The whaler was a great location in Newport! Close to the beach, nice pool & hot tub & workout room! Family friendly setting and had a nice but small continental breakfast. The rooms need updating but were clean and comfortable.

This was the least expensive oven front hotel I could find in Newport. At half the cost of Hallmark, it was well worth the price. You do have to cross the street to get to the beach, but the trail to go down is right...More

You can enjoy the ocean from the room. We opened the seaside sliding doors immediately to take in the breeze. It had rained before we got there so the air was fresh and cool and as night came on you could hear the sea.
