It gave good military discounts so for us it was relatively cheap, and the people were very nice and helpful. But it is older, with a DIY'er remodeling it, so if you are looking for "4 star hotel accommodations" you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a decent place to sleep, it should meet your needs.

6-29-14. We really liked our room, a place to stay until the next morning when we caught the ferry to Block Island. It's roomy, clean, decent TV, and has two nice double beds. $138 including tax. However, when we got there at 5pm, there was no one in the office, but only a phone number to call, but one had... More

This was one of the worst - and strangest - experiences I've ever had at a motel. We arrived at about 9pm tired from a long drive- and were greeted by a locked office with a hand-written note saying to call a phone number. I called a couple of times with no results. Shortly after, a guy shouted down from... More

I am sorry that your room was not up to our standards .We have a quality control program that reinspects all rooms... More

My husband and I just got back from a weekend at the Thames Inn and Marina. We had a wonderful room overlooking the water and the manager couldn't have been nicer. The hotel is conveniently located minutes away from many area attractions and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable. The only drawback was the hot water. It took forever... More

The place was great and located in a wonderful location. It was fun to sit out on the dock at night. They kindly upgraded our room to one with a better view without an additional charge. The rooms were nice, each with their own kitchen.

I stayed at this hotel recently and was very pleased with the room as well as the service! The room was clean, decorated and stocked with many handy items! Dishes, a dishwasher and even dishwashing detergent. The table was set beautifully and the bed was comfortable! The manager of the place was very kind and went out of her way... More
