Very quaint on the outside, but the inside is a different story. This place definitely needs upgrades. The shower door was even broken. They did supply a fan...woohoo! This place is compatible to a Hotel 6

So I saw the reviews that people say that this inn is all about the island. I may have missed that point... There are 3 floors and 3 bathrooms. Meaning you have to share toilet with 3-4 other rooms (!). Breakfast is continents Like+. Not your favorite b&b type. The staff is unfriendly at best. Maybe it's a cultural thing,...

I just needed to run away from home and have a solid 24 hours to myself -- no car, cell phone, computer, iPad, Kindle, books or anything. I didn't want a television in my room or an Internet connection (although wi-fi was available). I had a small but comfortable and room with lots of 19th-century character and a great view...

We stayed in an upstairs room for one night. It was pleasant, centrally located and had a beautiful ocean view. The room was quite small, with a separate bathroom, and the only thing available for breakfast was a cup of coffee. However, there were a nice shelf of books, water to drink, and a small common fridge and microwave. I...

I should start by saying if you're searching for places to stay on Block Island, you already know it's a fairly expensive location in general. That being said, I would put the Gothic in towards the upper middle in terms of cost. The room I stayed in was so-so. It had a musty smell, likely due to the lack of...

There was no air circulation in this room. the bathroom was not clean and there was no soap. the furnishings were cheap, with a "garage sale" decor and there were holes in the wall. interior and exterior maintenance were marginal. if you like to sleep in a sauna, this is the place for you. the only good thing about the...

This is not “rustic” or “charming” or whatever word you want to use to say what it really is - in need of maintenance. I realize that the Gothic Inn is a budget accommodation on a very expensive island, and that you get what you pay for, but I expected a little better than what we got. First the pros...

For those rating the Gothic Inn with only two or three stars, I don't think you quite understand the charm and uniqueness of Block Island. If you're looking to stay at some hotel who turns down your bed each night, and provides you with a free chocolate on your pillow - you should be vacationing elsewhere. The Gothic Inn is...

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at the gothic this weekend, not our first visit. I must say its doesn't include the amenities has the Hilton but you will be satisfied. The Jamaican staff are very welcoming and all have great personalities. Great location, clean surroundings. The building is old but it's worth the money you paid...

So, I was told it was a little "rustic". The location is great-walking distance to the waterfront shops & restaurants, close proximity to the beach. It could be a better place if it were updated. The owners, who come by, are a sweet, older couple, who run the drug store in town. We had to share a bathroom, which was...
