Pretty historic house in downtown Newport
Melville House is in a great location in downtown Newport, with a very historic feel to the buildings and the street. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating, giving us a choice of rooms so we would be happy with our stay. The breakfast, which is an additional charge, was varied and nice.

Disappointed in Newport
The property was fair to poor overall, with respect to condition: the sink leaked; chair in room was broken and could not support weight of average sized adult; window treatments were missing and drapes we put up in a very shoddy manner. Also the electric fireplace in the common room was not working. Wifi was sub par at best

Charming historic inn
The Melville House provides a great opportunity to stay in a quaint pre revolutionary war building that is on the National Registrar of Historic Places. Clark St where the hotel is located seems exactly like it was in 1750 when the Melville House was built, except for the paved road...

Booked this property as a gift getaway for my sister. SHE LOVED IT! We used to live in the area, and knew that the location was ideal. Management took care of a couple of special requests for the booking and was amazingly accommodating. I cannot wait to visit!

Quaint & Cozy
This quaint town of Newport RI was great fun, and our stay in an 18th century home was wonderful. It's not the Ritz. It's an old establishment, so the floors & walls are uneven, yet the room has been updated & modernized. It was absolutely wonderful & the breakfast was great, too.
