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

Thank you for your valuable input! We really appreciate your review. You are right about the elevators. There are none on Block Island but it would be great to have them. We hope you visit again - we will help you with your bags next time. More

Centrally located to everything. The room was a good size. A/C was not working correctly didn't complain since we only stayed 2 nights and it was cool enough just using the fan. Great views of the harbor! Stayed just before the season started in the beginning of June was not loud at night at all. Was what I expected for... 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

Wow, they really did some FANTASTIC renovations to this place!! I satyed here a couple of years ago and the rooms were average.... Someone has come through and completely modernized the place. Great beds, A/C and lovely decor.... Great food/wine both downstairs and at the Harborside, next door, too.... Good job!!!

This was our first visit to Block Island and were very disappointed with this Inn. Considering the amount of money they charge you would think they would put some back into making the rooms nicer! The room stunk and the towels were filthy!!! To top it off while getting ready to leave the maid just opened the door without knocking... More

Some friends and I have been making day trips to Block Island for a few years and decided to stay the night on the island. We chose the Water Street Inn as it was one of the only inns that does not have a 2-night minimum! Check-in was very smooth and the room was air-conditioned, clean, and quite large! We... More

This hotel was on the main strip of Block island, so we are definitely close to the main shopping drag (in fact you are one story above it). The hotel is deceiving in a sense, because the main floor is a restaurant, and around the corner of the building is the entrance to the rooms. We stayed in Room #1,... More

We stayed on the second floor corner room with queen size bed. Ocean view. There was no air conditioning but didn't need one because the ocean breeze came right thru the windows and there was an overhead fan above the bed. Very clean and up to date furniture
