We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip to Newport. It had the best price for a non-smoking king bedroom in the entire area for a September weekend. We decided to book it figuring we would barely be at the room and it was affordable. The room was clean but it was incredibly moist in there. Everything from the floors, sheets, any papers on the desks were damp. We had the AC going and it was still very humid. Both my husband and I woke up congested the first morning, not sure if it was a coincidence or not.
Overall, it is a convenient location (very short ride to Newport), the room was clean but I'm still weary of there possibly being a mold issue in our room. Flat screen TV was nice but would have benefitted from HD since we rented a movie and it was blurry. There is a nice pool and jacuzzi, we didn't use it but it looked clean.

Based on the reviews here, we decided to give this HJ a try. We stayed 2 nights and liked the hotel. It isn't high end, but it isn't a flea bag either. It's very clean. Indoor pool, jacuzzi (which we didn't use but looked clean). The added bonus was a balcony. Small, but 2 chairs which allowed us the extra room to sit out and enjoy the weather. Very convenient to all of Newport. Very friendly staff who were only too happy to make some recommendations for near by restaurants. Found a coupon on line for $79/night which they honored with no question. No breakfast but at $79/night, I could afford to eat out. Highly recommend.. and I'm very fussy about hotels and their cleanliness.

We visit my Mom at her assisted living apartment in Tiverton, RI every 2 months. Since it is a 6 hour car ride away, we have been staying overnight at this hotel each time because it is clean, well-priced for the Newport area, and pet-friendly. The staff is friendly and professional and we haven't been disappointed in any of our trips. It only costs an extra $10 for our pet. We like staying in Middletown because if its proximity to the Newport harbor and restaurants. Formerly, we stayed at a hotel in Westport, MA (different brand). The hotel costs about the same but they charge $35 for pets.

I would agree with other reviews - this hotel was a great option for us to stay near Newport. The room was clean and tidy. The hotel is conveniently located (only 5-10 min from the city center), and the price was affordable (we got it through Hotwire). The only thing that was missing was breakfast.

Booked this hotel for a couple of nights Labor Day week. It is very close to downtown, just a few minutes down the road. It's no frills but very clean. Not the most modern place - no flat screen tv, nothing high end in the bathroom but the fact that I could walk around on their freshly vacuumed, clean carpet without feeling disgusted and the sliding door with small terrace made up for it. Bed very clean. People who work there are very nice. They check in with you and ask if all is ok. No breakfast with the stay but for $129 per night on a holiday weekend, how could I complain. Might pay a little extra to stay in Newport next time just to be able to walk to everything but wouldn't rule this place out.

Room Tip: We were on 2nd floor, I think there are only 2 floors in the hotel and we carried our bags up the st...
