Third time staying at this place. My Mom and I have been going for a 2 night mother/daughter vacation for 3 years now. We always stay in the same room (205). Ocean view. Room and bathroom are always clean. LOVE the restaurant/deck downstairs. The breakfast is the best. The lunch/dinner food are also delicious. Love sitting on the deck late... More

The answer to everything seems to be that "this is a hundred-year old hotel." No elevator (and nobody to help you with your bags), narrow and steep stairs, no hair-dryer, no in-room fridge or microwave, and all for a high price. No wifi on the third floor, so you have to take your computer down to the lobby and hope... More

I actually feel sorry for some of the people who wrote negative reviews. They must be so unhappy! Yes the building is old. Yes the stairs and hallways are wonky. Yes the rooms are super tiny. Get over it and enjoy! The room was clean. The air conditioning worke. The location was perfect! The view from the porch is beautiful!... More

Even though they had a no refund policy, had to leave for Family emergency, without asking, they said they would most likely rebook the room and refund for the full amount. They did. Very honest, many places would not do this. I will definitely come back

You cannot beat the location of the Harborside Inn. You step off the ferry and it is directly in front of you!!! We had gone with this hotel as our regular inn was not available for the weekend we needed. Staff was very friendly and check in was easy. We had requested a water view room which unfortunately is the... More

We have been to Block Island two years in a row and stayed at the Harborside Inn both times. The location of the hotel is great. It is on Water Street in Old Harbor and close to everything (ferry, shops, restaurants, & beaches). That being said, the rooms are rather cozy and very basic. The "free continental breakfast" is a...

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.
