“Great location ....Excellent Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stayed 5 nights at the Ocean Rose Inn. We had a great stay!!!!! View is fabulous and the staff is Excellent. Alison at the front desk to the cleaning ladies all A+. We stayed in the motel part and the room was fine for what we needed it for. Sleep and shower. Ocean Rose is in the perfect location to walk to many restaurants and shops. As well they have a nice restaurant and bar right there, so at times we never had to leave. We really had a nice time and look forward to retuning in the future.
Thank you to the staff.... Keep up the good work !!!!!!

Despite a great view, the Ocean Rose was a disappointing destination. We were not welcomed by the desk clerk, just asked for our credit card. She did not show us to the room... Offered no help with luggage, and gave us the key to the wrong room! Even, with the correct key, getting into our room was an extreme challenge: the locks are so old that it usually failed to function. The television did not work nor the clock. A trash bag was left on a chair in the room after the room was "made-up." There is no functioning a/c in the public spaces, halls, etc., which is shared with a restaurant (under different ownership.) Rugs and hallways were filthy.
This is advertised as an inn, but no breakfast is available. Agree with another reviewer: even if this place were free, we would not return. It needs a big infusion of cash and staff trained in the hospitality business.

My wife and I stayed over for two nights to attend a wedding in Narragansett. We had a room on the top floor of the main ("hotel") building. The room itself wasn't awful ... decently sized, with a walk-in closet (unlit). The hardwood floor wasn't particularly clean and I wasn't comfortable walking barefoot in the room. The bathroom was poorly laid out and difficult to use -- a small unlit shower and a toilet wedged between the shower and the wall. There was no vanity, just a pedestal sink and a small shelf under a mirror. The bed made up in height what it failed to provide in the way of restful sleep; I'm about 6'2" and had to hop slightly to get into bed.

At least we weren't in the "motel" section, which friends reported was *truly* disgusting ... but at these prices -- even with a premium for proximity to the ocean -- I expect a much higher level of cleanliness and comfort. Frankly, I'm disheartened to see that the Ocean Rose Inn ranks well in the grand scheme of Narragansett lodging. I wouldn't stay here again if it were free.

Rooms were simple but very clean and cozy. We were in a large group with kids so we rented 3 rooms with an ocean view . Staff was very cordial and the rates were affordable. The inn is well located and there is a nice restaurant/ bar next door.

I recently stayed at The Ocean Rose Inn, and wasn't very impressed. I wasn't really expecting much, but when I went to take a shower and saw black mold spots on the shower curtain I was disgusted. The toilette seat had a large stain on the back portion, and that just happened to add to the level of disgust that I was experiencing. I pretty much avoided using the bathroom at all costs, and wore sandals when I showered. The room did have a great view of the ocean and a wonderful ocean breeze, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Thank you very much for taking time to let us know about your stay. The housekeeping manager and I will certainly check the room and the issues you mentioned to ensure the cleanliness of our establishment. We take the cleanliness of our Inn very serious and want to make sure that all our guests enjoy their stay and views of the ocean while visiting the South County Area.

After reading some of the reviews, I realised that we were most probably not in the main hotel, but in the motel section at the back. I contacted the hotel which, was very obliging and offered to move us into the main part, but it was a lot more than we wanted to spend and quoted on the website we booked on. It was with trepidation that we arrived on our first day in the States. However, the welcome we received in the bar from locals chatting to us until late and the room with a view of the Ocean soon dispelled our concerns. It is an older style motel, which you often see in films. The room was large with a very large comfortable bed with french windows looking out to the Ocean. Everything was clean and tidy. The bathroom was compact, with a very small shower, but served our needs.

A bonus is the restaurant where you can sit on the veranda and the food is superb, reasonably priced with good service..

The views of the ocean directly across from the Inn are indeed quite stunning. The staff and I are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay while at our Inn. It is always good to hear that you found our Inn to be clean and met your standards. We look forward to you enjoying that ocean view again at our Inn.

This hotel lacks ammenities that we are used to these days. I dind't pack a hair dryer because hotels these days furnish them in each room. There was no hairdryer so I had to borrow one from the front desk for the duration of our stay. Also, no refrigerators and we didn't see ice machines. This is an older establishment that is more motel than hotel. I would say 1960's. No bathroom vanity, either. It basically serves your needs - bed, bathroom. Found it to be clean and the linens were very clean.
