All around very pleasant stay. Location is perfect and staff were very accommodating. Thank you for keeping our bags too! We stayed here 2 nights over the 4th of July and wish we had booked an extra night. We will be back.

The MV surf side by far has the best location,the nicest staff and the cleanest motel on the island! They were so helpful in assisting us in every request and question we had during our stay. Thank you to all of you for making our trip to the vineyard the best.

You can walk from either ferry. it's right off of the Marina, you can walk to several beaches. Its very close to the Flying Horses Carousel... More

We spent only 1 night at this motel but I wish we could have stayed longer. We had a garden room which was very comfortable, clean and quiet. We had our dog with us and the management couldn't have been nicer. They even offered to bring our dog to the office and watch him if he became noisy - he... More

Stayed here last winter. A man gave me permission to bring my dog. Front office and room were dingy. Bed was uncomfortable. Stayed for two unpleasant days during a blizzard. Stairs were icy and hazardous. No one cleaned them. The worst was when I was leaving I was walking my dog down the icy stairs when a man appeared out... More

Spent 4 days at the Surfside over Thanksgiving and would highly recommend it to anyone who travels with their dog. Reasonably priced and conveniently located to restaurants, The Campground and the beach, this hotel is cozy, clean and comfortable. At the front desk, we received a welcome package for Maggie, our Boxer, containing some "pet rules" and some treats. Being... More

My husband and I just spend 2 nights at Surfside Motel for our Anniversary and couldn't be happier with our choice. We didn't bring our car, as it was only for the weekend, so it was essential that the hotel is close to the ferry. The location was perfect, a couple of minutes away ! The room was clean and...

Surfside is a great hotel in a great location. I have stayed at the hotel in the past and recently booked it for my parent's wedding anniversary. We all loved our stays. The location is fantastic. It is a short walk from the Steamship and close to many bars, restaurants and shops . The room was large, modern and clean.... More

We booked two nights at the Surfside. When we arrived at Martha's Vineyard, we were early but the staff let us store our bags in the office while we walked around Oak Bluffs. First, the location is excellent, just yards away from the ferry dock, yet fairly quiet. We could walk to all of the Lake Ave and Circuit Ave... More

We have stayed here every year in September for the past 4 years. Every year there are small improvements to the motel. Pet friendly place to stay, helpful staff, and nice walkable location. I enjoy the small, beautifully kept garden. The standard rooms are nothing special but adequate for us and the price is good for MV. Looking forward to... More
