General Block Island Hotel Reservations

If you prefer not to stay at The National, most hotels on the Island can be booked through blockislandreservations.com. Some additional hotels that aren't listed on BlockIslandReservations.com are The Spring House (which is beautiful, but also up a very steep hill that you might not won't want to walk), The Block Island Beach House, and Ballards (which is where we'll be meeting up on Friday - but might be a little rambunctious for some folks). Please know that some of the hotels on the Island have shared baths & no AC.

If you're coming from far away, the easiest route may be flying into Bradley Internality Airport (CT). The Block Island Express (out of New London, CT) is about an hour from the airport via Lyft, and there are 5-6 ferry options a day. JetBlue offers direct flights to from LA to BDL during the summer.

You won't need your car on the Island, but if you're planning on bringing one, you'll have to make reservations on the CT or RI ferries sometime in April. We're not sure if Lyft or Uber operates on the Island, but there are lots of taxi services if you need one. Most arrangements can be made in advance, but they also usually hang out by the ferry terminals.
