We stayed for 3 nights at this motel and although it was clean, there were some drawbacks. First, i'm 6'2" and they had full sized beds with very uncomfortable mattresses so if you're a tall person, i suggest looking elsewhere. The shower had very low water pressure and the bathroom, overall, was adequate. The AC kept turning on and off,...

Location was pretty good. The room was average for your "mom and pop" beach motel. Our big complaint was no hot water in evening, and I was told that was normal according to the manager. I did not agree with that at all. If they run out of hot water maybe they need to upgrade the water heating system.The bathroom...

I was just here last weekend I have to say it was nothing like I had expected. I needed somewhere inexpensive in that location, so after reading many negative reviews I decided I would take a chance since it was only for one night. I have to say that I was more than pleasantly surprised. It was clean and had...

We missed the last ferry to Block Island and the more upscale motels were booked, so Scarborough Beach it was. No complaints about the price--$79. And really, no complaints--we got our $79 worth. Don't look for extras like refrigerator, coffee maker, even little plastic glasses in cellophane--ain't gonna happen. On the other hand, fast free internet. You're not going to...

I was quoted a much cheaper price for Saturday but I was charged a lot ore upon check in. Room was sub prime doors windows leaked cold air and howled all night long. I won't be back and I urge you to look around. Not worth the price for this property good feature is it is across from the beach.

There was a moldy, nasty smell in the efficiency room. When I went to the front desk, I was handed a can of room deodorizer and told that it was because of the dampness from the ocean. I have stayed at many ocean & lake front hotels over the past 30 years and I've never experienced a smell like that....

We stayed here during the first week of August. This was my fifth visit to the property in 20 years. Very convenient. Just across US1a from Scarborough State Beach. This is a great place for a "quiet" beach vacation. Note there are no restaurants within walking distance; however you can book one of the motel's efficiency units and eat meals...

If not for being across the street from the ocean, this motel wouldn't last a day! I graduated URI in 1999, and returned with my fiance, to show him my old stomping ground. WOW! The room was TINY...NO EXTRAS...and the price went from $69 to $90 per night upon booking. Not even worth the $69! The owners are ANYTHING BUT...

I'm reading the positive reviews about this place and wonder how long ago that was? This place was bad, real bad. I stayed in 2013 and last year (2012) as part of my husbands annual picnic for work... and it wasn't that great but whatever happened from 2012 to 2013 in a year... who knows. Our toilet barely worked. The...

What a Dump! Horrible service, unfriendly owners, smelly rooms, way overpriced!! My toilet kept overflowing. The owner handed me a plunger. I paid $200 a night for a vacation to plunge my own toilet?! No wonder the room smelled like urine!
