We love the old world charm of the Wesley. Right on the harbor, walking distance to the downtown. The staff was helpful & the rooms were of adequate size, Bathrooms clean, and a bit small. We loved to sit on the wide front porch and watch the boats in the harbor. No dining room, but close to restaurants & bars... More

A bit more like a hostel than a hotel, the harbor view, especially from the glorious long front porch, overcame the hotel's many shortcomings. The rooms are sparsely furnished. The shower (no bathtub) was very small, no room to bend over. A small sink with little room for toiletries. Clothes are hung from a wall-mounted rack. Plenty of street noise... More

This hotel was chosen for it's proximity to downtown OB, we wanted to walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping and other attractions. I wanted to spend my money on enjoying the Island, spent very little time in the room. However; It was dated, the rooms and bathrooms were somewhat small and there were few amenities (3rd flr.-no elevator)or even a... More

My stay at the Wesley Hotel was less than exciting or worth the price of the room. The room was small and the bathroom was even smaller. The room was not particularly clean...just adequate. The carpeting definitely needed shampooing. The hotel staff was not particularly friendly. While engaging in a conversation with the staff, I was offered a job as... More

Had a great stay at the Wesley Hotel. We only slept there for the most part we didn't hang out in our room. Yeah the TV was a old CRT but who cares I was on vacation on a island with a lot of bars with HD TV's around if I wanted to watch a game. My only complaint is... More

After the Victorian facade, lobby and location it is all downhill relative to this hotel. We have stayed in hotels all over the US and Europe and have never gotten as little value for our money as we did at the Wesley. Our room was the most expensive (a suite). The room decor was spartan. No wallpaper or even a... More

Recently stayed at the Wesley (checked out yesterday as a matter of fact). I can't wait to get back there! Wonderful Victorian charm - exactly what we expected. The rooms are small but, for us, added to the charm. The hotel is almost 200 years old so I can understand not having an elevator - wouldn't want to upset the... More

So we have been coming to the Vineyard for years, always curious as to what the Wesley looked like inside, considering the beautiful Victorian feel that the outside of the building has, along with every other building on the island. But to our dissappointment, The only positive quality about the Wesley Hotel IS the outside. The fact that the ocean... More

The staff at the Wesley Hotel regrets that these guests did not like their stay at the hotel. From the moment they walked in everybody at the Front Desk tried their best to accommodate them. They made their reservation for four nights through third party website, and were aware of the cancellation policy. Our staff helped them with their luggage,... More

The rooms at the Wesley are small, have not been remodeled in many years, and have the smallest showers I been in in some time. Still, I enjoyed staying there. What sealed the deal for me was the wonderful porch, those comfortable rocking chairs overlooking the harbor, and it's proximity to most things you might want to do while in... More

I can't say enough good things about The Wesley. Yes it's an old Victorian Style Inn in the heart of Oak Bluffs right on the Harbor. Yes the rooms are smaller than what you would find in standard hotels. Yes the only elevator is located in the second building. All that being said this is still my favorite place to... More
