My wife, daughter and I recently stayed here (late June/early July 2012). The rates in Newport for lodging are high and my wife was looking to save a little money. We ended up here. Although the staff was mostly helpful/friendly and the on-site parking is a plus, the inn itself is nothing special.
We stayed in room 19 (in the carriage house). The windows of the room are directly on the street. And while not the busiest street in Newport it has enough traffic to make it noisy. Luckily we were there in the summer and with the A/C and dehumidifier running it masked a lot of the traffic noise. Also the shower faucet was leaking badly and the first night I was unable to shower as it only provided scalding hot water with no cold at all. We brought this to the attention of the staff and it was fixed the next day (both the leaking and the hot/cold water).
The breakfast is uninspired, as others have also mentioned. Juice/coffee, grocery store breads, cereal and packaged oatmeal that had sat so long that the contents had hardened.
This inn could be nicer with a little more care given by the owners. Maybe just a couple of fresh local items for breakfast, for example.
The rooftop deck is a nice spot and the inn itself is in a good location within an easy walk of Thames street and Bellevue Ave.
In retrospect we wish we had splurged just a bit more on our accommodations and stayed in a more memorable inn. We wouldn't go out of our way to stay here again.
