“Home away from home!”
Reviewed April 17, 2008

Our first visit to the Admiral Benbow Inn was 6 years ago and every time we walk through the front door it feels like "coming home!" Mary and Bill Moore are wonderful innkeepers- full of kindness, joy and especially knowledgable about the island in terms of great suggestions for restaurants, events and places to see. The rooms are well kept and clean. We have stayed there both with children and also as a romantic couple getaway and the Inn truly serves all on any occasion. We have stayed at the Inn in each season of the year- the springtime is beautiful, especially with the koi pond and beautiful gardens. We also have stayed in the winter time and feel that Mary and Bill do a wonderful job decorating the Inn at Christmas time- so cozy and charming. We highly reccommend the Admiral Benbow Inn- one of Martha's Vineyard's charms!

The Admiral Benbow was quite an unexpected bargain on an otherwise pricey island. The room was beautiful and clean, the innkeepers friendly (Martha even drove us to get a rental car because she didn't want to see us catching a bus in the rain!), and the house Cocker Spaniel Gilligan a warm little extra. However, don't expect lavish breakfasts. It's continental only, but certainly a sufficient and filling way to start the day. We will definitely be back. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate!
