Oh my gosh, I can't even believe it's taken me this long to review the Dockside! We went last summer - July 2013 - after choosing this hotel based on Travel Advisor reviews. We absolutely loved it! The location is fantastic and within walking distance of everywhere you'll want to go. The "beach room" has everything you need for your... More

We enjoyed out stay at the Oak Bluffs Inn during a fall visit to Martha's Vineyard in October. The Inn is centrally located, right on the main street of Oak Bluff, the rooms are confortable and roomy, and the Continental Breafkast is a good start for a day of sightseeing.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights Oct 4 and 5 2013.. Everything was great. Location - no more than 100 yards from the ferry terminals to Hyanis and Quonset so lugging heavy luggage was no problem and no transport (transfer) costs. From the moment we arrived until the time we departed the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our... More

Having known John for a few years, it did not surprise me for one second how amazing The Dockside Inn has become. The staff and management are very accommodating, friendly, and attentive. The place is pristine and the location is unbeatable. We will definitely return as soon as we can! Thank you!!

By far the best hotel on the island. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Loomis the virtual concierge is very helpful. The hotels location to all the sites is perfect and the harbor views are amazing. The hotel is a small walk to all the night life in town.

Very clean and wonderful staff. I would recommend to stay whenever you visit the area. Our family has already talked about coming back for the spring and this will be our place to stay. Nice view of the island and a great location.

What a perfect space to park ourselves for a two-day visit to Martha's Vineyard. We did not have a car and never ventured out of the Oaks Bluffs area because the walking, dining and shopping were all easily-accessible and very satisfying. The Dockside Inn was charming and comfortable -- they had a nice outdoor hot tub and a wonderful snack... More

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with our toddler. Everything was above and beyond. Wonderful staff, great complimentary snack bar, beach equipment room loaded with towels, chairs, coolers, sand toys and the like. Bonus - our room's kitchenette had a huge bottle of Bacardi!! If we find ourselves back on the Vineyard, we'll be sure to stay at the... More

Having read the good reviews we were rather disappointed with this inn. The bathroom in our first room was sub standard: the basin was not correctly fixed onto its pedestal or to the wall which meant it moved whenever used and it leaked leaving the floor wet and dangerous. The toilet was not fixed to the floor so had moved... More

We checked this room immediately after this guest requested a room change. The toilet had an almost imperceptible ability to wobble, which we remedied in 60 seconds by tightening the hold down bolts. The bathroom sink seemed to be perfectly secure, and the bathroom was otherwise spotlessly clean, as they always are. This room has been rented almost every night... More

Rooms were nice and they provide a nice breakfast, the landscaping was nice and the cute baby skunk was fun to watch from the third floor balcony. Grill and bar on the water just across the street. Nice!
