Visited this Inn a few weeks ago, location is great, very central and quiet, with free parking. Our room was charming but very small, with no space to hang or store our jackets or any item of clothing. Breakfast was a bit cramped, served in a tiny room, with subpar coffee and no selection of cold cereals or fresh fruits....

This is our third time staying at one of "The Inns of Newport". We have stayed previously at The Cleveland House, but upon arriving today were told by the proprietor that the room we requested would be noisy due to some renovation. He offered us an upgraded room across the street at The Clarkeson. The home is historic and tastefully...

My family and I stayed here after Christmas and had a wonderful time. This place is within walking distance of most things in the downtown/warf area. Rick was a great host and was very accommodating. My family rented the suite on the 3rd floor as well as another bedroom on the same floor. Both rooms were very clean and well...

Me and my boyfriend came for New Year's Eve and to spend a few days in the town. We picked this location on a Groupon deal and it was my first time there so I was pretty excited. From the first minute we checked in the owner was overly accommodating to us, changed our room to a nice one, gave...

Stayed here for one night on September 26 2015. The tariff was beyond what we thought the accommodation was worth. In excess of $445 for a basic room albeit with full breakfast. Admittedly the support staff were very good but we felt that we paid more than what should be expected for this location

Dear Guest, We do understand your question about room rates. The weekend you stayed was during the Newport Food & Wine show, a very busy weekend in Newport. While we charged rates ranging from $229-$339 for a 2 night stay during the weekend, you chose to stay for Saturday night only. In comparison, the two main hotels in town were...

Upon arriving to Clarke Street, I found the street to be full of the most quintessential charm you would find in Old New England. There are four b & b buildings on Clarke Street that are run by The Inns of Newport which are very, very old. For the age of these buildings, they are very well kept. The street...

We discovered the Clarkeson--otherwise known as one of three "Inns at Newport"--via Groupon. The inns are located on a picturesque Newport street blocks from the bay. During our stay, we were the only guests in the entire house! Here's what we know: Excellent location, affordable price, parking available (at least during off season! Small lot behind building), comfortable bed, Colonial...

Breakfast is basic but good, made fresh to order in a cozy dining room. Rooms were basic but pretty. No iron or hair dryer etc. Heating was very hot on the first night (controlled from another room) but we mentioned it and it was adjusted for the second day. Including breakfast this seemed reasonably good value and I would recommend...
