A bargain

While the room was pretty much average/ordinary, no frills, it was certainly suitable/satisfactory and a good value for the price. The staff was very pleasant, helpful and courteous; having a microwave, fridge and coffeemaker was also a bonus. Would definitely stay there again.

This inn was not at all what you pay for....you are better off paying more for a better place.....the room was gross and smelly....very old furnishings...and we almost considered finding another hotel but probalby wouldn't be able to find one on a weekend. Our bathroom window was on a major highway and didn't have a blind....hope no one saw anything? Location not bad but will never go there again!!!!!!

Needs lots of work

This place needs a renovation. it is run down and delapitated. There are nails coming out of the trim work and the carpets are worn. The mattress was about 25 years old. Not worth the money

decent destination

On a busy street near several good restaurants; nicely kept grounds. Rooms are old and small but very clean. Tiny tile bath with no clothing hooks, but room had small fridge and microwave. Friendly service. Quiet with decent beds. Good deal for the price. Good location.

Fine, got the job done

Very basic motel accommodations. The rooms were pretty clean, but not spotless. We literally showed up at 10pm, checked in, went directly to bed, woke up and checked out. So needless to say we were not looking for much. The location was quite convenient, although it is next to a busy-ish road, although the noise was not an issue. The inn keeper was quite nice. It was a good value for this area, which is quite expensive in general.

Wonderful find!

This Inn was the perfect spot for our attending our daughter's team playing in the Beast of the East Rugby Tournament in Portsmouth, RI ...minutes away from the field location. Having serious back surgery just a month ago I was worried about the comfort of the bed, needed the microwave/refrig for ice/heat packs, and just had to get to the game most importantly because my daughter turned 21 this weekend. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The Inn is located right off Rt. 138 and one might think it would be noisy in the room ...not so at all. For people wanting bells and whistles of pools, fitness centers, wireless hookup in the room, this would not be their cup of tea. We are happy we have discovered the Bay Willows Inn and would stay again. For us, the price for parents with kids in college and the comfort and amenities offered fit our needs. I'm so glad we discovered

The Red Parrot Restaurant in Newport, RI. We had dinner around 8 p.m.,on Saturday night, the place was very busy and thus noisy, but the food was delicious, the hostess and wait staff very nice. We'd go again, but probably for lunch or mid week.

Old and outdated

Motel room clean but the room has not been renovated in many years. The queen bed had a light fixture hanging over the pillow area. We guessed there were once twin beds there as the bed did not fit. The shower had black and pink tile from the fifties and the shower was slow draining. I left there wondering if paying more money to stay else where would not have been so expensive. There was some sort of party next door,and the walls were paper thin. My husband told me he could actually hear the jokes the person was telling in the room next to ours.

Never again

Rather frumpy room. No exhaust fan in the bathroom and window would only open part way. Website offered free breakfast but there was none. Felt very down market, but the price was not.

clean, reasonably priced

Room was small but clean, not much room to put down suitcases, toiletries, etc. Shower, TV, worked fine. Electric heater was available, and we needed it. Plain, but comfortable.
