“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

My family and I enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it . The rooms and grounds are well kept and clean. Breakfast is wholesome and delicious (really enjoyed the homemade banana bread). The inn keeper is friendly and welcoming. It is more of a bed and breakfast than A resort, and I was told that there will soon be a name change. MVR is located only 15 minutes walking from the center of town and 3 minutes by care. The bus stop is directly across the street. In comparison to other hotels on the island, MVR is very reasonably priced. I've travelled to the vineyard every year for the last 26 and this is certainly one of the best locations on the island....check it out for yourself

Buyer beware! Do Not stay here!! Rooms are over-priced and underwhelming. The grounds are anything but a resort. The innkeeper is rude and never available. But that's probably because she's busy spying on her guests. Upon checkout she admitted to have been behind our room and looked into the window at night. She even monitored the amount of people that came in and out of the room. Very creepy!!! "Continental" breakfast was a pitcher of oj and stale muffins in windowless mildew basement. Save yourself the hassle and be able to actually enjoy your vacation!

the photos on their website are much nicer than the actual rooms. we had a nice time there but all in all there are a few issues. the rooms, especially the bathrooms are a bit dated. the grounds could be a bitter kept as well. and the breakfast facilities including breakfast are really a bummer. however i guess it is still a good value for the yard...

We have just returned from almost a week in this resort and had a wonderful time. The setting was exactly as advertised and seemed to be a good value for the price. Claudette is a gracious and efficient hostess - she was always available for any need and helpful when asked, but never intrusive or hovering. Breakfast on the front porch each morning was a great start to our days. Our room was clean, comfortable, and charming. We are not sure what some earlier reviewers expected, but we felt that the web site very accurately depicted the resort and its amenities. The entire house was clean, bright, and peaceful. The bus stops right in front, for those who wanted to travel the island that way. The walk to Oak Bluffs center requires caution if you use the main street (NY Ave), but is very doable. We would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a quiet, welcoming, friendly place to stay on MV!

Room Tip: We had one of the smallest rooms, but found it to be very comfortable. We faced the front street, b...

MightyAlbion,

I could not agree with you more. In fact you found adjectives that better/best describe what we felt during our visit, e.g. windowless basement, over-priced and just stale and antiquated; really an overall let down especially if you have had nicer and become accustomed to better experiences. So, much for expectations. Thanks for your review - it confirmed our experience!

This place turned out to be very ordinary, but the price was the highest I found ($225 per night). I had to stay there because other places were full. It was clean and quiet enough, but the room was small and tight, the bathroom was old-fashioned and inconveniently arranged and the nothing-fancy continental breakfast was in a windowless basement. It's also located a mile or so outside of town, so you need transportation to go and come. I can think of several more annoyances related to M.V. "Resort" (there's a tennis court), but perhaps you already get the idea. Give this place a pass; there are plenty of others for less money.

Room Tip: I only saw my own room, which was in a separate annex. Maybe the rooms in the main house are bigger...

The very first time that I stayed at Martha's Vineyard Resort even though I had been going to MV for over 30 years! I found the Owner to be very freiendly and I felt extremely comfortable being by myself. The rooms were much larger than other Inns that I had rented with private baths, inside and exterior sitting areas.

There was complimentary wine in the room and complimentary tea/coffee, continental breakfast in the mornings and a 10 minute walk into town. The Martha's Vineyard Resort helped to make my Labor Day Holiday one of the best ever and I can't wait to go back!!!!!!!!!!
