        Individual guest reviews

        • Couple
          4.6

          Running out of space in the "not liking" section. ... I asked to take the charge off and when I get the receipt I noticed that the charge is still there. I ask to revise the amount and the lady says "sure, I see, there's a mistake". After about two minutes she gives me a new receipt with a higer(!) total amount. Seriously, how wrong does it get? Apparently, initially the amount was taken off was greater by 2 dollars, so I ended up paying higher price at the end than it was in my initial invoice. And that all after I was placed in the room of wrong type!

          Very disappointed experience. I reserved a king bed but was placed in a room with two twin beds. The staff was very unprofessional telling that "don't worry the rate is the same". I had a reservation for the room of specific type, and telling me that the wrong type of room is the same price is an insult! The staff didn't even try to offer to make my stay more comfortable. Banging on the door in the morning by the cleaning is also not welcomed. Upon checkout there's a creepy policy of adding an extra $1.50 charge for using deposit box that wasn't even mentioned verbally. Good thing I've read a the posted sign about this "policy" and an option to request to take the charge off. See other section to continue...

          Thank you--the rooms were very clean, comfortable, and well-kept. I and my friend truly appreciated the shuttle service around town. Driving around Newport as a tourist would have been a mind-bender, and the fee was very reasonable when compared to the cost of gas and parking.

        • Group of friends

          the room was good size, we had the King suite. Bed comfortable and room was clean.

          Service was slow when we ordered lunch and an error was made with my order.It was not busy at this time, just wanted a sandwich to take out to the pool

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          King size bed, very clean non smoking room. Would recommend.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Nice staff--restaurant personnel were very friendly. Housekeeping staff were very resposive to our requests (new hairdryer to replace one that was making terrible noises, for example). Although rooms are not luxurious, they are clean, comfortable and pleasant. Much less expensive than other hotels in the area for this time of year (June).

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The hotel was very good. The room was spacious and more than comfortable - We were very happy. Thank you!

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          no bed bugs and bed ok comfortable

          the corridor smelled and the key did not work

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          It was simple, clean and the staff was helpful when we needed a taxi.

          It was over-priced and check-out could've been more friendly.

        • Group of friends
          3.8

          Nothing. It was out of the way. When returning back to room after being out all day found the door open. The staff tried to say we left it open. Did not want to know.

          A poor hotel. Not very up on security. Outside doors allowed to be wedged open with towels.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Very convenient to downtown Newport, RI.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          it would have been perfect if we had had connecting rooms. the hotel has a small swimming pool, and they could do better in creating some nice atmosphere there (it all looks a bit cold, even when temp gets over 90°...)Nevertheless, the rooms are clean, parking is easy, and New Port is only a short drive....

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Refrigerator in the room and plenty of space in the room itself.

          Fitness facility did not open until 8AM.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Good sized room and large, large bed.

          Very difficult to exit the driveway from the Hotel onto the highway. Funcky smell in room upon arrival, disappeared once we turned the air conditioning on. The room needed another light at the hall closet area.

        • Single
          3.8

          The rooms are not sound proof. That a hotel would be built with two floors that are not soundproofed floor to floor or side to side is absurd and simply cheap and appalling. I do not stay in a hotel to share my rented space with people who stay up late and party. I hated the hotel for that reason. cheap and worse!!!!!!!!

          Not one damned thing did I like about the Best Western which I usually favor. In this case bw was awful experinece all the way. I hate the hotel.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          The staff was professional and informative and moved quickly to accomodate us. The Hotel entrance has a nice,clean,upscale look to it and makes a great first impression. This Hotel was extremely busy and seemed to have a good reputation. The location was perfect as the downtown area was only a few miles away for eating out and shopping.
