The room (suite) was pretty dank. Carpet felt gross underfoot and the room wasn't cleaned that well. Sheets/towels were clean, but the bed needs to be replaced (had a few springs sticking up into the ribs all night!). Location is great for being central to old harbor, but it is noisy at night (drunks rambling down the road). Also felt... More

First let me say if you haven't been to Block Island you might be disappointed in the Gothic. Even though it is clean, staff very friendly, breakfast good, view of water from porch, and in town location, this inn is from yesteryear and I just love it. It is what Block Island use to be. They do have shared baths... More

This little place on Block Island is relaxing the second you walk on site. It took a bit of time for us to find anyone to check us in, but when someone showed up it was all good! The room is simple but extremely clean. Yes, you share a bathroom but it was never a problem and we stayed for... More

My husband and I made a reservation at Gothic because we love block island and after calling several hotels the only hotel availabe was this. Anyway, if they want to be in this kind of business, they have to renew the entire house and improve the service. The house smell, the carpet is old and not in good condition, the... More

We spent the last few days (6/30-7/3/2014) at the Gothic Inn. Since we had been guests previously, we thought the choice was a no-brainer. This was our first visit since Mr. Bentley became the innkeeper, and our experience exceeded our expectations. The Inn is a beautiful old home set within the historic district, providing guests with charm and hospitality. The... More

This place is very reasonable and affordable for a block island inn. The inn is over a 100 yrs I was told, however it's very comfortable and quite. Don't come expecting a high quality accommodation but the staff and their service makes up for it. Continental breakfast on the porch overlooking the ocean was unbelievable there is a huge lawn...

We stayed shortly after Columbus Day, 2013. The place is old and worn which is not a surprise for an old place in an island in the Atlantic Ocean. On the plus side, the price is good for Block Island, don't go looking at BI on the cheap and expect a top shelf place but it fit us fine. It... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Gothic Inn for two nights and found the accommodations to be a great fit for us. We loved the view, enjoyed the rustic vibe and delighted in the continental breakfast. This place has a ton of character, an ideal location and cozy bedrooms. The staff was lovely and helpful, even responding to an... More

I loved the location of the Gothic Inn. You can walk to most everything around the downtown area. Breakfast served in the morning and the staff was friendly and welcoming. THere are rooms in the Inn and in the building next door. Yes there was a little noise from the nearby bars but it wasnt enough to keep me up... More

The room had a terrible odor and was dirty. The only thing good was the location. Do not stay here! There are so many nice places on Block Island to stay for the same price. Next time I will either stay at The Spring House or the Payne Inn.
