SEA WHALE REVIEW So many good things to say about the Sea Whale. We have been staying there for several years now, usually multiple times a year. The location is awesome. Situated right on Aquidneck Ave in Middletown you can walk to many area attractions. From restaurants to lounges to shops and Easton's beach. You can take the 2 mile... More

Don't let the outside fool you. Your greeted by the owner who gives you her cell number if you need anything. We had a queen size bedroom on the first floor and the 1st thing you see when you go into the parking area is a nice area to sit and relax on a lounge chair or picnic table with... More

My mom, sister, and I went on a New England road trip In July 2016. Our first stop was the Newport. We stayed at the Sea Whale and couldn't have asked for a better first stop. It is a great location … easy walk to the beach, cliff walk, and downtown Newport. You can also drive and Jeff was great... More

I needed a room in a pinch for my child's college orientation. My other child and I stayed here for one night. We had a "garden view" room. The room itself could use a little updating in the bathroom, but it was clean and the complimentary necessities were neatly placed. I met Teri during check-in. She is very nice and... More

My wife and I loved our stay here. Our room had a beautiful view across the bay. The room was very clean, modern, quiet. There is a giant lawn to relax on and enjoy the view. And it was a great value for the money. I definitely recommend the Sea Whale.

Very clean , great view over the bay. Nice spot to watch the sunset. Easy to get to the beach or Newport from. Bike lane outside the door. Food walking distance. Fridge in room. Really clean! Easy to park. What else do you need? Owners are nice to talk to and can guide you as needed.

Place was fabulous. Immaculate and up to date. Enjoyed the deck with a favorite book and a glass of wine. Walk to everything. Can't wait to go back. Perfect location and reasonable rates. Enjoyed myself and planning on another long weekend.

I recently stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed myself, The grounds and our room were immaculate and the owners could not have been nicer. I would recommend The Whale Tale to anyone! Quiet and clean mean everything to a traveler and this place was just that!

The Sea Whale is not much to look at from the road but don't be deceived, this a sweet little spot. The rooms are small but very clean and the top rooms have a deck overlooking the water and nearby 1st Beach. The owner was setting out flower baskets when we arrived and was clearly proud of his establishment. The... More
