Very nice motel just a few minutes from Newport, R
This Howard Johnson was a very pleasant surprise. The lobby was bright and inviting, and the staff was efficient, and courteous. The free cookies at the front desk reinforced the idea that this was a motel that cared. Parking was plentiful and convenient to the building entrances. The hallways were bright and smelled fresh and clean. The room was large and well furnished with all the amenities you would expect. I especially like the second sink outside the bathroom door. The free wifi had a password. The lobby breakfast was what you'd expect, but the buffet area was clean and kept well stocked. We didn't use the indoor pool or hot tub, but it looked inviting as did the small fitness area.
