The Surfside Motel is convenient located near one of the more popular areas in Oak Bluffs. It was perfect for my teen, he was able to find other teens to hang out with in a clean and safe environment. We were busy, so basically we only used the room to rest. Overall the place was fine, I would stay there... More

We stayed at MV Surfside for two nights in August because we were on the island for a wedding. After reading a lot of reviews, and checking our budget, we decided on Surfside. Pros: Central location makes it easy and fun to walk to everything in Oak Bluffs. This hotel is steps to Nancy's, the carousel, and some other great... More

Very dirty, bugs in room, odor that was musty. The wall had holes. The only reason I stayed here was because they have a parking lot. I stayed last year, spoke to the manager/owner and told him my concerns, but he really didn't seemed to care. He didn't even apologize. I would think with all the renovations they have done,...

A block and a half from the ferry pier, this motel puts you in the middle of the action of Oak Bluffs. Rooms are fair sized and quiet, beds are comfy, small fridge but no microwave, but not much closet space. The staff is helpful, answers questions, and offers suggestions of what to do and where to go. No elevator... More

We decided to travel with our small dog for the first time and were happy to see several options on Martha's Vineyard. The Surfside had reasonable prices and based on the photos online, looked nice enough. I decided to phone to make the reservation, and the person I spoke with was incredibly friendly. We were given a room on the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend, it was a great hotel for a great spring getaway. My boyfriend loves the island and this is his go to place. The suite we stayed in was perfect, I kept saying how much storage we had! Everything was clean and I loved how close it was to everything, the bars, beach... More

Just got back from an April 5 day stay. You can't beat the price. This is easily my 5th or 6th time at the motel & as always, the location was ideal and safe. This motel may be "basic accommodations", but the rooms are clean, well sized and the staff are the super friendly (their pets are adorable as well).... More

The Surfside Motel in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard has ocean views and is within walking distance of everything Oak Bluffs has to offer. Bob is normally at the front desk who is very friendly and accommodating. We chose a room on the 3rd floor that had the best view. All the rooms are pet friendly, so we brought our... More

Stayed here for an overnight this week for the first time. The place is clean, comfortable and cozy. Newer HVAC units worked perfectly, Bed was comfortable, Bathroom was fine except that the toilet was not fastened to the floor securely. Small refrigerator was also in great working order. Large off street parking lot for vehicles was in the rear, yet... More

Considering the location, this place is a relative bargain. The hostess at the desk was very friendly and helpful and the room more than satisfactory. Water pressure was good, the room big enough for 2 and it was clean. The little courtyard is nice with extra chairs to sit out on. There is ample parking if you bring your car... More
