We stayed shortly after Columbus Day, 2013. The place is old and worn which is not a surprise for an old place in an island in the Atlantic Ocean. On the plus side, the price is good for Block Island, don't go looking at BI on the cheap and expect a top shelf place but it fit us fine. It... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Gothic Inn for two nights and found the accommodations to be a great fit for us. We loved the view, enjoyed the rustic vibe and delighted in the continental breakfast. This place has a ton of character, an ideal location and cozy bedrooms. The staff was lovely and helpful, even responding to an... More

I loved the location of the Gothic Inn. You can walk to most everything around the downtown area. Breakfast served in the morning and the staff was friendly and welcoming. THere are rooms in the Inn and in the building next door. Yes there was a little noise from the nearby bars but it wasnt enough to keep me up... More

The room had a terrible odor and was dirty. The only thing good was the location. Do not stay here! There are so many nice places on Block Island to stay for the same price. Next time I will either stay at The Spring House or the Payne Inn.

This was our second trip to the Gothic Inn on Block Island and it is the most perfect place to stay! Not only is the location ideal (walking distance to town and the beach) but it's super dog-friendly. But when I say dog-friendly, I don't mean run-down smelly rooms: I mean beautiful rooms that are spotless in an environment that... More

The most important factor for us is pet-friendly, and The Gothic Inn is one of a few on the island available. The building itself is well-aged, and the rooms are small without alot of extras. But that's not why we're there. Block Island is beautiful for walking around with our dog and enjoying the local businesses, restaurants and people. Alton,... More

Just back from 6 nights with my boyfiend and dog and had a lovely stay. The apartments are cozy and clean. Not keen on shared bathrooms so not sure what the main house rooms are like. Alton did a nice job running things and the owners are personable and nice. You're just out of town, surrounded by cool shops, decent... More

I've stayed here twice mainly because it is dog friendly, I was surprised to see it got such terrible reviews. Yes it's a bit warn, but in general clean and a good location minutes from the beach etc. You can also see the water from the rooms I've stayed in. As far as the no AC thing, I don't think... More

First off, Block Island is such a wonderful place in itself that I do not think it matters where you shack up…just as long as you’re there. My husband and I chose the Gothic Inn, mainly because it was within our price range and dog-friendly. However, we got much more than we thought. We stayed in one of the four... More
