A nice location with a good view and typically east coast decor. The room was a reasonable size and the information folder was useful. The outside seating is a nice touch. The only thing missing is tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

We just had a brief Halloween getaway and enjoyed every minute. The staff was unfailingly nice, bed was comfy, room was clean. The "in town" location was perfect for us as we mainly went to Oak Bluffs to go out "clubbing" on Halloween. 50 yards to the restaurant, 100 yards to the bar.

You'll not find a more convenient location central to all that is happening in Oak Bluffs with an incredible view of the harbor! Our room was spotless, smelled nice & was well appointed. Customer service of Lianne and Maggie are very friendly & helpful. This place is all about comfort and convenience with a shot of "Cool".

From the moment I called to make a reservation at the Dockside, the friendly customer service was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay there in August and wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect and an easy walk to the ferry, restaurants , beach and shopping. Our room was large, bright, had comfortable beds,... More

My husband and I and two other couples booked a last minute trip to Martha's Vineyard for Columbus Day weekend at the Dockside Inn. Everything about the place exceeded our expectations. The staff (Maggie) was awesome as well as the weekend crew. They provide a nice continental breakfast, fresh baked cookies for snacks and give a listing of things to... More

We love the Dockside Inn. My husband, son (age 7) and I have stayed there several times. My son loves the hot tub and the solarium. The solarium is stocked with yogurt, granola bars, chips, fruit and ice cream. The muffins and coffee in the morning are delicious. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The location is perfect and... More

My boyfriend and I are staying here for two days from October 13-15 for a fall retreat. We called to inquire about a room last minute as we were not sure of where to stay and the owner John was very friendly and accommodated us right away. When we pulled off the ferry and arrived at the Inn we were... More

There is only ONE place to stay in MV and that is the Dockside Inn. There are so many awesome things about staying here.... The hotel is in the perfect location. Beautiful views, centrally located to everything, including the beach. It's the "home away from home" kind of place. The amenities provided were thoughtfully added. Coolers, chairs, beach towels?

My fiancé and I stayed overnight at the Dockside Inn when on the Vineyard for a friend's wedding. Let me tell you - it was FANTASTIC! We arrived early and they were so gracious, helpful and even let us check in hours before we were supposed to be able to. The staff was available, courteous and very helpful with transportation,...
