This was our first time in Newport, it was truly BEAUTIFUL!! You wake up to a beautiful view of the water. We went during the summer so we got to have a front row seat to some fantastic yachts. Located right next to Bowen's Wharf, surrounded by cute shops and tons of places to grab a bite. A lot of...

Bannister Wharf is phenomenal. It has the old cottage, beachy feel of New England. The rooms are roomy and clean. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The one thing that you absolutely can NOT take away from the wharf is the peace, beauty and tranquility of the waterfront decks for rooms 1-4. My husband and I have spent every one...

The view was beautiful overlooking harbor. Room was adequate TV was very small I would say a small 13" computer screen size which was not good. It rained so we had to head back to room probably little earlier than we would have liked and the TV was a big disappointment. Few other things as well, hot water was not...

Clean and tastefully appointed rooms with a deck right outside your door with fabulous views of Newport Harbor. Located in the heart of the village, you are within walking distance to everything including some great dog friendly outdoor eateries.

We arrived in the afternoon and noticed that they were varnishing the floors in the store underneath our room. dropped our things off and...

This is a very convenient location in downtown with parking and in close proximity to a number of restaurants and pubs. The rooms are large with coffee makers and small refrigerators. The TV (at least in Room #5) is small and quite a distance from the bed so long distance viewing is problematic. Staff was friendly and was able to...

The room was nice and clean but a bit small. Housekeeping came every day to tidy up and replenish our stay with clean, fresh towels and chocolates. Nice location too as it is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping areas. It's a bit pricey though.

Two couples stayed here for 3 nights over the 7/4 weekend. We had room 5 & Suite 1 overlooking the stores with a "private deck" between us. Night 1: ants in our room, even in our bed. They couldn't help us until morning because they had yacht guests and their parties to attend to so we handled the ants ourselves....

Stayed in Newport for two nights. The location of these guest rooms is great, but extremely outdated. A nice new paint job would certainly help. The size and cleanliness was good, but it's not warm or inviting. The ACs are very loud, TV old and not very clear. If you are looking for a great location near the water and...

We stayed in a double room. It was very clean with decent space, nice linens, good size bathroom, mini frig, TV etc. The best part is having seating right outside your room that looks over Newport Harbor. And the location can not be beat. And in the end the price is very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area....
