I am a travel agent, and have been fortunate enough to stay in some really fabulous hotels around the world, but the views from our windows in room 5 and 6 at the Barrington Inn are right up there among my favorites! My family has been coming to Block Island for years, and we love the laid-back, casual feel, so... More

My husband and I have visited Block Island for over 20 years. We've stayed all over the island, from the hotels across from the ferry, Inns in New Harbor, house rentals with great views. The Barrington Inn is at the top of our list for places to stay. The location is convenient to town and beaches, our view from room... More

We were very happy with our room which was quite spacious and had a lovely view. The Inn is walking distance to town and the beach and very close to New Harbor fun spots. But it's quiet. Not fancy but clean, well- run and a very good value.

My first impression of the Barrington Inn was I was not impressed. I have been to many B and B's and Inns and this was probably the most bare boned I have been to. It is very much a "your on your own" type of place. The owner was friendly when we arrived and gave us a quick review of... More

We had a very nice stay at the Barrington Inn. My fiance and I stayed in Room 1 (has a full bed and two twin beds- all that was available when we booked- would have been idea for a family), and its own little porch with rocking chairs. Breakfast was decent, bagels, english muffins, blueberry muffins, fruit, cereal, french toast,... More

My husband and I along with another couple stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment located on the property. It was the perfect set up with an eat-in kitchen family room, full bath and an expansive private deck overlooking the Great Salt Pond. Breakfast at the Inn was included in the price and it was delicious! Several options were offered on... More

I and my three girlfriends from high school stayed two nights in the Fleur De Lis room on the third floor of the Inn at Block Island, leaving our 13 children and husbands behind. We were delighted with the entire experience at the Inn. The room was spacious and clean. We had bagels, English muffins, cereal, coffee, tea, OJ, fruit... More

This is my 2nd time at The Barrington. My boyfriend and I and another couple stayed in one of the 2-bedroom suites. The view was marvelous, the location is perfectly situated between old and new harbor which was both walking distance. The Inn keeper was very friendly and accommodating. She even picked us up and dropped us off at the... More

Overall - The location was decent, the place was clean, we had a private bath and they had beach towels which were all a big pluses. The room was decent size, clean and the AC was nice but overall it seemed expensive for what you got. I think a few little upgrades could go a long way. The room had... More

Everything was great! Good location in between New and Old Harbor, clean rooms, great scenic view of the island, delightful daily breakfast, and the owners are very accommodating. Definitely will be choosing Barrington Inn again next visit to the island. Treva
