CLARKESTON, B&B Newport The CLARKESTON B&B is 1 of 4 Guesthouses, that belong together and stand next to each other on Clarke Street. The buildings are very old (1700) and it shows; you step into a different century. On the other hand, everything works fine with a large bathroom, but a rather small bedroom with limited storage for luggage (...

We initially chose this place because of it's convenience and price, but now know that we won't stay anywhere else! Our room was beautiful and held all the same charm and character as Newport itself. Not to mention, the owner made us feel at home and welcome right away. We were also pleasantly surprised to get a hot, made to...

I had planned a weekend with a friend visiting from Abroad. Having stayed at many amazing B&B's in the Northeast I thought a B&B experience would be something special. Unfortunately The Clarkston was anything but the charming B&B I had visualized. It was run-down, not clean and the photos posted on their site are misleading. In addition to that they...

The Clarkeston Inn was very nice with a lot of charm. Upon arriving we could not enter the street due to major pavement and road repairs. It was, at times, a nuisance but bearable. Our room had a king size bed and it was VERY clean. The toilet began to leak at the floor with every flush. We showed it...

We appreciate your patience during the repaving of Clarke Street; now that the work has moved into week 3, we are in need of a dose of your great advice to "go with the flow"-ha! Thanks for your review and we hope to see your group again, Rick

My husband, son and I drove to RI from NJ not even having reservations to stay anywhere. At the last minute we came across this place. We had options of which room to stay in & we stayed in the suite. It was clean and spacious for our 5 yr old to play in. It was very a convenient location.

Keep looking!!! The Clarkeston is one of the four homes you can stay in, but the only one advertised. Upon arrival we began questioning our decision from the outside and we were right. We were placed in a room in the Newport Inn (directly across the street) from the Clarkeston. They provided us with two options, the first one we...

There were some nice things about this property - the location is excellent. It is on a side street so the noise isn't as heavy as say the Marriott or some of the other B&Bs in town. I also thought the rooms themselves were charming. You have to be into old rustic New England style, but I like that compared...

Rather than the usual gift giving in our living room, this year we opted for a different kind of Christmas celebration. We decided on Newport and thought we'd try a B&B.

The Clarkeston is within walking distance of all shops and the Barrister Wharf which is a plus! For breakfast you can choose what you want to eat. Rick was very accommodating and all-around a nice guy. Note staying in Newport isn't cheap so be prepared for sticker shock.
