While attending a wedding on Block Island, we stayed 2 nights at the Hygeia House. After spending nearly $200 per night, we were extremely disappointed. The house had a lovely antique feel about it in general. The linens in the bathroom were frayed and there was no bath mat. The bed was lumpy and the room was small. The breakfast was the most disappointing. On the second day, there wasn't even the fruit salad as there had been the day before. The baked goods all seemed to be store bought, and very mediocre. The kitchen, off the dining room, was a mess. Although the staff was not rude, they were not overly welcoming either.
On a positive note, the location was good. We were able to walk everywhere. The porch and yard were great for hanging out.
For the same price, I have stayed elsewhere and gotten much more for my money. Although I feel the Hygeia House could be spiffed up, I think they should begin improving the breakfast.
