Gateway Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Newport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 May 2009

This restored 1800's home is wonderful! Sandy and Ken have taken great care to make stays outstanding - breakfasts, company & location were perfect. About 4 blocks from Newport on the levee and 1 mile from the stadium (via walking bridge). Walking in the area is very safe and the house is well secured. We never took our car out all weekend.

The house has many stairs and the tubs sit up pretty high. If this is an issue then another location should be selected.

We loved every minute of our stay at the Gateway! The location is great, close to the city, restaurants and entertainment. Among the Best parts (and there are Many!) of this b and b are the owners! Ken and Sandy did everything to make our stay relaxing, fun, and wonderful; their home is so clean, inviting and comfortable. We stayed in the Shriver Room: queen sized bed,desk, and attached bathroom were just what we needed. The area has plenty to do, some within walking distance(try Pompilio's for Italian food, or Mitchell's Seafood at the Levee Center--both good!)we slept soundly, as there is little noise from the street after 10pm. Before the great breakfast is even ready, there is hot coffee, waiting for you. We enjoyed a cup in the side garden, and then had a nice time getting to know the others staying in the inn, too. We look forward to visiting again; I can see Why many people have returned often!

Year after year we come to this wonderful getaway and enjoy the house, the company, the views of the Ohio River and all of the activities close by. I honestly cannot think of one negative thing to say about any of our many experiences enjoying the hospitality of Ken and Sandy Clift! They make their home your home - that is the quality you look for when visitng a bed & breakfast. Those are the ones you look forward to returning to. If you are looking for a memorable experience, whether for a romantic getaway, anniverary, or even just to catch a Reds game and take in the CIncinnati skyline, this is the place you want to be. Come on down, you won't be sorry!

Ken and Sandy's Gateway Bed and Breakfast in Newport, Ky is a must if you're visiting Cincinnati. A beautifully restored and furnished home within the scenic and historic section of Newport and so convenient to both Kentucky and Ohio's riverfront dining, entertainment, and cultural attractions. Ken and Sandy are wonderful, charming hosts who will make your stay memorable. I look forward to going back soon.

My husband and I had an excellent stay at the Gateway Bed and Breakfast in Newport, Kentucky. We had a wonderful parking spot behind the building, and were greeted by Scrappy, Mr. Bear, and Ken (one of the owners) as soon as we pulled in by the garden. Ken helped to carry our bags in, and we had time to sit back and enjoy our beautiful room. We also were in walking distance of many restaurants and the Levee where we could shop, people watch, and go to the Aqaurium.
I recommend this Bed and Breakfast for anyone that is traveling to Newport for the location and hospitality.
Plus, Ken can make a mean Mexican omelet! : )
