We stayed in 14B for the privacy of a room with a bathroom - since we were going for one night how bad could it be? The room was clean and two fans were going to provide cooling. The staff was amazing and we could not believe food and accommodations that the sister hotel provided for us. Baggage check was... More

I took the risk (2013/14 reviews were horrifying) booking a room at The New Shoreham House, and I am glad I did!!! I stayed in two different rooms (Room 8 & 14) on the third floor. Rooms are advertised as "basic hostel style" but any person ever staying at a hostel wouldn't agree. Rooms were clean and neat. Room 8... More

OK, so you're staying on a beautiful island, so you can't complain too much. This place though is a hodgepodge of styles and repairs with no rhyme or reason. The beds are old and uncomfortable. There is no air conditioning. Street noise comes through the porous windows at all hours of the night. The shower stall is small and unusual.... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in room 12 on the 3rd floor. Pros: clean room, ceiling fan & table fan, cable tv, central location, 2nd floor deck that looks over the harbor and Main Street, breakfast voucher Cons: shared bath, no a.c. For $99 a night, you can't go wrong!

I stayed here again and followed my own advice from last year's review and stayed on the second floor. I was hoping that our room would be cleaned earlier than it was last year to no avail. So now my theory is that they clean the rooms of the people checking out first, then they clean all of the rooms... More

Found cheetos under the bed. Dirty towel under my friends bed next door.Room 14 bed was old and squeeked. Very steep stairs once to get in and... More

My fiancee and I have been vacationing in Block Island for the past few years with our family. We usually do not stay at New Shoreham House, but decided to try it in July 2013 as a little change of scenery. Unfortunately, we did not have a very pleasant experience. The bathrooms in the hotel were disgusting throughout our stay.... More

I am vacillating between rating this establishment 2 stars (shabby experience as detailed below) and 4 stars (price and location . . .can't be beat!). So I'll settle for the middle and give it a 3-star rating. First for the good: The price can't be beat. $99/night midweek is an exceptionally good rate for Block Island. The room only holds... More

The New Shoreham House is convenient to everything. Rooms are small, No A/C or private bathrooms with the exception of one room with a private bathroom. It was great for the price which includes continental breakfast free or money off a larger Breakfast. We never had to wait or not for long for a shower or to use the bathroom... More
