Reviewed 19 September 2017

The Spring House Hotel has a lot of strong positives. The location is wonderful - 5-8 minute walk to town but you feel very removed from it up on the hill. The lawn is spectacular - you can lounge on the chairs, gaze out at the ocean, and revel in the view. The restaurant is very good - nothing stands out in particular, but everything is good. The drinks are pretty good too. The hotel has nooks and crannies that you can explore and hide from the lunch and dinner crowds - quiet spaces in bars, back porches, etc. We stayed in the main hotel and our room was clean and although not updated we so enjoyed the ocean breeze coming through our windows at night. A nice treat that there was a farmer's market on Thursday afternoon. We would definitely come back, probably next time with our kids. Stayed during the week in August without a wedding.

This is a lovely, old fashioned hotel on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the ocean. Our room was in the Mott House, just adjacent to the main hotel. We did not book an ocean view, but the view outside was quite nice from the second floor ( no elevator .) The room was small, but clean, comfortable, air conditioned, and well furnished. Bathroom was well appointed. We had a fantastic dinner on the back porch. We also enjoyed drinks on the front lawn. Perfect! Rooms are fairly expensive on Block Island, and this is not the place to stay if you you are looking for modern or trendy. We stayed on a Sunday evening,-- I 'm not sure I would want to stay here if there was wedding taking place on property. I would stay here again!

Stayed: July 2017

Beautiful room with an ocean view. Wonderful service by Claudia and Dave. Adolpho cooked a delicious breakfast in the morning. Loved the wine and cheese hour every evening. Very relaxing......just what we needed!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view.

The view is the only nice thing about this hotel - it was overall a really terrible experience to stay at this hotel from start to finish. It was a nightmare to even properly book the room. There is nothing nice to say about this hotel except the beautiful view from the property. The staff is useless, couldn't be less helpful, the accommodations are terrible. They are one of the few hotels on the island and know that they can charge what they want without having to do much work for it. The beds and pillows are horrible. Our rooms smelled like mold. And don't stay above the Barn... you can hear everything from the restaurant below even though they assure you, you can't. Take your money elsewhere!

We visited for early evening cocktails and tapas on the lawn. The view of the sound is awesome and the food was great. This is a must visit location to enjoy the old charm of the island and imagine what it must have been like 100 years ago. It's a short walk up the hill from the center of town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Spring House Hotel, built in 1852, is Block Island's largest and oldest hotel. Set atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean as well as the spring from which we take our name, the property provides views which cannot be beat. Being a ten minute walk from Old Harbor, the Spring House provides an oasis which can be enjoyed from our Adirondack chairs, wrap-around porch, and East overlook patio. Great pride is taken in our seed-to-table mission in both of our two on-site restaurants. Three gardens and a greenhouse provide fresh produce creating delicious dining options on both our Dining Room and Bistro menus. Simply choose your preference of formal or casual food and setting upon arrival. Indoor and outdoor seating is available for both. Between the Main Building and the Mott House (an Annex Building located 20 yards away), there are 50 hotel rooms to rent, ranging from 1-bed standards up to studios and suites. Two apartments and four houses are also available to rent on property, as well as off-property Town Homes. Block Island thrives during the summer, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. During this time, all of the above-listed dining and hotel options are available. Outside of this time frame, the Dining Room menu is closed. The Bistro menu remains open along with the Main Building Hotel from April through October. The Spring House Hotel provides a beautiful setting for weddings and special events which are frequently hosted on the weekends. In the effort to provide our nuptial couples the exclusive setting, our food and beverage outlets may be closed during these events. During the off-season (November-April), the Main Building Hotel is closed and only our Barn Suites and Houses are available for rent. Last winter was the grand opening of The Barn Restaurant, providing an intimate dining experience Wednesdays-Sundays for dinner only. The restaurant, fitting only 30-35 patrons, features an open-concept kitchen and a truly unique experience. ... more   less
