Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, and my dog loves the place. Fireplace, short walk to beach, private ocean view balcony, it’s my favorite place in Newport. Walking distance to Nye Beach shops and restaurants.

We had a very relaxing stay and truly loved the views, the staff was incredibly kind, and the room felt safe and clean. Cannot beat that ocean view! The services and location of the hotel was also incredible for walking around and taking in the city for all it has to offer.

We've stayed here many times. We love the location, a quick walk down to the beach and a little walk to Nye beach downtown area. It's affordable, family friendly (the pool and hot tub are great for days when the weather isn't cooperating), and has a great location.
