“Good Value”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had never been to Newport and I couldn't believe some of the prices of hotels. The Best Western was best priced I feel. The room was clean the bathroom was very clean. Didn't have time to use the pool unfortunately but looked quick looked nice. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Mainstay Best Western when we travelled for a wedding. We found everything clean and in good working order. This Best Western does not include breakfast as most Best Westerns do but we found the hotel breakfast reasonably priced and a good variety of choices. The omelets and breakfast sandwiches were very tasty. The waitress we had was very good and had a great sense of humor. The Internet was included and the TV had a pretty good selection of channels. Across the street in the back of the hotel was a nice little uphill trail to a war memorial. The trail is owned by the Aquidneck Land Trust. Only drawback to the hotel was we could hear the pipes when people in other room took early morning showers.

Room Tip: A Shuttle bus was available for a fee.

I read the reviews on Trip advisor before I left so I was not expected too much but this was the worse hotel experience of my life. The room was filthy, had someone else's underwear on the floor, smelled and had not been vacuumed in recent history. I would not even recommend this hotel to an enemy. When I complained they give me a $40.00 credit--not enough, never again.

Good place to stay if you are looking for a good deal close to downtown Newport. Staff is helpful, friendly and pays attention to your needs. Rooms are clean and did not smell like smoke. Free Wi-FI in rooms a plus. If this hotel had an upgrade to their amenities (the pool & fitness center) and upgraded their decor, it would make a good place to stay into a great place to enjoy.

Staff are very helpful & nice. The room was clean, internet service good etc etc. The hallways left something to be desired, as the carpeting was quite dirty and musty smelling. The secondary entrance had the locking mechanism removed entirely, which was strange & definitely does not make one feel secure. Overall, for what it is price was good for the area, and it was a nice and uneventful stay.

This hotel has excellent service from all the people. I stayed in a suite because of staying there 6 days, refridge, microwave, safe are all part of the reason. The hotel is close to waterfront. I was there for the Newport Jazz Festival and it was close to Ft. Adams where the event was being held. Excellent price for the value of the room.
