Room was exactly as advertised on Block Island Reservations. Small, clean, great for the price, Perfect location. Stayed here before and will defintely be staying here again. The room wasn't ready when we arrived on block island at 11 am, went there to check in anyways. We left our bags at the hotel in a back room, and they left... More

The room is dated and small, but it is clean and the location can't be beat - you walk straight up to the hotel from the ferry. The bed was comfortable, the staff was incredibly nice, and the restaurant was really good as well. They give you a coupon for continental breakfast or $4 off the restaurant's breakfasts, which was... More

GOOD Location: Across from the ferry, right in the hub of things. BAD Tiny room, no chair to read Uncomfortable double bed with sinkhole in middle. No lobby, no chairs Used towels in bathroom from previous guest. Ice bucket bag also used. Sheets?? (Shudder) Very unfriendly help. Did not feel welcome.

Old hotel with small rooms but clean and neat. Staff was excellent. All very polite and well trained. We checked out and left two small pillows behind and didn't notice it until we had left the island. We called the hotel, they found the pillows, and arranged for their return.

We loved staying at the Harborside Inn, the rooms were exactly as described, clean and simple. Sure the hotel is old and the stairs lean, but as far as our accommodations were, we were very happy. They provided our room with everything that we needed including a hair dryer. The staff was very pleasant and the waiters were on the... More

The hotel has a great location in the heart of old harbor and there is a great front porch to sit on and eat, drink and people watch. Unfortunately if you hit poor weather, there is no place inside to sit. Our room was passable-old but not dirty. The service is not great- the hotel (and the rest of the... More

I traveled alone for a wedding shower and my room at the Harborside met my needs perfectly. It is conveniently located, clean, very simple and small. It was a bit loud at times, plumbing and other guests, but overall it was a very good value for the money. I traveled in early June so it wasn't too hot and I... More

We had been so looking forward to our two-day mini-vacation on Block Island, which we'd never visited before. The Harborside was a few steps away from the Block Island Ferry dock, and although the June 1 weather was stormy and chilly, we didn't care -- we'd be able to look up from our non-work-related reading and gaze at the ocean...

My husband and I have been taking advantage of Bock Island Reservations' "Discover Block Island" package for the last seven years. We love our little get away each year! We go the same time of year and stay in the same room. It's a very laid back, relaxing vacation for us and a GREAT value for money! Please keep in... More
