Short trip into Newport

Posted 7-Apr-2014
Pros: Nice pool and hot tub, good temps.
Cons: The walls are pretty thin, you can easily hear conversations in the next rooms over.
Location: There is a really nice 3-mile long cliff walk just a couple of miles away, as well as a tour of the area mansions, and outlets along the wharf.
We paid $67 for a Saturday night in a 2-queen bed room, cable, wifi, microwave, fridge, etc. within a 10-minute drive to downtown Newport. The room was clean (slight chemical smell upon arrival that didn't stick, probably due to pet-friendly nature of hotel), and pretty comfortable. My only complaint was that the thermostat was pretty inaccurate which meant the temperature was never quite right.

We like this hotel because it is near Sachuest NWR

Posted 15-Mar-2014
The reason we stay here is because we photograph birds on the weekend at Sachuest National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown, RI. After a long day of standing outside in the cold it was nice to be able to soak in a jacuzzi. The room was comfortable and I like that you have a desk and a couple of chairs.

We had to book our hotel last minute. We got a great price and the hotel was a lot nicer then we expected.

Howard Johnson's Newport RI

Posted 8-Feb-2014
Pros: Personal control of the room temperature
Cons: breakfast needs to be more than muffins and fruit
Location: Newport has incredible old mansions and of course, the waterfront.
I had not stayed in a HoJo in about 30 years. Was surprised that it is no better and no worse than any others. On this trip I specifically wanted a hot tub and breakfast. The hot tub was great; breakfast not so much.

Best value for the money in the Newport, RI Area

Posted 5-Jan-2014
Cons: Could use more counter space in the bathroom.
Location: Only 3-4 minutes to Newport from the HoJo. Movies complex 1-2 minutes away. House of Pancakes 1 minute away.
Women at the front desk were wonderful. Inn very clean & well maintained. Can walk straight through HoJo to the Applebee's next door. Has sauna, indoor pool & hot tub.
