Award-winning Inn in the heart of downtown Newport
As the name suggests, the Jailhouse Inn is actually the former site of the Newport County Jailhouse and the Newport Police Department.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Inn opened in 1986, after the police headquarters moved to its current location on Broadway.
I've never stayed here myself, but I imagine that the accommodations are much more pleasant now than before the building was reborn as an Inn!
An earlier jailhouse was built on this site in 1680, and then a new structure was built in 1772 by George Lawton and Oliver Ring Warner.
The Inn was renovated in 2005, and is the perfect choice if you're looking for somewhere to stay that's close to downtown and the waterfront. Don't worry, the mansions, beaches, Newport Cliff Walk and 10 Mile Ocean Drive are just minutes away by car also!
All the Inn's spacious rooms contain either 1 king or 2 full/queen sized beds and offer the following:
Complimentary European style Continental Breakfast is served each morning, as are tea and cookies every afternoon.
