DW's Oceanside Inn
Ranked #4 of 12 Hampton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 August 2012

We recently spent 3 days in Hampton Beach and chose Oceanside for it's location (on the quieter, north end of the area) and because we enjoy B & B's. We were delighted with the home and its amenities. One word of caution for "out-of-towners" like us- There is no "D.W." anywhere on the outside of this inn. We must have driven past it 4 times (and the "Oceanside Realty" sign threw us off also). We finally just parked and walked until we realized we were right on top of it. They do have a parking lot way in the back down a back street, but you need to check in to receive an electric gate opener.
Our room was in the back of the house and had direct access to the back deck with sumptious porch furniture. It has a great view of the ocean on one end, and there is bar area there that works on the honor system.
I can't stress enough how spotless this home and grounds are! I walked into the bathroom and lliterally was "wowed" at how sparkling clean it was. We constantly saw people sweeping the porch, washing windows, grooming the garden plants.
We were in Hampton beach for R&R after a very stressful summer, and this place was perfect. They have beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, games, books, etc to just pick out and take to the beach ( a short walk across the street). They are in the basement, where you just return everything and then shower off to leave the beach sand downstairs before returning to your room. It was so enjoyable that we spent 2 days just sitting at the beach marveling at the HUGE beach area. Apparently, all the beach area buildings (restrooms, changing areas, bandshell) are brand new this year, and they are gorgeous. The water was cold, but refreshing.
Breakfast menus are left on your pillow each night with their turn down service. You pick the time you want to eat, and choose from the daily menu (it does change a little). You leave it out on your door handle at night, and they are prepared to serve you in the morning. We are very early risers, so the first morning, we walked down the street to Java Jacks for coffee and a pastry (my treat to myself on vacation ony) because coffee at the inn isn't available until 7:30am. You can only choose one of Skips pastries in place of the egg selection, and so I never got to choose one, But- I never made the mistake of filing up on coffee and pastry again, because breakfast is amazing and filling. The choice of "fruit" vs juice was simply amazing. This wasn't a tiny bowl of melon and grapes. We had bowls of fruits 2 mornings (cherries, melon, berries, peaches, etc) and the last morning was a huge slice of melon with numerous other fruits sliced on top. Skip's homemade toast is scrumptious- wish I had the recipe!! We tried 3 or 4 different jams -all delicious.
There is a deck on the front of the house with the same porch furniture as in the back and is an excellent place to relax as well. There are fireworks on the beach every Wed nite at 9:30 and can be seen just fine from the deck. We chose to walk to the beach- wish we had taken 2 of the chairs from the inn with us.
There was ony one down side for us, and that is that the main road out of town is right next to the inn. It roars to life early each morning and is loud each evening. Since our room faced this road, it was a bit more of an issue for us.
We also received a coupon for Ron's Landing which we used. It is a short walk with delicious food, but we forgot to make reservations, and were lucky enough to be seated at 5pm- by the time we left, the place was packed.
We would defintely return here!

Wonderful host family that has owned and operated this inn for 35 years. Our second floor, uniquely decorated room looked out over the wide, clean beach and ocean. There was a deck where we could sit and enjoy the views and ocean breeze. Our room had two double beds which my sister and I wanted, not an easy thing to find in a b&b type inn. Also had a small gift shop and a back deck with a stocked refrigerator that operated on the honor system. Easy walk to great restaurants; easy drive to the great towns of Portsmouth, NH, Newburyport, MA, and the Maine Coast. Hope to stay there again.

Room Tip: Going off season as we did helps make an ocean view room more affordable.

We stayed at the Inn in august 2011 and had a really lovely time!We liked everything about the place,just so well decorated and pretty!So peaceful and relaxing,its adult only and perfectly located.
It was our first experience in a B&B and we really enjoyed the delicious breakfast before going for a long walk on the beach,which is right there on the other side of the street!Its also perfect to take a day trip to Boston and the area.
The owners are so nice and dedicated to make your stay comfortable and its really hard not to be in a wonderful mood when waking up in such lovely place,so cozy and romantic too!

We like the proximity of Hampton Beach from where we live(Montreal) and the D.W. s Oceanside Inn is definitly THE place to stay to enjoy beautiful New Hampshire!Its an experience you wont forget!

Room Tip: We were really last minute in booking our room so we got one on the first floor near the kitchen,it...

I spent two nights at D.W.'s Oceanside Inn with my husband. We will definitely return the next time we are in Hampton and also recommend the Inn to others. The Inn is located on a quieter section of Hampton Beach, but is still walking distance to all of the action happening on the Beach strip. The Inn is beautifully decorated and each room has its own unique features. The Inn was extremely clean too. The owners, Skip and Debbie were so gracious and very accomodating. They definitely try hard to make it a great experience and are so attentive to the details. At night time, there is a turn down service where they put chocolates and and a menu card for the following morning's breakfast that is served in the dining room downstairs. You fill out the menu card and place your order for breakfast and leave the the card outside your door to be picked up. Breakfast is prepared the next morning for you. Another wonderful feature of the Inn, were the outside porches. The weather was so nice during our stay so we were able to spend time on the outside porches. They have comfortable lounge chairs and also ottomans with plush cushions. It was so relaxing on the porch with direct views of the ocean. Thank you Debbie and Skip for such a great stay. We cant wait to return.

As soon as you walk through the door....You are stepping back in time. The entire Inn is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Each room has it's own individual character. We had a room looking out at the Ocean...I could not help but think (with a little imagination) what it must have been like so many years ago..with ladies in their "bloomer" bathing suits.
We have been going there for the past 19 years. It is wonderful to see that some things stay the same, Including Skip & Deb the very gracious owners. Skip bakes his own breads and pastries...and.are yummy!...They really pay attention to detail...and needless to say...every inch inside and out is immaculate.
Although, I hate to wish my life away...I can truthfully say, I cannot wait to return in 2012.

We were disappointed with the main part of Hampton Beach area. It was very Honky Tonk and dirty. We would not recommend it as a vacation destination. After seeing this unsightly area, we were pleasantly surprised with our accomodations at the Oceanside Inn located at the northern edge of Hampton Beach. The area was much quieter and clean. This B&B is for adults only. The 2nd floor porch is furnished with plush outdoor furniture and is perfect for a beautiful view of the ocean and beach. Each room is uniquely decorated and immaculately clean. The common areas as well as the gorgeous sunporch located at the front of the building were exceptional! The owners were very nice and very helpful. The staff was also exceptional and very professional, each one doing their best to make your vacation memorable. Breakfast was served in a beautifully Victorian decorated room on fine china. The fireplace in the breakfast room was a special treat on a couple of cool mornings.
In order to avoid the Hampton Beach noise, traffic, and dirt, the owners made many dining and tour recommendations for areas and restaurants that are patronized by the "locals," for which we were very appreciative. The beach by the Inn was very nice as well as the beaches further up A1.
I would highly recommend this Inn to any couple wishing to enjoy a memorable vacation or a short getaway.
