Clean and tastefully appointed rooms with a deck right outside your door with fabulous views of Newport Harbor. Located in the heart of the village, you are within walking distance to everything including some great dog friendly outdoor eateries.

it was winter time and me and a good friend decided to go to Newport overnight and made a reservation at Bannister's wharf. We stayed at the end of the pier and on the second floor. We arrived in the afternoon and noticed that they were varnishing the floors in the store underneath our room. dropped our things off and... More

This is a very convenient location in downtown with parking and in close proximity to a number of restaurants and pubs. The rooms are large with coffee makers and small refrigerators. The TV (at least in Room #5) is small and quite a distance from the bed so long distance viewing is problematic. Staff was friendly and was able to... More

The room was nice and clean but a bit small. Housekeeping came every day to tidy up and replenish our stay with clean, fresh towels and chocolates. Nice location too as it is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping areas. It's a bit pricey though.

Two couples stayed here for 3 nights over the 7/4 weekend. We had room 5 & Suite 1 overlooking the stores with a "private deck" between us. Night 1: ants in our room, even in our bed. They couldn't help us until morning because they had yacht guests and their parties to attend to so we handled the ants ourselves.... More

Stayed in Newport for two nights. The location of these guest rooms is great, but extremely outdated. A nice new paint job would certainly help. The size and cleanliness was good, but it's not warm or inviting. The ACs are very loud, TV old and not very clear. If you are looking for a great location near the water and... More

We stayed in a double room. It was very clean with decent space, nice linens, good size bathroom, mini frig, TV etc. The best part is having seating right outside your room that looks over Newport Harbor. And the location can not be beat. And in the end the price is very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area.... More

I booked our stay through Groupon for two nights over Christmas. I didn't see the pictures from a guest on your site until afterward and was worried I'd made a mistake. We arrived Christmas eve and the weather was rainy. We checked in at the Clarke Cooke House (not the Harbor Master) after parking at the end of the wharf.... More

We absolutely love this place. It's so quaint, right on the water. Not fancy , but the bathroom has recently been redone and the floors have been replaced . Do you really stay in a hotel because of the paint and furniture? Then stay somewhere else. This place is a perfect get away, especially on New Years Eve. Walk to... More

We used a Groupon this past July to stay here. We had two rooms reserved. One was at the end of the dock and had a deck we could sit on but it was older than the pictures and had a VERY loud air conditioner. The other room was half way down the wharf in the middle of the shopping.... More
