Convenient location, clean and Comfortable suite, and a very friendly staff. My wife and I had fun and I'm planning another trip in the next month or so. The room and king bed were comfortable. The location is very close to downtown and a the action. The staff was friendly and breakfast was great.

The location was perfect, a two minute walk to many restaurants, shopping and the harbor. The room was perfectly appointed, clean and comfortable, had a fireplace and whirlpool. It was also very quiet. Homemade chocolate chip cookies upon arrival was nice for someone with a sweet tooth. In the morning Monique's french toast with strawberries, blueberries and bacon was our...

Black Duck is a nice place to stay, but management needs a lesson in management. Bought a groupon for Newport Blues. Inquired about adding a third person and was told I could for an extra fee, however an upgrade was not available. Left the third person home. Arrived at Newport Blues, a sign told me to check in at the... More

We are so sorry that you were disappointed in your stay at our inn. The guests who book at The Blue Jewel, which has only three rooms, are usually told about the breakfast down the block when booking. I hope we remembered to inform you of this when you made your reservation. We hope you choose to give us another... More

Overall good room, excellent breakfast and very friendly staff. We were allowed an early check-in, given local tourist info. Very close to downtown, easily walk-able. One of our two rooms was a bit noisy, from the stairs and an adjacent room.

After receiving a groupon for Christmas we scheduled a weekend getaway in Newport Rhode Island. We booked a room (New Orleans Suite) in the Newport Blues Inn. The day of our arrival we received a phone call prior to leaving our home from Susan at the Inn. She advised us that it was St. Patrick's Day weekend and gave us... More

I won a one night stay for two from my company, so my husband and I stayed here last night. To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything that great because it was free. Boy, was I wrong! I'm not much of a traveler, but when I do travel, I usually pick the cheapest hotels with only the basics. The Black... More

We stayed in the Meritage Suite at the Black Duck Inn, in which the accommodations were nice and comfy. Bed was clean, fresh with ample pillows. Plenty of hot water for showers.

This was our second stay with them, although the first time was at their other property, the Newport blues. Both times they were very friendly and accommodating. The decor is solidly 90s, which we always enjoy. The breakfast is simple but good. Centrally located, easy to find. With the groupon, an excellent value.
