80+ DEGREES for 2-3 days in OCTOBER! Decided last minute to book a hotel on Block Island...called the Atlantic Inn--never stayed here. It was glorious, Views breathtaking-hospitality outstanding.Room gorgeous and inviting. Breakfast--gourmet! Manager Meghan more than accommodating--even gave us a package price! (Tried to book through BI reservations--said I needed a week in advance?? Those people are losing you business!!)... More

There is a lot to learn before you even arrive! Most of our reservations staff has been living and working on the Island for many years now and has tons of information to share.... More

Contradictory reviews of many BI hotels made for a difficult choice: We were very happy with the Atlantic Inn: small but comfy 3rd floor room on corner had plenty of fresh air and with ceiling fan no problems with early august heat (80's) during the day, upper 60's at night. Easy walk to downtown, but far enough from the crowds.... More

Thank you kindly for this review and your feedback! Although we do not have a bellman (as we are a small Inn) we are always more than willing to assist our guests with their luggage to the second and third floor. Sincere apologies if that was not offered to you upon your arrival - a rare mistake for us! Yes,... More

Having never been here before, we had to figure a PLAN B for our group of 12 when we found The Spring House to be off limits due to a wedding. What a great PLAN B The Atlantic was! We were there during the beginning of Race Week & we had a circle of comfy chairs and a great server... More

Wonderful cocktails, especially the Old Fashioned in the Ball jar. Don Draper meets Green Acres. The tapas selection is varied and creative. The staff always are there to assist, take your order, and check on you.

Although the Atlantic Inn is advertised as having modern amenities, apparently this does not include air conditioning. My husband and I discovered this after arrival on a 90 degree day in July. We were on the third floor of the Inn in a 10x 8 foot room with 2 tiny dormer windows and a ceiling fan. When it became apparent... More

We are sorry that you were displeased with your visit and the accommodations at The Atlantic Inn. Unfortunately, the abnormal heat wave that loomed over the Eastern United States and Block Island is not something that can be helped as it was an “act of God” so-to-speak. It is very rare that the Island sees such heat and humidity since... More

We have gone to Block Island for summer vacation for 3 years now. This was our first, and last, stay at the Atlantic Inn. We stayed at the National last year and loved it, but due to the noise from the activity on the front porch and the traffic on Water Street we decided to try a quieter location. The... More
