So convenient for visiting Roger Williams

I cannot say anything about the amenities. The decoration was very nice. The front desk was very clean and organized. Friendly staff.

Great stay.

Our go to place to have fun in Bristol or attend RWU events.

These motel suites were redone very recently. They are very cute inside. We were confused by the outlets as some were tied to the switches and you could not charge your phone next to your bed without out the lights on. They also did not clean/restock the rooms during the day while we were out. Overall ok and very close to where we needed to go.

Quaint and clean—and a real bargain. A comfortable place to stay

It was wonderful to cook again although I thought there was an oven. I am so sorry we forgot the food there. I am sure they had to throw it all away

It served its purpose, but nothing special to it. Could have improved with a bit of sprucing up!

I was surprised to realize, after already having slept in the room, that there were no smoke detectors in our room. There was a place to attach one but it was not there. In addition, I booked a queen standard and paid for it in advance but when I arrived I was told it was not available and was given a different, very outdated room that looked nothing like the up-to-date room that I had booked online. Lastly, one very flat pillow for each of us and a very uncomfortable bed. I wanted to love this place as it is close to my son’s college and I had hoped to stay here often during the next 4 years. Sadly, I won’t be going back.

Dear Guest Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your stay at our property. We are sorry to hear that we were not able to make your stay great as we expect to. Due to some maintenance issue, we had to upgrade you to Jacuzzi room instead of regular room which is also furnished the same as the others. We are sorry again and we hope you consider us again in future. Thank you
