Our son and daughter-in-law got a 2 night stay at the Black Duck for us for Christmas. They had wanted us to stay in one of the sister properties farther up the street, away from the activity near the wharves downtown, and with decor they thought more to our suiting. We chose the Black Duck (very modern decor) because it...

Room: Free upgrade for some reason, which was certainly welcome and kind. Very comfortable bed, TV the size of a laptop (what's the point?), tub in the bedroom not the bathroom makes for a strange arrangement, good shower. Location: Very convenient but the house next door is a rental and they had a loud and long party. We had to...

My boyfriend and I had booked our trip to stay at the Newport Blues Inn, but upon our arrival, we were told that our room was upgraded to one of the suites at Black Duck Inn. The accommodations were amazing (king bed, gas fireplace, and a Jacuzzi tub!) and the service was friendly and nice. Our breakfast was delicious both...

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the Black Duck Inn. Initially we were checked into The Champagne Room but upon entering we noticed the bathroom rug was saturated. The staff immediately had us switch to the Meritage Room which was much nicer. Joyce prepared a hot breakfast the first morning and left us peanut...

Our room was upgraded when we arrived. We were given a box of candy and our room was very nice. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was delicious and abundant. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at the blues inn. Breakfast & check-in was great. The ladies were so helpful & friendly. We requested a room in the black duck but one was not available. During our stay we found out that there was a room cancellation next to our friends in the black duck and we could have stayed with them :( Bathroom...

Thank you for your review. We hate it too when bathrooms don't have fans! The day after you called it to our attention it was repaired. We hope to see you again.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Black Duck Inn in the Champagne Suite and could not be happier with our experience. Room was immaculate and the service was friendly but not in your way. Monique made a delicious breakfast both days and we highly recommend anyone stay! We will be back!

Convenient location, clean and Comfortable suite, and a very friendly staff. My wife and I had fun and I'm planning another trip in the next month or so. The room and king bed were comfortable. The location is very close to downtown and a the action. The staff was friendly and breakfast was great.

The location was perfect, a two minute walk to many restaurants, shopping and the harbor. The room was perfectly appointed, clean and comfortable, had a fireplace and whirlpool. It was also very quiet. Homemade chocolate chip cookies upon arrival was nice for someone with a sweet tooth. In the morning Monique's french toast with strawberries, blueberries and bacon was our...

Black Duck is a nice place to stay, but management needs a lesson in management. Bought a groupon for Newport Blues. Inquired about adding a third person and was told I could for an extra fee, however an upgrade was not available. Left the third person home. Arrived at Newport Blues, a sign told me to check in at the...
