The rooms were comfortable, clean and right on the main road, across from the ferry. We had a fridge and coffee maker in our room. The beds were comfortable and there is air conditioning. There is a place to store your luggage before check in and after check out (which is great). The only downfall (which wasn't a big deal... More

My husband & I stayed for 2 nights recently; great location, very clean... needs new mattress desperately! Would stay again but would not choose room facing water - too noisy in a.m. - fork lifts and ferry noises.... and had heavy footed guests above - would choose room on top floor facing back of building.

I should have been more wary when they force you to make a reservation for a 2 night minimum. I originally knew it would be tough to make it to the island on Friday night, but didn't realize that the island can become impossible to get to with fog, as the planes were all cancelled, and the weather from Boston...

Dear Guest, Thanks for you recent stay with us. We understand that you do not agree with our policy of requiring two nights for your weekend stay here on Block Island. You did however, agree to this policy at the time of booking as well as our cancellation policy. You were not "forced" to reserve with us. This is more... More

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
