We have been coming to B. Island for over 40 years and the last 8 have been staying at the Manisses. We recently stayed at the Dodge Cottage , off season on Manisses' dollars and as always had a great time. The facilities are always clean and very comfortable. We especially wanted to commend and praise Rita Draper for accommodating... More

Beautiful room, friendly staff and a great ocean view. Throw in a wonderful complimentary breakfast buffet and how could you go wrong! I know there were other guests, including children, but we never heard a sound from our room.

My husband and I stayed at the 1661several years ago and enjoyed it then, but now, with the newly refurbished rooms it is really special. Our first floor room had a wonderful view of the water. Clearly, the staff's goal was to be welcoming make our stay comfortable. Breakfast alone can make the stay a must!!

I loved the quiet beautifully located Inn close to town but away from town. The rooms are comfortable cozy and each unique and differently decorated and styled. The staff is wonderful friendly and efficient. I couldn't recomend a place to enjoy Block Island more enthusiastically

My boyfriend and I stayed at the 1661 Inn and had an amazing experience! Going to Block Island off-season is a little risky because not many of the shops are open and there is not much to do, but just the hotel itself was worth-while. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are amazing, it is especially worth... More

We did not figure on finding such a place. Block Island in winter. The 1661 Inn greeted us with warm,informative Cathy, who showed us to our room, named the Simon Ray (they all have names in the Inn). Canopy bed, comfortable bathroom, large glass doors opening from both the sleeping section and a most cozy reading area. There is a... More

We had a great time on Block Island. The 1661 Inn was perfect. Everyone was friendly and polite. The room was very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. The shower had great pressure and the whirl pool tub, oh my goodness, it was heaven. The price was perfect and the included breakfast was delicious and filling. We will most certainly... More

We stayed here 2 nights for a wedding. The property is cute, and the breakfast is incredible. Our room was really underwhelming. It was in the side house, and it was TINY. It was old, it had no AC, and while it had some "charm", the walls and floors were tilted badly. We also had to share a bathroom with... More

Loved staying at the 1661 during their off season. The accommodations are clean and homey, the people that work at the Inn extremely friendly and helpful, going above and beyond helping me track a lost iPhone via the search. It's walking distance from main town strip and hope to visit again soon.
