“We did not love it & we definitely wouldn't recommend it!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

Property not as advertised. There was a lovely view on one side. Of course that's how they advertise this property. We were put on the opposite side (despite booking this property months ago) where our view was of traffic on a street. We immediately requested a change but was told that was not possible. The place appeared to be almost empty the whole 3 days we were there. Our toilet barely flushed & when it did flush the whole thing shaked & rattled like it was going to fall over! The air conditioning would shut off in the middle of the night. You'd have to turn it off 7 turn it on again to get it to work again. It was advertised that they had a hot tub...they didn't. When we inquired about it we were told that they haven't had one for years & they keep trying to get it taken off the website but it just hasn't been yet. They advertise an award winning restaurant, but the only time it's open is for Sunday brunch. WiFi didn't work in our room. When we inquired about that they just said, "yeah, it doesn't always make it to some of the rooms"! There was no daily maid service, which would have been OK if we were told about it. When we inquired about that they said, "they were busy today I guess they just didn't have time to do your room"!

Great location, facility and staff in a small, friendly and beautiful town that is near so much. A few good restaurants that are walking distance. Walking distance to ferry for great half hour ride to all the activities in Newport. View from room was awesome. Room was smallish but clean, comfortable and more than adequate. Restaurant looked great but was closed during our brief Sunday to Tuesday stay (Sunday brunch only, closed Monday). Will definitely return.

Great dinner for a party of four. However, Liquor price on Glenlivet Scotch was over the top. I was charged $16.50 per drink for scotch on the rocks. Four drinks totaled $66,00. These are 1 oz. drinks over ice. This is price gouging at it's worse. Sorry, we won't be back !!

I stayed at the Bay Voyage in late April, 2011. I had a reservation for 2 nights, but left after one. The hotel rooms are depressing, dated and dark. For a location by the coast line, the inside feels like you are staying in a chain hotel in a strip mall (or worse). The room I had was a "suite" which meant a tiny room separated off from a small living room. The decor was dark and dated....picture an old fashioned dark bedspread, rather than new down covers...something every hotel, including Crowne Plaza's, Hyatts, Raddisson's etc., all have now. The hallways smelled dank and musty. There was no food served the day I was there. It was all very depressing, and nothing like what I expected from a hotel in this location or from what it looks like on the outside. Extremely disappointing.

My parents let us use their time share at this property. It is nice but it is not what the say it is. We got a shock finding out how tiny this unit was. We have stayed at time shares all over the country. The room we were in was half the size of what we expected. We also expected a kitchen. Thankfully we only stayed two nights. We did not expect to go out to eat. Since we are from Providence we did find a nice hole in the wall to get pizza, fish and Chips. It is the Jamestown House of Pizza. We walked down to the center of the village along the bay which was fun the kids had a great time throwing stones into the water and we walked and watched them. When we walked back we almost ran back since the sun went down and it started getting chilly. Ever since we stayed their now we go to Jamestown in the spring and fall to get fish and chips and walk along the beach and the docks.

We chose this property on the advice of friend even though we had reservations after reading previous review on this site.

First, let me say the staff was excellent, very friendly and extremely helpful. Every request was cheerfully executed promptly. The location of our room was excellent. We had a balcony with very comfortable furniture (more on that later) and an excellent view of the bay and Newport.

We stayed for six nights which we later discovered was too long. Jamestown has a small commercial district and beautiful countryside. All of which can be covered in two days. In hidnsight one night would have been sufficient. This is in part because of the excessive toll charged on the Jamestown Bridge. $4.00 each way for a total of $8.00 a day is a bit much.

The Inn is old and quaint and it is being remodeled. The suite, one bedroom, is quite small. Smaller than what you would find at a normal suite hotel. The bedroom was so tiny it could only accomodate a small dresser (four drawers) and that was not sufficient for two people staying six nights. There was no other facility for clothes other than the closet and that was located in the living area of the suite. There was a "kitchen" against one wall of the suite that included a bar sink, microwave and standard hotel fridge. This was not adequate for any preparation of food for in-room dining other than a cold breakfast or perhaps a snack in the evening. The freezer was only large enough for ice trays and these were not provided. dishes, glasses, cups, utensils and some pans were provided. I don't know what you would use the pans for as there was no stove top or oven and I'm inclined not to place anything metal in a microwave. There was also a coffee pot, toaster and blender in one of the cabinets. However, the counter top was very crowded if you had the coffe pot and toaster out at the same time.

The bed, it was either a large double or small queen, was very comfortable. However, it was very difficult to get to if you were sleeping next to the window because there was only a small space between the dresser and foot of the bed. You had to turn sideways to get between the two. The bed was the only comfortable furniture in the suite except for the patio furniture. The sofa, a sleeper sofa, was very uncomfortable and had a sway in the middle so that if you sat at either end you eventually found yourself in the middle. The chairs were also uncomfortable with very little cushion. We spent quite a bit of time on the patio using the patio furniture. For this we were fortunate that their was only one day of inclement weather. We noticed the occupants of several other rooms below us doing the same thing.

The bathroom was also quite small but adequate. The shower was excellent.

One last comment about the room was the lighting. It was excellent for a romantic interlude but very bad for reading. Each morning a USA Today was delivered to our room. However the light was so poor in the suite it could not be read. Once again, we retreated to our patio to read the morning paper.

We did not use the restaurant facilities. The prices seemed quite high considering all the places availabe to eat in town, with reasonable prices, which you could walk to in less than 15 minutes.

This is a very nice property for a 1 or 2 night stay WITHOUT children. I cannot imagine anymore than two people in one of these suites and certainly not children.

It was a good value for the price we paid but it was the off season. It is not a good value for in-season rates. I would recommend this property to a friend under certain circumstances.

Would we stay here again? Possibly, depending on time of year but not for more than 2 nights.


Although we seldom turned on the TV we did note that it was not a flat screen that is normally found in all hotelsthese days.

Booked blindly through discount site so we were concerned after reading negative reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. Pros: Our suite was clean, well appointed and perfect for adults with kids, Beautiful setting directly on the waterfront. We suffered no unpleasant noise or smell as others had reported and enjoyed the morning coffee and rolls, computer access and Wii playstation. Cons: If you are there to visit Newport, although it's easy access, be aware of the $8 round trip toll to cross the bridge.
