Not really up to snuff.... not clean. Roaches. Maybe worth $25 a night but not $125.

I have stayed here a couple of times now. It's very quiet. I like the hotel but it could be cleaned a little better. Maybe update a few things. But overall I enjoyed my stay.

Staff was young girl too busy with phone to do her job. Room was gross. Sheets had stains. Carpet and walks had stains and burns. Furniture covered with cigarette burns. Strange odor. Door would not lock from inside. No phone in room. Crusted food on brochure for hotel left in room. Refused to give us receipt at end of stay. Stay away from this place.

Hotel room had decent floor space, but was a "tired" looking room. TV old and poor reception carpet clearly not vacuumed Bathroom completely steams up during one shower and floor got very slippery

It`s a pretty good place for 1 night staying. Our non-smoking room had a specific smell which is very difficult to get rid off. But the stuff was welcoming and a price was under our budget.

This hotel was creepy. I felt unsafe and did not end up staying there.

we made 2 reservations and canceled one (all done online thru an agency). when we arrived they did not have our room res and they were booked. they did have our reservation on their computer and they did find us a room at the hotel. it was very large, 2 queen beds , but no frig nor microwave (some rooms had these). the breakfast was scant, bad coffee. the staff - one large family--was EXTREMELY NICE. the AC worked and we were only there one night. with my discount, this place was reasonable, for the area. we were going to Misquamicut beach with a large party.

I always look for a cheap place to stay when at the shore line, it's basically just a place to stay the night so we don't have to drive the two hour ride back home when we've been in the sun all day. But this place was just down right nasty. The toilet bowl looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks, there was a dirty hand print on the wall above the toilet, there was, what I thought, blood splatter on the wall inside the room, the shower was smaller than the size of a portolet, pillows smelled like smoke, there was ash from a cigarette in the sink in a non smoking room and to boot there was no ice in their 'ice chest' in the middle of July, would never stay there again no matter how cheap it may be, I'd rather drive alittle further to stay in a cleaner hotel. The only positive thing, it was a 12 minute drive from the ocean

The room and bathroom were both very small. To use the toilet, your side was touching the wall and your knees were touching a wall in front of you. The metal on the faucet was falling off. You had to walk across the room around the bed to turn on a light upon entering Whic was difficult finding in the dark. Not uncomfortable but definitely would not stay there again.

The room was extra small, the shower as well. There was no hot water. Overall it was not worth the money. Even if it was $50 still not worth it .

It was supposed to be a New Year getaway, a good time, a place to rest after a new year celebration, instead it turnout to be a night mare. First the hotel was over booked and people were line up screaming at the clerk that by the way did not speak English. We finally got our key,after frustrated guests left. We dropped off our bags and went out to celebrate the new year. We were back around 3 AM and when we open the room door a Sewer odor came from the room and when stepped into the room the floor was soaked wet. Did not take much to realize that it was toilet water flooding the room. The water in the bathroom was about 10' high. We look for someone but there was no one around to complain. The hotel had no phone in the room and no one answered the main number. We had to get our bags in the room, so we walked over the toilet water and grabbed our bags. The smell was so bad that it really made me sick. We stay in our car and waited for the hotel to open. In the morning we found out the most of the rooms were flooded and people were very upset. The clerk informed us that the hotel owner was vacationing in India. We complained with the clerk that gave us a $25.00 discount although we demanded our full refund. We are pursuing this further because they should give us our money back. We called [...]for help since we did our reservation through them but they said there is nothing they could do about it. So there you have, the hotel was a hazard to one's health, a filthy dump and [...]turn out to be a site that can not be trusted for reservations.

This was the worst hotel ever. The hotel was overbooked and there were many people mad in the hotel lobby when we checked in. The room smelled gross and the sheets were dirty. In the middle of the night, the toilet overflowed for no reason. WE could Not use the bathroom or flush the toilet. In the morning the shower filled up with dirty water, that may have been sewage.. We could NOT shower or use the bathroom in the morning. The hotel owner would NOT refund our money..I will never stay at that hotel again...

Went to stay for my NYE trip to Foxwoods, bad decision. I asked for 2 beds and I only got 1. Rooms needs to be updated and had a Mountain Dew Amp promo fridge for the refrigerator. Pay the extra money and stay at the Casino if possible.

We stayed at this hotel for new years eve because we were taking a cab to Foxwoods Casino. When we got there the first room they gave us the toilet wouldn't flush and the room was freezing. They then gave us a second room and which was like a sauna and someone left us a gift in the toilet(if you know what I mean) which looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. [...] I would never stay here again, it smelt, was dirty, and too far from Foxwoods which is why we picked it in the first place. On top of all that the guy at the desk could barely understand english. Spend the extra money on a better hotel its worth it!

For those that trashed the motel, I think you are way off base. First off it IS a motel. I don't think I have ever been in one that wasn't a little musty. This one is near the water (although you can't walk to it - bummer) so it's got that adding to the must. The decor was nice. It was pretty clean. It was quiet AND it had a fridge and a microwave. If you travel with a family the fridge is a must. It is in Stonington - a colonial seaport town that must be seen to be believed. The hotel is on the outskirts of town right on Rt. 1 - easy to get anywhere. We did Mystic Seaport (great!!), the Aquarium (eh..), beach at Westerly RI, and toured around in general. Only real negative - no wi-fi except what I could barely get from their office on a good time.

Overall, I was very satisfied with the accomodations. The room and bathroom were very clean. The location was fine. The price was reasonable.

We were going to Mystic Seaport for the weekend so we stayed here. Next time, we would pay more to stay somewhere else.

Called so they expected a late arrival (9:00PM) Desk person (male) not very friendly, room at top of skinny staircase that was difficult to climb with bags. Bathroom was clean but in poor condition. Shampoo bottle already opened and partly used. No stopper or strainer in sink pipe. Tile on floor very different from tile on walls. Bathroom lighting very dim. TV far away from beds with no chairs nearby. Smell of Indian (India type cooking) but not too strong. I did sleep fine which is what I needed most anyway. There were no extras there at all.

it was ok because it was inexpensive and not too far from the beach.But it needs some upkeep and the sheets and room had a not very pleasant oder

FIRST THE HOTEL WAS NOTHING LIKE THE PICS. tHERE WAS BLOOD STAINS ON THE COMFORTER SO I COULS ONLY IMAGINE WHAT ELSE. ROOM WAS NOT SPACIOUS AT ALL. BED WAS AT LEAST A BED. I FELT MOR LIKE I WAS BUNKING UP THAN RENTING A ROOM. THANK GOD I BROUGHT MY OWN SHEETS AND BLANNKET. BASICALLY A DIRTY CLOSET WITH A BATHROOM AND A FEW APPLIANCES STACKED ON TOP OF EACH OTHER. ALSO THEY LEFT CLEANING FLUIDS HANGING FROM THE DOOR KNOB EVEN THOUGH THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE NEVER USED. VERY DISSATISFIED. sHOULD HAVE SAVED THE MONEY AND SLEPT IN MY CAR AT LEAST IN THAT CASE i WOULD KNOW WHAT THE STAINS WERE FROM.
