Very Good 8.0
fabulous location, noisy room
Perfect location for exploring Newport. We expected a lot more from this hotel after reading the reviews. Our room was lovely but so very noisy. You could hear the neighbours through the walls, every time someone used the bathroom the pipes clanked and banged terribly. An ugly air con unit was also attached to the window so there was a gap to the outside around the unit, not great when the bin men collect the rubbish in the small hours. We also didn't get the best experience when we first arrived. We were early so popped in the hotel to say we had arrived. We were told quite flatly by the lady at the desk that check in was at 3pm. We asked could we leave our bags? we were told there wasn't really anywhere to put them. We asked for a map of the area "they're over there" Everywhere we have stayed on our trip people have been so helpful, today was just too much trouble.

Fantastic location1
Very nice B&B - close to the wharf with fun shopping and great restaurants. Parking is EXPENSE and cumbersome around this area - free parking at the inn is great. Service was friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and unique. Amenities were nice. Plenty of unpacking space. Breakfast was plentiful and easy to manage.

Comfy, Clean, & COOKIES!
We just spent three nights at the Jailhouse Inn and we were beyond satisfied with our choice. Free, convenient parking was included and the Inn was very clean with a nice selection for self-serve breakfast which made it easy to eat and be on your way. The "Sheriffs" were all very friendly; especially Ashley who we enjoyed meeting and chatting with on our way in and out to dinner. Ashley could answer any question we had on Newport and offered some excellent dinner recommendations which included pricey to good value and casual to fine dining depending on what we wanted. Every Inn should have an Ashley at the front desk! After a day of touring mansions, etc. it was delightful to come home to the delicious, fresh-baked cookies (chocolate chip & oatmeal)! A morning newspaper would be a nice touch for early risers who might want to relax on the front porch with coffee. If we travel back to Newport, we will definitely stay at the Jailhouse Inn again.

Clean, comfortable, great location, friendly staff
The room was super clean and comfortable. The former jailhouse/police station is on the National Historic Register, with interesting architectural details. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Fabulous location close to restaurants with great amenities - free parking, continental breakfast, freshly baked cookies, complimentary bottled water & refrigerator in the room - 5 stars!!! Definitely a winner!
