This hotel is a hidden gem in Newport, RI. Clean spacious rooms in a boutique type hotel. Better than average continental breakfast. Only negative is the wireless network, which is very slow. Walkable distance from upper Thames St shops.

We arrived after a long drive and was greeted by the reception person who appeared to lack interest in guest or perhaps we were interfering with her quiet evening. The room was located at the end of the hall on the first floor; neat, clear and quiet. The WiFi was basically nonexistent, it required moving to the breakfast room to...

We had a huge handicap accessible room right off of the lobby. Felt very homelike. Everything was clean except for the overstuffed armchair. Think these should not be in hotel rooms unless they have some kind of cover that can be removed and laundered. Breakfast was just off the lobby and had enough selection to get you started. They did...

This inn desperately needs some tlc... 1. The carpets were filthy. 2. The decor is dated. 3. The furnishings are falling apart. 4. There is no water pressure in the shower. 5. The windows are cracked. 6. There was a moldy tea bag in the coffee maker for the duration of our stay. The whole place just feels cheap and...

The location and price of the hotel were fine. However, the place really needs new carpeting and windows. I learned that it used to be a nursing home that was converted to a hotel. It looks like nothing has been upgraded ever. I was surprised this was part of the Ascend Collection.

Newport is expensive, and you still need a car. Staying at the Carriage House and parking in one of the Newport muni lots is still a better value. My room was embarrassingly large with couch and fridge. I sent a golf bag up in advance-it was in my room when I arrived. I needed a box to ship some stuff...

This is a great place in an area of large chains and expensive hotels that seems more comfortable. Short drive into Newport harbor area, mansions or the beaches, yet in a peaceful neighborhood setting. They have a great deck out in the back you can sit on and relax. The place is very clean, rooms are large and staff is...

This place was a headache from the moment we arrived. The check in was slow and unfriendly. The only plus was the AC was working and kept the room cold. We were a little worried when we arrived at the how dated the first floor rooms were. The first mistake was the dead earwig found under the mattress. It just...

I stayed here with my family for Memorial Day weekend and paid top dollar. Our room was located directly off of the lobby/breakfast area. It was a horrible location for a room and looked more like a location for a broom closet. The man sitting at the front desk barely acknowledged our presence upon arrival and was condescending and visibly...
