The Atlantic Inn is perfectly perched up high on the hill to have great views of the ocean either from your room or just from the Adirondack chairs on the front lawn or on the covered porch. It has an antique charm (which isn't personally my style). The breakfast was excellent and ample. The rooms were comfortable, keeping in mind... More

We had an amazing experience this past weekend at my daughter's wedding at the Atlantic. Brad and the entire staff went above and beyond to create a spectacular wedding this past weekend. No detail went unattended. The ceremony was beautifully arranged on the hill overlooking the ocean. The cocktail hour began with servers holding trays of champagne and elegant appetizers... More

Positives: -Cute, clean room with a private bathroom and a very big closet. -Hotel was clean, adorable, and well taken care of (except the lawn and gardens) -Great view of the island -Great location... it is slightly out of town so feels more private. I liked staying very close to the Spring House which has a more active bar and... More

This is hands down the best hotel on the island. The property is quiet, the views are spectacular, the service is excellent, and the food is delicious. It's smaller and more quaint than the Spring House and in my opinion has the best view. Every morning you can enjoy delicious coffee on the veranda in peace and the best scones,... More

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.

Dear MMelon, Thank you for your review. We love when our guests appreciate the tone we are setting here at the Inn with in your words a "vintage feel". Thank you for pointing our proximity to the ferry as with most of our guests it is often a concern. It is certainly walk-able, but a cab isn't a bad idea... More

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

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.
