The New Shoreham house is much improved since my last visit in 2012. The interior is new and tasteful. You feel like you have stepped back into the Victorian era in this hotel. Televisions have been added to all rooms and the location, price, and service is excellent. My place of choice for when I want to visit BI for... More

Everyone I encountered who worked and lived on Block Island were warm, welcoming and very appreciative of my visit and responsive to my questions. My luggage was carried and I was escorted to my room as if I were the only person they ever served! All things were done with complete honor and dignity! I posted pics on Facebook and... More

We stayed in the only room with a private bath. We were very happy. The room decor was tasteful. Although there was no air conditioner, the room was quite comfortable. Some might think the location great. But we would have preferred to be a little off the beaten path. Lots of noise. But either way it was quite comfortable.

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
