The Kelly House has a lovely lobby area, but our room was just a typical hotel room. Breakfast was a blueberry muffin. It's in a great location in Edgartown with all shops and restaurants within walking distance. We were only there for one night, so it did the trick for us, but don't think I'd go back.

Stayed here for New Year's Eve as we could not get into Harbor View where we were going for New Year's Eve celebration. This is a sister property. This could be a really nice place if it had an upgrade and it was kept cleaner. The rugs in the halls need to be vacuumed. Rugs had stains on them. There... More

Hi Pam43, Please accept my apologies for the obvious service failures during your recent stay with us. This is not typical of Kelley House and I was extremely disappointed reading your review. The Hotel is undergoing renovations and the concerns you mentioned are being aggressively addressed by our engineering department. We are updating many areas of the Hotel, including carpets....

The hotel originally impressed me with cookies. The rooms were really nice and the guys at the front desk were very friendly and always made me feel at home. The best part was the restaurant called The News From America that served nice food like burgers and steak as well as common breakfast food. It was casual and seemed like... More

This is our third or fourth time staying at Kelley House (we switch between this spot and the Harbor View, its sister property). We love that so many Edgartown spots are within walking distance. On this last trip, we had dinner every night at the Newes from America pub. Kelley House has some lovely traditions, such as complimentary coffee &... More

This hotel is great! It has a very good location, right in the middle of EVERYTHING! The room was nice, although the double beds were small. They give you really good cookies and milk at night by their nice and warm fire. They even have board games and fun stuff for the kids. Great location, good hotel!I recommend

We have stayed on the Vineyard twice with our children. This was our first time off-season and we will definitely be back. This hotel is the perfect spot for discovering the island. The staff were warm and welcoming. They have a beautiful fireplace in the lobby with a checker board and armchairs. Our sons spent many happy moments playing checkers... More

Kelley House is right off the main part of Edgartown, within walking distance to the harbor and all the shops and restaurants. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the staff is very accommodating. They put out coffee and muffins in the lobby lounge in the morning, and cookies and milk in the evening--both, very welcome and yummy treats! The... More

We stayed three nights in Edgartown, and the Kelley House is in a perfect position for walking the town. There are numerous coffee shops, galleries and restaurants nearby, and the hotel itself is clean and comfortable. Rooms are spacious, and the muffins and cookies are excellent!

We only had the opportunity to stay here one night, however, the hotel is utterly charming, in a great location right near the water, many restaurants and shops. The room was quite large, which was a surprise in a Historic Hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!
