My wife & I have had the pleasure of attending the Newport International Boat Show for the past 15 years and have stayed at the Artful Lodger for each of those visits. This facility is truly considered our Newport "home" and we look forward to returning every fall.
We love the central location with off-street parking(everything in the downtown area is within reasonable walking distance, the less you need to drive a car in Newport the better!), the clean accomodations, the variety of home cooked breakfasts, and the hospitality of the innkeepers and staff. We've personally never been disappointed. And, over the years, we've also occasionally read through the guest book in the inn's entrance foyer. The overwhelming majority of comments are extremely favorable and usually end with "we'll be back".
As a bank commercial loan officer with 30 years of experience that has many customers engaged in both lodging and dining, I have a unique perspective and know full well how difficult these businesses can be. Most owners, including the innkeepers at the Artful Lodger, want to make your stay enjoyable and will try their best to address their guests concerns. Sadly, many choose not to say anything during the visit, but leave with only negative opinions. I would encourage those of you with concerns to always give management an opportunity to correct whatever problems you encounter.
Newport and the surrounding area is beautiful almost any time of the year. I would recommend a visit and try the Artful Lodger yourself.
