Good place to stay with short drive to Newport downtown. There is a shuttle, but it was only running Friday and Saturday when we stayed (Sept). Clean, comfortable rooms (and beds). AC unit was suprisingly quiet and allowed simple adjustment of fan speed and temperature---much better than usual hotel ACs. Pretty good lighting over beds for reading. TV was quite small, but we did not use it.Fairly quiet room (stayed on second floor, so no experience with living below). I did hear some noises from next room, so probably depends on neighbors. Bathroom quite small, but OK and a second sink outside bathroom was nice touch. No elevator, so we had to schlep our luggage up the stairs. Convenient parking near rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast not great--usual continental fare--limited to cold food (unless you count toaster and waffle iron).
Pros: Comfortable beds, good location, reasonable price, easy parking, fairly modern rooms with great AC, staff friendly.
Cons: No elevator, mediocre breakfast

The hot tub was FILTHY. Dirt was actually bunched up in it. The breakfast was poor. The coffee was awful and the breakfast was pre packaged muffins and brownish bananas.
Pros: How quiet it was.
Cons: For the price it was more like a motel 6. It was dirty, the sheets had stains and the floor was dirty. Bot a place id go back to.

Pros: The TV in the room was next to impossible to control.What provider used, makes it so difficult to watch tv. Always switches back to pay channels, while. watching local channels. Was told by the desk t of hit up and down arrows to get back. Whatever.
Cons: See what I liked
