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

This hotel is very clean and the owners and staff are wonderful. We had a car ,which we were able to park on their property, but we never had to use it around this part of Martha's Vineyard. This hotel is situated perfectly near restaurants, attractions and steps to the beach! We went a little later in the season so... More

My stay at the M.V Surfside Motel was decent. It was decently clean, the location was great and it was dog friendly. There was a few fruit flies in my room which wasn't the greatest feeling but other than that I had a pleasant stay. The motel is also super dog friendly which is AWESOME.

We enjoy staying here every time we visit MV (though the last visit was seven years ago - boooo!). It's still a great find. We seem to always be in room 304 - top floor queen room with a view of the ocean (see photo). The only cons about the room are: it can get stuffy, so you need to... More
