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!

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

This is the second time we stayed at the Manisses and it was still as good as it was two years ago. Our room the Pocahontas was comfortable and clean. It was the same room we stayed in two years ago. We really enjoy the atmosphere of the place and the morning breakfast is always a treat with plenty to... More

My husband and I recently spent three nights at the Guest House. The Mott room, with partial ocean views, was pricey at $290 for the quality of the room, but from my research it appears that this is in ballpark of most rooms on the island. The setting and grounds are beautiful with incredible views. The overall setting put us... More

I stayed at the Manisses Inn and really enjoyed my one night. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was awesome! It's a terrific place very convenient to the ferry and the folks employed at the Manisses and the 1661 were excellent.

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
