"Very nice room"
Great room, nice restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old establishment but close to downtown Newport"
I am pleasantly surprised on the location. It is an easy 5-7 mins drive down to all the restaurants and everything Newport has to offer. The inn rooms are a bit old but they are in the process in renovating. I saw new carpets being put down as we passed rooms on the way out. The renovation did not bothered us since we were out most of the day. The pool […] was pretty nice but cold at first. There is no microwave or refrigerator but they do have an ice machine. Overall, I saved $200 a night compared to staying downtown. Definitely a great place to stay at if you are visiting Newport and don't want to spend a lot on a bed.

"Has gone down-hill in one year's time"
Has changed drastically since last year. (Stayed here one year ago.) The maintenance has deteriorated. Bed was like a blow up mattress, tub had permanent black stains, desk chair wasn't safe to sit on with one leg crooked, and hallway carpeting smelled bad. Since I made the reservation, it changed from the Best Western to the Main Stay and I was never […] notified of the change. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Main Place to stay!"
The Mainstay was a great place. It is centrally located, near the harbor and main part of town. The room was good and the restuarant was great!!. I would recommend this to anyone going to Newport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It served it's purpose"
Not sure if it was hotels.com or Mainstay but I won't be back until I find out. It was clearly a room saved for the lower rate. The heat lamp in the bathroom was missing a knob so couldn't be turned on, although it was a smoking room the smell wasn't of smoke but was unpleasant and permeated my suitcase after only 12 hours! I had to wash everything […] when I got home. The staff was great and the bed comfortable, however. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very satisfied with the hotel very neat and clean ... We were near all local locations we needed to be near ... Staff were very friendly and the price was very reasonable ...I would highly reccomend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not overwhelmed, not underwhelmed"
This hotel just cuts it. Nothing great, nothing awful. We needed a hotel room that was under $500 a night in Newport during the summer. Took about 15 minutes to the Fort Adams parking area when there was no traffic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice room for the price. Not a great newport location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room smelled like mildew and I wasn't a fan of the location. However, the staff were kind and the hotel was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel has seen better days"
Hotel is no longer a Best Western and apparently in a transition period. Poorly maintained, furniture and carpet show their age. Nice and helpful staff, however. Suggestion to management: keep the staff, raise their salary and refurbish the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Liked the rooms!"
We were here to see the mansions, wharfs, cliffwalk, ect. of Newport. The rooms were great, nice and clean and roomy. The service was good, except they charge quite a bit extra per person per day to use the shuttle service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel and staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was good. I chose the Hotel due to its close proximity to the Naval Base.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel at a reasonable price."
Room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. It was simple and perfect. The rooms in newport this weekend were very expensive. This room was far more reasonable. I would stay there again. Cleanliness is the most important to me. This measured up.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel 2 miles from heart of Newport"
When we walked in, the receptionist must have had "Do a good deed" at the top of her to-do list. She offered us an upgrade from a standard double room to a suite with separate living room, 2 TVs, and a spacious bathroom with enough fresh towels for a small army. Later, she and others helpfully directed us to the heart of the action in Newport, just […] 5 minutes' drive away, and to the restaurant rated "Best Breakfast in Newport" for 10 years straight. The friendliness of the staff lifted our spirits and helped make our stay in Newport more enjoyable. A great value even without the upgrade, this hotel will always hold a special warm spot in our memories. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall great experience just watch out for the side sidewalk . In the low light of night can't tell that it all of a sudden just drops down 5 inches.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Does the trick for a decent price"
Cheap by Newport standards & not too out of the way. You still have to cab/drive to downtown/beaches because it's not in a pedestrian-friendly area. Hotel lobby/hallway areas are very outdated & kind of gross looking but the rooms aren't bad & pretty clean. Staff was friendly & security was attentive & effectively handled some rowdy guests. Overall […] I'd recommend it to anyone on a budget that's looking to stay right in Newport. Pretty barebones, but if you're in Newport in the summertime you're pretty much just looking for a place to get ready & crash. I'd stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad, about a mile from downtown Newport"
We went to Newport 4th of July weekend. The prices for Newport hotels right in downtown were outrageous. This hotel was more reasonable priced, and it still wasn't too far from the downtown area. The room was clean, and the staff was great. However, the other guests staying there were all younger and were pretty loud sometimes. It was an average hotel, […] but fine if you don't want to pay the downtown Newport prices. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A short drive to downtown shops/sights"
The only thing I have to complain about this hotel is the smell of smoke that lingered in the hallways and the room. Other than that, great place with a lovely staff. A short drive (5min) to the cute downtown shops.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Close to area we wanted to visit."
We needed to be moved from our room and the staff was very helpful and expedient about the move. It was a nice visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel; courteous staff"
We travel often and have stayed at many 5-star and economy class hotels over the years. That said, we had a wonderful time at this hotel. The staff was personable and the accommodations were great. The room was spacious, quiet and clean and included free parking, comfortable beds, wi-fi, refrigerator and microwave. The hotel restaurant/bar was lively […] and the food was good. Although the hotel is located a few miles from the downtown area, the short cab ride was well worth the money saved on staying at a higher priced hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to couples and those staying with children as it well worth the price. (A tip to those staying at the hotel, a cab ride is more affordable than the shuttle.)

"Good place to stay in Newport, RI"
The location was incredibly convenient; in a quiet neighborhood; friendly staff; easy check-in and out; restaurant on location for easy breakfast meal; nice outdoor pool and flowers. Downsides were minor: musty smell in the room unless air conditioning was on cold/high (we chose no AC, so noticed the must); also smelled of must and chlorine in the hallway; […] beds too soft.

"Great Stay! Family Friendly!"
The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Its only a short drive to the main attractions of newport ri. I hope they renew their contract soon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Serves it's purpose"
This hotel served our purpose in that it was very close to the Visitor's Center and the downtown area. The bed was very comfortable and there were lots of towels. The room was a good size and all in all quite comfortable. The staff as well was very good, patient, polite and knowledgeable. It was also fairly quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK but traffic leaving hotel tough"
The hotel was ok and the desk staff friendly, but when you leave the hotel it is tough to get through traffic. Hotel is by an on/off ramp and traffic keeps moving. I had to wait 5 minutes one time to get into traffic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for the Jamestown Half"
Clean hotel nicely situated near the shuttle pickup for race morning. The rooms are dark and the beds are too small. The windows actually open which is a plus. The room was very clean with in-room coffee. I asked for a later check out time and the staff was very accommodating. The service at the restaurant was excellent but the food was just average. […] The best part was the onion soup. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Accomadated, yet let down"
Im 20 and fortunately was accomadated which was great since i drove out for the july 4th weekend with my girlfriend, just make sure you arent under a sweet or a room where a lot of people will be walking or you will hear it ALL night as well as wooden beams creeking. Lastly, no card necessary for side and/or back enterances into the hotel so a complete […] stranger can come in unknowingly which is concerning for me especically with children.

Dated hotel. Dark hallways hote needs attention. Noisy doors needs updatingGenuine Expedia guest review
"convenient, wanted to see Newport in one night"
Very nice had a good time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would stay there again..."
The hotel is in a convenient location and very close to most of the attractions. There is only one elevator and it is located in the lobby. They need another one in the other end of the building. I would stay there again and I was very impressed with the onsite restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Run down looking"
Lethargic staff at front desk stayed seated the entire time we were checking in. Hallway carpets thread bare. No charm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the cost"
As soon as we got into the room there was a funky odour--a combination of pee and mildew. We opened the window and cranked up the A/C, hoping this would eliminate the stench. It was after 11 p.m. at night and, we all were very tired from the commute. We called the front desk and was told that there were no openings that night, but we could switch the […] next day. We were very uncomfortable being that the smell still lingered the next day and a member of our party was very sensitive to strong odours. In this room, the shower was broken--both the tap and shower head operated at the same time. While bathing we had to turn off the water every so often to allow the tub to drain. We checked out on day two and later on was able to switch rooms. The staff was very accommodating. The second room smelt a lot better. There was no complimentary breakfast, which was disappointing knowing that BW fits into a certain category. We spent $200 per night and the expectation was that the overall accommodations and comfortable would have been a lot better. We understand the proximity to downtown Newport, but we left feeling taken advantage of. Why do hotels use carpets!!! Why don't they do a better job at cleaning them?

"Best value in Newport."
Nice room. No elevator to upper floors. Good restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very basic no frills hotel"
Stayed at this hotel for convenience. It was a bit disappointing because first of all the hotel has no elevator and then the rooms are very dated. Beds are hard and room smells musty. Not a good experience .Genuine Expedia guest review
"bare bones hotel close to the highway"
The rooms are dated although clean. There was a stinky feet smell in the hall and rooms. The walls were paper thin and we were kept up until 2:00 am with rowdy neighbors. The on premis restaurant was good and convient. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you are flexible the price for a room is low.Genuine Expedia guest review
It wasn't to easy to find given there was no street sign as we came into Rhode Island. Staff at the restaurant were very friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed there when we visited Newport, RI. Easy trip into town. Shuttle price was kind of high, though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location and price"
Location and price made this our choice for our brief stay in Newport, RI. Exceptional staff at front desk. Knowledgeable and friendly. Also hotel offers shuttle ($8/pp) to travel into Newport tourist area. Room was OK. Clean, Freshly made up. Pool was nice, didn't go in water, but sat in the lounge chairs and read in the sun. On site restaurant was […] very very good. Excellent service, tasty, fresh, hot food. A hidden gem in the area. Location was easy to find, and convenient to local attractions.

"Nice, clean hotel!"
We stayed only one night, so is not much to say! The room was very large, and clean, big bathroom with lots of towels. I was very pleased with it! The hotel is good, if you want to stay away of the city noise and bars. The breakfast was excellent! I would stay there again! The price was good compared with the central located hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy room & convenient location"
The room was clean & comfy. Good restaurant on premises. The location was convenient to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NOT THAT BAD"
Yes, the hotel is dated. It's old and not as fancy. But for the money compared to the downtown hotels, you couldn't ask for more. It's OK, just OK. If you want fancy, spend your money somewhere else. If you want to save some cash, your looking at the right spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we saw the rooms and the clientele we chose not to stay and lost a considerable amount of money not to mentiom the hassle of finding another hotel at the last minute. We were directed to a back entrance with no elevators. The other guests coming in and out were drunk (early in the day) I would not recommend this hotel to anyoneGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel felt muted. The AC really didn't work well and room always felt stuffy. Experience was ok, about what to expect for what you pay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel which shows its age"
Greeting was great and personnel is very helpful in providing directions Bed is very good and room was clean But it is not a new hotel and it shows here and thereGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just a quick stay to visit the Cliff Walk."
Was looking for a nice place to stay so that we could do the Cliff Walk in the evening. The front desk attendants were very helpful from giving recommendations for a place for supper to directions to get to the Cliff Walk. Very knowledgeable and helpful. They knew about the construction that was going on and made sure that we knew how to get to the […] cliff walk by avoiding it along with tips of where to park. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
