"Not what I ecpected...."
We stayed in their "newly remodeled wing" that didn't even have wireless or wired internet. I had to go into a common area if I wanted to use the internet. Came late that night we needed a couple of extra pillows and they were all out. The next day we had housekeeping come in to tidy our room and they didn't even vacuum. The sheets had stains and so […] did the down comforters. The free continental breakfast was pretty good. They had a make your own waffles and scrambled eggs and ham. Which is more than what I expected for a continental breakfast. Oh, and their fitness center is a complete mess, not TV, or music not to mention any cardio machines such as a treadmill or elliptical or even a bike! It was in a converted conference room that was dirty and smelled musty. All they had were lots and lots of weight machines. Back stairs hadn't even been vacuumed in months. While they are part of the Hampton Inn family they certainly don't live up the Hampton name. They appear to be in the middle of renovations but no signs that say "please pardon our appearance” so everything looks like a mess. Not going back or recommending this place to anyone.

"Not too impressed"
Overall, our experience at the hotel was not terrible; however, I would not stay there again. There were small issues with the room, such as the awfully loud noise the shower made when being turned on, the broken jets in our jacuzzi, and the lack of "deluxe" when it came to the deluxe continental breakfast. It was also irritating to arrive back to our […] room one night and find that our keys did not open our door. Again, it was not the end of the world, but all these small annoyances added up. I must say the location of the hotel was excellent. We were very close to downtown Newport and plenty of great places to eat. The people who ran the front desk were very pleasant and helpful when we needed anything. All that being said, I will still probably look elsewhere when booking a room in Rhode Island the next time I go. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheaper than Newport"
As a decent cheaper alternative to Newport's expensive inns and upmarket hotels, this will do. Don't expect much from the staff but this hotel provides what it says it wil, but little more.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not so Newport"
We came on a very busy weekend. Check in was delayed due to the rooms not being ready, it took over 45 minutes to check in which made us miss our 6pm dinner reservation. The hotel smelled musty and was very loud. I booked 2 hotel rooms which were very expensive and was unsatisfied. The only good thing is that the shuttle service was helpful and the […] drivers were very nice. I would stay away from this hotel if you're looking to have a nice weekend away.

The door to the room was hard to open and close. The bathroom door handle was coming off the door. The carpet was filthy. The bed was semi comfortable. The indoor pool was nice but not very clean. The breakfast was ok, nothing real special. Location was nice and close to Newport and the beaches. Overall, the money spent on the room was not too bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Newport Inn and Whirlpool Suites"
Hotel needs to be updated. Had a musty smell to it and the pool area needs to be renovated as the roof had broken screens and windows. The whirlpools were not even working in the pool area. A great deal of TLC needs to be put into this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Happy :( OVERPRICED!!"
NOT HAPPY...OVERPRICED! My husband and I booked a room for our 1 year anniversary. We were very disapointed with the quality of the room. The pictures of the hotel did not accurately reflect the room in the least. A cheap comforter covered our uncomfortable king size bed with only 2 limp pillows. The iron in our room was busted and I got a mini shock […] when plugging it in! Upon checkout we weren't even asked how our stay was...my husband thought this was due to the fact that the hotel is clearly aware of the less than satisfactory quality of rooms they provide.

"Newport Inn & Whirlpool Suites"
It was fine. Only there one night. Great variety for breakfast. Front desk was helpful. Arrived after dark and checked out in a rainstorm. Hard to make a judgement on neighborhood, or maintenance of hotel. Fine on the inside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was disappointed with the hotel because there was a very peculiar odor in the hallway and our "nonsmoking" room smelled like smoke. I did not think the quality of the room warranted the high price . The coffee machine did not look clean and the light in the bathroom kept going out. There was a light on the smoke alarm that blinked throughout the night, […] keeping us awake. When we called the front desk we were told there was nothing they could do about it. We ended up having a sleepless night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The staff went out of their way to help us with requests. The breakfast was fresh and hot every day. The construction being done by our room never bothered us but it wasn't that attractive.

"Newport inn and whirpool suites-AWFUL"
There was a lot of false avertisment stated on website that lured me in on picking this hotel. Besides all that here is what we went thru in the two nights we stayed. The Sunday night we got there the A/C unit in the 1ST room was awful it gave out some warm air, then it started to let out water which caused a huge amount of water to fall on the floor, […] after a couple hours I informed the front desk and they stated they will do something about it., but nothing was done our first night there. The next morning I went back down to front desk to inform them what had happened the night prior and she then had maintenance check out the room and come to find out the A/C unit was completly frozen and needed to be replaced. Due to the run around with that room and the bad experience I had asked to be moved to another room. That night we got moved down the hall. The 2nd room was a bit nicer but again the A/C unit in that room did the same thing the first room did. I was not happy at all with that place and would never ever go there again nor recommend anybody since it was that bad. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the worst hotels ever"
The Newport Spa and Whirlpool Suites was one of the worst hotels I’ve ever stayed in. A quick summary of our problems: • The beds were very uncomfortable. They were old memory foam beds that sloped in the middle and made for very uncomfortable sleep. One of my travel partners chose sleeping on the floor because of the discomfort. • Noisy. The door rattled […] anytime someone walked by the room, it was very thin, and had gaps along it allowing all noise from other guests to carry into the room. We heard a hallway fight and the many groups of inebriated guests that came through the hallway between 2am and 4am • Dirty. Old coffee grounds in the coffee maker, stains on the wall, peeling wallpaper • Out dated: the door was difficult to close, the wall paper was peeling, and all the fixtures were very old (TV, faucet, toilet) • Staff: Not very friendly, especially for a hotel that depends on tourist season We choose the hotel based on other user reviews, their website, and Expedia’s information. We thought we had selected at least an average or better hotel. This was one of the worst I’ve ever visited and I do not recommend it, nor would I ever go back. There are 4 or 5 other hotels in the area, any of them are better than this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Newport Inn- way too much for not much"
I booked late on the Folk Festival weekend, so I paid way beyond what I would have paid for 2 nights at a hotel, but I decided I would splurge, and I paid far, far , more than I would ordinarily pay. If it wasworth the price, I would not have minded. IT WASN"T. First of all the, the sign at the entrance is lit up, BUT THE ROAD ISN"T!! So, I had trouble […] just finding out how to get in! I had the last room on a long hallway, as far from the desk as one could be, when I got to my room, I heard music coming from inside, I had to walk all the way back to the desk, and tell them that there was someone in my room. When I said there was music coming from it, they seemed like they knew what was going on, as if this had happened before.(It was 1 am by the way). The woman went back up with me , and went in the room, and turned off a radio. Inside the room, it was obvious, the floor had not been vacuumed. There were, what appeared to be, permanent stains in the toilet. The bedside light on one side had a broken switch, and could not be turned on. The breakfast was good, but there was hardly any fresh fruit. Only apples. In the summer? The breakfast room had no AC, and it was hot! I did like the fact that you could take ready packed ice bags from the freezer, though. The second night of my stay I couldn't unlock my door, because, as it was explained to me, I put the card in too fast! I walked all the way back to the desk, TWICE, to find this out! THey had a barbeque outside, that night ,that they said would be over at 7; when I got there at 6:50, the food had not been cooked yet! I was told I would have to wait, and, to eat the "munchies"(a bowl of broken potatoe chips.), while I waited. Sat. night I used the back entrance, which was right outside of my door. It was not locked! This hotel offers nothing more than a Motel 6, and isn't as safe, or as clean. I was ready to pay a high price, because I knew it was a busy weekend, but this was robbery.

"I don't want to take my shoes off"
I am glad my mother and I waited until after the festival to check in to this hotel or else we would have been dreading our return had we checked in earlier. First of all, no computers at this hotel, I mean to say that their filing system was just that, a paper filing system. Okay, I can deal with that, they seemed to find our reservation pretty quickly. […] We get to our room which was a non-smoking room, and we realize it was surrounded by three other smoking rooms. What sense does this make? The room was dark and reeked of old stale cigarettes. It was one of those rooms where you didn't want to take your shoes off. Naturally my mother would not tolerate these accommodations and I was happy to agree. I asked if there were any other rooms available and they were happy to and quick to accommodate. They had another space for us that was "new", as in just painted. I feel it was a lateral move from cigarettes to paint but it was more tolerable. Clearly this hotel was top of the line in 1978 but time did not to it any favors. It appeared as if it started undergoing renovations then management realized it was the season for tourism and haphazardly threw rooms back together. The second room didn't have a functioning telephone or a trash can, ohh the simple pleasures. Mismatched furniture and oddly situated at that, our mini fridge was missing the table by one corner and so was wobbly. All things you can tolerate but would rather not when your paying way too much to begin with. I will never go there again, although the women at the desk were nice enough, and it provided an interested story for my mother daughter weekend. It is sad to see people pay for more than what they get or expect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is very deceiving - it is NOT a spa at all. There is nothing luxurious about this hotel.. it is a motel - that is dark and divey.Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed here two times. This one was better. The name is deceiving, if you are looking for a luxory hotel. It is nice and has been updated since my last stay. But is no means luxory even tho some rooms have a whirlpool in them. This time I had a memory foam bed which was nice and the room was big. Last time my room was smaller. It is always pretty […] clean. The staff is small and friendly (a little weird- they hang out around the hotel and they built a bon fire outside in the garden in the front). There is a shuttle or town car or limo that will take you to the Red Parrett in downtown Newport for $5 each way (it was $2 last time I was there). But it worked out great. It is not too far from Newport (maybe 10 min). It is alittle bit of a strange place, but I would def go again. I would recommend it if you plan on not being in the hotel very much.

"A little dated but OK for a night in town"
Staff were friendly. The hotel is about 10 minutes from town. They have a shuttle that runs into town until 2 am for five bucks which is convenient. Unfortunately the room we stayed in 118 stank like garbage. The corridor did as well. We requested a different room but the hotel was full. The smell was manageable as long as we kept the AC on. The remote […] for the TV did not work also. On a positive note I like the common area out front with the fireplace and wood chairs. Nice in the evening while waiting for the shuttle into town.

"Don't be scared by reviews"
I was concerned about staying at this hotel as some of the reviews were less than favorable but i was very pleased with this hotel. There is an area of the hotel that is undergoing renovation but you the renovations are not a disturbance. The room we stayed in had dated bedspreads but it was very comfortable and the beds were extremely comfortable. […] It was nice to have a refrigerator in the room as well. DO NOT book this hotel if you are looking to stay just for the pool. We went down to the pool and it had quite a few leaves in it and really needed to be skimmed clean. I was surprised since it was an indoor pool. We did not go in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Please make another choice!!"
Upon entering the hotel, the first thing we noticed was a very unpleasant odor in the lobby and the breakfast room. To make things worse, our room, which certainly was not an economy booking, had a stained and torn couch in it. We wondered why it just wasn't thrown away as it really was offensively dirty. When we returned from the beach late afternoon […] the next day, our room had not been cleaned. When we called the front desk to report this, we were told the housekeeping staff had left for the day. Rather than receiving an apology, we were told that they "would make a note of it." We were excited about the waffles on the breakfast buffet. Midway through our breakfast, the waffle iron disappeared. When we asked about this, we were told it had broken and they were waiting for a replacement. A dead fruit fly in the ice water pitcher sealed the deal. We will never return again. If we were offered a free room, we would not take it. It was the most unpleasant hotel experience we have ever had in our lives. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Newport Inn and Whirlpool Suites - Great Shuttle"
I read other reviews about the Newport Inn and Whirlpool Suites some which extremely negative and some extremely positive. We were in Newport for two nights and spent the second night at the Newport Inn and Whirlpool Suites. Overall, it was a decent experience. Sure, the building is in need of an update, but I didn't see anything that would indicate […] that the facility was dirty or that it was an unsafe place to stay. The front desk personnel were friendly, showed us where the ice was since their other ice machine was broken, and explained the continental breakfast for the morning. Our room was clean, the carpet was clearly new, the beds were temperpedic which is great for some and not others. The furnishings did not match and the comforters were dated, but all were clean. The room did have a small microwave and a refridgerator. The best feature of this hotel is its shuttle which runs until 2 a.m. to and from downtown Newport for $5 per person. This was a great feature as we had spent the previous night roaming the streets of downtown Newport to find an available taxi. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to those looking for a place to return to after a day at the beach to refresh and then head to downtown Newport for the evening. If you're looking for high-end amenities or to spend a significant amount of time in your hotel room, then I would recommend you find another location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"While the hotel was comfortable...."
The cleaning staff of the Newport Inn and Whirlpool Suites need to be jacked-up. There were pieces of potato chips on one of the two beds in the room, as if someone decided to take their afternoon break there while watching TV. Also while the room was comfortable, it was not well maintained or cleaned. I have a problem with wanting to stay there because […] of the lack of cleanliness, but the rest of the hotel made up for it with excellent service and amenities. Also, I had Air conditioning in my room but the hallways appeared not to have any central AC and smelled of mildew. Also the ICE machines were ALL broke, but the front desk had a massive cooler with bags of ICE to make up for the problems with the ICE machines. They even offered free ICE Cream bars to guests to make up for the ICE Machine problems. The Complimentary breakfast was well done too. And that weekend the hotel offered a complimentary BBQ to hotel guests. I did not have time to sign up for a spa treatment, but if I return to that hotel someday, I hope to get one. Very Reasonable pricing for rooms and for the spa treatments. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very affordable choice for Newport"
If you don't want to spend around $500 a night for a room in Newport this is a great choice. There is a five dollar shuttle that brings you right to the center of town from 5 pm till 3 am and is always on call. Jacuzzi and tempurpedic bed for the price can't be beat.

"Not spa-like at all"
The hotel was not at all what I expected for the price. At check-in they told me they upgraded me to a nicer suite with a jacuzzi, but the jacuzzi jets did not work! The room appeared clean but the bedspread had holes in it and was not luxurious at all. The breakfast was pop-tarts and toast. Main lobby smelled funky and the ceiling over the pool was […] filthy.

"Newport Spa and Whirlpool Suites"
First, we arrived and were greeted by a nice woman. She was the only good thing about the stay, and recommended a nice place that we had dinner at. However, she sent us to a room that was already occupied. Luckily the man we walked in on was nice enough about it. Once we got to our "suite" we found what looked like an old motel room with tiles falling […] off, a toilet that wouldn't flush and a shower with no water pressure. Apparantly it was called a suite because there was an opening to a small space with a refridgerator and a "whirlpool." The whirlpool was a tiny tub that barely fit two people. The jets were on the bottom of the tub which was very uncomfortable, and the water would not get very hot. The pillows on the bed were flat and very uncomfortable. Checkout time was 11, but housekeeping was banging on the door a little bit past 10 trying to get in. So, basically I paid a lot of money for what I thought was a nice hotel where I could sit and relax in a private whirlpool and was very sorely dissapointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
