We recently spent a long weekend at the Kelly House, after having a great experience there last year. We were warmly greeted at the front desk and allowed to check in early, as it was still the off season. Our room was clean and cozy. It was very cool when we were there, so it was nice to come back... More

This hotel is a great location , but is very shabby and really needs a good makeover. The staff were friendly and had placed wine and nibbles in our room as a birthday gift. This was a lovely thought they also put us in a suite . It's all just a big tired . The maid service was none existent,... More

Recently spent two nights at the quaint Kelley House. The location was perfect within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and views of the harbor and scenic homes. The desk staff was pleasant and the room was comfortable though the bathroom needed updating (wallpaper was stained and baseboards needed touch up painting). The muffins and coffee in the morning as well... More

We stay at the Kelley house every year. Typically we will take our bikes over on the ferry and simply ride from the ferry to the Kelley house. On a nice day it is a beautiful and scenic easy flat ride. The Kelley house itself is one of the oldest hotels on the island with a great pub off of... More

We found this hotel to be charming! The room was a good size and were clean, the coffee making facilities were good, and everything we needed was in the room. The beds were comfortable. We arrived early but were able to check in early as the room was ready, which was very convenient. The cookies and milk were lovely to... More

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
