DO NOT STAY HERE! I gave this hotel two stars because Block Island is beautiful and the hotel is nicely located. The staff was courteous and the grounds were clean. Nonetheless, our room was horrible. We paid $360/night for an ocean view room. That tiny window was broken and we could barely see out. The room was so small -... More

This was our first time on Block Island and we loved it! The Atlantic Inn was a very good choice as it is perched on a hilltop with a lovely view yet is quiet as it is a short walk out of town. The porch is wonderful and has great cocktails and wine, and tapas. We dined at the restaurant... More

We have visited the Atlantic in on three separate occasions over the years but it just can't get any better. The Inn Keepers, Brad and Ann are great people. They treated us with the utmost professionalism our entire stay. I think the thing I like most is the disconnect from the outside world. No TV, I didn't search out news... More

The Atlantic Inn is my favorite place to stay on BI. Spent many a night with family and friends for years. The inn is beautiful and sits high on the island - the ground and views are beyond words. Staff couldn't be more helpful and accommodating! Everyone seems happy at the Atlantic...which makes most visitors happy! The porch in the... More

This was our third visit to The Atlantic Inn. The last time was in 2007. I am sad that it has taken us 7 years to get back to Block Island and The Atlantic Inn, but it was definatly worth the wait. The Inn is just as I remember it, just as beautiful and peaceful as ever. As we travel... More

If you are looking for a quiet location with magnificient views of the island and one of the island's best restaurants then you need to check out the Atlantic Inn. We stayed in one of the queen rooms which was adequate with a private bathroom, ceiling fan and floor fan which keep us cool at night. From what we understand... More

Stayed for two nights next door at The Spring House and wanted to stay one more night. Called The Atlantic and booked the last room. The lawn/porch service late afternoon into evening was incredible; the views, the sunset, the appetizers and drinks! Every person working there was professional and unassuming. Had dinner in the small bar and the wonderful food... More

We had our wedding at the Atlantic Inn, and it was absolutely perfect. The food and venue were amazing. Brad coordinated everything better than we could have imagined, down to the signature cocktails that people are still talking about to this day! We come back every year to sit on the porch and reminisce.

Just came back from BI for Memorial Day weekend. We had an awesome meal at the Atlantic Inn. Best meal I ever had on BI. Service was great, the view was amazing and the dinner was out of this world! I will eat here again!

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
