Worst B&B I ever stayed in. Pay attention to the negative reviews and the bizarre answers from the owners (on Trip Advisor). The bed was awful, one of the owners walked into my room when he thought we were out. There is a volume of "rules" to abide by. If you want a recipe, you will be asked to write a positive review in return. Something is just not right at the Architects Inn.
Follow strict inn rules or face very inhospitibale hosts
By far, this inn was the worst and least welcoming hotel that i've ever stayed.

By far, this inn was the worst and least welcoming hotel that I've ever stayed.
When you walk in, you will be asked to remove your shoes. You will be asked to do many other things during your stay. These rules are listed in what the establishment calls "The Bible" that you are shown upon check-in. "The Bible" contains several unique and interesting tips and nice-to-knows about visiting Newport, but first and foremost, it is a guide to your expected behavior during your stay. If you deviate from this expected behavior, your hosts will turn from nice to not nice in very short order.
I stayed in a room that was described as a "cottage suite". It was hardly a suite, and it was certainly not a cottage. It was a rather small room in the attic with a few wicker chairs and tables, and one king bed. In some places, such as the bathroom, a grown person cannot stand up straight. The TV/VCR was small and probably from the early 1990s. My room was never cleaned during my stay.
There is also no sense of comfort or privacy in this Inn. While being led to my room, I first had to pass by a group of men, all in their underwear, walking back and forth between rooms in the hall. I could see inside their room, and they had been sleeping on mattresses on the floor. This was not the warm welcome I had anticipated.
It may be possible to enjoy your stay at Architect's Inn as long as you follow all of the many rules, and do not ruffle the owner's feathers by asking for courtesy or service. You should also enjoy staying in a place where the interior design has not been updated much since the 19th century.
However, If you are concerned with hospitality, comfort, ambiance, or having a relaxing vacation, do not stay here.

The Architect's Inn was very easy to find, but follow the instructions given on the website, not the ones on GPS units. Nick and Brian are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts are nothing short of gourmet, and there are two sittings to choose from. The house is wonderfully restored. We were on the third floor (which wasn't a pleasant end to the day after walking the Cliff Walk) and our private bath was down the hall. Everything was clean and well appointed. The bath had a wonderful shower. In the afternoon, there was either cookies or brownies sitting out on the dining room table and the house smelled wonderful from the baking. It is in close proximity to everything, and Nick is a wealth of knowledge of the area. We stayed the end of May, and I can't imagine how hot it gets in July and August without A/C. Very quiet, didn't hear anything from any of the other guests. There is a nice library with books and DVDs to choose from if you so wish. I would very much return to the Architect's Inn again!
