Wow - Beyond Expectations!

Posted 5-Dec-2014
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Newport Mansions, funky reasonable restaurants, beach
Talk about clean! This hotel is spotless. At first we thought it was a new hotel; nope, it has been owned and operated by the same family for 26 years. The pride in the hotel is evident in every way: friendly, responsive staff; lovely common areas, including hallways; beautiful rooms. Nice size indoor pool and hot tub. And the rooms? Mini-fridge and microwave -- and you'll think they created the room just for you it is so clean.. Only caveat, common to most hotels: the continental breakfast. No big whoop, but there is an Appleby's right next door that you may access from within the hotel. We've stayed a higher end hotels (Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott,etc) that weren't this nice. All that and a very reasonable price? Wow. We will definitely stay there again. Thanks, Howard Johnson.

We visit family in the area and this has been our go-to for an inexpensive hotel for many years. The building itself is somewhat dated, but the indoor pool is larger than most, and the rooms are always very clean with comfortable bedding. Breakfast is limited to fruit, muffins, juices, and coffee/tea, but the quality was good.

Nice visit to Newport

Posted 19-Nov-2014
Pros: Most everything
Cons: sound proofing
Location: Newport!!!
Everything was very good with one exception. The sound proofing was poor as a man next door snored during the night for a while and you could hear it all to well.

Good hotel for budget minded people

Posted 10-Nov-2014
Pros: Price was great and location was good. Swimming pool and hot tub were good too.
Cons: Pillows weren't very good and in-room refrigerator wasn't the cleanest inside.
Location: Downtown Newport, Mansion tours, fine dining.
We chose this hotel over a higher end one so that we could get a separate room for our teenage children. While nobody would confuse this hotel with the Four Seasons, it was fine for what it was. Less than two miles from the main Newport strip, and conveniently located near supermarket and drug stores. Front desk very helpful with maps, directions and dining suggestions.

Clean and comfortable

Posted 10-Nov-2014
Pros: Convenient place to stop near Newport. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
Cons: Wasn't wild about the heating/cooling in terms of keeping a steady temperature and dealing with the noise.
Location: Not really near anything scenic, only near conveniences such as a grocery store and a Starbucks and a few chain restaurants.
They were accommodating, and the rooms were much nicer than we expected. The heating/cooling was a bit noisy and cumbersome, but the accommodations were comfortable in all other respects.

First trip to Newport, RI

Posted 9-Nov-2014
Driving to Newport required crossing a toll bridge charging tolls both ways. A lovely town to visit. Nice room, good heat, unplugged the fridge for the night so we didn't hear it running, toilet made a slow drip sound- closed the bathroom door. Quiet outside at night.

Friendly staff

Posted 5-Nov-2014
Pros: Affordable rates and friendly nature of of the staff.
Cons: Updates, especially to the room's decor, would be nice. Quicker wifi speed and better strength.
Location: Pretty cool that Newport is so close.
Had a wonderful time. Front desk folks were very accommodating and helpful. Hopefully, we'll have the opportunity to return next summer.
