“Nice location, ok room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We stayed in this hotel when visiting Narragansett for a wedding. The location can't be beat! It is directly across from the ocean. We were able to drink our coffee/tea every morning watching the waves, on a bench by the beach. Parking was easy, and there were a few places you could walk to for lunch or breakfast. The room was just ok. It was odd shaped and on the smaller side, even though we booked a full ocean view room. The bathroom was tiny, as was the "balcony." The lighting was poor and the room was as clean as we would have liked. If you want breakfast, skip the continental breakfast they offer in this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly, and at one point they were baking awesome smelling chocolate chip cookies in their lobby (which by the way, was tiny). For the price, you might want to check out a nearby bed and breakfast. For our purposes that weekend, we needed a bed, not to spend time in the room. We enjoyed the location, not the room.

We were so excited to be able to stay so close to Ocean Drive in Narragansett and to be able to see the ocean from our balcony. The location is great, but I don't understand why the owner doesn't spend some bucks to spruce up the place. First of all, as soon as you enter the lobby, the smell hits you. The only way I can describe the smell is a combination of cleaners and vomit. It was awful! The layout of our room was good. We had a nice sitting area that looked out to the ocean as well as a balcony with a good ocean view. However the room was dirty and the carpet needed either a deep cleaning or to be replaced altogether. The bedspeads were dated and I felt uncomfortable sitting on them because they looked dirty, so I pulled them off before laying on the bed. We stayed several days and the housekeeping person told my husband that we would get new towels but we would have to make the beds. Two of the days we stayed there, the manager was working the breakfast area and emptying garbage. The breakfast was fair. It wasn't until the third day did we see a person working the breakfast area and she offered us hot waffles. The waffle maker was not out and available for us to make our own. We won't stay there again but it's too bad, this place could be wonderful if it just got a facelift.

ROOM - booked the ocean view room for an extra $40 per night. Spectacular view. The room had a kitchenette, large bathroom, tiny balcony & plenty of living space. The whirlpool tub did not work properly but a maintenance man repaired it the second day. Be aware there is an outdoor bar & restaurant directly below the ocean view rooms. Although the bar closes at 1am, we were able to hear conversations amongst the bar crowd. Cigarette smoke rises up & the ocean breeze carries it into your room. If you don't mind the noise, pay the extra cash for the sunrise.
STAFF - the young lady (Erin) I booked the stay with was wonderful answering all my questions & assisting w/directions. Room service was casual but on the ball. Bar staff was friendly & went out of their way to help me. GM was very personable. Good job.

Overall I would return. The inn is located a short walk from the beach & some nice restaurants. MUST eat breakfast at Crazy Burger.

I recommend this hotel the place is nice, and very well located to everything from the beach to dinning not alot of need to drive to get to most of what you need. The rooms clean, and well kept by the maids. The front desk staff is very nice, and we were very happy with the woman who was running the breakfeast. The indoor pool gives you great insurance should mother nature give you poor beach weather the kids actually did both the beach, and the pool in the eve.

This is our third year staying at this great getaway spot so close to our beautiful coastline. This year we stayed 4 nights! that is how much we enjoy staying here. This hotel is full of hospitality, the staff are pleasant and greet you with a smile and a hello as you come and go throughout your stay. We love the ocean view rooms that offer that little extra space(mini suite). It is perfect! Plenty of room to move and relax... The continental breakfast is great. The hostess/host do a nice job with providing food and good service to all(even when there is a long line for the waffles- which seem to be the case each morning:). I must say that the indoor pool is a favorite of my 2 granddaughters. We had a bit of a challenge limiting there swim time so we could get to the beach!! they would have stayed in the pool all day if they were planning the days events... I can't say enough about this great little spot close to everything-beach,village to shop,Dunkin Donuts(a favorite of my son's). I can't forget the beautiful sunrises as well as the sunsets(a picture in my mind to last me til next summer). Thank you again Village Inn for a wonderful stay! We will be back again next year.

we have been to the VI for the last 3 years and love it. Everyone goes out of their way to accomodate, rooms are clean and the location is unbeatable. We love going to the shops and being able to walk to great restaurants and the beach. We have referred many friends and will continue to do so. Looking forward to August 2013!!

Room Tip: The rooms with ocean views are incredible.

Went for a Girls' weekend and prob. won't go back. Rooms are stated as re done... i think they just painted and that's about it. We had a 14 year old boy take care of us and he was the one cleaning the rooms as well.... needless to say the sand was still in the tub when he was done, the extra blanket that was used from the closet was thrown on the floor in the corner.. weird... and our table in our sitting area was broken. The real kicker is that after we all got home after spending 3 days there - we were all sick. Sore throat, swollen glands, stuffy, coughing... i don't think it's a coinsidence - i think it was the dirty room.
Won't be back.

Room Tip: good location to find places to eat and walk along the water - have to pay $6 per person to go on th...
