Not only does Christine help you park the car when you first arrive but she is so personable that she actually escorts you to your room, unlike other hotels where they just give you the keys and directions. Whenever you need anything, fresh towels, or something special for breakfast she will go out of her way to make sure your stay is perfect (even turning the air conditioner on before you arrive). It was my first time going to Misquamicut, so once we arrived we found a specialized cake waiting in the room that read "Welcome to the Beach", nothing beats the amount of hospitality you will find at the Blue Whale Inn.
The wine and cheese hour was entertaining and you were able to interact with the other guests in a calm setting, under a canopy tent lit up by lights. Breakfast the next morning was even better, a whole long table filled with muffins, bagels, donuts, pastries, danishes, and fresh fruit. As well as a side table with drinks and fresh orange juice.
The room itself makes the stay great; the air conditioner cooled the room in under 10 minutes, and the quilted bedding gave it a country feeling that isn't like other hotels with the plastic feeling comforter, and the beds were so comfortable.
Due to the hospitable staff and wonderful atmosphere we will definitely go back, and would like to make it a tradition of going down every year.
