“Great stay at the Madison Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

My wife and I took a short weekend trip to MV and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The location was very convenient to all the key attractions in town. The innkeepers are wonderful people and the room was very clean. We'll definitely come back!

My daughter and I were looking for an economical room in a convenient location for one night's stay. The Madison Inn offered us room # 1 which had two single beds, a small private balcony and a large private bath.
We arrived around noon which was way before their check-in time, however they were just about finished cleaning the room and suggested that we wait 10 mins in the lobby or on the front porch and then could occupy our room. We were happy to do so.
Our room was small with two single beds, a bureau with TV. There was adequate storage for our clothes in a chest of drawer. The bathroom was generously sized, the shower had good water pressure and ample hot water.
Bottled water and snacks were provided in the room. Coffee,tea, cookies and fruits were offered off the lobby. Here was also a refrigerator were guests could store their food items.
Madison at the front desk was friendly when taking the reservation and later upon check-in, answering our questions about sightseeing and transportation.
The next morning we were able to store our luggage in their storage room until it was time to board the ferry.
We were satisfied with the accommodations at the price we paid and would recommend this inn for a short stay.

Stayed here twice recently – the first time with my husband and then with a friend. Both times were excellent experiences. My husband and I stayed in Room 16 which is the only one with a fridge and microwave which was a big plus. If you stood in the bathroom and peeked out the window, there was even an ocean view. The room was very pleasant and comfortable. The shower was a bit small but adequate. The room was on the first floor and also right by the 24 hour hospitality bar where one can grab tea, coffee, water, or light snack.
My friend and I stayed in Room 3 which is upstairs and has twin beds. Very cozy room also. The entire Inn is immaculate and very well decorated – makes one feel comfy. The atmosphere is very friendly and guests gather in the main lobby to play cards, games or just chat. We meet several delightful folks while there. Location is great, close to everything in Oak Bluffs. NOTE: the noise level from outside can be loud esp. the trash pickup in the early AM. Best to use the a/c unit or ear plugs to drown out the noise if you are a light sleeper.
They have a common fridge if you do have anything you need to keep cold (wine, soft drinks, leftovers, etc.). They offer lots of amenities such as beach chairs, towels, baskets, popsicles, and so much more. You can drop off your luggage early or after you check out and pick up when needed. There is a small private courtyard which is quite pleasant to sit in and enjoy some quiet time. They really do try to make your stay as accommodating as possible. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful- Blanche and Mary are great. Definitely will be back and highly recommend.

My mother and I visited Martha's Vineyard for the first time and stayed at The Madison Inn in Oak Bluffs. What a relaxing and clean inn with a wonderful location. The price is right and the location was close to everything - shops, restaurants, and activities. Blanche and Mary make this place special. We hope to return again soon. You can't go wrong with a stay at The Madison Inn.

You cannot be disappointed with this inn; location, staff, amenities, price they do it right!!! If you do not need an ocean view this is the place. Everything is easy walking distance; beach, restaurants,stores, buses. Just can not say enough.

This inn has very well decorated and comfortable rooms, a beautiful little courtyard which gives privacy even if the inn is located in the heart of Oak Bluffs, a few minutes walk to the ferry, Ocean Park, shops, etc. Extremely nice staff, very helpful and thoughtful. The 24 hour self-service "bar" where you can get real good coffee, teas and healthy snacks is a plus. We can also store our own goodies in a fridge. Could not ask for anything more. Already recommended this gem of a place to family and friends. I hope to go back as soon as possible...

Recently, my husband and I stayed two nights at the Madison Inn. We loved every minute of our stay. The rooms and beds were comfortable and very clean! The Inn was lovely with lots of outside seating - plenty of space for relaxing. The bar of coffee, fruit, granola bars and fresh cookies were a lovely touch. And to top it all off, visiting with the ladies at the front desk was so nice. They were so helpful and accommodating. Will be back...hopefully sooner than later.
