Recent guest reviews

Good location with all kinds of stores around. Nice breakfast. Room was clean. Overall very satisfied.

Clean, met expectations, good breakfast choices, perfect place for an off-season family visit. Grandkids loved the pool!( We'll bring water shoes next time, as their toes got scraped on the pool floor).

Very good experience, however both times we attempted to phone the front desk for information, it rang and rang and rang. This was not at odd hours or a busy time at all. Extremely frustrating! There were at least two staff working both times.

This hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly and very customer oriented. The breakfast was great, hot items were kept hot...and all items kept stocked. Would recommend staying here...great price, comfortable beds.

the staff was very helpful, our room was clean and had all the expected amenities. A very nice touch was cookies in the lobby in the evenings. The breakfast buffet was well stocked and had a good number of choices. The only slightly off-putting aspect to our stay was the smell of chlorine that was apparent in the hallways throughout the hotel.

My first time staying at a Holiday Inn Express and it was a wonderful experience. Was in a King room with couch and kitchenette area. The front desk has a DVD program list of DVD's available and you're able to watch them at no charge as long as you return it before your stay is over. The location was perfect for traveling in the area and/or downtown. Close to restaurants and shops. Great pool & hot tub!

the hotel exceeded all my expectations. would recommend to friends and family. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel was in a bit old conditions compared with other Holiday Inn hotels. I was disappointed. The location is not bad, but I recommend Newport area.

Very frustrating experience. Arrived late at night, checked into our room, got all settled and unpacked. Then went to leave for dinner...only to find out our door would not lock. Had to re-pack everything and change rooms. And on the 2nd morning, no hot water in the shower.

The swimming pool looks very clean and a lot of people swam there. The front desk server was very friendly. Clean and large room.

Nice, quiet place, nothing wrong with it, everything as you would expect from Holliday Inn.

The front desk would not answer the phone to connect to the rooms.

The room is vey tidy and clean, the breakfast is so good

I have consistently found the HI Express line to be an affordable, comfortable, and reasonably convenient chain and this facility lived up to that standard. Fancy amenities - no, but I wasn't looking for that nor did they hold themselves out as such. Not in the heart of Newport, but two miles down the road and very accessible. Clean, comfortable rooms. Pleasant front desk staff. Hot tub was a nice offering on a cold winter night. Breakfast was more than adequate and the cinnamon rolls were excellent. Can't go wrong here, unless you are looking for fancy lodging right on Thames Street.

OK? I say this because there was some nice people at the main desk!

Excellent for my business trip. Fast clean with great people. I would gladly stay here again.

close to new port ocean drive and good value for the price.

This hotel was great for the quick stay I had. I needed to be close to the Navy Base and this couldn't have been a better option. Very close to downtown as well. Overall, great stay!

Nice clean hotel. The staff was great. They let us check in early so we could enjoy our day in Newport. The drive to downtown Newport from the hotel was so easy. Take a left out of the parking lot and it's a straight drive about 5 miles away. Great alternative to the more expensive hotels right in Newport. This is my second time staying here and I will definitely be back again. My only complaint is the water pressure in the shower.

Overall the stay was ok. The bedding was comfy and the size of the room was good. Liked having breakfast included. I did get stuck with the room directly next to the pool and breakfast area.The noise factor was an issue because of this. Drunk people coming back in the wee hours of the morning congregated in the breakfast room making it hard to sleep. Had to call the front desk about this and the desk is right across from that area so they were already aware of the issue and didn't shut it down until I called and complained. Otherwise the room was clean enough and had everything I needed.
