The apparition of a woman in a 19th-century black dress has been seen entering Room 302, and downstairs, the desk clerks have reported a feeling of being grabbed around the waist from behind, as if someone were trying to push them out of the way.

    1. This is absolutely ridiculous. I work and live on Block Island, and working in this hotel for years there has never been any instance of it being haunted. Whoever said the staff told them this is lying.

    2. This hotel is beautiful , right across from the ferry, beautiful beaches and it is definitely haunted! We immediately felt a ghostly presence as soon as we walked in. We stayed in room 311. While walking passed room 302 my ring finger on my left hand felt very warm. I touched my wedding ring and it was extremely hot. I had to run my hand under cold water to cool it down. Very weird. Also, when taking pic of room 302 my camera malfunction several times, it never has malfunctioned before or since. I did not notice any irregularities in the pic, but take a look and comment if you see anything. Don’t be afraid to stay here, the haunted feeling you will get is a good one. Very strange yet comfortable.
