I will be returning here for brunch during my next visit to block island. The brunch is well worth the money and includes juices, champaign, and coffee. The view from the patio is beautiful. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Dogs are welcome. After finishing breakfast you are welcomed to relax out on their grass area overlooking that water. They... More

A little on the pricey side, but well worth it. We stayed in the Guest House in the Sands room It had a double bed & a shared bathroom. We never ran into a problem with sharing the bathroom. We had a shared ocean view deck. The view was stunning. Our room had a decanter of Brandy & hard candies... More

we loved the 1661 Inn, stayed one night at the Inn, then were transferred to Dodge House, which was a disaster, can not see how the two properties are connected, bed hard, windows could not open. I must say that the breakfast at the Inn was spectacular The staff was extremely helpful, especially the young lady who welcomed us there.... More

We stayed in the Barker Room this past weekend. This was our first time at the Inn, as we normally stay at the National Hotel. We cannot say enough good things about this Inn. The entire staff was the most friendly and hospitable we have encountered. The room was perfect and very comfortable. Bathroom was amazing! Breakfast and the afternoon... More

Reserved on month in advance and had a very nice room for $500 a night that was very clean. Staff, Elizabeth and owner Rita were always present to respond to our question. Don't miss tasting the offerings from Rita's garden. The full breakfast and 4:00 tastings offered opportunity to mix with people that came to BI for over 30 years.... More

We stayed at the 1661 Inn for our annual anniversary trip to Block Island. The Inn is clean and the grounds are beautiful - offering many spectacular views of the water. The staff is polite and give excellent service. The complimentary breakfast which comes with the cost of the room is exceptional with everything from fruit and pastries to smoke... More

The beds were okay but the service and food where awesome. The Inn is a throw back to the early days of Block Island charm. We loved just sitting on the back porch eating and watching the boats go in and out of the Old Harbor. We also had one day we saw a pod a whales breaching.

very nice staff and accommodating - the room at the Dodge Inn was old and no A/C not too bad but be ready to sweat if the air temperature does not change. You had to ask a lot of questions to really get what you needed - for example - Ice buckets in the room but no ice machine at... More

I booked a special 2-night get-away for my husbands birthday and wanted to spend a bit more than we normally do, so we booked the Edwards suite in the main Inn. It was so convenient to be right off the main lobby upstairs, and since the suite has a long interior hallway, we heard no sounds from the lobby. The... More
