“The Value, location and view are almost outdone by the friendliness of the staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

A totally bias review here. Since 2001 the Kelley House has been my summer vacation spot. My family has gotten to know the staff as they've gotten to know us. I really don't know if I get special treatment. I watch interaction with all guests and the special treatment is given to all. In the past twelve years we've incorporated a few day trips and weekend stays on the vineyard. I will stay no where else.

We stayed here for one night, the accommodation was superb with lovely views over the harbour. Charlotte was great, really friendly provided a great welcome, and did everything to ensure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The adjoining pub/bar was also excellent, traditional with great food, excellent clam chowder friendly staff and a lovely open fire. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you all very much.

We booked this room last minute based on trip advisor recommendations. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The room was beautiful and had a lovely view of the water from the back deck. Great location close to local shops and historic sites. Would most certainly stay again!!

I have been staying on Martha's Vineyard during the summer with my family for over 20 years. We always rent out the same house in Edgartown and consider it to be our favorite vacation destination. This year we wanted to do something different for New Years Eve and so I decided why not try the Vineyard since we had never been there off season. After passing the Kelley house every year on the street, I figured we should give that a shot. And I am so glad that we did. First of all, the innkeepers are sensational! I have stayed at various lodging locations around the world, from hostels to 5 star hotels and everything in between and have never met sweeter hotel personnel. Make sure to interact with Charlotte, she is incredibly nice and makes the experience so enjoyable. To the facilities themselves, absolutely beautiful. To save a couple extra bucks, I suggest staying in the off-season. The lobby is beautiful and decorated for the holidays. The fire place is always going and you'll find milk and cookies every evening and coffee and muffins every morning. The room is incredibly spacious and wonderfully well kept. As for the rest of the experience, the Kelley house is a great place to stay in terms of location. Whether it is your first time to island or you know it like the back of your hand (like me), it is great either way. We went for New Years Eve and you a stone's throw from an amazing view of the harbor view fireworks. You are right downtown which makes things really nice for shopping, eating, etc. The greatest part of the location is that the Newes, one of my favorite restaurants on the island, is right downstairs, one door away. Great food, great atmosphere and a wonderful bar. If you want an incredible experience and know the island pretty well, give this a try for New Years Eve in particular- incredible getaway location!

We stayed one night because the sister property, the Harbor View hotel was only open during the weekend during the december period when we were at the Vineyard. Staff ranged from an extremely helpful front desk lady to an uninterested guy who smoked a cigaret in front of the entrance. No breakfast was available so we had to go to the only place that was open, the Main Street Diner (not a bad place for breakfast). Well that's the Vineyard in the winter, no problem, we love it any time of year.
The suite we booked (2nd floor in the Court House building was a bit outdated and worn and could do with an update.

My wife and I stayed at the property for three nights just before Christmas. All aspects of our trip were handled very professionally. Reservations were booked according to our desires and trip reminders were sent to ask for any further requests. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly front office staff. Charlotte was extremely gracious to us during our stay. Chelsea was very friendly as well. The evening refreshments (milk and freshly baked cookies) were a great hit. Every morning there was freshly brewed coffee and muffins. Our room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Overall, the Kelley House is a wonderful value!

Stayed two nights at the Kelly house in December. The staff is outstanding, especially Chelsea.
The rooms were really comfortable and everything is within walking distance. Even the linens kept in the room were all top notch. Highly recommend this Hotel.
