The Inn at Old Harbor exemplifies what Block Island is. We have been twice. Most recently from our private balcony we watched a stunning sun rise on the ocean. Closer, the sun reflected off one of the most beautiful beaches that there is...and that was just a few steps away. We were lured from our room by the smell of... More

I love this place as much as I love Block Island!!! And I am not sure what came first! The Inn at the old harbor is so inherent in everything that the island represent: a genuine black and white postcard of a nostalgic charming family owned hotel, that set you back in time like a time machine. The squeaking bed,... More

We stayed in room 8 with balcony overlooking the East side of the harbor which is nice. We did not consider you are on the business end of all commercial properties on the harbor which is audibly apparent by 7 to 8 AM each morning. Our shower didn't work on arrival which was repaired that evening with a new water... More

This is a really great place to stay. Our room, room #2, over looked the harbor, had a private porch and was extremely comfortable. We will definitely stay here again. However, there was 1 staff member who was nasty, rude and could use a lesson in customer service. I don't know her name, but she had long dark hair, darkish... More

Very inviting inn in Old Harbor, Rooms were spacious enough and very clean. Staff is very nice and helpful. A bit noisy at night but you are right downtown and if you turn the fan on it covers the noise. Would stay here again. :

We just returned yesterday from a weekend visit. We stayed at The Inn at Old Harbor and really enjoyed it. The rooms are VERY clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was warm but we had fans that really helped keep us comfortable. They have fresh ice water out for the guests all day and that was... More

What can I say this was an excellent place to stay on block island...we stayed in the only 2 bedroom suite (room 7) that the inn has. I woke up to the ferry and a wonderful breeze every morning from sleeping with the balcony door open . The room was very clean and so was the bathroom. Roses are my... More

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.
