“Highly recommend- Would stay again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

*only stayed one night because plans changed otherwise would've stayed all week.
*Very clean, and at that price you couldn't complain even if it wasn't. Nice 32" flat screen...
*99 degrees outside- A/C was like an ice box ..
*Wifi didn't work at first..OWNER GAVE ME HER PERSONAL PASSWORD to access her personal Wifi until the repair was made later that day. Are you kidding me? gave me her personal password? THAT'S 5-Star customer service right there.

Highly recommend..will stay again.

My daughter, grandson and I stayed at Krystal Penquin last weekend for one nite. We wanted something that was close to Newport and the beaches. This fit the bill Perfectly!! Not too expensive but VERY clean, newly pained and remodeled, new mattresses, beds were very clean. The location was perfect and the people who run this motel were VERY nice and VERY accomodating. Would definately stay there again!

Just stayed for a long weekend this past week. Clean,comfortable and perfectly priced. I'm all about value and this was a great one in my book. I could have booked a room just down the road with a better view but I would have spent about $50 more per night. This is not a fancy hotel but a basic motel room with all the amenities one could ask for -- mini fridge that got ice cold when turned all the way up , a microwave --but that wasn't needed as we ate out every meal , hairdryer --seems to be a big deal to some people (she knows who she is) ,clean comfy bed and a perfectly working air conditioner which in the july heat was greatly appreciated.
Anyway I have no complaints at all for this place (had no hint whatsoever of the 'motely" smell the previous reviewer had (maybe you should ask for room 101 just to make sure :)
as I said I think its a great value ,centrally located --only about 30min to Newport or 10-15min from all the beaches and bars restaurants etc
I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area
PS only reason I gave the location a 4/5 is it wasn't on the beach :)

trying to find a cheap room in June at the RI shore is like looking for a needle in a haystack! we just wanted someplace to shower and sleep and didn;t want to pay too much for it. Kyrstal penquin was about $89 with tax so perfect! Right off route 1- room a little motely smelly but did have air conditioner unit in window. also had microwave and fridge. Bathroom was clean, water pressure eh, but it got job done! Had to leave early due to medical emergency so did not get to stay the night, so can;t really rate bedds (although pillows were kind of lacking...) Would stay there in same situtation.
