This property is literally a 2 minute walk from the ferry, they were very welcoming about leaving bags early and had coffee ready and hot. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The next morning I had the included breakfast, which was amazing sitting right next to the ocean. Tons of choices for every picky eater. As... More

The room was pleasant. The bed was comfortable. The pull-out couch was not very comfortable. Breakfast was great and the service was excellent all-around. The hotel has the advantage of being open year-round. If you like walking about in winter, I suggest the 1661 Inn. Block Island in winter is cold but beautiful.

Off-season on Block Island is a wonderful experience--serene, peaceful. And that applies to the 1661 Inn. The service was impeccable: warm, generous, and accommodating. Wake up in the morning. Eat a hearty breakfast--eggs; french toast with plenty of butter and syrup; rolls and bread with jams; fruits and juices; hot coffee and tea. Then head out on a hike--through Rodman's... More

Time on Block Island seems to slow to a crawl. With neither the crowds of Martha's Vineyard nor the snottiness of Nantucket, this place is just an hour away from Narragansett yet far enough away that you feel like you've been away for a week if only for a day. And I mean that in the best possible way. We... More

Easy walking distance to town, great breakfasts and amazing area for cocktails; staff extremely accommodating; but I would visit before Columbus Weekend ...everything closes after that, making meals a challenge.

The Adirondack chairs in the back with a water view and the rocking chairs on the porch were very relaxing. Loved the flowers. Breakfast and afternoon social were great. Staff was very gracious. The inn is walking distance from ferry/town. The room was a little worn and warm, but that is part of the charm. Will definitely stay again.

The Hotel Manisses was clean and very comfortable and the staff very pleasant. We enjoyed our champagne breakfast and afternoon wine and nibbles. The hotel is in an ideal location, close to the harbour, shops and restaurants. This was our first visit to Rhode Island and Block Island, we had been following the fall foliage around New England on our... More

My wife and I stayed one night at 1661 Inn. My sister joined us and slept on the hide-a-bed. She said it was the most comfortable she ever slept. The wine and nibbles were delicious with a great view. The champagne breakfast was equally delicious. The staff was very friendly. The Nicolas room doesn't have a few but it was... More

Very nice suite with King Bed. Right next to the 1661 Inn. Very convenient to everything. I have been coming to Block Island and this cottage for years. Breakfast is included, and in the evening wine and nibbles. Dinner, down the street at The Manisses, is one of the best in town. Not too far to walk with rolling luggage... More
