We were unlucky with the noise perhaps as there was one group of noisy people outside in a parking area that were yahooing into the small hours. But then again, the internal plumbing of other rooms was noisy as was the floor or bed from other rooms. The aircon was so noisy you couldn't leave it on. Maybe betting a... More

Great atmosphere very social place. Good location to access downtown. My favorite things, fluffy white towels, the two room suite and a nice breakfast. Only negative, a light needed fixing and the bed could be a little softer, but hey what do you expect when your in jail!

We enjoyed everything about our stay at the Jailhouse Inn. We were originally booked in to Room 2 (just off the main foyer) but after encountering a small problem we were whisked to the 3rd floor and a more spacious room. I only mention the "problem" because it was so swiftly handled by the attentive evening staff. When we checked... More

Compared to hotel prices while were in NY, Newport seemed cheap! Staff were friendly and helpful at the Jailhouse Inn. Stayed on the first floor and if returning would request a room on the upper floor. Our room faced a back alley and there was what seemed like constant vehicle and people traffic and noise day and night. Also the... More

The Jailhouse Inn has charm and class. Staying at this Inn is like going back in time but with modern amenities. The staff is more than willing to speak with you about the history of the Inn and surrounding areas while accommodating you in top notch fashion. The food was fresh and the rooms were spotless. We will be visiting... More

They even let us see a secret room downstairs which my young girls loved.. The room was big and clean... The breakfast was perfect to get you out the door... More

The staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms are nice and well appointed given the pricing. The inn offers FREE parking and downtown is within walking distance. The FREE breakfast is CONTINENTAL. 24/7 good quality coffee. Fresh baked cookies every afternoon ;-) If you don't know what continental means, well.... it's a simple cold breakfast. Here at Jailhouse,... More

My wife and I were traveling with our adult Son. We reserved room #22. This room was spotless. The bathroom remarkably clean. Linens were nice. Blackout track blinds - great for sleeping in. Most importantly, we had a semi private area from my son in a separate sleeping quarter. The breakfast was great. Coffee and Tea 24 hrs - and... More

We recently stayed at the Jailhouse Inn in mid August.We were extremely pleased with the property. We parked and never moved our car. Parking is free and on the property which is not always the case at some of the other properties. Some have no parking on site. It is convenient to the restaurants and the wharf. The staff is...

We stayed for one night late August and the location was unbeatable being in walking distance to all the bars, restaurants and shops. Parking was also included which is a huge plus. The room was a great size and it has a larger bathroom which I prefer. There's continental breakfast included and the staff was all super friendly! I'd definitely... More
