This a difficult review to write because there are some strong positives and some things that are not terrible, but not great. First the pros-the staff is very, very nice and very helpful. The location of the inn can't be beat. You are literally five minutes to downtown, the shops, the wharves, and the Touro Synagogue. You're only a ten... More

Rick and his staff were more than accommodating! They couldn't have been more helpful. We didn't like our first room because it didn't have a TV. They allowed us to check out several other rooms to decide which we liked best. The rooms are named after famous people of Newport. The rooms are charming, clean and historic. The inn is... More

This is an actual historic building, one of a group on Clarke St. If you want a new, large chain hotel then you should go somewhere else. But if you want personal, friendly attention in a place with history - this is it. It's updated enough that things work in the bathroom, but the wide-plank floors creak like they should... More

The breakfast was minimal but the rooms were spacious enough and very well kept. The location was excellent, right in the middle of downtown and easily accessible to the beach. Walking distance to great shops an restaurants. The beach is walkable but there is also a bus that brings you right near the cliff walk for only $2. Would definitely... More

Visited this Inn a few weeks ago, location is great, very central and quiet, with free parking. Our room was charming but very small, with no space to hang or store our jackets or any item of clothing. Breakfast was a bit cramped, served in a tiny room, with subpar coffee and no selection of cold cereals or fresh fruits.... More

This is our third time staying at one of "The Inns of Newport". We have stayed previously at The Cleveland House, but upon arriving today were told by the proprietor that the room we requested would be noisy due to some renovation. He offered us an upgraded room across the street at The Clarkeson. The home is historic and tastefully... More
