Hotel is definitely well used but has clean rooms and clean bathrooms and no "germ" collecting bedspreads on the beds. The pool area is good, gets a lot of use during summer months. I was especially impressed with the attached restaurant, the North End Steakhouse. They have a very extensive menu and the prices are very reasonable, especially for a place in Newport. I had the open faced prime rib sandwich and was pleasantly surprised when I received an actual slice of prime rib, about 10 ozs worth, cooked medium rare, placed over toasted bread slices. Came with lettuce and tomato and a side of french fries. I think it was a superb deal at $10.95. So, if you're looking for an acceptable place to stay without breaking the bank and without having to search for a restaurant, this is your place. There's lots of parking, too, although you can't tell with all the cars there. Lastly, this hotel is located DIRECTLY across the street from the Grand Newport Casino, so you can easily just walk across the street to go play. Just know that while the casino is open to either 1 am or 2 am depending on the day of the week, the casino doesn't open until 10:00 AM......but still a good way to kill time while waiting for your room to be ready.
