We really just needed a dog-friendly hotel in Newport so we could have a few cocktails without driving an hour home, so I was happy to find a $99 rate during the summer. I did not have high expectations, and I think the hotel was just fine. The room was bare bones, no amenities such as shampoo or toohpaste, but... More

Used, crusty bed linens and a moldy shower -- no thanks. And it wasn't an anomaly; after I rejected the first filth-fest, I was given a new room which was no different. Ew. The staff was lovely, I almost felt bad for them. This place USED TO BE a decent, it's a shame. Try the Howard Johnson.

Finding reasonable accommodation in Newport, Rhode Island during the summer is not easy. It's a very busy place that attracts a lot of tourists especially for sailing events. Even though we started looking in March for a place to stay overnight, it was hard to select a decent hotel without having to pay a fortune. We took a chance on... More

It was absolutely disgusting! We were supposed to share the room with another couple yet the couple left at 12 am as the room was horrific. Feces on the toilet, hair in the shower, hair on the bathroom floor and what I will call 'smears' all over the main floor. The sheets were stained. I myself decided to put a... More

Basic sleeping room only. Rooms were clean, but musty smell in hallways and rooms. We went next door to Walmart and bought Febreeze to freshen up the room. No pool or lounge area. Not much else. We were out most of the day and evening, so it was fine for just sleeping. I wouldn't recommend for large group looking to... More

Stopped n Newport to see Cliff Walk. An add on to a 2 week trip threw New England. The smell of cigarettes is so strong. You offered bed , that it. No WiFi , frig. or microwave unless you pay extra. Spend the extra towards safer place. Dog's barking , scary people outside.

Stayed a weekend in June, the room was clean and the beds were clean and comfortable. Not all the rooms have a refrigerator and there is a small fee for wifi ($2.99 for 24 hours) but we knew it ahead of time so we were not surprised. Love that there are Wood floors rather than rugs. The A/C worked great... More

To plan a last-minute trip in Newport is tough, especially in Spring/Summer. A group of friends and I ended up making a reservation for just one night and I have to say - beware! Although it's a lot less expensive than staying at luxury hotels in downtown Newport, I would suggest you just splurge for something nicer. We tried to... More

This place is OK, I guess if you are broke and do not have kids or any other options. There is a heavy marijuana smell throughout the building. The rugs are dirty and homeless people stay here. The rooms have been redone so I imagine they have improved. I did not stay here.

Check-in time is listed at 3 PM, yet when I arrived at 4:30 after driving six hours from southern New Jersey, I was told the room was "not ready yet." When I pointed out that it was now 4:30, a woman, who was not the person at the desk I was dealing with, said that "they had very few rooms... More
