A wonderful place to go when visiting Newport. My best friend and I had an amazing time. The staff was courteous and helpful, their recommendations for eateries and things to do were spot on. I would definitely go again. What a friendly bunch of people.

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2015 via mobile

I absolutely loved this place. The location, the view from the dining area, that's what Newport is about! We had an amazing room with this awesome tub and fireplace. The bed was exquisite! Bathroom spacious and pristine. It even had a little in-room bistro set and mini fridge! But the best part was breakfast...holy cow it was amazing!!! I highly... More

First thing you'll notice about the Artful Lodger is LOCATION, LOCATION! You are literally in the backyard to the Elm's. Amazing location to visit Bellevue Avenue to tour the mansions. The Inn is located in a residential area, houses are very close to each other in proximity. The Inn has its own parking which is a bonus. They have a... More

Upon arrival we had to wait for almost half an hour for the inn keeper to actually let us in, which bearing in mind check in was after two p.m. and we were there around four after a 200 mile drive and so well within the set time, not impressed. Whilst waiting on the front porch we could not fail... More

The bed was comfy, the breakfasts were delicious, the staff friendly and accommodating. It was walking distance to both town and Mansions. It met all my criteria for a great BNB. I couldn't have been happier.

Our room on the 2nd floor had a kingsize bed with a private porch and bathroom. The sink is in the bedroom against the window and floor air conditioner, and can only be used by squeezing into the chair next to the blowing AC. They don't provide any cups to brush your teeth, so you can go back downstairs and... More

Pros: Great location to the Elms. We arrived at night and being new to the area, did not realize how close the Elms Mansion is to the inn (directly across the street). We had reserved Servants Tour tickets at the Elms and asked the person who greeted us (she never said her name and we do not know if she... More

This place is centrally located and definitely NOT for someone that is looking for a quiet place to rest at night. It is off the main bar scene in Newport( Lower Thames is a one way and this street goes the other way so everyone drives down Thames then ZOOMS down this street all night long). The rooms are have...

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Artful Lodger this past weekend and had a great time. Our room had a large jacuzzi tub which was very nice, along with a fireplace. The room was very clean and comfortable. We even forgot to bring wine glasses and were very happy to see that there were some in the... More
