Planning Potential Trip to Block Island

I am planning a trip to Block Island for 3 days/2 nights, any recommendations on great places to stay that aren't really expensive? What about things to do?

I appreciate all the help!

The Gables and Narragansett are probably the two best priced decent places on the island. The Gables is right in the heart of Old Harbor, which makes it more expensive than the Narragansett, which is over in New Harbor.

Those aren't bad suggestions as many places, at least in the high season, are a bit pricey.

For things to do, if you like hiking, biking, or mopeds , this is the spot. Plenty of trails. Also some wonderful beaches, some crowded, some not. Boating and fishing are also right there. For some ideas where to start go to www.blockisland.com, or blockislandchamber.com .

Most all the inns, and even the ferry, will have free guides available, which will show you trails, places to rent bikes, mopeds, etc., but these websites wil have plenty also.

We try to get to Block Island in the fall, better prices and much less noise and crowds. We usually stay at the National for it's charm and convenience. This year we're going a bit earlier than our usual October. Want to make sure the restaurant at the National is still open. We enjoy the laid back style of the island and mostly walk or take a cab to where we want to hike.
