Wonderful accommodations! We were very pleased with our room. It was super clean, perfectly located and just what we needed. Very cute modern cottages with all amenities.

Our favorite place to stay.
~ Moe
My girlfriend and I absolutely love this place. We can't wait to get back there again soon.
~ Nick
I loved staying here. The cottages are perfect, comfortable, private and decorated tastefully. I can't wait to return in February.
~ Krista
East Island is a great place, extremely clean and it gives you a residential home-like feeling. Not like a big hotel commercial building feel. The place overall is beautiful. We love to stay there every time we come to Newport.
~ Carlo
Absolutely a beautiful place to stay and one of our best experiences. The staff is outstanding and the cottage provided a perfect respite from our college visit to Salve Regina. The decor is stunning and the amenities were high-level as well.
~ Gina
We had a fantastic stay in the cottages. They were clean, beautifully decorated, and quite comfortable. We would definitely come back.
~ Karen
The East Island Reserve felt like home; the accommodations were immaculately decorated and the staff thought of every detail. To say that we merely enjoyed our stay is an understatement.
~ Rachell
Clean, beautiful, and comfortable. I could not have asked for more.
~ Kimberly H.
Beautiful property immaculate cottages! Not far from Newport. Hope to come back again next year.
~ Carolyn F.
Another wonderful stay!! My sister came to see us and was so impressed that she wants to just live there permanently.
~ Nina
My boyfriend and I stayed at one of the rooms in The Lodge. It was clean and cozy. The shower was spacious and the king sized bed was comfortable. It was convenient having utensils, wine glasses, coffee mugs, coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge in the room. Loved having a private balcony. It was a perfect getaway with contactless check-in and check-out. We will definitely be going back.
~ Sandra (Cranston)
It was a perfect little condo/cottage that had everything we could need. It was clean and had all amenities. Awesome location! Easiest check in and check out ever, loved our weekend there! Cant wait to go back
~ Paige
East Island Reserve was the cutest spot for a weekend getaway! The cottage itself was spotless and guest services was super friendly and helpful. I highly suggest staying here if you're looking for a relaxing and pretty private retreat.
~ Kelcee
We were truly amazed with the facility for the value it was the best that we have experienced. It was our daughters wedding and the entire facility was occupied with the wedding party and family. Every person from our party staying at East Island Reserve shared the same amazement at the quality of the facility and the value. Cannot wait to return!
~ Robert
Wow, we loved it! So nice to find a free-standing building, rather than a hotel room, when traveling with a dog. Such adorable cottages with all the comforts of home. In fact, we discussed that the design is exactly what we'd build if we wanted to downsize to a one bedroom house.
~ Jessica
My husband and I spent the weekend here to celebrate our anniversary. This was our first time staying at East Island Reserve and it will definitely not be our last! I loved everything about our stay. Check in was so easy, getting a code in advance and not having to worry about arriving by a certain time. The room was so clean, smelled new and was decorated with a beach like charm. What impressed me the most was the small details such as a separate dark makeup towel and the bedside white noise machine. It was also a nice bonus to have the Newport Vineyard right next door in walking distance. Can't wait to come back again!!!
~ Meghan (Guilford, CT)
We absolutely loved our stay at your beautiful facility. The cottages were absolutely adorable. It truly felt like a home away from home. The grounds were very well maintained with beautiful landscaping and the decor was perfect. We look forward to coming back!
~ Jaclyn
So happy we found this place! Perfect spot for our dog and only a short ride to Newport. Looking forward to staying here again.
~ Tom
We couldn't of asked for a better place to stay with 2 bedrooms and enough room for everyone! It was nice having a living room at night to relax after a day in Newport!
~ Gail
We came with our puppy and were amazed at the ample space, amenities and beautiful manicured property. The kitchen was well equipped, we enjoyed the separate thermostat units for each floor, the extra towels and the washer/dryer was a nice added bonus! I will definitely be returning to this cottage, which is closely located to Newport Vineyards, Easton's Beach, the famous cliff walks, and Lucky Dog Resort for doggy day care!
~ Liana
We had a fabulous experience here at the East Island Reserve Hotel. From ease of booking, customer service, clean cottage, definitely comfortable and full of amenities. The two bathrooms was a nice surprise. The grounds were clean and nicely groomed, easy to find and check in! Our group loved our stay!
~ Danielle
The grounds and cottage were immaculate. Perfect as a pet-friendly accommodation. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Have recommended to friends and family.
~ John (New Hampshire)
I loved the attention to detail in the cottage. Everything you could need is there. Cottages have a great deal of privacy. The landscaping and outdoor areas are beautiful and the pool is a great addition.
~ Joellen
Very easy check in. Clean inside. Kitchen is equipped with all that is needed. Grounds are impeccable. Can't wait for our next stay.
~ Vincent
We absolutely loved our stay here. The suite was clean and beautifully decorated. Plenty of space and comforts of home. The pool was beautiful and well cared for.
~ Ami
We stayed for our wedding week and encouraged guests to do the same. Many stayed for multiple nights. We heard absolutely no complaints. Everyone said they would stay again. The cottages are so perfect for this type of situation, allowing people to all be nearby, while also offering personal space. Management was unbelievably accommodating to our wedding- getting ready in the Adirondack room, extra vehicles at times for brief periods/ drop offs. It was perfect and we are so happy.
~ Noelle
Cottage was pristine, homey and beautifully decorated with a beachy theme. Furniture and bed very comfy. Appreciated the extra touches like Keurig with kcups, paper towels, soaps, etc. Wonderful customer service letting us arrive earlier. Everything is so easy from reservation online to No in person checkin or checkout. Great location next to vineyard, 10 minutes to second beach, Newport and many great restaurants. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful relaxing environment. Loved it.
~ Patricia
We loved staying at the East Island Reserve! The cottages were very private and so nice!
~ Melanie
Wonderful place to stay. Five stars! Enjoyed the king size bed, The Bose sound system was great. Kitchenette was a plus and the bathroom was large with an extra large shower. I felt like I was at a spa. Plus the salt water heated pool is a nice touch. Guest services is wonderful. Very clean.
~ Rosemarie
Beautifully designed and appointed rooms. I want to copy many of the things you did! Love the check-in experience. Wonderful experience. Loved proximity to Newport Vineyards. Adirondack Room so lovely!
~ Stacey
The place was spectacular! Nicely appointed, beautifully decorated! It far exceeded our expectations. The beds and linens were so comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and with beautiful utensils and dishes. I recommend East Island Reserve Hotel!
~ Elaine
We loved our cottage. It was beyond what we expected. So clean and adorable. We only stayed one night this time, but booked 3 nights in June and can't wait to come back.
~ Wayne
Aggie is wonderful! Such a breath of fresh air when it comes to customer service!! Can't wait for our next stay at East Island Reserve!!
~ Renee
An absolute gem of a hotel. Such an incredible experience. I have stayed in Four Seasons and villas in Turks and Caicos and the East Island Reserve is probably my favorite place I've ever stayed! All furnishings and appliances were of the highest quality. I would also like to personally thank Leslie for her amazing customer service. Thank you East Island Reserve!
~ Ryan
We absolutely loved the place. Was a girls' weekend in Newport and we couldn't have asked for a better place! Thank you!
~ Maureen
Perfect way to spend the night with friends. We loved the coziness of the first floor and the separate bedrooms!
~ Becky
We have stayed in the East Island Cottages a few times now. It's our favorite place to stay while in the Middletown area. We also booked a few cottages for our family and our friends this past September while attending a wedding in Portsmouth. They all loved it as well.
~ Kim
We loved the privacy and updated interior of the cottage. Overall a peaceful stay outside of the busy streets of downtown Newport.
~ Brittany
I look forward to coming back. The room was very well thought out as for the needs of someone visiting the area. It was definitely a home away from home.
~ Cheryl
The cottage was lovely and really helped my wife and I relax after our wedding reception. My wife and I are contemplating renting here again for our 1 year wedding anniversary next November.
~ Daniel
My son and I stayed here while he was competing at Roger Williams University for an athletic event. We were both very impressed with the cozy feel of the cottage and the amenities included, such as the bose speaker. He especially loved the heated bathroom floors! We visited the Adirondack room, which was decorated beautifully and included a nice assortment of teas/coffee.
~ Anne
This is my second time here! My daughter and I stayed over the summer and I had my girls weekend in a suite this weekend. We love this place! Can't wait to come back!
~ Megan
I needed a last minute room even though I have a home very close to East Island Reserve. Leslie was so understanding and accommodating. She had me in a cottage and settled in within minutes. The cottage was modern, very clean, and beautifully decorated. The king size bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I will definitely recommend to family and friends.
~ Debra
The most exceptional lodging I've ever stayed in. This place is the reason I visit Newport!
~ Michelle
Loved this place, just stayed over the weekend for a wedding at the Newport Vineyard next door. Everything was fantastic, the venue was beautiful, the cottage was beautiful and the bed was so comfortable I did not want to leave! I will come again for sure!
~ Kathy
Thanks for the stay, the cottage was perfect and Aggie was brilliant and made sure that I had everything that I needed including flexibility with check in. Would 100% come again if ever back in the area.
~ Christopher
My mother adored her stay!! She said the bed was amazing and the property was very very quiet. Overall an outstanding value and a great stay! Looking forward to staying with you when we return to the area! Oh and the kitchen was very well appointed!!
~ Sarah
Unit was clean and in good shape. Bed, chair and couch were very comfortable.
~ Mike
The perfect place to stay! I have never had such an "at home" feeling when I was traveling. We did not miss a thing. Due to bad weather, we "stayed at home" and felt very comfortable. Thank you for this great experience!
~ Isabell
Our second stay at East Island Reserve and not our last! Really love this place and it's close proximity to Newport. The cottages are clean, modern and well kept. They now offer a Continental breakfast which wasn't available on our first visit. Checking in and out couldn't be easier. Staff, when needed, were available, friendly and attentive to our needs. My wife and I love the coffee machine which can whip up an espresso, latte or cappuccino or other hot beverage FREE.
~ Ken
This was the first time staying at the Reserve. I had my best friends 40th birthday to plan. I wanted to hit the last Polo match of the season and incorporate the fabulous Newport Vineyard that is adjacent to your property. We rented two cottages for on evening and all the ladies were impressed with the cleanliness, beautiful decor and comfortable beds. The property was beautiful and the customer service was on point. Most of the ladies will be coming back with their husbands. Absolutely a recommendable place to stay for people who are not from the state and native Rhode Islanders as well. Well done, team at the East Island Reserve. Thank you.
~ Melissa
The property and our experience was very enjoyable. The location was perfect and the room was exceptional. From the continental breakfast and the friendly host in the room, to the peaceful poolside relaxation, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Rhode Island.
~ Blair
Beautiful cottage, warm and friendly atmosphere. The bed was so comfortable. Thank you for such a great time.
~ Stephanie
This is my second time staying in one of the beautiful cottages. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. The cottage was adorable and the pillows were AMAZING! I am planning on another trip soon and will be staying here again!
~ Angela
My evening spent at East Island Reserve was a pleasure. The staff are no less than amazing as are the accommodations. Kudos to Aggie and her wonderful staff!
~ Jan
Absolutely loved the separate cottage with the perfect setup. The bedroom above with the beautiful bathroom and all of the amenities! Perfect for our daughter's wedding weekend. We love the separate cottage. It seemed more private and everything was completely comfortable. Thank you.
~ Victoria
A pleasant experience from start to finish. Beautiful accommodations. We forgot something in the room after check-out, and getting it back was completely painless. Thanks!
~ Dana
Overall experience was excellent, and we hope to stay here again in a few months. We appreciated the privacy of the cottages and the decor was very nice Perfect for couples and love that it is dog friendly. Winery next door is a bonus. Location was easy to find and very accessible to everywhere we needed to be. Staff was super accommodating and helpful.
~ Kim
We loved the whole experience! Great room!! Very comfortable!
~ Cindy
Everything was excellent. It was a true home away from home. We will be back!
~ Anna
We were in the cottage for a week, and we enjoyed every minute. The pool was an added bonus. and all the staff we encountered were very friendly. The king bed was super comfortable! We loved the fact that a Keurig and laundry pods were supplied! We didn't want to leave! We can't wait to come back. Thank you!
~ Megan
Beautiful place - with everything we needed. Great location. Just wished we'd had time to use the pool. We'll just have to come back!
~ Barbara
I loved the laid back, friendly vibe at East Island Reserve. The staff were incredibly warm, friendly and responsive.
~ Heather
We made our reservation at the very last minute- through an online booking site. The young lady at the front desk was surprised by our arrival as she had not yet received the info from the booking site. She was remarkable! She explained how nutty the day had been, that our room would not be ready until 6 pm and then offered us use of the Adirondack Room and pool. She checked us all in and provided us with key codes and access to pool/ Adirondack room. She came and collected us at the pool when the room was ready. She even came back to our room to make sure all was to our expectations and gave us a lovely bottle of wine from the local vineyard. She thanked us for our patience and understanding. You have a true professional in your employee! She represents your property at a very high level. BTW- our accommodations were fantastic.
~ Norma
Wonderful experience. Would book again. We had a great time. Place is so cute!!! Loved it.
~ Barbara
Our stay was wonderful! The property is pristine and the cottage was beyond comfortable. Thank you so much!
~ Heather
This place is adorable. I could easily and happily live in the suite or the cottage for the rest of my life and be completely content. SO cute.....Aggie was great in helping us with our event this past weekend. She went beyond the call of duty for me. Thank you!!!!!
~ Sue
This was a fantastic place to stay! The room was excellent and very clean. Leslie was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here.
~ Ken
My family and I stayed at East Island the first week of August 2017 and even now we wish we were still there! The 2 bedroom suite was just perfect for our needs. (2 adults, 2 kids) The space was very clean, beautiful and so convenient to the beaches and attractions. Special thanks to Aggie and Dave, they were so accommodating, friendly, and hard working. Looking forward to staying at East Island Reserve again soon!
~ Jaimie (CT)
We stayed in one of your cottages this past weekend and were so pleased with the accommodations! The whole setup was perfect for our small family. We appreciated the charming design layout, upscale details and finishes, high quality linens and towels and all of the thoughtful amenities, such as the Keurig K-cups, laundry pods, etc. The location was very convenient to Newport and we enjoyed seeing the vineyard and farmland as we drove in. We would definitely love to stay again if we return to the area. Many thanks!
~ Susan (Nantucket)
Loved this place!!! Private, clean, conveniently located, fully-outfitted, cozy, and very comfortable! We took Lyfts in and out of Newport for less than $10 each way on the weekend which was super convenient and easy. We cannot wait to go back!!!
