Stayed here for 2 nights with my FI when we had to come up to RI to get our marriage license. Wanted to try one of the "newport area" hotels in the off-season. We stayed in the older section, had a king sized bed with an ocean view.
Thoughts on hotel: The room was small, but had a fridge, which was a nice touch. The bed linens were very nice, comforter was good, and my FI thought the bed was super comfortable. Toilet was omg scary loud when it flushes...no seriously, you'll think its about to launch into space! The ocean front rooms have to deal with constant traffic noise from the Very Busy main road right in front of the hotel. And in summer it is busy at all times, so just a word of warning. The main part of the hotel is very small....and the front entry way doors which are automatic doors, make the biggest racket I have ever when they open and close. Management, if you read this, replace/fix those doors! The sound is atrocious and made me wonder what else was breaking down and not being fixed in the hotel... For the couple who said there was no elevator...there is, but it is not very well marked. The stairs are steep and narrow and neverending...do not recommend taking them unless you are deliberately seeking a workout.
Beach across the way is very nice, watch out for red tide in the summer. Hotel is close to a nice assortment of restaurants, covers all price points. In the summer, try the world famous lobster rolls at the beach food shack...best tasting with a great price!!
Overall, this hotel was just ok. It suited our purposes and we got the off-season rate. I enjoyed being so close to the beach. But if I had paid the full-price summer rate I would have been seriously pissed off.... The rooms were very very tiny and the hotel itself doesn't have lots of charm or amenities. The hotel needs some updating on exterior features,and better sound-proofed windows for rooms near the heavily traveled roads...which are probably all of the rooms. I never did find the pool, hot tub, rooftop anything, or any of the other amenities and features of this hotel...staff never mentioned it or pointed out how to get to any of the facilities and I don't remember seeing any signs. Overall just ok. I enjoyed my stay but was expecting better.
