If your looking for a clean, close to everything bed and breakfast, on BI, this is a great place. Very laid back, friendly atmosphere, private location, yet close to everything. No frills, on a personal level....

I think I lucked out- I got a room on the top floor overlooking the beautiful beach and ocean. My room was clean but small. Would have been ok for a small couple. It has a nice wrap around porch and the inn takers are very pleasant and bring you whatever you need. I don't think I would have been...

All of these other reviews are rediculous, the Gothic Inn is great. I met the owners who are a lovely, nice, elderly couple who have children and grandchildren, and great staff. The breakfast muffins were delicious, and were plentiful. I don't understand how it could be so filled every summer if it's bad. I have stayed at the Gothic for...

Booking was easy and the person I spoke to was friendly. I didn't think much of it when she said there usually not there, then we got there and stayed 2 nights it didnt take long to understand why the owners arent usually there. Live and learn as they say and if you do stay there bring your ear plugs,...

The poor reviews are quite deserved here. We stayed in on of the apartments and were horrified! We cleaned the room ourselves before unpacking. This was back in the summer of 2006, though I doubt things have changed. The location, however, is quite nice. You can walk to the harbor, restaurants etc.. The owners/innkeepers were horrible! They should be ashamed...

I don't know where to begin with this place. We were so horrified about everything at this place that at times we just laughed to keep from crying! We got there during a terrible rain storm and couldn't find any staff. Finally we find two young women in a lower room of the main inn, watching TV surrounded by packages...

I'm just adding my 2 cents worth because I object to some of the opinions that people complaining about the Gothic Inn just don't "get" Block Island. We love Block Island and this will be our 4th year going there. We accept that the old buildings there cannot provide all the modern conveniences and that indeed is part of the...

My husband, 4 year old son and I stayed at the Gothic Inn during the summer of 2006. We were looking for a nice getaway to splurge on for a few days. From the website, the inn looked charming. When we arrived, we had the same experience as another traveler that posted here. No staff member was around and a...

We loved our time on BI and the Gothic Inn was great. It's not a five star hotel, but it has plenty of charm and was very comforatable. Our room was small but clean; the linens and towels were fine; we had no problems at all with the shared bathrooms which were clean (bring your own soap and shampoo). Breakfast...
