Nice place from which to explore Newport

4.8 on October 24, 2014

Lovely room, great service and a relaxing place to come back to each evening. The afternoon cookies with coffee and tea were yummy and enjoyed the wine and cheese on Saturday evening. Nice breakfast every morning. Great location for exploring everything, yet far enough from the main area to be quiet.


Comfortable!

My fiancee and I stayed at the Newport Blues Inn and absolutely loved it. It was quiet, clean, and very well decorated. The included breakfast was satisfactory, but nothing the praise or complain about.

Perfect get-away weekend

3.8 on October 02, 2014

The Newport Blues Inn was perfect for our weekend away in Newport. We were within walking distance to Thames St. and all the activity that is close by. The breakfast that is included is very good. The Inn was very clean and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

Jewel House review

3.0 on August 20, 2014

We stayed at the Jewel House in the Diamond Room. We have stayed there before and chose to again because we have enjoyed it. One problem was that the door did not lock. We could lock the lock but, we could just push the door open. We were only there for 2 nights so we did not want to take any of our weekend with having someone come to fix it possibly while we were in the room. There were also empty cans and plastic cups on the wall and in the garden which looked sloppy. Lastly, check out time was 11am on Sunday and no personnel were there to accept the keys and wish us on our way. These are certainly little things however, the little things mean a lot.


Great location!

Most B&Bs I've stayed in have fairly cramped rooms, but our room in Newport was huge! The staff was excellent, and the location was perfect for walking around Newport!
