Growing up and taking vacations or travelling we usually stayed at Best Westerns, occasionally Hampton Inn, but i havent stayed at once since i was way younger. Now having a daughter I wanted to give her the best experience similar to what i had growing up.
I requested as a special request to have a pillowfort built for our child and for our dog too since he is full of personality. Upon arrival i noticed a cute little fort built, my daughter instantly crawled to it and inside of it. She loved it!!! I think my fiance loved it a bit more when he saw it because he had doubted the hotel personnel would even do it. He had a big smile on his face and was laughing saying "i can't believe they actually did this! This is so awesome!!!" While checking out, the young lady at the desk asked what room i was checking out from, i told her #120, she said okay then realized quickly and asked if we liked the pillowfort with a big smile on her face. We may go out of our way on the way back, just to stay at this location. The price was under $100, which is what we were aiming for.. we had stayed at another hotel 2 years ago right next door and cost us way more than $100 and the staff wasn't even as friendly.
I said I was going to give 5 stars just for that. But i was wrong. We drive back and forth from Minnesota to Rhode Island about 2-3 times a year for the past 2 years. I have stayed at countless hotels and I have NOT been as satisfied as i was staying at this location. Everything at this location was spotless, perfectly clean, nothing was broken, the bed was comfortable with not a piece of hair on it, the fridge and microwave didn't smell bad, the shower was clean, and it wasn't loud at all. Breakfast was delicious, the breakfast room wasnt crowded and the room was clean! All of the hotel personnel were so nice and cheerful. These are all things we've noticed while staying at other hotels.
I wish i could have given more than 5 stars. less

It was a pleasure meeting you and your daughter at checkout. I'm so happy to hear that we were able to give your family the best experience possible during your stay with us. We try our best to accommodate to all guest requests as long as we are able to do it. I am glad we were able to build the fort for your daughter and dog. We are glad they enjoyed it. I along with our other front desk agent, Ken, had fun building it. Building the fort brought back some memories for us as well from our childhood. I am glad you were able to check out some of the amenities we have to offer here at the hotel and were able to enjoy them. Our housekeepers take pride in the rooms they clean. We will be sure to pass along to them that everything your room was good and clean. Thank you again for your stay and review. We hope to see you next time you pass through the area!
