We were pleasantly surprised by this cute place. The room was clean, stylish, and comfortable, and the proprietors couldn't have been nicer, going out of their way to fix a problem of my own making. This will be our go-to spot when we return to the Newport area.

We had a great stay at Rhea’s. Tony went out of his way to make our stay even better than expected. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the breakfast offerings are extensive. It’s nice to be out of the fray of Newport yet so close by.

Fantastic dinner at Rhea’s for our anniversary! While we are staying down the street, we have passed by several times before actually calling ahead for a reservation. They were able to accommodate us with limited notice. The stuffed mushrooms and rib apps were a great start and we transitioned to stuffed shrimp and surf and turf for dinner. Baked potatoes and corn for sides. Simple but perfect. They brought out an amazing cookie sandwich for an anniversary surprise. Barbara was our professional but fun server that really was the icing on our cookie sandwich! Can’t wait to return.

We stayed here July 14 - 16th 2020. It was our first time to Rhode Island and we picked the best place to stay. Tony was excellent to deal with. Every morning there was fresh coffee, bagels, cereal, fruit etc. He had every kind of granola bar to grab to take with you on your way out the door in the morning!! The fridge was stocked with cream cheese and even had french vanilla creamer stocked for your coffee along with orange juice. This was probably one of the cleanest places that I've ever stayed. Very close walk to the beach and he was very helpful with things to do for fun!! The bed was very comfortable as well as the pillow!! We will definitely go back here to stay anytime!!
