Hi, my name is David and I'm a road warrior. I've stayed at about every type hotel/motel on the planet! Good ones and bad ones. Clean ones and dirty ones. Some I wipe the remote and throw the comforter in the corner. Currently, back and forth between Philly and Tiverton for upkeep on my rental property. Here is my take...

The front desk staff could not have been nicer or more helpful when I went back-and-forth about my reservation. She really went out of her way to be helpful. She allowed me to check in an hour early in order to change clothing for a special occasion. If this review was based on the front desk personnel alone I would...

My son recently got married in Portsmouth, RI, and family were attending from Pennsylvania Ohio, and Florida. I was not familiar with the area to know where to make arrangements for all of us. My son suggested Founder's Brook Motel and I had called 6 months before the wedding to start the plans. From my first call, and through all...

I have stayed at this motel twice within a few months and had a great experience both times. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great location as well. The efficiency suites were perfect for my friends and I. We had plenty of space, refrigerators in the rooms, and parking right outside our door. We had a great time and will definitely...

This was the second time I stayed at this motel. It is so convenient for me as my son lives just 5 minutes away. It is a very comfortable, homie motel. We stayed in the efficiency room which is really nice and spacious. The beds are very comfortable and the room is always so nice and clean. I highly recommend...

I stayed there recently and the people are super nice. The rooms are dated and needs work, but it was quiet and restful. Also a great location out of the hustle bustle of the large cities, but still close enough to get around. I will be staying there again when I am in that area.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a wedding at the blithewold mansion. Its inexpensive, clean and a fantastic place to spend the night. I ended up forgetting a shirt in my room and Prena at the front desk couldn't have been kinder and more responsive in sending it to me in NY. Definitely recommended!

Just arrived. The front desk clerk is lovely. Very friendly. The room leaves a LOT to be desired. We are in the far back & as we went by the other rooms we noticed all the windows are completely open in every unit despite it being a brisk fall day. When we got to our own unit we noticed the...

On the plus side: cheap ($136) when hotels in Newport this weekend were all $200+. Shower was hot. Toilet flushed. Quiet. Now the other side of the story: when you get to your room, you'll need to open ALL the windows to get rid of the mildew smell. Wallpaper peeling from the shower. Everything is old and sad looking.
