Mainstay Hotel & Conference Center

Reviewed January 17, 2013

Since price was my focus when I booked a stay at the Mainstay Inn, I was very pleasantly surprised when I found I had a large, clean, comfortable room for the $47 price tag. Best of all, it had one of the most comfortable beds I'd ever encountered while traveling. The heating system kept the room at the right temperature, and the hot water was hot. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the on-site restaurant was reasonably priced with above-average food, and I couldn't have been happier with the trip. This is definitely the place to stay in the Newport area.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the requirement to sign an agreement not to smoke on threat of a $150 fine i...

The Mainstay Inn was clean, comfortable, and inexpensive. At $57 and some change per night , we were pleasantly suprised how quite our room and comfortable our bed was. The service from the front desk was friendly and professional.

Loved staying at the BW to ring in the New Year. Only 2 miles from the down town restaurants and shops, then back to the hotel for appetizers , then off across the street to Newport Grand for some gaming and cocktails. The band started at 9 and was very good. A safe, and inexpensive get a away with some friends.

Make a trip to Newport at least twice a year and Best Western is the only place we stay. The rooms are clean and service is great. The restaurant is excellent. Can't beat it for the price. We always be our "main stay" in Newport.

We booked a room for New Years Eve and got a great deal. The room was a suite and very large. There was a frig and microwave also. The kingsize bed is soooo comfortable. The room was clean. The hallways were unusually cold.
We had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and the steak was terrific. They didn't make the Choc. martini correctly, I sent it back and they tried again. Still not right, not sure why.
Breakfast was very good. No scimping on portions. They homefries have peppers and were delish.
The hotel is across from the casino. They also have a shuttle to take you into town. This place is well worth the $$. I will definitely be back in the summer.

Room Tip: Get the suite.

We spent one night here so we could see the mansions the next day. We slept so well we both woke up the next morning and said how great it was. The value you get at this hotel is more than enough. The room's are not anything special but overall this is a great hotel if you are looking to save a few $.
