I am 100% coming back to stay here. Staff went above and beyond to make our stay great. The breakfast was better than any hotel breakfast I have ever experienced. A special thanks to Alecx for making everything fly smoothly.

A wonderful place. The staff, especially Alexc, are great. The room was spectacular. Breakfast was outstanding. A real value. Fantastic ocean views from the rooms. Don't miss the sunrise. Worth an early wakeup. We will definitely go again. Block Island is sensational!!!!!!

I heard about RI Hotel week so, what a great way to celebrate my husbands birthday. We arrived early hoping to check in, not only could we but Alecx had everything all ready and walked us to our room. What a surprise our room was amazing! The room had a full living room with a beautiful fire place and a bathroom with a huge tub for 2 with a tv and a shower you could have a party in. We didn’t want to leave the room, but Alecx gave us a print out of what was open and much to our surprise we enjoyed the winter just a much as in the summer. The 1661 is the nicest friendlyist place I have ever encountered! We can’t wait to go back!

My husband and I made a last minute decision to take the 6pm ferry to block island last weekend and stay at the 1661 house. We are still reminiscing about the weekend and looking to book another stay soon. We have been to the 1661 house for it’s famous brunch many times over the summer but this was our first overnight stay and winter visit. I strongly recommend it! The views and sunrise are breathtaking! The staff was amazing, Rita and Alex paid close attention to detail and really made us feel welcomed. We enjoyed a nice conversation with Alex while indulging in the complimentary wine and cheese. The entire experience was a TEN and I SO recommend a visit summer or winter... or both!

The staff were amazing. We arrived late in the dead of winter, but they were there waiting for us. Lovely room with a misty magical view. And the heat was turned up for us, so it was super cozy when we arrived. Breakfast the next morning was delightful and delicious. Our chef even took the time to drive us down the road when we needed . a lift. So grateful for their kindness and hospitality. I regret that we had but a short time to stay, but we will definitely be back!
