We called ahead and spoke with Terry, a front desk clerk who was so great to help us plan our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and manage our expectations for our visit. She stayed on the phone with us and helped us understand the ferry and the general culture of the island. Her advice proved very helpful. The hotel was... More

This is an old hotel but is well maintained. There are no elevators, so you have to lug your suitcases upstairs. However, it's in a great location in the heart of town with a good view of the harbor. Many chairs outside under a covered porch to have your morning coffee and watch the boats.

Quaint, clean, and super comfortable bed! No phones in the room, so when we needed more pillows we had to go get them. Other than that a very good option for our weekend getaway. Near to everything as well .

The Wesley was so convenient and centrally located in Oak Bluffs. It is only about a 5 minute walk from the ferry dock and just across the street from some great restaurants and cute little shops. The rooms themselves were pretty basic but comfortable enough. We were in a room just across from the elevator so unfortunately it was pretty... More

I haven't stayed at this hotel but we do use the shower & bathroom facilities they offer boaters, since the Wesley is located across the street from the Oak Bluffs harbor. For a small fee ($6), you can buy a shower token which gets you a 10-minute shower and a bathroom token to use to get into the private/locked bathroom... More

The staff gets 5 stars, but they are limited by the fairly standard arrangements. Nothing special about the rooms, a lone tv in a bare bones self serve bar and coffee area. Actually, I was ok with the trappings personally, but my family didn't think we got much for our $$.

We arranged to have our guests stay at the Wesley Hotel for our recent wedding, and are so glad we did. The hotel staff were incredibly welcoming, helpful and conscientious; they checked in with us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed, and they were very courteous and professional. The hotel is also beautiful, with a welcoming lobby... More

The Wesley Hotel has a vintage vibe, wonderful location abutting the harbor, and the most lovely porch lined with old fashioned rockers just perfect for people watching! The location is convenient to the ferry, island transit, restaurants and fishing pier. We make sure to visit a few weekends each summer.

A group of 4 women we rented two double rooms, both with a beautiful view. The rooms were the right size, the staff was AWESOME and our stay great. Lovely porch, close to everything and in front of the water. We loved it. Very European feel to it, not overly luxurious but just right. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Walking into the Wesley was like stepping back in time. This only added to the historical charm of the hotel. The room was small but clean. The location was perfect. We were in walking distance from the ferry and local sights. The staff was pleasant. There is no restaurant at the hotel but it is in walking distance to all... More
