Trip Report Block Island RI - Hotels/Inns - My experience at the Ballard Inn.

Spent 9/14 - 9/16 on the wonderful Block Island. First stop was our hotel/inn, The Ballard Inn. It bills its self as renovated w/a private beach. Something should have told me there would be a problem when after we checked in, we had to go through a part of the kitchen to get to the stairs to get to the rooms. The carpet on the stairs was filthy and smelled a bit mildewy. The rooms were worse. The tub in my room clearly hadn't been cleaned in quite some time, neither had the toliet, which was still filled w/waste when I got there. The backsplash tile had what looked to be blood on it and the fridge was filled with decaying food. The upgraded "ocean view" which was accessed by a shared terrace (which was also filled with cigarette butts and empty bottles) was actually just a view of the parking lot, in fact all of the parking lots and car rental businesses. The final nails in the coffin were the bad smell, the fact that the rooms did not have phones and the non-working lights. After bringing the manager up he proceeded to tell us that he felt the room was clean!

After less than a 30 minutes we were out an moved onto stay at the National Inn, which was lovely. A bit more expensive, but worth every penny. I would stay there again, and have since recommended twice.
