My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at the 1661 Inn and given the price, we were very disappointed on many levels. First, there is no air conditioning; instead there were 3 fans! While the temperature was not unbearable, the humidity was a problem. Then there was the lack of attention to many details: there was a thick, black... More

This was the first time that I stayed at the 1661 Inn & Hotel Manisses. We stayed in the Anchor House which is right across the street. The rooms were beautiful and very clean! The included breakfast was incredible and the included wine and cheese at 4 was a treat not to miss. The entire staff was extremely friendly upon... More

The breakfasts were wonderful as was our dinner at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and well equipped, but try to avoid the "Almira" room on the first floor as the ventilation and privacy aren't great.

My brother died and this hotel would not allow us to change our reservation. Unbelievable. The timing of his death did not fit into their policies! Please advise if they own other properties so we can avoid them.

After my awful stay at the Island Home Inn, I decided to move an stay at another hotel in hopes of recovering and actually staying at a great hotel, and it was a great decision, the food was delicious, the people were kind, and the walk in shower was the cherry on top. It truly was an exceptional hotel to... 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.
