My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in room 12 on the 3rd floor. Pros: clean room, ceiling fan & table fan, cable tv, central location, 2nd floor deck that looks over the harbor and Main Street, breakfast voucher Cons: shared bath, no a.c. For $99 a night, you can't go wrong!

I stayed here again and followed my own advice from last year's review and stayed on the second floor. I was hoping that our room would be cleaned earlier than it was last year to no avail. So now my theory is that they clean the rooms of the people checking out first, then they clean all of the rooms... More

Found cheetos under the bed. Dirty towel under my friends bed next door.Room 14 bed was old and squeeked. Very steep stairs once to get in and... More

My fiancee and I have been vacationing in Block Island for the past few years with our family. We usually do not stay at New Shoreham House, but decided to try it in July 2013 as a little change of scenery. Unfortunately, we did not have a very pleasant experience. The bathrooms in the hotel were disgusting throughout our stay.... More

I am vacillating between rating this establishment 2 stars (shabby experience as detailed below) and 4 stars (price and location . . .can't be beat!). So I'll settle for the middle and give it a 3-star rating. First for the good: The price can't be beat. $99/night midweek is an exceptionally good rate for Block Island. The room only holds... More

The New Shoreham House is convenient to everything. Rooms are small, No A/C or private bathrooms with the exception of one room with a private bathroom. It was great for the price which includes continental breakfast free or money off a larger Breakfast. We never had to wait or not for long for a shower or to use the bathroom... More

The New Shoreham House has a nice, affordable place to stay for an early season (June) weekend on Block Island. We brought our bikes over on the ferry. The house and hotel are right across from the ferry dock, just walk across the street and check in. They have a bike rack behind the house. And provide tickets for either... More

Okay, maybe I exaggerate a bit about “19th century,” but up-to-the-minute modern it’s not. Then again, neither is Block Island as a whole, something which is, without doubt, a part of its charm. Anyway, guests at the New Shoreham House should be prepared for things like 30+ steep stairs of walk up, no a/c, bathrooms down the hall (and, of... More

Right on the main drag - easy walk to Ballards. Very friendly staff at hotel next door where we checked in. We were there on the hottest day of the year so the lack of AC was a challenge. It's also very loud because you have to sleep with the windows open. However overall it was very good. We'd stay... More
