Last weekend my boyfriend and I stayed at the Payne's Inn for two nights. We attended a wedding on the Island. We had the best experience ever. Carmen, her husband & staff were amazing. They are all hospitable, down to earth, helpfull & kind. The Inn was in a perfect location, quite and peaceful, with amazing views. The breakfast was delicious and included in your stay. I know you all love your animals, but for us that are allergic, it's a pet free environment. My boyfriend is in a wheelchair, he is a parapaligic , the Payne inn was the ONLY location on the island that truly had all the accomadations that fit his needed. (room 1)......We will be back

I am so glad I found Payne's Inn! I met Carmon and Ally they were so helpful and a pleasure to talk to. I stayed in Room #2 with views of the ocean and bay, the room was very big and had everything I needed. The breakfast area had stunning views as well. I have stayed at the Rose Farm Inn, Spring House and Champlins and Payne's Inn was my favorite. I only wish I had more time there.

My wife and I have been going to Block Island the past 22 years for our anniversary in early June. We've stayed at Payne's for over half of those years and have never had an unpleasant experience. The location, accommodations and staff are terrific. The Inn is roughly halfway between Old Harbor and New Harbor which is ideal for walkers like ourselves. We'll undoubtedly be back next year; Payne's hasn't seen the last of us!!

Room Tip: Rooms 2 thru 5 have balconies facing New Harbor; rooms 3 &4 are our top picks.

My husband and I stayed here overnight, and while the weather was rainy and cool, our room was warm and inviting. Beautifully clean, large, and with all the amenities we could ask for, including fresh coffee. Kevin even recommended a few places to eat or have a drink, and the place we chose didn’t disappoint. It was about a 20 minute walk to the Inn from the ferry, and I recommend walking if you can because the scenery is gorgeous too. We will definitely stay here again next tine we’re on the Island!
