Over the 4th of July holiday we visited Block Island, RI. Block Island, RI is on one of the list's of 100 places to visit. Payne's Harbor View Inn is a beautiful inn, family owned and operated by a long time resident of BI. The inn overlooks the harbor and is only about a 5 minute walk to the beach.... More

My wife and I stayed here during our trip to Block Island and loved it. Good stuff: - Breathtaking views of New Harbor from the property. You can sit outside on Adirondack chairs and have a drink, read a book, or just breathe in the sea air. Just relaxing outside is time well spent. - Excellent location. Very quick walk... More

Perched upon a grand hill, the ocean breeze, beautiful sunsets, overlooking waterfront that offers ocean and bay activities ...The Payne Family has nature front and center stage. The location is walking distance to town and docks. If you are celebrating be sure to ask for the double french door terrace ocean side suite, you will not be disappointed.

We had our wedding at Payne's last spring. We went back and forth so many times on the venue, but then we had an epiphany when we remembered the first place we had stayed on Block and were immediately hooked on having it at Payne's Harbor View Inn. The view from up on this hill, overlooking the harbor and Payne's... More

Spent the weekend here for Block Island Music Festival (such a great time) and the room was tiny but had everything we needed - full bathroom, big enough bed, generally quite clean, and space to hang up clothes/put suitcases. If you're looking for a really quiet or sound proof spot, might want to look elsewhere... but if you are game... More

Payne's Harbor View Inn is a clean inn. I have stayed at the National and Water Street Inn and I like Payne's Harbor View Inn the best. First off, they let us check in early which was great! The views from the place are nice and they have a wrap-around deck. You are away from the crowds, so it nice... More

My family and I vacationed on Block Island over 4th of July week and had the good fortune of spending our last island evening dining here. The sushi menu was ample and we shared a bunch of different plates. The lobster ravioli was excellent as was the grilled pizza. It was BYOB and we ended up sharing our sangria with... More

Lovely Inn, beautiful views, delicious sushi in lovely setting with excellent service. Very clean. We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary. I left something in room and it was sent to me 2 days after I called about it--really appreciated that!

OMG ... I am the biggest sushi snob in northern Bergen county. This place blew me away. A fabulous sunset and the best sushi I have ever had. I kid you not. Excellent service and I know I won't be able to get in here next year on BI. What a find. Romantic setting and excellent food - enjoyed a... More

The sushi is some of the best I have had in my life. The only sushi I have had that was on the same level was what I had in Japan. The Payne and Lobster rolls are just out of this world. Glad I went for my birthday, it created a wonderful experience. Their drinks are also great. the don't... More
