I would recommend Champlins. The stay was friendly and offered to assist with finding ice, renting bikes and serving us in the breakfast café. Great location to ride bikes to town or walk to the beach. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and grilling on the docks with boating friends. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

My favorite part of our stay was the outdoor pool, breakfast cafe, dock and waterfront bar. I'd give those items 4 stars, but the room was a 0 star disappointment. Our room had not a single window and smelled like mold. I don't think the room was healthy to be in... even an hour. The moisture from the shower and... More

We had a great time at Champlin's last weekend. Cool band at night at the Tiki Bar. Great mudslides! There was mellow live music at the pool in the afternoons which made the vibe cool, too. We found the staff accommodating. The rooms were fine and clean. The food was good, great view from the restaurant! I see a lot... More

The manager was yelling at people, barking orders and threatening to sue some guy. Not a positive environment. I will be staying away. People go to Block Island to chill out and relax, listen to music and forget about people like that. Then wham! You might as well be in a traffic jam for a weekend. I feel sorry for... More

My friends and I booked the adjoining room sets for 5 nights over the fourth of July, and before I get into the atrocious hospitality we experienced, let me start by saying the facilities were FINE. Not nice or luxurious by any means, but as a place to sleep, shower, and keep our belongings, the hotel met our basic needs.... More

I would never, ever, ever STAY at champlins as a hotel for any of the reasons listed below. However in there defense I like stopping at trader vice which is their bar on my boat. I can grab a bunch of mudslides and jump back on my boat and enjoy the harbor. The people watching is fun too. But that's... More

Toured the property on 7/3/15 specifically to inquire about taking on fuel for our yacht the next day. The rooms are run-down and filthy. The pool is a cloudy mess, the various food vending options are at highway robbery prices, and the main dock is a noisy collection of motley vessels rafted together for maximum noise per foot. The dock... More

The service and people are wonderful. We were extremely disappointed with the showers, bathrooms, pool facilities. I don't understand why they wouldn't update the bathrooms/ showers, extremely dated, moldy, most showers don't work, the fuses would trip for the blower dryers. Very disappointed with marina facilities. Great bar, mudslides and bakery!!

I would not recommend staying here. For the amount of money we are paying, some of the staff has no respect for personal property. I just had two dock boys rudely step onto our brand new motor yacht without asking permission and they were going to raft off of us without asking. Nowhere in our agreement does it say we... More

Okay this is a quick crap list of everything i hated about this place. 1. This is a Motel and not a RESORT, Example: think of the dirtiest motel and connect it to a one star Marina. 2. The room smelled like a locker room, and not kept up or up to date. 3. The MFG date code on the... More
