Room was small but very clean. Was quiet at night for sleeping. The staff was very friendly. Fantastic location right across from the beach. Only stayed two nights but will stay longer next year. For the price it was great..

Just got home. Friends had a beach house, and we needed a room nearby. Unknowingly booked a place 2 miles away. Called this place in the morning, and they had a room. We had room 118. It was like a mini apartment! Clean, a kitchenette, table and chairs, big comfy bed, comfy pillows, comfy sleep sofa. The beach is across...

Decided to take a last minute 1 night quickie getaway trip to Rhode Island and wanted to stay in the Narragansett / Scarborough Beach area. The Scarborough Beach Motel was the only place I could find available for a Friday night without a minimum stay. Reviews were scattered all over the place, but i know the area and decided to...

My room smelled like pee....overwhelming. Their solution was to unleash a can of Lysol spray. I couldn't breathe. It was disgusting. We ended up staying at a different place to the north that was much more reasonable and clean.

Daren, we would like to apologize for providing you with a room with an unpleasant odor, and that we were unable to find a reasonable solution for you and your group. This is a complaint we haven't received before, but once is enough, and we'll be looking into ways to fix the room in question. I hope we'll get the...

We just spent Thanksgiving here. We had a wonderful time. Our room overlooked the beach, just a few steps and you have a great boardwalk and beach to enjoy. The rooms and bathrooms are kind of small but comfortable, with a microwave and refrigerator. The tv is new, there is free wireless, and it is very affordable, especially in the...

Spent the night with my family at the Motel. Beautiful location, very clean room, good service. No frills, yet that's what a motel is for. Absolutely a winner. No hesitation to recommend to friends or family.

If you are a RI beach person on a budget this is the place for you. The owners are wonderful and go out of their way to accommodate your stay. Rooms are clean. Second floor is the best. Parking is easy. You are less than 10 min from several beaches and right across the street from the state beach. Best...

My family booked a late night fishing trip on the spur of the moment, and we were not going to get back until 1:00 a.m., so we hurried with about 10 minutes to find a room. Sorry to do this, as I have never written a poor review on anything before, but it was so disappointing, I felt I needed...

We have been coming to Club G for years for a long weekend in the summer. Never mind what Club G stands for. The fact is, the location is the best. If you're looking for something right across from a RI State Beach, that is a slight upgrade from spending the night in a rented camper, the Scar. Beach Motel...

We're very happy to hear that you enjoy the location, and that you've been coming to see us for years! Unfortunately, K, our property doesn't allow changes or major renovations to be made to the bathrooms, though we have done what we can to ensure they stay in top condition. Thanks for your feedback, and hope to see you again...

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and grandson in a 2 double bed unit. The room smelled musty, but to be fair, being that close to the ocean will likely result in a musty smell. Aside from the dampness, there are no hair dryers or coffeemakers in the rooms. Coffee - regular only - is available in...
