Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maxwell2071 Good quality for price
We spent a Friday and Saturday night recently while attending a function in Newport. Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Room was clean. Breakfast was excellent if you wanted a quick bit and on a time schedule. Would definitely lodge their again while in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bajan No problems at all.
I was a little concerned when I read some of the reviews, but I have read reviews before and then experience better. I had no problems at the hotel. The checking in was easy. I was given a handicapped room since I walk with a cane. The breakfast dishes were as advertised. Omlettes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage patties, variety of bread, bagels and English muffins. Muffins and cinnamon buns. Even fresh fruit. I love this hotel. Will stay there again and recommend it to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Quiet, affordable, with great staff & service
We stay here for several nights once or twice a year when we visit Newport. The hotel is generally very quiet when we are there which is out of season in Spring or Fall. The rooms are of good size and reasonably furnished with comfortable beds; we always ask for a king on the top floor. Only complaints are the pillows seem rather small to me as I am used to king sized pillows at home, and the lighting is rather dim; but that is true of most hotels! The free internet is fairly quick on both wired and wireless, and there is a desk on which to place the computer. The included hot breakfast is typical for this type of hotel and is fine and filling with good all round choices. I appreciate the 24 hour coffee including decaf. The staff are really excellent; friendly, helpful and always cheerful. Highly recommended, particularly if you are visiting Newport which is just a few minutes drive away. Recommended eating nearby: Blue Plate Diner and Anthony's Seafood.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LaurieMc Not like last time...
The room was as expected and the pool area was good. The disappointment was the breakfast. Last time we stayed here, we were pleased with the breakfast and decided to return here vs other hotels in the area because of the breakfast. Next time, it will not be part of the decision.
The hotel clerk when we checked in and out was very very nice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ray27 Sock in my bed
Its very upsetting as guest on a romantic weekend to get into bed only to find a previous guests dirty sock underneath my sheets. The front desk staff were "fantastic" but i find it unacceptable that the general manager couldnt find time to contact me via email with an apology (especially sice ive been a platinum member for years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kilty Room great, breakfast an issue
THe room was excellent with nice new fluffy towels. However, the one morning for breakfast, the cereal was subpar (imitation cherrios and only two choices), we got sour milk of fat free and had to get a new bowl of cereal with 2% reduced milk. THe bananas were strange....seem as if full of air and warm. New pones put out were much better, after we had had ours. Need to step it up with the breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary33767 Everything great but the breakfast
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express many times and always enjoyed a good stay. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the breakfast offereing this time. The cerial was stale, eggs were cold, bread was hard. I know there weren't many customers at the hotel during the days that I was there, but that is no excuse for the leftovers that were being served.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jake722 SO MUCH CONFUSION
We have so much confusion with or t stay. The hotel staffs are not properly trained. eventhough we booked long time ago, they were not able to find our reservation. So we have to wait in the line , for other customers to finish their check in. That was absolutely not fair to us. The hotel staffs attitudes were very bad. I wont stay there again or recomend to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TMont As expected, but skip the breakfast.
The 'free' breakfast was horrible, and this is coming from someone who is not picky and can handle anything. The microwaved eggs were not even close to being somewhat enjoyable. The cereal tasted like cardboard - how can you mess this up unless you are using cereal from a year ago? And get this, the bananas and apples were even bad. So, while the room was as expected, do not count on the breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Businesstripper Good Stay for Good Price
Facilities were average-nothing spectacular but room was clean (except showerhead which needs to be replaced). Close to Newport Naval Station. Restaurants nearby-some with delivery. Priced right for service and facilities.

Nice, quiet property, convenient to central Newport. We originally planned to stay for just a night, but decided to come back for another night (see next review)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chrissyanne fair service
Bed was not made each morning, shampoos and soap not replenished, pool water was too cold. unsupervised teens were very loud, had to ask for a room change. Same teens were unsupervised in hot tub and pool area and they were running in the halls yelling late at night.. Unsure if they were even with any adults. Curtains were very dirty, tub was oddly narow shape which made it feel unsafe. Breakfast was poor. Only good things were coffee, yogurt and cinamon rolls, rest of the food was very unsatisfactory.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepless50 Stay away from Room 104. Only book on the second floor.
We stayed last weekend. The room was fine. The walk from the parking lot and front desk was short. However, we got NO SLEEP. All night there was an on and off sound of water rushing thru pipes. It seemed like our room was an echo chamber for every toilet flushing on the upper floors. We finally turned up the TV on an all night news channel to drown out the sound to get to sleep.
We reported it the next morning and the Front Desk attendant said "we'll look into it." This can not be the first time anyone has experienced this level of noise!
Only a magnum of coffee got us thru our long drive home the next day without falling asleep at the wheel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mizmoe Not up to Holiday Inn standards!
Very disappointed this this visit and Holiday Inn Hotel. Bathtub was very dirty, stained and rusty. Ran out of food at Express Start breakfast. No bacon, biscuits, hard boiled eggs, coffee, cinnamon buns or fruit on Saturday morning. No eggs, sausage, or cinnamon buns on Sunday morning. I had to wait over one half hour on Saturday to get a cinnamon bun. The front desk clerk was covering front desk and also breakfast.
Also, no welcome gift bag or newspaper for priority club members which I am so accustomed with all of my other Holiday Inn stays!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by J91x Decent hotel, but way overpriced
The Intercontinental Hotel Group's hotels are no different than any other hotels, but they charge much more for their rooms than other chains. Why, I don't know, because one can get the same level of comfort and service at a much lower price from just about any other chain hotel.
