Beware is an understatement - this run down B&B is an embarassment to the Hamptons. It's an old historic home turned into a B&B with creaky floors, shared bathrooms, minimal heating, a non exisistant kitchen and even an empty commercial Snapple beverage cooler in the living room area. We arrived on Friday Oct 12th to find keys laid out on a table where we could help ourselves to our room. We carried our luggage up 3 flights of narrow stairs to find "our suite". Inside was a large bed that slept 3 adults, a dresser, a tv with cable and a small bathroom with a tub and a shower head that you would have expected to see outside at a beach since you could turn it side to side to adjust the direction of the water. The highlight of the bathroom was a tissue dispenser with a Martha Stewart logo on the outside - as if they were proud that they paid up for the Martha Stewart logo. This is not what I expected having visited the Hamptons for years - it's the equivalent of staying in a youth hostel at best.
There are typed signs everywhere - telling you what you can and can not do. For example, don't run the microwave while using the toaster in the kitchen area or you will blow a fuse. The shared refrigerator is scarey - I would not put anything in there even it was completly sealed and packaged.
If you are looking for some good news, their location is within walking distance of the main street area of West Hampton and there is plenty of parking in front of the B&B. We had a 3rd person in our room that they did not charge us for. They are also located down the street from Rogers Beach - hopefully it survived Hurricane Sandy.
Overall, please do not stay at this Inn for any reason. A free night is not worth it. We were thankful to have avoided bed bugs. Find another place to stay and enjoy your time out East!
