“Nice clean rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Staying here for business. The rooms are spacious and quiet. Unlike other hotels where there highways are next door. The streets here are pretty quiet. There is also a good place to eat next door - Charley's.

Booked on Priceline. Incredibly affordable with all the options of staying DT. Room was very nice. It even includes a fireplace (not that we used it Labor Day weekend...but a nice touch). It's always nice to have a full kitchen as well.
Close to Mill City museum and the Stone Arch Bridge.

Room Tip: Heard before that this hotel is noisy...was not the case at all for us.

We spent Saturday night in a 1 BR suite. It was clean and neat and the staff and front desk were fantastic. We needed a porta crib and extra blankets for the pull out sofa and they were delivered within minutes. We got to do an early checkin and enjoy their water park with the 2 year old and 10 year old and spent a wonderful evening walking along the nearby river front, Upper St. Anthony lock and dam, the Arch Bridge and along the Mill ruins. The kitchen was well stocked, bed very comfortable and the breakfast offered a large variety of tasty entrees. Even the most fussy young eater can't help but find something they will love. This was our 2nd grandkids outing to this location and will plan another again. My husbands spent 6 months here while working in the area several years ago and he loved it for business travel as well.

Room Tip: We had room 102. It is a 1 BR unit that is the closest to the water park entrance. It is ideal if...

Tried to stay there for a few nights with family. The place reeked of neglect and despair. Awful. We moved.

Struggled with luggage while front desk clerk just watched. One bedroom suite was so bedraggled that I refused to stay there.

We arrive to find a very clean and aaccomidating facility. We came in late in the day and our room was ready and waiting. We had a great space... Kitchen, living are , nice bedroom and large bathroom. The place was clean. We had a dishwasher, kitchen with regular size frig, dishes and all we needed to spend the weekend, Our view out our window was that of the smokestack
at the depot. Awesome... It was so clean, accomidating and we had a great breakfast each day as well.If you have kids, there is a great water park, adults can however use the hot tub for free.

They have a great bar, you can order chicken wings and it was actually enough for our dinner one night. The area is awesome and a quick walk brings you to St Anthony falls, beautiful, ans a great walking path on the stone arch bridge, Great area, great time, great facility. Go enjoy!!

Room Tip: If you want coffee in the room, a quiet away place and do not mind away time on you own, taking fun...

I booked the room via hotels.com and stated suite with queen bed, queen pull out and separated sitting area. upon arrival, we were given an efficiency suite with no separate sitting area and full pull out. we booked for 4 adults and the hotel said there was nothing they could do. they were rude and short with us. needless to say we were cramped the whole time. not returning there

I stayed a couple of weeks at the RI Depot. The hotel is conveniently located, downtown is 5 mins away by a taxi or a bus ride. The rooms are clean and breakfast is decent. I had the room facing guest parking, hence wasnt too noisy. The kitchen was decent. The frontdesk was very helpful and courteous.

Room Tip: Rooms that open up to the guest parking are less noisy
