Just stayed here this week with my husband and two children in a double queen deluxe room for two nights. We wanted an inexpensive, relaxed place to stay with the kids while visiting Newport and Second Beach and this was a great choice! Hotel very clean and in a convenient location- lots to eat close by (as well as Applebees attached to hotel itself). It is true that the hotel could use a little updating, but honestly I loved the "retro" pool area because it reminded me of stays at Howard Johnson when I was a kid. Staff very friendly and helpful- we even got a phone call to our room shortly after check-in to ask if we needed anything!
Rooms on first floor are pet friendly, so if travelling without you might want to get the room with the balcony above. Plenty of parking in lot, vending machines, a few arcade games... It really is a good choice for someone with kids.

Room Tip: Room on first floor are pet friendly. Deluxe rooms have a minifridge and microwave. Back of hotel looks over picnic area instead of parking lot.

The room was standard, nothing fancy at all but it was clean. What was above average was the service at the hotel. The staff was very friendly, helpful and informative.

Stayed at a 5 star hotel in St Louis, MO the night before, and this was a better experience. Everyone was polite, the rooms were wonderful. The pool was the only off putting thing. Was setup nice, plenty of seating, and towels, however it was a little dirty.
