Great stay, very accommodating! My boyfriend and I booked a room spur of the moment. We were visiting Paddy's Beach Club and the waitress recommended it, she said that it's a fair price, very clean, and they even give you a complementary bottle of wine...we're there! Upon arrival it was a quaint location with plenty of parking. We were greeted...

Our daughter gifted us a weekend away for Mother's Day. She chose the Blue Whale based on the name. We have a huge blue family van that we lovingly call the Blue Whale. The inn is quiant, nicely decorated, clean, and the beds are very comfortable. We were served breakfast in our room each morning and cheese, fruit, crackers in...

Nice, bright, cheery room. We were surprised that our room actually had three beds - two doubles in separate rooms, and a twin sleeper in a little alcove, which was perfect for our 6 year old to watch DVD's, etc. Also pleased with coffee machine, full size fridge and freezer, complimentary waters, bottle of wine, cheese/cracker/grape/cookie platter...and the breakfast was...

Having to attend our niece's wedding in RI this past summer and living in CA, we weren't sure where to stay in or near the Watch Hill area. Accommodations in Watch Hill were priced extremely high, but after doing a little bit of research on the surrounding area my wife stumbled upon this place. We couldn't have been happier with...

Stayed over Labor Day weekend. Really wanted to get away for that weekend to the beach (about an 8 min. walk to Misquamicut State Beach), so I booked a room for 3 nights at $225/night, which was a lot more than I wanted to spend. It would've been OK, had the room not been so small! (about 11'x10') It barely...

Stayed here overnight to attend a wedding. Great location, and the owners were wonderful and attentive to our every need. Rooms, although small, were neat, clean, comfortable, and very cutely decorated. Breakfast was outdoors and delicious. Bottle of wine greeted us in our room upon arrival. Thank you for welcoming us to your Inn.

The inn is deceiving from the front! It looks like a house, but once you walk around back, it's much more than that and is very inviting, homey, and private! There are numerous seating areas scattered around the property, a beautiful garden, and a lovely area where a delicious continental (actually much more than that - quiche, fruit tarts, etc.!)...

Would've loved to give this a better rating because the owner is delightful, she's created a lovely breakfast spot outside, location is great and the rooms are cheap. Real plus-es. But....rooms are claustrophobic because (as well as being tiny) the windows are sealed shut making the air also stale; cleanliness is poor; breakfasts start too late, after 9am ( because...
