We were pleasantly suprised when we arrived at Payne's Harbor View Inn. The place is run well and is beyond clean. Our room was on the 3rd floor and the room and the bathroom were huge. This is the first time I went to Block Island and I can't wait to go back and stay at Payne's Harbor View Inn.... More

This place is the best to stay at Block Island.The rooms are great decorated, There you can feel the spirit of Block Island, even the Inn is the newest on the island. The service is more then fine. The best place for young and not so young couples. The View makes you feel like you are in the heaven. We... More

This was our first trip to Block Island 8/17-8/19. Coming from Long Island we took the one hour Montauk Viking Ferry to the New Harbor dock, which is very close to Payne’s Harbor View Inn. We reserved our ferry tickets and parking in advance to confirm availability. We also packed light in backpacks and brought our bicycles along. Payne’s Harbor... More

My husband and I stayed in room # 9 which has a harbor view and 2 person jacuzzi. the room is huge and beautifiul and so is the bathroom and even the... More

My husband and I felt very relaxed during our two day stay at Paynes Harbor View Inn. We were greeted by a very nice woman by the name of Carol. She showed us around the inn and explained where we could find whatever we needed. She told us about the delicous Paynes donuts that are made daily..and she was right.... More

Came here after friends stayed and said it was all-new. All I can say is new was about the only positive thing about Payne’s. The service was non - existent. The breakfast (or what they call breakfast) I would not feed my Irish Setter. Worst part was the doors were always wide open and one night people just wondered in.... More

This was our first trip to Block Island and Payne's Harbor View Inn came highly recommended. We were more than pleased with our stay there. The receptionist and staff were very friendly and helpful. As we were first timers to the island, we had many questions and they were more than willing to assist us. The rooms were spacious, clean,... More

Our second stay at Payne's Harbor View was just as nice as the first. My wife and I prefer the spring and fall seasons on Block Island to avoid the bustle of vacationer's. Bringing the car from Rhode Island helps to explore the island. Or you can rent a used car on the Island. This is an advantage in case... More
