Always a nice stop for us. Staff is helpful - launch operators are very professional. It would be helpful if there was a designated area for a longer dinghy tie-up just in case we came back after the launch stopped operation. We will be back -

Very professional staff. The Dockmaster was working quickly in a busy environment .. she made sure all the boats were treated with respect. I don't do dockspace often, but this place would be high on my list for another Newport visit.

My stay was better than I thought it would be. Could not get power at my location and needed to run the engine several times to charge batteries. Dock hands could be better trained - they are dealing with expensive boats. Rest rooms & showers were much better maintained than what I remember in the past.

As of December 2020, we had the honor of becoming the new owners of Champlin's Marina & Resort. We are excited about the opportunity to revitalize and re-approach how we welcome and host you at this one-of-a-kind destination. Our new management team comes to Block Island with decades of hospitality experience, ensuring our guests and superior customer service are always top of mind. We invite you to join us again this summer to experience and explore the multitude of changes, upgrades, and renovations since the previous ownership. From 5-star service to fully-renovated guest rooms, new marina slip configurations, Pier 76 Dock Bar, Galley House Restaurant, and more, your ultimate vacation getaway awaits!

This is a great place as long as you don't mind rafting. The staff is very experienced and respectful of the needs of the boaters at their facility. We had a race from Newport to Block Island - we had about 7 boats arrive mid-afternoon on Saturday and Paines had us tied up within an hour.
