My fiancé and I recently visited Newport, RI, for the first time. We are both graduate students who needed a long weekend away to relax, and the cost for hotels was a concern for us. We took a chance by staying at The Carriage House Inn because it was very affordable compared to other hotels in the area (Newport is,...

Great visit second time staying the rooms and main hall have been updated since our last stay the rooms seem much brighter. We traveled with a 3 month old baby the fridge was a must for milk ect. Clean rooms and the quick breakfast hit the spot. Very friendly staff. Will be back!

Total disappointment. I mistakenly believed reviews that talked about elegance and quaintness. Wrong. This is like a Days Inn in a old New England facade. (And I'm not complaining about price because that's a ripoff merely because everything is in Newport summertime.) Instead my disappointment stems from dirty hallway carpets, big white mystery stains on multiple curtains (so either they...

This was our fourth stay at this hotel in 6 years. Definitely one of the best deals in town. Only about a four minute drive to downtown Newport and the hotel offers shuttle service for $8 a person round-trip for people who don't want to drive. The hotel does have new hardwood flooring in since our last visit so the...

Quaint Hotel right outside Newport. But website said 2 queen beds. They were not queens. Full at best. I only stayed overnight so I was no big deal. It was a good price for the area. Cute Continental breakfast but I only took the coffee to go.

No elevator, wifi (both) down almost all weekend. Up for 15 min., down for hour, up for 15 min. Coffee maker had to be moved to a nightstand so...

This hotel is a joke. my husband and I came from Brazil to celebrate 24 years married. we choose in the this place from hotels.com. It looked nice in the photos and in the promises, but it the worst hotel that I have ever been. The hotel needs an extreme makeover. It is in very bad conservation. We stayed in...

Only 23 rooms in the hotel, the visitor gets a feeling of being appreciated. The continental breakfast from 7 until 10 is fantastic. And the 24hour coffee, tea or hot chocolate is great. Our 2nd floor unit was perfect for the three days spent in Newport. All of the concierges provided us with ideas to fill the days.
