while traveling to the motel we called the reception. A recording told us that the reception is open till 11 o clock. A time that we could make. As we got the receptionist on the line he told us that we had to be there before 10:30. That was impossible. At last he was willing to put the key under... More

It's not even close to fancy. But the location is fantastic. Directly across from a beautiful beach. Clean, small room, but if you're just spending the night, it's perfect. It has a TV in the room, microwave, and a refrigerator. It needs some touching up, old rickety furniture, But honestly, if you're in Narragansett you're here to take in all... More

We found the first room we looked at rather small (one queen bed) but asked for a bigger room (two full beds) much more to our liking. Though there was peeling paint on the outside of the motel, the rooms themselves were in good repair. Our room had a microwave and mini-fridge, good TV, good wifi (free) good parking. So... More

We recently stayed here for the night as there was nothing else available in the local area. We had an extremely small room that was very overpriced for this time of year. There's a distinct smell in the room, as if they're trying to cover up something worse. Definitely could have been cleaner. The only plus was the location, just... More

I don't stay in fancy hotels by any means, but this one was the worst rooms I've had in a long time. It is overdue for basic upkeep, wasn't all that clean, and had a stong smell of mildew. We both woke feeling congested in the morning. I'm glad we only stayed one night.

We stayed at Scarborough Beach Motel on 8/22/16-8/25/16. the room was small but it had everything we needed. It was directly across from the Scarborough beach. A room with a view. Couldn't ask for anything better. If you like beachfront, this the place to stay. The price was reasonable for beachfront. The owners were very nice and accommodating if you... More

My husband and I stayed one night. Hotel did the job, providing a bed for the night, but wow, is it in need of some TLC. Upon entry, the décor is a bit 80s, and it seems the light fixtures haven't been cleaned in decades, as there were remains of many bugs. The bathroom was a bit moldy in the... More

We were thrilled when we arrived and saw how close we were to the beach! The rooms were clean and cool with the friendly owners nearby to answer any question! With a short walk to the beach we were able to walk and explore the area. We will be back to visit again!

This property needs an extreme makeover, inside and out. That said, our room had an ocean view for less than $200 (pre-tax) per night. The proprietor offered to let us leave a day early given an expected storm. So long as you're not expecting luxury, you'll be fine. Think metal room key on plastic fob. Now park on gravel strewn...

This is great place for a beach getaway. It is a no frills motel, dated room decor but that was of no consequence. Rooms and beds are relatively small but considering this is a typical beach motel this was not surprising. The rooms smell musty just like all older beach motels, so it brought back memories. It is a 100... More
