Originally opened in 2017, this 143-room family-owned property in Middletown is now part of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts maintaining its popular Johnny’s Restaurant & Patio Bar, heated saltwater pool, ample wedding and event space and a convenient shuttle to downtown Newport. 




The name may not be new to regular visitors to Newport but the inn the sure is! The newly updated Cliffside Inn features traditional motifs mixed with modern touches to blend the property’s historic charm with contemporary style and amenities – a dichotomy for which Lark Hotels has become known. Originally an 1876 Victorian manor, today’s inn features 16 guest rooms, many with original early 20th century furnishings and unique architectural details.
