“Very Historic/Flea Market/Joseph Stanton Burial”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2005

The Falcone's owned this historic hotel/restaurant when I visited. The Falcone's were voices for the local Indian tribe in which I also visited. Joseph Stanton is currently buried here and his ancestry is from Nottingham, England. History states he negotiated and saved an Indian Princess (Block Island) and educated Indian children on the premises. Sachem rewarded him. A flea market today abutts the burial ground. The Inn is near Bess Eaton's! Very historic and entertaining!

Where do I begin? From the initial "checking in", noone was in the office, had to wait to before checking in, felt like it was an imposition being there. After that, the noise level during the evening hours was out of control. It's nice that they offer entertainment, but this was supposed to be a quiet weekend away and all we heard was Staff and doors slamming until all hours of the night.
Next morning, I had to ask for my own coffee and menu at breakfast.
If you are in the service industry, you should at least make an attempt to please your customers. This place had zero service skills. No one gave us the basic orientation of the Inn, nor did they seem to even care.
Parking also was ridiculous...getting to your room with any type of luggage was a maze. Please do not stay here.
For the price, they clearly did not make you feel special or that you were even on vacation!

Small inn close to many attractions around Charlestown. Inn has significant history, but none is truly captured in rooms. Rooms are basic, functional like any other roadside motel, except no phones in rooms (no Front Desk, etc to call for assistance anyway). Rooms have clean, functional bathrooms, cable TV with larger-than-average sized TVs as a plus.

Noise is significant problem, from cars travelling on adjacent highway to tavern employees taking smoking breaks on the porch by the rooms. Also poor noise insulation between rooms, especially between upper and lower floors.

Most significant complaint, however, is that when the receptionist was told the following morning about excessive noise that occurred at 4 a.m., her response was, "Why didn't you tell me about [the noise] then?" Our responses were that 1) there was no phone to call her to alert her about the noise, and 2) we were not about to exit our room and potentially run into the strangers making the disturbances. Last but not least, when we went to the main reception area at 7:30 a.m. to see if there was coffee, the front door was locked even though the receptionist denied that it was locked.
