Homestead Suites Review: Warwick, Rhode Island

By Courtney Caldwell

Homestead Not all suite hotels are created equal, so when checking them out make sure to explore all their differences before you commit. Some are bare bones and basic, good for long-term construction workers, while others are more upscale with many more amenities, which are great for women traveling alone or families. If you plan on a long stay, inquire about the long-term rates when making reservations.

The Homestead in Warwick, Rhode Island (RI) offers all the basics as well as many upgrades compared to others, making it one of the more affordable yet comfortable suite hotel chains in the U.S. They offer a well-stocked continental breakfast and provide shuttle service not only to and from the main airport, which is only five minutes away, but also provide shuttle service anywhere else within a five-mile radius, a great benefit of this location because a brand new super-sized Stop & Shop and Lowe's just opened a mile away, making it easy to stock up on all your needs.

At a recent stay in RI, I found this Homestead to be exceptionally clean and quiet. The hallways were so long it reminded me of a cruise ship. The queen suite is the perfect size for up to four people. The difference between a regular suite and a queen is that the bedroom and living room in a queen are divided by a wall, offering more separation and privacy in each room. What was particularly special about the RI Homestead was its close proximity to the I95 corridor making it quick and easy to get anywhere in or out of the tiniest state in the country.

The beauty about Homestead Suites is that they offer a full kitchen with all the necessary appliances for long-term stays. All you need to do is buy your own food, which saves time and money from going to restaurants. There’s also a fitness room, outdoor patio and BBQ grill in an atrium setting, a heated outdoor Jacuzzi beneath a beautiful gazebo, and a tennis court. In fact, the RI Homestead has so many comfortable and affordable amenities that there are just too many to put all in one blog post so instead, check them out yourself at the Homestead Suites website.

In the meantime, if you’re visiting RI and looking for a comfy, cozy, and convenient place to stay, call the Homestead directly at 401.732.6667. I will definitely be back.
