Rustic OLD historical building, bare bones/no frills/no so pretty rooms, GREAT location. I had great service at the front desk and at the bar and restaurant, but the entire inn IS staffed with teenagers working there for the summer (I spoke with a few who said it's mostly students from Bulgaria, Serbia, etc). They were definitely distracted with each other,... More

I was taught that if you've nothing nice say, say nothing at all. I have to depart from this teaching in this case. The good thing I can say is that the Inn is consistent. The woman taking my reservation couldn't get anything straight no matter how slowly and clearly I spoke. She had to call me back a couple... More

Arrived on August 23, 2013 to find the shared bathroom was shared with seven other rooms. The shower and faucet was filled with soap scrub and mold and I thought the shower curtain had black spots for a design it was so filled with black mold. Breakfast was included both days. The eggs, sausage, homefries and pancakes were all cold... More

This is a typical Block Island stay - open air windows instead of air conditioning, no TV, etc. But the island is cool with a constant breeze, so the A/C is not needed. Additionally, the hotel has a beautiful deck that overlooks the water. The hotel is located just a short walk from town and remains a quieter choice for... More

If you are familiar with Block Island this will not come as a shock to you. Expect no AC, no TV, and no phone. The rooms are small, as well as the bathrooms. Outlets are very inconveniently located, so you may have to request an extension cord to locate your fan near a window. All of that being said, the... More

Ok, I was told I would have the "2 bedroom suite", but that it had low ceilings. Fine. The "suite" is the third floor attic of their out building that consists of two small bedrooms at the top of a steep staircase with the bathroom directly at the top of the stairs. As others have said, no AC, but the... More

Went for a wedding with a few friends. We booked the 3 bedroom suite. Price was very agreeable, but we were not thrilled with the reality of our choice. 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with 2 twins & one with a single shared one bath with a shower stall. It took some scheduling and flexibility, but it... More

We had never been to Block Island and had a hard time picking a place from the many scattered reviews about the places we were considering. My wife and I were there for a few days on business. We expected basic rooms, old structures and limited amenities. We found a friendly inn keeper helping us chose the better room for... More

This place is a cute little spot to rest your head. No its not a luxury hotel, but I found it to be just about what I was expecting and the location is UNBELIEVABLE. No AC, no tv, no phone. But, I did not want those things. Thats what we were getting away from. The staff was friendly and accommodating.... More

Between the filthy rugs, closet-sized rooms, peeling old paint, and general decay/neglect, this place places at the top of my must-miss list. We stayed one night and promptly fled for far better (and less expensive!) accommodations. Not sure what the reviewers who have sighted improvements were seeing - could it possibly have been worse?
