Avoid at all costs
This is the dingiest, most over-priced flea bag of a hotel I have ever stayed at. In checking in, we were given an occupied room. I still feel dirty from staying there. The service was awful, we were overcharged... I can't warn anyone enough not to stay there...
Grossest Hotel I have ever stayed at
This hotel was the worst place I have ever stayed at. I felt like I was at the Bates motel and felt dirty just sleeping in the bed and showering. I don't know how they can charge $200 a night and actually require a 2 night minimum. This place should be shut down by the board of health as it's probably as unsanitary as a public restroom at a rest stop.
Also, make sure you double bolt your door as they gave us a key to an occupied room where peoples stuff was everywhere.
Warning!!!! Don not stay here!!!!
My husband and I needed a hotel in Newport, RI for one night and this was the only hotel we could find that did not have a 2 night minimum stay, and you know why???? Because no one in their right mind would ever stay there 2 nights! They have some nerve calling it a Resort, This place is a DUMP!!! This hotel was by far the most disgusting hotel I have ever set foot in. First of all they didn't have a king size bed for us, so we took two double beds. When we got to the room it was tiny! The bathroom was so small you couldn't even shut the door without stepping into the tub. The carpet was so stained and gross that we wouldn't dare take our socks off. I don't even want to tell you what nasty stains I think were on the floor. Also the room looked liked it hadn't been cleaned by housekeeping in at least 6 months. There was dust and hair and crumbs in every corner and it was so dirty. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall and there were water stains on the wall and in the bathroom there was paper stuffed into the sprinkle. The room was also so dark. The closet was a rack that held 2 suits. I had to iron something so I pulled off the iron and it was totally broken and the plug was cut off the cord. The shower pressure was terrible and when my husband dried his hair the dryer blew out.
The staff was rude and thought the gross conditions were perfectly fine and blamed it on the renovations. Recommendation for the hotel. Close and reopen when renovations are completed!
Thank goodness we only stayed there one night. And to top it off they have the nerve to charge $199 plus tax!!!!!
Do not stay there!!!
Hotel is currently receiving a make over. We stayed last year when it was the Ramada. Wing we stayed in had a little musty smell, but other then that the accomadations were good. If you are expecting fancy this isn't your place. It is great for a family stay. Away from the "mess" of Newport, many restaurants, and stores nearby. The kids LOVED the pool (which is open 24 hrs) and also indoor and heated. I believe this hotel will be GREAT once it has finished the renovating.
Possibly the most unpleasant hotel I've ever stayed in.. small, dark and dingy rooms with tiny windows and poor lighting. Dirt and filth everywhere due to renovations, a cracked and decaying toilet seat (urghh!), no plug in the sink, a tiny bathroom and most inexcusable of all - unhelpful and disinterested staff. The swimming pool resembled a public health hazard, as did the pathetic excuse for a breakfast bar with paper cups and plates, bits of food and un-cleared debris strewn everywhere from the early-risers. This place may be a lot nicer when the renovations are complete, but is definitely one to avoid until then.
Well here is another disturbing story about this place. I have not stayed at the hotel but have had an unplease experience wiht reservations.I booked a room through the Ramada website this August for an upcoming wedding at a good rate (about $100 per night). Figured if the rate was good the we could deal with the bad reviews ( look at the reviews under Ramada Newport Inn, it's old name- pretty bad). A family member called to confirm only to find that " our reservations did not exist" and that " you cann't get a room for that in Newport". They then offered a much higher rate. I forwarded the confirmation which meant nothing to them. It appears they simple do not want to honor the lower rate. Based on the previous post as well I would be VERY HESITANT to do any business with this property due to a critical lack of honesty. BEWARE!
I went to stay at the Newport Spa & found the staff was very accommodating. They have a spa right at the hotel and the hotel is under major renovations. I was told they are putting in over 100 jacuzzis by May 1st. the breakfast buffet was very good and the price was right. The pool is like being in a jacuzzi. I would recommend this place in the future. Read other reviews and cant believe they were at the same hotel I was at.
Never Book A Single Night At This Hotel!!
My husband and I decided that we needed a getaway for the weekend. We booked a one night stay. If was unfortune that the same day that the booking was made, I took ill and had to go to the hospital. That same day we cancelled the booking. We received an e-mail within minutes back from ---- stating that our cancellation was forwarded to the hotel and was given an confirmation #. According to the hotel, they never received any notification and therefore charged us with a no show fee. After explaining to the hotel manager what happened,why we cancelled and also faxing the cancel confirmation e-mail. The hotel manager could care less and still charged us for the room not being used.
So, think twice before booking this hotel. Because god for bid you have an emergency and cannot go, you will be charged a large fee! BEWARE OF THIS HOTEL'S POLICY!!! THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THERE CUSTOMERS!
Steer clear of this hotel!
My family spent one horrible night at the "Newport Inn & Spa" (formerly the Ramada Inn) on July 8, 2005. When we were waiting in line to check in, a customer was walking out saying "Don't stay here, it is a dump and it smells like pot". We should have walked right out! The rooms are dark & musty. The bathrooms are built for very small children. The carpeting is stained. The "view" from the window overlooks a gap of 2 feet to another window. In the space between the two windows, there is garbage on the floor. The hotels website is very deceiving. There is no "Spa" and the pictures on the website do not look at all like what you will get. Had we not been spending only one night there, we would have left. Definately NOT worth the price or ANY price! Following morning we all ate at the Hotel Breakfast Buffet, and all felt ill on the way home. Avoid this place at all costs!

I am officially a leaf peeper! That is somebody who travels around just to look at the autumn leaves. And they have been fairly spectacular,although not quite at their peek. They have web sites dedicated to the changing of the leaves and it all depends on the weather. They have had a mild autumn so far, so the leaves are a little late
Drove out to Cape Porpoise for a forgettable breakfast at Wayfarers Inn. Reviewed very positively on Trip Advisor by people on drugs, we cleared up that misconception very quickly. We reluctantly checked out of the Kennebunkport Inn, and hightailed it to Newport by the shortest possible route, Louise waving off any thoughts of going north first to visit the LL Bean store. As it was, our GPS drove us into the heart of Boston, and directed us back and forth through the tunnel enough times that ...

... 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.
