“Loved The Admiral”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Stayed there during the America's Cup World Series last week (6/26-29). Great location, great history, great service and loved my room. Rick the owner was awesome and always checking to make sure we were doing ok or need anything.

No sure what the issue is with breakfast for some - my omelette, sausage and coffee were great each morning and the staff were busy, but very nice. If you need more than that to get the day started, go to a restaurant.

Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Since its in the historic district, parking is tight, but available.

Great location on historic Clark street. My bed was comfy and the room was spacious. The breakfast wasn't good. This poor lady had to cook, clear and take orders for everyone. She was way too overworked and the food turned out terribly.

My title says it all. My wife and I stayed here nearly a week toward the end of July. The service was excellent, the location ideal, the rates very competitive (when shopped online), and the room in which we stayed-comfortable. This B&B was a terrific value for us. We will likely return to Newport next Summer and, if we elect to stay at a B&B again, we will definitely consider the Admiral Farragut.

We booked the Cleveland Inn last minute through a Trip Advisor link to booking.com. Got a bad feeling at check-in with this greeting from Rick, "Name? Credit card." Now, I have been born and raised a yankee, but this seemed poor form for a historic B&B in a tourist town, even in New England. We proceeded to get what felt like a "free downgrade" to the Admiral Farragut next door since we were early for check in. Next morning, slow service at breakfast. No coffee, sour milk. Had to walk next door, to get coffee and settle for cream. Met Rick there again who seemed agitated I was walking down the street with a coffee mug, but he did not apologize for my inconvenience. Instead, at the end of our short conversation, I wound up asking him not to get the staff next door in trouble. Honestly, I just got the creeps from this fellow. This all said, the bed was comfy and the location was quiet and convenient. Breakfast the next day was improved at the Clarkston Inn next door. Something is not quite right between this sister group of B&Bs, and I could not recommend them unless you are in a jam.

We had booked at the Cleveland House next door but was given the option with checking out the rooms available first and so took the ground floor room at this Inn and got first dibs for breakfast the following morning. Remember to put your name on the sign in breakfast list for your time preference. The french toast was good.
The only odd thing was only 1 bath towel for 2 people and it was a whirlpool bath.
Also, very tight squeeze in the parking lot.

BigMamaNewport, Owner at Admiral Farragut Inn, responded to this review, September 16, 2011
Thank you so much for your review and we are happy that you enjoyed our French Toast made with Portuguese Sweet Bread. I apologize for the towel shortage in your room; it was definitely an over-sight. We normally supply our larger rooms with 3 towels and we are happy to supply additional towels upon request. Parking in Newport is extremely tight, especially the historic district where the Admiral Farragut is located. We feel very fortunate to have our own parking lot; however, we do recognize that it can be difficult to maneuver large vehicles. We are able to assist in finding street parking, when necessary.

...and excellent service. We stayed in the attic room mentioned on one of the reviews below. It was perfectly fine. It had a light an airy quality, ample space and a new bathroom. The owners and other staff were welcoming and friendly throughout our visit. On Saturday morning, my wife and I both had blueberry pancakes and sausage, cooked to order for breakfast. It was a great start to the day. On Sunday, we had to check out very early but the owner made sure we got coffee and fruit to tide us over. The inn is on a quiet street, less than a 5 minute walk from Thames Street. We don't visit Newport often enough but the Admiral Farragut Inn was a great find and we hope to get back there in the fall.
