Given the price of accomodation in Newport and Middletown, this has to be the best value around. We paid around $130 when everyrthing else was way more, unless you were prepared to stay miles away. It's within walking distance to a number of restaurants and the beach, but 10 minutes drive from downtown Newport and 5 minutes from the Cliff Walk and all the Mansions.

The view is great, we arrived early and were given our room immediately, which though a bit small, was clean and comfortable. The owners were great- giving really good advice on restaurants and where to go and when. It's way nicer then the cookie cutter impersonal options offerd by the chain motels. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Owners live on the property of this small motel on a small lake/reservoir just 10 minutes away from Thames St in Newport. It's just far enough away to provide a little peace and quiet. You can walk to the beach and have to go to the Atlantic Grille for breakfast a block away. Ask for the stay four pay for 3 special. Rates go up on Fridays and Saturdays, but if the 4th night falls on eother day, it's free.

This is one of the best values in the area. Although it is in Middletown, it is just across the line from Newport. It is less than 1 mile from the Cliff Walk. Also, it is just down the street from the Atlantic Grille, which is the best breakfast place in the area. Everyone was incredibly friendly. They even gave me a free room upgrade. Every room has a view of the ocean. The rooms were spacious, clean, and quiet. They also have refrigerators in the rooms, which is nice if you are staying a few days or have kids. In all, a fantastic experience.

My wife and I stayed here as part of our New England trip. We can only endorse all the excellent reviews. Nice location overlooking a small lake and only 5 minutes drive from downtown Newport. The owner could not have been more helpful and gave us a 10% discount voucher for the Atlantic Restaurant, only 5 mins walk and excellent.
Do try and get a Deck room which are on the first floor for a really light and airy room
