We checked into the hotel in the evening and the host greeted us from the parking lot. Although the parking lot was small, parking was easy. They have an adjacent building next to this brown building, so that's where we stayed at. The hotel was nice and clean overall. I wish there were counter space at the sink so i can place my toiletries. We were surprised to see jets in the tub but we didn't use it. The location was excellent. Very quick walk to the waterfront and to Thames st (that was the main reason why we chose this place). If you've never been to Newport, most of their hotels are colonial style. Which was something that some people may not be comfortable with. They had a strong AC but no fridge. The no-fridge part was a bummer since we wanted to store our food and drinks.
