Place is very clean and well kept. Rooms are a little dated but comfortable and a reminder of what motels use to be ie no fancy door locks that require a card to open. Stayed there overnight on our way to newport. Easy to find right off rt 1 and close to east beach. Will be back if we need...

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend for a family wedding we attended. We stayed in the main motel area with an incredible view of the lake. The room was on the second floor with a king size bed that was pretty comfortable. There was also a good size balcony with chairs and a small table to hang...

Love their breakfast. Amazing Benedict. We haven't stayed at the hotel in several years. Over 10 years ago we had rented a cottage for a long weekend. We've also went to one of their hotel rooms in the main building. This is an old-school family resort

We haven't stayed at The Willows in a while. We did enjoy breakfast there. They have great Benedict's. Will come again to their sunny dining room. The service was kind & relaxed. This old style family resort is a real throwback to 1950-60's. Love being there on the pond.

We've been going to The Willows for about 10 years now. We always stay in the main building the traditional motel-y part. The resort is located on Foster's Cove, a tiny spit of water... but they have that adorable sailboat anchored in the cove, with a light on it at night... it feels like Waterfront somehow, despite the reality that...

If you want a genuine, courteous manager and staff then this is your place. For the area this was also the best price, nicest people, best breakfast and the pool was very clean, large and beautiful. The grounds is also very well kept, spacious and we had a good game of Frisbee!!! We went to Rhode Island from Oklahoma for...

I should start by saying that the Willows Resort is not a resort, but rather (as their website mentions) a family-owned piece of property with a few different types of rooms. If your expectation is for some five star looks-like-every-other-waterfront resort, you will be disappointed. If you're looking for a quiet weekend, with no frills on a property whose rooms...

So, I knew I was taking a chance by the mixed reviews on here but I just decided to book it for 2 nights. Well what a mistake. You can tell just by pulling into the driveway what you're in for. I can deal with the old school check in and having a key, but once we opened that door...holy...

We chose this 'resort' on the positive reviews and advice at Trip Advisor. When we arrived we realized that these reviews were meant to be read with tongue in cheek. Maybe it was the wrong time of the year? A bad weekend for the staff? Or perhaps my DH and I expected too much for a four/five star rating? To...
