Old (turn of the century) boarding house. Rooms are awful (really bad beds, even worse pillows, floors slope 15 degrees, window didn't open--occupied by a huge, noisy A/C unit), but it did have a small fridge and organic toiletries. Location is right "downtown," across the street from the ferry. Noisy at night, though, being directly above a restaurant/bar and in... More

Spend your money at the other hotels such as the Hendrickson House, Spring house, Ashley House etc. The management here is beyond terrible! We had rented here and our room was half of the size of the other rooms. Non working TV and fan, BLACK mold resulting in feeling ill, no closets or dresser, not clean in fact beyond dirty,... More

The rooms were comfortable, clean and right on the main road, across from the ferry. We had a fridge and coffee maker in our room. The beds were comfortable and there is air conditioning. There is a place to store your luggage before check in and after check out (which is great). The only downfall (which wasn't a big deal... More

My husband & I stayed for 2 nights recently; great location, very clean... needs new mattress desperately! Would stay again but would not choose room facing water - too noisy in a.m. - fork lifts and ferry noises.... and had heavy footed guests above - would choose room on top floor facing back of building.

I should have been more wary when they force you to make a reservation for a 2 night minimum. I originally knew it would be tough to make it to the island on Friday night, but didn't realize that the island can become impossible to get to with fog, as the planes were all cancelled, and the weather from Boston...

Our room was lovely and the price was not bad for high season on BI. Weeknight rates are much better than weekend! We did have a window that faced the harbor. Our AC was a tall machine that stood in the corner and leaked all over the floor, twice that we noticed. No one came to look at it or... More

Waterview rooms may be great, but rooms on the alley are nothing special. Cheap beds, stained sheets, noise of the exhaust fan from the restaurant downstairs. Didn't need the large, in-room A/C unit in September, but turned it on to check the noise level and it was loud.

I just spent two nights at the Waterstreet Inn and really liked it. The check-in at the Harborside Inn two doors down was efficient and the Front Desk Clerk took time to recommend places to eat, where to rent a bike, and where to go on the bike. I chose the Waterstreet for it's modern conveniences; TV, private bath, mini-fridge,... More

Third floor room with 2 queen beds, A/C, fridge, microwave, and killer views of Old Harbor and the water. Super clean and charming. The location is just steps away from the ferry dock. Convenient to everything in Old Harbor and lovely walk along the shore to State Beach.
