The motel is beachfront, which is awesome. There is a large bar right on the beach. The rooms are OK but nothing special. Improvements have been made to the stairs and decks. There is no deck furniture, which is very inconvenient if you want to sit outside to watch the ocean. The rates are quite high and continue to go... More

On the surface, the room sounds good - queen bed, table with seating and a view of the ocean. But, add a couple of decades of people staying in the room and no upgrades and you get the idea. The bad: The shower was so small I couldn't shave my legs (at the beach sorta necessary!), the drawers were very... More

We originally were booked for two rooms. Both rooms were those that had not yet been renovated. We would have made due.....even though the rooms were quite dated. Luckily for us, Stephanie at the beach bar, suggested we relocate to a two bedroom apartment in the motel. This was fantastic as the apartment had been renovated and also had a... More

Couldn't get a room in our usual place in Misquamicut but had high hopes for this motel. The website boasted that they were on Hotel Impossible. After watching the episode on YouTube, I was a little skeptical. And grossed out. I hoped they made a complete turnaround -- not yet. The location is wonderful. Full view of the ocean--can't take...

Thank you Amanda for the helpful suggestion. We are glad that you and your family had a good time and were happy with your stay. I do agree that a mirror in one of the bedrooms would be nice to have. I am going to talk to the owner about it. More

We only stayed one night as this was a spur of the moment visit to the beach to watch/see surf due to Hurricane Hermine. Staff was very accommodating, and room was clean. In fact after checking out we were able to stay a few more hours to watch the surf.....which was incredible. I only gave an average rating due to... More

So I had high hopes, always saw it when I went to the state beach. Based on some reviews I thought, I'll do it! Somewhere I even saw it said there were newly remodeled rooms, so I expected much more than I got. I stayed in one of the apartments, as I was staying a few nights. The room was... More

I am very sorry that you did not like your apartment. I wish I could show you one of the 9 rooms/apartments that we did renovate because I think you would have been pleasantly surprised. We are in the process of renovating all of the rooms. Unfortunately we can not have construction going on in the middle of the season.... More
