This was our first time staying at The Sea Breeze Inn and it won't our the last. The grounds, the location, and the staff all made it a most memorable experience. The Sea Breeze is a hidden gem. Bicycles and beach towels on site, breakfast delivered to your door. Beautiful views and breezes from the ocean. What more can you... More

I chose this place based on the surroundings and the location and it did not dissappoint. The breakfast was wonderful and the gardens and landscape were sublime. Getting woken up by the birds every morning and watching the sunrise over the water was a singular experience. Very unique experience with wonderful staff. Will come back.

The Sea Breeze is a quaint and beautiful inn that allows true relaxation to occur. For the past two years, we have stayed at The Sea Breeze and have had the best time. The secret is out, Block Island and The Sea Breeze can hold their own versus Hamptons, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. If you are looking to unwind, enjoy... More

We have been there in year's past. The bathrooms and kitchen area have been updated. Towel racks have been added to the rooms. The Adirondack chairs overlooking the salt pond in back is a great place for morning coffee. Downtown is a short walk, so you can take advantage of the restaurants and you do not get the noise from... More

There is nothing to not like about staying at The Sea Breeze Inn...starting with a yummy and artfullly prepared continental breakfast served basket-style and left outside your front door - croissants, muffin, juice, coffee, jam, butter, granola, yogurt - you get to choose. The innkeeper was so pleasant and welcoming. The bed was comfy and cozy, the ocean breeze wafting... More

We stayed in room 8, which was wonderful! We were there the second weekend in May (off season) and it was quiet. My ownly qualm was the pillows...not comfy. I did miss my wi-fi though (but we survived). The rooms were clean, the breakfast was DELICIOUS, the views were beautiful. We would definitely stay here again and are hoping to... More

Thank you so much for your nice review, and glad you enjoyed your stay in Room 8. The majority of our guests who choose our B+B look forward to a vacation being mostly "unplugged" and taking a break from screen time. To us, that is what makes Block Island special: a real get-away from life on the mainland. More

We have stayed here three times over the years and always thoroughly enjoy. The rooms are clean and bright, some with ocean views. The birds start singing at 5am and nest all around the property. Jennifer is a wonderful guide who can advise everything about the island. And the breakfast basket is just fantastic. Filled with goodies and beautiful ceramics.... More
