The Madison Inn was perfect for an extra long weekend on MV. It is literally in the middle of everything OB, but quiet enough that no sleep was lost due to noise. Walking distance to the ferry, beach, carousel, Nancy's, Circuit St, back door donuts, etc, etc, etc! My husband and I stayed in room 16 (the only one in... More

The room was fabulous! Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Owner welcomes you and treats you like family. The homemade cookies were to die for. Beach towels, chairs, umbrella and ice chest are offered to make your day at the beach stress free! Cute patio to drink your coffee in the morning and enjoy fresh fruit and homemade... More

We stayed at the Madison Inn for two lovely nights. The proprietor was helpful in so many ways. The homemade baked goods, beverages, ice, refrigeration, beach chairs and towels were all lovely extras. Our room was comfortable, very clean and the AC worked wonderfully. We had a great time and hope to return next summer. The inn is located close... More

I stayed in room #2 with my 6 year old daughter! Staff was welcoming and friendly! We took passenger ferry so location was important since we would not have a car. We were 1 block over from all the action on Circuit Ave and nearby to famous restaurants spots like Nancys in the harbor area. But the best part is... More

We stay here every year for illumination night. The hotel is convenient to everything, always clean and inviting. The staff is exceptionally helpful and accommodating to requests to store items before and even after check out. I look forward to returning next August!

It is always a pleasure to stay at the Madison Inn. Marilyn is wonderful and very accommodating. Rooms are cozy, clean, and nicely decorated. Outdoor sitting areas are nice and there is 24 hour coffee/tea, water, and snacks. The inn provides towels and beach gear and is in the center of town. Walk from the ferry (no car needed) to...

.....to always be clean, have a very friendly staff, and provide a quiet nights sleep. The rooms are of simple design and a bit close quarters, but very functional and efficient. Nice breakfast/tea bar with some breads, fresh fruits and granola bars for a quick breakfast if you'd like. Close to everything in Oak Bluffs. Highly recommend.

This is our favorite place to stay on the Vineyard. This was our second stay and there will be more. Perfect location, close to the ferries, in the midst of Oak Bluffs. Staff is excellent--we arrived early and Mary had our room ready within an hour of our arrival--and at least 2 hours before regular check-in, which we really appreciated... More

The Madison Inn is in the perfect location, in Oaks Bluff! We took the Steamship Authority ferry over and it was just a short walk to the Inn. You are surrounded by shops and restaurants. If you have young children/teens traveling with you, there are two Arcades close by and a movie theater. The Inn has all of your beach... More

The Madison Inn is in a great location in Oak Bluffs, a short walk from the Island Queen ferry terminal. This was good for us, as it was a cold, windy, rainy day when we arrived. When we first got there, the door was locked, and we assumed that no one was there. We called the Inn, and it turns... More
