Chela, our housekeeper at the Dodge Cottage, was especially friendly and efficient with our Sophronia Ray housekeeping. It was nice to see her smiling each of the 4 days of our stay. When we returned from the breakfast, we found the rooms immaculate by 8:30.

My husband and I came to the Hotel Manisses/1661 on Block Island to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. We hit pure gold when we landed in the Chelsea room at the Manisses; jacuzzi; king size bed; shapes of gentle animals grazing in the distance out of our window. Breakfast, included in the price, was a delicious buffet every morning. My...

My husband and I have been to Block Island many times over the years but this is the first time we have stayed in the Dodge Cottage. It is located very close to the ferry dock in the center of the town and therefore it is easy to walk off the boat and drop your bags in your room. This...

For 26 years we have come back to BI to enjoy the 1661 Inn & Hotel Manisses! If you like rustic New England living, quiet streets, great food and beach locations, put this B&B on your bucket list. The moment you settle down for the one hour trip on the ferry, relaxation takes over. Strolling through the shops, eating at...

My wife and I spent 4 days in the Dode Cottage- Alice May room. It was a nice experience, but different. The room had a very classic, old feel to it. But I believe that's pretty much what every room on the island is like. There are no big name hotels, there are tons of bnb's. The room could use...

This was our first time visiting BI. Great hotel and beautiful Island. The room was very comfortable, and the champagne breakfast exceed expectations. The location of the hotel was an easy walk from the ferry, and pretty centrally located - although not on the main drag! We will be back!

This was our third stay at 1661, each time a different room, and each time equally satisfied. The rooms are spotless, breakfast buffet is over the top, and happy hour is a wonderful touch. I would much rather stay at a comfy bed/breakfast than a hotel/motel, and this always meets our expectations so we have never tried any others on...

My husband and I booked a last minute, 2 night, getaway at The 1661 Inn and it was an excellent choice. The staff was wonderfully hospitable, attentive, and genuinely friendly, and it was obvious that they were very happy working at this establishment. Our room was very clean and spacious and the full ocean view was breathtaking. The champagne breakfast...
