We stayed one night and were able to book a great room for a great price. Location is great, walking distance to Ballards, ferry, Spring house, all the great restaurants and shops. Gabrielle was super friendly and accommodating. We were even able to check into our room a little early. We will definitely stay here again!

Great Inn right off the ferry. In the heart of downtown. Great porches and balconies overlooking downtown and the harbor. One beach is right around the corner. Rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. Great value for your money. I would highly recommend and gladly stay again and again.

My husband and I intended to visit BI for the day and ended up spending the overnight at the Inn at Old Harbor. We had a beautiful view of the dock/marina from our room, and seeing as how I did not have an overnight bag, I was pleasantly surprised that the room had a full size hair dryer as well...

Planned a last minute treatment and was very happy with our stay. Close to the ferry, big room with comfortable bed, wine and cheese hour. Marissa, the Inn keeper, was wonderful. Very accommodating, got us situated in our room earlier then we expected. Would def stay here again!

We had a great time at this location and found the innkeeper and staff to be extremely nice and accommodating. We didn't realize that the Inn also supplies beach chairs and towels which made our beach trips much more enjoyable. I'd call this place "no frills" even if it is a little pricey. The breakfast has all the standard appointments...

My husband and I just spent 2 days at the Inn at Old Harbor to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Block Island is beautiful.

I was charmed by this Inn overlooking the Ferry dock at Block Island. Staff, Marisa, was wonderful. I had my best night ever on Block Island. I highly recommend it. It is centrally located and I had my very own porch!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. In season, a light continental breakfast is served in our guest lounge, followed by wine and cheese from 5-6pm (in season). 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. ... more   less
