Melville House, Newport
Excellent4.0 / 5
Great historic home
We were given an upgrade from double to queen. Room was quaint and comfortable. It was small but that is to be expected in a historic house. It was super clean. Didn't have much interaction with staff, but that we did, everyone was pleasant and helpful. Parking was a bonus and very convenient. We opted out of the full breakfast but were still offered continental, we grabbed coffee, but passed on the other items offered. Location was truly perfect. Walkable to almost anything. There was not air in our room, but there was a fan and surprisingly even though it was in the high 80s our room wasn't too hot. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice place in Newport
Excellent location to downtown. Breakfast was well worth the extra money. Was upgraded to a bigger room. Innkeeper was friendly.

Excellent4.0 / 5
When we arrived to check we were shown a room in another Inn down the street as multiple are owned by the same group. The accommodations were decent and fairly modern for a B&B in an older building. The location was ideal and easily walkable, right in the middle of downtown and easily accessible to the beach!

Lovely Inns
I do not like hotels, I like the homey feeling of an inn.This is our second stay with the Inns of Newport. We booked the Melville house but were upgraded to a lovely room in the Clarkson. We enjoy staying at this group of Inns because they are on a lovely street within easy walking distance of restaurants, shopping, sights, etc.. I have read negative reviews but I think it is because people are expecting hotel service at an inn. There is no valet, no "special services". I read one review that complained that no one offered her a drink when she arrived. If you are looking for people to wait on you, this is the wrong place to go. What you will get is a lovely, clean, period style room, a fabulous breakfast, and free downtown parking, the rest is up to you.
