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 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.

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
This is not fine dining but it is service with a smile and tasty fresh food. You can't beat the location whether you are on a boat or walking in the inner harbor. We had breakfast there a couple of times and thick, delicious sandwiches...More
