We just spent Thanksgiving here. We had a wonderful time. Our room overlooked the beach, just a few steps and you have a great boardwalk and beach to enjoy. The rooms and bathrooms are kind of small but comfortable, with a microwave and refrigerator. The tv is new, there is free wireless, and it is very affordable, especially in the... More

Spent the night with my family at the Motel. Beautiful location, very clean room, good service. No frills, yet that's what a motel is for. Absolutely a winner. No hesitation to recommend to friends or family.

If you are a RI beach person on a budget this is the place for you. The owners are wonderful and go out of their way to accommodate your stay. Rooms are clean. Second floor is the best. Parking is easy. You are less than 10 min from several beaches and right across the street from the state beach. Best... More

My family booked a late night fishing trip on the spur of the moment, and we were not going to get back until 1:00 a.m., so we hurried with about 10 minutes to find a room. Sorry to do this, as I have never written a poor review on anything before, but it was so disappointing, I felt I needed... More

We have been coming to Club G for years for a long weekend in the summer. Never mind what Club G stands for. The fact is, the location is the best. If you're looking for something right across from a RI State Beach, that is a slight upgrade from spending the night in a rented camper, the Scar. Beach Motel... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and grandson in a 2 double bed unit. The room smelled musty, but to be fair, being that close to the ocean will likely result in a musty smell. Aside from the dampness, there are no hair dryers or coffeemakers in the rooms. Coffee - regular only - is available in... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this motel and although it was clean, there were some drawbacks. First, i'm 6'2" and they had full sized beds with very uncomfortable mattresses so if you're a tall person, i suggest looking elsewhere. The shower had very low water pressure and the bathroom, overall, was adequate. The AC kept turning on and off,... More

Location was pretty good. The room was average for your "mom and pop" beach motel. Our big complaint was no hot water in evening, and I was told that was normal according to the manager. I did not agree with that at all. If they run out of hot water maybe they need to upgrade the water heating system.The bathroom... More

I was just here last weekend I have to say it was nothing like I had expected. I needed somewhere inexpensive in that location, so after reading many negative reviews I decided I would take a chance since it was only for one night. I have to say that I was more than pleasantly surprised. It was clean and had... More

We missed the last ferry to Block Island and the more upscale motels were booked, so Scarborough Beach it was. No complaints about the price--$79. And really, no complaints--we got our $79 worth. Don't look for extras like refrigerator, coffee maker, even little plastic glasses in cellophane--ain't gonna happen. On the other hand, fast free internet. You're not going to... More
