We have been coming to Champlins for the past four years by boat hoping it will improve each year, but sadly it just keeps getting worse and worse. We even have family meet us and stay at the hotel and they were disgusted with the rooms! The showers are dirty and covered in hair! The pool was green, foggy, and... More

Granted it was their Annual Halloween parade/party night. We were awake all night due to the party crowd being disrespectful of other patrons with children who were trying to sleep. Not my kind of place,especially for the price we paid.On the list of never to return.

We knowingly chose to stay at Champlins with our 3 children after hearing just average feedback. We did so because after weighing our options with the traditional inns/hotels in old harbor and rentals this appeared to be the best kid friendly option. We could all stay in one room with air conditioning and a private bathroom - which can be... More

It was my first visit to Block Island, and Champlin's Resort had a swimming pool as cold as ice, their restaurant was closed, and didn't open until the weekend, and I wasn't always able to contact the office when I had a problem!

We sailed into Block Island's Great Salt Pond from Annapolis and headed to Champlin's Marina for fuel, water, and ice. When we approached the fuel dock, no dock staff were on hand to take our lines and help us dock, and tie up the boat. It was windy so it took three tries to finally get tied up to the... More

This place has been going downhill every year. You can tell they are not interested in keeping it up or interested in customer service. Their staff is the worst in customer service, never a smile for anyone except maybe the woman who works in the bakery, and short staffed where you have to wait to get a drink at the... More

We stayed here in August OMG what a mistake, place is dirty, staff and owners (the don't live there) could care less ! Not kept up, some of the guests were so drunk that starting fighting with people who don't drink ! The reviews are true and we will not return.

The room was behind the pool area, you had to go many steps upstairs. Outdated room and bathroom. Beds were comfortable Pool area and grounds unkept. Staff very unfriendly, except the taxi drivers. Playground for kids very nice and safe. The view to the marina is beautiful , but still overpriced.
