Hendrickson House is run by the Harborside Inn and is directly behind it. The location to the beach and shopping is great; however, it is right above a cigar shop and a moped rental place, and next door to a very busy restaurant. The second night of our stay there was a live band going until 10pm. But after that... More

I stayed in the Hendrickson House 2 br apt in August 2012. It was nice upon initial inspection, however, an hour into our stay I noticed my toddler's feet were black. The floor was filthy and my husband had to get down on hands and knees to clean it up. It was probably a summer's worth of grime. No AC... More

Newly renovated, spacious room; however, it's above a moped rental place and other businesses. Loud, drunken people at all hours, can't shut windows because there is no a/c, which normally is fine since nights are usually cool on the island. Also, not enough furniture - there were no chairs at all when we arrived, but just a tall table. The... More

The Pros: Hendrickson House is behind the Harborside Inn so it's right in the heart of Old Harbor. It's walking distance from most ferries (except for the Montauk ferry that docks in New Harbor). We stayed in Room 2 on the second floor. It was HUGE with 2 double beds, 2 huge closets, bathroom with shower/tub, Direct TV, nightstand, table... More

Just came back from a wedding on BI. Hendrickson House was comfortable and clean. We were on the 2nd floor, Rm 2 which had 2 comfy beds and was very spacious with nice hardwood floors. I had no complaints about noise like other reviewers but June is early in the season. Overall we loved Block Island -- the beach, the... More

My friends and I stayed in the Hendrickson House Apartment #2 (3 bed, 3 bath) for a weekend bachelorette party. This is the second place I've stayed in BI, and I have to say it was pretty nice. Wood floors, clearly updated recently, with spacious living room, kitchen and bedrooms. The only major downsides were that two of the three... More

Stayed in room 6 of the Hendrickson House, as there was nothing left in the Harrington House where my friends were staying. Wow did I luck out, as my room was comfortablly airconditioned, modern furniture and very spacious. My only complaint was that the adjacent door for guests entering to walk upstairs was very squeekly and slammed each time someone... More

We stayed in the 1st room on the 2nd floor with the balcony. After reading reviews I thought we were going to walk into something that years down the road we could laugh at but I was pleasantly suprised. It was very clean and a spacious one bedroom. The balcony over looked the mopeds but it was nice to have... More

We stayed at the Hendrickson House, 1st floor unit, during a stay to Block Island. It was a large room (believe it was the handicap room). Hotel is very close to the moped/bike rental spot (right outside the door!). But we rented a moped from them so it worked out great! A separate time we came to Block Island, we... More

Unfortunately this was the only room left and a little skeptical and our first time on BI. We were pleasantly surprised. The handicap room was a little different but very clean and spacious. Great TV, king size bed, pull out sofa and giagantic bathroom. Yes it is noisy there but we were there in off season so not a problem.... More
