We've been going to The Willows for about 10 years now. We always stay in the main building the traditional motel-y part. The resort is located on Foster's Cove, a tiny spit of water... but they have that adorable sailboat anchored in the cove, with a light on it at night... it feels like Waterfront somehow, despite the reality that...

If you want a genuine, courteous manager and staff then this is your place. For the area this was also the best price, nicest people, best breakfast and the pool was very clean, large and beautiful. The grounds is also very well kept, spacious and we had a good game of Frisbee!!! We went to Rhode Island from Oklahoma for... More

I should start by saying that the Willows Resort is not a resort, but rather (as their website mentions) a family-owned piece of property with a few different types of rooms. If your expectation is for some five star looks-like-every-other-waterfront resort, you will be disappointed. If you're looking for a quiet weekend, with no frills on a property whose rooms... More

So, I knew I was taking a chance by the mixed reviews on here but I just decided to book it for 2 nights. Well what a mistake. You can tell just by pulling into the driveway what you're in for. I can deal with the old school check in and having a key, but once we opened that door...holy... More

We chose this 'resort' on the positive reviews and advice at Trip Advisor. When we arrived we realized that these reviews were meant to be read with tongue in cheek. Maybe it was the wrong time of the year? A bad weekend for the staff? Or perhaps my DH and I expected too much for a four/five star rating? To... More

My family including 2 children stayed for Labor Day weekend. We had a kitchenette unit and It was perfect for the 4 of us. The pool was lovely, there was lots of room to run around, and we were overlooking the water. My only negatives were I think they use Pine sol to clean and that smell is overwhelming. The... More

Although The Willows is located directly on Rte.1, I was pleasantly surprised to find this sweet property. Scott was wonderful and took my reservation at the last minute. Clean rooms and lovely grounds overlooking a very large salt pond. Enjoyed breakfast each morning in their restaurant with a view. I will return! The nicest thing of all was their willingness...

Great place for a simple, step back in time getaway. We normally stay at a Marriott, but this was perfect for a nice beach weekend. Our kids loved the use of their boats, pool table and ping pong! Reminded me of my vacations in the 70s as a kid. There is nothing fancy about this place, but it is clean,... More

We were looking for a last-minute room and lucked out with The Willows. All the glitzy chains were $300 and up, and 10 - 20 miles from our destination -- Misquamicut and Pt. Judith. For $148 on a Saturday night we were thrilled with the clean room (plus fridge!) and friendly owners. The room may have been older, but it... More
