My wife and I travel to area frequently and stay in Newport before continuing on to other destinations in area. Been travelling to Newport for many years and never have had difficulty getting room on short notice. The weekend we went there was big event in town and many graduations so rooms were at a premium. I located the Whale...

I was in only for one night and wanted to find something affordable, with parking opportunities and found this little gem just a short distance from Newport town center. ($6-8 Uber ride in to Thames St.) The people here were very friendly and welcoming, the place is clean, and the view overlooking Easton Pond at sunset is amazing.

We actually ended up here after another hotel in the area lost our reservation. Wasn't sure what to expect when we pulled in. We were pleasantly surprised. It's a mom and pop motel and the owners are so nice. Our room faced the water and was very nice. The cleanliness of the room was outstanding! They accommodated us with a...

Opted to stay in a quaint location vs chain hotel. Room was very clean, beds/pillows comfortable. Flowers set this space apart from others and gives it a cozy atmosphere. Very small bathroom with no counter space for items, but wasn't a big deal for us. Terri, owner was very accomodating, friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions. Easy access...

The Sea Whale is very close to the road but has a wonderful back yard with a great view of the water (don't know what water, but water). There are chairs and picnic tables for the guest's use. The room was large and clean & has a refrigerator. It was just disconcerting to walk into the office and have the...

Thanks for reviewing our property. Just want to clarify a few issues mentioned in your review for those reading and not understanding the location of the building, etc. Yes, we are located right on the gateway to Newport in the Atlantic Beach District (Newport East) of Middletown. Our street, Aquidneck Ave. in Middletown runs right into Memorial Ave. in Newport....

A roadside motel with room entry directly from the parking lot is a bit old fashion, along with the room fixtures and low ceilings, but the stay was great! We enjoyed the close walk to the Public Beach, the local restaurants and the picnic benches out back overlooking a river scene. The bed was firm and we had a good...

What a great affordable place to stay. A wonderful waterfront view with comfortable chairs outside to relax and watch the water. Clean, comfortable and quiet rooms with WIFI and cable TV and plenty of parking. A great location and minutes from Newport. The owner I talked to was so nice and accommodating, she was very helpful.

We really enjoyed our visit. The room was clean and quiet. The mattress was very firm and comfortable. The view of Easton Pond is lovely. The hotel is older, and there are no fancy amenities. But there is free Wi-Fi, and a flat screen TV, a refrigerator and microwave, and plenty of hot water. My only suggestion is that the...

I have been on the road for over 3 years. I've visited 101 cities and reviewed 213 hotels and restaurants. This motel is not new. This motel is not fancy. This motel brings me back to my childhood! Road trips to the Poconos with my grandparents. Our cottage on the Cape. It's simple. It's clean. It's convenient to Easton Beach....
