“Standard Holiday Inn, but clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Stayed here two weekends ago with friend for a wedding we were all going to. Good location off the highway, and convenient. Rooms were clean, pretty good bar downstairs and staff were friendly. All in all, your standard Holiday Inn.

I spent the night at this Holiday Inn when on business in southern RI, and found the hotel to be clean and very comfortable and all the staff was friendly and helpful. The only minor shortcoming is the very limited size of the workout room--only three machines. I also ate at the on-site restaurant, which was very good. There aren't a lot of choices for hotels in this part of the state, and this one was well located right on route 1, not far from the airport, and near the cross route to Newport (route 138).

Room Tip: The elevators are at the end of a long hall, so ask for a room near the elevator if you will be on a...

We stayed here when we came to bring my son to the University of Rhode Island. The reception was very hospitable and helpful. The beds are comfortable and the room was very clean. In fact the housekeeping staff were very friendly. The breakfast was a hearty and good. I had the vegetarian omelet one morning and the blueberry pancakes and both were excellent. The only drawback was the internet connection which wasn't very reliable. It was a quaint litlle hotel and I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Avoid staying by the vending machines!!

I have stayed at this hotel whenever I am in the area over the last many years. This hotel has always been the best in friendly staff and a great clean room. Sure rates are high in the summer and not being far from the beaches.. A simply supply and demand a basic business principle which some just cannot grasp and complain about prices. I always stay at this hotel no matter what time period I need to be there and the hotel has always made my stay a great stay and no complaints . They are always happy and smiling and always willing to interact with us and not just brush us off. They gave us great food ideas and yes, Iggys clam shack was still the best. We stayed once at the other hotel down the street because the Holiday inn was sold out, decent enough room but the service was just not there. Lack of friendliness and really only the basic in interaction. Sorta a bland cold feeling. We will never stay there again and will book earlier so we can get a room at the Holiday inn. And to those other reviews I read, if you can't afford it then Don't go to an expensive area in the summer,, I bet any money if they owned the hotel they would be doing the same in pricing.... Yes expensive on weekends but when I leave I don't feel like I was ripped off, the friendliness of the staff and a great pool, will be back many years to come....

I tried to book a room in a block of reserved rooms at this hotel for 10 days. Every time I’ve called (401-789-1051) to make a reservation I have waited on hold from anywhere between 5 minutes to 30 minutes and have not gotten an answer. This block of rooms was reserved for a wedding I will be attending and this is where the guests will be staying. I tried to circumvent the problem by booking a room outside the block but this attempt failed as well due to the hotel not having any vacancy (I imagine because of the block of rooms we reserved). I also attempted to reserve a room by calling central reservation (866-307-2224). They could see our block but could not reserve a room in it; they attempted to contact the hotel twice and had the same issue with no one answering the phone. I finally made one last ditch effort today and to my surprise someone answered after 10 minutes of holding. I spoke with Doug [--] and politely expressed my concern with the hotel staffs lack of answering the telephones. I feel as though I should have tried to book my room before I did this because he seemed to get defensive and was completely unwilling to help. I had to explicitly ask him to look up the block reservation. He simply stated the reservation had expired and nonchalantly asked if I had looked anywhere else in the area. I explained that I had not due to the fact that most of the family including the wedding party was staying at this particular hotel. I then had to ask him to check for any other availability in that hotel (something I feel should have been done without having to ask). His response was “all booked up”; I’m sure that you do not train your staff to be so crass. If he had simply apologized and chosen his words more carefully I would not be writing this letter. I do not think it’s too much to ask to expect a response like “I’m sorry sir but the hotel is fully committed to other guests”, I don’t even work in hospitality and I know this. Annoyed at how rudely I was being treated I asked what his manager’s name was. He said “Doug”; I had to ask for Doug’s last name and he said “Doug [--]”. When I asked to speak to him he told me he was Doug [--] and that he was the manager. I was shocked. I have a hard time believing a manager would treat or talk to a customer the way he did and I am hoping he was lying or that “every employee is a manager” or something along those lines. I do not feel I was treated with respect and certainly not like a customer. I was already upset about the amount of time I had wasted on hold for the last few weeks but after this experience I will avoid staying at any of your hotels in the future. I think it’s sad that one bad employee can really disrupt something that is supposed to be fun and happy. I will be reserving a hotel nearby but this means I do not get to see my family as much as I would have had I been allowed to reserve a room in your hotel.

We were looking for a last minute stay after a local festival. All of the nearby hotels were booked when I checked online, but we stopped in and found that they did have a room available.
The hotel was nice enough, but, honestly, the beds were the most comfortable beds we have slept on in any of many hotels we've stayed in. The pool was really nice...and lucky for us they had one because it was during a heat wave. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was very good. Not a lot of amenities and the bathroom was small. We missed having a fridge in the room. I would stay there again because of the comfort of the beds, the location and the pool.

Rear hall smells like smoke - gross! Sign is clearly posted outside - NO SMOKING, yet that's where the employees smoke - nice disregard for the rules - shows the guests you really care.

During the check-in process the desk clerk never told me there was a restaurant/bar or the hours.

Shower went from pleasant to ice cold in seconds - horrible time balancing the temp after that - too many rooms pulling on the same water source??

Bathroom is very small with a HUGE door.

Restaurant doesn't open until 7AM, which is a challenge for those of us traveling for work and have to be in the office at 8AM. No comp coffee in the lobby either - just the terrible stuff in the room. It's not like there are many options around here to grab a bite.

Decor is average Hilton - mismatched furniture. TV is on the same side as the sofa, which is inconvenient.

This was my second choice for hotels - only because my first choice just down the street was completely booked... wonder why?! This location will always be my second choice and only because it's part of the corporate approved hotel package, otherwise I'd not be back.
