Clean, friendly and helpful staff, dog friendly motel a few minute walk from the beach. Rooms have microwave and fridge. Near restaurants. On a salt pond. Kayaks available at no charge. Picnic area with barbeque. A real find! Only 10 rooms.

The place is run down, but it is a great in its location. The Tuesday through Thursday staff are friendly accommodating and respectful. The weekend manager is disrespectful, rude, obnoxious and unfortunately it is condoned by the owner. I would not recommend this to anyone...More

We are a 10 room motel located very close to one of the best beaches in Rhode Island. Restaurants are within walking or very short driving distance and we are convenient to casinos and downtown Westerly. All More rooms have tile floors, two double beds, an LCD television, A/C, a microwave, a refrigerator and a private bathroom. In our lobby we have endless coffee and tea, near our jewelry display case! With a back yard on salt water we have boats that guests can use at no additional cost, gas grills, picnic tables and a very popular hot tub. If you want a safe, clean, comfortable motel near a beautiful beach, come see us. You can bring your pet too! Less
