I'm always skeptical of motels, but this was truly a fantastic place. We stayed here three nights as my husband and I went to the Newport Folk Festival. Hotels in Newport were out of our price range and this was a gem to find! Pride in ownership was demonstrated by little touches like coffeemate for the coffee rather than powdered creamer as well as the bigger aspects such as a very clean and well maintained room. The furnishings, television, refrigerator and microwave were older but well maintained and in working order. The bed was a little uncomfortable but it didn't deter us from the positive experience. Teri, the owner, was available 24-7 if needed and when we did need her she was at the door in minutes and very pleasant and wanting to help! We had a garden room (lower level) which had chairs outside the door to relax in as well as chairs in the finely manicured lawn that overlooked the water (I think it was a giant pond - it was a lovely view). Within walking distance are restaurants, a gas station for snacks, a liquor store, the beach, and the cliff walk. The parking lot seemed to have enough space. We would highly recommend this great value of a motel!
