We booked the room for 3 overnights and when speaking to the hotel representitive, we were assured this particular room SPRAGUE was one of nicer rooms available and had water views. When we arrived, the room did provide a nice view, however the inside was very run down. Night 1, we were awakened throughout the night by a fire alarm... More

They did a nice job keeping the old flavor (traditional wall-paper and furniture), while making the room comfortable and clean. It was spacious with a nice couch. We had a view of the water from the balcony, which contained two chairs and two lounge chairs. The room included a small refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, beach towel in a plastic... More

We stayed in the 1661 Inn for two nights in late June. We were pleased with our accommodations and the inn's amenities. Every staff member we met went out of his or her way to be helpful in every possible way. Enjoying the buffet breakfast is a nice way to start the day. The buffet provides an excellent selection; the... More

I stayed at the Mannisses hotel in June for 3 nights and I loved this place. The rooms are are small, but clean and very cozy. The hotel is very quaint and amplifies the B&B theme. The employees were very nice and I loved the daily breakfast and the wine hour that are part of the hotel amenities. I highly... More

We spent 2 nights at Hotel Manisses in early June. The rooms are clean, tidy and very comfortable. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast of freshly made omelettes. There is a lovely restaurant onsite with a delicious menu. Both evenings we had a wonderful treat of flaming coffees made to order - great nightcap! The staff were all lovely and attentive.

The grounds are beautiful and the brunch excellent. The view from the brunch area is spectacular. A wonderful way to start the morning. We stayed in the Dodge cottage which is quaint and well kept. There are only two suggestions I might make. First would be to upgrade the mattresses. Ours was quite uncomfortable and second move the cigarette trash... More

The inn is just a short walk from the ferry which was great. We are able to leave our bags at the front before check in and after check out and we were also able to check in early. We got there while breakfast was still being served so my boyfriend thought it was included and got a plate of... More

The Manisses is a relaxing B&B, with a fantastic location - close to town and easy to find! You really feel back in time on Block Island and this hotel adds to that feeling. The Restaurant and bar in the Manisses is incredible - delicious cocktails and diverse menu! The shrimp ravioli pasta as an appetizer was amazing, I had... More

I recently spent two nights at the Manisses. It served me quite well and I was extremely pleased with the hotel. The hotel is a short distance from "downtown", yet is very quiet. I was on the third floor and had a lot of luggage. I was so surprised when the clerk who checked me in asked me if I... More

For the past ten years, I have reserved a room at this beautiful and friendly country inn overlooking the great salt pond on Block Island for the Off Soundings Spring Series. It something I look forward too every year! Chuck T.
