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

We had a great time and the brunch at 1661 Inn & Hotel Manisses and Dinner at The Manisses was wonderful! I would stay here again. My only concern was that our cottage run by the Inn did not have WiFi, otherwise, rooms were neat, clean, and quiet! Loved it!

First and last trip to Block Island. Thought I was staying at the Inn but got pushed to their Anchor House next door. Its little better than a dump. Worst B&B type place I have ever stayed in- lights burned out-shower doors that don't close- toilet seats coming off.

This Inn "complex" is charming and very convenient to the ferry and to the town....a 5 to 10 minute walk, set back from the noise of the Main Street. Both the 1661 and the Manisses are surrounded by gorgeous scenery. The complimentary " wine and nibbles" and champagne brunch make this hotel/Inn an incredible value, particularly off season mid week.... More

I would give this place no stars if I could. My wife and I made last minute plans to visit block island and we booked a room here. It was off season and they had a ton of rooms available. When we got to the ferry we found out it was cancelled due to bad weather. We called the inn... More

Having vacationed on Block Island a number of years ago we were delighted to have the opportunity to return to attend a wedding. We chose the Hotel Manisses for the location and because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the very comfortable Palantine Room, a corner room on the second floor. The breakfast was extremely good,... More
