We recently attended a picturesque family wedding at the Atlantic Inn. Beautiful setting and a quaint hotel. Accommodation was small but clean. Bathroom and shower were tiny - small sink with little room for toiletries. We were on the second floor and I have to say the room was warm. No a/c. The food was good, porch is wonderful. Staff...

Recently attended wedding here, like going back in time 75 years. Good food, good service, lovely setting. Stayed at nearby hotel. Walkable from downtown area and ferry, although walk might be a little difficult if you had a lot of luggage.

We just returned from two nights at the Atlantic Inn on Block Island. The accomodations were delightful for us traveling with two granddaughters. The Inn is beautifully situated on a hill with great views below and a rolling lawn for relaxing and eating. The surrounding area is beautiful and the Inn is extremely well maintained. Our room was delightful. Mid... More

We had a lovely time at The Atlantic Inn on Block Island. We always feel happy and relaxed after a visit there. The setting is beautiful, the staff is really nice, and the owners, Anne and Brad Marthens, went out of their way to make our stay lovely. We loved sitting on the porch or in Adironack chairs on the... More

great view, wonderful porch, delicious appetizers, rooms small but comfortable; some waitstaff not totally tuned into guest needs *I was reading on the beautiful, scenic porch; I asked to have the piped-in rock and roll music changed to something more serene; was told not possible. *my wife spilled wine on her dress and the initial response was, "no, we don't...

The Atlantic Inn was a most refreshing experience for us. The amenities are exquisite, but with a homey feel. The staff were superb and the accommodations couldn't have been better. The breakfast were awesome and filling, nice views from the dining area too. Great location with ocean views and great sunsets. We will definitely return for another visit.

First , we have stayed at many quaint New England hotels like this and this and usually we are very happy . Here is a list of the issues. First , $325 +tax for the tiniest room. 3rd floor. Narrow , steep stairs and you might expect they have someone to help with luggage but no. You might hope for... More

The staff, the Inn ,the food and most especially the lovely views from the veranda were superb. My husband and I just couldn't get away from relaxing on the veranda and enjoying the view. Late afternoon cocktails and tapas are wonderful! We made a last minute reservation and even a small room in the back of the Inn was delightful!... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn. The staff and accommodations were perfect for enjoying biking and beaching on the Island. Delicious dinner in the dining room and tapas on the lawn at sunset is a dream. The bar is a cozy spot for a night-cap. We were on the third floor and there is no air conditioning so... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! I gave this hotel two stars because Block Island is beautiful and the hotel is nicely located. The staff was courteous and the grounds were clean. Nonetheless, our room was horrible. We paid $360/night for an ocean view room. That tiny window was broken and we could barely see out. The room was so small -... More
