My husband and I have not stopped talking about how great this Inn was! Lisa was amazing as the innkeeper. She was so friendly, accommodating and just helped to make the stay so pleasant. The Inn is beautiful and SO CLEAN (and that's SOO important to me to stay somewhere clean). The breakfast was delicious! We cannot wait to come back!
~ Jill
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Inn. Lisa the Inn keeper was so pleasant and very accommodating and all the rooms (we were a large group and got to see many of them) are beautiful and each unique. We will definitely be staying again.
~ Liz
Our experience was perfect! Nothing better than feeling like your home but without all the hassle of daily to dos. A beautiful place to wake up, eat a wonderful breakfast, and take a quick walk down town. Can?t wait to go back!
~ Kennedy
We had a lovely stay. The location service facility and staff are all outstanding. Would highly recommend it.
~ Paul
Thank you for a fabulous experience. Accommodations and your hospitality were beyond my expectations. Breakfast was AMAZING! I am looking forward to staying with you again!
~ Cristina
We stayed in room 11 and were extremely happy with the room. It was spacious and comfortable. The room was clean and very well appointed with a great view of the Newport Bridge. Room 11 is on the third floor with no elevator so if that is an issue for you I would suggest picking a different one. What really makes the Inn stand out is the staff. They were extremely accommodating and the breakfast each morning was 5 star. We highly recommend a stay at Serenity Inn.

A hidden gem in the middle of Newport! So close to everything...so much within walking distance. Parking is limited but that can be overlooked because everything else was spectacular! Cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had at The Serenity Inn....we come to Newport almost yearly and this is by far our favorite place. The whole Inn was charming and so clean! There was a fridge in our room which was a huge plus to keep snacks and chill a bottle of wine in. Lisa texted me early on the day of arrival to let me know that we could check in early which was a nice surprise and asked if we had any dietary restrictions which I really appreciated....Breakfast was unbelievable and mine was prepared GF which was so delicious! It was the perfect place to stay while celebrating an anniversary and we look forward to returning there in the future! I would give it 5 stars all day long!
~ Lisa (Coventry)
Hi, I am a Wedding Planner I have recommended Serenity Inn to many of my clients, but this was the first time I stayed at the Inn. Everything was "AMAZING". My October 2023 clients reserved all of the rooms, and I just emailed my September 2023 client to add your info to their Wedding Website. BTW, Serena, the Innkeeper was fabulous!!!
~ Guest
This was my second stay at Serenity Inn. I love the ambiance and the room was beautiful, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and the staff at Serenity Inn is wonderful. Would highly recommend and look forward to staying at Serenity Inn again.
~ Melissa
Everything was so clean and beautiful. The room was great and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and better than going out to breakfast. I will be back!
~ Emily
I am not one to fill out these types of surveys, but the service from Serena was too exceptional not to mention her here. Serena is top-notch, what a fine representative of the Serenity Inn. Could not have asked for more. From the start, she greeted us at the door and helped us with our bags. She is extremely congenial. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to everyone! P.S. oh and the inn was great too. rooms are beautiful and extremely clean!
~ Peggy
Since our first stay at Serenity it has been an absolute pleasure. Prior to arrival we are provided with information about the Inn and we are always accommodated with any special needs we may have. The staff are always super friendly and go above and beyond to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. We look forward to many more getaways at Serenity. Thank you!
~ Warren & Donna
Serenity Inn lives up to its name. Serena is so lovely and welcoming. Looking forward to many more stays.

~ Bill
We had a wonderful stay. Lisa and her staff are amazing! The breakfast was so delicious!! We can wait to come back!
~ Patty
We had a great time from our moment of arrival. Serena welcomed us and made the check-in process fast and easy. Our room was clean and inviting. Breakfast was delicious. The inn was close to everything. If the weather had been a bit warmer, we could have walked everywhere. If we ever make it to Newport again, we will definitely stay at the Serenity Inn.
~ Amelia
Very convenient check-in procedure, on-site parking, comfortable bed, and cleanliness of room all add up to a very pleasant stay. Thank you.
~ Susan
Our stay at the Serenity Inn was fantastic. The location was perfect, our room was beautiful and comfortable in every way. Check-in was easy, breakfast was delicious, and my only regret is that we stayed for only 1 night.
~ Ellen
Serenity Inn is a beautiful Inn. It is immaculate and decorated beautifully. The location is perfect for shopping and restaurants. We parked the car and walked everywhere. Breakfast was delicious. What a pleasure it was to meet Lisa, she couldn't have been more gracious. It was a wonderful stay.
~ Carolyn
One of the best b&b experiences we've had. Beautifully maintained accommodations and a lovely, warm staff.
~ Aggie
One of the best B&Bs we've visited. Very friendly staff, delicious breakfast, beautifully decorated room, & the location allowed us to walk the picturesque neighborhood, down to the waterfront!
~ Linda
There is no other word I can think of to describe this extraordinary B&B except PERFECT. The room was pristine and guest services awesome. It was a wonderful experience staying here overnight. The breakfast alone was worth the visit! Thank you Serenity Inn. We will visit you again.
~ Richard
Lisa and Serena are wonderful and their hospitality adds to the guest experience. Breakfast was truly gourmet. One of the best locations in Newport; walkable to the Mansions, shops, restaurants, and museums. Can't wait to return for another visit.
~ Jerry
Gorgeous inn, easy convenient check-in, and the location were excellent. The room is beautiful, the deck is fantastic.

We reserved the entire Inn for a wedding party. It was a fabulous experience!! The rooms are beautiful, the staff was very attentive and the breakfast was awesome! I would highly recommend this for bridal party's and family's of the bride and groom to be able to stay together!!! It made our weekend stress-free and a 10!! Thank you Serenity Inn, you totally exceeded our expectations!
~ Patti
The room was wonderful and the location was perfect. The breakfast and the hosts are top-notch. We will definitely return someday and recommend it to friends. Thank you!
~ Craig
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We enjoyed being with you. You went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed.
~ Tom M.
ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!! I was first weary about staying at a bed and breakfast, but my expectations were exceeded at the Serenity Inn. The grounds are beautiful and private, the guest room was tastefully decorated and the bathroom was completely renovated and pristine. I felt very safe and very private. The breakfast was delicious and the option for coffee and tea 24/7 was a bonus. The location was tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag, yet only a 5 minute walk to all of the wharfs. The innkeeper was very professional and made sure all of our needs were met. I am planning to come back to the serenity inn soon and I will recommend this place to everyone who will be staying in Newport.
~ Joseph (NYC)
Our stay was pure perfection! Loved the room, the staff, the breakfast, the many, many amenities. I'm a tough judge and can't find one thing I would change. Thank you for providing this blessed break. We're now planning on making this an annual event.
~ Jan (Wellesley, MA)
Very clean, renovated room with good air conditioning. Delicious made to order breakfast every morning. Staff accommodating and friendly. Hotel well located. We would definitely stay there again.
~ Michele (NY)
Our stay at Serenity Inn was wonderful! It was a quick overnight get a way that was just what we needed. The inn is clean, comfortable and in a great location. Our room was perfect. The gas fireplace made it so cozy on one of the coldest days/nights of the year. Breakfast was delicious and served by friendly accommodating staff. We will absolutely return!
~ Christine (Middletown CT)
Beautifully renovated property. The Innkeeper was pleasant and super accommodating. The Inn was impeccably clean. Great location, walking distance to shops and dining. We will be back again for sure. Highly recommend!
~ Christine
I had a fantastic experience at the Serenity Inn. The room was spotless and so well decorated. My room had a very plush bed, a rainforest shower and an adorable fireplace. The manager was amazing--willing to help you with anything you need and remembering small details like the fact that it was my boyfriend's birthday. Great location within walking distance to town and a convenient parking lot that allows you to have a safe place to keep your car. I will definitely be visiting again!
~ Nicole
What a wonderful experience we had. From the check-in to the beautiful and clean room to chatting with the ladies in the kitchen while they made our breakfast! We weren't sure what to expect because of the COVID-19 restrictions, but if this is how you operate under pressure, we can't wait to come back when things return to normal.
~ Tammy
This was our second time staying in room 10 at Serenity Inn in the last 6 months, and we absolutely loved it. We visit Newport a few times a year and this has become our favorite place to stay. The innkeeper, the staff, the cleanliness, and the breakfast are all amazing. They are so accommodating to any requests, extremely friendly, and did a wonderful job adjusting to this new normal during this pandemic. They still provided a wonderful home cooked breakfast to go, that we enjoyed eating on our private deck. The whole experience was so enjoyable and exactly what we needed.
~ Megan
Our stay at the Serenity Inn was fantastic. The Inn is in a perfect location, and the grounds are beautiful. Our room was quaint and well appointed. The innkeeper seemed as though she really cared about our experience. We have already decided that we will stay at the Serenity Inn again.
~ Eliza
Amazing! All around. The room was perfect with a huge bathroom and the most comfortable bed. The innkeeper was so sweet - she even got my favorite yogurt the second morning of our stay after my fiance told her about the flavors I like. We were blown away and will definitely be recommending to friends.
~ Elizabeth
Quiet, charming and updated inn. This is a couples dream. Room 10 with the balcony is lovely, great for a couples Weekend getaway. The innkeeper was lovely. The rooms were updated and designed with serenity in mind. The inn was walking distance to everything. Parking available for guests. Cozy, private & romantic... with a view. I cant wait to stay again.
~ Debora
This is our second visit to the Serenity Inn, and after staying at six or seven different places over the years, this is where we will return. The location is perfect, the staff is welcoming, and the Inn is impeccably clean. Plus, the beds are so comfy!!
~ Linda
Rating my satisfaction between 1-5 is not sufficient enough to rate my experience. The stay at the Serenity Inn was far beyond my expectation for any hotel, inn, bed and breakfast type of establishment. The staff and inn-keepers were attentive and kind. The breakfast was made with love. The room was luxurious. Altogether Serenity Inn was quite charming! I look forward to returning and making it our regular place to stay when in Newport. I highly recommend Serenity Inn.
~ Phoebe
Very comfortable accommodation - loved the sheets/mattress...well appointed bathroom/shower was great. Very convenient location. It felt like home, very warm and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely return.
~ Polly
The location was excellent. The room was beautiful and kept clean every day. The innkeepers were sweethearts that made us feel at home. Their restaurant recommendations were superb. Would I stay here again? Absolutely!
~ Aymee
I have fallen in love with Serenity Inn and I honestly would not want to stay anywhere else in Newport. The inn keepers are hospitable. The breakfast is made with love, and art. The spa service was perfect and much needed. The room... was spectacularly divine. I felt like our weekend away was full of luxury. I intend to come back and do it all again! Thank you for making everything like a fairy tale out of a story book.
~ Phoebe (Pawtucket, RI)
We arrived on the 28th of December and stayed until the second of January. We had a beautiful room that was kept clean and tidy every day. The breakfast every morning was delicious and different. The innkeepers were all delightful and charming and made us feel at home. Their recommendations for restaurants were awesome as well. Would we stay here again? Absolutely!
~ Aymee (North Bergen, NJ)
My husband and I love Newport. The Serenity Inn was in the perfect location and the decor was beautiful! Allison and Mary were the sweetest and the breakfast was delicious. We intend on staying here again next year!
~ Marianne
Allison is a wonderful innkeeper! We met her at Town and Tide earlier in the summer as well. Vacation Newport has done an amazing job of upgrading all these B&B's and we have stayed in 3 this summer alone. Everyone always makes you feel special, the food is fantastic, the rooms beautiful - and specifically at the Serenity the location is PERFECT. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Also - Newport in the summer is expensive and the prices are definitely competitive. Would recommend to anyone! We will continue to stay at Vacation Newport B&B's, and the Serenity, and will consider renting a whole inn for our 2020 wedding!
~ Taylor
We had an amazing stay at the Serenity Inn! The staff was lovely, the breakfast was amazing, and the decor and ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. The inn was a short ride from the beaches and mansions and had convenient on-site parking. We loved being so close to everything and enjoyed walking into town each night for shopping and dinner. We could not have found a better spot and would absolutely stay here again!
~ Kristen
Our stay was exceptional from the moment we arrived and were greeted warmly to the moment we left. The innkeepers were friendly and always eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The room was decorated beautifully and very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. There were nice seating areas outside and the location of the inn was very convenient. We would definitely come back.
~ Maria

We could not have asked for a better place to stay! Best location, delicious food, beautiful decor and so many extra special touches! Above all, Mary and Allison gave great recommendations and great service! We will be back!
~ Laura
Allison and Mary were both so friendly and welcoming. They were very helpful with directions and ideas about what to see and do in the area. The breakfasts and cookies in the afternoon were delicious! We will definitely be back to Newport and wouldn't think of staying anyplace else!
~ Wendy
We loved it at Serenity Inn. Luxury level accommodations for a great price. Comfortable bed in a huge classy bedroom. Decor is clean and chic. Friendly hosts. Lovely dining area. Quiet and residential but a few blocks from town. Wow.
~ Andrea

~ Alexandra
What an awesome stay! Shauna and Arianna were so friendly and the room was so comfortable! The shampoos, soaps, towels and sheets all felt very first class and luxurious. The rooms seemed really quiet as well considering our room was street side. Breakfast was OUTSTANDING...I wished we stayed a second night because my friend said Sunday's breakfast was even better!!!
~ Annie
Shawna and her staff were wonderful, really made you feel welcome. The breakfast was by far the best I have ever had at a B & B, the furnishing were beautiful, the location was great and plenty of parking. Overall I would definitely stay there again and will refer it to others when asked. Thanks Shawna and Arianna!
