We found a deal for this inn online and lucked out! The inn is right in the center of town and within walking distance to the more commercial wharf area. The inn was quiet and quaint and provided a great breakfast spread! The employees of the inn suggested places to go and what to see.

Boy, maybe we just got lucky, but I'm really surprised at the nagative reviews. I can only conclude that some people didn't understand that this is not a flashy Hyatt mega-business-hotel, it's far more personal than that. Like almost everybody says (even some of the negative reviews), the location could not be better -- we could literally throw a baseball...

Yes, it is an older, classic urban hotel; each room is different, so if you are fussy, ask to see room first. No elevator if that matters to you. Parking is convenient across the street (discounted by hotel with in/out so now you can walk to everything). Afternoon tea/goodies and breakfast are surely sufficient, but not home made. Wifi in...

If you are an Americas Cup fan, as I am, and expect an AC-themed inn, you will be sadly disappointed. I have no idea how they managed to get permission to use the Americas Cup in their name and logo, but this is a dark, cramped and ancient hotel. The room we stayed in was number 203. It was barely...

The trouble with leaving reviews sometimes is that you get to see those already written, and this can have an influence on your own if you're not careful. There are many slightly negative reviews that I've seen here and elsewhere for this Inn - but I'm going to try and remain unbiased. If you're the kind of person that likes...

I took my daughter on a girl weekend trip on Aug 09 & 10, 2014. The America's Cup Inn was an awesome place for us to stay. It is in a GREAT location, we never had to move our car! The room was spacious and the breakfast was outstanding! The staff was friendly and informative about the area. I'll stay...

We have been going to Newport for over 20 years. The hotels have become very pricey, but we always like to stay downtown. America's Cup Inn was perfect. Centrally located and you could walk to everything. The atmosphere was historic and homey. The rooms had character and were very clean. Free breakfast was delicious, with pancakes, prosciutto, fresh fruit, and...

Stayed in 2 room (with kitchen) pet-friendly apartment. Positives: really friendly, helpful staff; Overall very clean, spacious and cool, with room A/C. Great towels. Excellent location, near park and walking distance to bars and restaurants. Minuses: bed/pillows could do with an update; tub drain gets blocked. Guarunteed parking isn't a given if you arrive at a busy time; it's a...

This is an average B&B situated in the heart of Newport, Rhode Island. I stayed for a night in one of the rooms and I must say it was 'just ok'. The room size was comfortable and clean although it did have a dusty smell to it and the bathroom was a couple of steps up from camping. However let...

This was a perfect location for our first time in Newport. This is a small B&B within walking distance from everything. They had a continental breakfast in the morning made by the wonderful ladies in the kitchen. My boyfriend is very tall and had to duck in doorways, but this place didn't break the bank! Would definitely stay again!
