We have stayed at many places on BI over the years and this is the best B&B we have visited. Karen is a wonderfully gracious and attentive host! Not only is the property spotless and beautifully maintained, the little details make your stay simply wonderful. It can best we described as "coming home" every time you step foot in the... More

My family and I stayed in room 1, which contains one full and two twin beds. The room was neat and clean. I was worried the room wouldn't be big enough for my husband and I along with our two children. We have stayed in hotels before and usually the kids have to share a full bed and they were... More

I have stayed at this inn several times on Block Island as well as the other inn owned by the same people. We have always found the Barrington to be a great spot as it is quaint, not in the middle of the hustle and bustle but still very close and convenient to everything. The inn keeper, Caren, is very...

I am a travel agent, and have been fortunate enough to stay in some really fabulous hotels around the world, but the views from our windows in room 5 and 6 at the Barrington Inn are right up there among my favorites! My family has been coming to Block Island for years, and we love the laid-back, casual feel, so... More

We were very happy with our room which was quite spacious and had a lovely view. The Inn is walking distance to town and the beach and very close to New Harbor fun spots. But it's quiet. Not fancy but clean, well- run and a very good value.

My first impression of the Barrington Inn was I was not impressed. I have been to many B and B's and Inns and this was probably the most bare boned I have been to. It is very much a "your on your own" type of place. The owner was friendly when we arrived and gave us a quick review of... More

We had a very nice stay at the Barrington Inn. My fiance and I stayed in Room 1 (has a full bed and two twin beds- all that was available when we booked- would have been idea for a family), and its own little porch with rocking chairs. Breakfast was decent, bagels, english muffins, blueberry muffins, fruit, cereal, french toast,... More
