This place is very unique. It's a strip club with a hotel upstairs. It also tries to appeal to the business traveler.
This place isn't for families, so leave little Johnny and Kelly at home.
it advertises " clean rooms" But I can't get past the location.
The Sportsman's Inn is a dodgy looking place. I ended up there because the price of rooms in Downtown Providence had skyrocketed over May '05 graduation weekend. At check-in I noticed the owner(? )opening xxx dvd's and putting them into a sorter! There is even an exotic dance club located on the ground floor of the hotel (NOT topless). The rooms vary in size and the front desk will show you options. The rooms definitely have that Hunter Thompson-has-just-left-the-building atmosphere. The rugs are very worn and the cabinets and shelves are very battered. Definitely B.Y.O.hangers (and cell phone)!! A pair of rubber slippers is also recommended for walking around your room and bathroom. They are strict about having you get out by 11 a.m. (funny for such a place that looks like its tenants need to rest-in to salvage their hangovers). A strong rap-rap-rap on the door is your walk-up call to reality. On the plus side, the staff keeps a pretty good eye on who walks in and out. You cannot beat the location which is convenient to everywhere worth walking to. John was especially helpful in orienting me. For $40 to $60 a night this is a good option for independent male travelers (not females!) who don't mind a Y.M.C.A. hostel-like experience.
Great location. Cheap rooms. In house entertainment.
When you have to be away from home, especially on someone else's dime.... this place will make you feel like you're at home, except that somebody keeps making my bed!!
This is NOT a photo of Residence Inn, but rather a unique German style building I found.
The Providence Marriott is a nice moderately priced hotel. The hotel is clean and maintained. While the Bluefin restaurant in the hotel serves good food, they are pricy for what they do serve - don't expect to be able to pick-up a breakfast for less than $10 US.
The hotel's location is a bright and a sore spot for me. While it was very close to downtown (within a 15 minute to downtown and the state capitol building), nothing else was really close by - no small restaurants, no convience stores, no strip malls.
My stay at the Marroitt was $159 US per night. I'm not sure about the average price in the area but it was a little higher than the Sheraton in Burlington, Vermont.
The Comfort Inn is an older hotel, but conveniently located right next to Providence's airport, called TF Green, and very close to several restaurants including Bertucci's and Legal Seafood. In fact it is so close to the airport, you can very easily walk to the hotel, as two in our group did one morning. They also offer complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport 24/7, via a shuttle that is shared with the Sheraton next door.
The hotel has a pub--called the Flight Deck--plenty of free parking, free wireless high-speed internet access, free breakfast with hot waffles starting at 4:30 a.m., coffee in the rooms, and a fitness center. They even have a Tombstone Pizza vending machine near the lobby. They also offer small conference/meeting facilities.
The 201 guest rooms leave a bit to be desired. Of our three rooms, one had a broken A/C unit and in another, the key failed to work after the first time in the room. The rooms were definitely good enough for the price. They do allow pets, if you pay $50 extra per room.
We paid around $105 a night to stay here, about half the price of the nicer hotels in downtown Providence just 6 miles away.
A typical Motel 6. No breakfast but free coffee in the morning. Clean rooms.
Prices starting at $49.99 per person for one night, which is a little more than for the usual Motel 6.
