You’d be surprised just how many motels in Rhode Island there are packed into the smallest state in the USA. What Little Rhody lacks in square miles, it makes up for in fantastic beaches and great state parks. Whether you’re venturing into the state to meet up with your ol’ college chum Purdue Pete or if you’re hunting for a Gilded Age mansion in Newport, these motels in Rhode Island will give you a warm welcome – bookable on Culture Trip.
Hamilton Village Inn has the pleasure of being one of the motels in Rhode Island located on the Scenic Route 1A, granting you lovely views surrounding your suite. These pet-friendly guest rooms are close to the beaches and downtown Newport, yet far enough away from the raised price tags of the resort area. Enjoy apartment-like living within minutes of the historic Warwick Village and the best beaches on Rhode Island’s coast.
Fewer than 10 minutes from the beaches, the Coast is one of the motels in Rhode Island that hides under the radar. Private entrances and an outdoor picnic area give this motel a minimalist yet homely feel. A half-dozen beaches are less than 5mi (8km) away so we doubt you’ll have much spare time to hang out in the shared lounge area. Golf and state parks are also nearby for any of your passengers who need a break from the beach.
Despite being 3mi (4.8km) away from Snake Den State Park, we can assure you that you and your family will be the only ones slithering into the sheets at America’s Best Value Inn. If for some reason, your skin is still crawling from the critters you encountered at the woodsy greenspace, we advise checking into the king suite and calming those nerves in the jetted tub. Now that you’re all chilled out, maybe reconsider wearing those snakeskin boots next time you hike.
When you’re not spending time outdoors hitting balls at Coventry Pines Country Club or boating in Tiogue Lake, spend your time indoors comfortably at Super 8. As one of the budget-friendly motels in Rhode Island not far from Providence, Super 8 welcomes you to park your RV in their lot and take a load off. You won’t need to rustle up grub – they’ve already got breakfast going for you. The Wi-Fi is free but there’s also a business center on-site if you prefer printing out a physical road map for your travels.
No matter which direction your I-95 holiday takes you, Hampton Inn is ready to welcome you to Rhode Island. Those who fancy a pipe or cigar while lounging on the bed will be pleased to discover a king study room that permits smoking. All guests can inhale the best attractions in Rhode Island easily – in a half-hour or less, you can drive to Brown University in Providence, check out the mansions in Newport, or spend hours sitting by the sea on Narragansett Beach.
Obviously, it’s hard to compare the motels in Rhode Island to the grandeur of Newport’s mansions, but Quality Inn and Suites gives overnighters a run for their money. The deluxe guest rooms have two-person hot tubs, which is a huge win in our books. Add in a 3mi (4.8km) drive to downtown Newport and we’re sold. An added tip for penny pinchers – load up on the free breakfast so you can save your money for plump lobster rolls down by the harbor.
There aren’t many motels in Rhode Island near the Rhode Island Desert but the Best Western will keep you as close to the sand dunes as possible. A king guest room will keep you cozy whenever you’re not marveling at this unique state park. A trip to the pool feels obligatory, especially with all the time you’ll be spending in the sand. Just be sure to get the grains of sand out of your hair before breakfast – no one likes a crunch in their scrambled eggs.
After a day ridden with airport pricing, you’ll be happy you chose the affordable rates at La Quinta Inn and Suites. Keep the cab fare in your pocket – the free shuttle service will take you to and from the airport. The free breakfast buffet also lets you start making back that cash you spent on an overpriced ham and cheese sandwich in Terminal 2. Go on and splash in the seasonal outdoor pool, as well – you’ve earned it after a long flight in coach.
