“Well worth the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

My wife and I stayed here recently for a quick weekend getaway and all I can say is ...WOW! The room was very clean and quiet. (#1 priority for me) The breakfast was excellent and the Inn keeper was so nice and accommodating. It really added that something special you don't get at a brand name hotel for sure! We had such a great time staying here that we will definitely be coming back with our friends!!! I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a clean and quiet place at a awesome price! Oh and it is located right in the middle of everything too!

We stayed one night at this Inn and will never return. The outside appearance is awful, the awnings are falling apart, the windows are rickety and very noisy. It happened to be a windy night and all we heard was the sound of the windows vibrating. Also the walls and floors are thin so as to hear all the other visitors coming and going - not relaxing at all. There was no extra tissue paper in the bathroom, very little kleenex left in the box, no water pressure to wash your hair, dead flowers left in the window boxes; it was terrible. This place needs a good over-haul and alot more attention to detail. The price they get for this place is rediculous - the only good thing is the location.

Room Tip: my tip is to not stay here.

We apologize for your noisy night in our Inn. Unfortunately, that windstorm damaged our awnings. We have ordered replacements. As you will see from our other reviews, most people have had very good experiences with us. We hope you will give us another try in the near future.

We recently stayed here for a wedding and had a very nice stay. The location of this hotel is ideal and it is in walking distance of the main strip of restaurants and bars near the water. This B&B is charming and has a nice porch and backyard area to hang out in. The rooms were spacious and on the third floor it had a great living room - hangout area for those staying in a large group which was ideal. The beds were comfy as well. My only negative review was the breakfast. They didn't use real bacon (microwavable bacon yuck) and for the price we paid I expected the food to be much better considering it was a bed and breakfast. If this place improved upon the breakfast situation I would definately stay here again.

A group of us in town for a function stayed at Newport Blues Inn and it's sister property, the Blue Jewel. Everyone enjoyed their rooms and we all met at Newport Blues Inn for a delicious breakfast in the AM. Rooms are spacious and clean. Great beds and all the creature comforts one would expect in a B&B. Staff is very friendly.

I was here a few months ago and had the same great experience. We will all be back!

My second stay at this group of three inn's right in the heart of Newport. Walking distance to the clubs and shops. I will be back again next time I am in town. The beds and linens are divine. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The rooms are very clean and include off street parking.

Room Tip: It's hard to pick! Last time I stayed at the Blue Jewel and loved it there. This time the Newpor...

We stayed in the Blue Jewel Inn- Emerald Suite. The suite was very nice (better than picture), sitting room, bedroom with king bed, large bathroom. We had parking behind inn. Breakfast was served at the Black Duck Inn 2 doors down, fruit, vegetable quiche, french toast, coffee, juices. We enjoyed our stay everything was within waliking distance. Would stay again.

We stayed at NBI on September 10 to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Beautiful weather, so we walked everywhere from the Inn. We did not need our car at all, but we had already seen most of the newport sights. Our "harbor" room was very clean and comfortable, except for a broken shade on the large bay window facing the street. We called as soon as we checked in and then again later that evening, but no one ever came to fix the shade... We used hair clips to fasten things so we'd have privacy and no morning light and It worked ! We took advantage of the Inn's wine and cheese hour as we sat in rocking chairs on the porch of the Blue Jewel Inn and talked to people walking by. All staff were friendly and made great recommendations. Emma was especially pleasant, and made us feel so welcome. We also used the complimentary passes to Newport blues Cafe to walk down and listen to live music.. It was so fun! Morning breakfast at the Inn was a treat.. We met other nice people.. But also saw someone come down to get a "to go" tray for breakfast in bed. May do that next time!
