Best Block Island Hotels with Pool

If you’re visiting Block Island and looking for accommodation with an indoor or outdoor pool, you might find yourself out of luck as there are very limited options that offer a pool on Block Island.

But if you’re flexible and open to suggestions, some other accommodations on the block island and nearby areas offer a pool as an amenity. We’ll go through all Best Block Island Hotels with pools and nearby alternatives.

Block Island Beach House

📍 Where to find them?

The Surf: 32 Dodge St, New Shoreham, RI and The Gables: 54 Dodge St, New Shoreham, RI

Block Island Hotels with Pool

Block Island Beach House has a pool for guests. The hotel location gives easy access to the downtown area and Crescent Beach. This downtown hotel is a twin property named The Surf and The Gables, located within 3 minutes of walking distance from each other.

If you want a hotel room where you can wake up to a gorgeous view of the ocean and Crescent Beach, The Surf is the right location. However, The Gables isn’t far away if you can’t get a room.

The hotel/s are pet friendly for Dogs. Talk to the manager or person in charge if your pet accompanies you, as there are only select rooms where you can keep your best friend. Also, check for any pet rules they might have.

Pool access is given regardless of the two properties you stay in. Irrespective of where you stay, you can walk a few steps to shops, restaurants, bars, and the ferry terminal.

The only gripe you’ll probably have here will be the small rooms and thin walls. However, you’ll rarely feel inconvenienced and won’t have to complain about any noise.

It is also worth noting that you’ll see much more traffic and road noise in the downtown area if you stay at The Surf. It is nothing significant and won’t affect your stay whatsoever. The Gable will be perfect if you prefer quiet and private and don’t mind a few minutes walk.

You’ll find everything within 5-6 minutes of walking distance from the ferry terminal.

The Neptune House

📍 Where to find them? 64 Connecticut Ave, New Shoreham, RI

As the name says, The Neptune House isn’t exactly a hotel but a privately owned resort. The Neptune house is put out on rent during select times of the year, making it a timeshare. So the chances of you getting a vacant room here are difficult.

Though if you time it right or keep in contact with the owner, you might get lucky.

During the peak seasons, usually between June to September, the owners themselves use the resort, so your chances of getting a room are very slim. The odds of you getting a reservation increase in the fall or spring.

However, I recommend you call up the owner and check with them. If you’re lucky and get a room between April and November, you can use the pool as it is open during that period.

The rooms here are spacious with good decor and vibes, and the kitchen is fully packed for those wanting to cook a delicious meal.

All kinds of travelers, whether solo or with friends or families, can have a great time here. Play tennis on one of the courts, pool in the game room, or relax in the heated pool; there’s something for everyone.

For night outs, there are many bars and clubs within a 1-mile distance, the closest being Club Soda.

Champlin’s Marina & Resort

📍 Where to find them? 80 West Side Rd, New Shoreham, RI

If you fancy something special, like a view that leaves you in awe while chilling in a pool, Champlin’s Resort is the place for you. It is the best Block Island hotel sporting a pool with a grand sight of the Great Salt Pond.

The resort takes pride in its 42 newly renovated rooms, decked with a Maritime theme and located just a few steps from Champlin’s deep-water marina, accommodating over 140 slips (Boat/Yacht storage). Thus, this resort is suited to all types of travellers including solo, family or friends.

The hotel is home to numerous restaurants and bars, featuring a poolside bar, an ice-cream parlor, and a candy store right on the spot! Many of these spots offer dock-side seating with scenic water views.

If you want to go to the beach and have a calm, laid-back day, you’ll have to hail a cab for a 5-6 minute drive or walk around 30 minutes to get to the nearest beach, ferry terminal or downtown area.

You can bring your car if you plan to visit the downtown or beach frequently. There are cabs and Champlin’s complimentary shuttle services to pick up and drop off guests, but those don’t run at regular intervals.

One of the best block island bars, Mahogany Shoals can be found only 10 minutes walking distance away and while en-route, you will find a few really good restaurants to eat at.

Villakula Cottage

📍 Where to find them? 0829, Off Beacon Hill, New Shoreham, RI

Villa Kula is neither a hotel nor a resort. It is a luxury house available on rent. For a hotel or resort, it is relatively small, with just 6 bedrooms and 5 baths that can accommodate 14-15 people at best; hence only suitable for families or a group of 10-15 people.

The location of this cottage is one of the highest on Block Island, with its pool staring directly at the Atlantic. You’ll have a fantastic vantage point, giving you a great view of the ocean while swimming.

There’s plenty to do here. The second great room features lots of amenities, including an entertainment area, full-sized wet bar, full-size pool table, pingpong table, shuffleboard, arcade games, and a large 55″ flat screen for movies, TV shows, and more, meaning you and your group will find loads of activities to enjoy.

The nearest club or bar is almost 2 miles away, and the nearest beach Charlestown Beach, is 10 minutes drive, so either bring your car or take taxi to commute.

Avonlea, Jewel Of The Sea

📍 Where to find them? 597 Corn Neck Road, New Shoreham, Block Island, RI

Avonlea is one of the best beachfront hotels on the Block Island. If you want a hotel with a pool but find yourself in a situation where no hotels with a pool are vacant, Avonlea is the place to be.

With the best view on the island, you have the beautiful ocean right in front of you with warm sandy beaches. You can take a swim or spend a sunny afternoon relaxing on the beach.

The hotel is a few minutes walk and drive away from everything in town. Be it restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping destinations, or the ferry terminal.

If you want to indulge in recreational activities, there are board games, puzzles, fishing, and more. Avonlea also provides you with continental breakfast and happy hour snacks to energize you for all the fun.

Although they do not claim to be pet friendly, if you wish to bring your pet, you can request permission. There might be additional charges, but it will all be worth it, given the prime location of this hotel.

The nearest bar is the Poor People’s Club, 3 min walk, while the nearest restaurant and one of our favorite places, Beachead, is only 2 minutes away.
