Fair value, decent location

Would recommend Wed, Jan 7, 2015
Staff is very friendly, and restaurant and bar handles a crowd nicely. Great shuttle service too.

Entertainment hint

Take the shuttle down town Newport for nightlife, but be sure to get out of there well before last calls, or you'll never get a cab.

cant beat for the price

Would recommend Mon, Aug 11, 2014
Went to Newport for a couples weekend. The hotels in Newport can be very pricey so we opted for a cheaper hotel further from downtown and this hotel was just we were looking for. Close to downtown and honestly we only slept in the room and didn't partake in the amenities. The beds are very comfortable.

Everything was wonderful....the only complaint is that the Wi-Fi dropped out quite frequently. The staff is great and the restaurant was a pleasant surprise!

Location is ok, but have to drive to town. Staff was tough to deal with on checkin. Good price, but worth the extra money to stay closer to town

Penultimate Western

Would recommend Thu, Jul 3, 2014
As other reviewers have said, it's a Best Western, not a Sheraton - you get what you would expect for the money. We were on the ground floor, and one could easily hear conversations outside, but that's survivable. The room was clean and comfortable. The one BIG drawback was that the bathroom floor was treacherously slippery! We booked an accessible room for my mom, who has mobility issues, and that was very scary for her. My niece actually fell down because the floor was so slick! We found that, when wearing shoes, sliding carefully along the floor was safer than just walking. Barefoot, if the floor was dry, was a bit better. For us, though, with the mobility issues at the forefront, the slippery floor is a deal breaker. In all likelihood, We won't stay there again, though I would not discourage some other nimble person from doing so.

What can i say, it's a best western.

Would recommend Mon, Jun 16, 2014
You cannot walk into downtown Newport from here. Everything here was nice and clean, beds were super comfortable. Walls are a bit thin, heard some drunk folks running up and down the hall screaming around midnight and it sounded as if they were in our room. The front desk was wrong about the cab situation to town, said it would take 30-45 minutes to find a cab so we might as well just wait for their shuttle. Well, we called a cab and one showed up within 5 minutes. Maybe they wanted us to pay for their shuttle instead, maybe we got lucky.

Average Hotel Stay

Would recommend Tue, Jun 10, 2014
We were in town for a wedding and needed a place somewhere cheap and close to downtown. This hotel did exactly that, but it just needs to be updated. The walls are very thin and you could hear everything from the rooms beside you and the hallway. I could also smell smoke like the hallways hadn't been cleaned in a while. Other than that, it was an easy place to get to and a nice location.
