“great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

Everyone was very friendly - the room was simple & clean all you need on Block Island as you don't spend too much time there. I was a little apprehensive about the shared bathroom situtation but they were well maintained day & night. The location was great not directly in hustle and bustle but not a far walk from anything including the beach. Breakfast was included which wasn't expected - very nice way to start the day - drinking a cup of coffee overlooking new harbor.

The Mott family has owned this property for decades and is now running and managing the Inn themselves. The rooms are all super clean with new linens. It is still a historic and rustic Inn, and is a great Block Island experience.

Let's begin with the three weeks it took to make the reservation. Poor, poor service from the beginning. Read the reviews - head the warnings! The room(s) were sickening. Everything was filthy. The kids did NOT want to stay! Every bed had a dirty bedspread - we covered our pillows with sweaters and slept in our clothes - The curtain rods were held together with scotch tape, the curtains themselves were home to the pincher bugs, the corners of the walls had cob webs and spiders. The window casing which one of the beds was right up against, had rodent fecies in it. The envelopes asking for cleaning tips was absurd! They were even filthy with fingerprints and smudged something or other on them. The inside of the shower curtain was pick with mold! (WE COULDN'T EVEN SHOWER!!!) Refused to eat there - Looked in the window after dark and the kitchen matched the bedrooms - disgusting - Not only would I NOT recommend this hotel to ANYONE, but I am telling people to stay away!

The place needs serious help and updating. It sits on a beautiful site that is in need of a lot of TLC.

I really am not sure what to stay about this place. When I made the reservation, I was told it was not fancy. I was told there was no air conditioning and that the windows propped open with sticks. Fine. It sounded exactly like what I was looking for. Well....not exactly. For what we paid, I think they could have done better. We didn't stay in the main house but in the small house below. For starters, how about sticks to prop the windows open with?? We had to be creative and prop the windows with anything we could fine. Very annoying. The little refrigerator made so much noise, we had to unplug it to sleep. The lamps were either missing light bulbs or they didn't work. There was a large, opened container of garbage from the last family that sat on the porch for a full day before it was taken away. All in all, I was disappointed and do not plan to stay here again. I did however like the location. The area was pretty and quiet. It was a bit of a walk into town, but we didn't find it a bad walk. Eating breakfast at Payne's was fun. Well, not really breakfast. Coffee and homemade donuts, but still fun. The Oar was also enjoyable. $2 drafts, watching the boats pull in and out and the sun setting--very nice.

We were put in the "cottage" adjacent to the main house. There was a clogged sink, the bed had dirty sheets, and the front porch was cluttered. The shared bathroom was dirty as well. The breakfast was not included, and we found it unappetizing and expensive. The location was also not ideal--a fairly lengthy walk from town. The entire place had a gritty feel to it, and it was not a cheap place. Block Island was enjoyable, but I would highly recommend staying somewhere else.

Warning: Do not go here if you are fussy. This hotel wants two things from you: 1-Relax and 2-Enjoy a bottle of wine with your loved one on the porch. After all what more do you want on an island getaway? We loved the casualness of it all. Hope you are lucky enough to experience it for yourself soon.
