Stayed here last weekend. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms were very spacious. I was disappointed that the windows and balcony door didn't have screens. I was looking forward to sleeping with the windows open to hear the ocean and feel the breeze. The only other negative thing is the restaurant was closed. I never thought they would close it prior to the last weekend. This was a huge disappointment because it would have been very relaxing to have breakfast there instead of going to crowded places in town. I feel for the price we paid for after Labor Day it should have been opened.
Loved Watch Hill and Misquamicut Beach area, and this was a great boutique hotel in a perfect location for singles, families, and couples. Unfortunately Spa and Restaurant were closed, but I was glad to access the Sunset Club just for lounging during a rainy day. The bikes are a nice amenity at no charge, and I enjoyed the bath products + breakfast treats. Overall the room felt very new and clean. My only complaint was the inside of the sofa bed mattress had a hair and couple of minor stains on it. Additionally, the Lobby large television playing FOX News all day felt divisive and uncomfortable for some guests... not so welcoming nor relaxing to walk into. However, I noticed when a new staff member came in, it was thankfully a different channel.
Every year, my wife, try’s to surprise me with a birthday getaway. This year she took me to Maria’s Hotel, in Misquamicut RI. Well let me tell you, it was fabulous, the room was to much and had every amenities you would want. The ocean side balcony was entertaining and beautiful. We sleep with the doors open, listening to the ocean all night. We went to the restaurant and were thoroughly pleased with the outstanding device and food. The second night we had veal chops Delivered for room service, Why leave this ocean side view??? Everything was perspective, thank you to all. We will be back soon. JN
Another successful summer vacation staying at the Hotel Maria in Westerly RI. The Pandemic was handle very professionally. Everything was just perfect. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Next summer planning on 2 trips.
I changed my rating from a three to a four using the theory of relativity as a rationale. Compared to the several hotels in the area we’ve now stayed or eaten in over the last week on this trip, the Maria is far more finely appointed. also, I think everyone needs a big fat covid break. Still, I was taken aback by the lack of service or, rather, some of the insouciant attitudes we encountered at the Maria. There was about 1/3 of a roll of tp in the room upon arrival and no replacement roll. I ordered what I thought would be a pot of coffee (it did say “pod” but I thought that was a new term for a small pot or something lol). When I called for the tp, I was brought a paper bag with a nespresso pod and spoon set up, which were already in the room. Natalia brought these items, and she and John were about the only genuinely friendly and welcoming folks. Oh, and the young valet was sweet. What irked me the most was trying to eat at the hotel’s restaurant. Granted, it’s a popular spot and purported to be excellent, but we could not get a reservation until after 9. When we tried to book for the next day instead, only 5pm was available. This happens. I was frustrated though because I thought deference might have been given to hotel guests, at least to some degree. It was really the “yeah, that’s all we have, too bad” attitude of the several employees I talked to that angered me. I’ve since found out that you can reserve thru resy.com, which just MIGHT have been good to know when we checked in. We were ambling up from the beach that night and were hoping to sit for some clams or oysters on the half only to find that we could do so if we wanted to wait three hours. We would have reserved at check in (which was available on line, with options for breakfast and service ordering—why not mention the restaurant resy to guests at that time?) if we had known. Coincidentally, we are eating there tonight with friends who really wanted to go there—I might find the food is good enough to overlook feeling passed over as a guest. If not, another 4?…
