“turnover rate of hotel managers”
Reviewed 30 November 2010

can somebody explain why you stay at this 1 star hotel 3 times and see 3 different mangers at the front desk?? It seems like the owners must have issues because i stayed there in aug, sept, and november and the old manager who left in august was back again in november..both managers were very nice and def knew there jobs..makes you wonder what is up with the owners..they have chamber maids running the front desk now since the original manager in august came back and left 5 days later....are these people so underpaid and overworked that they just cant work under the crazy conditions i personally will never stay there again after the smell from the lower level came creeping up to the upper level..they have long termers there that are transients and not the cleanest

The previous management was wonderful. Due to a personal problem, he had to leave. I told him he would be welcomed back if he so desired. He came back and once again, due to a personal problem, he had to leave. A great loss to the motel! One of our wonderful maids has agreed to help me out with the reservations, phone calls, etc. while I search for new management. There are no odors coming from the first level. The motel is cleaned and deodorized daily, which includes all rooms and the common areas. We do not have "transients" living in the motel. We have received many compliments on our motel, including our great service we provide to our guests.

I was very happy to have found this place! Its a small place and very comfortable and the people who work there went far beyond to help me! The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Not a fancy place, but had everything we needed. When you leave the hotel, about 2 miles down the road was a 'visitors information' Just a few miles away from Newport and route 1A. Go the other way, lots of gift shops, and loads of places to eat. I would diffinately stay here again!

Stayed 4 days (for wedding of friend's daughter) The place was clean, well air conditioned and the beds were comfortable. Our room was equipped with a microwave and a small refrigerator;we used both.The managers and staff were very friendly and helpful. We very much enjoyed the complimentary coffee and pastry in the morning. Alltogether a very nice experience.

I stayed at the Wickford Motor Inn for 3 nights with my small children. The room was very clean. Bathroom was super clean. I was given extra towels for my munchkins by the super nice management. And the towels smelled CLEAN! LOL We travel alot and linens that actually smell clean is few and far between! There was coffee and pastry that saved us time and money running out on Sunday morning to go visit all our family in the area. Everyone we ran into was really nice to me and my family. Even going out of their way to get us some ice. The microwaves and mini frides were an awesome suprise in such an affordable and clean hotel..

First of all staff has issues when it comes to talking about and judging all of there guest. Second the place smells terrible. There whites are not even close to white. I had stained towels and face cloths. There was hair all over the bathroom. The rugs were disgusting. The place is extremely run down. But Iguess you get what you pay for.
