As far as a place to dock your boat while staying in Block, its a safe choice and has all the services you would need. Not a luxury spot, but as a boater its fine. good spot to party with friends. The pool is plain but ok, not a party type atmosphere at the pool. The bar there is a...

This is my first stay here and found the staff outstanding! Especially Randy at the front desk, as well as the owner and manager of the resort. Tropical Storm Hermine was coming and the Block Island Ferries were being cancelled for a couple of days. I was reluctant to inquire with the office in what they could do for me,...

Gray place with a lot of action. Live music, snack bar and bar. If you are looking for quiet, this is not the place. Good dockage for boats, not sure about hotel rooms. Restaurant was closed due to lack of staff. Pool is basic. Fun 2 star location.

Stayed for 2 nights. Obviously it's Block Island and staying in August would be pricey. We spent ~$300 night for an island view room. The room seemed fairly clean but in such desperate need of a renovation. Had a musty odor until we turned on the a/c. Pros: play area and pool for the kids with a restaurant/bar for the...

Nice size room, with our own porch overlooking the Marina. King size bed was very comfortable, with oversized pillows and nice linen. Strange that the bathroom sink is located in the bedroom (not the bathroom), but that was really the only complaint we had on this wonderful weekend!

I stayed here with my wife, we stayed in the rooms above the hill. The rooms were clean, spacious and we had a beautiful view. We sat on the deck every morning with our coffee and breakfast to get the most out of the views. I usually do not go on and write reviews but I experienced an act of...

My family and I just got back from Champlins and I am surprised by some of the reviews, we had an amazing time. We stayed in the hotel and must say the rooms were spacious and comfortable. We also found them to be clean. The staff from the front desk, to management were friendly and accommodating. We didn't know but...

Note: we did not stay in the motel but rather stayed on our boat tied up at the dock. If you know what you're getting into at Champlin's Marina you can go and have a great time. Yes, they jam boats in like sardines and you have to be very proactive and protective of your boat and gear to ensure...

if you think you can go stay at this marina and use your boat for excursions around the island you can forget it. They pack you in like sardines boat on top of boat, boats tethered together. If you don't mind people walking across your boat and being tied to strangers then you won't mind it. The facilities are very...

Everyone who goes to Champlins has a good time. It is hard not to. Previously the downer were the bathrooms. Well, they did a major upgrade and the new bathrooms and showers are much much better. The only nitpick is that on the back of the shower stall doors, they have two hooks instead of just one. Definitely will go...
