My student Daughter offered my 3 nights at this place when I went to visit her for her birthday and had negotiated with the owner that she could come the second morning have breakfast with me. When I arrived, the place was clean (old place that needs serious repairs) but the owner (a British woman) wasn't nice and was kind... More

This accommodation is very basic. The furniture is quaint, but uncomfortable. There is no TV in the rooms. Also, there is a lot of street noise from the cars and the window coverings don't block the sunlight, so you can't really sleep past 7 o'clock. The place was in need of repair when I was there. The main ceiling on... More

From a great location near a terrific part of Providence called Wayland Square and within walking distance of Brown and RISD, this is a perfect clean quiet and well located oasis in Providence. We come at least once a year and it's always up to snuff with the little details that make a great stay. Annie the inn keeper is... More

Our stay at Annie Brownell House felt like home from home. It is in a wonderful convenient location and our room was very clean and the bed sumptuous. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and varied. Annie the proprietor was very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We chose this B&B because of its affordability and proximity to Brown. When we arrived we Annie, the proprietor told us that her staff quit and she was training someone new so our room was not ready. We left and returned 3 hours later to find that the beds were still unmade. We were then asked to wait in the... More

I stayed here for 6 nights and was very comfortable. The B&B is in an excellent location on a lovely street, within easy walking distance to Brown. The home itself is beautiful, typical New England in style with lovely antiques and many books. My room was lovely, nicely decorated, bed very comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Annie was welcoming, gracious, helpful,... More

I stayed here for a weekend trip and it was comfortable and clean. The neighborhood was nice and food was available in a few blocks. It was close to all the attractions I wished to see. breakfast was good if a little later in the morning than I would have liked. The innkeeper was personabale and professional.

We stayed in Annie's third floor suite for a little over two weeks and very much enjoyed our stay. Since we were traveling to a place with a 13-hour-time-difference, we wanted to be at a place that is very private. (We did not want to wake up other guests.) This place was located on the top floor with one queen,... More

I was made very welcome. Lovely home and value for money. Excellent breakfast with numerous teas available. Real old style New England house in quiet part of town. Really need a car as half hour walk to downtown but taxis cheap.
