Newport is difficult if you are planning a stay on a budget. Hotels require a two-night stay.
I chose this hotel as we did not plan to be in the room much and didn't want to pay a premium
for a room we wouldn't be in for long. You can tell that the staff is trying hard to make this moderate hotel a good choice. It is in an area with other hotels and we felt safe. We had a ground floor unit in the back. There was adequate security on the slider door and at the entrance.
They had a fridge in the room as well as a dehumidifier. The place is clean, the beds are comfortable, the lighting over the beds is better than average. There was an extra vanity outside the bathroom which was greatly appreciated. They have a complimentary continental breakfast. It is minimal but we were glad for the coffee, tea and juices. If you stay, you can ask for a coupon at the desk for a 10% discount at the adjacent Applebees. I do not recommend eating there as the food was lousy. This property won an award for best hotel from Howard Johnsons and, again, the staff is trying very hard. Housekeeping was happy to provide extra towels and came to the room to check if we needed anything else. All in all, a good choice without spending a fortune.
We are truly appreciative of your positive feedback regarding our hotel and staff, as well as the level of detail you've provided for our future guests. Your review is a great encouragement to all of us and we thank you sharing your experience. We hope you'll find your way back to the Howard Johnson Inn in the not so distant future.
