Stayed at Rhea's Inn by the Sea for an extended weekend vacation. The place was well kept up, the rooms were large and the price was comparable for the area. The owner was there day & night and was very responsive to all requests. The location is only 5 minutes from Newport and the beach is just across the street.... More

We stayed for 4 nights. The inn is only a few steps to the beach. Great foods option (muffins, bagels, fruits, oatmeal...) available for grab from the lobby any time of the day. The cafe next door also makes good coffee and sandwiches, that we brought along when touring the town. The room is very clean and comfortable. We will... More

Tony was great. Room was big and clean. Great little deck to check out ocean across street. Morning breakfast offers were more than adequate to start your day, coffee, bagels, yogurt, fruit, pastries etc..

We had an absolutely immaculate queen suite on the third floor right across from Easton Beach with a balcony. I cant stress clean, clean, clean enough! New paint, new carpet, bathroom/bathtub sparkling. Lovely. Lots of breakfast goodies down in the office/common area plus water, ice, etc. The only issue you may have is if you can't do stairs. There is... More

I highly recommend Rhea's as a place to stay if visiting the Newport area. The rooms are clean and spacious and the Inn itself in a prime location with beach just a walk across the street. Tony is a great host and keeps the lobby stocked with a large variety of snacks. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here for the location and its rating on TripAdvisor. We were going to a wedding just a stone's throw away at the Rotunda on Easton Beach. The Inn is conveniently close to Newport and its attractions, since it is on the Middleton and Newport line. We didn't want to stay in a big hotel so we opted for... More

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
