I expected a motel and it was more of a lower end hotel. They had free copies of Providence Journal at the desk and I really enjoyed the paper. The maid staff did towel origami which was a nice touch. I also liked that they had fresh fruit in the breakfast lounge, however, I like to have yogurt in the mornings and it wasn't provided. Also, the coffee dispenser one morning didn't work because there was no one around to talk to about it. It's a small thing, but I need my caffeine fix in the AM! :)

Needed to stay near Newport overnight to visit the Tennis Hall of Fame, so no need for luxury, waterview, New Englandy feeling--just a well priced comfortable room, and this place fit the bill and provided so much more than expected. First of all well set back from Broadway, the busy main road, so noise was minimal--and we asked for a room that was quiet, so they put us around a corner of the building further sheltered from road.

Clean, good size room that was very well laid out, comfortable bed, nice reading lamps built in to headboard, tub and shower and even a small chaise lounge!! TV was adequate though if you want a 42" flat panel you'll need to spend a lot more $ somewhere else. Included breakfast surprisingly good with UNSWEETENED instant Quaker Oatmeal (unlike places that only have packets loaded with unhealthy sugar), bagels, and best of all do it yourself waffles made in a real waffle iron that were excellent.

Only negatives were an AC/Heater unit that didn't seem to have a fan only setting, so kept cycling completely on and off as it heated the room (cool September night), and woke us up occasionally. A fan only setting that could supply constant "white noise" would be a good idea, similarly included fridge was noisy turning on and off, though it can simply be unplugged.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor around the corner of the building for maximum quiet and convenience.

We booked this Travelodge after reading various positive Traveler Reviews on Trip Advisor. The desk staff was informative & friendly. We were able to immediately print our boarding passes for our next-day flight. We found the room to be spacious clean, & quiet, while the king bed-with pillow topped mattress was very comfortable. This motel is conveniently located to the places we wanted to visit: Anthony's Restaurant & Seafood Market, the Christmas Tree Shop, & the Sachuest Beaches. If the weather hadn't been so monsoon-like, I'm sure we would have enjoyed the very clean and inviting outdoor swimming pool. My husband enjoyed the breakfast offerings: pastries, hard-boiled eggs, toast, bagels, fruits, beverages (including juices), & cereals along with homemade waffles. The price was right for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We chose a ground-floor room. We did hear the noise from guests immediately above us. Sounded like t...

I thought the hotel was Great! I loved the pool. A little small area, but clean. The rooms were okay, but clean. They are in a good location. Not too far from the beach (Flo's), shopping, and restaurants we wanted to go to. The breakfast in the morning was okay, but it was just enough for us. We are more lunch and dinner people. So a quick coffee in a bun in the morning was good enough. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to travelers.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a quick weekend getaway, this is the place to stay. The price is right. The...

When we travel, we only look for a clean comfortable room since we spend most of our time touring the area. This fit the bill nicely and then some. Free breakfast has a variety of self serve foods including waffles. Only fault is that the air conditioner trends to blast Arctic air at times.

It's a Travelodge so I was a little nervous...but was pleasantly surprised. The bathroom was in need of some updating but the room was clean and had plenty of outlets. The beds were comfortable and the shower was hot. The breakfast was decent. I don't know if I'd stay there for a long period but for a place to sleep before a day in Newport, the price was right and the beds were comfortable. No complaints!

We approached this motel with some trepidation given some of the reviews here but found it to be quite acceptable overall.

Reception was quickly and efficiently handled, our queries concerning local buses services being answered accurately and fully.

The motel is located in Middletown a little away from Newport so you would need to drive or catch a bus to get there. The 60 and the 63 bus can be caught from a bus stop near the motel. The latter is more frequent but stops running at about 7 p.m. and takes longer. The former runs periodically until late in the day and is more direct.

Our room on the ground floor was fine overall. The room and the bed were clean. A desk was provided and power points were ample. Coffee making facilities and a hair dryer were available. We felt that the bed was not comfortable: too soft and a tendency for occupants to roll into the middle. We felt that the mattress needed changing but this could be a matter of taste of course.

The bathroom was adequate, though perhaps in the need of some updating. Soap and shampoo were provided.

No meals except breakfast are available, but there are some restaurants within a mile of the motel. The breakfast was fine for this type of establishment: bagels, cereal, waffles and so on.

So a good choice for an overnight stop.
