We had room #11. We were told there were better rooms, but not for that night. August 15th, 2015. The room was in dire need of repair/redecorating. The beds were as hard as stone and the water in the bathroom sink was a trickle. Shower water was tepid, never hot Air conditioner was very loud and people in next room... More

I am from Portsmouth RI, I've stayed here twice since coming back for a visit. While the owner/front desk ladies are very nice and very helpful, they really need to make some repairs to the buildings. The beds are very uncomfortable to sleep on. If you do not get an efficieny suite, you will not get anything but 2 beds... More

Some I wipe the remote and throw the comforter in the corner. Currently, back and forth between Philly and Tiverton for upkeep on my rental property. Here is my take... More

The front desk staff could not have been nicer or more helpful when I went back-and-forth about my reservation. She really went out of her way to be helpful. She allowed me to check in an hour early in order to change clothing for a special occasion. If this review was based on the front desk personnel alone I would... More

My son recently got married in Portsmouth, RI, and family were attending from Pennsylvania Ohio, and Florida. I was not familiar with the area to know where to make arrangements for all of us. My son suggested Founder's Brook Motel and I had called 6 months before the wedding to start the plans. From my first call, and through all... More

I have stayed at this motel twice within a few months and had a great experience both times. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great location as well. The efficiency suites were perfect for my friends and I. We had plenty of space, refrigerators in the rooms, and parking right outside our door. We had a great time and will definitely... More

This was the second time I stayed at this motel. It is so convenient for me as my son lives just 5 minutes away. It is a very comfortable, homie motel. We stayed in the efficiency room which is really nice and spacious. The beds are very comfortable and the room is always so nice and clean. I highly recommend... More

I stayed there recently and the people are super nice. The rooms are dated and needs work, but it was quiet and restful. Also a great location out of the hustle bustle of the large cities, but still close enough to get around. I will be staying there again when I am in that area.
