This was our first trip to RI. We got in late at night because of the big snowstorm in mid Feb in New England.
Emily, the night person was very friendly and helpful. She helped my daughter order some Chinese takeout while my wife and I went to De Wolf next door.
The place is very clean and there are some great views if you get a room on the parking lot side of the building. It's a great location, you're right on the bay. The bathroom was very clean and larger than a typical motel would have. The room was comfortable and my only complaint was being located next to a hallway door. It was opened and closed many times, early in the morning, slamming each time Either a guest or the cleaning staff, that was annoying.
The day staff was also very friendly and helpful. It is the winter and they are slow so maybe they have more time to spend with the guests and help out. I heard that this town is packed in the summer. I can see why.
The town of Bristol is very quaint, with lots of great houses and walking opportunities. Newport is close by too, but we were out of time and I definately want to come back for more of this beautiful area. BTW the tavern next door, De Wolf, is fantastic, great atmosphere and Sai(sp?) the chef there creates some extraordinary dishes. Don't miss the apple pie dessert!
