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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We were a bit early for check in, but found no one at home. The general appearance is of a pleasant hotel, although it could do with a good clean. Cobwebs in the room and dirty marks on the bedspread. Breakfast was not satisfactory: day 1 we were told to help ourselves no staff were present. we found two pots... More

The staff was friendly, but either incompetent or did not care. I think a combination of the two. The cleanliness of all areas was marginal, at best. We arrived mid afternoon and the A/C unit was not turned on in our room - old style window unit. The hall and bath were not air conditioned. Not a great way to... More

Stayed in the hotel on the back end of our holiday through New England for two nights. The hotel is in a great location close to the waterfront and restaurants but accommodation is mediocre for the price. TV didn't work on first night, free WI-FI didn't work in room at all and breakfast was practically non existent on the second... More

If I could give this place 0 stars I would. Not everyone here is completely incompetent. Tim seems like a good guy but Ray is completely ignorant on how to run a business. The entire deposit was paid upfront 16 months ago for all three houses. Every room. He rented out the BRIDAL SUITE to someone else and had no... More

Last summer, 2014, we happened to stop by Pearl's while searching for a place for all the attendants and our family to stay for our daughter’s beautiful Newport wedding. Ray, the owner, did a great job on selling us on the fact that his three buildings (15 rooms) and large garden would be perfect for us all and would be... More
