This is a very difficult review to write because Chris, the manager, was terrific and the Blue Whale was not. Chris was a staff of one. She was friendly, informative and very helpful. Our room though was tired, tiny- barely fitting a double bed- with no closet, cracked floor tiles, poor lighting, and no place to sit or place luggage... More

We were really excited to visit Misquamicut, as we had never been there before. And we really wanted to like this place, but it was impossible to do in the end (Ended up checking out early). The owner of the hotel is very nice, like the other reviews say, but that is not the problem (that's its one saving grace).... More

We are a bit mystified by your disparaging review of your extremely short stay with us. Your experience is certainly not the norm when it comes to the usual experience at our inn, which can be evidenced by countless other reviews and by consecutive years of being awarded the prestigious TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence'. We always appreciate helpful feedback, as... More

My husband and I needed a little getaway and stayed here and it was the best decision we made! The rooms were nice and very clean, bed very comfy. What made this experience very pleasant was the hospitality of the owner Christine. She welcomed us with cracker and cheese platter and wine! She was very attentive and made sure we... More

I have been renting in Misquamicut for years and have finally found the motel I will return to year after year. Although the rooms are small, they are immaculate and well appointed. Each room is decorated different with lots of personal touches. They feel like a bedroom at home not in a motel. What really sets this place apart is... More

Christine had a bottle of Champagne and a little cake ready for our check-in. The breakfast is a beautiful buffet, the wine and cheese with fruit is a perfect after dinner snack. The location is walking distance to beautiful state beaches. The outdoor shower is awesome, rooms are clean and beds are super comfy. So friendly and relaxing

... It's the hospitality that makes this place truly great. Christine really goes above and beyond to ensure that guests have the best stay ever. I can't wait to come back to the Blue Whale, and the next time I plan to bring the rest of my family.

This Inn is within walking distance of the beach in Misquamicut. But, you have to set your expectations. This is a beach cottage type of place, not a boutique hotel. The rooms are cute, but things are well worn. Chris, the owner, went out of her way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Breakfast, which is served outside,... More
