This was the second hotel on our trip. My wife and i are easy going travelers so this hotel was just about perfect. Not many frills, but a very clean spacious room. We stayed in room 6, which was on the top floor and a corner room overlooking the harbor. Not an outdated hotel, but nice wainscoting and white walls....

We stayed at the Water Street Inn over Labor Day weekend and were pleased with the accomodations. We had a large room in the front, facing the ocean. It was clean & everything was in working order. I'm not sure what the other reviewers were thinking, Its on an island and I didn't come here to talk on a phone...

We stayed at the Waterstreet Inn for the weekend on August 21st & 22nd. Great location, right across the street from the ferry. Walking distance to almost everything. We had friends staying on a boat in the marina and we were able to walk everywhere and not be far from each other. The "almost" Hurrican Bill was looming and made...

My husband, parents and brother stayed at the Water Street Suites and would not recommend to anyone. My brother bought his girl friend a hand made necklace and earring set, one that was hand made by a jeweler on the island and it was a one of a kind piece. The next day my family and I were heading to...

I am writing in response to the review written by the family who claims that the housekeepers are thieves at the Water Street Suites. On the morning after this party arrived, they came to the front desk regarding the missing necklace and earings. At that point we promptly called the police in order to file a report. We spoke to...

I spent last weekend, the weekend before Memorial Day weekend, on Block Island at the Water Street Inn. We stayed in room 1, a corner room on the second floor. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and ferry. No A/C but that was not a problem because it was pretty chilly out at night. The location was absolutely...

Mu husband and I just spent two nights at the Water Street Inn which included meals at the restaurant downstairs and bike rental. It was a great room, very clean and comfortable. It was clear there have been recent renovations so earlier reviews should be put in perspective. If you can manage to go in off-season and take advantage, it...

We stayed at Water Street Inn, rooms were very nice and roomy. Full bathrooms with tubs - unusual for seaside rooms we have stayed in. Very clean...nicely decorated...excellent linens...great housekeeping. Would not hesitate to stay there again or refer someone else there. We fully enjoyed our stay. The only negatives...we were on the third floor - be ready to lug...

Knowing there was no check in desk, I was a bit nervous when I booked the room. Then we put the key in the door and opened it. The room was immaculate, bed linens looked new, 8 bath towels and 4 hand towels, a true ocean view as promised, much larger than other rooms we have stayed in at Block...

“Wood floors, so try to get top floor, if you don't mind stairs. AC in back rooms, trade-off for no view, but who sits in the room looking out the window, GO OUTSIDE!”
