I read reviews that complained about the owners' temperament, but I found them to be sweet and making every effort to be accommodating. But they are in way over their heads. My credit card was charged part of my bill prior to my arrival, and they had no idea how that happened. They were very nice about fixing the bill,... More

A reservation was made for a friend. When my friend no showed I expected they would charge a cancellation fee which would have been fine. They instead charged my card which I didn't even sign for and refused to discuss the matter. They rude and hostile. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

We recently came to the Seacrest to have a relaxing weekend, which is exactly what we got. We have been staying at the Seacrest for years the Inn is an older establishment that treats their guests like family. The owners Rita and Jennifer were very personable and friendly, Our chambermaid Ashley was quick to have our room cleaned so after... More

My husband and I recently escaped to Block Island for a long weekend. The Seacrest Inn's prices were lower than most and we were pleasantly surprised with their hospitality! Located *very* close to all of the great shopping and beaches, we also rented bikes downstairs for those farther, scenic outings. Rita & Jennifer, a mother-daughter team, answered all our questions... More

The Seacrest is a simple, old school inn. Clean and simple small rooms. I've stayed at many places on BI and this is my favorite...best value! The owner is a no nonsense proprietor that cares about her renters.

I booked a room here early in July, knowing it was a simple place. While the front desk personnel were responsive to problems, the room was unbearably stuffy. It had a TINY window, facing the street, so there was no air movement at all. I paid $180/night for a room that was basically uninhabitable. The staff said they knew these... More

After missing our ferry on a busy Saturday night, we were happy to discover an open room at the seacrest. However, the next morning when attempting to open the door to the office, we were greeted by an unkind woman who saw fit to call us an " idiot" on our way out the door, thats no way to treat... More

I stayed here recently and all I could hear was the owner screaming at her family and employees. I stayed on the second floor and still could hear her being absurd. Jennifer was very rude and disrespectful. The dogs she keeps in the hotel bark often and smell. The rooms were clean but uncomfortable. I will never be staying here... More
