We checked into the Sand Dollar Inn for one night knowing that it was not going to be a five star. Given that we just needed a place to crash for a night in the peak of tourist season, we opted for this place. Sadly our experience was not positive. First and foremost, we were overcharged. Even for peak season,...

After working over 100 hours a week I needed a vacations to unplug. I found that at the Sand Dollar Inn. This quaint little jewel is a diamond in the rough. The owners treat you like family. Rooms are very clean and cleaned very day. there was not anything we wanted for. We went memorial day week and found every...

Called for room, was told 75.00. Booked online, got it for 54.00. Not worth even that amount. Got there about 5:30pm, went to office, no one there. Door locked, banged and banged on door, no one came. There was an outside phone but when I dialed 0, it just kept ringing. I fortunately had the printout with their phone #...

I travel to RI often and always stay at SDI. This is a family owned hotel which is one of the nicer places in the town of Westerly. It is operated by a husband wife couple; Donna and KK, who treat their guests like family and will go way above and beyond to make you feel as comfortable as possible....

There was cobwebs and bugs needed to be vacuumed up. The place needs an overall updating~! The owner was nice, but their continental breakfast was kind of unconventional! It was very uncomfortable sleeping mattress and the room needs to be updated the doors and different areas need to be fixed!

Well, it wasn't the perfect weekend for the beach but it did not destroyed our staying at Sand Dollar Inn just because the owners and staff were so friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast too... The room was simple but very clean and this inn was close to everything.... I recommend and would stay again.

We stayed in the efficiency. It was awful. Nothing felt clean. The fridge had no shelves. The freezer had mold growing in it. Just super yuck. A few hundred bucks investment would have made a huge difference...but I guess the management doesn't care. The continental breakfast was poor. It just was not good. Unpleasant stay.

This place is genuinely unsanitary at times. Their shower caused me to get a terrible rash; the shower head wouldn't adjust so I couldn't wash the soap off myself. That may not sound like a serious problem, but when you can't wash yourself, its simply disgusting. Their beds smelt strange as did the entire room. When we got back from...

“The onlly thing we did not like was that there was not wifi in our room. Rooms were quiet at night although the hotel completely booked.... We enjoyed. Our son came with his wife and stayed at the same hotel and they liked too.”
