My boyfriend and I made reservations months ago and could only get into the Dodge House. We were a little nervous we really wanted the 1661 house. When we checked in we asked if there were any cancellations at the 1661 house, and there were!!!!! YESSSSSS. The room was the Edmond Room and it was their " HONEYMOON SUITE" it... More

Had a wonderful stay at the 1661 Inn on Block Island, the room was well appointed and the view of the morning sunrise was spectacular. Our host was very gracious and the buffet breakfast that comes with the room is excellent. All of the Inn's staff are very pleasant and polite, willing to assist you at any time. I would... More

I'll start by saying the hotels on Block Island are all rather expensive, it is an island after all, and there are many places with shared bathrooms. So it's not unsurprising that the hotel was expensive for my taste. The breakfast was substantial and not something that most other inns include so that was nice. However, I wouldn't by any... More

No service. No information about hotel coffee in the am. No one offered to help with bags up 2 flights of stairs. No snack bar. When I asked for ice was told to go to kitchen and get it. For the money hotel was very disappointing. Breakfast at 1661 was delicious. Dinner at hotel in restaurant was delicious also and... More

Every time we have stayed at the 1661 we have been impressed by all the attention to detail. The staff are wonderful. The food is the best on the island. Our room was LARGE, clean and quiet. Wonderful!!

The hotel has updated facilities since our last trip. The conveniences are more modern but it still has all its charm. The breakfast is still incredible. The dinner at the Manisses was a highlight of the trip. TIP: Have the special coffees they serve in the lobby after dinner, its special.

Stayed for one week. We stayed in Palatine with spa tub. Very large room tastefully decorated. Staff at this hotel are all very friendly and genuinely warm. Breakfast is included at the 1661 Inn which is 100 metres up the road from the hotel. The breakfast was very nice with variations each day. The complimentary wine and cheese in the... More

We had an amazing time on our recent stay at the 1661 Inn. We stayed in the Colfax suite and everything was incredible. Boris truly went above and beyond. He was great with us. We can't wait to go back.

We loved our stay at the Hotel Manisses. My husband and I were looking for a charming, laid back, convenient place to stay on Block Island and the Hotel Manisses fit the bill in every way. For those who care about robes in the rooms, high end toiletries or turn down service, this is not your place. There's no air... More

What a great find, and totally by accident. Value, service and good food, if you find those three things today when you travel the chances are you had a good time. This place has got it, in SPADES! The price for a resort during the Labor Day rush was more than fair. The service from check in to check out... More
