Called for room, was told 75.00. Booked online, got it for 54.00. Not worth even that amount. Got there about 5:30pm, went to office, no one there. Door locked, banged and banged on door, no one came. There was an outside phone but when I dialed 0, it just kept ringing. I fortunately had the printout with their phone #... More

I travel to RI often and always stay at SDI. This is a family owned hotel which is one of the nicer places in the town of Westerly. It is operated by a husband wife couple; Donna and KK, who treat their guests like family and will go way above and beyond to make you feel as comfortable as possible.... More

There was cobwebs and bugs needed to be vacuumed up. The place needs an overall updating~! The owner was nice, but their continental breakfast was kind of unconventional! It was very uncomfortable sleeping mattress and the room needs to be updated the doors and different areas need to be fixed!

Well, it wasn't the perfect weekend for the beach but it did not destroyed our staying at Sand Dollar Inn just because the owners and staff were so friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast too... The room was simple but very clean and this inn was close to everything.... I recommend and would stay again.

We stayed in the efficiency. It was awful. Nothing felt clean. The fridge had no shelves. The freezer had mold growing in it. Just super yuck. A few hundred bucks investment would have made a huge difference...but I guess the management doesn't care. The continental breakfast was poor. It just was not good. Unpleasant stay.

This place is genuinely unsanitary at times. Their shower caused me to get a terrible rash; the shower head wouldn't adjust so I couldn't wash the soap off myself. That may not sound like a serious problem, but when you can't wash yourself, its simply disgusting. Their beds smelt strange as did the entire room. When we got back from... More

I booked two rooms for my friends to enjoy a one-night stay at the beach. Given that I had reserved these rooms, I saw no issue with changing the name of the reservations. To my surprise, when I called to change the names after learning I couldn't do it online, the lady answered was rude, not forgiving and wouldn't even... More

On our last trip to RI, we stop at this charming motel, not too far from the beach. It was very clean and quiet. The couple who own this place are more than accomodating. On our next trip to Westerly, RI. it will be our place again.
