cant beat for the price

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.

Place to lay your head

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

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.

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

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.

pleasant

My friend and I wanted to spend a weekend in Newport without spending too much money unnecessarily. This was the best value for us. Yes we had to drive or take cabs to town but they were short and inexpensive (especially in comparison with the rates of the hotels in the center of town) Staff was friendly, room was clean. No complaints.

noisy motel

We stay for Memorial day weekend. No activities in the walking distance, but not that far to drive. Motel type accomodation. Good bed and mattress, but safe was not working, and no soundproof what so ever. We can hear every movement outdoor,and in the rooms above and next to us
