Scarborough Beach Motel
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Narragansett
Reviewed 15 August 2013

The location is great, right across the street from Scarborough Beach in Narragansett. Walk to the beach takes 2 minutes. We even had an end room with a picture window facing the beach. However, the room deodorizer plugged into an outlet put my wife off immediately when entering. She said it smelled like mothballs, although I didn't think so. The room came with amenities: big HDTV, fridge, microwave, and free wireless, but it was quite small, with only a double bed. The bed was too hard for my taste, and the refrigerator made a whining noise all night. We only left it plugged in because we had stored stuff in it. Also, each room has a very bright porch light and very thin curtains, so the room was lit up most of the night. I like a dark room. All in all, very average to below average, with the location as the saving grace.

Room Tip: Stay here if you want to be near the beach, and are not too fussy about your room.

This motel looks beautiful from the outside, but it is one of the most questionable motels i've stayed in. From the moment i walked in the door i wished i hadnt booked the room, it smelled musty, looked super dated, dirty, and dingy. The room was not clean, tge lightswitch covers were dirty and you coul see little spots of mold all over the bathroom. The bed was too small and as hard as a rock. The only thing this place has going for it is the location, its a easy walk to the beach, and i love the beach, but i will certainly never stay here again.

This motel was the only reasonably cheap one in the area. It is in a fantastic location right across the street from the beach but is definitely a little tired.
Room was clean but tiny. Bed was ok.
No tea or coffee in the room and its only available in the office between 8 and 6.
Would we come back? Yes as the location is great and you get to go to Aunt Carries for fish and chips!

Nice location and very accessible via public transport as well (trus me its rare and big deal in US)
Hotel facility was average and because we went there in off season , was almost empty. However the staff was cordial and tried to make our stay comfortable

We spent one night at the Scarborough Beach Motel at the end of July 2012. The room was an efficiency room with a stove which had an aweful smell of maple sausage. The size of the room was great but the smell was the downfall! The manager did come in and spray room deodorizer but it didn't help. I asked for some kind of credit and the manager gave us 10% back. The bathroom was very small with no space to put our stuff. Again, great ocean view and price considering it was "peak season". It was a great location not far from any of the beaches and restaurants. We will most likely return again just not book the efficiency!

Location: across the street from Scarborough Beach. It's an older motel, but very clean. We went for a night last summer and will return at least once a year. We hope to visit this winter for a night and will be back next summer. Great place for couples and families.

We stayed for two nights & upgraded to a bigger room which also had a sea view (Which was worth the extra.).....The Saturday night was a bit expensive....This is an annoying American thing & you have to go with it...That said i really liked the place & the manager was very helpfull when needed....The room was clean & reasonably kitted out & the location was great......Would stay again.
