“Best hotel location - gorgeous historical hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

What can I say this hotel is worth every penny. Not only is it in a lovely area but the hotel is gorgeous with larger than average rooms. The staff was wonderful as well. Parking a little difficult but other than that we loved our stay here and plan to stay here again next time we are in Martha's Vineyard.

Room Tip: stay in Edgartown, it is a lovely place.

My family has been coming to the Vineyard for the last 7 years. We have stayed at the Kelley House a couple of times. Overall we have been very pleased. The location is great! You can walk to anything in Edgartown. Upon making our reservations the staff was helpful in securing a room of our preference. The staff is friendly, but the inn used to have a wonderful inn keeper that is no longer here. The current staff is not nearly as knowledgable about the hotel or the town. The inn does offer muffins in the morning and cookies and milk at night. The kids love that! The pool and parking lot seem small but are adequate. The housekeeping leaves a lot to be desired. We stayed for a week and the toilet was not cleaned one time (I used my own Lysol wipes) and the bed linens were not changed. This may seem picky but for the price this stuff should be done. That is the most disappointing part of the stay. Cleanliness should be a top priority. Again, overall a good experience. Hoping they improve that area.

Room Tip: You can request rooms - room 106 is across from the public restroom. Avoid that. Room 315 & 316...

We stayed here june 25-29 and were surprised at how great everything was. Front desk couldn't have been nicer, muffins in morning and cookies at night was nice touch. Walk out the back gate by pool and there's edgartown pier and fabulous greasy cheeseburgers at quarterdeck. Walk out front door and there's everything else right in center of edgartown...very happy there was fan in closet as it drowns out footsteps upstairs. Will be back.

2 couples on 2 day stop to MV chose Kelley house based on prior reviews....the king rooms were large and comfortabe but our first floor end of hall room had slanting floor....bed was positioned with mild head down tilt...which after showing to evening staff was addressed adequately with addition of "leveling" wood blocks at head board feet.
Unfortunately our companion traveling couple was quite upset for lack of room clean-up by 3-4 PM after returning from exploration/shopping which was still not addressed by 9 PM. We were told that only one of the room clean-up staff had showed for work that day...we also found out that new ownership takeover was to occur the following week and that many if not all of the current staff were unsure of their longer term work status. The staff we encountered were helpful and friendly...and deserved to keep their jobs!

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate our engagement and stayed in the Courthouse. The room was modern with all the perfect amenities and the service was impeccable. I will recommend to everyone! Great location and easy access to all means of transportation. A five star accommodation for sure! You've exceeded our expectations!

I recently stayed at the Kelly House and was very disappointed in the accommodations. We had a double double on the first floor and while I love the charm of the old Inn, I must say the bathroom needed a major overhaul. The shower is old and the flooring and wallpaper need to be redone by a professional. I had to ask to have the mold on the shower faucet removed two times. The carpeting in the room is old and stained and an upgrade to flat screen tv's is needed.
Overall I was very disappointed once I walked through the warm and inviting foyer.
