Ray canceled our reservation for all 7 rooms that had been paid in full the day before we were supposed to arrive in Newport. Luckily, he did return our money, but it was a major headache to find accommodations for a large group in less than 24 hours. We made the mistake of ignoring all the other negative reviews after...

The owner/manager (Ray) is a pathological liar and the place is a dump. We rented a part of the hotel for our wedding. We showed up the day before to drop off gift bags and the lobby/common areas of the hotel looked like no one had cleaned them in years. Mail all over the floors, dirt everywhere. Several of our...

DO NOT BOOK AT PEARLS! My husband and I were invited to a wedding near Newport, RI. I knew of Pearls and thought it would be a lovely place to stay for the weekend. We reserved the nights of April 1st and 2nd. As requested from Mr. Meyerson, I paid by check in advance. He said that this was the...

Well in advance of our intended stay my wife made a reservation at Pearls of Newport and confirmed it with a $25 deposit. Less than 2 days before the date we got a call from Ray Meyerson saying there was a computer mistake and the hotel was overbooked. We said he was obliged to provide a room at a hotel...

I reserved a room this past summer for 1 night in November (paid the full price of the room) but unfortunately needed to cancel soon after I made the reservation. I emailed and called numerous times attempting to cancel but was never able to speak with anyone or had any of my messages returned. The day before my intended reservation...

I am not one to write negative reviews and I travel all the time so I consider myself very reasonable, but Pearls of Newport absolutely deserves one and I urge you to avoid this place at all costs because dealing with the owner Ray is a nightmare. My friend rented out this whole inn for her wedding and needless to...

I rented out the entire property for my wedding at the end of September 2015. As other people have said in their reviews Ray is great when he is trying to sell you on the property and all he can do, once he has your money it's a different story. I paid $6300 as a 50% deposit for all the...

My boyfriend and I booked at Pearls the weekend of the Newport Folk Festival. We paid A LOT of money for our 3 night stay as we wanted to be close to the downtown area and the water taxi that brings you to the festival. We assumed that the high price would mean high quality! We were so wrong. First...

My husband and I stayed here for our one year wedding anniversary. We absolutely love Newport, as we got engaged at the Breakers mansion and Pearls of Newport was the perfect little place to spend our weekend together. The room we originally wanted was booked, so Ray suggested Suite 7 which was absolutely lovely. Upon check-in they sent up champagne...

We booked the entire place for ourselves and some of our guests for our wedding in June 2015, we gave Ray (the owner) $10,000 a year before since he said he would give us a small discount for paying in full and this would guarantee the entire hotel to us for our wedding weekend. After we gave him the $10,000...
