A quaint inn with beautiful views! Inn keepers and staff were wonderful and very informative! There is an inviting porch And lawn with Adirondack chairs ! Tapas and drinks at sunset is spectacular! The restaurant 1879 was fabulous! Highly recommend this inn and can't wait to stay again!

We have been going to Block Island for years and this being our first stay at the Atlantic Inn.... and our last. Out of 78 reviews, almost half are average and below for a reason. To sum it up, the front desk staff (the gentleman and younger woman) make you feel that guests are an inconvenience. We thought it was... More

We are here for the 4th of July and we could not be more pleased with The Atlantic Inn. We are newbies to BI and really did not know the best place to stay. As I saw mixed reviews on here I have to say I was a little hesitant but we decided to go with it and are so... More

26 years ago my wife and I were engaged on Block Island. Dinner at the Atlantic Inn was part of our day then, and we had dinner there again recently. The staff was friendly, the meal was terrific, and the desert was out of this world (I had the brûlée). Among the different options for places to eat on the... More

This inn is decorated in a Victorian style. There is no AC, but this wasn't too bad when the windows were open and you had the fans on. The bed was comfortable, but VERY squeaky. I think this one was from the Victorian era too. Every move we made was loud, and this meant that we had little sleep with... More

My wife and I just stayed at The Atlantic Inn this past weekend. Everything was great with one big exception. The owners of this establishment MUST get rid of the water saver/ low flow/ restrictor shower heads they have installed in the guest rooms. That Seinfeld episode from 1996 was for real. These things are bad news. First, they don't... More

Atlantic Inn (and their restaurant 1879) is one of the best locations for upscale dining on BI. The food is excellent (and very imaginative), the location is stunning with views overlooking the ocean when you arrive and the service is excellent. The wait staff is young, but very friendly and eager...best to be patient (especially early in the season). They... More

The Atlantic Inn is perfectly perched up high on the hill to have great views of the ocean either from your room or just from the Adirondack chairs on the front lawn or on the covered porch. It has an antique charm (which isn't personally my style). The breakfast was excellent and ample. The rooms were comfortable, keeping in mind... More

We had an amazing experience this past weekend at my daughter's wedding at the Atlantic. Brad and the entire staff went above and beyond to create a spectacular wedding this past weekend. No detail went unattended. The ceremony was beautifully arranged on the hill overlooking the ocean. The cocktail hour began with servers holding trays of champagne and elegant appetizers... More

Positives: -Cute, clean room with a private bathroom and a very big closet. -Hotel was clean, adorable, and well taken care of (except the lawn and gardens) -Great view of the island -Great location... it is slightly out of town so feels more private. I liked staying very close to the Spring House which has a more active bar and... More
