We stayed three nights while visiting the area for the first time and enjoyed one of the rooms with a king-size bed. As others have mentioned, this is a well-run, very clean establishment. The "continental-style" breakfast is more than adequate with a large, fresh selection of muffins, bagels, cereals, juice, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, etc. There are snack items like... More

A small place with just 9 rooms, run by a friendly guy named Tony who was a pleasure to interface with. Accomodations in this area are on the pricy side, and all we wanted was clean, comfortable, and reasonable for 2 nights while visiting an old friend. This matched our needs very well. The place is on a busy road... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at Rhea's Inn. It was a very welcoming place. The rooms were comfortable and super clean. There was a variety of food and snacks available all day long. My husband was especially delighted to smell the coffee brewing each morning. The manager didn't hesitate to accommodate our needs. We especially enjoyed walking... More

Came to the Newport area with my wife for a 1 night getaway and was fortunate enough to stay at Rhea's. Comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, great location, very nice setup in the lobby area with coffee, various breakfast items (muffins, cereal, bagels, juices, tea...) to get us going in the morning. I am honestly impressed and will defenetely consider returning.

After reading the 5 star reviews from Trip Advisor on this Inn I decided to give it a try. A little hesitant at looking at the picture on the website, it looked like a 3 family home in a seaside community. When I arrived and went inside....Wow...it was beautiful.. Beautiful carpeting, very clean rooms and a very hospitable owner, Tony.... More

We loved the two days we spent there.The Manager was so accommodating. They might consider new beds as the one we stayed in could have been more comfortable. The free continental breakfast was so nice and the coffee was VERY tasty! Don't go down the street to the chain hotel. This is home away from home

This inn is gorgeous, competitive pricing, and a hidden gem. It is literally right over the border from Newport, so it's beach walkable. Very very clean, breakfast options included, and free parking. Very accommodating, great for families or couples. Its relatively small, stay on the second or third floor if you sleep in (kitchen on the first floor). Bathrooms are... More

Found that this was just a few miles from Newport, but what a find! Rick is the hospitable host, and it is a quiet, clean room , and the location is so key to allow you to go anywhere you want. Besides Newport, we travelled to Naragansett and Pt. Judith. However, right there is a beach ( no waves) and... More

Very clean rooms and lobby, complimentary breakfast has many options. Unlike many hotels but smells fresh unlike many close to the ocean. The hotel is in a great location with the beach a short walk from the hotel. The owner is on site to make sure you have a great experience, It's a very close drive to Newport although we... More
