We had the most fantastic time at the WatchHill Inn last weekend. The facilities are beautiful - with the best views. Perfect for families or couples planning to take a vacation and stay for long periods of time. We would highly recommend!

The rooms are beautifully appointed with lovely furnishings and linens and nice wooden floors. The kitchen has nearly everything you'd need to prepare your own meals if interested, including the newest model of Nespresso machine for making the best espressos and cappuccinos!. The duplex rooms with two bedrooms downstairs and living area upstairs is our favorite. A deck on each... More

Its not its neighbor the top-rated American resort the Ocean House which cost a fortune and usually booked up months ahead of time. There are few more beautiful or dramatic ocean views from here, a short drive to Newport and only a few hours drive from Boston or NYC, Its clean and comfortable.

Room with full kitchen (a plus for me), friendly staff, large balcony with nice view of Narragansett Bay, simple, but filling, continental breakfast, low key atmosphere, which I appreciated, if the Ocean House is like staying with your well-to-do in-laws, the Watch Hill is like staying with a cool friend. Great value.

Dear whan p, I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! Our villas offer a number of amenities that come standard, including a full kitchen. As a contemporary casual alternative to Ocean House, we agree that the Inn offers a great value for money. I hope you will join us again soon. Regards, Amanda Tokarski Manager More

Deceitful! Trust me, don't waste your money and time with this place. The branding they portray to be part of the ocean house and or weekapaug inn.. Well, it's not even close. This is a motel. It has old school air conditioning units in the window that blows hot air out on you if you're on the balcony. Gross. Poor... More

I decided to book an overnight here despite reading a review that noted that it was overpriced and overrated, my daughter having been invited last minute to Taylor Swift event around the corner. I wishI had listened to the cautionary tale! This is no Ocean House, despite the affiliation. I wasn't even able to check in at Watch Hill location,... More

Dear ellen d, I regret that your stay was not all you had hoped for. As a villa property, Watch Hill Inn offers additional accommodations that are an extension of what is offered at Ocean House. As such, we do not have a spa, a gym or dining facilities on property as it is just the villas, but all guests... More

My husband, two young kids and I stayed here in August and absolutely loved it. We have stayed at the Ocean House three times before, but the Watch Hill Inn was a better choice for our family. We had much more room for around the same price and all the access to the beautiful Ocean House. I completely disagree with... More

The poor sister of the Ocean House, this inn claims to meet the same standards but falls embarrassingly short. On the plus side, guests at the inn have amenity privileges at the Ocean House, not the least of which is extraordinary beach with all imaginable comforts and services. The Ocean House grounds are breathtaking and the staff is well trained.... More
