Second visit to the Old Town Inn. After some lesser experiences at other BI accommodations was grateful to find this gem. Welcoming and accommodating hosts, a filling and delicious hot/cold breakfast included. Beautiful and relaxing back deck and expansive lawn that is perfect for breakfast or evening cocktails--a common fridge allows you to keep some supplies on hand. Rooms are... More

My wife and I chose The Old Town Inn after much research. Turned out to be excellent choice. We stayed 3 nights celebrating our anniversary in a spacious light filled room overlooking a beautiful serene property. Lucinda and Dave could not have been more accommodating hosts. Dave's homemade baked goods each morning added a special touch. Lucinda had great recommendations... More

My wife and I have been coming to the Old Town Inn since its opening in 2002. Its owners have run it with steady, mature hands since day one. Lucinda and David Morrison understand what their target users need. The inn is still what it has been from the start, a tranquil retreat on a peaceable island. The television in... More

My husband and I have been coming to The Old Town Inn for over ten years and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. The location is ideal: within walking distance to Old and New Harbors, a bike ride to great beaches, hiking trails and magnificent views. The Inn itself is situated on 4 beautifully landscaped acres and is tastefully... More

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
