The Best Kept Secret on Water Street! Inn at Old Harbor is a charming and beautiful Victorian building Located on a hill overlooking the harbor at the head of downtown. Our 8 guest suites are decorated with period antiques, vintage iron beds, and they are filled with light and airy summer breezes. All but one have private en suite baths, and many feature private waterfront balconies. We have a wrap-around deck full of rocking chairs to observe the bustling downtown area or to relax and watch the boats glide by on the harbor.

Best location on the island for convenience and amenities. Kai, Gaby and Dustin run the hotel, and are as accommodative as any! Kai has an Island shop down stairs featuring his reinvention and improvement of the sandal the “Kai-Kai” handmade. Historic Inn - they treat you as family. The Inn at Old Harbor is a must to stay and visit! Thank you the Inn at Old Harbor!

Me and my boyfriend last minute decided to go to BI and we found the hotel and didn’t think twice. Great price, location and had all we needed. Nice staff, easy check in and good experience overall. Right next to ferry exit!

We highly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Old Harbor! We were initially going to be staying over Memorial Day, but due to current events, our stay had to be postponed. Gabrielle was so accommodating and easy to work with! We rescheduled to the next holiday weekend, which was Labor Day. What a great time to be on Block Island! There is so much to do, and the weather was perfect. Our hotel room was in the ideal location, close to everything in Old Harbor. Tons of restaurants and shops. I thought it might be loud since we're in a "busy" part of town, but it was quite the opposite. It was the perfect place to crash as we were in and out all day. The balcony was a great touch! Definitely need that balcony! :) We met the family that is on site running the Inn, and they were really great people. Highly recommend! Great hotel, great staff, great views, great everything. Love love love. Stefanie & Craig

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Old Harbor and enjoyed its charm, friendliness, views and location. The room was spacious and had its own balcony. The staff was helpful with advice on things to do and places to dine. If you are looking for a great place to stay on Block Island, I recommend this Inn.

We recently stayed at The Inn at Old Harbor for our annual visit to the island as our regular location did not open due to several issues. The inn is right behind the parking lot of the ferry and super convenient. Check in was in the store beneath the inn where we were greeted by Dustin. He was amazing, accommodating and helpful. Once he checked us in he gave a quick tour of the common areas and showed us to our room. We had room 3 with a king bed, private bath and private balcony. Large room with plenty of space to move around. Only thing I would have liked was a night stand on both sides of bed. Bed was soft and comfortable. Bathroom is small with a shower stall but very adequate. Due to pandemic there is no coffee service but we normally bring our coffee maker as I am an early riser and like to read with a cup of coffee on the balcony so again not an issue. There is a common room where you can leave luggage before and after check out if not leaving island right away. Also there is small fridge available for guest use. We kept our creamer and some snacks in it so it worked out great. There is also a common area balcony at back of house for watching the boats/ferries and the sunrise. The front wrap around porch has rockers and is amazing for people watching on the main road. There is no private parking at the inn. There is street parking but you may need to move car as its only a two hour limit during the day. We can't wait to go back next year making his our new go to inn.
