While navigating our way about Block Island my wife and I found The Inn at Old Harbor. It was time for lunch, we stopped in. The view is wonderful the drinks, Lobster roll and Fish & Chips outstanding. Delightful lunch break in the day, really need to plan a dinner there.

Went there this summer with a few couples and couldn't have been more pleased. The rooms were spacious and super clean which I am very particular about. The staff was so friendly and helpful it felt like I was staying at an old friends house! Location can't be beat! Would recommend to anyone.

The two bedroom suite was small, cramped, hot, musty smelling, worn, and not anywhere near worth the $399 a night charge. The pictures on the website are not indicative of the rooms. The staff were lovely, but proprietors are not on site. Of the three bulbs in the bathroom light, two were missing. The bathroom is the size of a... More

We're dismayed that you did not enjoy your stay, and we wish to clarify some details in your review. There is a great cross breeze in the suite with the windows and balcony door open as the room faces Old Harbor. The lightbulbs in the bathroom were immediately replaced, and wifi is available in the rooms, but it is definitely... More

I was Leary of the location do to the proximity of the ferry and main thoroughfare however it was an excellent experience. Very friendly staff, complimentary breakfast and daily wine and cheese, and allowing us to store our bags until we departed. Be reminded that there generally is no AC in any of the hotels so ask for a room... More

We're so happy you enjoyed your stay during Race Week on Block Island. IOH is the closest inn to the ferry, and while there is no air conditioning in the building there's a great breeze that comes off of Old Harbor each evening around 6p that cools down the inn. We're glad you enjoyed our staff, light continental breakfast and... More

We were a bit nervous as we learned he time we chose to get away was 'race week'. Fortunately, the Old Harbor area was not too crowded. We came in on Saturday and left on Tuesday. After Saturday it was pleasantly quiet on the streets. The inn gets the highest marks for cleanliness. We are talking serious cleaning going on,... More

Thank you for your detailed review. We're glad you appreciated IOH's housekeeping and cleanliness. IOH is located in the heart of Old Harbor, and it can be a bustling area. We are lucky to be within walking distance of all that Old Harbor has to offer: beaches, restaurants and shops. Island wifi does vary in strength, and it is strongest... More
