First time to Block Island, booked room on the midweek package. Excellent location, right in center of town. AC worked great. Free bagel/pastry and ice coffee at bakery downstairs. Only stairs so think of that when you pack. We had Maria room, added a blow up mattress and fit perfectly. Large bathroom. Only negative, no where to put wet bathing... More

We stayed in the Ashley House for a long weekend in June. It was lovely! It is above a restaurant which was not a problem. We were traveling with an 11 and 12 year old and they gave us a queen blow up mattress that was very comfortable. The room had A/C, which we needed. It was quiet but near... More

We were shocked that there was no lobby and no service even though the room was $325 a night. They give you a $3 credit for breakfast at the Aldo Bakery. It didn't even cover a muffin and a cup of coffee. Very petty. I was disappointed with how little value you got for the price.

We stayed in the "Anna" room at the Ashley Hotel. The room was clean and conveniently located one block from the Ferry landing and all the shops and restaurants. The breakfast downstairs at Aldo's was good and we also rented bikes at Aldo's. We enjoyed our 2 nights and the room was large and fit the double aero mattress they... More

For the price, Ashley House was fine. The bed was rumpled when we got there and apparently that is the way it was made every day..a tissue and old pretzel was lying on the floor at the foot of our bed and was still there when we left. Worst part was conversation from Aldo's bakery woke us every morning at... More

We recently stayed at the Ashley house in Block Island. It's brand new, nicely decorated and centrally located. On the second floor, above Aldo's Bakery, the hallways could have been a little more well lit at night and the other guests could have been quiter when they arrived from their evening activities at 4:00 a.m. On the whole, it was...

My husband and I had stayed here years before and had enjoyed it so we booked again. Big disappointment. The rooms have not been maintained. Beds were poorly made and overall the whole room just felt dirty. This seems to be a common problem on the island. Perhaps the GMs of the inns all over the island should invest in... More

It's funny how my priorities change when heading to Block Island. Firstly, after visiting the island since I was a kid...I've yet to stay in a 5 star resort on the island and I seriously doubt those types of accommodations exist on the island. We spent 2 nights in the Christina Room, there was a large bathroom, decent sized room... More

We chose this "hotel" because it is one of the few BI establishments that did not require a minimum three night stay on a summer weekend. The rooms are located over Aldo's Bakery on a street right behind the main drag. We were concerned about street noise, but it was never an issue. The place was clean and comfortable and... More

This was the only wheelchair accessible room available when we booked. A bit pricey but we booked late for the height of the tourist season. The room is small but very clean and comfortable, with a spacious bathroom featuring a roll-in shower. It is in a convenient location near the ferry. Except for having to find our way to the... More
