Positive Reviews

Friendly and informative staff

When it comes to customer service, the Jailhouse Inn really shines - according to virtually all former guests. Welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the area, the staff will reportedly do all that they can to enhance your stay at the inn.

Clean, spacious rooms with character

The large majority of previous visitors have been thrilled with the rooms at the inn. Along with being immaculately clean and possessing comfortable furnishings, the subtle and individual characteristics of the rooms that honor the building's history have been well received.

Excellent Newport location

Due to its position in the center of downtown Newport, the location of the Jailhouse Inn has proved to be a real highlight for many past guests. With the likes of Washington Square and Thames Street a short walk away, the inn is ideally situated to explore the city and all that it has to offer.

Negative Reviews

No elevator

The omission of an elevator has been troublesome for some past visitors to the Jailhouse Inn. With that said, assistance is provided with regards to carrying luggage if needed.

Recreational facilities at a minimum

As the inn is a smaller accommodation choice, it does not tend to boast the same level of facilities that larger establishments provide. The lack of a bar, pool and other recreational areas has been a disappointment somewhat for a minority of former guests.

Small problems don't spoil a great stay

A small number of other complaints brought up on occasion include the noisy air conditioning units, the Wi-Fi not being the most reliable and the apparently small breakfast room. Yet none of these issues have generally spoilt what was a memorable time at the Jailhouse Inn for most previous visitors.
