“Fabulous place”
Reviewed 22 April 2011

My husband and I picked out the Old Court B&B based on it being mentioned on the hplovecraft.com website. Everything about the place definitely met or exceeded our expectations. The neighborhood is absolutely lovely, and the hotel is in close proximity to historical areas and nice restaurants. We stayed in the Empire room downstairs, which we picked out based on the looked just like the picture on the website. Everything was cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful, they had a nice selection of fruit, bread, and condiments out, and also served eggs and pancakes cooked to order. Everything about our stay was perfect.

We arrived in the middle of a blizzard, and were given a warm welcome. Max, our host, supplied all of our needs, and his employees were always helpful and pleasant. The room, including the double bed, was very comfortable. We were in the Empire Room, on the ground floor, which is smaller and more simply furnished than some of the other rooms, but it included all we need for our one-week stay. The home-cooked breakfast was always delicious.

The B&B is located in a lovely historic neighborhood. It's walking distance to Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design (with a good museum and fantastic museum shop), restaurants, and shops.

We were visiting my daughter who lives in Providence. My five-year-old granddaughter wrote her own review:

"Very comfortable ... nice wallpaper ... hard to open." (That was because my husband had turned the key the wrong way in the lock; it really wasn't hard to open at all.)

If my daughter stays in Providence, we will definitely return here when we visit her.

The Old Court B&B is in a great old house in the historic district of Providence. It's a perfect location, in walking distance of Brown, RISD, and downtown. My husband and I stayed here for two weeks on business, and the owner and staff were quite welcoming and accommodating - they made it a very pleasant stay. The breakfast room is comfortable, and the breakfasts were good. Our room was large and well-appointed, the bathroom was good, and the bed was fine. I much prefer to stay in a real historic house in a real neighborhood rather than a pre-fab, plasticized hotel surrounded by parking lot.

My partner is a huge Lovecraft fan, so there was no possible way we could have stayed anywhere else. We wouldn't have wanted to! We stayed in the nightingale room, whch had a fantastic view! The place was historic and gorgeous, and the literary significance made it more special. A fantastic location - we did the Lovecraft walking tour, which was great. Also handy to Brown. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was impressive!
The only issue was a very noisy air conditioner (which we reported and has hopefully since been fixed...?), that did disrupt our sleep a bit.

Location of the Old Court could not be better - close to the historic areas of Providence and within walking distance of many good restaurants. Our room was very comfortable, and the breakfast was great. The staff was extremely helpful. Over all a good choice and excellent value for money!

The staff was friendly and helpful. My 17 year old stayed there by herself for two weeks to attend a course at RISD. I came up to visit at the end of her stay. It is in a very nice, safe neighborhood. The B&B is ideally located for RISD or Brown University. The breakfast (included) was excellent.

I thought this was a decent B&B. It is old-fashioned and has a vintage feel but it basically has everything you need. The breakfast was fine. The location is great - right near Brown and RISD if you are visiting for graduation - walking distance to both.
Won't blow your socks off but well priced option for Providence.
