... Glen & Barbara a couple days before) and we were so happy they came to such a great show with an amazing crowd. After the show, we drove out to a pancake diner where we gorged on way too much food and laughed a lot.
The shows were remarkable and fun and the weather couldn't have been any better if we had tried. All in all, it was a lovely day and one of those moments that make you believe you could do this forever.
Good Monday morning
Up early and off the dock at 7:15am, a gorgeous sunny morning! flat calm seas, blue sky, no fog ...now this is cruising! Leaving Newport with no fog is beautiful strange when we came in Through the fog we saw nothing and there was lots to see. We have a long day of cruising today.
Ill upload a few pics from this morning.

... s Center to take the walking tour. We found out that it was free! Nice! As you know, the Underground Railroad was neither underground nor a railroad. It was about helping slaves who had escaped their masters to gain their freedom. You see, New Bedford was a Quaker town. The Quakers believed in the equality of all mankind, and they believed that enslaving another human being was unconscionable. So, there were numerous "safe" houses, ...
... that were all far too pricey for me. I did take shelter and spent 15 minutes at a time longingly looking at jewellery as the worst rain storms passed. It was still pouring down and showing no signs of easing up so that was it. I decided that as it was bucketing down I, being who I am, would take shelter in the finest of Newport mansions, the Breakers! It seemed only logical and so I set out with my black pack-a-mac, soggy jeans and trainers, hair in frizz and wet ray tails ...
... people's yachts off in a certain location so that they can travel there by other means and have the boat on arrival! I mean it kind of defeats the point of sailing but if you can afford a yacht, often more expensive than a second home, what's a few more thousand?! With the list Corrigan had sent me of spots to go to whilst in Portsmouth, I sat down with Melanie to figure out a plan of action. The forecast was fairly rubbish so as I didn't like what I saw I decided by to allow it to be a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Newport Beach Hotel & Suites
i stayed at the inn at newport beach for 1 night in april with my husband and 14 yr old. we checked in with a pleasant front desk clerk who asked if we wanted a 2 room suite for no extra charge! the hotel is old and slightly run down looking but fine. the suite was acceptable and we had an ocean view from both rooms. the morning continental breakfast was perfect. Some of the earlier complaints was that it is not right on the beach. this is true and you do have to walk across a road to get to the beach. it is on the outskirts of newport so the walk into town is a long one. We were looking at St. George's prep school and the closeness was perfect for us. It is near the mansions and would be a fine hotel if the price is right for you otherwise look for something in the heart of newport.
Let me first thank everyone for there candid reviews. I stayed at the Inn at Newport Beach this past weekend 2/18/05 - 2/21/05. The hotel as many other people pointed out, is not directly on the beach as the website picture suggests. It is located directly across from the beach on the north side of Memorial Highway. The Hotel is however the closest hotel to the beach in the Newport area from what I can sees I have been to Newport many times and stayed just about everywhere. This has included stays at the Marriott, Hotel Viking, Vanderbilt Hall, The Chandler Inn, and many other higher end hotels/inns as well. The following is my review of the hotel:
We spent Thanksgiving of 2004 here and thought the hotel was just fine. It was clean and well kept up, if a little worn around the edges. (The building is 60+ years old, after all!) We did request a different room due to a leaky shower in the first room we were given, and the front desk staff was very gracious and accomodating. The continental breakfast was also good, with plenty of variety and nothing stale as far as I could tell! The hotel was wonderfully quiet, even with a busy street right outside, and the beds were very comfy, too. (I slept like a rock all three nights we were there.) Also, I have dreadful dust and mold allergies and developed no symptoms at all staying there. It was a good "base of operations" for our sightseeing as it was very convenient to downtown Newport and the Bellevue Ave mansions, and the ocean was just steps away from the front door. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for someplace quiet and cozy, and we would happily stay there again.
I am planning another trip back to Newport for the weekend, and came across the reviews for this place. I stayed here the weekend before Christmas in 2003. It was not at all what I expected. The hotel is pictured as though it is beachfront...this is not the case! It is across from a very busy street, and then there is a public parking lot, and THEN the beach!
Worth the price
Well worth the money
If you like to spend more for three times the price you can go to the wharf and pay $20 just for parking.
The rooms have great views of the ocean across the street and it is great to have coffee in the morning.
A great place for runners.
You can go one block and pay $1,200 per night for a room if you like something more elegant.
The indifference and plain rudeness of the staff and management ruined a great weekend. Making it worse, they charged top dollar for what were clearly mediocre accomodations. Despite the clever photography on their publicity shot, the beach is actually across a busy street. Would never stay here again.
The Inn was not what I pictured (the website looks like you're right on the beach, but you're really across the street from Easton Beach (a small public beach) but the rooms were clean (a bit small) and the bathroom was very nice for the price we paid (which was fairly cheap compared to other hotels on the same dates). The staff was very nice, parking was free. The location was great, we had a view of the Cliff Walk and mansions from the inn and the ocean was right across the street. Bellevue Ave (mansions) was a 3 minute drive away and the wharf area was 5 minutes away. The free breakfast was bagels, muffins and instant cereal with juice and fresh fruit. If you're not spending a lot of time in the room, it serves it's function. If you're looking for romantic, you may want to choose a bed and breakfast.
Worst Stay I've Ever Had
During my stay, I had no hot water, a noisy, busy street-side room, and a stale continental breakfast. To top it all off, someone caught a mouse in the restaurant while I was eating breakfast one morning. I would NOT recommend staying here.
Excellent clean and great deal!
We have stayed many times at the Inn at Newport Beach. Between the Summer and Winter and Spring and Fall. The rooms are very clean and the staff are very helpful. The FREE contin. breakfast is very nice. You have your choice of many types of coffee, bagels muffins danish cereal hot or cold. Not sure why anyone would complain about it. On top of all this you can run down in the morning and grab anything and if you don't want to stay in the dining room you can bring it back to your room.
Newport Inn at the end of September
The Inn at Newport Beach was very nice but unfortunatley the free continental breakfast left a lot to be desired. i would stay here again but only after the summer rush.
