Although the room was small it wasn't uncomfortable. If we stayed longer than two nights though it might have been a little tight. The hotel has a great porch that was just built and has lots of wicker furniture to lounge on.
My biggest complaint is probably minor to some. The tv only had three channels and they were all fuzzy. If this doesn't bother you than it's good. We brought our portable dvd player in anticipation of this.
Another thing worth mentioning is that the rooms do not have an alarm clock or phone. Therefore you will need an alarm of some sort if you want to get up by a certain time. All of the electricity in the room is controlled by the lightswitch. Therefore if you don't flip the switch you can't watch the tv. We discovered this when we tried to watch tv during the day and our tv didn't work.
Overall block island is beautiful and worth a visit. The room doesn't matter to me much so it wasn't a big deal, but to some the size and run down furnishings might be a problem. Go here if you just want a room.
