This is a hidden (and humble) gem right on the harbor. The building is stunning. Expect to be able to unwind and relax with no television. Internet worked well. Shared bathrooms are generous and clean. Read the parking signs thoroughly as we got hit with...More

Small room with Twin Bed idea for single guests or someone just needing a place to crash. No A/C so we had to leave the window open to keep the room cool. Fine if you don't mind some noise. As this was a holiday weekend,...More

This truly is a hidden gem of a bargain, as others have said. The location is ideal, the staff is friendly, the rooms clean, the beds comfortable. They offer maritime types a discount, but all are welcome to fill the rooms and provide income for...More

About
Description
Located on America’s Cup Avenue at Bowen’s Wharf, the Crow’s Nest is central to everything in downtown Newport and offers an affordable alternative to local B&Bs. The inn occupies the third floor of the Seamen’s More Church Institute, a National Register of Historic Places building. Although all guests are welcome, the non-profit Seamen’s mission is to provide a safe haven for men and women who make their living from the sea. The inn’s nine rooms and two shared baths are quaintly-decorated, clean and comfortable with in-season air conditioning, free WiFi and spectacular views of Newport Harbor, Trinity Church and the new Maya Lin designed Meeting Room. The building has an elevator and is completely ADA-accessible. Discounts available for mariners and military. All funds raised from the Crow's Nest goes back to Seamen's and the community. The Aloha Café on the ground floor is open daily from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm. Less
