Historical Traveler Reviews Village Inn at Narragansett Pier Hotel and Conference Center
I had stayed in the Village Inn in 2001 and it was run down but being repaired so I gave them the the benefit of the doubt. They were expensive for a place in such disrepair but the people were nice. Then in 2002 I made another reservation but found out the price had almost doubled! I was told they had completed their renovations but had had a fire and now had to do more repairs. I cancelled my reservation the same day and stayed at the Atlantic House (dont' go there either!) instead. It took more than two months to get the proper credit amount to my m/c for the cancelled reservation. In the end I sent a letter to my m/c and copied the Village Inn. My m/c did the corrections that were needed. Steer clear of this over priced rip-off joint!
Worst place ever!
I stayd here 6/02 and paid big bucks. What I got for ocean view was a corner with huge air conditioner on it so it was so hot I could not go out there. People rude and when I asked to change rooms they called the police on me! What a dump.
They Know They have a Monopoly
The Village Inn has a great location. They know it and they charge for it. They do not care if they make mistakes and they do not care if you leave with bad feelings. I've been there several times. The Narragansett town beach is my favorite. I like that all amenities and restaurants are within walking distance. If there was another hotel in the pier area, I would not hesitate. I owe this hotel nothing. (Last year we booked a cottage for a week for less than we pay for two days at the Village Inn. No one says you have to stay at your cottage for the entire week.)
Most horrible hotel experience
I am convinced that this hotel is running a scam. I had booked a hotel room in November for Memorial day weekend, at the rate of $149/night. After some other people were having difficulties with them, I decided to call 2 weeks before just to check on the room. They confirmed my room - at a rate of $249/night. I told them I had written confirmation of the previous rate. Their explanations as to why it changed ranged from "computers crashing" to "new 2003 rates". In any case, they admitted that I had been told and quoted, and BOOKED the room at $149. However, they said that depsite my confirmation (in writing), that they changed the rate. I spoke with 3 different people, all who were rude and disrespectful. In the end, they offered to discount my room by $20. I ended up cancelling due to the fact that when you book a room at a certain rate, hotels cannot(!) just up it by $100 and not notify you. I believe they do this to many people, and wait until they check-out so that they are stuck paying the money. ****They have an unsatisfactory rating at the Better Business Bureau already, and I advice everyone to steer clear of this place!!
Room not worth the $
Rooms are not as nice as you would expect for the price. Paid for an ocean view room. However, had more like a "deck view". Cafe downstairs is good, very friendly. Hotel charged us twice for the room so check your credit cards!
Love this place!
I am a repeat customer of the Village Inn and every time my family and I decide to stay there it is very pleasant. Ocean view rooms are best. Love the store right next door.
Although I am only 14, i have staed her a numerous amoun of times. The maid service was great, but thedesk clerk could have been a little bit better. But evrything else made my mom and my trip a happy one :-) you should definetly visit here!!
Put this on your list of places to avoid!
Words cannot discribe my experience at the Village Inn. Never have I been treated with such absolute disdain and arrogance. The rudeness of the desk clerk was unbelievable. I could not understand how she could keep her job until I met the manager. They asked if we would like an ocean view room for an additional fee. When we got to the room the view was of the parking lot. I complained and was told it was an ocean view because it said so in the computer and that no one had ever complained. This was just one instance but it happened repeatedly. The bolt on the door was broken, as was the door, from being kicked open. The towel bar was conveniently placed on the floor. I could go on. This place is not cheap; we were there in the off season. To top it off, there was an envelope in which to put money for the maid! Never again.
The Village Inn disappoints
The Village Inn's motto emanates throughout their staff, management, policies, furnishings and facilities. And that motto is, "If you don't like it, LEAVE." As so we did, leaving the other 13 families from our reunion to battle The Village Idiots on a daily basis for five days. Their rudeness and arrogance was beyond any level I've ever encountered. If you're looking for a disappointing time, where you are lied to, mistreated, and generally devalued as a consumer, visit the Village Inn at Narragansett.
Not bad- across busy street from lovely beach. room was clean. no light next to bed.

Started the day waking up in a nice comfortable bed in my own room which is the first time since my very first morning on my whole trip. Hanging shared for so long on contiki & then being on a friends couch it was like heaven! Since being in America I've become slightly addicted to raisin bran for breakfast & paul kindly got some for me so I could have it while I'm here. Ray was off today so we decided after much deliberation that we ...

Was a quick 30 minute ride to Manhattan then I had the stress of finding my next bus station. Got there in the end then it was a long 5 hour bus journey ...

Conditions were favorable and we were tired, so we charted the course for Wickford. We arrived back at the dock a bit before 4 PM. This was yet another fabulous summer cruise with our friends. It was also our shakedown ...
... seas were variable through our 4hour 20 minute trip. They ranged anywhere from winds of 5 - 22kts. Seas were from 3-4 ft to calm, typical for these waters and considering a cold front had just passed. Once here, I headed to shore to purchase much needed ice, and some fresh sword fish for this evening's dinner. After a relaxing afternoon, ...
