My husband and I stayed at the inn for two nights in early September. It was an easy walk from the ferry and we followed the prompts posted on the check-in desk upon arrival. Rafi appeared, gave us the low down on the inn, and showed us to a nice suite on the third floor. We were very comfortable there... More

Loved the inn and room 8 was amazing!! The view was incredible and we can't wait to get back! Also enjoyed the wine and cheese and live music on the front porch. A real memory. So close to the amazing beaches and yummy restaurants. Even the ferry ride from Montauk was fun.

It is a favorite for many returning guests! It's delightful when we have guests or local friends who play music on our balcony during wine and... More

Just returned from a weekend on Block Island, staying at IOH. Perhaps they were not prepared for a busy weekend (last weekend in September with beautiful weather in the 70s). Prior to our arrival was told by the Innkeeper that Rafi would tend to us at check-in and that they would hold our bags if we got there prior to... More

Let me start by saying I apologize up front for this negative review but I thought it only fair to share with potential visitors to Block Island.

We are disappointed that your stay did not meet your expectations. We feel fortunate to be the closest inn to the ferry, and many guests enjoy watching the ferries come and go from their balconies which overlook Old Harbor. Wine and cheese at 5p is a popular tradition at IOH -- it's a relaxing time to meet other inn guests... More

Best part is the 2 nd floor balcony for cocktails. Rooms are clean and cozy- staff very friendly. Recommend Rebecca's for fresh clams, Mohegan cafe for pub food! Bike or... More

We stayed at the Inn at Old Harbor while attending a family wedding. Inn is conveniently located right off the ferry. Room with small porch was charming, staff was attentive and accommodating. All Block Island Inns have small rooms but the common area and outside porches gave added space and made connecting with our friends a breeze. Ryan and the... More

Inn on Old Harbor was great for our 3 day stay on Block Island. We stay on BI every year, but this was our first time at the Inn. It is in the heart of everything... the ferry, Ballards, shops, ice cream, restaurants etc. The innkeeper, Kim, was wonderful. Cant say enough about her hospitality. Our room was much smaller...

We had a great stay at the Inn at Old Harbor. Great location and a very nice room. But what really made the difference was the innkeeper, Kim, and her crew.
