We had a nice stay. Getting on wifi was a problem as we were on the lower floor, but the staff was very helpful in trying to make it work. There was no air-conditioning, which initially had us worried, but wasn't a problem as the breeze from the ocean kept the room cool. Breakfast was small. But the location was great. I was able to walk to the Aquarium from here (about a mile), and the beach was a couple of blocks away. The historic bay was also within walking distance, though we did not go there.

After reading the reviews of this hotel i was a bit worried about taking my family to stay here. But, it met our budget and allowed us to have our dog. Upon check in we were greeted wit ha very friendly clerk and check in was smooth and painless. The room was far better than what I had expected from reading past reviews. It was very clean and orderly. The staff never bothered us and it was a great two night experience. I will agree that the continental breakfast left something to be desired. As for all the bad reviews my guess is that some people are just never happy. If you are looking for a affordable place to stay that allows pets this should be on your list of places in Newport. It's not on the beach but for the price it's close enough and I had no problem walking with my 2 and 4 year old girls to the bay front and down to Nye beach. Go get a bowl of chowder at The Chowder Bowl restaurant and check out the huge slide in the park that is just northwest of the hotel.

The room was a bit small for 4 people, and we had to haul our luggage upstairs. The desk clerk was polite but not overly friendly. She gave us an "ocean view" room. Hmmm....I guess we could see a little of the ocean between tall buildings to the west, but I wouldn't exactly call it a view. The "breakfast" was a bit less than minimal! Don't expect to actually eat there.

Room Tip: Don't bother with an ocean view room - there aren't any!

The hotel said ocean front and it's at least a city block or two away from the beach. There are houses and other hotels in between. The room was OK. There was a funny smell to it and the refrigerator had dried juice down the side of it.
The biggest disappointment was probably the continental breakfast..it was more like a cheap snack bar. The pastries were all packaged from the dollar tree and they had thrown in some slices of bread and english muffins in sandwich bags.
I wont be staying here again!

Where can I start. At least it has an "ocean view" from up on a hill with 5 rows of houses and a Shilo Inn between it and the ocean. That's all the good. I mean, I wasn't expecting the Ritz here, but something not nearly as bad as this! First off, It is across the street from a porn shop! Next, the condescending teen behind the counter wouldn't let me have the 2 bed room I paid for, so she put me in a 1 bed room for the same rate as the larger room! The first room smelled like urine and vomit together and had a broken security lock, and the curtain was missing the dark backing, so I asked for different room and a discount since she put me in a single. The most she would give me was $10 off. The 2nd room smelled okay, but all the furniture was severely beaten up, the toilet lit was missing a corner, and the microwave door was cracked. And the extra lock was broken too! The bathroom was filthy, the fridge was loud, and the WiFi signal from the Shilo 2 blocks away was stronger than our's! I was too tired to look for another room, so I decided to make the best of it. I was awoken by the sound of loud crashing and the feeling of the whole hotel shaking. Not an earthquake, but it was strong gusts of wind from the ocean! The eaves also got pushed up and down! I thought the building was going to collapse, which it might do if this keeps up!! I laid back down, and in the morning when took a shower, I got athletes foot! Also, if my itching is any clue, there were bed bugs!! All in all, it was my worst stay ever, and I would rate it 0 stars if I could!! Stay someplace else!!

Room Tip: Stay at a nicer hotel!!

I had reserved an ocean view room with two queens. Our check-in took more than 20 minutes---the two desk attendants were trying to figure out the reservation of one other guest who had apparently booked online. They were quite pleasant, but extremely inefficient.
The first room they ( finally) assigned us had a broken heater. The room we eventually got had two double beds, not queens, and a lovely view of the parking lot. By this time we were so weary and didn't want to have to wait - again - that we just settled.
The room was clean enough, but definitely could use updating. One small wall heater was barely adequate. Toilet seat didn't fit the toilet. Noise from the room upstairs was terrible. Perhaps a top floor ocean view room - as we were supposed to have - would have been better.

Room Tip: Top floor to minimize noise.
