Decent B&B, but didn't meet our expectation -- from reviews we thought close to I-95, but didn't realize inn was right on top of highway. Rooms clean, roomy with decent bathrooms, but bring your own TP as the sandpaper supplied was harsh. (Note to innkeeper -- splurge on a better product -- I'd be willing to pay an extra dollar/night... More

We called an hour before the office closed, found vacancy and stayed two nights. This old house has all the necessary amenities to enjoy your stay, huge rooms with high ceiling, excellent breakfast that you find only in good diners and welcoming team. Although close to I-95 the rooms are very quite and we slept well. The neighborhood is calm... More

This was a beautiful inn. I loved the room. It was big and roomy and overlooked the city. I walked to the State house and Providence Place Mall with no trouble. We did have noise from the freeway when the A/C was turned off. Would stay here again.

We were greeted by a warm, friendly staff member. She showed us the inn. It is beautifully decorated with period furniture and decorations. The accommodations were very nice, large room very comfortable. The location is on the east side of Providence. A short ride to Federal Hill and the Citizens Plaza and River walk. There is so much to due... More

The Christopher Dodge a house is beautiful. Our room has bricked walls, a beautiful gas burning fireplace, gorgeous dark wood floors, with nice mission stylish furnishings. The bath is on the small side and the toilet is a little slow to flush. The location is right across the freeway, literally from the Rhode Island State House and the fun Providence... More

Just returned home from Providence for RISD Graduation. A lovely little place to call home for a couple of nights! The bonus plan was having a manager who grew up in Morgan City not far from my hometown. Not sure about the complaints of city noise, we were in a fabulous room overlooking the city at night and we thought... More

This B&B has some of the best staff that I have seen, very welcoming and informative. Our room was nice, but right across from the office allowing for a lot of traffic and noise.

I loved the idea of staying in a New England B&B. Was looking forward to lots of charm and delicious breakfast. The staff provided the charm, but the house itself was unforgettable. There was musty smell in the main entrance (which we'd had a hard time finding) and in our room. While in Providence, it is a far walk to... More

We've stayed here off and on for 8 years, since our son was at Brown. The rooms are cheerful and comfortable and very homey. We love the fireplaces that heat the room in winter. (They are electric, I believe). It's very quiet, except for hum of traffic from a highway, but we've never found that to be an issue. The... More
