The room was small – so small we couldn’t get around the bed without knocking things over. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was a shabby, do-it-yourself production that we could have done better if we hosted breakfast at home. There was a lot of street noise at times during the night. That said, the bed was clean and comfortable.... More

It was a last minute reservation, costing over $300 for one room w/private bath. One of the bathroom walls had buckling plaster under the paper and the bathroom door didn't close all the way. Seriously, with those prices, can't fix'em? You say "we can't fix what the customers don't tell us about" because you hope every time you get a... More

Overall: as one of the cheaper places, it's a good place to drop your bags and then head out into town, but probably not the best place to be on a rainy day. Stayed in the Daffodil room at the Sheffield for 2 nights. The Sheffield is up the hill from the main part of town but not as far... More

I am surprised to see that the Sheffield House is so low on this list. Although the decor is slightly dated, it is an absolute gem! We checked in at the end of September at the main office and were walked down to our room at the Sheffield House, as the innkeeper was on her way down the hill. After... More

House is quaint and conveniently located across from the general store. It is a short walk to main street though it is uphill on the way back. Staff was lovely and rooms though not updated are clean. We'd definitely stay again.

While on the road, I made a last minute reservation by mobile phone to stay at one of the properties managed by "Block Island Bed & Breakfast", which includes the Sheffield House. The employee I spoke with said if I were to cancel there would be $15/day fee. I put down a deposit for two nights for $640. I ended... More

Able to come and go as we pleased, but would have appreciated some personal interaction with innkeepers. Breakfast was disappointing.

My wife and I wanted to visit Block Island for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. We chose the Sheffield House and it was perfect for us. Diane the host was very knowledgeable about the island and also very helpful. We had the smallest room in the B and B, and while it was small, it was very clean,... More

Overall, the Sheffield was a good, though not perfect, place to stay on Block Island. On the plus side, it has a great location -- a <5 minute walk from town, away from the hectic, noisy mid-summer evening revelry. The accommodations are good, clean, with nice details. Also, the prices are good compared to some other B&B/hotel options on the... More

My husband and I stayed at The Sheffield House during our first visit to The States. We loved the B&B and haven't got one bad word to say about it. The location was good, bit of a hill to walk back up of an evening time, but this was no problem as it was good exercise after over indulgence in... More
