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

Amanda T, Manager at Watch Hill Inn, responded to this review

I am sorry for the confusion upon your arrival. Typically we like to escort guests from the Ocean House upon arrival to acclimate them to the property, unless they request to go by themselves in cases like yours when they arrive early and want to start enjoying the offerings at Ocean House or the village of Watch Hill. While the... More

I just arrived home from our 5 days at the Watch Hill Inn with my husband, parents, 2 year old twins & nanny. We chose the Penthouse Suite (Room 3313) because it had 4 bedrooms - the perfect setup for our group. I was looking forward to our vacation all summer. We have stayed in Relais & Châteaux hotels all... More

I apologize for some of the frustrations you experienced during your stay. As a villa property of the Ocean House, it is procedure to first check in at Ocean House (so that you can get acclimated with the property and the offerings available to you there) and then be escorted down to the Inn so that our staff may show...

From the moment we arrived to the Grand Ocean House we just fell in love. Did our pre-registration with a very nice gentleman named Louis who offered us a bubbly glass of champagne. He then introduced my husband and myself to the Ocean House property. It was just so lovely. Then we proceeded to drive our car to the Watch... More

We booked here as the Ocean House was fully booked. The pluses... We paid for harbour view deluxe, so yes the mini apartment style room was stylish and well appointed. However, the bedroom is on the corridor side (think motel with everyone passing by the window all eve and night). There is lots of noise from other guests and the... More

As Ocean House typically is full during these summer months, we opened Watch Hill Inn with the intention of providing an option for those who perhaps found Ocean House to not quite be their taste, but wanted to enjoy all the perks of the resort. Additionally, as Watch Hill Inn rooms are all suites, we wanted to have an option... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. Service was excellent. Parking attendants, valet, check in, everyone was wonderful. That said, paying $1000 a night for a view of the parking lot is hard to take. The access to the Ocean House was fantastic, however you aren't given priority because you are staying at the property. The revamped rooms are well done... More

The suites at Watch Hill Inn are priced similarly to standard guestrooms at Ocean House (and are comparable to other seaside resorts in the high season of July and August; you will find lower rates outside of these two months) however they provide full kitchens and a much larger space (to accommodate full families) than you would get in a...

Ocean House is gorgeous. This is red headed step child down the hill. Accommodations are fine but there is no comparison to the grand dame up the hill. We arrived and there was no one there to greet us, so went up hill to OH. A wedding was going on so was huge effort just to find some one to... More

As a villa property of Ocean House, check in for Watch Hill Inn does occur at Ocean House, where you’re then escorted down to the Inn (following a brief orientation to explain what guests of Watch Hill Inn have access to at Ocean House). I do apologize that it was difficult to find a staff member to assist you amongst... More
