Perfect location to the beach, which was just across the street. Every room has an ocean view. Staff is super friendly. Hotel is dog friendly and it was fun to see all the doggy guests's names on the chalkboard in the lobby! They even had a dog welcome package and a dog bed, which was excellent because we forgot Riley's bed. Looking forward to seeing the hotel after all the renovations have been completed.

The location was decent, good view, not right on the sand but across the street. Tons of barking dogs, the tub finish was rubbed off, overall dated, bad odor in the room, the room wasn't clean, the balcony was disgusting. People smoking right in front of their rooms with the door open. Lots of traffic outside the window and no ac or fan.

A little dirty and rooms were difficult to control temperature, hot and stuffy. There were no screens on the windows and sliding door so when we left the door open the room was cool but lots of bugs came in, when we closed the door the room was unbearably hot.

My husband and I have been staying at The Whaler for several years and it has always been amazing. It is a short walk to the beach and they are always very accommodating. We will definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Newport!

I will only choose to stay at this property while at the coast. It met all of our expectations.
We slept great and did not feel rushed with the later check out time. We were with in walking distances of great sites, beach, food and activvities.
