“Not what to expect from Holiday Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We only stayed there for one night on our way back from Newport to New York and we were not very delighted by this hotel. Check in was not friendly at all, our room was spacious, but neither nicely decorated nor in a good shape - there were thick electrical wires just mounted across the wall and ceiling (guess they had to mount the fire alarm by this means). Internet did not work as well.

Thank you for taking time to write about your recent stay at the Holiday Inn during the Memorial Day Weekend.
We wish the weather would have been sunny and hot but unfortunately the cold rain did cast a cloud over most weekend festivities.
We hope that when the sun is shining and the beaches (which are only a few minutes away) are in full swing, and you will be able to join us again.

Regards

Stayed here off season in the middle of March for a winter get away. The room was dated with a very small bathroom area. The room was clean, secure, and functional with a very good central location to the coastal areas and the college. The staff was pleasant and helpful with our need. It was a good place to spend the night and relax, but don't expect any extras.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear of the building have a view of the wood and locate close to your vehicle.

We are always glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we met your expectations. Hopefully you will be able to enjoy a summer stay / shopping with us.

Our central location is only minutes from the beaches of Narragansett and some of the area’s finest shopping and food.

We booked through Priceline and had expected a bit of a better hotel based on the photos and rating. The exterior and lobby seemed to be renovated but our room was not...it was a very strange thing. The hotel had a old musty smell. It was clean enough. It's an ok hotel but don't have high expectations!

The hotel could use some updating. The laundry service was nice although the dryer needs some refurbishing. Even though the restaurant is not affiliated with the hotel, they allow you to charge to your room. Perfectly OK place to lay your head down for the night.

Hotel a little dated but has a useful guest laundry and lovely pool. A little out of the way for Newport and there's a toll bridge (about 20 mins drive in).
Rooms are a good size.
Restaurant: good food but service was slow.
We always stay at Holiday Inns where we can and know the usual offering. We were told that there wasn't a children's breakfast menu but knowing there was, asked the other server and the menu appeared! Shame there wasnt a buffet breakfat on offer but enjoyed what we ordered.

The hotel itself was average, however the staff were VERY HELPFUL and VERY FRIENDLY!!! From the location you are only 10 minutes to Nantucket, 15 minutes to the Block Island Ferry, and 20 minutes to Newport. The Hotel booking offers a breakfast coupon of $20.00 a day off their Breakfast, however the Hotel will inform you that the restaurant is not owner or operated by Holiday Inn. That being said the breakfast is not worth it, we tried it one morning, and in fact one of the other days they did not even open and left many people having to look elsewhere. Go out to one of the establishments in the area, or the Dunkin Donuts right next door.

I can not say enough good thing about the staff as I listed above excellent, best part of the stay.

Room Tip: The hallways on the first floor have an over the top new paint smell The hotel is a bit dated, but...
