“Loved the Grassmere Inn”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

My husband and I book an overnight stay at The Grassmere Inn and had a terrific time. It is in a convenient location in the heart of Westhampton Beach. Close to shops, restaurants and the beach.
Our room was clean, comfortable, we had our own personal bathroom. Peter was a great host and really made my husband and I feel at home. My only regret was that we could only stay for a night. Next time longer!!

Defiantly would recommend and would stay again.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect on the 2nd floor, we had a king size bed. A/C was great!!

We just got home from a week away at the Grassmere. What fun we had. This old Inn is exactly what we needed to make our vacation perfect. Here we were in Westhampton Beach and loving every minute. Leaving the car at the Inn in the evenings and walking into town was beyond lovely. The whole area of the Hamptons is just so much fun...the dining, shopping, the beaches, renting a boat for the day...it's all right there. The Grassmere makes the Hamptons as affordable as possible. The Inn has impeccable service and a personable staff. It feels like a home away from home. We miss the delicious breakfast already!

We read mixed reviews and had some foreboding after making our non-refundable reservation through Hotels.com...

It was FINE. We had a great time.

The place is soulful, friendly, clean, quiet, and cozy, steps from downtown Westhampton Beach. The owner, Peter, has kind eyes, a caring and conscientious manner, and has his hands full with a Victorian white elephant that survives despite draconian local ordinances and the complexities of dealing with a landmark building in a highly regulated town.

The building is beautiful, but shows its age. It's "funky," but not unclean. It could use some paint, maybe there's a little rust around the bathroom sink drain, the stairs squeak - but it's sparkling clean and the staff is attentive, alert, kind and competent. If you want to stay in a pristine new building, go elsewhere. If you want local color, authentic hosts and a lovely beach experience, this is the place for you. We loved it and had a great time.

We were looking for an inexpensive getaway while visiting the East end. It was not only decently priced, the staff was friendly, the place was warm and inviting, and the accommodations beautiful, Highly recommended for anyone looking for a laid back, stress-free vacation.

We have just come back from our weekend trip from the Hamptons. The Grassmere Inn hotel is lovely and very clean, decorated very tastefully and historically. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful, we felt like we are at country home with our family. This bed and breakfast hotel is in a great location, short drive by car to the beach area and one block walking distance from the main street of the most adorable town. The breakfast food was good. This week we are returning to stay at The Grassmere Inn hotel again for a repeat visit. We would recommend the hotel for a relaxing few days or a holiday with a wonderful friend or a family.

westhamptontennis, Owner at Grassmere Inn Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, 9 July 2014
I am the owner of the Grassmere Inn and take every single inquiry, reservation, and complaint seriously. I previously wrote a response to this review but also sent a note to the guest as I was disappointed he did not enjoy his stay. I have subsequently removed my previous response as I now understand his concerns. And, I know write a new response !!! I am very appreciative he took the time to write and he was in fact a guest. We focus on cleanliness and service as we are not a fancy property. However, we are super neat and clean, simply furnished in a great location. Our housekeepers are given twice the amount of time the industry standards suggests to clean our rooms. We then have a front office person inspect and sign off on each room. Finally, a second front office person must inspect and sign off on each room. We recently removed beautiful Stark Carpet which was in great condition. We either reclaimed the wood floors by sanding and applying poly or we installed a beautiful wood laminate. This makes it much easier to clean. However, it is a little noisier than having carpet covered floors. I personally handle 98% of the phone inquiries and attempt to contact every single guest prior to arrival including those who book online. We want all to have realistic expectations and then we try to meet or exceed them. Regardless of what one pays, he/she is entitled to immaculate conditions and realistic expectations. The room this guest stayed in is a small room (9 x 12) with a comfortable bed, ac, brand new wood floor, and a large bathroom. He was shown the room and elected to stay in it prior to being charged.. . He also was not happy with breakfast. However, the breakfast included fresh muffins and bagels from a nearby great bakery. Cereal, 2 types of fruit juices, fruit salad, milk, coffee, tea, English muffins, peanut butter and oatmeal. We do not have a commercial kitchen so are not permitted to prepare eggs, pancakes, French Toast, etc. There are not many places to stay in the area as operating accommodations in the area is beyond challenging. IF one is looking for incredibly neat and clean accommodations with working ac's, great service, and round the clock staff, we are potentially a good choice. The beach is beau;tiful and down the street. If one is seeking flat screen tv's and marble bathrooms, he/she will likely be unhappy in most accommodations in the Hamptons. Feel free to call me if interested in staying with us. 631 288 4021 Peter Kaplan

I am a little late writing this review but did not want to pass on the opportunity to share my wonderful time at the Grassmere Inn. I stayed at the property over Memorial Day weekend and could not have asked for a better time.

Peter, the owner of the property, was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. I received a call from him a week before my arrival to ensure that the room he was selecting for my party fit our needs. I'm surprised at other reviews because the owner if very open about the condition of the property. Yes, it is an older building but quite frankly that adds to the charm and appeal. It is a darling bed and breakfast, it is in the PERFECT location, and the staff sincerely cares about each guest's experience.

Grassmere around the corner Main Street in Westhampton Beach. It is less than a 2 minute walk to lovely high end consignment boutiques, restaurants, and a theatre. It is also less than a 3 minute drive to the beach.

Our room was clean and in order upon arrival. I stayed in room 9 on the second floor. The room was fairly large and there was plenty of space for luggage. Overall it was quiet in the evenings, and we had no issues sleeping.

Breakfast is provided each morning. I don't know where the bagels came from but they were seriously the best bagels I've ever had. They also had fruit, yogurt, juices, coffee, and tea. Peter was more than helpful in providing suggestions for places around the area and local restaurants.

I would definitely stay at the Grassmere Inn again.
