I went with my family (I'm in my mid 20's) and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The hotel owners are a couple who are incredibly welcoming. They were also very accommodating when we had small requests. A full hot breakfast is included: you pick an item from the menu (example, omelette) and Leeza (one of the owners) makes your breakfast right in front of you and brings you fresh, hot coffee. The family atmosphere was so nice and the service was great. It felt like we were among friends and family instead of the formal atmosphere in another hotel. They also have homemade ice cream right in the hotel if you have kids (the mint oreo was really delicious!)
The hotel is in a very convenient location - about a 7 minute walk (you save on parking and entry is free!) from Easton Beach (known by the locals as First Beach) and a 3-5 minute drive from Sachuest Beach (Second Beach). If the weather is good, First Beach is probably about as good as Second Beach. If it's a sunny day with no rain on the horizon, the water is very calm and beautiful. However, right before a rainy day, First Beach gets a lot of red seaweed. It's not harmful, but it is gross looking. Second Beach has less seaweed and some pretty sand dunes and rocks, so I do suggest you check it out at least once (parking is only $10 per car).
The hotel is also very close to the Cliff Walk. It's about a 20-25 minute to the Cliff Walk along the beach. You can do it once, but I suggest parking at one of the mansions instead (probably the Breakers) and using an entry point from there, as the Cliff Walk is 3.5 miles long, and even though you don't have to do it all in one go, it makes sense to save your energy. Just keep in mind that the mansions are open from 9 or 10 till 5 or 6.
Definitely check out the mansions as well. They have some package deals (like 2 for $24 or 5 for $31). I loved the Elms!
Finally, downtown Newport is a couple miles away. I didn't spend much time there, but it's a lovely view of Newport harbor and there are restaurants and cute shops.
In conclusion, we had a wonderful stay at this lovely hotel and would definitely recommend it!
