A girlfriend and I decided to do a road trip up to Block Island, and then Newport. If possible I always prefer to book hotels right on the ocean. This looked decent enough so we booked for Friday into Saturday. Due to traffic, we were going to arrive there later than we expected so I called the hotel and explained... More

We made reservations for a Friday and Saturday night in October. We arrived at 6:30 pm and our room was not ready. The excuse was a computer issue. No key was available. We came back 1 1/2 hours later and the room door was open and no one was around. The room was not clean, no toilet paper, no phone,... More

I stayed here due to the location of a race I was running in town, and the fact that it was directly on the beach. After checking in we went to our room. While walking to the room I noticed a lot of clutter, trash, and a dirty smell. When I got into the room at first glance I thought... More

We made a reservation through Hotels.com where they said our credit card number was only being used to hold the room. The following night 50% of the full charge was taken from our card. We were alarmed and wanted to cancel reservation Immediately. We talked with the owner/manager, he said if we canceled through Hotels.com he would refund us our... More

We arrived at Sandy Shore at 6pm,so the room should have been clean by then.It was pretty gross. Floors were dirty and sandy,and there was leftover food in the cabinent and fridge. No ice ,cups, nothing. We got the grand suite-lol, quite the joke. Not a suite, just to really beat up rooms, with tired, old beds. Cracked tiles,dirty walls.Only... More

This motel, located right on Misquamicut Beach in Westerly, RI, is a basic, independent roadside motel that features great ocean views and is just steps to the beach and ocean. The rooms were clean, provide the most basic amenities, including a good, old lumpy mattress, but you won't go wrong on location and price ! The staff was friendly, there... More

Room was clean. Beach was very nice. My family loved it. We are planning to go back though the rooms are pricey. We had a deluxe room it had two double beds also a small table and two chairs. Enough room for four adults but not extra large. It had a small frig and microwave and a coffee maker but... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of summer-last week of August. The week nights were fine, but Friday night was LOUD with very LOUD music and drunken arguments and talking RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR ROOM til wee hours. The rooms have no phones to call "front desk" to complain. There is very little furniture in the suite. For 4... More

The area was devastated a few years ago by superstorm Sandy. That's the only reason I'm giving the benefit of the doubt with one star. We checked in, stepped inside the room and checked out. Quickly. I had already gotten a very creepy vibe from the outdoor bar...the clientele, staff, decor, music,--the whole picture. As for the rest of the... More

The room was small but fairly clean. The fact that it was on the beach was the only good point. Front desk staff was unorganized and not overly friendly. When our room was supposedly finally ready, there were NO Towels. We had to ask for them. And all they gave us was 2 bath towels and one hand towel. NO... More
