It's a great place to spend a week. The location is GREAT. The proximity to the beach, food, shops is amazing. The atmosphere is wonderful Ned the staff can't help enough. Love it and bring your Sunday best. You'll want to have a dress up evening to visit OH.

A getaway is supposed to be about relaxation and the Watch Hill Inn understands that. They have the perfect staff that understand a customers needs. Visitors will get the most perfect view of the harbor at sunset. There is nothing like it. It is convenient to everything in the village and a parking perk is that your car is hidden... More

This was our first time staying at the Watch Hill Inn and enjoyed a very pleasant two-night stay. We arrived at the Ocean House for check-in where they gave us immediate access to the Beach and then coordinated a hassle-free move into our room. The suite was very nice, clean, well-appointed and the views to the harbor were "as promised".... More

Room with full kitchen (a plus for me), friendly staff, large balcony with nice view of Narragansett Bay, simple, but filling, continental breakfast, low key atmosphere, which I appreciated, if the Ocean House is like staying with your well-to-do in-laws, the Watch Hill is like staying with a cool friend. Great value.
