Historical Traveler Reviews Mill Street Inn Newport
Great Deal and a Great Location
We had people in from out of town and put them up in the Mill Street Inn. This place is a real find! Perfect location near downtown -- could walk to everywhere. The rooms are all suites and had plenty of room for 3 adults. Cool old mill building fully restored with sort of modern interior. Price was ok in summer -- I hear they are a real deal in winter offseason (around $100). The Mill Street Inn is definitely a great place to stay in Newport.
My husband and I stayed at the Mill Street end the weekend of October 1st. We had a deluxe room on the second floor. It was quite large with a separate livingroom. My only problem with the room is that they should have had a television in the bedroom. And the noise in the morning from housekeeping vacuuming upstairs was a little bothersome. They could have waited until a little later in the day. However, the staff was nice.
The location was close to Thames Street with restaurants and shopping. They have a continental breakfast on the roof, if the weather is nice otherwise the it's served in their breakfast room in the basement (a little stuffy). However, the view of the Newport Bridge from the roof is excellent in the evenings. We definitely plan to return again.
The Mill Street Inn is a wonderful place to stay. I had a wedding in Newport and had my guests stay there. The hotel management/staff was extremely accomodating. The Inn's location is perfect - central to Thames Street (all shops, restaurants, pubs) and a short walk (10 min) to Cliff Walk, 3 min drive to the beach. The rooms are very nice - unique even. I wouldn't call them the most romantic - no fireplaces, etc. But heck - if you're in Newport- the romance is outside. This is the BEST value in Newport.
Wonderful place to Stay
My wife and I celebrated our 11th anniversary in Newport at the beautiful Mill Street Inn. It was exceptionally clean, modern, and roomy. Location is perfect, within walking distance to the harbor, shopping, and the best restaurants. We purchased the mansion package, which was a very good price. Staff was very helpful, the breakfast on the roof was remarkable, and the view from the roof is spectacular. Our stay in Newport was extremely relaxing. Thank you Mill Street Inn for everything and will see you again in the future.
Stayed at the Mill Street Inn for a few days in August. The rooms were modern, spacious and very clean. The breakfast buffet was good and they served it on a deck on the roof that looks out at the harbor, which was neat. You couldn't beat the location, right in the middle of Newport, just a few blocks from the harbor. The staff, especially David at the front desk was very nice and helpful, they all were. Not a typical hotel, but we had a great time and hope to return.

Fine Small Hotel in a Great Location!
Recently stayed in this small gem of a hotel. All-suites gave us plenty of room and breakfast was served on the harbor-view roofdeck. Modern interior of an old historic mill building. Located near downtown in a relatively quiet residential neighborhood. On site parking was a big plus -- never touched the car all weekend. Nice, helpful staff too.
Never been treated so poorly at a hotel
I have never been so poorly treated at a hotel in my life.
There were cleaning materials left in my room when I checked in (at 8pm so clearly housekeeping wasn't planning on coming back). I returned them to the front desk, and got a cursory apology. The next day, after being out for 3 hours with the "please make up this room" sign on my door, I returned for a rest and the room wasn't cleaned. 10 minutes later I got a call from the front desk to the room and was told, in a very rude voice, that "housekeeping is waiting for you" to vacate the room so they could clean.
When my roommate and I were brushing our teeth we were told by the front desk that we were too loud (ummm, running water, anyone?). Their walls are incredibly thin and we could hear everything going on outside our room, which was fine with us, but not fine when they blamed us for making a minimum amount of conversation in our own room.
The short answer is I felt harassed by the staff from the moment I checked in, was mischarged in multiple ways, had originally had my reservation cancelled without my being told about it, and about a million other things that went wrong that should be considered general hotel management basics.
Oh, also, the towels are too small to wrap around a female who wears size 4-6 clothes.
Newport is a wonderful place, but stay elsewhere if you value being treated with a modicum of politeness.
Fabulous Contemporary Inn in Historic Shell
The rooms are super spacious, a large dining area, a comfortable living room with a large tv and a separate bedroom with bath. It had high ceilings and exposed brick walls. My husband and I went in early November 2003 and the room was $85.00 a night including breakfast (cereal, fruit, large muffins, croissant, bagels, juice and coffee). If you're looking for a period inn to enhance your historic experience, this isn't the place for you. But if you appreciate modern restoration (the lobby is fantastic), you'll be quite at home here. And the location is perfect. We left our car in the parking lot the entire long weekend and walked everywhere, including to the amazing cliff walk. The main street, Thames, is just one block down the hill! The staff was perfunctory, though accessible.

We woke this morning to winds blowing at 17 kts in the harbor with light rain. By 8 AM it calmed and the rain stopped in time for us to go ashore and have breakfast at the Cuttyhunk Fisherman Club. We were joined by our Wickford Point neighbors and the Sanfords on Black Jack. This is a fantastic local inn where the food is very good. So ...
... joined by friends from 2 other boats for pot luck dinner aboard Simone: chowder, strip steak, sword fish, and lobster rolls. I definitely need to get a walk in tomorrow once we get to our next port. This Island holds so many memories of good times shared with so many friends over the years. This evening's dinner will add to that long ...
Elyse was nervous but composed. She looked beautiful as she had a wonderful young lady named Elspeth doing her makeup and hair. Elyse danced well but regretfully out of 118 dancers, she was not recalled to dance her set. She was disappointed, but she's had a hard year after breaking her foot and then having a chest infection for 6 weeks. We were pleased that she held her own, pushed herself, and danced ...
Good morning Hadley Harbor! Day 2 of our first cruise of 2015. We left Wickford yesterday at 6:30AM to get an early start so we would get to Hadley Harbor in time to secure a moorning. We were successful in doing so and are moored near several friends. Last evening the party was on Simone. Grilled ...
... campsites of our trip, in a County park… very clean and grassy, with paved roads and shower/restroom a few meters away. The campground is maybe one fifth full, so there are no other occupied sites to be seen from this one. It is also the cheapest site we have ever had, at $20. We don’t have any hookups, nor wifi, so this posting will just have to grow longer and longer before you get it.
Our drive today was from the southern fork of the eastern ...
