We weren't sure what to expect from the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised! The 2 gals at the front desk were so friendly and helpful giving us a list of nearby places to eat. This motel was the only one in the area that would allow us to leave our 3 little dogs in our room while we attended... More

Was afraid of what to expect after reading the reviews. It is true that the place needs updating. But for a about 100$/night we got a very clean room with a microwave and decent-sized fridge, gift cards to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and a welcome bag with bottled water/fruits/candies. There is a lawn in front of the property with picnic... More

Perfectly acceptable – we enjoyed it very much. Old-style motel probably built in the 50s (tiled bathrooms – ours was pink tile , standing showers). But sparklingly clean, and comfortable. Beds comfortable. Wi-Fi excellent! Very dog friendly. And very friendly staff/owners. Nicely landscaped with lovely pots filled with flowers. Has a “family-run” feel to it. If you don’t need something... More

What an adorable place! Room was spacious -- you walk in to a little sitting area and then up into the room. Smelled of smoke even though it was nonsmoking. :( Across the parking lot is a grassy area with a couple tables to sit and a flower garden. We had our puppy run around as it's right off a... More

If you don't need 24 hour concierge and room service but want charm and value this is the place to stay on all of Aquidneck Island! It might not be on the water (but it's a straight shot to get to the beaches) but the fact that Frosty Freeze is right across the street adds a +10 during the summer... More

Nice, unassuming little motel, tucked about 10 minutes away from the mansions, wharfs, and shopping districts of Newport. Staff was exceedingly courteous, rooms were pretty big. The double bed room had a separate little room by the door with a sofa and refrigerator. The king size bed room had a larger bathroom but no extra room - did have two... More

Not anywhere near the top of our list of motels we stayed in during our three-week trip, maybe near the bottom. It was an old, in need of repair motel. The room was big, but that is about the only good part. Oh, it did have a frig and microwave, but no breakfast...we got Dunkin Donuts gift cards.

I booked a last minute overnight at the Inn, in order to attend a Newport Polo match. It was reasonably priced, yet it looked a bit old from the pictures. When we arrived, I seriously had detective tv show flashes. It looked like a motel straight out of crime scene, meaning small L-shaped motel, with the front entrances facing the... More

We just wrapped up a NE road trip of 2 weeks to see the vaunted fall colors ("leaf peepers"). This inn fell into the category that we pursued of "best value, clean, and a good comfortable bed, and near the center of our location interest." That usually amounts to older 50's motels that have been updated and have a motivated... More

I was going to Newport to see a friends band. The hotels are expensive, I found this on Hotels.com. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean & comfortable. The reception was so friendly. It was approx 3 miles to downtown, so we took a taxi for $9.
