Fair for the price, but that's all A review of Shilo Inn - Newport
Pros=excellent views and location. helpful and friendly staff. clean rooms, albeit circa 1970 style.
Cons=phone rep stated recently remodeled and renovated, but if so, they must have a strange take on what renovation means. the room (admittedly clean) was an ecclectic collection of cheap 25 year old prints, dark laminated fake wood furniture which didn't match from piece to piece, and abhorrently ugly burgendy carpet. restaurant on site seemed run down as well, with furniture from the same time period as the room.
again, for the price (go to orbitz), the stay was fair, and no real complaints. but shilo inn's marketing tag line of "affordable excellence" should be changed to something a little more accurate, say something like just "affordable" period...definitely nothing "excellent" about this property, unless the nicest place you've ever stayed in was a best western.
