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

We had a wonderful 5 days at the Surfside. The 2 of us and our lab Brady. Everyone was super friendly. The staff is terrific. The room was very clean. The AC ran cool and quiet. The location was amazing. One block from Ocean Park, one block from the Ocean, one block from the Steamship. Right in the heart of... More

Spent a long weekend and the surf side and were lucky enough to be in town for the oak bluffs fireworks. We had room 315 which came with a queen bed, refrigerator and a nice view of the ocean/downtown from the three windows in front of the room. The place isn't perfect there is some street noise, the bed was... More

My wife and I spent a weekend on Martha's Vineyard and I had difficulty locating a suitable hotel. Although there are a number of B&B's on the island, we prefer hotels. Luckily I found room at Surfside MV and it turned out to be a great find. And it was just steps from where our ferry landed in Oak Bluffs.... More
