Gotta' give the Sea Whale the three "C's". Clean, comfortable and convenient! This hotel is very reasonably priced and provides quick access to Newport. The cliff walk is within walking distance, albeit not a short walk. However, just a short walk from the hotel is Flo's Clam Shack...good seafood joint! The owner checked us in to the hotel and made...

We were very happy with this motel. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. No complaints whatsoever!

Great place to stay! The owners are on the property and are very helpful with great suggestions on where to go, eat, drink and sit on beach. The accommodations were great and the location is perfect. We would definitely recommend this place to stay.

Has a pretty view of Easton Pond, short walking distance to the beaches and cliff walk. It's the perfect, affordable little get-away motel. It's in a great spot to get anywhere you want to be in Newport for the weekend. Situated just feet away from the best fried clams in New England at Flo's Clam Shack.

This trip I came with my friend for a girls getaway. I've stay here before and thought it would be a good choice for this trip. It was. Terri is very friendly and the motel and grounds are extremely clean. Everything you need is there. Love the deck room with a gorgeous view of the pond. Close to the beach,...

SEA WHALE REVIEW So many good things to say about the Sea Whale. We have been staying there for several years now, usually multiple times a year. The location is awesome. Situated right on Aquidneck Ave in Middletown you can walk to many area attractions. From restaurants to lounges to shops and Easton's beach. You can take the 2 mile...

Cindy--Thank you so much for the awesome review! Really, really appreciate it. Although we're a rather small Mom-n-Pop motel, we work hard to keep our guests happy as well as comfortable. Hope to see you soon. If not, have a great rest of the summer. All the best always to both of you..... Teri

Don't let the outside fool you. Your greeted by the owner who gives you her cell number if you need anything. We had a queen size bedroom on the first floor and the 1st thing you see when you go into the parking area is a nice area to sit and relax on a lounge chair or picnic table with...

I needed a room in a pinch for my child's college orientation. My other child and I stayed here for one night. We had a "garden view" room. The room itself could use a little updating in the bathroom, but it was clean and the complimentary necessities were neatly placed. I met Teri during check-in. She is very nice and...
