Honestly surprised by the almost 5 stars this place has.. If I could rate breakfast alone it would be 5 stars and would end it at that. After reading others reviews I feel we may have been stuffed into one of the lesser rooms.. It was anything but 'spacious' as others mention. It was super tiny and cramped.. We were...

The Old Town Inn was a lovely stay for the entire family in Block Island. Our rooms were spacious and very comfortable with great bath and shower. We had beautiful views of lush Block Island foliage. There were convenient bike racks for us to lock up our bikes. A great outdoor shower was enjoyed by all after a long, relaxing...

The rooms and the whole inn, feature lots of natural light. We were in room 6 which had huge windows on two walls. We looked onto a field with cows in it. The beds were very comfortable, the room spacious. It was clear Dave and Lucinda did the renovations with an eye towards excellence. The sink is conveniently outside the...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast was delicious, and prepared fresh daily. The Inn is located in a great location between the main town and the marinas, so you are close to the action, but still far enough away that you get the 'quaint" feel. Lucinda is a wonderful host and guide and can steer you in the right...

My family has stayed at Old Town Inn 5 years in a row because... Lucinda and Dave own/host a very clean, safe, nicely furnished, non-smoking Inn. They are very welcoming, very friendly, very knowledgable about the Island, their flowers are beautiful, the beds are very comfortable, breakfast included many choices and their yellow lab, Dolce, is a sweetheart!

I've never stayed at a B&B before. This was a first, but I've also never gone out of my way to review a hotel before. To say that Lucinda and Dave provide a lovely experience and getaway destination surely greatly understates my experience. Lucinda KNEW who I was before I even stepped foot in her inn. She made me feel...

The rooms are nice and the bed is comfortable. I liked the location of this B and B. It's only one mile from town! I would recommend to stay here.The owner is very helpful and the back porch is very peaceful as it overlooks their spacious property. The breakfast was good too.

There isn't enough good to say about Lucinda, Dave, Dulce, and the Inn. With delicious breakfast, clean and cozy lodging, and connection to the many other businesses in the area, our stay here provided a home base off the main BI roads. Lucinda was always available to offer recommendations and chat extensively of the history of the island. The outdoor...

What a lovely little inn. The owners are so welcoming and accommodating. Waking to the smell of a delicious breakfast, original artwork on the walls; it is simple but beautiful. After many trips there I wouldn't go anywhere else.
