First of all, the location is terrific. Just a block away from Thames Blvd, so no need to use the car for in town entertainment. This B&B is a historic house and one of a group called The Inns of Newport. Check in for the Clarkeston is across the street at the Cleveland House. Checking in takes place in the... More

Our stay at the Clarkeston was pretty Good. When we first got there we were sent to a room that was actually occupied so they might have felt embarrassed and offered us a free upgrade, what was not bad at all. The b&b is perfectly located, within a walking distance for everything (except the beaches) and they also offer you... More

Been there from july 9 to 12. We stayed at the Clarkeston on Clarke street. Perfect place to stay. Situated near the Eisenhower Park, everything is a walking distance from the Inn (shops, restaurants, activities). Rick Farrick and his staff are wonderful. Discreet, attentional, and friendly. The room we stayed in was amazing. Spotless from ceiling to floor. Air conditioned,... More

My husband and I just had an amazing time at the Clarkeston on June 25, 2012. The staff were very friendly and accommodating- we got a free room upgrade to the Harry Belmont room. The room has the Newport charm we love, dark green walls, king size sleigh bed, antique mirror, etc but modern conveniences like a window A/C (which... More

We got a very warm welcome and got upgraded to a suite since we were traveling with our two young children. Our room was great and cosy. Got great mexucan restaurant tip two blocks away. The street is beautiful and quiet. Tge breakfast was delicious. We ll recommend this address to anyone going to Newport.

Where to begin?...Check-in was fairly easy. Our credit card had already been charged for the first day weeks earlier when we booked it which we weren't happy about. Our room, the Harry Belmont, was definitely not as nice as the website portrayed it. The walls were all marked up, it was pretty small, the bed was uncomfortable and old we... More

The room was very nicely decorated, clean and spacious. We didn't know what to expect for the b'fast, and it ended up exceeding our expectations. Very helpful staff and off street parking. We would definitely go back.

I am pretty easy to please when it comes to bed and breakfasts. But the Clarkeston was a disappointment, other than the location. When I arrived, proprietors told me I had been upgraded, but it ended up that mean I was in the room closest to the front door (literally two feet from it, because there is no foyer) and... More

The Clarkeston was great for a weekend trip! The staff was very helpful and the location was perfect. Our room was spacious for the price and the staff was sure to offer us an upgrade that had recently become available. Reviews we read here left us a little uncertain what to expect at breakfast, but it was great - good... More
