We've stayed here two years in a row with our lab. The rooms are clean and staff friendly. You cannot beat the location in downtown Oak Bluffs and walking distance to the beach and ferry. We can't wait till next year!

Stayed for Memorial Day weekend getaway. Was looking for something conveniently located and Surfside fit that perfectly. Although it took me a phone call to find it. My GPS had it located one street from where it is. Once there check in was a breeze. If you have a vehicle the parking is sparse. That was ok I was on... More

I have always enjoyed my stay at Surfside until our last visit. My wife and I stayed one night over Memorial Day weekend. After a busy Sunday, enjoying the island, my wife and I checked into the room. The first thing we noticed were a pair of men's dirty underwear on the floor next to the bed. We called the... More

Off season stay - great value, location, able to bring my little dog, friendly personal and had everything I needed - wifi and coffee/tea all day to top the place off! Great stay - would come back for sure!

My husband and I have been returning to the Surfside for fifteen years, each time we visit the Vineyard, and we love this motel. It's clean and well-maintained, the rooms are nice, the beds are comfortable; it's just a nice place to stay. And it's in a great location - right near the water in Oak Bluffs. The owners are...

My boyfriend and I stayed for a weekend and enjoyed our time. We went once the low season started. The price was reasonable compared to what they want during the summer. September is still a great time to visit MV. The location of the motel is perfect. The Island Queen, Steamship Authority and other ferries are all with in walking... More

We had a great stay over this past July 4th. MV Surfside far surpasses “motel” expectations. It is clear that the owner & staff take great pride in their property – everyone was constantly in motion whether helping guests or fixing something. There is also a lovely garden / courtyard. This is the friendliest & best maintained motel! We love... More

This was my wife's and my first visit to Martha's Vineyard, and we are very pleased with our choice stay at the Surfside Motel in Oak Bluffs. No doubt there are other great experiences to be had as well staying at other places in other towns there; but we identified most with the 'vibe' of Oak Bluffs among all the... More

My husband and I just returned from a stay at the Surfside. Although the location is great, and the people are wonderful, the room itself was less than great. We were on the first floor, which was convenient, but the carpet in our room was so dirty, it literally turned my feet black from walking on it, fresh out of... More

basic lodging. nice room size and decor. very clean. nice outdoor large seating area in back and plenty of parking in their own lot. Really, you get off the ferry, walk across the street and you'r there. You can walk to everything from this location. 3rd fl rooms have ocean view out of the front windows and you can sit... More
