Just a great experience-- perfectly located-- great people-- It isn't cheap-- especially during high season-- but worth it-- old world charm Perfect for a single person exploring Block Island for first time

When we travel to Block Island we want to have an authentic experience. Staying at the National provided us with that. The hotel just has that classic beachfront feel and there are ample opportunities to sit out on the porch and have a nice lunch or diner. Sure, the rooms are smaller, the way they would have been back in the era this structure was constructed. Sure, there is no elevator, but again, there has never been an elevator in this grand dame of Block Island Hotels.

Hotel close to ferry, restaurants and shops. Nice breakfast. Room very small.

Thanks for visiting the National. Being a Victorian property, none of the rooms are very large - we think of them as cozy! Air conditioning is still fairly rare on the island but it is something we are considering for the future.
