We wanted a place in Bristol and the one other hotel in Bristol was closed for renovations. Our room was clean except for the rug that was filthy. The room is definitely not your typical hotel room. It was small. The bed was comfortable. It is near a busy road ,but the noise did not affect our sleep. I would... More

Stayed in a large, clean and well maintained 1 bedroom suite, with 2 beds. Quiet neighborhood, grounds are nice looking and well kept up. Near to main highways to Newport, and Fall River, RI ; 20 minute drive to historical homes and downtown Newport. Nearby to restaurants and museums. Staff were friendly and helpful, good value.

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

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
