This place will not disappoint, wonderful drinks and fresh flavorful meals with a fantastic view of the harbor. The waiter was attentive to all of our needs and very courteous. Will definitely return here. Love this place.

Well, the rooms may be a little small, and the main stairway may be a little slanted, and maybe you don't have an ironing board, and maybe it's not the luxury of a Marriott property. BUT - the location CANNOT be beat, the A/C is really strong, the showers had great pressure, the staff was fabulous...a greeting whenever they say... More

This hotel is a great location if you're visiting the island. Our ferry from Rhode Island let off right across the street and from there a lot of restaurants and shops were on the same street. There were also several moped/bike/jeep rentals in that area too and it's a few minutes to walk over to a great beach location. The... More

Lovely hotel and incredible staff! Especially Bryan and Sally in hospitality and the manager at the front desk. We stayed in rooms 232 and 234 during our stay, and are convinced that room 234 is haunted. The rooms are small, but clean and the location is top notch.

Stopped in for breakfast. It was fine. Decent service and fair price. Convenient to the ferry. Just had a couple of eggs so not much to judge the food. I think there are lots of cuter places on block island to eat. One good thing is that they have a luggage room to stow your stuff.

Block Island's tourist season lasts for less than half the year. And most visitors come on the weekends. So high prices and two-night minimums are about the only way for island hotels to remain viable businesses. At Harborside, there are certain things that can't be helped because of the age of the building. But there is so much the management... More

We have stayed at the Harborside for the past few years. We were there e week of June 21st 2016. Rooms are just fine especially on a budget. THE RESTAURANT! The past 3 years we ate at the restaurant. Terrific prices, service, friendliness of the staff. The hostess greeted us every time she saw us entering the restaurant or hotel.... More

I can't judge based on other hotel values on the island but in comparison to all other hotels I have ever stayed in I was really disappointed. For $250 a night plus tax you have absolutely no view and our room was TINY! Upon arrival you can not miss the crooked staircase and a suicide ladder leading up to the... More

I've stayed at the Harborside Inn twice during two different vacations to Block Island. In my opinion, it's the best place to stay if you're on a budget. It's always the least expensive option out of the similar hotels/inn's right at Old Harbor (The National, Surf, etc). I'm already planning to book Harborside for 4 different trips to Block next...

We have been going to block island for about five years and have been staying at the harborside inn. We absolutely love it there and we have always made our reservations through block island reservations. The staff is incredibly accommodating and they go the extra mile to ensure our stay is nothing less than perfect.
