Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lawrence1991 Great staff, large rooms, good breakfast
I stayed here for a wedding for 2 nights, and was more than satisfied. I had read reviews about breakfast not being very good, but they have a new and improved selection and it was excellent with a wide range of choices including a make-your-own pancake maker. Every member of staff was super nice and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by emders Great service, clean and quiet
The room was ready on time and the desk sevice was very helpful.. We had an issue with the DVD player and the maintenance man spent a lot of time fixing it. We really appreciate that he did not give up.
The fitness center was small but adequate and the pool was an added benefit.
Breakfast were more than enough food and checkout was simple.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by crytna610 great place to stay and relax
My fiance and i were impressed with how clean our rooms were and how convenient it was checking in and out. There was also a side entrance where you could swipe your card for convenience. The staff was very friendly and helpful and they let us check in early without a problem. Breakfast was very good with lots of variety and there was 24 hr tea, hot chocolate and coffee service which was a plus. We will be staying again and hopefully using some of our club points.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CEBJH Clean, comfortable and staff was accomodating and pleasant.
We were not familiar with this area or hotel and stayed to attend a wedding in the area. This hotel was recommended by the bridal party.
Staff was very accommodating with handicap accessible room, early check in and late check out.
The room was clean, quiet and beds were very comfortable.
The breakfast room was very convenient and offered a great selection for breakfast on site.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Berrnadette Nice Stay
When we arrived, the front desk was friendly and worked to provide an upgraded room for us at no additional fee. Bed was very comfortable; room was clean; breakfast was excellent with a variety of breakfast foods and fresh fruit; price was reasonable for the Newport area. Our room was at the end of the hall; very accessible from outdoor parking and a quiet place to be. We had a light out in our entry way, so left the management a note on our way out so they could fix it. Very pleased.

The pancakes were flat and hard. You need to add sugar free syrup like the other HI Expresses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Avid Great Location
Very convenient to all the sites and very reasonable priced if you make an earlier reservation. Parking is no problem and front desk is very helpful. Small work out room and pool for the kids. Hotel is priced right for the area.
We took the bigger room(suite) because grandchildren had there own TV. Still only one bathroom and this slowed us down in the morning.
But next time we will take 2 rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kathleen22 Nice Hotel, diappointing breakfast.
The hotel and staff were wonderful! Room was clean and spacious.
However the breakfast left a lot to be desired. As my husband called it, rubber eggs and plastic cheese. Even the hard boiled eggs were frozen. Coffee was ok. Overall not what I was used to for a breakfast at a Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikey47 Good value for the area
Stayed here for one night while attending a wedding nearby. Price was half of other nearby hotels, but it was a perfect stay! Front desk was very helpful providing directions and suggestions for last-minute clothing needs. All staff we encountered was extremely friendly and polite. Room was nice.. bed was very comfortable, lots of pillows. No complaints at all, would certainly stay again if we were in Newport again!

We spent 6 days in the area touring the mansions. Staying here was very economical and pleasant. Our room was clean, roomy and comfortable. The staff were great helping us find what we needed. We enjoyed the pool every morning and appreciated the convenient breakfast. We would recommend and come back if ever in the area again.

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.

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.

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.
