Great stay.
My wife and I loved this place. It was easy to find and the rooms were great...keeping in mind it was once a jailhouse. The beds very comfortable and the room clean and neat. We're in our mid-sixties and had no problem walking the short way to the restaurants and shops. We plan on coming back.

65 Anniversary trip
We surprised my inlaws for their 65 wedding anniversary by staying here. They had been here when it first opened and my mother in law raved about it. My only concern was that there are no elevators, since it is such an old building, but they were not able to accomodate us and put us on the first floor even though we were with elderly parents one of them who used a cane to walk. We had to carry all of our luggage up 3 flights, there wasn't even anyone there to help us with our bags.

Excellent inn, charming and historic
Just a one night stay, we were right in the heart of Newport within walking distance of everything. The inn is so charming, with an INCREDIBLE breakfast spread, and has so much history on all of its walls. Would come back again (maybe off season when the price drops :)

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.
