“Nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2008

We had to make plans to stay on BI last minute due to a quickly planned family wedding in which my husband was the best man. It was very difficult finding a B&B that allowed children, so I was very relieved when the Gables Inn allowed my 3 year old. The prices are reasonable and the location is excellent, right in the middle of all the fun, stores and beach. We stayed in a small private cottage with a kitchen and two beds, porch and living room- very comfortable and clean. We even decided to stay an extra night because we were so happy. I definitely recommend staying here and plan to return!

The inn is quaint and charming. The inkeeper, Barbara, was very friendly and helpful. Nice assortment of breakfast items. The porch was a relaxing place to sit and watch the activities. I expect to return.

Arriving at this inn was a little disappointing, the inn was quite cute tself & had a great balcony basiaclly on the road you could sit out on. The breakfast was basically inedible pastries unfrozen for the morning, the owner was not particularly helpful in giving advice for tourists & overall the rooms were small & overpriced.
Block Island is a beautiflu place to visit, so well worth making the effort to find an equally beautiful place to stay.

This is a neat old place. Located right in town, the inn offers a porch that's great for people watching. The guest rooms were very nicely done in an old Victorian style. If you want quiet, though, be warned that it is in town. There is a lot of noise in the summer when the bars are letting out. Not much you can do about that. The Island's best coffee shop, Juice n' Java is right across the street. Funky, eclectic, great coffee and pastries. They also have an annex up the street a couple of doors. Haven't been there yet. All in all, a good choice to stay.
