We loved Block Island, and the Inn has a spectacular view of the ocean. Very quaint. We were, however, disappointed about the level of customer service. When we checked into our ocean-view room, we noticed that the windows were dirty. I informed the front desk that first evening as well as the next morning and was assured the problem would... More

The Atlantic Inn did NOT disappoint...our waitress was fabulous...the meal was outstanding...from the seared sea scallops to the cedar plank halibut...to the matcha cheesecake...the meal was fabulous! I would highly recommend the Atlantic Inn for celebrating a special occasion!

The food offering was a choice between their taster's... More

We ferry over to Block Island a few times a summer and have tried a variety of dining experiences. Choices are more limited if you're looking for real dining vs. day-trippers seeking a booze cruise experience. The Atlantic Inn has emerged as the clear favorite. The hilltop location is lovely, with its harbor view, Adirondack chairs out front, and sunset... More

Our first trip to Block Island, to celebrate both of our birthdays (on a too short 4 night stay), and what an Amazing and Perfect time we had! The Atlantic Inn was a beautifully perfect location, sitting up on the hill, perfectly set away from the busier town street, but in totally great walking distance from Everything...and it has a...

We just got back from staying at Atlantic Inn for 3 nights on August 12, 2016. I found the staff friendly and the Inn Itself charming. The rooms are small but clean. The porch area you can sit and have your coffee. The price of the Inn was cheaper then other places I called. I did eat at the restaurant... More

This is a very well kept inn with lovely antiques throughout. The food was amazing. The free breakfast was smoke with fresh muffins still warm, lemon brioche, frittata, fruit and granola. Tapas and cocktails are served daily from the porch where you can view a gorgeous sunset over the harbor. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The Inn was... More

I can't understand the negative reviews for the Atlantic Inn. We just came back from a four day weekend staying at the Atlantic Inn. The place is very charming and typical of what you would expect in Block Island. The staff could not have been any nicer or accommodating. The views are beautiful. I was concerned about no air conditioning... More
