The neighborhood is a bit rundown but it's close enough to walk to a lot of shopping, tourist places, and dining so worth the stay. The staff are pleasant and the manager is great. It's an old old house and smells musty - my allergies really bothered me. The first night we did not hear the highway which is close... More

Great place to stay in Providence. The room was clean and comfortable and location was in walking distance of downtown. The staff was wonderful to deal with which made our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious, coffee and cookies were available all day long. If you stay in Providence stay here.

We stayed in the Christopher Dodge house for our son's college graduation. We were greeted with cupcakes in the room. Very comfortable and clean. Even though the inn is next to the freeway which worried us it was quite quiet and it is on a nice quiet street. The breakfasts were delicious and cheerfully served. My only complaint is that...

This charmingly restored 19th century building is conveniently located near Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design and downtown Providence. The rooms are large, well equipped with TV, gas fire place, mini fridge. There is a lounge with a computer, drinks and snacks. The staff are friendly and efficient.

My daughter and I stayed in this lovely B&B in Providence for only one night, but I wish we could have stayed longer. Although we arrived somewhat late (8:30ish), our welcome was warm and check in was a cinch. Once the clerk showed us to our room, she gave us a tour of the premises. They offer complimentary baked goodies,... More

Lovely spot to stay while visiting Providence. My garden level room had a decent sized bathroom with a cozy gas fireplace and was impeccably clean. Breakfast was lovely too. Coffee and tea and snack available in the lounge area. Just across the highway from the providence Place mall and convention center. Highly recommended.

We had room G3, which is a very large ground floor room (king size bed, two arm chairs, bureau, desk, mini fridge, and tv). This B&B is right beside Interstate 95, but the road noise didn't disturb us. I think the fact that the ground floor is not completely above ground combined with the fence next to the highway helped... More

Wow- what a beautiful Bed and Breakfast, and within walking distance of Brown University. When we arrived, Ms. Alynne met us, and made us feel right at home.

I only spent one night, but enjoyed my stay very much. The room was large, very comfortable, and the gas fireplace (thermostat-controlled) created a wonderful cozy atmosphere on a very cold and snowy day. The breakfast room is also very nice. I loved the style with exposed brick walls, dark wood (but simple) furniture, and many lovely details in how... More
