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

Just got back from a 3-night stay at the Barrington Inn. The best part was the beautiful views of the harbor. Otherwise, this place is not worth the considerable cost. The inn is somewhat run-down looking; it needs some new paint and to have the many spiderwebs cleared away. The screen door to our veranda was very ripped. The bathroom... More

Just came home from a 3 night stay at the Barrington. We had a wonderful time and the innkeepers were very hospitable. The rooms were very clean and had A/C, which is a luxury there, but needed. Carin was very helpful in recommendations for dinner and she made us feel at home. John went above and beyond making us feel... More
