We were on girls weekend. Had a great stay at Ocean Ave Property, Apt 1E. Everything was clean and had what we needed Two points I'd like to make - The microwave does not work. - You could use a mirror in the loft bedroom....as kids aren't the only ones staying up there. We had one large mirror in the... More

Was a little shocked for the price of the room to arrive and find it all a little shabby. Breakfast was excellent and the view fabulous. Service was sweet but slow and unpredictable. Mannises restaurant a bit of a disappointment as well. Food was mixed, my husbands was very good, mine average but the setting was nice. After waiting 40... More

My husband & I had a wonderful trip to Block Island and our stay in the Sprague Room in the Guest House of the 1661 house was perfect. From the moment we arrived until we checked out the next day nothing could have been better. We were enthusiastically greeted by Boris at the front desk and even though we arrived... More

The Hotel Manisses is a great place to stay. The rooms are very clean, the free breakfast is delicious, the staff is excellent and the wine and nibbles at 4 pm is an extra free perk. I would stay here again on my next visit.

I absolutely love staying at Hotel Manisses! The accommodations are outstanding. The best corned beef hash I've ever had @the breakfast buffet. Wine and "nibbles" in the afternoon is so relaxing after a day on the beach or shopping. After our delicious dinner (best swordfish ever) we always enjoy a "flaming" coffee on the front porch and chatting with the... More

The room in the Dewey cottage was surprisingly very neat and clean, it's updated although no airconditioner but it was not an issue, it was in the high 60's when we stayed there. We rented a moped so getting to our cottage from the the Manisses where we checked in was not a prob. Our ferry came in at around... More

Great Room with Deck and ocean view. Staff accommodating and courteous. Always willing to help and provide good information. Restaurant recommendations were great and met our expectations. Afternoon wine and snacks were a good break from a hectic day. Prepared us for an exciting evening.

Although we didn't get to stay in the Hotel 1661 with their fabulous views, our stay at the Dodge House was very pleasant. We were fortunate enough to have a room in the back. It is a short walk up the hill to the 1661 where we had a fabulous breakfast in the morning and wine/cheese in the afternoon. The... More
