My daughter and I stayed here 2 nights, and found our room large, bright and airy and the beds very comfortable. Dave's breakfasts were wonderful and Lucinda very knowledgeable and helpful.. She steered us in the right direction for dinners, bike rentals, and even helped us make a last minute change in ferry plans doable..... It was a great experience.

We have returned to the Old Town Inn for the fifth consecutive year now. We fell in love the first time and have been back every since. The inn keepers are wonderful people and we feel like it is a family reunion when we return. We feel like its our home away from home. To us it is a 5... More

I love staying here. The owners have a huge, beautiful garden. They are located just far enough out of town where you don't have to listen to all the traffic and noise pollution, but close enough where you can still walk to most places. They also make delicious quiches for breakfast.

We concur with all the other great comments made about this charming place. Wonderful food, friendly and helpful proprietors, beautiful grounds, clean room. It's a 1-mile walk to the beach or Old Harbor, which gave us exercise and a quiet retreat to return to. We'd love to return.

My husband and I have been coming to Block Island for a few years. We love the low key vibe of the Island. This year was our first stay at The Old Town Inn -- we could not have been more thrilled with our choice! Dave and Lucinda are the consummate host and hostess. Beautiful (delicious) homemade breakfasts in the... More

My fiance and I recently took our first trip to Block Island and were completely blown away by the Old Town Inn. The room was clean, bright, and airy. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful. Breakfast, prepared fresh every morning by David, was absolutely delicious and Lucinda gave some great recommendations for places to eat on the Island. We could... More

We have been to Dave and Lucinda's immaculately kept Old Town inn the last 4 years - every July 4th week/end. It is always such a pleasure from our warm greeting to the delicious, hearty (and healthy - lots of fresh fruit salad, yogurt and cereal too) breakfasts- Dave is a talented baker and breakfast chef - no need for...

The on site owners / inn keepers, husband and wife, David and Lucinda, are terrific! Without hovering they addressed our every need, offering helpful advice from the ferry to fun things to do, and everything in between. Their inn is very well kept, inviting, and comfortable. The common areas are lovely and David's breakfast buffet is exceptional. We enjoyed the... More

The Old Town Inn on Block Island is immaculate, comfortable, and spacious. David's breakfasts are delicious. Four couples stayed at the Inn, and we enjoyed getting together on the deck, in the dining room and in the yard. We would definitely stay with Lucinda and David again, and we would recommend the Inn to any of our friends.
