Best Western Newport Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

As a former local, I am familiar with all the local hotels. We usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express, but waited to long to book this time (and prices were $150 a night even with military discount). So the next best choice was Best Western. After seeing the updated rooms (approximately 5 yrs ago) we decided to try it. After reading previous review we requested to stay on the back side of the hotel to avoid the traffic noise. Our room was clean and cold when we arrived. We had a family of 4 staying in one room. Everything was clean and the second day the maid even left extra towels without being ask. Breakfast was good...eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, 3 different cereals, waffles, fresh fruit, apple and orange juice, along with coffee and pastries. Everything was very good. The only complaint was breakfast was removed promptly at 10am each day. Would have been nice to be able to sleep in a little bit on the weekends and still get a hot breakfast. I would highly recommend this Best Western.

Good in between spot going or coming to Asheville from Tennessee. Have stayed 4 times now. You exit off 40 and follow the french broad river into Asheville. Nice stop along the way. Good beds and good stop over. We stay every time we come to or leave NC

clean and conveniently located near highway - free breakfast - nice pool - a little loud in the parking lot with the guests that were there during our stay (unrelated to hotel itself but annoying nonetheless)

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here. Clean room, quality bedding, friendly staff, very nice pool which our kids enjoyed. Breakfast left something to be desired for us but others may think it's ok. It wasn't bad enough to give a lower rating. Besides there are several places within walking distance for food. We would stay here again. Close enough to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge to visit and not stay in the rat race there.

We stayed at this hotel on a passthrough from South Carolina to Indiana. We were placed in a room near the ice maker which proved to be super loud beginning at 7am when people began filling up large coolers with ice. The noise from the highway was loud all night, including sirens, trucks and motorcycles, and people setting their car alarms right outside our door. You should know that this is a hotel where each room has an exterior entrance. Our bathroom had a distinct dirty urine smell. It was not pleasant and I had trouble falling asleep. I do not recommend this hotel and wish I had paid a little more and had gone with the Holiday Inn across the street since I was up 5-7 times overnight.

You seriously won't find a better stay for the price. Excellent views, excellent staff, room was great and clean. Bathroom is a little tight, but that could be considered my only complaint. Next vacation I will be seeking out best western.

Stayed here on my way to Cincinnati . Just picked it out at the exit. Got the Aaa rate and basically saved the taxes. Very clean room and quiet . One of the better hotel breakfast that I run into. Free wi if easy on/ off to freeway and gas right across the street. Off Cosby Highway. All in all worth the couple extra dollars for a very comfortable bed and quiet room

This hotel is very clean and the staff is very accommodating. We stay here when we visit Dollywood in order to get out of the hustle bustle of Pigeon Forge. I recommend this motel to the travelling public.

We stay here a few times a year when we take our boat to Douglas Lake... The hotel is clean and everything has always functioned properly. Plenty of good parking for trailers, etc... Breakfast is better than average in my opinion with plenty of seating, etc.

This place is a hell hole!! The rooms r not newly decorated the bathroom is so small u cant even get dressed in it!! The carpet is dirty looking !! Don't waste ur money here!! The beds didn't have a bedspread on them !! Just sheets and some half thing on the bottom!!
