Bryan L wrote a review Jul 2
On our first-ever visit to Martha's Vineyard, the Hob Knob was, in a word, perfect. Like a microcosm of Edgartown itself - pristine grounds, breathtaking charm, immaculately maintained, and full of friendly, welcoming people - the hotel and its staff immediately felt like we were visiting an old family friend. The "luxury" of this experience is that - somehow - there is always someone available to take care of you, while simultaneously understanding when to retreat into the background to let you enjoy the private moments and make it feel like home. Rooms are cozy, quiet and well-appointed. The wrap-around porch and outside dining areas are inviting and comfortable, providing great vignettes to read a newspaper, take your morning coffee, or share a Scotch or glass of wine. (The inn does not have a bar, but provides glassware and ice in the living room area if you'd like to bring your own.) A pleasant walk down Main Street takes you by shops, historical sites, and gets you to the water in no time. We already miss our stay in the Vineyard and Hob Knob and can't wait to return!

Property's Favorite Review
My husband and I stayed for the first time at the Hob Knob last weekend. It was our anniversary and when I called to make the reservation, I mentioned it to Abby, the manager. Not only did we have a spectacular room, by they put a bottle of champagne in the room for our arrival with cookies and a very thoughtful note. What an amazing way to start our vacation! We also had a wonderful conversation with Kari. She gave us some suggestions for dinner that night and they were exactly what we were looking for. Both Abby and Kari couldn't do enough for us to ensure we had an amazing stay! We were also treated to a delicious breakfast each morning that was made and served to us by Eugenia and Duda. They served it to us where ever we wanted to sit and always checked to see if we wanted anything else. I truly can't say enough about this hotel. The location, atmosphere and most importantly the staff, made this a must do each year! We LOVED it! Thank you for everything!!!

The Hob Knob Inn is a perfect get-away! My communications with both Abby and Sam could not have been better, from the time I made our reservations to the time we had to leave. They made certain we had everything we needed or requested. Eugenia and the kitchen staff prepared and served fresh and delicious breakfasts every morning of our 6-day stay. The beautiful Inn was so very quiet, with quaint indoor spaces to sit and read a book and a variety of lovely outdoor spaces snuggled into the most magnificent landscaping you can imagine. The Inn is just walking distance from the center of Edgartown, where there are restaurants and shopping, and provided free parking for our rental car which we used to explore the rest of the island. We have had the opportunity to visit Martha's Vineyard several times, but this was and will continue to be our very favorite. We can't wait to return to the The Hob Knob Inn!!

HELD HOSTAGE. Booked the suite for Memorial Day weekend . Chose hotel because it was suppose to have won accolades as “ the most dog friendly hotel in all of Cape Cod” . Quite the contrary When we arrived we never were greeted with dog welcome package, not even a biscuit to be offered It was a cold rainy Memorial Day in which we stayed indoors in our room most of the day . We didn’t even come down for breakfast We left dogs for a few hours in the mid afternoon to get dinner We were constantly harassed by the inn keeper that our dogs may be barking. We would have to drop what we’re doing and drive back from across the island . Not once when we drove back did we hear the dogs bark. Inn keeper claiming she was trying to be “proactive” At one point we were having a 5 course tasting/ wine pairing at Charlotte inn several blocks away, which we had to leave as we were starting dinner to check on our dogs which the inn keeper later stated she realized only barked a second as we closed the room door to leave. Our room was situated on Main Street with active rain storms throughout the day . To hear and occasional bark is one the thing but to claim our dogs were consistently barking all day long is another especially when we’re leaving dinner to rush over to make sure our dogs are Furthermore once it was made clear that they did not want us leaving our dogs there was no hospitality or accommodations made by the inn keeper to see how she could make our experience better Not once did we come down for breakfast and the inn keeper never offered to bring something upstairs for us Overall. I would say that the hotel is in a prime downtown location in edgartown, has well appointed rooms, and late night chocolate chip cookies However this hotel ultimately fails as they label themselves dog friendly. There is a big difference to say pets are tolerated versus welcome If you are traveling with your pet companions I would highly suggest skipping this hotel

“Held Hostage” is truly unfair and unwarranted in this instance. We pride ourselves on being an award-winning hotel pet-friendly hotel. We will acknowledge in an effort to accommodate your early arrival, we did not follow our own protocol with our traditional pet arrival amenity. This was our mistake and we waived the pet-fee for your room. Your dogs barked when they were left alone, which resulted in disturbance complaints. You were contacted by our manager only when the dogs continued to bark in an effort to mitigate the circumstances with other guests. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations, it is always our wish to exceed them. We have many, many happy dog owners as guests and rarely do we have an incident like this.
