This little gem never disappoints. The place only has 14 rooms or so and is family owned. Nice, clean rooms, right across a 2 lane street from the Atlantic Ocean, quiet location with a family who couldn't be friendlier. We love this place! And we'll definitely be back next month( if they have any vacancies)

We just returned from a short stay (3 nights). This was our first time and we weren't disappointed. The location is perfect...right across from the beach. You can wake up and see the ocean. I had my morning coffee while I sat outside of our room in the small sitting area. Coffee and donuts are provided by the staff every... More

This is a small motel directly opposite the ocean and has several convenient restaurant that I have recently reviewed for TA. The only thing that would spoil our weekend just did when it rained on Saturday and Sunday. Can't blame the motel for the weather but that is what spoiled it for us this trip.

Clean, friendly and so close to the beach, have watched the improvements over the years (been visiting since 2007) TV's have been upgraded, hair dryers added to rooms, fluffier towels, nice mugs available foe the fresh coffee made every morning and a choice of creamers, it gets better every year. Couldn't ask for a better place!

It's not the Ritz, but it is very comfortable. In this part of Narragansett, there aren't many motels. The Anchor is clean, comfortable bed, no cobwebs or chipping/peeling paint. I definitely would come again. The location is excellent.

An updated old fashion motel across the street from Scarborough State Beach. It was a last minute decision to travel to RI and we were glad to have found this motel. Very clean and comfortable with a refrigerator and a separate area for the sink. We Love that they are "green".

This motel is great for it's proximity to the beach. The beds were a bit firm for my taste and the tub didn't drain well. I would definitely return with my wife but unsure if there would be enough room for a small child who requires a crib or pack n play.

My husband and I were so glad we found this place. The prices were great. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The owner was friendly and helpful. He was more than happy to answer questions about the towns history and recommended places to eat. More than satisfied with this sweet motel.

Could not have found a better place in Narragansett or Newport. Super clean family-owned hotel. Gene is terrific. Had coffee and doughnuts in the office each morning of our 4 day stay. Easy ride into Newport. Directly across the street from a great beach. Enjoyed walking in the area on the beach, paths along the beach, and on the walker-friendly... More
