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 staff was wonderful, lots of amenities. Brand new suites that are decorated so beautifully you'll never want to go home. Nothing beats drinking your morning coffee on the balcony watching the boats in the harbor.

I visited the newly renovated Watch Hill Inn last week for the first time, and I can say with complete confidence that it will not be my last visit! While I was only able to stay for a few nights (I would have gladly stayed much longer!), I got the pampering and relaxation I needed before the end of summer.... 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

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

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.
