“Better than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

My boyfriend & I stayed here over Columbus Day weekend. We chose it for location to Newport & Block Island. I have to admit I was a little worried after reading the reviews. It turned out to be a decent place to stay. The rooms were dated but clean. Not spotless but not scary. Beds were comfortable and we had clean towels & toiletries. The pool was very nice & very warm. There was some garbage in a barrel near the pool area that could have been emptied but as it was the end of the season there seemed to be only 2 people working there. I would recommend to management to have Dunkin Donuts lease your empty restaurant as there are zero breakfast places in the area and with all the Ferry traffic & people parking at the hotel, it would be a very successful venture. There is seagull poop (some people freaked out about that) but the hotel is directly across the street from the harbor where the seagulls live so you get the good with the bad. I would imagine it would be busier in the summer but a great place for families.

Took my 2 nieces and nephew to the Lighthouse Inn in Galilee for a little get away before they went back to school. They had no idea where they were going so it was a surprise for them! We had a ball. Went to the beach all day out for dinner and ice cream and swam in the pool until closing! The place is old and worn, but they do there best to keep it clean. The pool area was great and we had a room right at poolside! I'm sure that place was great in it's day! Linens & towels were clean. We were not there for the hotel, but for the beach so we loved it because we walked everywhere we went. They want to go back next summer so I guess the "Mystery Trip" was a hit! :)

Room Tip: If you have kids that like the pool get a room poolside!

Recently had a friend’s wedding in the area and a block of rooms where booked after the holiday inn had messed up the reservations for the wedding party. I decided to stay over last minute and was very pleased to still have rooms available.

The good- The rooms we had all overlooked the pool area which we were able to use after the wedding until the wee hours of the morning. That was GREAT; I have never seen a hotel with that type of group accommodation before. The staff where friendly, let us checks in a little early and gave us great suggestions for breakfast places.

The Bad- This is where I think if the hotel put a little more effort could really bring the quality of the stay up, the cleanliness of the rooms. The beds were made and the room seemed vacuumed but the attention to detail was not there. We found candy wrappers behind the head board and a fair share of dust around the TV and on the furniture.

The Ugly- In our room and there was a moist / moldy smell. I am not sure if this is because of the close proximity to the pool but if the room had a deep clean and an investment in a dehumidifier and maybe new carpets.

We were part of a wedding party that reserved 16 rooms this past weekend at the Light House Inn. Unbelievable to say the least. We check in and got to our room, the floor obviously had not been vacuumed in a while. My husband goes to wash his hands and it was obvious the sink area has not been touched by housekeeping for days. We then discover we have no towels, tissues, anything. I call the front desk and ask for housekeeping to come up with towels and clean the room. The person at the front desk said, “um, I am the only one on today so I will bring you towels when I get time.” Time!!! It is 8 p.m. at night and no one cleaned our room.

I walk downstairs and then proceed to follow the front desk person into the laundry room to get towels from the dryer. I then return to my room where my husband has turned down the sheets to inspect the last time the sheets have been changed. Obviously not anytime in the past 3 days. There were a TON of bodily fluids on the sheets. The top sheet looked like a porn had been filmed right there. We checked out about 10 mins later and stayed elsewhere.

When we arrived our room had not been cleaned completely. Looks like they made the beds and vaccummed but didn't blean the sink and counters and stock with towels, etc. After a number of trips to the front desk we got what we needed. They offered to move us but the next room wasn't much better so we cleaned up. It seemed that there was no one there to help out. The manager was very nice the next day. The exterior needs a lot of work. Love the location though

While everything was sold out for the Newport Folk Festival, this was really the only option left in the area that didn't jack up their rates. Rooms are outdated and could use an update, but I'm sure the staff knows that. Pool was indoors and nice, although closed a bit early for my liking. Best part was the proximity to Point Judith beach and a few bars (which aren't that great). Being this close to area beaches and restaurants was great, and definitely worth it for a stop over with a group of friends.

Room Tip: Definitely go with one on the outer perimeter of the building - I'd imagine the pool would get t...

Check in was quick and easy. The staff was extremely helpful with dining recommendations and area attractions. The lobby has a beautiful fish pond which the staff let my son feed the fish. He was in heaven! The pool area is just breathtaking it makes you think you are on a tropical island. The entire hotel was clean and comfortable one of the best nights sleep we have ever had! If your heading to Galilee/Block island this is your place to stay. We walked to dinner and the beach it was a great experience for our entire family! Can not wait until next year.
