We were very pleased with the cleanliness of our room. The location was very convenient to downtown Newport. We would definitely stay here again.

Maintanence had to come fix the toilet 5 times do to it not flushing. We had to keep the bathroom door closed due to the stench coming from the bathroom. The hot tub gave both my kids, myself and my guest a rash (pseudomonas follicultis) commonly known as hot tub follicultis. When the gm was notified, she was quite rude and refuses to take responsability. We didnt even get an appology. One would think that if your hotel was the reasoning behind getting 2 young children sick, you would be a little bit nicer. Even though we have medical documentation, she still denies it came from the hot tub there. 'we get our water checked monthly so it couldn't be from here.' there is only one way to get it and since I do not have a hot tub at my house, it has to be from there.
The staff at the front desk were pleasent and very helpful. Coffee avalible day and night was also very nice.

HojoNewport, General Manager at Howard Johnson Middletown Newport Area, responded to this review, November 12, 2012
I am sorry for the problems that you and your family are experiencing. Medical problems of the type you describe can be very uncomfortable. Please be assured that we take reports of this nature very seriously. I have observed from your TripAdvisor profile that you also stayed at another Middletown hotel and have commented on their swimming facilities and have given them a similar Trip Advisor rating. While I can’t comment on your experience at the other hotel I would like to respond to your experience at the Howard Johnson Inn. Please know as soon as your concerns came in we took the immediate action to investigate the situation. Our pool and whirlpool are tested 5 times each day and a record is kept of those readings. I reviewed all pool and whirlpool records during the time you stayed with us and the information indicates that the chlorine and pH levels were in the correct range as dictated by the RI Department of Health. As a precautionary measure, I also contacted the RI Department of Health: the health inspector came down and checked our pool and whirlpool records and tested the water in our pool and whirlpool. Her findings were that our hot tub and pool were and are properly maintained. Thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention and for the opportunity to investigate them.
