What a great affordable place to stay. A wonderful waterfront view with comfortable chairs outside to relax and watch the water. Clean, comfortable and quiet rooms with WIFI and cable TV and plenty of parking. A great location and minutes from Newport. The owner I talked to was so nice and accommodating, she was very helpful.

We really enjoyed our visit. The room was clean and quiet. The mattress was very firm and comfortable. The view of Easton Pond is lovely. The hotel is older, and there are no fancy amenities. But there is free Wi-Fi, and a flat screen TV, a refrigerator and microwave, and plenty of hot water. My only suggestion is that the... More

I have been on the road for over 3 years. I've visited 101 cities and reviewed 213 hotels and restaurants. This motel is not new. This motel is not fancy. This motel brings me back to my childhood! Road trips to the Poconos with my grandparents. Our cottage on the Cape. It's simple. It's clean. It's convenient to Easton Beach.... More

Gotta' give the Sea Whale the three "C's". Clean, comfortable and convenient! This hotel is very reasonably priced and provides quick access to Newport. The cliff walk is within walking distance, albeit not a short walk. However, just a short walk from the hotel is Flo's Clam Shack...good seafood joint! The owner checked us in to the hotel and made... More

We were very happy with this motel. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. No complaints whatsoever!

Great place to stay! The owners are on the property and are very helpful with great suggestions on where to go, eat, drink and sit on beach. The accommodations were great and the location is perfect. We would definitely recommend this place to stay.

Has a pretty view of Easton Pond, short walking distance to the beaches and cliff walk. It's the perfect, affordable little get-away motel. It's in a great spot to get anywhere you want to be in Newport for the weekend. Situated just feet away from the best fried clams in New England at Flo's Clam Shack.

This trip I came with my friend for a girls getaway. I've stay here before and thought it would be a good choice for this trip. It was. Terri is very friendly and the motel and grounds are extremely clean. Everything you need is there. Love the deck room with a gorgeous view of the pond. Close to the beach,... More
