I probably would not take the time to review, except for one individual. The hotel was immaculate, perfect, and more than you could ask for. I assumed that everyone should know this!? I stayed at the hotel for a wedding in the main event space overlooking the lighthouse. The food was out of this world: Lobster rolls, THE BEST OYSTERS... More

I visited this hotel for a work event in September of 2014. While it is in an excellent location and does have some nice qualities, I recommend that you find somewhere else to stay. The reason I say this is that the hotel is musty and dirty. The common areas (lobby) are very nice but when you head to the... More

My parents stayed at this hotel, not me. However, I called the hotel to arrange a few special surprises for my parents while they were there celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary and they could not have been nicer. Darlene, the concierge, helped me arranged a surprise picnic lunch while they were on a tour of the island. She brought her... More

And such comfortable and clean rooms! Wonderful staff, and attention to details. Absolutely charming. Large porch with stunning views, get a bottle of bubbles and a book, and bask in "l'arte di fare NIENTE!" - loaf, laugh, enjoy!

The wonderful young people who work here are very pleasant and really do a great job. Rooms in the newly renovated section are very good. Pretty cool here and boiler not cut on until 10/1. Buffet breakfast is very good.

My husband and I were married here 17 years ago and it was paradise on earth. At that time the service was provided by the Irish who came over to work in the hotel every year. Their charm and attention to detail was stellar. The property is still the best location on the Island, but the management needs to work... More

We stayed on the third floor, in the main building,overlooking the pool. Our room was quiet and well appointed, although everything was a bit worn (acceptable). The bathroom was small and only had a plastic lined shower/tub, not especially appealing, but nothing wrong. It's an old hotel, and I find Martha's Vineyard at its best when it's unpretentious and understated.... More

My review is not about the rooms because I did not stay here. I was touring the island by bike and needed to get out of the sun. I came upon this hotel and went inside to cool off. Well, much to my surprise, they had cold water available and allowed us to fill bottles, use the restrooms and sit... More

The location is great but we for the money, it's not a great experience. We stayed in the building to the right of the pool. The building smelled of mildew and so did our room. Shower didn't work. Wouldn't go back
