great economic value

I had a great rate for 3 nights over the Easter weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised at check-in that the actual rates would be considerably lower. And there was nothing lacking in the accomodations. Overall, a great value.

While all of the restaurants on the Newport waterfront are pricey, the quality at Flukes justifies the cost.

convenient and affordable

Bed was comfortable, location was close to where I needed to be and the price was reasonable. There was a restaurant in the building so I was able to have breakfast before starting my day.

Nice

The maid service was excellent. The room is what you expect for this price and the location is fine, just a few minutes drive to down town.

Did not stay

We did not stay at this hotel because when we got there , we found out that there was continental breakfast and the hotel resturant was going to cost too much for a breakfast. The room did not have a refridgerator and the bed was not compfortable. Plus the room was on the small size for a room with two double beds. Felt cramped. We changed hotels and had a better stay in the Newport area.

Beyond Dissatisfied

The hotel was nothing like its description, the staff was very rude and deceitful. We went for my sisters bachelorette weekend and I booked TWO rooms. When we got there one of the rooms was disgusting and so the five of us stayed in one room. They said I needed to pay for the extra people in the room. I said I would pay for one of the two which the manager agreed to. He then took a sale & AN AUTHORIZATION on my Credit Card charging me the full amount, thus lying to me FACE. DO NOT STAY HERE EVER!!!

Best/Western Mainstay Inn, Newport RI

Clean and comfortable, but not cared for as well as it could be. (Common doors hung up or didn't close correctly.) Quiet. Ordinary restaurant. Isolated. Must drive everywhere.

Fun Visit to Newport RI

The Hotel was clean and the room was comfortable. The restaurant has good food, however, we found the breakfast to be rather expensive.

Nice hotel

The hotel itself was very nice and clean. It was located just outside of the main town but very easy to get to. The only surprise was there was no continental breakfast. I thought that was a standard that even the cheapest motels would have.

short drive to beach or downtown

went to the beach and downtown to go out for a bachellorette. The only issue was the availability of cabs. If there was a shuttle for going out to the bars downtown it would have been perfect! We had a great trip.
