Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed Friday night of Labor Day 2013 in the Main House. The room and view were fantastic. The food at the restaurant made for a great experience. We were in the next room from our friends. Upon checking out my friend I were carrying our bags down and found our wives had committed us to Friday and Saturday of Labor Day 2014 in the same rooms. We are looking forward to another great experience. We were in the area last weekend and had another fine meal at the restaurant. We really enjoy the area and this a great base of operations.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with friends

The Ocean Rose Inn is without a doubt our favorite place to stay when we are in the Narragansett Beach area and that is normally quite a bit during the summer!!! First off the staff treats us like family and are always willing to go above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, our favorite rooms are in the main inn but often we stay right in the back which also are very well kept and clean!! The restaurant is also one of our favorites and is probably the best kept secret in that area! Being a restaurant owner and very picky about where we stay and eat I can say nothing but great things about this place!! Thank you for another great stay at The Ocean Rose Inn, Marco and Sarah !!!

Room Tip: If available stay in one of the rooms upstairs

Although the Ocean Rose Inn restaurant was satisfactory, and from the reviews the "main house" rooms are good, DO NOT stay in the "annex"!!! It is dirty, run down, and furnished with "beat up",second hand furniture!!! The draperies were on the rods backwards, inside out & numerous other issues including the lumpiest beds we had ever seen!. Yet, the "establishment" still feels they can charge the going rate. There was a "teenager" at the desk when we checked in who could not be bothered to get off her cell phone and we had to wait some minutes before she was finished with her text. We found it humorous, to find a cellophane window envelope left by the maid for a tip . . . .Although we felt sorry for her/?? having to work in such an awful place, we didn't leave anything as the room and especially bath were not clean. If you do decide to stay here, please check your room!! But best to go somewhere else & not waste your time.

Dear MINNESOTAJOHNSON:
A lot has changed in our Inn since you last stayed in October 2013. Our Annex rooms have all been renovated. The restaurant Turtle Soup continues to provide excellent food and outdoor patio dining. Hopefully your plans will bring you back to the area and stay with us again.

Thank you

Have stayed at the Ocean Rose several times in the main house (not the motel) and found it to be quite nice. Had a lovely room overlooking the water. Turtle Soup Restaurant on the first floor of the Inn was excellent and offered outdoor seating in the summer.

I read some reviews and thought how bad can it really be? It can be bad, believe me now! Room 37 is bad.
First and foremost, a mouse in the room when we came back from dinner, it jumped off the night stand and ran under the bed-there was a hole in the wall that we believe he ran into. We were shown 3 rooms and really did not want to stay in any of them. 1 room reeked of cigarette smoke, another smelled musty. We chose what we thought was the best of the 3. If that is not enough: the carpet was soiled and ragged. There was trash behind a nightstand (a Snyder pretzel bag). The lamp was missing a lightbulb. The toilet cycled constantly adding a little water to the tank every 15 seconds. The A/C sounded like a jet engine pulsing in the room. The base board heater covers were not attached, hanging and in disarray. Why there were dead gnats on the shower floor was beyond me. This room was presented as having a private deck, which was not private at all, it was a passage to the hotels back door. The deck furniture was frayed and pathetic. Some channels on the TV were distorted.

The lady that we talked to on Saturday seemed to be trying everything in her limited power to make things better but she did not have much to work with. When we complained to the man at the desk on Sunday he was not very understanding or accomadating, he shrugged his sholders.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

Thank you taking the time to let us know of your stay and the issues you encountered and bringing it to our attention. We are deeply disappointed that you were not able to enjoy your stay with us. Please accept our sincere apology. I have had the maintenance department and housekeeping go completely through the room and fix and repair all the issues and to ensure this does not happen again.

We stayed at the Ocean Rose Inn for one night over Labor Day weekend. It was the only room I could find close to the beach at an Inn that didn't require 2/3 night minimum stays. The Inn is an old Victorian style home with a restaurant on the main level and maybe 8-10 rooms on the second and third floors. Our room was on the third floor. It had a king bed and was very spacious. The room was clean and the bed decently comfortable. The AC worked well, although a bit noisy, and we also had an overhead fan. The bathroom was fine - shampoo and soap were provided, no conditioner. I normally bring my own toiletries, but forgot this time, which was unfortunate. Also, it doesn't appear that the Inn has Wi-Fi. While the room was overpriced - there is a significant difference between the main house and the "motel annex" - we realize we were paying for location, which is really what this place has going for it. It is walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We didn't have a chance to try Turtle Soup, but it had a good crowd, both inside and outside. {Please also look for reviews on 'Crazy Burger', which is just around the corner. Amazing breakfast!}

Room Tip: Main house is nice - third floor might be best due to noise from restaurant on first floor. You may...

There aren't that many options for staying in fairly affordable accommodations in RI's south county. This motel is a great location just across the street from the water (although Narragansett Beach is now $6/person and the inn provides no passes). We stayed in the motel part, behind the restaurant/inn building. The rooms are very small. We had 1 king bed. The bathroom has only a shower stall, which was a bit of a problem for us since our sandy little kids hate showers. If you are tall or more than 175 lbs. chances are you may not even FIT into the shower. But, all in all, it was a nice room, very good A/C, nice tv and great location.
