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

Very pleased with our stay at New Shoreham house. You can't ask for a better location coming right off the ferry with luggage. Its merely a short walk and if you arrive early (before check in of 3:00pm) no worries because they have a surveillance camera equipped luggage room you may use to store your things. Front desk people were... More

$99 a night on Block Island is a bargain, no two ways about it. One might expect a less-than-clean guest house, but New Shoreham House exceeded expectations. Not only is it well located on the main drag, it was clean, cozy, friendly, and comfortable. The downside is shared baths, but there are two on each floor, and we never had... More

We stayed in the only room with the private bathroom during the week (m-f). The Good: Inexpensive, lots of clean towels and good quality products (shampoos etc) given daily, lots of windows (so even without air conditioning it is cool enough to sleep at night in July), nice porch and common area, room has TV and large table with two...

Folks, first face up to the fact that you're dealing with the owner of a monopoly here, that services over nineteen properties on the island, so if you're looking for the personalized service you'd expect elesewhere, you won't necessarily get it here. Pros: the room (17B) has a nice private bathroom, and the room is spacious. Location is great within... More
