I saw this on the Today Show and booked when we decided to go to the Waterfire festivities in Providence. It was a nice walk to that so the location was perfect for us. I got a room with two bunk beds because I knew my kid would love it. Its very basic but the linens were SUPER nice and comfy. Beds comfy, sheets and towels all super soft. I knew about the open shower and those aren't my favorite and it was quite small, but since it was expected it was ok. The place has a fun, quirky feel and it was perfect for our one night stay. I paid $23 for the valet to park my car, which I don't recall seeing in the reviews I read, hence the 4 out of 5 rating. But the price of the room was cheap so not going to frown on it. I'm sure I could've parked my car just as close on my own. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There were a lot of outlets in the room so everyone could plug in their devices :)
