    The Inn was delightful in every way. The breakfasts were amazing, the afternoon "nibbles" were wonderful, the people remarkably friendly and helpful. Loved the place. Easy to get to from the ferry landing, and very convenient location.

    1661 Inn and all affiliated properties are great choices when staying on Block Island. Their inclusive breakfasts and wine and cheese hour are also a treat. Rooms are always clean and charming. I've been taking my family for years.

    The 1661 Inn was great! We stayed in the Edward room and it was clean and spacious but the best part was the private wrap around balcony that overlooked the ocean. Breakfast every morning had a great selection and the property is within walking distance...More

    We stayed in Dewey House which worked out well. Nicely located although without AC a little uncomfortable at times sleeping. The 1661 breakfast and happy hour were fabulous. Everyone from the front desk to the kitchen staff/servers were very accommodating. We were able to leave...More

    I think you will find parking fairly easy as there are not a lot of cars on the island. The main building is about 100 yards up the hill. The walk is really beautiful.
