We stayed at this small place on the Memorial Day weekend, without booking ahead of time. Found the hotel phone number in the local free magazine, called them up and stayed there for one night. The room was big enough for four people, had two queen-sized beds, a small TV and an air conditioner. The room was pretty clean, the linens were white and clean, the bed was comfortable. The shower was a little too small, however the towels were clean and soft, the water stream was a little too weak, but the temperature was normal. The place was very quite and had a free parking lot right in front of the room door, which was great. The location is perfect - close to the city center and Mansions. We rented the bikes for 24 hours, kept them in the hotel hallway. The complimentary breakfast was great with the variety of foods. The service was excellent! After the check-out, the hotel staff allowed us to leave our car on the parking lot, which was very helpful, as we planned to stay in Newport till the evening, biking around.
Overall experience was very good, though the rooms need to be upgraded and renovated. We do recommend this place for short stay.

On March 10 my wife and I decided to spend a weekend in Newport, Rhode Island. After searching between tens of B&B and hotels we decided to stay at the Brinley, the rooms looked nice from their website and the location was convenient.

John and Jennifer were very kind and friendly. The breakfast was amazing (especially the french toast!).

The room was nice. Beautiful furniture and fireplace, comfortable bed.

Definetly a good experience.

My sister and I discovered the Brinley about 12 years ago. Having stayed there multiple times, with and without our spouses we can honestly say this inn is worth your while!!!! If you are willing to sacriifice being in the "heart" of Newport in order to avoid that pricetag, then the Brinley is the place for you! John and Jennifer have poured their heart and souls into restoring and preserving the feel of this victorian inn and have done so with an endless amount of TLC. This inn is clean and very, very homey!!!! Jennifer prepares the most delicious breakfast each morning with English French Toast or her yummy Potato Bake, just to name a couple! This couple is present and friendly during your stay and we wouldn't go anywhere else in Newport!! Nine of us ladies spent the most enjoyable weekend there this past week and every one of us had nothing but good things to say!!!! The people are great, the food is great , the rooms are great and the feeling is great!!!!! Keep it up, John and Jennifer!! We love you!

  • Liked — the innkeepers, the food and cleanlienness of the rooms
  • Disliked — if I had to pick...the lacation

I have been searching for B&B's in Newport to try and book/block some rooms for June 2007 as I am getting married at Castle Hill at that time. My parents and I drove up for the weekend and decided to stay here. Needless to say, we were very disappointed.

My parents stayed in Room #14, which is quite small, has a queen size bed, and the bathroom was ok. As for me, I stayed in Room #5, where the room was clean, but the floors were sticky - my sneakers stuck to the floors. So whatever cleaning product they use for the floors just made the floor "stick."

I was excited to have a good nights sleep, but by 2AM, I clearly heard my neighbors stumble in from across the hall...and could hear their conversation about re-capping their night!

I woke up at 9am and hopped in the shower. This was the most disappointing feature in the room. There was NO water pressure! It was just spitting out water!! I have never experienced anything like it and I couldn't wait to finally go home!

I don't recommend this place at all!!

We do our best to make sure the rooms are cleaned. If you had reported the noisy guests across from you, we would have adressed the situation. There is a Noise Ordinance in the City of Newport. Distrubances of this kind are not tolerated.

We do renovations every year. Stop in to see us again the next time you are in Newport.

It has a nice location, right across the street from the very charming Hotel Viking and not that far down Bellevue from the mansions. But there is nothing else about this property worth recommending. It is dingey and run-down. The linens were worn and threadbare. Lousy pillows. A hard mattress. We did not have a good night's sleep. And the completely undistinguished breakfast does nothing to improve the situation. Good location, but stay elsewhere.

We do renovations every year. With our variety of rooms from romantic to deluxe to suites which accomodate up to six people, we are the best value in Downtown Newport, RI. Come and see us again the next time you are in town!
