    water problems

    The location of the hotel was good for us. In the room for the first time, there was a perfume smell that appeared to be there to mask a musty odor pervading the room. Opening the window helped a little bit. That aside, the room seemed nice enough. But the sound of water running through pipes would kick in frequently during the night and late evening. The bed was comfortable, and we slept well. The next morning, turning on the shower, the pipes started vibrating very loudly when the temperature of the water was adjusted to more or less the right spot. A jackhammer sound through the wall. One could avoid this by taking a cold shower. One quick, cold shower down, my partner tried to take his shower. In the middle of washing his hair, the water shut off, apparently because the room above or next to us had turned their water on, siphoning off all the water. We complained at the desk, and asked that room not be cleaned so they would not spray more perfume. The next morning, the shower was exactly the same.


    Average - on everything. Less expensive than most places in Newport. Food at the bar/restaurant was not the best. Bus access to downtown was good and easy. But taxi service on a busy weekend in tough. Next time, we’ll pay more and stay downtown.

    Great - except...

    Best shower I have ever had in a hotel!! Only down side - I left my own pillow and very specialized pillow case at the hotel and when I returned several days later it was not there! The head of housekeeping told me "no one ever comes back to claim pillows".

    Travelers tip on saving a few bucks

    Very good rate

    OK for the price

    The whole place smelled musty. Close to downtown Newport and for the price I’d say its ok as long as your not staying in the room other than to sleep.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    We arrived late, so the night crew at the main desk wasn’t as "cheery" as the day staff might have been. But overall, we were pleasantly surprised by the size and cleanliness of the room.

    Okay place

    Our room was clean, large and comfortable, but certainly not luxurious. It was initially hard to find because the signs were poor. It was fine for what we needed. We appreciated having the microwave and decent size fridge in our room.

    Nice hotel for the money

    room was clean and we have stay at this hotel before.

    Best Western NewPort

    Hotel was clean and a good stay for the price. Close to town and has a restaurant and bar on site.

    Great Hotel!!!

    This is a great place to stay! I found it to be very convienient to area attractions, easy to get in and out of Newport. It was very clean,the room was very spacious and the staff friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.

    cant wait to go back

    We had so much fun and enjoyed have ing a bar in the hotel.

    very impressed

    nice views,good food,very friendly.

    great location for the price

    great price, comfy bed,some dust on ac unit and lamps. friendly staff.would go back again as the price was great.

    Pleasant Surprise

    Hotel was very close to downtown Newport and we had a lovely suite with several windows for our week long stay which gave us lots of room to spread out. The pool was nice but didn’t have many lounge chairs, the restaurant was ok, and the guest computer was incredibly slow. But because of our great room we had a terrific stay and would definitely go back.

    Excellent value for the money

    I only had one minor problem with the hotel. We went with another couple and were in rooms 121 and 123, right off the lobby and next to the back doorway. As soon as you opened the door to Room 121 there was a Lysol/chemical-type smell which my husband thought it was stagnant water but I’m not sure. It thought it might be something for cleaning since the cleaning equipment was right next to that room. It was my sister’s room and she didn’t mind it so much and it did seem to disappear after a while, but it would have bothered me if it was my room.

    Travelers tip on recreational activities

    The casino across the street was fun!!! We went there every night.

    Best Western

    The hotel staff was friendly. The room was very nice and comfortable. Very clean bathroom!

    fairly inexpensive, but not too far from center city

    It was a pleasant stay that was fairly inexpensive and only about 10 mins. from the downtown area

    Great food - rest of hotel was fair

    The restaurant staff and food were great. The nightly dinner specials were very reasonably priced. The rooms were clean, but very cramped with a big wardrobe placed awkwardly in the room instead of a closet. The room had a microwave and refrigerator which was a plus. The only size beds available were double beds, and they were quite uncomfortable. If you are only sleeping 1 person to a bed, it would probably be okay.

    Great getaway location on the cheap

    This was my 4th time staying at this hotel and each time has been great. The hotel is across the street from the slot casino, so there’s something to do at all hours. A five minute drive brings you right downtown to the shopping and waterfront area. A ten minute drive will bring you to the mansions and beach. The hotel is right off the highway and easy to find. You will not find a better rate on the island with great proximity! As for the inside of the hotel, the rooms are clean and a decent size. The bathrooms could use some renovating, but for the money, they’re awesome. I’d recommend this place over and over again.

    Travelers tip on local attractions

    Across the street from a slot casino. 5 mins away from main shopping area. 10 mins away from mansions and beach.

    emnoyed our stay

    Very nice, clean hotel close to the navy base.

    Nice hotel

    Clean and quiet rooms at a reasonable price. Exactly what we needed for a weekend in Newport.

    suited us perfectly

    We would have liked to be closer to town but it was close enough and the price was right. Id suggest it to friends. THe hotel was brand new and the ladies who worked the desk were helpful.

    Travelers tip

    go to Zelda’s on Thames Street and get coffee @ Empire on Spring Street. AMAZING!

    Comfortable Place/Good Price

    This was a pleasant hotel to stay at.

    Travelers tip on saving a few bucks

    It’s really not to hard to walk all over Newport from this hotel. You can save on parking fees if you walk to the down town area from the hotel. The staff was very helpful with that.

    Wouldn’t recomend

    Not very clean, no ice or vending machines on second floor. Noisy location. No free breakfast.

    Very nice stay

    We enjoyed our two-night stay. The room was very clean, and the adjoining restaurant/bar was very nice. The desk clerks were extremely helpful and friendly.

    Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay

    Once you learn you can catch the bus across the street, getting to the Visitors’ Center was easy. The best part was the bus only costs $1.75!

    Good stay

    Good value for money.Clean. Close to town. Would go back.
