Spring Street Inn Disappointing
I stayed at the Spring Street a few days ago and found it disappointing. Our room was on a busy corner with loud traffic roaring by. As the owner showed us the room she also pointed out the sound machine for drowning out outside noise and later that day we realized why we would need it. The food was good but the man serving breakfast was quite rude to one of the other guests as she was trying to help him as he was serving her. He told her to stop helping that he had done this thousands of times and didn't need her help. She indicated that he had been surly with her the prior morning at breakfast as well. If these innkeepers want people to stay in their B&B's then they should at least be cordial to their guests. I would not stay there again.
Enjoy Going Back Year After Year!
I have vacationed in Newport dozens of times, but for the last 5 years I keep going back to the Spring Street Inn. It is a wonderful establishment and the owners make you feel right at home. I always reserve the Harbor View Suite, which is beautifully decorated, clean, and spacious. There is a TV & VCR in the room for my viewing pleasure and a wonderful deck off of the living room to sit and enjoy the glorious Newport sunsets. The bruch served everyday is first-class and plentiful. I can understand why they were featured in the Spring edition of Newport Life Magazine. I cannot wait to get back there this Fall to spend another memorable vacation.
Our stay at the inn was wonderful. We highly recommend this for anyone wanting a great stay in Newport.
Location: The location was great. Spring St is 1 block parallel to Thames St (the main st. in Newport). This made it very convenient but far enough to avoid the crowds and noise. It's also close to Bellevue which is the main mansion st and you can take the RIPTA trolley on Bellevue.
Innkeepers: Jack and Pat are great. Two of the nicest and most interesting people. Very friendly, accessible and totally not intrusive. Pat made a batch of choc chip cookies, lemonade and iced tea, every day and left them in the common room.
Breakfast: To die for. It kept us full all day. You have a great choice of their special omelet, fruit crepe, real french toast and eggs any style. Hash browns, sausages, real maple syrup, you get the idea. It totally lives up to its reputation.
Rooms: We stayed in the Harbor View suite. Room number 6. 6 & 7 are on the 3rd floor, 3 - 5 are on the 2nd near the common TV room and 1 & 2 are near the dining room. If you want guaranteed peace and quiet, we recommend the suite or room 7. The inn was very quiet in general but we felt in theory you could've heard some noise in the morning if you were near the dining room or the TV if you were near the common room. But I say again, that it was totally peaceful while we were there.
The suite has its own separate living area, small deck and a bath with jacuzzi. All the rooms have their own private bath but if you like staying in the room a lot like we do, its great to have your own couch and TV. Otherwise, you'd have to go the common room. The jacuzzi was nice and they have these great bath fragrances you can use as well.
The deck is a small area outside the living room and the view is really just other houses but it does face the bay.
Parking: There was enough parking for 7 cars or so. One for each room, we suppose.
Incredible place to stay
My husband & I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Spring Street Inn in Newport Rhode Island and would highly recommend this lovely Inn to anyone of discerning taste. The Inn is just lovely and very conveniently positioned in the Historic District of Newport; the Harbor, shops, restaurants and mansions are all within walking distance. The Inn-Keepers, Pat & Jack are simply wonderful. The breakfast that is provided daily is second to none. The rooms are beautiful and beyond comfortable. For the money it does not get any better than this.

Newport: Spring Street Inn is the place to stay!
Recently, we stayed at Spring Street Inn in Newport, RI and we loved it! The Innkeepers(Jack and Pat) were fantastic! They provided us with tips on the Cliff Walk, made reservations for a great restaurant and shared their insight/stories with us. They were warm, knowledgable people who were great hosts. The Spring Street Inn is located within a few minutes of downtown Newport shopping and restaurants, but is located far enough away from the action to still be quiet so you can sleep. The Inn is beatifully decorated and the breakfast(which comes free with the cost of room), was terrific. We had the French Toast(amazing) and the Omellette, in addition to the fresh fruit, juice, coffee and 4-5 different types of freshly-baked muffins. The breakfast alone is worth staying there. I look forward to coming back to Newport and I know where I will be staying when I go!
Spring Street Inn in Newport will put a spring in your step!
What a wonderful experience it was to share the hospitality of Pat and Jack, the owners of the Spring Street Inn in happening Newport Rhode Island. Our room was beautifully appointed with a queen size canopy bed with very tasteful comforter and pillows. The bathroom was exceptionally clean. We were welcomed in the late afternoon with afternoon ice tea, lemonade and homemade chocolate chip cookes. Breakfast the next morning was quite delicious, consisting of fresh melon, homemade muffins and choice of hot entree, expertly prepared by our gourmet chef hostess. This inn in highly recommended and we would return in a minute! Marla and Phil
Nice-but watch your step!
My husband and I were in Neport for the Jazz Festival in August 2004. We spent five or six nights at the Spring Street Inn. As soon as we pulled into the small tight parking lot, the owner was right there, waving her arms wildly and telling my husband how and where to park. This was not so bad the first time, as the parking lot is small. But it became an annoyance and a bit of a joke amoung some of the guests, as she did it every time anyone pulled in. We were all middle aged adults, telling us one time how and where to park would have sufficed. This behaviour coupled with a few other incidences made us feel that the owners are a bit too intrusive, and it made us uncomfortable. It felt as if we had to "walk on egg shells" or risk being fussed at. The rooms are clean and well kept, though not large. There are no T.V.'s in the rooms, only in the small common area on the 2nd floor. We were trying to keep up with all the hurricane activity back at home, but the T.V. was in use by others when we wanted to get an update.
The breakfasts were well prepared and tasty...just don't ask for seconds as one guest at the table did! He was totally humiliated by a snappy remark made by the other owner who was doing the serving. We're trying another B&B next month when we return for the Jazz Festival 2005. Newport is a great place to visit!
A great value - a good choice!
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Spring Street Inn ... The rooms were lovely and very clean, the place is centrally located, wonderful service and (aaaaaah) the breakfast was to die for!!! Looked forward to breakfast every morning! Overall: a great value and highly recommended!
Quaint B+B close to everything
My wife and I had just been married and wanted a nice place to get away before going on our honeymoon. I decided to look into Newport because she loves victorian era mansions and homes. I had been to Newport previously and knew she would love the cliff walk, mansions and lighthouses. I found a listing for the Spring Street Inn and thought it would be perfect. Its a queen anne style victorian home. I booked the third floor suite with a balcony overlooking the bay and bridge. The place was fantastic!! It was immaculately clean, the view was lovely and our hosts were more than gracious. Upon checking in we were informed that fresh baked cookies, ice tea and lemonade would be available shortly in the common area on the second floor. Jack- what a breakfast!! I highly recommend the vanilla french toast while my wife thoroughly loved his ham and Vermont cheddar omelet. The Inn is within easy walking distance to downtown and most of the mansions. There is a small family owned bakery right down the street that provided wonderful brownies and cookies for a midafternoon snack!! We couldn't stop eating at the Brick Alley Pub downtown and the chowder at the Black Pearl was phenomenal!! The Spring Street Inn is tops in our book for our return trip to Newport!
This is a delightful B&B, made all the more so by its charming hosts.
The breakfasts were marvelous; platters of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice and hot muffins followed by the choice of a delicious hot entree prepared by the owner. The location was away from the congestion of downtown, but within walking distance of the gilded age mansions on Bellevue Avenue. We recommend it highly.

... only able to stay with them a few hours but we made plans to meet up with them and go sailing later in the week if it worked with them.
We then made our way to New Bedford, Massachusetts to meet our neighbor, Jan, who lived across the hall from us when we lived in Arlington, VA. He and his partner, Patrick bought an amazing Victorian mansion with a carriage house that was built in the 1860s. ...
... 1600's. Then we drove past lots of mansions along the way. Newport was where the Vanderbilts, Rockerfellers, etc. built their 'cottages' which were actually mansions! Had lunch at Black Pearl on the Harbor. Then walked along Cliff Walks behind the mansions. The ocean is so clear that you can see the rocks ...
... the eastern entrance to Fishers Island Sound and to warn mariners of a dangerous reef southwest of Watch Hill. President Thomas Jefferson signed an act to build the lighthouse in 1806 and construction was completed in 1807. The first lighthouse stood 35 feet tall. The next lighthouse, opened in 1856, stands 45 feet tall. The lighthouse was automated in 1986 and leased to the Watch Hill Light Keepers Association.
To get to ...
Caught the ferry back to Falmouth, picked up our car and drove 70 miles in an hour to Newport.
Woke up with sore heads and no hot water in the shower, super bad combo. It was 12.30 pm and way past check out, so we packed and bolted to the ferry without showering.
Thankfully the gods were on our side as there was a ferry leaving in 5 minutes so we made a run for it from the hotel. We made it just in time.
... to kimberlys office to get my bag that i had left with her. She had some free time so she drove me to the bus. Super nice!I jumped on the bus and headed for hartford! It was a bit of a journey, but trouble free none the less. Peter pan buses are still delivering the goods! When i arrived in Hartford, it was gettin dark. I assessed the safety factor of the 19th most dangerous place in America, and decided to walk to my new host's house. It was close and the streets were well ...
