Great location, steps to Cliff walk. Gorgeous room (the Hydrangea), which is very private with a partial water view and private patio. I repeat, this room is gorgeous. Two notes to staff: a bed stepping stool would be useful. This bed is beyond comfy, but high and a bit hard to climb into. And, the lock in the door is... More

I had arranged for a late arrival due to reason for my latest visit. Nancy penned a welcome letter expressing her and Bill's condolences, gave all the necessary details I would need to get settled. The next morning at breakfast, which was incredibly delicious and cooked by Bill, the staff was aware of reason for my visit and Bill stopped... More

This inn is lovely, with high-quality amenities and convenience to "the cottages" and downtown Newport while still being quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is exceptional. Our room was clean, well designed, and decorated with appropriate period detail but without excessive gewgaws. Comfortable mattress, fine linens.

We had our dog and were in the Hydrangea room and it was lovely. We were greeted by Cindy who couldn't have been sweeter. She walked us to our suite and made sure to explain how everything worked. Also gave suggestions for restaurants and other ideas. The two breakfasts we had were very tasty and the granola was probably the... More

We visited the Cliffside Inn in the fall, and this turned out to be the most perfect time to visit. We stayed in the very top floor attic room, and while it was kind of small, it was very dreamy. There is a working fireplace, lots of skylights, and a beautiful bathroom with a giant tub. The main floor of... More

Just a great place. Have stayed in many B&Bs, and this is one of the top two or three if not the best. Inn was beautifully renovated recently. Furnishings lovely. Newport location excellent -- away from noisy downtown and only one block from access to Cliffwalk.

This was my second visit to the Cliffside Inn. The first visit was shortly after the inn opened. The Innkeepers, Debbie and Cindy have maintained their great enthusiasm and remarkable service. I thought the first visit was perfect, but somehow the experience is even better now! The shaded porch with an ocean view was a charming spot for both breakfast... More
