“Endless hospitality, charm and”
Reviewed November 10, 2009

We chose the BurbankRose because of the location...though we were skeptical since most places mention that they are walking distance to everything and they are usually not. This Inn was very close to everything we needed. I stayed in the "wicker room" which was far too bright and cheery for my tastes, but after reading one of the other reviews, there was clearly a better room for me. Fortunately, we were able to view the other rooms prior to departure and they are all very clean, unique and tastefully decorated. Forget your toothpaste? No worries, plenty on hand. The coziness of the sitting room prior to our evening out was extremely relaxing. The continental breakfast, homemade scones and fresh raspberries were amazing. We also loved the after-hours pizza delivery... The innkeeper, Brian Cole, was beyond accomodating and is one of the reasons we will return soon! Brian will do anything to make his guests comfortable, a rarity in and of itself.

We stayed at the Burbank Rose this past weekend and could not have asked for a better location in Newport. It is literally steps from Thames St, the main shopping area, and the wharfs. We were even able to walk to the Cliff Walk, even though that was a bit further. No, it is not the most luxurious b&b - it is an old house and has the usual wear and tear, and the rooms and bathrooms are tiny - but if you want to stay in the middle of it all at a really great rate, then you cannot ask for a better place. It's a guest house, not a b&b, so there is not big gourmet breakfast, just some fruit and yogurt and pastries (the raspberry scones were great!), but as long as you know that beforehand you'll be fine. We were allowed to bring our small Boston Terrier with us, as well, which was really appreciated. I think if you go in with an open mind knowing that while it's not going to be the fanciest or biggest place you'll ever stay, you will find that you'll really enjoy the Burbank Rose!

Just got back from our stay at the Burbank Rose. The innkeeper Brian might be the most laid back guy in the business. He was a pleasure to work with. The Burbank Rose is a guest house not a Bed and Breakfast. So be prepared for a continental breakfast. The inn itself is nice. It does need some work (ie minor repairs and a fresh coat of paint). The place is clean. Our room was the southwest room and was cozy. If location is paramount then this is the place for you. Walking distance from all the shops and we even walked to the Breakers from here. I did enjoy my stay.

We got to stay at this charming inn over 4th of July weekend. The best part of this was the location, only a very short block from Thames Street, where the docks, shops, and great restaurants are. We parked the car in a lot next to the harbor, a block away, and parking was included in the $195 a night - overall, a good price for Newport! The building facade and doorway was covered with beautiful flowers in containers. Our room wasn't big, but included a full kitchenette with stove, mini fridge, coffeemaker, breakfast fixings, and all you need to cook should you choose. There's also WiFi and videos you can borrow for the TV. There's a charming sitting room upstairs where you can get more coffee, fruit or breakfast rolls - or a book. Again, the best part was being able to walk over to take a harbor tour, eat at one of many fine restaurants, or check out the nightlife. Brian recommended several places, and we enjoyed eating fantastic seafood at H2O, overlooking the harbor and watching the fireworks display. It's easy to get out and bike from there, or drive out to the beach or wildlife sanctuary. We'd be glad to stay again.

We wanted to stay in Newport on our way to Cape Cod, and didn't want to stay in a big hotel. This is a little difficult when you have a toddler. We were lucky to have found the Burbank Rose.

Brian Cole, our host, was warm, welcoming and gave us great tips about Newport - told us where we could eat, how to go to the mansions, and the easiest way to get around our toddler. He also offered us a pack n' play, but we already had our own.

The room had a small living room, a kitchennette, a bedroom and a bathroom with a shower. It was perfect for our needs. It was also all on one floor with one step down so our toddler felt comfortable exploring the space. The inn was also walking distance, really steps from town, but was not super noisy even though there was a huge concert going on.

Brian also provides juice, milk (he especially bought us whole milk) and cereals in the room. There is a breakfast room where you can supplement this breakfast and get some fruit.

Stayed in the third floor green room....I wish I had had a different room since this one was dark. The darkness was compounded by the hideous green paint on the walls, and the fact that half of the limited light fixtures had flourescent bulbs. That said, other rooms, such as the Yellow Room, or the South West Room seemed much more bright and cheery. Also, it was clear that the Green Room was not yet updated as other rooms had been. The inn keeper was extremely nice and accomodating. He was very tolerant of kids, and even installed a security gate at the top of the stairs to keep my toddler safe. The sitting room was a lovely cozy space to spend time in, and the location was great.

I stayed at the Burbank Rose for two nights during the summer season. I found it a pleasant place to stay, and very reasonably priced for the summer.

The owner, Brian, negotiated a deal with me as a single traveler so that I could get a good rate.

There is a nice sitting room/tv room upstairs to relax in the evenings and watch movies. This is also the morning breakfast room. Breakfast cereals, fruit, tea, coffee, sodas, and yogurt are available for an evening snack or a morning meal.

If there is any caveat, it would be that the front of the house faces Memorial Boulevard, which has a lot of traffic in the summer. You should pick a room in the back of the house for that reason. I picked a room in the back, and it had a central air unit, which drowned out most of the traffic noise.

I would stay here again. It is right around the corner from the Thames Street shops and a stone's throw from the wharves and boat tours.

Very comfortable and clean.
