Our room was lovely and the price was not bad for high season on BI. Weeknight rates are much better than weekend! We did have a window that faced the harbor. Our AC was a tall machine that stood in the corner and leaked all over the floor, twice that we noticed. No one came to look at it or... More

Waterview rooms may be great, but rooms on the alley are nothing special. Cheap beds, stained sheets, noise of the exhaust fan from the restaurant downstairs. Didn't need the large, in-room A/C unit in September, but turned it on to check the noise level and it was loud.

I just spent two nights at the Waterstreet Inn and really liked it. The check-in at the Harborside Inn two doors down was efficient and the Front Desk Clerk took time to recommend places to eat, where to rent a bike, and where to go on the bike. I chose the Waterstreet for it's modern conveniences; TV, private bath, mini-fridge,... More

Third floor room with 2 queen beds, A/C, fridge, microwave, and killer views of Old Harbor and the water. Super clean and charming. The location is just steps away from the ferry dock. Convenient to everything in Old Harbor and lovely walk along the shore to State Beach.

Kudos to the owners of the Water Street Inn! I returned today from our annual Block Island vacation, and was thrilled by my choice in a new hotel. Block is a bit of an odd place, a "one off" from what you usually can expect on a vacation. Last year, after a stay at the National Hotel, I was ready... More

Stayed here for a weekend away with my boyfriend and it was perfect. We didn't want to spend too much on a room and the Water Street Inn seemed like a good mix of price and location (especially since we took the last ferry to the island on Friday night). From the pictures on Block Island Reservations I assumed the... More

The rooms were renovated recently and were very nice. Nice view out to the harbor and the beds/pillows were comfy. The location is right in the heart of things in the harbor. Walk downstairs and there are numerous dining & shopping options within steps. There's a couple bike/moped rental places right there as well. Not to mention you don't have... More

Thanks for you great review. We really appreciate your opinion. We apologize for the A/C not working properly and will be sure to have our maintenance double check them all. It has been a cool spring so far but they should still be ready for warmer weather. Thanks again! More
