For our needs,... More

We stayed here for a quick, one night transition to another locale. We had a room with two queen beds. The room was large and spacious, had a tv, coffee machine, microwave and fridge. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. No shampoo in the bathroom, but bathroom was clean. Shower head nice, but no volume control. I wish CA... More

I had a great stay here, and I especially want to recognize front desk attendant Jesse. I arrived having just discovered a small problem with my reservation owing to a glitch in the online reservations system. As I was explaining the problem to Jesse, another guest came up to the desk to let him know the elevator wasn't working, and... More

I know isn't a "5 star" hotel with room service and a concierge, but the service is excellent and the rooms are immaculate. We have stayed there over 20 times in the last decade and they have always been great. I would recommend a room with a soaking tub, so relaxing!

Upon entering the Lobby we were greeted with a smile from Hotel Attendant Jesse. He was very friendly. We asked a few questions and he graciously answered all of them. Even though the hotel is small but it provides access for all special needs. For our purposes it was centrally located, we came to enjoy the Newport Jazz Festival and... More
