On the last night of a foliage trip through New England we decided to stay in Narragansett to be nearer to the airport we flew into. Even in October it can be a challenge to find an affordable room here for a night. I found a deal for a room at this motel here on TripAdvisor and

The Anchor Motel is a classic family owned old school motel. The motel is right across the street from the beach and parking is strictly for motel guests. The motel is very clean and comfortable. Right on Ocean Road, it's centrally located for an easy drive to restaurants.

My husband, teen son and I stayed here a few days ago. We stayed in the room with the king bed. They offered a cot for our son or we could bring a blow up mattress for him which saved us $15 a night. The place is lovely, clean and owners are very helpful & accommodating.

is smoking allowed on balconies?
Yes, smoking outside is OK as long and your window and door are closed so that no smoke gets into the room. Thank you!

Wow thanks, Charles!! Charles is absolutely correct. Most rooms have two double beds and all have an ocean view, wi-fi, fridge, A/C, tv and a small porch. In the office we have a microwave and free coffee each morning. The closest vineyard is in Newport, about a 30 minute drive with summer traffic. We begin taking reservations for July & August on March 1st @ 7am! Thank you for contacting us via TripAdvisor!

Not a lot of difference between our standard rooms and our B&B rooms. They have a similar set up but the B&B rooms are larger and therefore have two queen beds in each. The B&B rooms also share a common area and a very large porch so there is more space to spread out. But the standard rooms are a little closer to the beach so the ocean view is slightly better. The B&B rooms tend to be quieter but this area of Narragansett is pretty quiet overall anyways. Hope this helps! Christine Manager The Anchor Motel

can I bring a miniature shitzu dog, very well behaved?
Hi! We allow dogs October through April only, when we are less busy. Feel free to bring one then but please type it in to the request box when you reserve online so that we know in advance (so we don't put you near someone with allergies, etc). Thank you!
