What nice staff, and what a wonderful location! The beds were comfortable, the morning breakfast was generous, and the room was spacious, with a comfortable bed. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone!

No complaints about the Jailhouse Inn. $165 for a large (albeit sloping roof) top-floor room seemed good value for a Friday night in leaf-peeping season. On-site parking is a real benefit. Breakfast is a 'help yourself' buffet available 7-11. No elevator, which was a pain carrying two suitcases. Overall, it has character, location and parking, which can't be bad!

Stayed at the Jailhouse Inn during Newport Jazz Fest , August 13-15. Went to see Harry Connick, Jr. (it rained and rained) We left the concert earyly, but that was ok because we love the Inn. Great room. Not too expensive even for summer. We have stayed there before, and will stay there anytime we go to Newport. If you go, try to get one of the rooms on their website. They REALLY DO LOOK LIKE THAT unlike some other places. The staff is great, not uppity like you think they would be in Newport. They even have FREE parking for one car. This is definitely the place to stay in Newport.
