Room was terribly overpriced, a bit shabby, bed uncomfortable, no services (no one in office overnight, no coffee in room). I was there in a blizzard (the only one in the motel), no one in the office. The lights were ready to go out for the night and to find a phone number to call I would have had to... More

I would never recommend this place! We booked a room for three nights in the middle of July, a room on the first floor which was listed as wheelchair accessible. When we were about to turn in for the night (it was well after midnight), we heard loud noise coming from the room next door which I later learned was... More

Stayed 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. 2nd time, could not be more pleased. Plan to go again next year!! It is centrally located, shops, restaurants, Island Queen dock and swimming. It is pet friendly but it was quiet and clean!!

Location is great. Parking lot in OB is clutch. They have upgraded the courtyard so good comfy seats with garden and bubbling fountains makes it nice to be outside. Like most vineyard structures ....it suffers from constant moist air - slight musty smell from carpet and other moisture issues. Staff is friendly and helpful.

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
