4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Inn is very quaint, clean, and conveniently located to main stores. There is a good breakfast buffet every morning, and wine, cookies, and cheese in late afternoon. The room was comfortable but lacked some basic amenities. The innkeeper is very pleasant and knowledgeable about places to eat. If you are looking for a relaxing get-away, this is the place... More

Block Island is a a great getaway, the Blue Dory Inn and it's associated buildings are a great place to stay. Ann is a charming and caring host. The main hose (the Blue Dory) is an eclectic Centre of activity...where you meet your fellow travellers for breakfast and share there stories of yesterday and plans for today...I found it to... More

We stayed in a very quaint cottage overlooking the beach. The innkeeper was very knowledgeable about Island attractions meeting our specifications. We met lots of interesting people and had a very romatic getaway. We were walking distance from the ferry yet more private tucked away from the main road.

You walk into the Blue Dory and you know you're in for a charming Bed and Breakfast experience. First you meet Ann, the innkeeper and you know that the comfort of her guests is her number one priority. Then you realize that shops and restaurants are out the front door and the ocean out the back. Combine that with wine... More

My husband and I just stayed for 3 days at the Blue Dory Inn. This was our second time. Both of us grew up vacationing with friends and family on the island and still do an annual family vacation there so we have a sense for what true island life is like. We don't come to the island to stay... More

We spent one night this week at the Blue Dory. It's a charming and quaint little Inn that is located in the middle of town, close to the ferry, shops, restaurants and beach. The rooms are on the small side as might be expected for an Inn, but yet there is plenty of space and the bed was very comfortable.... More

I have to admit I was a little bit nervous because if you look at all my reviews, I tend to stay at modern hotels which are oceanfront. While there are many more pet-friendly options these days, as pet-friendly as Block Island is, there are not a lot of options to stay with a dog. I have been reading Trip... More

Very pleasant stay, great location...chairs and towels for the beach was a great plus...since you have to travel light, we were on our bikes...breakfast was available until 10am...which was a nice feature to have...if you slept in...you were able to have a cup of coffee...

It's less like a hotel and more like an old friend's house. The location is perfect, the staff is excellent, and our time there could not have been better. We had a great time at the Blue Dory and look forward to visiting again. I'd recommend it to anyone.

On the plus side - The Inn is small and located within walking distance of everything in Old Harbor. It was our first visit to Block Island and did not bring our vehicle so this location was perfect for us. (Although we did rent mopeds to see the entire island). The cleanliness of the rooms and commons areas was extremely... More
