My immediate family rented 3 rooms over Memorial Day Weekend. S2, S3 and 1 night at S1 (down by end of wharf). S2 and S3 are very close to each other, only seperated by an indoor stairway. We rented both and it was perfect for us. Keep in mind, with 5 bedrooms, there are only 2 bathroom, but we are a close family, so it worked for us. Bathrooms have all the normal amenities, towels, soaps, shampoos, hair dryer, etc... Kelly and Wendi were amazing hosts! The location is perfection, right on Bannisters Wharf, walk out into the middle of everything. Price wise it was also the best deal for so many people. We would of easily paid triple the price at a nearby hotel. We will definitely come back to stay here. Nothing luxurious, but, perfect for what we needed and for what we were in town for. Thank you so much Kelly and Wendi!

Room Tip: If you want a view of the water choose S1 or S4.

My fiancé and I stayed at Bannister's Wharf Guest Rooms for two nights in mid-April. We love Newport and have had great experiences at other nearby hotels so we were looking forward to trying this place. We were excited about these rooms since the location looked great. Turns out, the location was the only positive attribute. As many of the other reviews stated, checking in was a nightmare. We couldn't find the office and the parking was down a narrow little street that basically looked like a sidewalk, it was extremely hard to navigate. Once inside, the rooms seemed a little outdated but we let it slide since it seemed kind of cozy. That feeling soon went out the door when we realized there were ants all over the place. To make matters worse, the water (which the person at the front desk warned us would take 5 minutes to heat up) turned completely brown while showering. The rooms have a nice little deck overlooking the water however the deck is shared with the other rooms and there are only 4 chairs. Also, the pier below the deck is crawling with tourists so it's not very private at all. I can definitely see how it would be noisy in the summer. Bottom line is, the room was disgusting, extremely outdated and a horrible experience overall. We'll definitely never stay there again and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else either.

We are very sorry to hear that your stay was not enjoyable. Our location is indeed unique, quaint and historic - we apologize that it was difficult to navigate your car to find parking on the wharf as it is a tight fit. Newport is definitely a hot spot with tourists and locals alike and we admit, we have many visitors walking the dock to enjoy the water view and it can be noisy. We take pride in our historic guestroom location and consider all comments very seriously, thank you for your review and we will make every effort to make future stays with all customers enjoyable. Last summer we refurbished our rooms with new Pottery Barn bed linens and furniture - it's beachy and rustic and I hope it's not outdated yet. Very Sincerely, Bannister's Wharf Guestrooms

Visited on a snowy weekend. Arrived early to beat the storm. Had brunch at Clarke Cooke House and our keys to the room were brought to our table. Clean room, nautical styling, right on the harbor. I bundled up and sat on the patio overlooking the water. It was great. No boats, no outdoor restaurants open, no shoppers walking around. Very peaceful. Judging from the pictures I have seen in the summertime, I don't know if I would have liked it so much. It looks noisy and crowded, but I might try!

Room Tip: Room 4 is great

Murf57, thank you for your review! So glad you enjoyed Bannister's on a lovely winter weekend. It's indeed a gem and offers a unique, quintessential Newport experience. It is busy during summer but the view from the marina of the yachts is amazing. Again, thank you and hope to see you all again soon! Very sincerely, management

We just spent an overnight stay at Bannisters Wharf guestrooms in January. The only issue was finding out how to check in, which turned out to be a restaurant in walking distance. The room was was very clean and nicely decorated. The room was actually on the wharf! you open up your door and the water was right there! A truly unique experience! There are a lot of little shops and restaurants to walk to. Parking was a bit of a challenge, but there are parking lots in the area! I loved our overnight stay, I am sure it must be spectacular in the summer!

Room Tip: we found this on groupon and got a very good deal.
