If blindly following your GPS, you will find that the motel is not actually along W. Main Road, but some strategically-place signs will guide you around the block to the entrance on High Street. There is parking in front of the lobby entrance and more on the back side, adjoining the Hampton Inn parking lot. The staff was friendly and helpful with local knowledge to share with first-time visitors to the area.
Having staying at various brands of Marriott properties around the world, this was our first stay at any Residence Inn, so I do not know if this one is typical to the brand. There is a very attraction high-ceiling lobby with an inviting gas fireplace on a cold December evening.
Our assigned room was on the 4th floor and faced north overlooking Middletown. It was a large, comfortable suite, but we did have a rather noisy neighbor in the adjoining room for one of our night’s stay.
There is a bar just off the lobby, but we did not visit it during this stay. The buffet breakfast is average and typical of most motel brands in the USA. I noticed a nice-looking courtyard, which is used during the summer months, but it was too cold to enjoy in December.
Middletown and Newport are small towns by many people’s standards, so it isn’t very far to numerous good restaurants in the area, to include some in walking distance.
I would gladly stay here again.
