Great for college visit. Close to URI

The location is perfect. Great Italian restaurant on site and A Dunkin’ Donuts right there in walking distance and gas station across the street!

Nice location, cleanliness, pool, breakfast not included

Friendly staff, easy check in and check out, close to University of Rhode island.

Nice, brand new restaurant on site, and a comfortable bar and lounge, which meant we didn't have to go out in search of food and drink. The breakfast bar left much to be desired, however: everything offered was heavily processed and full of sugar. They could do better than that with little extra effort.

The pool and fitness center are nice amenities. The lobby was nice and welcoming and clean. The room was the perfect size and layout. The only issue I felt was that the bathroom door opened up pretty close to the toilet making it difficult to come out from the shower.

room we were given was an old smoking room and smelled bad. requested room change. Room change wasn't a problem. new room was better,, but still had a musty smell to it.

Front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We needed a moderately priced place to stay the night before an early event and this was perfect. Would definite stay there again.

Coffee was terrible . That is the only complaint . All in all a good stay

Worsts hotel I ever stayed at couldn’t drink the water it was contaminated then the stag was very rude will never stay here again

overall a good experience. great food nearby. we love antiquing, didwell.

Arrived an hr early before checkin the front desk staff was rude.....saying the room is not ready, my wife asked if we could sit by the pool and wait ..... it was 90 degrees on the 4 of July not far from the beaches...with miles of traffic to get to the beach. The young woman at the desk said that we could not sit by the pool “why don’t you go to the beach” ....knowing full well that by the time we had gotten to the beach in all the traffic and the heat .... mind you we are in our late 50s.... and had no intentions of going to the beach.... the room would be ready..so we went for a ride for the hour....arrived back at checkin time and was told we could sit by the pool but the room wasn’t ready....very hot and sweaty and with less gas in my car, my wife had gone in to do the checkin and came back out and told me what had happened...I chose to go in and ask exactly what happened within 2 min the room was ready..... lack of hospitality professionalism and any compassion was evident by the attitude of the young woman at the desk gets them a poor report from me....

This hotel provided a great overnight stay when we were college shopping at URI. The stay was welcoming, hotel atmosphere was quiet and comfortable, and the accommodations were simple and clean. I would recommend this hotel to a friend who was college shopping.

The room was nice. The breakfast at the hotel was excellent.

Nice and clean Quality bedding, great staff close to beaches!? Awesome

Friendly staff, clean rooms, ice-machine and vending machines on the floor, access to computer and printer, and a large parking lot, all contributed to a worry-free stay.

We were very pleased with the quick check-in and the accommodations. The room was a nice size and appeared to be clean. After returning to the room after breakfast, we noticed a smell of marijuana in the hallway leading to our room. When we entered the room, the smell was even worse. My kids, ages 6 and 8, complained about the smell and kept asking what it was. We told them to try and ignore it and that it was a skunk. We obviously knew what it really was. We assumed it would go away. But when we went back to the room after dinner, the smell was still there and even stronger. My brother-in-law was staying on the second floor and after coming to our room went downstairs to the front desk and complained. The hotel staff claimed that received numerous complaints but couldn't pinpoint which room. Early that morning at around 5am, I was woken up by the noise coming from the room which was adjacent to ours. The music and TV were blasting and the smell was horrific. When we went down to check out, I complained about the smell and the noise and they said unfortunately there was nothing they could do. The manager wasn't there and if I wanted I could call later to speak to him. They said that housekeeping was trying to determine which room it was but I told them I knew it was the adjoining room to ours because the smell was even stronger inside our room than out in the hallway. I think it is CRAZY that the Holiday Inn would allow this and not do anything about it.

Very convenient location for URI events. Has own restaurant. We miss in-room refrigerator when they renovated it but staff kindly offered use of their refrigerator. Much appreciated! Staff very accommodating, very helpful.

Very pleased for an unexpected trip. Thank you for making us feel comfortable.
