As Newport accommodations can be rather expensive during the summer months, the Chart House seemed to be a great value without sacrificing location. We were not disappointed. The host was very pleasant and welcoming and we were pleased with the free parking area and the really nice surrounding neighborhood. The room/suite was very comfortable and pleasant with its own bathroom,... More

I recently booked this property for my daughter’s wedding in Newport. We were there for 6 days and Margaret was very accommodating and helpful in all aspects. We needed a "home" that could house both families, with "lots" of children including an infant and the Chart House Inn fit our bill. If there was one inconvenience it would be the... More

Clean, quiet, and affordable with an unbeatably convenient location, walking distance to restaurants and shops on Thames Street, the warfs, even a gas station right around the corner. The innkeeper Margaret was friendly and accommodating. Adorably decorated. Would confidently recommend it to anyone!

Thank you Helena for your comments. I strive to provide a comfortable and casual atmosphere for everyone at the inn. Many guests do not realize we are open year round and are a pet-friendly inn. We have just finished refurbishing Room 1 and the private bath this winter. The walls have been re-painted and the bath re-decorated into a nautical... More

We did book this Inn last minute whilst we were driving to Cape Cod - it was a beautiful April weekend and so accommodation was scarce. The only room left was the suite and it wasn't ready for someone to sleep in when we arrived which is fair enough. However, even after it had been "cleaned" it wasn't really up... More

My fiance (now husband) and I stayed at the Chart House Inn over Memorial Day weekend this year. Had a great stay! The accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the location couldn't be beat! The Inn Keeper was lovely - very friendly and made us feel like we were at home.

The location of the Chart House Inn is excellent, within short walking distance to the main parts of town. The innkeeper was very friendly and accommodating to our little dog.

Booked this Inn for 2 nights. Rooms small and basic. Unpleasant smell in one room. Building in poor condition. Some areas of Inn unkept and dirty. We were mislead by good reviews which did not match our experience.
