“Very Quaint, refurbished inn close to the ocean in Narragansett”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

The Grinnell Inn was a very nice place to stay. It was clean which is always a concern when selecting a place to stay it. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. A plus and minus; rooms have hardwood floors which I liked but it made it a bit louder with no noise absorbing carpeting. I always bring ear plugs and had no problems sleeping. Riptides restaurant is a place I would go to whether or not breakfast was included with the stay. In fact, My husband and I discovered the inn last summer 2011 during a visit to Narragansett. We stopped in for breakfast and I fell in love. It became my favorite breakfast spot in the area and only because I haven't yet eaten lunch there...yet. I would stay at the Grinnell inn again and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: The owners are very accommodating with requests.

Great place, clean, friendly staff. Convenient restaurant downstairs with great food. The breakfast that's included is delicious. Bars and restaurants are not within walking distance unless you don't mind walking 20 min each way. We would walk into town and cab it home. Easy to catch a cab at night. I would stay here again. Good value and great location. Also extremely close to Point Judith if you want to take ferry over to Block Island for the day which I recommend. Rent a scooter and tour the island !

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Grinnell Inn this past July. Our room was fabulous with a nice king size bed, flat screen tv, private bathroom. The Inn is within walking distance of the beach and other area attactions.
We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to get back again in the near future.

We cannot speak highly enough of Salena and her staff at the Grinnell Inn. They were exceptionally helpful(especially as we had a baby in our party) and made our stay the highlight of our trip. The room, the Inn's location and charm and the breakfast were also amazing for the value. Great experience and would highly recommend to others!

This place was great. We stumbled upon it by chance and were happy we did. It is so clean and the beds were like floating on a cloud. Everything is new, with flat scream tvs. Air conditioned, wifi. And private baths. We were able to park at the inn and walk to the town beach. The best part was the great breakfast we got included with our stay at there restaurant..Riptides. the inn keepers were very helpful..and kid friendly. They had great ideas for day trips and even had beach bags for the kids to use. Next time I return to narragansett we will return to the Grinnell.
