Situated by the sea in the heart of the historic district, the Gothic Inn combines the convenience of location with the warm hospitality of a family run country inn. Here you can absorb the spectacular view of surf and beach, watch commercial and pleasure boats enter and leave Old Harbor, and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere for which Block Island is so famous.

Located right near the beach with views of the ocean from the lovely wrap around deck on the second level this is a very charming inn on Block Island. Rates are reasonable and there are private rooms on 3 floors with period furnishings. Rooms are cleaned daily if you ask, otherwise your privacy is respected. Very quiet with a wonderful continential breakfast that you can eat on the porch, in your room or with other guests in the livingroom. We have been going for 10 years and have never experienced anything but friendly innkeepers and staff. They are ready with a fresh beach towel and or bath towels at all times. I would recommend this place at anyone coming to Block Island who is looking for quiet privacy and an at home feeling.

The location is wonderful. The price reasonable. BUT...They don't do housekeeping for 2 nites or less. No one is there to greet you. A list of rooms posted on the door with your name attached to one. Go find it for yourself. Shared Bathroom was a mess by the end of the weekend. Bring your own Shampoo and Soap they don't provide it. Keep your towel, you won't be getting a new one. Not sure if my sheets were all that clean...They don't tell you any of these important items when you make your reservations.
