Johnson & Wales Inn Providence/ Seekonk
Lonely Planet review
Run by the hospitality students of Johnson & Wales University this 86-room hotel makes the grade. It won't score an A-plus but it gives a good bang for the buck.
If you hate cramped rooms you'll love the extra floor space here. Recently renovated, all the rooms are big (roughly the size of suites elsewhere.) The Early American country decor fits the region, though the colonial reproduction furnishings feel more out-of-the-box than inspired. Coffee makers, ironing boards - no problem, there's plenty of room for amenities here. Conveniences include an online computer in the lobby and a guest laundry. Still, this isn't the kind of hotel you hang around in the daytime - it's mainly a place to sleep. On-site facilities are minimal but there is a gym with a pool a short drive away that guests can access by flashing their hotel key. The complimentary breakfast is simple - think pastries and cereal - but enough to jump-start your day.
