I arrived on Saturday this August excited to check in and get ready for my friend's nearby wedding at Fort Adams...only to learn that I was moved to another hotel due to "maintenance issues" supposedly to a gorgeous $500 suite! I was informed and persuaded that I would love it and that others were not so lucky. Should have been... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is not plush, but is clean and comfortable. Staff were extremely friendly and got us oriented quickly. Since we did not have a car, we purchased a couple of $8 dollar tickets for the on-demand shuttle run by the Carriage House and sister properties. Simply call the number for the shuttle as often...

We stayed over for a couple of days in June 2016. We had three rooms there all with their own problems like water pressure, stains on curtains and ripped also chairs that sunk to the bottom when you sat on them. Our room #9 had air conditioning problems and had so many ants and moths! When I went out to... More

My fiancé and I recently visited Newport, RI, for the first time. We are both graduate students who needed a long weekend away to relax, and the cost for hotels was a concern for us. We took a chance by staying at The Carriage House Inn because it was very affordable compared to other hotels in the area (Newport is,... More

Great visit second time staying the rooms and main hall have been updated since our last stay the rooms seem much brighter. We traveled with a 3 month old baby the fridge was a must for milk ect. Clean rooms and the quick breakfast hit the spot. Very friendly staff. Will be back!

Total disappointment. I mistakenly believed reviews that talked about elegance and quaintness. Wrong. This is like a Days Inn in a old New England facade. (And I'm not complaining about price because that's a ripoff merely because everything is in Newport summertime.) Instead my disappointment stems from dirty hallway carpets, big white mystery stains on multiple curtains (so either they... More

This was our fourth stay at this hotel in 6 years. Definitely one of the best deals in town. Only about a four minute drive to downtown Newport and the hotel offers shuttle service for $8 a person round-trip for people who don't want to drive. The hotel does have new hardwood flooring in since our last visit so the... More

Quaint Hotel right outside Newport. But website said 2 queen beds. They were not queens. Full at best. I only stayed overnight so I was no big deal. It was a good price for the area. Cute Continental breakfast but I only took the coffee to go.
