Block Island Springhouse Hotel

The Block Island hotel is a big part of what makes this small place so special. Most of the hotels on this New England resort island were built in the 1800's and retain their Victorian charm. You can smell the salt air in the wood of these lovingly restored antique structures. To help you decide on where you should stay, we've consolidated info for you here. You may click on any of the hotel photos below to get details or to make an inquiry for a stay. Before proceeding ask yourself a few key questions:

  • What is your budget? Take into account that some places offer a breakfast, mid-week specials, discounts or package deals.
  • How Will you Get Around? Proximity to town and beaches is another thing to consider.
  • How many in your Party? If it's just the two of you or the whole family? Some hotels are more family friendly than others.
  • What amenities do you require? Block Island accommodations tend to be rustic. It is not necessarily standard to have a private bath or t.v. in your room. Rooms are often small. Internet connections don't always work. Knowing before you go can save you disappointment and help you plan on how to get by without the usual creature comforts of home.
  • How long will you stay? How long will you stay? Most places require a minimum of two or three night stays during high season, especially on weekends. Mid-week or last minute stays are more flexible as inns and hotels try to fill in vacancies.

Stay at an historic Block Island hotel complete with period furnishings and restored architecture. Recalling the days of a more traditional era, your stay will be memorable. Block Island is rich with history, you will not find a high rise or commercial hotel in this New England paradise.

The island is seasonal, look for room rates that reflect this. Typically the season goes from Memorial Day to Labor Day - this is considered "high season" and with it are the highest room rates. Inns begin opening up as early as March and April where you can expect bargain rates. After Labor Day rates drop again. After Columbus Day most places close up for the season but you can still find some lodging, even in the winter.
