Just got back from visiting the Jailhouse Inn. The location is 2 blocks from Thames Street. There is a porch on the front of the Inn which we ate breakfast on each morning. The staff was very friendly. Music was playing in the lobby everyday. Our room was spacoius and clean. The bathroom could you some shelving to put your toiletries on though. There is no view because it backs up to an alley shared by a mexican reastuarant. this did not bother us because we were not in our room much, The window aircondioner had a broken knob so we had to use a set of pliars to adjust it. We walked everywhere and so the location is great! We would recomend this Inn.
Jailhouse Inn is exactly what we were looking for. During previous trips we found trying to find parking anywhere in town extremely aggravating. If you do find a spot you need to keep going back to feed the meter or pay a lot fee each day. If you want to leave for a while and come back later in the day you will find yourself riding around and around looking for an empty spot and the lots fill up early. Located right downtown the Inn provided plenty of parking and allowed us to walk everywhere even to the Mansions, yet still have a place to retreat to when we needed a rest. We could take a drive and always have a parking space ready and waiting for us when we returned. There are many great restaurants and bars only steps away from the Inn.
Our room on the 3rd floor was large, and equipped with a small refrigerator, overstuffed chairs, sofa, and desk. The bed was firm and very comfortable with cozy bed coverings. Everything is painted bright white lending to a clean crisp feeling. (the outside could use a new coat of paint) The jail house theme is moderately done. I thought it was quite clever that the bathroom shower curtain was black and white stripes! Bath towels were thick and soft. The continental breakfast was sufficient and available until 11:00am. Each afternoon we came to enjoy the inviting aroma of Darryl's (the manager) fresh baked cookies wafting up the stairs to our room.
Just remember, the Inn is right downtown and you are in a busy place. Delivery trucks arrive early, and restaurant dumpsters are being emptied to make room for a new day. The day is coming to life by 8:00am. Buses pass by all day. Night life is prominent every day of the week and people are walking the streets at all hours. All that said the noise never bothered us at all.
We have stayed at several of the Inns in Newport, without any major complaints. But after each stay we continued to search for a new place to stay, one that would be just right for our needs. Our searching has now stopped, the Jailhouse Inn is where we will return to each time we visit this historical town.
The location is great, but the inn itself is only adequate. To be fair, our room was on the first floor, right by the entrance and the porch, so there was a lot of noise -- people partying late on the porch (my husband had to ask them to be quiet at 2 AM), buses passing. Upstairs rooms may be better. The owners strive to create a relaxing atmosphere with scented candles and continuous music in the lobby (most of it a bit too off beat), but I found it intrusive and a turn off. I had to ask that the music be turned down after 10 PM so I could sleep. The room was cramped and the beds too firm, but everything was clean. Breakfast is pretty basic. All in all, I would not return and don't think I'd recommend it to friends.
the jailhouse inn is a great place to stay on your visit to newport. they are located right in the heart of newport. it's great if you want to experience the nightlife (short walking distance to all the fun npt has to offer) or if you are looking to see the rest of the island. great value and the staff is great, always friendly and willing to help you find thingd todo around town.
My husband and I spent two nights at the Jail House Inn andd we were very pleased with the accomodations. The Inn is very clean and the room was comfortable. The breakfast served was more than adequate. They put out cookies and snacks in the afternoon along with tea and coffee. The location is such that it is an easy stroll to all the shops and restaurants. Our room (#11) had two queen beeds: each bed was in its own little room connected with a bath. This room would be great for a family. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. We would definately return.
Jailhouse is a good value. It's not the most fancy or upscare place in the world but it'll do if your looking for a clean place to crash. It's quaint and very,very clean. Nicely decorated, again nothing fancy but nice. If very close to downtown and has it's own parking. If you're looking for something fancy you're going to pay in Newport but if you a regular person looking for a good value this is it. Only down sides were the street can be a little busy/noisy and the walls are a little thin so you hear everything but hey it's a very old building...
We have stayed at the jailhouse inn three years in a row. Their rates are very reasonable, and staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and you can't beat the location-you can walk to all the shops.
We discovered the Jailhouse Inn on a road trip from Cape Cod to New York. It was excellant value for money and had been recently refurbished. We stayed for two nights and the rooms were very impressive - of a 4-star quality - the furnishings were tasteful, modern and comfortable and the front desk staff were very obliging. I cannot recommend this place enough.
The moment we walked in the Jailhouse Inn, I knew I had chosen a great little place for our quick visit to Newport. Everything was neat, shiny, friendly reps at the front desk, great coffee in the morning, best of all the room was tidy, clean, quiet. The bathroom was absolutely spotless and felt just like home with it's upper-scale supplies available. We came from four nights in CT and a horrific non-refundable hotel experience, and this was heaven! Also enjoyed the Red Parrot for dinner and Newport Blues for live music!
