I stayed here for 8 nights and was very pleased. There is excellent access to the highways in all directions. The grounds are immaculate & inviting. There are multiple buildings/rooms to chose from. I selected the one bedroom suite with kitchenette, which is the best option, and only slightly higher is price. I called the hotel directly - Preena will...

With hotel/motel prices being exorbitant in Middletown/Newport this time of year, this motel is more affordable. But still, the rooms are not cheap by any means. For the price, I would expect all the light bulbs and lamps to be in working order, higher quality towels, a coffee maker that worked as it should (the carafe was too small so...

This is an older motel which is kept up well. We stayed here while visiting Newport and found it met our needs very well. It is nicely landscaped, the bed was comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean and functional. The staff was very friendly and made some helpful recommendations about restaurants nearby.

Stopped here last minute on our way into Newport. All of Newport was booked. This place was great. It's basically like your own little apartment. Staff was amazingly friendly and courteous. Would definitely stay again. The ac was ice cold and the kitchen was stocked for all your needs.

We were looking for an affordable last minute place to stay in southern Rhode Island on a summer weekend and found the Founder's Brook Motel. Based on the reviews here, my expectations were low but they proved wrong. The room was comfortable, spacious, clean and had everything that we needed. The location, between Tiverton and Newport is convenient to explore...

We wanted a place in Bristol and the one other hotel in Bristol was closed for renovations. Our room was clean except for the rug that was filthy. The room is definitely not your typical hotel room. It was small. The bed was comfortable. It is near a busy road ,but the noise did not affect our sleep. I would...

Near to main highways to Newport, and Fall River, RI ; 20 minute drive to historical homes and downtown Newport. Nearby to restaurants and museums. Staff were friendly and helpful, good value.

I am from Portsmouth RI, I've stayed here twice since coming back for a visit. While the owner/front desk ladies are very nice and very helpful, they really need to make some repairs to the buildings. The beds are very uncomfortable to sleep on. If you do not get an efficieny suite, you will not get anything but 2 beds...
