First and foremost, we were surprised - mainly from reading other reviews - at how comfortable the beds were in our room. It's rare when you get a good night's sleep your first night in a hotel room, but it happened here!
The location couldn't have more perfect for us - we needed to go on and off the Naval base constantly for two of the three days during our visit. We also visited downtown Newport and the immediate area, including the mansions and Cliff Walk, at least twice a day during the entire three day visit. The location of this Ramada couldn't have been more perfect - they even have their own traffic light for safe departure from the parking lot!
High marks to our check in and out person - super smooth and easy.
Moderate marks for the on-site restaurant: Prices, especially for the lobster meals were very good, and the ambiance was nice, but our server seemed to be a bit lacking professionally. But ... after you get tired of the hustle & bustle of the Newport harbor area nightlife, this restaurant was nice to have as a choice.
The only negative for us was the complimentary breakfast - after trying it once, we hit the Dunkin' Donuts 2 minutes down the street. If you're just a coffee, juice, and cereal person, it's OK. Otherwise we would advise hitting the road.
Overall, a nice find, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
